Top Book for November

Hard choice to make, didn’t really have a top read this month. They all almost rated 4 stars. One 3 star. However the one I was most taken by was The Other Bennet Sister, mainly because it surprised me at how much I enjoyed it.

Looking forward to reading in December

Already started reading Archangel’s Sun and I don’t have my sight set on anything else in particular.

Main Reading Goals for November were.

  • read three books from my actual TBR shelf.   I read  one!
  • read one lurking book from my Kindle TBR Yes – Almost Just Friends.
  • keep up with the library reserves that land my way Pretty much, a few I put back after deciding after looking a bit more at them I didn’t want to read them just now.
  • read some of the annotated Pride and Prejudice.  I read a very small amount of it.
  • reread a book ! Yes, by accident because I’d forgotten I’d read it but it still counts because I realised and kept going.

Main Reading Goals for December

  • See if I can start off a cozy mystery series that I’ll keep reading. I have a first book to pick up from the library.
  • read on actual book from my TBR print shelf and one from my Kindle
  • think about some reading goals for 2021 and write them down.

Spring in Books

So while I know many of you are beginning to think Fall and Autumn, Down Under we are eyeing up Spring. So I thought today I’d look at books with Spring in their title that I’ve read.

book cover Spring Fever by Mary Kay Andrews was a great listen. Very entertaining and Kathleen McInerney made it even more so. I loved her voices for the characters, especially Sophie.

This is the story of Annajane who has been married to Mason and then divorced, but she continued to work for the company. She also attends the wedding of Mason to his new love Celia. And it is at that point the fun begins. Enter Sophie, Mason’s daughter, a five year old and completely adorable. She causes life to become interesting.


book coverWhen a favorite customer on his delivery route needs a favor, Tanner Richards agrees to help without a second thought. The last thing he expects is to face off against the man’s spitfire granddaughter. I enjoyed this one but have forgotten it, I always think I can go back and read such books and enjoy them all over again!

book cover And what is more appropriate. Because that’s what we are getting now, just the very first kiss of Spring. This is #14 in Emily March’s Eternity Springs series.  My review for Eternity Springs.

I note that I didn’t want it to end!

On the eve of the London Season, Jane Chance is about to make her entrance into high society. And after a childhood riddled with poverty and hardship, Jane intends to make a good, safe, sensible marriage. All goes according to plan until a dark, dangerous vagabond helps her rescue a dog. This is #3 in the Chance sisters series by Anne Gracie. I really enjoy her historical romance books.

So some of you may have read The Flatshare by Beth O’Leary. This book is another flat share book but set in Cologne in Germany and is about a motley group of older characters. My review


This visit back into books I’ve read with Spring in the title are making want to go back and reread them all because…. that’s right I am rather hazy about them all, apart from knowing they were all reads I totally enjoyed!
