"Bethie's Place"

I love writing, reading, and everything books! Let's chat!

My Reading List of 2015 — January

Hello to all my readers! I have chosen four books to start the year. They are:

Shopaholic To The Stars — Sophie Kinsella

Orphan Train — Christina Baker Kline

The Lemon Orchard — Luanne Rice

The Girls of August — Anne Rivers Siddons

Of the four books I’ve chosen, the only author new to me is Christina Kline Baker, so I’m excited to give it a try. What drew me to the book was the title and the plot. The other three authors I’ve read for years and enjoyed their writing styles.

  1. Hello Bethie. A great idea to have a blog about books. I love reading too. We live on a boat and get through quite a lot of books. We save up the ones we have read and look for a book swap in a taverna.
    I don’t have one favourite author but I quite like Ken a Follett at the moment. Once I find an author I like, I tend to read all of their books one after the other.
    I like crime novels, forensics, medical novels a la Patricia Cornwell, Peter James. It’s interesting how important the cover art is, and the blurb on the back.
    I only read one book at a time, otherwise I tend not to finish either of them. I much prefer a physical book – I bought a Kindle when they first came out but didn’t like it. I like the smell of books, the feel, flicking through the pages etc.
    Tell me about your reading preferences?

  2. Hi Bethie
    From your list I have Shopaholic To The Stars — Sophie Kinsella in my library, it has been in there for a few months just never got round to reading it. My favorite fiction author is Liane Moriarty and so far I have read two of her books The Husband’s Secret and Big Little Lies, I loved both books so much. I don’t really have a favorite genre that I like, I choose a book by the cover art, author and reviews. I find myself reading multiple books at the same time usually a fiction and a nonfiction at the same time. I will always love physical books and I buy them for my collection however e-books are more convenient for me as I can carry one device that has more than 80 books.

    Love your blog 😉

  3. Hey Bethie, have you used Goodreads to keep track of the books you read? I use Goodreads to store and all reviews will transfer to byword press site. Using the Goodreads widget provides followers to view what you want to read, and currently reading.
