BookExpo 2017: Books, authors, crowds, and more books

It’s early June and I have bruises on my shoulders from carrying tote bags full of books–it must be BookExpo season! This year’s BookExpo was a bit different than it has been the last few years, and not just because they dropped the “America” from their name Continue reading “BookExpo 2017: Books, authors, crowds, and more books”

What would you do if your spouse cheated on you? Continue reading “Book Review: Devotion by Marianne Evans”

Book Review: Heartless by Marissa Meyer

This was the book that I started immediately upon returning from BEA back in May.

Book Review: Woman of God by James Patterson & Maxine Paetro

I’ve read several James Patterson novels and I know him for his mysteries. Woman of God is a departure from those books as Patterson dives into what I’ll call Christian Fiction. While the subject matter is completely different, Patterson fans might be pleased to know that this book follows the same writing style (short chapter and sentence format) of previous books. Continue reading “Book Review: Woman of God by James Patterson & Maxine Paetro”
