Book Review: You Will Pay by Lisa Jackson

I’m getting older and my memory isn’t what it used to be. I’m finding it harder and harder to keep track of the characters in books. You Will Pay had so many characters that my head was often spinning with the effort to keep track of who was who and what their story was.

Book Review: The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli

To get on my auto-buy list usually an author has to have a back-list of at least a few books that I’ve loved. Has to be one that just never lets me down like Julie James. Nalini Singh. Sarina Bowen…obviously my chosen genre is romance lol. But Becky Albertalli got on that list for me with Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda which was funny, moving, and has stuck with me ever since. One book! That’s impressive! So I waited for my book friends to get their act together so we could have an epic group read of Upside…and it was fantastic, to say the least.

Book Review: The Reminders by Val Emmich

How does a book earn a 3-star rating? For me, it’s a book I enjoyed reading but one that doesn’t make me FEEL and is not one I rush to read again. Val Emmich’s The Reminders fits the criteria here for a 3-star read. Continue reading “Book Review: The Reminders by Val Emmich”

Book Review: When It’s Real by Erin Watt

Erin Watt is the pen name for the duo of two authors that I really love to fangirl over – Elle Kennedy and Jen Frederick. I love them writing individually, with other writing partners, and in a variety of genres so I was looking forward to a standalone NA from these two. Sometimes I feel like I don’t have enough standalones! I love trilogies and series but a good standalone can be worth its weight in gold. Continue reading “Book Review: When It’s Real by Erin Watt”

I laughed, I cried and I learned. Continue reading “Book Review: A Dog Called Hope by Jason Morgan and Damien Lewis”

Continue reading “Book Review: Just a Normal Tuesday by Kim Turrisi”

Book Review: The Perfect Stranger by Megan Miranda

I hate writing a bad review for a book because I don’t enjoy bashing an author’s baby. I enjoyed Miranda’s previous book and looked forward to reading The Perfect Stranger, but it just wasn’t for me. Continue reading “Book Review: The Perfect Stranger by Megan Miranda”
