Audio Book Review: Norse Mythology

Neil Gaiman wrote a new book. That was pretty much all I need to know before making a buying decision but, even though it was an instabuy, I didn’t expect it to leave me wondering if this was the perfect audiobook. Continue reading “Audio Book Review: Norse Mythology”

Book Review: Hard Wired by Megtino

Hard Wired is book 3 in the Cyberlove series by one of my favorite writing pairs ever – Megan Erickson and Santino Hassell. The first two books were pretty great, with the second being really hard to top! I read everything these two authors write individually; and combined it’s almost like their powers are multiplied for the greater good.  Continue reading “Book Review: Hard Wired by Megtino”

Book Review: Always by Sarah Jio

Too often I’m enjoying a story when I begin to feel like I’m not getting the meat and potatoes … just the veggies 🙂 That was the case with Always. When I read the final word and closed the book I knew more details would have enhanced my reading experience.  Continue reading “Book Review: Always by Sarah Jio”

Book Review: American Psychosis by E. Torrey Fuller

Where do I start? If you’re like me and enjoy historical non-fiction, then this one you may want to pick up. Keep in mind it’s about mental health treatment in the United States starting in the mid-20th century.

Book Review: The Hundred Lies of Lizzie Lovett

I was looking forward to this YA book – it was supposed to have some teen angst, some mystery, some suspense. So a little bit of everything. I’m a fan of all of those things, so pretty much right up my alley, right? Wrong. So, wrong. To say I was disappointed in this book feels like a stretch. I was bored by it which is the worst thing I can say about a book. If I hate a book at least I can say it’s memorable. Not the case here.

Book & Movie Review + Giveaway: A Dog’s Purpose by W. Bruce Cameron

A Dog’s Purpose is the story of one dog’s search for his purpose over the course of several lives. It touches on the quest for an answer to life’s most basic question: Why are we here? Continue reading “Book & Movie Review + Giveaway: A Dog’s Purpose by W. Bruce Cameron”

Book Review: Echoes in Death by JD Robb

A few weeks ago I was having the crappiest day ever at work and just when I’d decided that pulling the fire alarm so that we could close early was a viable option, the UPS guy dropped off a promo box with an advanced copy of Echoes in Death.

Book Review: Good Boy (WAGs #1) by Sarina Bowen & Elle Kennedy

Good Boy is a spin-off from one of my favorite male/male books ever – Him and the follow up Us. If you’ve read those (and really, if you haven’t GO NOW) then you’re familiar with the wonderful Jamie and Wes. As well as my favorite Blake, their neighbor. Good Boy is the story of Blake and Jess, who happens to be Jamie’s sister. Continue reading “Book Review: Good Boy (WAGs #1) by Sarina Bowen & Elle Kennedy”

Book Review: Hit and Run by Jason Moore

I wanted to read this book for two reasons. The author is from the same small county in Virginia that I am and the summary of the book sounded like something I’d love to read. So here we are. Continue reading “Book Review: Hit and Run by Jason Moore”
