And I just love this sweet message that she sends to us.
“First Maryse and all the blog family. I love, I mean love waking every morning and reading what is inspiring in books, food and family. There was a short time when there was no blog and I almost panicked. I know you live in Florida and I couldn’t help but worry.
So often I wanted to post but my morning fingers don’t work on my phone. But I was inspired to share my 10 top 5 star reads. I listened to or read 81 books this year. That is only 7 books a month.
Thank you all for sharing and I look forward to more years of Maryse’s Blog. Thank you Maryse!”
I’m SO glad you’re with us, Rochelle. And I completely understand your tired morning fingers. LOL!!!
Now… Rochelle’s Top 10 Five Star Reads for 2018 😀
Dark Notes by Pam Godwin <— So well written and a book that stays with you for a long time. This is probably #1 of my 10. Pam is a new author for me and she captures me one page one and takes me for a ride. This book is utterly engrossing and addicting. I listened to this on Audible and was captivated.
Road Trip, Head Tripped and Field Tripped by Nicole Archer <— LOL funny and an author who can pull in details with humor and poise.
Hydraulic Level 5 (The Hydraulic Series Book 1) and Skygods (The Hydraulic Series Book 2) by Sarah Latchaw <— I HATE cliffs. If I had known. Book 3 was never written. But yes, there is a but, these two books are so well worth the Cliff. Not really a cliff but a unfinished story.
Any book that can take us on the river or flying through the sky and have me wanting more has my attention. This is such a fun book.
No Tomorrow by Carian Cole <— Broken Rock Stars just do it for me.
The Girl in Times Square: A Novel by Paulina Simons <— You cannot rush Paulina. She gives history and ties it up and doesn’t miss any detail. She can paint a perfect picture with her words. All her works are superb and this is no exception. Don’t be in a hurry and absorb all she has to offer.
Five (The Mister Series Book 6) by J.A. Huss <— It is JA Huss What can I say. She rocks the romance world.
The Lucky Ones by Tiffany Reisz <— Tiffany has always been a go to author for me and last year The Red was on my top 10. I now have the Lucky Ones which is a road of twist and turns. Kept me guessing to the end.
Keep Her Safe: A Novel by K.A. Tucker <— KA books keep getting better and she has a way of using expressions, history, locations and traditions which she weaves into her stories. They come alive.
Still Me: A Novel (Me Before You Trilogy Book 3) by Jojo Moyes <— Give me any Jojo and I am happy.
One is a Promise (Tangled Lies Book 1) by Pam Godwin <— After Dark Notes I devoured all of Pam’s Books. So good and a twisted plot. Who will she choose. I loved this book.
My Oxford Year: A Novel by Julia Whelan <— Best New Author. Writing is Phenomenal.
