I start looking forward to this meme as soon as December begins. It is the time I add many books to my 2017 to be read list. Thank you bloggers.
I only had one 5 star read this year but all the others are 4 1/2 and memorable.
My Review 4 1/2 stars - Psychological Suspense
Wow, wow and wow. This is a book I wished I was able to read in 1 seating, staying up until almost 2am for two nights is not me but I couldn't get enough. The storytelling has you on the edge of your seat.
My Review 4 1/2 stars - Crime/Police Procedural
This crime thriller/police procedural will keep you fully engaged, the tension is constant and when it all comes together, BAM, I was pleased. I also really enjoyed all the characters, Robert Bryndza gave the characters a genuine place where you felt you understood decisions, good and bad which helped the dialogue to feel real also.
My Review 4 1/2 stars - Memoir
This is not my kind of book but I downloaded the sample and was laughing, became engaged and had to read it. I'm glad I did, very fun book. I was happy to see the inside of a celebrity from their point of view. I found it light, fun, badassary (Shonda added this to her Dictionary as a new word). I was a Grey's Anatomy fan but now I can say I'm a Shonda fan.
My Review 4 1/2 stars Suspense - My choice for Book Club and a video discussion with author
In February I said this would make my Top Ten List. I saw this book mentioned during a book meme, I was intrigued and downloaded it. Sometimes the best books are the one's you know nothing about outside of the summary. I want to just say read it, there is something for all, especially the thriller, mystery fans but I think this is perfect for the YA fans that want to get into thrillers. I was captivated and didn't want to go to sleep nights and even bought it to work, which I never do, I just couldn't get enough and had to know what was going to happen.
My Review 4 1/2 stars (Book 5) - My Favourite author and series
The Forensic Instinct team can do no wrong, absolutely love these characters. Andrea Kane makes me feel at home and her writing immediately grabs me and I'm in the comfort of my book journey with this team, I am one of them....
My Review 4 1/2 stars - Investigative Thriller
I think JT Ellison has officially became my favourite investigative thriller author and to think the first book I read by her I wasn't impressed, so glad I tried again. She gives me everything I want now. The feeling of being on the edge and can't read fast enough to know how it will end. Allowing the reader to be part of the investigation as clues are revealed. Really great characters who you begin to connect with and look forward to seeing more of. There are always connections which highlights how small our world really is, I find this so true and exciting.
