I‘ve been terrible about sharing what I‘ve been reading on here so here is what I‘ve currently read in July. The highlight of the month so far is A River of Golden Bones, with Done and Dusted in second.

robinb I‘ve been wondering about the Rebel Blue Ranch series. The covers are retro cool and initially drew me in (and made me laugh/cringe at times). 😊 Just wasn‘t sure if the writing/storylines were worth the read. Sounds like you think so. 😉 2w
ShananigansReads I didn‘t know this cover collage feature existed. Thanks, even though it is not the point of your post. 🙃 2w
kimmypete1 @robinb it was light and fun and just what I needed 2w
kimmypete1 @ShananigansReads it‘s new as of maybe two weeks ago? You can access it on the stats page, the share icon. I love storygraph so much, continually being updated with new features! 2w
ShananigansReads @kimmypete1 yep, I found it. It will help make the monthly round up so much easier. 2w

Definitely a pic, thought it was not quite what I was expecting. It‘s fiction, but felt like true crime, not a thriller.

May in Review.

Pretty solid reading month, which is a surprise as May is usually a low month for me. The best of the month was The Silence of Monsters and Rainbow Black.

Expiration Dates | Rebecca Serle

Expiration dates was an unexpected delight for me. I really loved the different things (fate vs choice) that is brought up for discussion, especially at the end. It never once occurred to me that the thing that happened at the end would have been done, but it does make sense and I'm glad it happened because Daphne needed the wake up call. I loved how it ended and it was the warm fuzzy book I needed to read right now.

This memoir is FANTASTIC. Despite the fact that the only things I have in common with Leslie Jones is that we‘re both women so much of this resonated with me. Highly recommend the audio because she went off script a lot (unless you really don‘t like cussing, then read it in print).

This is just absolutely not my jam. The sexytimes were not appealing and Alex crossed my line of alpha male possessiveness I can tolerate.

The writing was good so if you like darker sexytimes and extreme alpha males this one is for you.

mcctrish #sexytimes I laughed out loud but honestly I‘m not sure I could deal with them on audio ( I tend to skim read them in print 🤣) 4mo
kimmypete1 @mcctrish I‘m sure in print I would have been fine, bc skimming, but goodness on audio I just couldn‘t.🤣 4mo

Picked this solely because of the cover. It was dark and messed up so if that‘s not your vibe then move right along. I loved it and it made my roadtrip home go fast!
