Books about Books: The Littlest Library by Poppy Alexander, Booked on a Feeling by Jayci Lee #BookReview #Audiobook @HarperAudio @SarahWaights @authorjaycilee @SMPRomance

I love books that are set in libraries, bookshops, or publishing houses, as well at books with librarians, authors, bookstore owners or publishers as characters. The Littlest Library and Booked on a Feeling fit this theme as well as having romance, community and new beginnings. Both of these books were provided to me upon request. The rating and opinions shared are my own.

Ghost Sightings?: Hotel Nantucket by Elin Hilderbrand, The Book of Cold Cases by Simone St. James #BookReview #Audiobook #2022AudiobookChallenge #BeatTheBacklist2022 @HachetteAudio @littlebrown @PRHAudio @BerkleyPub

Two of my anticipated summer reads both involved ghosts to some degree. They were also both very well narrated audiobooks. These books were very different from one another, one a beach read, the other an atmospheric mystery/cold case, but both were very enjoyable.

Thriller Reviews: Things We Do in the Dark by Jennifer Hillier, Local Gone Missing by Fiona Barton #BookReview #Audiobook #2022AudiobookChallenge @MacmillanAudio @MinotaurBooks @BerkleyPub @JenniferHillier @figbarton

Needing to mix it up, I recently read two thrillers. One a psychological thriller, one a crime thriller. Both were enjoyable and kept me on the edge of my seat. Read on for my reviews.

Mini-Reviews: Sugar and Salt, For Butter or Worse, Bless Your Heart Rae Sutton #BookReview #Audiobook #2022AudiobookChallenge @HarperAudio @WmMorrowBooks @HQNBooks

Sugar and Salt, For Butter or Worse and Bless Your Heart, Rae Sutton all deal with issues affecting women. Whether is is sexism, justice, the other woman, proving yourself, or just dealing with preconceived notions of being emotional and not smart enough, they are all here in one way or another. These are very different stories from one another, with one being Christian Fiction and one being a bit steamy, but all were enjoyable to read or listen to.

Library Finds: Reminders of Him by Colleen Hoover, In a New York Minute by Kate Spencer #Audiobook #BookReview #2022AudiobookChallenge #BrillianceAudio @HachetteAudio @colleenhoover @katespencer

I have been fortunate to be able to find several audiobooks at my library that I have wanted to listen to, and these two have been recommended over and over. Reminders of Him by Colleen Hoover is an emotional story with several themes, one being romance, and In a New York Minute is a delightful rom-com. I recommend them both highly.

Old Friends Reunited, Sisters Behaving Badly by Maddie Please #BookReviews @BoldwoodBooks @MaddiePlease1

I absolutely love reading books by Maddie Please. They are uplifting, funny, full of friendship, some romance and new beginnings. I love that her characters are older, sending the message that life does not end at 60.
