Book Review: February 2021

This past month I have gotten in quite a bit of good reading.  I have really enjoyed everything I've read.  After being in a rut for so long, I am hoping this continues!



This Tender Land by William Kent Krueger.  This was a GOOD book.  I don't even know how to explain it because I feel like everything gives it away.  It all starts at a school, and then is a journey from there.  It was one of those books I enjoyed reading all the way throughout.  I enjoyed the pace, the characters, the stories - the location was neat because it was in the Midwest, which is where I am from.  While years ago, it was still neat to imagine those places as the story goes.  I highly, highly recommend.


Rainshadow Road & Dream Lake by Lisa Kleypas.  These books are part of the Friday Harbor series.  I started this series during the holiday season, because the first book is called Christmas Eve at Friday Harbor, and enjoyed the characters and wanted to see what happened with the other brothers.  And these books share just that.  Each book is focused on a brother, and his love interest.  There is a bit of magick in them, and while I didn't care for that part of the story too much, it didn't bother me, or deter me from reading them either.  A good series to pass the time if you enjoy reading about family and love.


Strangers in Death, Salvation in Death, Promises in Death by J.D. Robb.  I am making my way as quick as I can through the in Death books - I am hopeful to get current this year!  With each book I read, the more I enjoy them!  I like all the characters, and while the focus is always on Eve, the main character, the way she winds the friends into the stories, I enjoy.  If you are looking for a series for the long haul, this is one I would recommend!


The Awakening by Nora Roberts.  Nora Roberts has a new series, and The Awakening is the first book.  I honestly wasn't sure where this all was going at first, but it ends up in Ireland, which is where some of my favorite series of hers take place.  It just sounds so magical, and this book has plenty of that magic.  I like where the book ended, too.  It wasn't a huge cliff hanger (which I liked that it wasn't), but plenty to leave you wanting more.


Linking up with Steph.

    1. That would not be surprising, haha, it would definitely make a good Hallmark movie! I think those are good books to pick up whenever - sure they build off each other but I think they can be stand alone, too! Yessss, I swear the books get better and better!
