what I'm reading [MAY 2016]



Back in February I told you about a book series I've been really enjoying.  It's called Calendar Girl by Audrey Carlan and it's very much out of my normal genre preference.  However, I'm LOVING this series!  There's 12 books, one for each month of the year.  I'm currently on October.  These books are very short easy reads.  Perfect for summer!  My preferred way of reading is on my iPad with the free Kindle app.  Due to my POHS my eyes have a hard time reading on white backgrounds.  With POHS I have several blind spots in my vision from scarring, and they're distracting on white backgrounds.  I also need a larger font because of my vision impairment from the POHS.  I love reading on the Kindle app for iPad because I can adjust the font size along with making the book "pages" black with white text instead of white with black text.  This setup has allowed me to comfortably read with my vision issues. 
[If you are unfamiliar with POHS, click on the label in the sidebar titled "POHS" for posts I've written about it.]


I am very busy.  We're all very busy, right?  I don't get to read for pleasure as much as I'd like.  For 2016 I made it my goal to read at least 25 books.  This would put me around 2 books a month.  That may not seem like a lot to some of you, but for me that's a serious goal.  I'm so grateful I found this series because it's been so much fun to read and I'm currently ahead in my reading schedule!


||SERIES SUMMARY||
Mia Saunders needs money. A lot of money. She has one year to pay off the loan shark who has threatened her father’s life and is coming after his unpaid gambling debts. One million dollars to be exact. 
Her mission is simple―serve as a high-priced escort for her aunt’s Los Angeles-based company and pay monthly against the debt. Spend a month with a rich man whom she doesn’t have to sleep with if she doesn’t want to? Easy money. 
Unlucky in love with a spirit that never gives up, this curvy motorcycle-riding vixen plans to get in, make her money, and get out. Part of that goal is keeping her heart locked up tight and her eye on the prize. 
At least that’s the way it’s supposed to go…

Like I said before, this isn't the type of book I usually go for.  I'm not really into romance novels.  This series has been funny, suspenseful, charming, heartwarming, and incredibly entertaining.  I highly recommend it!

  1. My goal is 25 books too. I think it's cool how there's a book for each month!
