Book Review | Club Deception by Sarah Skilton

Book Review | Club Deception..

Review: I chose to read Club Deception by Sarah Skilton because I don’t often choose stories that have magicians in them and because I loved this cover. I’m glad to say that this one paid off. One of the best things about this book is that is was easy to read in small doses. Do y’all ever […]

Review | Everything We Left Behind by Kerry Lonsdale

Review | Everything We Left ..

Review: As soon as I finished Everything We Keep, I started reading this book. I loved the first one, but when I realized the second book would be featuring James/Carlos, I was all in. His story seemed so mysterious and after the first book had that crazy ending, I just had to know more about…what […]

Review | Everything We Keep by Kerry Lonsdale

Review | Everything We Keep ..

Review: I’ve been captivated by the cover of Everything We Keep by Kerry Lonsdale since I first saw it last year. There’s just something about looking at the back of a person staring off into the distance that intrigues me. I don’t know why. But since I first saw this cover, this book has been on […]

Review | The Lucky Ones by Mark Edwards

Review | The Lucky Ones by M..

Review: The Lucky Ones is my first book by Mark Edwards! I’ve noticed his books when browsing on Amazon, but I hadn’t read one until a few days ago. I was on the edge of my seat for the entire length of the book, especially during the second half. The prologue starts off with a meeting between […]

Review | The Roses of May by Dot Hutchison

Review | The Roses of May by..

Review: When I finished The Butterfly Garden, I wasn’t sure if I would continue with this series. I remember closing that book on my Kindle, sitting down, and pacing for a few minutes because I needed to process what I had just read. It’s dark and disturbing and just, wow. And I didn’t love the […]

Review | Monticello by Sally Cabot Gunning

Review | Monticello by Sally..

Review: I thought I would be able to breeze through Monticello by Sally Cabot Gunning since I know a little bit about this part of history and because I love historical fiction so much, but I really had to take my time with this one. It’s so layered and detailed. But I love books like this […]

Review | Deliver Her by Patricia Perry Donovan

Review | Deliver Her by Patr..

Review: I’m puzzled that I thought Deliver Her by Patricia Perry Donovan was a suspense/thriller. Now that I’ve finished it, it read more like a character-driven fiction story. I think it was the last part of the synopsis that made me think this would be suspenseful book but alas it just was not. Still, I loved […]

Review | The Butterfly Garden by Dot Hutchison

Review | The Butterfly Garde..

Review: I’m surprised that I made it through The Butterfly Garden by Dot Hutchison because this is one of the most disturbing things that I’ve ever read. Honestly, I’m unnerved at how captivated I was while I was reading and by how I just couldn’t stop clicking the pages on my Kindle. The way that the […]

Review | The Winter King by C.L. Wilson

Review | The Winter King by ..

Why I Read It: I hadn’t heard of the Weathermages of Mystral Series until my friend Lauren mentioned the upcoming second book to me. The series sounded so good that I grabbed The Winter King before our discussion was over. (Thank you for recommending this one to me, Lauren!) Now that I’ve finished, I’m dying for […]
