29 Gifts is a book I re-read every few years, and with everything going on right now, it’s exactly what I needed. Every time I read this book I feel more satisfied with my life, happier and inspired. Cami Walker has been struggling with a horrible MS flare-up when a good friend gives her a “prescription” to give a gift every day for 29 days. This book shares how she fulfills this challenge and how it changes her life. My rating 5 out of 5.

Bread and Wine is another book I LOVE. I keep it in my kitchen and if I just need a little pick-me-up I’ll read one of the essays. The recipes are also delicious! In fact, the breakfast cookies are a family favorite – they are perfect with a cup of coffee in the morning. Yum! My rating 5 out of 5.
Note: I received an advanced soft copy of this book to review, however, all opinions are 100% my own.
Whatever you do, Be Happy is a darling book full of suggestions and inspiration to live a happier life. As that is one of my life goals, I am all about it! I think the best use for this book would be to have a hard copy and just randomly flip to a page each morning to set a positive tone or give yourself an idea for the day. This would be a great addition to your morning routine. My rating 4 out of 5.

Wall of Silence was the perfect mystery to read on my Kindle. I couldn’t easily skip ahead so I had no idea how it was going to end (although I had my theories). When Melissa comes home to find her husband dead on the kitchen floor, she knows her kids aren’t telling the whole truth, but she isn’t sure why. As she attempts to protect her family and discover what really happened, all kinds of secrets come out. My rating 4.5 out of 5.
As our library has been closed, I’ve been going through all my Amazon Prime free monthly books on my Kindle (which is an EXCELLENT side benefit of Amazon Prime). A Beginner’s Guide to Free Fall was one of them.
This story is full of quirky characters, some of which I liked and others not so much. The main characters of the story are Davis and his sister Molly. Both of their lives are being turned upside down due to a crazy series of events. How they handle it together and separately is what makes the book. My rating 4 out of 5.
With all this new free time, in addition to my free Kindle books, I’ve also been re-reading some older books. Trust No One was one of those. I’ve always enjoyed Jayne Ann Krentz’s books (she also writes under Amanda Quick) as they are entertaining easy reads. Perfect for the upcoming summer evenings on the back porch! I suspect I’ll be pulling a few others out during the next few months.
In this book, Grace finds her boss murdered and the killer left a bottle of vodka next to him that would only be meaningful to her. She enlists the assistance of a new neighbor to help her figure out what’s going on now and how it relates to her past. My rating 4 out of 5.
Without my local library, I’ve been relying heavily on my kindle. In fact, I’ve decided to go ahead and give Kindle Unlimited a try. Click on this link, and you can get your first two months free. It sounds like a perfect way to kick off my summer reading!
