Bookish Book Reviews: Bookish People by Susan Coll, Book Lovers by Emily Henry #BookReview #Audiobook #2022AudiobookChallenge

I love books about Books, Bookstores, Libraries, Authors, Publishers and Publishing Houses and all things bookish. Bookish People is set in and around a bookstore, and Book Lovers features a book agent and an editor. I read one and listened to the other. As you can see from my reviews, I definitely liked one more than the other.

Stories of Friendship: Lifesaving for Beginners by Josie Lloyd, The Wedding Dress Sewing Circle by Jennifer Ryan #BookReview #Audiobook @JosieLloydbooks @JenniferiRyan @HQstories @RandomHouse

Stories of friendship, especially multi-generational friendships, are ones that I find uplifting and enjoyable. Lifesaving For Beginners and The Wedding Dress Sewing Circle are very different from each other, but both have themes of friendship and support, as well as strong independent female characters. I enjoyed them both for different reasons and recommend them.

Three Thriller Reviews: Stay Awake by Megan Goldin, Wrong Place, Wrong Time by Gillian McAllister & 56 Days by Catherine Ryan Howard #BookReview #Audiobook #2022AudiobookChallenge @megangoldin @GillianMAuthor @cathryanhoward @HarperCollinsCa @HarperAudio @MacmillanAudio @BlackstoneAudio @StMartinsPress

I enjoy a good thriller and when I find one with a different premise, I want to snuggle down and see where the author is going to take me. Well, these three all satisfied that hunger. All of these stories had plots that were different from others I had read and pulled me into the stories, albeit not right from the start. It took a bit to become immersed in the story, but I definitely recommend them all. I also did read/listens with all of them and recommend either format depending upon your preference.

Stories of Family: The Lost and Found Girl by Maisey Yates, In the Middle of Hickory Lane by Heather Webber #BookReview #Audiobook #2022AudiobookChallenge @HarperAudio @MacmillanAudio @HQNBooks @ForgeReads @maiseyyates @BooksbyHeather

I love books about family whether they are estranged, keeping secrets and finding one another, and these two were wonderful. Both were read/listen, but more listen than read. I enjoyed both of these stories and definitely recommend them if you enjoy Women’s Fiction, Romance, Secrets, and Family. Both of these books were provided to me by the publisher upon request. The ratings and opinions shared are my own.

Mini-Reviews: Home at Summer’s End by Alys Murray, Summer Hours by Amy Mason Doan #BookReview #Audiobook #20BooksofSummer2022 #2022AudiobookChallenge #BeatTheBacklist2022

I am almost finished my #20BooksofSummer Challenge with Home at Summers End being #18 and Summer Hours being #19. I am enjoying this challenge even though reading backlist books with “Summer” in the title makes it a bit harder than I thought.

Robert Brynda’s Detective Erika Foster Series 5 & 6: Cold Blood & Deadly Secrets #BookReview #Audiobook #BeatTheBacklist2022 #FinishingTheSeries2022 #2022AudiobookChallenge @Bookouture

With Robert Byrndza’s long awaited 7th book in his Detective Erika Foster series coming out this summer, I wanted to catch up on this series. I recently purchased several audiobooks in this series during an audible sale, so I was able to do a read/listen, however, I basically ended up just listening to Jan Cramer’s wonderful narration.

Thank You For Listening by Julia Whelan, Run Rose Run by James Patterson and Dolly Parton #BookReview #Audiobook #2022AudiobookChallenge @justjuliawhelan @DollyParton

I recently listened to two audiobooks that I enjoyed. They are very different from each other, but both good in their own way. I recommend them both to those who enjoy listening to or might want to try listening to audiobooks. I was provided both of these books to listen to upon request. The rating and opinions shared are my own.
