May 2021 Book List (and TBR list)

Get the book HERE.

I listened to this book while on a road trip and couldn't have enjoyed it more. It was funny and touching and inspiring and 'over the top' all at the same time. The characters were likable and Margaret was always speaking her truth. I truly enjoyed this book!

I also listened to this book while driving and WOW. It was both endearing and surprising at the same time. I loved the character development and the way the each person's story unfolded. It was such a good book and if you like Australian accents (who doesn't?) I highly recommend listening to the audio version. I will definitely look for other books by this author now that I've read this one.

If you are looking for some summer reading you might want to take a peek at this list of books waiting to be read on my shelves...

I realize there are over 80 books waiting on my shelves and I can't tell you how happy that makes me! Reading a good book is the very best escape to another time or place. I will not read these in any particular order, I just pick the one that I'm in the mood for at the time. I like to skip around genres and authors to keep things interesting. While I clearly have some favorite authors, I'm always open to trying new authors and looking for books that are unlike anything I've read before. I hope you find something fun to read this summer!

Enjoy every story!
