February Books Read

WooHoo!!! I read a total of 3 books this month. I know that doesn’t sound like a lot, but for the past year, I have not even come close as to how many books I used to read in a month. So this is a great accomplishment for me. I just hope that this continues and that maybe soon, I will get back to my old reading habits! Wish me luck!!!!

Sorry….I just had to join in with the Bernie meme!!!!

As for my reading, not good, AGAIN!!! I don’t know if I’m in a minor slump or it’s just that we are super busy with tours for Partners In Crime Tours. Just 2 books this month, both good, but only 2!

Also, if anyone is interested in the Bookly app that I have been using to track my reading and the graphics, let me know because I have a 30% discount for the Bookly Pro.

And a shout out to Gina @ Hott Books for giving my blog a facelift!!!!

October Books Read

I don’t want to jinx myself but I’m finding that I want to read more. Now if only I can get back to where I was before the pandemic. But I’m afraid, listening to the scientists, that we are in this for a very long time if people would listen and not be complacent.

September Monthly Wrap Up

September Books Read

Another bad month for reading!!!! At this rate, I will never meet my GR Challenge. Maybe next year! However, I know why. I definitely am enjoying reading again, unlike in March, April, May when my focus was nil due to virus. But the past couple of months we have been super busy at Partners In Crime Tours organizing a lot of tours for authors because they are unable to do in-person marketing. Stop by and see our current and upcoming tours. If a title looks like one you think you would like to review, complete the form or email me.

I purchased a Bookly subscription thinking that it would help me put in more reading time, or should I say guilt me into reading since I bought the app!? It helps a little but I just can’t seem to find extra hours in a day to sit down and read plus complete my PICT tasks and household chores. And I am also realizing that age is creeping up on me because if I do sit down to read at the end of the day, I fall asleep, which never happened to me before. I just wish Amazon sold those extra hours ūüôā

August Monthly Wrap Up

August Books Read

I still haven’t gotten my reading mojo back and I’m getting very frustrated about it. It seems I just can’t get past reading just 4 books each month.

I know part of the reason is that Gina, Wendy, and I are super busy with Partners In Crime Tours. Since authors are unable to do in-person marketing, they are choosing to go the route of VBTs. We have had many great titles, past, current, and upcoming. Many are still in our queue and haven’t been announced yet. If you are interested in joining us, please stop by and check things out!! We are always looking for tour hosts that post either on a blog, Facebook, and/or Instagram.

July Monthly Wrap Up

July Books Read


I had a better month than I have had since March. Even though I read 4 books, I’m still not happy that I am not reading as much as I used to before COVID-19 changed our lives. And according to GR, I am behind by 5 books to make my 2020 goal. I’m thinking that the reason I did better is due to the summer heat. I’m a summer person and there is nothing that I enjoy more than sitting on my float in the pool and read. No distractions like my phone and/or the television. I’m hoping that we will have pool weather every day in August so maybe I will have a few hours of interrupted reading time.

June Books Read

Another bad month for reading. I’m so frustrated because I don’t know if I’m in a slump or still unable to focus. I know part of the problem is that we are so busy with tours due to the virus. Authors are unable to do in-person signings so they are booking virtual tours. If interested to see the titles we are touring at Partners In Crime, check out the titles HERE.
