2020 – My favourite books of the year

I often have trouble making decisions but this year, it seems borderline impossible. It doesn’t help - in regards to making lists - that it was a particularly good year in terms of books. I started this list of my favourite books of the year with twenty-six titles. When I tried to lower that number, … Continue reading 2020 – My favourite books of the year

Face the Wind (Little Sister Island #2) – Caren J. Werlinger

After years of underestimating Caren J. Werlinger’s books, I now know when I open one that it’s going to be wonderful. There will be romantic aspects but it won’t be a romance novel. It’s going to be beautifully written, probably bittersweet, full of love and the need to belong. Because that’s what life is about. … Continue reading Face the Wind (Little Sister Island #2) – Caren J. Werlinger

Turning for Home – Caren J. Werlinger

A book by Caren J. Werlinger is never just a book. You know, going in, that it will get into you, move you, change you. I wasn't in the right headspace to tackle it when this second edition was released in April, complete with a short story, Just a Normal Christmas, that was initially published … Continue reading Turning for Home – Caren J. Werlinger

2019 – My favourite audiobooks of the year

So, after I listed my favourite books of 2019, I decided to do the same with audiobooks. It was actually my first full year of listening, and I'm definitely a fan. And I thought choosing would be easier, as I haven't listened to as many books as I've read. I was so wrong. So I … Continue reading 2019 – My favourite audiobooks of the year

My favourite 2019 books so far

There are quite a few books on this list that I've wanted to read (I even own a couple) but haven't yet. So here's my very biased 2019 top 10 so far, in no particular order except for #1. https://twitter.com/mhmhart42/status/1194388489808359425 #1 Living by Lise Gold #2 Breathe by Cari Hunter #3 Back to September by … Continue reading My favourite 2019 books so far

Invisible, as Music – Caren J. Werlinger

I’ll start with a confession (these reviews are getting more and more personal, aren’t they?): age gap romances make me uncomfortable. I’m not judging, or, rather, if I’m judging anyone, it’s myself. I have trouble understanding them. It’s all in my head, I know. For the physical part, I can see loving an older or … Continue reading Invisible, as Music – Caren J. Werlinger

Miserere – Caren J. Werlinger

Miserere

Why do I keep forgetting how much I love Caren J. Werlinger’s books? They have this subtle beauty, you start reading and after a while, without realizing it, you’re not reading anymore, you’re in there, in the story. This is the third or fourth book I read by Werlinger, and it’s just as beautifully written, … Continue reading Miserere – Caren J. Werlinger

When the Stars Sang – Caren J. Werlinger & Ann Etter (narrator)

When the Stars Sang

[Edit: September 20th 2019] I’ve always believed (and still believe) that Paris is the most beautiful city in the world. However, as time goes by, I find myself more and more drawn to quieter, less populated places. It’s no surprise, then, that I am a little envious of what Kathleen found on Little Sister. Not … Continue reading When the Stars Sang – Caren J. Werlinger & Ann Etter (narrator)
