I love books. L O V E.
No matter how the world changes the art of telling stories, visual, spoken or written, has not and will not change.

I can jump from genre to genre and be happy as long as a story is well told. Now a days, my way of “reading” a book is by audio book. As a busy lady it’s the best way for me to still get in my book time while being able to accomplish other tasks as well.
On my blog that I love, I want to share books that I love. My only problem with books is finding great ones to read. I hate getting three chapters into a story to realize that I just cannot go any further. I especially hate that feeling if I have just spent 30 minutes finding that book.
I am a big fan of recommendations!
So on to the recommendations.
Book of the Month:
Such a well told story. Very imaginative and really pulled me in. Just when I thought I might have some of the twists figured out, it pulled in a different direction. Great read!
“NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • In this thrilling new novel from the author of Water for Elephants, Sara Gruen again demonstrates her talent for creating spellbinding period pieces.At the Water’s Edge is a gripping and poignant love story about a privileged young woman’s awakening as she experiences the devastation of World War II in a tiny village in the Scottish Highlands.”
Other Great Recommendations:
A very patriotic read and an interesting peek into the personal lives of Americas early astronauts. I learned many things I didn’t know. The book reads very biographical and with listed facts, yet it still had a compelling personal attachment. I will say, at first, it was difficult to keep up with the bouncing around to each family, so I don’t advise reading/listening to this book if your mind is otherwise preoccupied.
“As America’s Mercury Seven astronauts were launched on death-defying missions, television cameras focused on the brave smiles of their young wives. Overnight, these women were transformed from military spouses into American royalty. They had tea with Jackie Kennedy, appeared on the cover of Life magazine, and quickly grew into fashion icons.”
