June’s Selection

Hi Everyone,

This month’s book for Read with Ariesgrl is… The Cuckoo’s Calling by Robert Galbraith. If you are in the mood of solving a crime, join me this month by reading 1.5 chapters a day and we will discuss it here, weekly.

Enjoy!

Hi Everyone,

Happy Memorial Day! Thank you to all those who lost their lives, defending our freedoms.

Last month’s Read with Ariesgrl was a bit of a disappointment, thanks to Barnes and Noble not sharing the final chapter in their serial read selection. For the month of June, I decided to dive into my never-ending wish list to find a good suspense/mystery read. I have narrowed it down to The Templar Legacy by Steve Berry and Cuckoo’s Calling by Robert Galbraith. Both titles are the first in a series and each have their own unique spin on suspense. We have a couple of days left before June 1st, to decide. So which one of these titles sounds like a fun June read to you?

Enjoy!

Hi Everyone,

It seems that this month’s serial read (available through the Barnes and Noble app) ended rather quickly. Normally readers get one (or more) chapters a day, with a couple of days at the end of the month, to catch up, but this month’s story ended on the twentieth. Despite the fact that the main characters wrapped up their stories, I was left hanging. I felt the ending to Redemption Bay by RaeAnne Thayne, was very rushed. Well, it turns out that Barnes and Noble failed to give us the Epilogue. WHAT?!?!?!

So I suggest to all of you, who are reading this book with me, to go to your nearest Used Bookstore and/or Library and pick up the book to read the final chapter. Yes, I still think the overall ending was rushed, but at least now I feel better knowing how the future will treat these characters that I have grown to like.

What are your thoughts on this book? Do you have any suggestions for next month’s selection?

 

Enjoy!

Hi Everyone,

How was your weekend? I spent mine relaxing, cuddling with my boys and reading. It was a very enjoyable weekend for me and I hope you all can say the same!

I found that after one, care-free day, my internal battery was recharged and I have been steadily catching up on things! YAY!

So what are you reading this week?

Enjoy!

Hi Everyone,

This month’s Read with Ariesgrl book will be the nook’s Serial Read selection for May. Each day, the nook app will provide one chapter from Redemption Bay by RaeAnne Thayne.

Throughout the month, I will start discussion threads for us to share our thoughts!

Enjoy!
