End of Year Book Tag

It’s two (2) days until the new year, I’m two months into this blogging journey and I’m enjoying it thus far. While I didn’t get to share as many book reviews here are a few things I’ve enjoyed this year.

Are there any books you started this year that you need to finish?

Yes, sadly I didn’t get a chance to finish these books and I’m giving my self until the first quarter of 2021 to finish them:

Anxious People-Fedrik BackMan

Home Before Dark -Riley Sager

Memorial -Bryan Washington

The Wife Upstairs – Rachel Hawkins

This Time Next Year – Sophie Cousens

For Better and Worse -Margot Hunt

Have you already started making reading plans for 2021?

I kind of shocked myself with the number of books I read in 2020. According to my tracker, I’ve read 12 books when the plan was to cover at least 5. That’s pretty awesome for someone who is just starting out. I plan to read at least 20 Books in 2021. Wish me luck🙂.

What’s your favorite genre?

I love Self Help Books, A good Thriller, Detective Mystery are books I’ve found myself gravitated towards.

What were your favorite books if any?

I love everything Melinda Leigh- Those Morgan Dane Books were addictive. I also enjoyed reading Rose Carlyle The Girl in The Mirror and lastly Lisa Jewel -The Family Upstairs.

Do you have any books that you didn’t enjoy?

Yes, Wild Game – Andriene Brodeur was oddly disturbing.

If you could recommend any two book what would they be and why?

The Miracle Morning– Hal Elrod

30 Days Change Your Habit Change Your Life -Marc Reklau

I’d recommend these two books because they changed my life. They allowed me to look past what was blocking me in seeing my fullest potential. These books challenged my thoughts and ideals gave me a different and broader perspective on life. I was able to broaden my horizon gain a better understanding of who I truly am and what I can do. If you’re feeling stuck and want that added push I would recommend the two especially going into the new year. You can get both on your Kindle or purchase on Amazon.

Save your Breath- Melinda Leigh(Morgan Dane Series Book 6) #Book-Review

Synopsis:

When true-crime writer Olivia Cruz disappears with no signs of foul play, her new boyfriend, Lincoln Sharp, suspects the worst. He knows she didn’t leave willingly and turns to attorney Morgan Dane and PI Lance Kruger to find her before it’s too late.

As they dig through Olivia’s life, they are shocked to discover a connection between her current book research on two cold murder cases and the suicide of one of Morgan’s prospective clients.

As Morgan and Lance investigate, the number of suspects grows, but time is running out to find Olivia alive. When danger comes knocking at their door, Morgan and Lance realize that they may be the killer’s next targets.

My Thoughts:

Bittersweet moment as I write my final thoughts on this novel as well as the series. So much emotions going on right now. Excellent writing by Melinda Leigh. She had me staying up late at night. I’m not mad at all.

Book 6 was centered around the kidnapping of Olivia Cruz, Sharps’s girlfriend. The kidnapping was all kind of weird that left Sharp desperate to find her. He of course got help from Morgan, Lance, Lance mom, and Stella (Morgans sister) to solve this one. Every clue they’d got turned up to be a dead end. Sharp was miserable he and Olivia hadn’t really established anything between them but he knew he was miserable without her and he just had to find her. I was sad for him.

So many leads, something had to give them a clue. Lance and Morgan saved the day they did not only solve the kidnapping but also other mysteries.

The ending was very touching Sharp did something that made Morgan tear up and to tell you the truth I was moved. He did something that would make your heart melt. I’m also happy that Lance and Morgan will be together forever.

Overall well written series, I thoroughly enjoyed the novels. Melinda Leigh has a new fan. I will be looking out for her books. If you see them please tag me.

What’s next? I’m going to finish reading my book of the month mail haul….

Until Next Post…

Binge worthy Spanish films (#Netflix and Chill) 🍿

I got a notification 🔔 prompt today indicating that one of my Spanish series; Season 2 is airing tomorrow. I’ve already shared how hectic things are, I’m not sure how I’ll juggle that along with reading 2 books at once. I figured I’d share my unhealthy obsession with foreign language related movies. At first I was turned off my subtitles but baby listen overtime you’ll swear you’re a Spanish expert and you’ll follow the movies to the T. I also love that the movies have more episodes other than regular movies you’d watch….

I love my Columbian 🇨🇴 or Spanish focus films 🎬. They’re mostly centered around the cocaine industry. I think I have seen a thousand ways of how the drug business is run. No this is not the time and or the place and I’m not considering entering into it. Focus, I’m sharing my all-time favorite movies on Netflix and I hope you’ll check them out:

These are in no particular order,

1. La Reina del Sur

After years of blood, sweat and tears, a woman from humble beginnings finds herself in the perilous position of being a legend in drug trafficking. FYI anything that Kate Castillo is in is top notch.

2.Enemigo Intimo

A brother and sister were tragically separated at a young age and cross paths as strangers several years later on opposite sides of the law.

3.Sin Senos Si Hay Paraiso

A poor girl seeks revenge on the Mafia who tries to separate her family… Who has the wits and guys to stand up to the Drug Lord- she does.

4.Ingobernable

First Lady of Mexico who, of course, ends up embroiled in plenty of political scandals. And if del Castillo looks familiar, that’s because you might recall she made headlines over the past few years for publicly supporting the Mexican druglord Joaquín Guzmán Loera, better known as El Chapo

5.Elite

Spoiled rich kids, love triangle, death….

6. Grand Hotel

This movie is based in the 1900’s Servant goes to Aristocatic hotel to find about the murder of his sister. He not only gets the help of the daughter of the owner but also falls in love. This is unheard of no servant is good enough for their daughter or so they think….

These are just my top 6️⃣. Do you watch Spanish films on Netflix? Let’s talk…

Until next post
