February 2018 Favorites

We're officially in spring down south (or at least my yard thinks so) and it's making me distracted and hard to please. I find I'd rather just stare out the window or go for a walk than do anything else? Anyway, February was a good reading month as evidenced by the four choices we have below. Click on the images to purchase or to explore a title more.

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid -- (from our review)--Evelyn Hugo was a complex character with such a self awareness, at the end of the novel, that I had a ton of admiration and sorrow for all that she lived with/through/for. Her story made me once again realize how fortunate I am to have what I have and live in the time that I do; it also made me remember how important it is to live MY life on my terms, and the terms of my family. 

Next Year in Havana by Chanel Cleeton --(from our review)--Next Year in Havana is a story of love and loyalty between a young woman and her family, her lover, her country, and her friend. It's one that will keep you thinking long after the story has ended. 

Ryan's Bed by Tijan--(from our review)-- I didn't know what to expect with my first Tijan book. The cover and the synopsis drew me in and so at 9 pm on a Saturday night, I decided to read the first chapter....which quickly turned into reading the first 10%....which then turned into me reading until I could no longer keep my eyes open and grabbing my kindle as soon as my eyes opened the next morning. 

Memphis by Ginger Scott--(from our review)--I love that Ginger Scott always keeps us on our toes. In Memphis she gives us new characters and a world that feels gritty and run down. When we first meet Liv I couldn't help but wonder how in the world Ginger was going to take her out of a seemingly hopeless situation--she was down and out for the count, or so I thought. Turns out she's got a spine of steel and an attitude that wouldn't let her wallow, though once you see what she's up against, you wouldn't necessarily blame her for wanting to.

We have a ton of great reads lined up for March. Until then, happy reading~
