June 2017 Reads

OK, 31 books this month. What a load. That's 8452 pages of full blown action, romance and mystery. My favorites this month were the Outlander series. I don' know why, but the romance was awesome. The fighting was epic and the history was spot on. Check out my June list of reads below.




















#BookReview | Outlander by Diana Gabaldon

Title: Outlander
By: Diana Gabaldon Genre: HistoricalFantasy Pages: 850 Release Date: July 26th, 2005 Publisher: Dell Publishing Company Audience: Adult
Summary from Goodreads: The year is 1945. Claire Randall, a former combat nurse, is just back from the war and reunited with her husband on a second honeymoon when she walks through a standing stone in one of the ancient circles that dot the British Isles. Suddenly she is a Sassenach—an “outlander”—in a Scotland torn by war and raiding border clans in the year of Our Lord...1743.
Hurled back in time by forces she cannot understand, Claire is catapulted into the intrigues of lairds and spies that may threaten her life, and shatter her heart. For here James Fraser, a gallant young Scots warrior, shows her a love so absolute that Claire becomes a woman torn between fidelity and desire—and between two vastly different men in two irreconcilable lives.

With the Defenders as her devoted soldiers, Sam must make some difficult decisions. Should she save the world… or save herself?
Blake won’t give up on Sam. He knows he can’t trust Tonbo anymore, or the web of lies he’s been thrown into. If he hopes to save Sam, he must find the real reason Kory created the bug army. Turns out there could be something far worse than bloodthirsty bugs buriedon the islands, and Blake will have to fight his own inner demons if he wants to save those he loves—including Sam.

#BookReview | The Woman in Cabin 10

Title: The Woman in Cabin 10 By: Ruth Ware Genre: Murder Mystery / Thriller Pages: 340 Release Date: July 19th, 2016 Publisher: Gallery/Scout Press Audience: adult
Summary from Goodreads: In this tightly wound story, Lo Blacklock, a journalist who writes for a travel magazine, has just been given the assignment of a lifetime: a week on a luxury cruise with only a handful of cabins. At first, Lo’s stay is nothing but pleasant: the cabins are plush, the dinner parties are sparkling, and the guests are elegant. But as the week wears on, frigid winds whip the deck, gray skies fall, and Lo witnesses what she can only describe as a nightmare: a woman being thrown overboard. The problem? All passengers remain accounted for—and so, the ship sails on as if nothing has happened, despite Lo’s desperate attempts to convey that something (or someone) has gone terribly, terribly wrong…
With surprising twists and a setting that proves as uncomfortably claustrophobic as it is eerily beautiful, Ruth Ware offe…
