Romance Mini-Reviews: A Lot Like Forever, The Forgiving Quilt, The Next Best Day #BookReview

I do enjoy a good romance, and all three of these are interesting and enjoyable. They are very different from one another, one being a family story, another an Amish romance and the last being a story dealing with trauma and PTSD and healing while finding romance.

Books with characters my age: The Highland Hens, Lost Luggage, The Golden Oldies #BookReview @BoldwoodBooks

So many of the books I read have main characters that are in the 20s and 30s and those days are long gone for me. I still enjoy them, but I love when I find books with characters that are closer to my age. (65). Judy Leigh is definitely a go to author for me when looking for more mature characters. I haven’t read a lot of Samantha Tonge’s books, but will be checking her backlist after reading Lost Luggage. If you enjoy books with older characters, a bit of romance, people enjoying life and friendship, check out these books.

Happy Holidays! Christmas Book Reviews: Christmas is for Children, Alfie the Christmas Cat, Just in Time for Christmas, It Happened One Christmas Eve #BookReview #Audiobook #20BooksForChristmas #2022AudiobookChallenge #BeatTheBacklist2022

Well, I did it. With still 14 days until the end of the month, I completed my 20 Books for Christmas 2022. Alfie the Christmas Cat was my 9th backlist book and 20th book on the original list. Of course, I didn’t stop at 20 and there are three more books reviewed her that are set at Christmas, making my total of Christmas stories since the beginning of October, 38. Will I make it to 40??

#FinishingTheSeries2022 – Wild River by Jennifer Snow: Novellas – An Alaskan Wedding, A Wild River Retreat, A Wild River Match & Wild Alaskan Hearts. Full Length – A Sweet Alaskan Fall & Stars Over Alaska

As per usual, I began reading this series partway through. As well, there were several short stories written between the full length books that I had not read. For the Finishing the Series challenge, I wanted to read all the short stories and the novels that I had missed along the way. This meant I wanted to read: An Alaskan Wedding #1.5, A Wild River Retreat #2.5, A Wild River Match #3.5 & Wild Alaskan Hearts #4.5 as well as Sweet Alaskan Fall #3 and Stars Over Alaska #4. I listened to the full length novels and read the short stories all over the last few weeks. I am glad I finished this series as I really enjoyed it. I’m not sure if it is finished or not, but I am caught up.

Happy Holidays! More Christmas Book Mini-Reviews: Let It Snow, A Match Made at Christmas, A Highlander’s Holiday Wife #BookReview #Audiobook #20BooksForChristmas #2022AudiobookChallenge

I am continuing to enjoy Christmas stories and only have one more to read for my 20 Books for Christmas Challenge. Let It Snow by Sue Moorcroft is #19, while A Match Made For Christmas and The Highlander’s Holiday Wife make #14 and #15 on the extra list. I can’t believe I have read 34 Christmas stories since the beginning of October. These three are so different from each other, but all were enjoyable and I am glad I picked them up.

Happy Holidays! A few more Christmas book reviews: A Wish for Winter, Once Upon a Royal Christmas, A Very Merry Bromance & The Christmas Hummingbird #BookReview #Audiobook #20BooksForChristmas @HarperAudio

Wow, Christmas is less than three weeks away, and I have been impressed with the bumper crop of Christmas and Holiday stories published this year. Between my Ho-Ho-Ho Readathon and 20 Books For Christmas, I have read over 30 books this year, some backlist, but most published this year. This latest group were almost all listened to and the audiobooks were all well done. Although one of these is somewhat predictable, I enjoyed them all and they brought me the warm, cozy, feeling I enjoy with my Christmas reading.
