You’re reading along, on the virtual edge of your seat. You’re at the so-called “resolution” of the book and BAM! You hit the “ABOUT THE AUTHOR” page… *sad trombone* […]

Don’t shoot me but I haven’t read the final book in The Hollows series. I blame it on two things. The first is I have an irrational fear of reading […]
I just read a super hyped-up book and it lived up to all the hype!! Who would have guessed?!?!
A middle grade book? Really, Kristin? YES!!! Why? Do you NOT see that awesome cover? It’s got Merlin and his adorable dog on it!
Honestly, I think this series is amazing. I never know if the story is going turn a corner and tug on my heart strings or if we’re going to run full tilt into a near death battle.
By now you’ve most likely heard about the book Illuminae. It’s innovative, fast-paced, and extremely mind-numbingly contemplative. I’m sure many of my brain cells suffered in the reading of this book. […]
This is one of my favorite lines from Monty Python and it fits so many things in life. It just sings in my head whenever I come across […]
Realistic and an impossibly horrible situation – that’s what drew me to this young adult contemporary story of hope and a bit of romance.
I don’t think I’ve read a story plot this deep or thought provoking as this one in a long, long time. My brain muscles are still un-cramping from all the thinking and flat out speed reading I’ve done in the last two days. This is just one of those stories that doesn’t have a good place to stop, regroup, and circle your thoughts back around.
Kristen Proby is back with a new series surrounding five best friends who open a trendy restaurant in Portland, Oregon. It’s actually a brilliant idea, especially if you love “girlfriend” stories. Enter at your own “grammar” risk…
I’m a newbie to suspense and mysteries. I’m just not drawn to them like romance and fantasy. I read to relax, not get tied up in knots. But I […]
Mechanical horses… with feelings?? You betcha! Best friends together forever? Yup. Detroit front and center? So awesome… Do I really need to write a review? Oh, alright…
I wouldn’t normally have noticed this book except that a publisher introduced it in an email. I read the synopsis and thought, “This sounds so adorable and perfect for a […]
I am officially addicted to Elle Kennedy’s writing. She writes good 😉 Seriously, though, I had her Off-Campus series in my Top Ten books of 2015. Each book has been worth every cent I paid for it, probably more.
Armie, Armie, Armie… what are we going to do with your sex-lovin’, raunchy t-shirt wearin’ sweet ass? I have some ideas. Merissa Colter has had ideas for years…
According to Ms. Lemmon’s “Acknowledgements” page at the end of Forgotten Promises, she was asked for a story with an “anti-hero”. I have to say she nailed the anti-hero perfectly when she created the character of Tucker Noscalo. His story and how he changed Morgan Young was not at all what I expected and by the end, it was so much more.
I think it’s pretty well known that I don’t normally read contemporary fiction that deals with serious issues. I completely shun anything by Jodi Piccoult for fear my meds couldn’t handle the deep depression I might find myself in. But for some odd reason, the situation in this story had me completely intrigued.
Completely different than any romance I’ve ever read before… How many times have you read those words in a book review? Probably quite a bit. But I have no other way to say it – Crave had an intense, emotional story I wasn’t expecting.
Well, this is a new one for me! A NICE slow romance built around a strong central protagonist – and it ain’t the girl in the relationship! I so enjoyed […]
That was kind of awesome… I just kind of fell in love with reading this story. It’s been a while since I’ve read a book that I wanted to keep running back to pick up and get lost in. Yep, I kind of forgot I had a family for a bit there.
Jessica Lemmon is an author I have been trying to make time to read ever since I saw all the great reviews for her Second Chance series. She lives in Ohio so of course she’s awesome… and probably an awesome writer, too 😉 So when I saw my two favorite bloggers grab the first book in her new Lost Boys series, Fighting for Devlin, I knew what my next step was… copy what they did and request the book.
I sort of feel guilty that I’m putting both of these book reviews in a single post. For one, each book will be on my favorites list of 2015 this year. They are both that good. And second, each book needs their own limelight, their own little space under the spotlight so everyone notices this series.
I picked up True Divide by Liora Blake completely on a whim. I hadn’t heard of Ms. Blake’s writing yet. But I was intrigued by the dichotomy between the title of the book and the cover. The cover screams HOT romance but the title tells me that these two are worlds apart on something. Do I have you wondering? I was and if you know anything about me, you know I need closure in ALL things. So IN I dove!
I have no clue how I stumbled onto this book. Somewhere, somehow, I saw this cover and HELLO! Amazing cover art. Simple and eye catching, it speaks volumes. So I looked at the reviews on Goodreads and my romance reading friends all really liked this book. We’re talking an average 4.06 rating out of 3,650 ratings. Not bad…
