I really liked Traveler's Rest by Ann Tatlock. It was a free book I got to review, but I ended up really really liking it.


I have completely given up on trying to find free downloads on Kindle. They are the epidemy of "you get what you pay for." I am trying real hard to "shop" from my own bookshelves this summer, which have lots that I haven't read... but it has left me craving a good one, which I haven't found lately!


Discovery of Witches and the second book by Deborah Harkness - some time travel in the 2nd book. The Lock Artist by Steve Hamilton. I borrowed After Life because it was recommended by Nancy Pearl (you know you can borrow one book a month with the Kindle?) - just started that one Before I Go To Sleep by SJ Watson - really good, tense and even though I sort of figured it out, I keep reading to see how it worked out. Listening to Gone Girl (mystery) and Quiet: The Power of Introverts (non fiction) at the gym. So many books to read/listen to. Thank goodness for the library as well as my Kindle and Audible accounts.

The Kindle deal of the day is kind of a hit or miss for sure, but I always check it out as well as the specials they have each month - I have really gotten some great winners then.


Will check them out. I adore The Bloggess! Have you ever read Mishka Shubaly? His stuff is edgy, funny, self-depracating, interesting, and a little dark. I've read his first two singles and am going to get the newest one.


Glad to see another Tana French fan -- Into the Woods and The Likeness were both just so incredible. (I've read both multiple times, and they are still just as compelling as the first time). The relationships between the characters are just so spot-on. Definitely enjoyed Faithful Place too, and can't wait to get my hands on Broken Harbour.

Currently in the middle of The Leftovers by Tom Perotta, and loving every wor.d

About Me

  • Carmen Staicer is a whirlwind of energy and execution, who never sleeps and drinks way too much coffee. She works from home as Social Media Programs Manager for SheKnows, and is the mom to six kids, most of whom play instruments, sing or dance and all of whom are much smarter than she will ever be. In other words, her house is never ever quiet or still. A concentration of asthma, food allergies, spectrum disorders and learning disabilities means that she spends an awful lot of time second guessing herself and Dr. Googling, as well as learning to cook everything the family might like to eat. In her spare time, she enjoys reading, boxing (she has her Black Belt in Muay Thai), sleeping, exploring coffee shops, photography, ballet class and cooking. She excels in being a smart mouth and has her major in sarcasm, with a dual minor in BS studies and avoiding laundry.
