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 […]

This is going to be one of the easiest reviews I’ve ever written.
I’m just going to get this out of the way first: This story has a love triangle that isn’t a love triangle. There is an obvious couple who […]
Ms. Carlino has done it to me again. I don’t even know where to start.
I’m going to start off this review by sharing my “Colleen Hoover” resume. So I’ve read about five of her books and I’ve enjoyed every one of them. I […]
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 […]
I’m not one to read girly, friendship-type books. I actually run away in the opposite direction from them. But when I picked up the review copy of The Unexpected Everything, I had no clue that ‘friendship’ was a pretty big part of the story’s plot. Turned out, it wasn’t that painful for me to endure.
The Last Boy and Girl in the World turned out to be different than what I expected from the synopsis. From the cute cover to the fun-loving teens having parties in the water-logged streets in the synopsis, this story sounded like it would be a light look at a serious time in a town’s transformation.
I was super excited to get a recipe book full of Pinterest worthy recipes – all printed out and ready to be made! Yummmmm!
Normally, I wouldn’t pick up a book that looks anything like this. The cover reminds of a woman’s contemporary novel and I’m just not drawn to that kind of drama. I need happy ever afters and I want them sweet and perfect.
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 […]
Are you looking for a well written “classic” small town romance? In the mood for classic romance tropes like opposites attract, secrets from the past coming to light, or just plain ‘ole starting over? Well, this story has them all and believe it or not, Ms. Bross made them all work together wonderfully.
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 […]
Unhooked feels like the little story that could.
Come Back to Me is a new adult romance that called to me. It said over and over, “You’ll want to read a sweet, young romance for a mental […]
Intriguing… that about sums it up for me.
There are so many reasons for my severe case of “the book smiles”* while I was reading this book. I ate up every single page of Jo and Rune’s story.
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.
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!
A story is similar to a recipe. You take characters, throw them in a world you’ve built, stir in some plot, and if you’ve done it all correctly, you come out with a tasty book. Some books taste better to other readers than they do to you, and that’s okay.
Well, my vocabulary has been expanded. Of course I knew the “boot” was the trunk of the car. “Petrol” is gasoline. I’m still not sure what the “forecourt” is though. Oh, how I love reading books written by British authors!
I want to take this moment to thank two people. I thank Grace at Rebel Mommy Book Blog for “making” me hunt this book down. And I thank Renee […]
Escaping Reality, book one in the Secret Life of Amy Bensen series, was originally written back in 2013. I actually remember it coming out and a bunch of my friends liking it. I noticed that it was being re-released this past summer to coincide with Ms. Jones adding to the series in the fall. So the greedy little reader that I am, I snapped it up for review so I can see for myself what all the hype is about Ms. Jones’ writing.
What is up with me and realistic fiction these days?!? Am I an “emotions” magnet or something because these books keep finding me! This time, I was pulled under by Abbi Glines’ new series The Field Party. The first book, Until Friday Night, is a lesson in dealing and healing for both West Ashby and Maggie Carleton.
