What I’m Reading: Catching the Wind

I was hunting for a good book.  I’ve cancelled the renewal of my Audible subscription.  It’s one way I can trim the budget.  I have a few credits left but have been saving them for “THE BEST BOOK EVER”.  So far the cancelling hasn’t been something I regret.  I’ve been working harder to find books through other free online sources like Hoopla Digital.

I found this book there.

It’s Catching the Wind by Melanie Dobson.

So did I like the book??? Continue reading

What I’m Reading: Spilled Milk

I just finished the audio book Spilled Milk by K.L. Randis.  I was first attracted to this book when I was looking up a different book on Amazon.  This book had 4.7 stars.  That is a rarity so I decided to give it a look.  After reading a couple reviews I decided it was worth burning an Audible credit for.


So did I like it?  YES.  I did like it.  This is a book that I’ve gone on that thought about well after I read the book.

What I’m Reading: Tending Roses

I just finished up the audio book Tending Roses by Lisa Wingate.  I’ve read several other books by this author and was happy to see a new selection from her that I had not read.

Tending Roses by [Wingate, Lisa]

All in all a good book.  All of Wingate’s books, to date, that I’ve read have been good.  They always seem to have an underlying message to stop and appreciate life. This one focused on being content with what you have.  I need to be reminded of that from time to time.  They remind me a  Nicholas Sparks book…all good, a little predictable, good people books.  Perfect for a feel good book.

What I’m Reading: Hidden Among the Stars

I just finished up listening to the book Hidden Among the Stars by Melanie Dobson.  I saw that this was a book about WWII times and that’s one of my favorite time period books to read so I grabbed it up.

The book was good.  It does have a bit of a christian fiction theme to it but not super preachy so it was okay.  Don’t get me wrong, christian fiction is okay but I don’t always want to feel like I’m at church when I’m reading a book.  For me, the “twist” wasn’t a big twist but that didn’t deter me from the book.
