KatSings’ #CBR5 Review #39-43: See List Within

Another bulk post for you as I play catch up.  I’ve realized if I stop caring about reviewing in the order I’ve read them, it goes much better for me.  So hopefully in the next week or so I’ll actually finish reviewing everything, since I’m still almost 10 books behind.  I’ve almost finished the actual reading of the cannon, but reviewing is a mess still.

39-41: The Mistborn Trilogy by Brandon Sanderson

42: Fire Dance by Delle Jacobs

43: The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafron

KatSings’ #CBR5 Review #27-38: See List Within

Ok, so I am the worst and have fallen tremendously behind on my book reviews.  My professional life has altered greatly in the last few months, and it has changed my usual pattern of both reading and reviewing.  However – I’m happy to say I’m still well on track to make the cannon by year’s end.  I’m actually more than halfway through book 41 right now (books 39-41 are all from the same series, so I wanted to do them together).  The list of books included on my blog is below.  I’m numbering them for your ease, but only providing this one hyperlink: Kat’s Cannon

27 – 30: The MacKade Brothers series by Nora Roberts

31: Someday, Someday, Maybe by Lauren Graham

32: Just for Now by Rosalind James

33 – 34: Daughter of Smoke & Bone and Days of Blood & Starlight by Laini Taylor

35: The Engagements by J. Courtney Sullivan

36: Acting in Film: An Actor’s Take on Movie Making by Michael Caine

37: Just for Fun by Rosalind James

38: A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness

KatSings’ #CBR5 Review #25-26: Just This Once & Just Good Friends by Rosalind James

Just This Once & Just Good Friends by Rosalind James

I started reading the Escape to New Zealand series on a whim.  I finished my previous book and wanted something free from the Kindle lending library, something preferably silly and easy.  Romance novels set in New Zealand?  That was just what the doctor ordered!  I didn’t even realize this was a series when I started the first one, but I can promise you I’ll be reading the other two volumes before long.

KatSings’ #CBR5 Review #24: Drums of Autumn by Diana Gabaldon

Drums of Autumn by Diana Gabaldon

“You are my courage, as I am your conscience,” he whispered. “You are my heart—and I your compassion. We are neither of us whole, alone. Do ye not know that, Sassenach?” 
I continue to love this series, even if we’ve left the beauty of Scotland mostly behind.  This is the fourth book in the Outlander series, and if you’ve read the rest, you know what you are in for here.
If you loved the first three, you’ll continue your love with this one.

KatSings’ #CBR5 Review #19: Beautiful Ruins by Jess Walter

Beautiful Ruins by Jess Walter

“I think so, too. I know I felt that way. For years. It was as if I was a character in a movie and the real action was about to start at any minute. But I think some people wait forever, and only at the end of their lives do they realize that their life has happened while they were waiting for it to start.” 
This is a book I would definitely recommend.

KatSings’ #CBR5 Review #18: Sarah’s Key by Tatiana de Rosnay

Sarah’s Key by Tatiana de Rosnay

“You get attached to places, you know. Like people, I suppose.”  

Y’all…there is some profanity and spoilers in this review.  And I so don’t care, because please don’t read this book.  This is a very unorthodox review for me – I would have realtime reviewed it if such a thing made any sort of sense, because I spent so much time yelling at this book while driving.  It starts promising, but it ends a hot mess.
