After moving to a much smaller apartment, I had to part with a good portion of my personal book collection. I just didn’t have room! Don’t worry, they all found new homes 🙂
That being said, I started to realize just how much I re-read books. With a much smaller selection to choose from, I unfortunately found myself struggling to find something new… I am such a die-hard lover of real books, but lately I have had to accept just how convenient it is to be able to download digital books. I had only previously used my tablet to download books when traveling. I managed to finish nearly 5 books in a week when I went to the Dominican Republic… a total of 8 hours of layover and 10 hours flight time one way made it pretty easy, but I digress.
Viva Las Vegas
Back in February, I headed off to Las Vegas for a work conference. It was my first time in Las Vegas, but with my energy struggles paired with it being a work trip, I didn’t go out too much. We did walk up and down the strip, manage to get lost at Caesars, and hit up an amazing bowling alley, but ultimately, I was glad when we were boarding our flight home. I was down to the last 10% of my current book, and on a whim I downloaded another 3 onto my tablet from Amazon from the $3 list and a book is an impulse buy you will almost never regret… as I soon discovered.
Ocean Themed Reading
While it wasn’t intentional, all three books were ocean themed, and I lucked out that all were pretty decent reads, as my 3 hour flight home to Sioux Falls, SD ended up taking nearly 18 hours longer than planned. A blizzard that we were supposed to beat hit before we landed, and after an about 45 minutes of circling, the pilot re-routed us to Des Moines, IA, where we ended up spending the night. Thankfully, I was able to entertain myself with these!

This was indeed a great thriller! While I thought that there was an undeveloped love in a secondary back story that the author did a great job of building and never followed through on, this book kept me guessing up to the end. Even when you think you know what is going on, she will throw a great twist into things. Definitely a good read.

This was a typical lost love story, but had some really beautiful twists in it. A bit of past romance, a bit of psychic powers, a mother’s love, and mermaid tears. Well written and a quick read, perfect for a weekend.

It was a coincidence that I happened to select two books from the same author, as I was quickly downloading them before I had to put my tablet in airplane mode. That said, this was a completely different read from the “All the Breaking Waves.” Dealing with psychology and the process of discovering yourself after loss, this book hits it hard from the first chapter to the very end. Totally different dynamic, and just as good. There is also a sequel coming out, so I read this one just in time!
