My Review:
After having a few books that I added to my DNF list and reading a few mystery/thrillers, this book was the perfect book to read.  I laughed out loud and thoroughly enjoyed this book.  In today’s society we are all so obsessed with our appearances and this book really brought that to light in a humorous way.
Janey was a lovable character that was easy to relate to.  Her friends supported her in her decisions and were there with her through all of the crazy ways in which she attempted to lose weight.
This was an empowering story with a great ending.  I want to pick up the authors’ previous work.
I gave this book 5 crowns.

My Review:
This book reminded me of one of my favorite movies “The Bone Collector”.  It was very intense and definitely not easy to figure out.  It was a bit graphic, so if you are not into that, tread lightly here.
I really enjoyed the characters of Sam and his team on the task force.  They had a great camaraderie and  it made the story flow.  This was a fast read and one that I would happily read a sequel to.
I gave this book 4 crowns.

A pretty decent month.  I had a few books on my DNF list and I am ok with that.  I will not read something that does not interest me.  There are too many books out there that I would enjoy to push myself to read something that I am just not into.  When I put a book on my DNF list, it doesn’t mean it isn’t a good book; it just isn’t for me and I don’t review them.  To attach a review to it would be unfair.

How do you feel about putting a book on your DNF list?  How was your reading month?

Happy Reading!

My Review:
I read The Widow and it wasn’t my favorite read but I wanted to give the author another chance.  I struggled through this book.  It took a while for me to read 50% of it and then I contemplated just counting this as a DNF book.  However, I did want to find out the solution to the situation.
I was able to predict the ending though and that was disappointing to me.  I like to be completely thrown for a loop.  I will not be reading any more from this author in the future.  This isn’t the type of thriller/ mystery I like.
I gave this book 2 crowns.

This is book #2 in the Reawakened series.  We are following Lily on another journey in which she is the main focus of the story.  I can’t give you more information without giving away the first story.

I listened to this one on audio and enjoyed it as much as the first.  The third installment of this series comes out in August and I can’t wait to see what happens as this story leaves off on a bit of a cliff hanger.  If you love Egyptian mythology, this is the series for you.

I gave this book 5 crowns.
