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 […]

Review | I Found You by Lisa Jewell

Review | I Found You by Lisa..

Why I Read It: I truly thought suspense/thriller books and I got off to a bad start – until I read this one. I read the one that everyone else was reading a few years ago and I think I just got caught up in the hype. Hype and I don’t mix well, and I didn’t love that book […]
