And while I gather up our book-thrills, I’m watching a thriller while I do it. I had to “rent” this one on Amazon as it’s still in theaters, and so far, so good. No regrets on paying for it yet. The main girl has a stalker… so, you know those FREAK. ME. OUT!!! It’s called “Watcher“. Not terrifying, horror movie wise (but if it was MY real life? I would be terrified!!). Certainly creepy and disconcerting (oops, I just hit a super scary moment) and she’s in another country where she doesn’t even speak the language, so she is already not comfortable. And now neither am I.
TAKE A LOOK AT WHAT WE FOUND FOR THE WEEKEND !!
- Thank You for Listening: A Novel by Julia Whelan <— RECENT RELEASE & BACK ON THE LIST ‘CAUSE ROCHELLE LOVED IT!
Rochelle: I really love Julian Whelan. Thanks for listening. A long extremely well written novel. I love that she didn’t make it into 3 books. Her first book My Oxford Year hooked me to her talent. She narrates with so many characters.
R. Renee: I can’t wait to read (or listen to) TFL!
Some summer reads in past couple weeks…
- Every Summer After by Carley Fortune <— TASHA J LOVED IT!
Tasha J: I read Every Summer After, loved it!
- Cee Bowerman <— KATHY IS LOVING THIS AUTHOR!
Kathy: I have been binge reading Cee Bowerman. She is a new to me author and I have been devouring her books.
- I’m Fine and Neither Are You By Camille Pagán <— SUPER-BARGAIN PRICED & AMY ENJOYED THIS ONE!
Amy: I started I’m Fine and Neither Are You last night, and so far I am LOVING the writing. We’ll see how the actual story goes, but I flew through the first three chapters without even realizing it. Fingers crossed it stays this good!
Amy: I’m at 40% of I’m Fine and Neither Are You, and I’m STILL enjoying it! The writing isn’t flowery or overly descriptive but rather the author packs a punch with her minimalist and straightforward style. The interactions and relationship between the h and her husband are absolutely relatable and just so REAL.
- Pretend You’re Mine: A Small Town Love Story (Benevolence Book 1) by Lucy Score <— EFFIE (& “Read Me”) AGREE WITH MY 5-STAR REVIEW!
Effie: I absolutely loved this book. Loved it, loved it.
Read Me: I agree 100% with your review. I have read over 5000 romances and Pretend You’re Mine remains in my top 5 of all time. I have read it several times over the years and love it more and more for all the reasons you mentioned.
