Favorites Books for 2017

book-1760998_1280This year I read 129 books.

I’ve posted my Favorites with links to check out on my new author blog–Char’s Succulent Thoughts. It took forever to categorize books & then choose my favorites from each genre. (A work of love…you’re welcome. Ha ha) You can see ALL my books in that post on my Goodreads Year in Review link (It’s a pretty cool visual–Thanks Goodreads!)

New Website Look & Blog

618be8f5fb7e7a0d849a06d4d0d6a247If you click on my website in the menu bar above, you’ll see I’ve changed up the look of my website, and added a new blog to it.

Char’s Succulent Thoughts will be more of my author arena to post about book updates, giveaways, & random thoughts.

Joy in the Moments will lean more to book reviewing. At least, that’s what I’m thinking at the moment. We’ll see how things pan out, right?

Package Deal available for Pre-Order

Package Deal-Final (2)Last little tidbit to ring in the New Year is….

Package Deal will release January 10th.

I’m super excited for you to read this second book in the Ruled Out Romances. It was a blast to write, and I really, really love Hudson & Spring in this story. Spring really is an angel. Little Emma’s adorable and annoying (like any good toddler should be). Don’t you love her shoes on the cover?

I hope you’ll enjoy this. If you’re interested in being an early reader in exchange for leaving a review on Amazon, shoot me an email from the contact page and we’ll talk (Ebook only).

Have a Happy New Year!

I’ll talk to you next year.

Reading Year in Review (2016)

dsc04045It’s a new year. Whew! 2016 was rough for me and my family, but reading-wise, it was wonderful. Thank goodness for books! They save my sanity. I read 108 books last year. That’s down from 2015, but still nothing to spit at. My favorite genre is romance, so the majority of my books fell somewhere in that category. But I did branch out and read a few different genres, and some of those turned out to be my favorites. Here is a breakdown of how many books I read in each genre. At the end, I’ve listed my top picks and links to find them. There are a few FREEBIES, so grab them if you’re interested.

2015 Reading Summary

DSC07240-BReading is a huge part of my life. That, along with writing, is where a good portion of my time goes. As I looked over my Goodreads stats for 2015, I smiled as book images and memories came to mind. There are so many good books to read. I wish I had time to read even more than I did. There’s just a smorgasbord for my senses.

Year in Review

I read 117 books last year. That wasn’t as high as 2014, but I didn’t think it was half bad. Now before you feel bad about your reading compared to mine, I will admit that I’m a skimmer. That’s how I get Continue reading

Bounty of Books

At this time of year when we focus on all that we’re grateful for, I want to feature a few books I’ve read over the past months that have been winners.

I’m very thankful for books–for authors who write them, for being able to write my own and get those crazy imaginings out of my head, and for the ability to read. I love reading (if you can’t tell from my Goodreads log)…and these stories all rated the highest score from me. Continue reading
