Week in Review (1)

In 2014 I thought it might be fun to start doing a wrap-up post each week to talk about what I read and share some quick thoughts about the books that I'm not writing a full review for. This will give me the chance to highlight some of the older titles I read that came from my bookshelf or the library, too. 

Here we go! So far this year I've only worked 1 day out of 6 (due to closing on New Year's plus ALL THE SNOW). I've watched quite a bit of Netflix but still managed to finish 3 books.

This Lullaby by Sarah Dessen 
I am slowly working my way through all the Sarah Dessen novels. Last year I spent most of my Audible credits on Dessen's books since I seem to enjoy them more in audiobook format. This one wasn't my favorite, but I still enjoyed it. I didn't like Dexter very much at the begining, but he grew on me. The narrator, Ali Ahn, does a great job portraying Remy.

The Hero by Robyn Carr
This is #3 in the Thunder Point series, which I've been enjoying. I'll be reviewing #4 for the Book Soulmates blog, so I borrowed #3 from the library to make sure I was caught up. This one had a little different feel to it. It was more suspenseful and had a sense of danger sense the main character, Devon, was escaping from a dangerous situation. But I was glad to revisit the familiar setting and see characters from previous books living out their happy endings while the main character was learning to trust and love again. 

Inside Scientology by Janet Reitman
I saw this one on the Oyster app and decided to give it a try. For some reason I'm fascinated by anything about Scientology and have been wanting to read a book about it for a while. This one didn't disappoint. It was well-researched and interesting. At times it seemed a little too detailed for my taste, so I would take a break and come back to it when I was in the mood to read. But it did make me want to seek out similar books, so I might try Going Clear in the future. 

What did you read this week?
