So, I have the honor of closing out the week by relistening to favorites.  If you have been here a while, you know I have a fairly long commute to and from work and I utilize that time by listening to Audio books.

My TBR for the week should be up fairly soon but this post should have been up two days ago!

Either way, let me know if you are participating and what your TBR looks like!

We are all so excited!

Bridget Jones’s Baby by: Helen Fielding

Bridget Jones's Baby

I picked this up while I was on vacation to complete my Bridget Jones collection and I listened to the quick audio book of this in a few days once I was back at work.  This is very much like this movie and was a fun read.  I love the Bridget Jones series and so I was anticipating liking this book as well.

It wasn’t anything revolutionary, but it was enjoyable and had the same wit that the other books in the series do.

I gave this 4 crowns.

Reawakened by: Colleen Houck

Reawakened

I have finally started this series and I am so glad that I did.  I love the way Colleen weaves mythology with storytelling.  Her characters are so enjoyable and lovable.  I loved her Tiger’s Curse series and now this one is right up there with it.

I listened to this book on audio and loved the narration.  This was like listening to a movie.  I was very invested in the story and could envision the scenes.  This series involves Egyptian mythology and I am obsessed.

I am currently listening to the next book in this series and realize that the 3rd doesn’t come out until August.  THis is the perfect combination of  the fantasy, magical realism and contemporary genres.

I gave this book 5 crowns.

My Review:
I absolutely loved this book.  I am not a gardener by any means, in fact, last year I killed a CACTUS!  A CACTUS!  How is that even possible?!  Anyway, each chapter has a brief one page tidbit about gardening that is quite cute and sometimes funny.
The setting of the story, a gardening class, helps to bring all of the characters of the story together and leads to the underlying theme of nurturing yourself and tending to your own needs.
Lili’s story is one of heartache but then she starts to see glimmers of hope and happiness when surrounded by the new growth of the garden and the support of new friends.  I can’t say enough about this book and really do recommend it.
I gave this book 5 crowns.

I received this E-ARC in exchange for an honest review from the publishers through Netgalley.

The Best Man by: Kristan Higgins

The Best Man

I received this book at Book Con in 2015.  I don’t really read Romance novels but I saw that it was available on my Overdrive app as an audio book and decided to give it a try.  I am really glad that I did.

Yes, there was a lot of mentioning of breasts and it did get annoying but the story was fun.  I liked the characters of Chief Levi Cooper and Faith Holland.  I found myself laughing along and really getting into the story.  Faith is a young woman who moved away from her family and home after her wedding day literally fell apart at the altar.

This is book 1 in the Blue Heron series and I wouldn’t mind picking up the next one to see what it is about.  If you enjoy a fun,contemporary, romance novels, then give this series a shot.

I gave it 4 crowns.
