Crossed (Matched) by Ally Condie

I really loved the first book in this series. My daughter and I read this book at the same time and talked about it after. We both agreed that, while it was okay, it definitely lacked some of the oomph from the first novel. It appeared to drag on at times and I just wanted […]

Special Offers (The Coursodon Dimension) by M.L. Ryan

Reading the description of this book, you can’t help but think, “Oh geez, really?” – I really did NOT want to like this book, but I couldn’t help but read it because it sounded so weird that I couldn’t resist. I was actually quite pleasantly surprised. It’s not highfaluting fiction, for sure, but an interesting […]

Wanderlust: Book Two of the Edgewood Series by Karen McQuestion

The author sent me this book and I immediately started reading it – and finished it in less than two days. Admittedly, I’m a big fan of hers, especially her young adult writing. She does such an amazing job of capturing the spirit of what YA is and should be. The problem I had before […]

No Such Thing by Judi Coltman

I recently received this book from the author for review and the description was so intriguing that I started it pretty quickly. But this was a harder book to read than I anticipated. The writing is very vivid and the content is hard to swallow. It’s not that it’s even graphically written, I think at […]

Edgewood (Edgewood Series) by Karen McQuestion

The author sent me a copy of this book with a request for a review. I’ve been a fan of her work for a while now, first reading some women’s fiction which was so amazingly well done that I still gush to folks about how good it was. Later on, she sent me a children’s […]

Death’s Hand (The Descent Series) by SM Reine

The author sent me this book about a year ago and while scrolling through trying to find something, the cover caught my eye. GREAT cover art, which in my opinion is half the battle. This was my first read by this author. ANYWAY… the storyline is actually very interesting. Enough so that I kind of […]

A Discovery of Witches: A Novel (All Souls Trilogy) by Deborah Harkness

I enjoyed this book, let me say that first. It was really good. Maybe I’m getting a little burned out on vampires and witches and paranormal, but I felt like I have read 20 books just like this in the past couple of years. Yes, there was some uniqueness going on with the cross species […]

Neverwhere: A Novel by Neil Gaiman

I have never really read anything by Gaiman, but my book club chose this book and a friend of mine is a HUGE fan. Like “go stand in line for 2 hours so I can have him sign my book and say hi for 10 seconds” fan. I was pretty excited to finally read something […]
