Book Review: Invitation to the Blues by Roan Parrish

Sometimes you’re looking for a light book, sometimes you’re looking for a more meaningful one, and sometimes you’re looking for something funny, you know?

Continue reading “Book Review: The Good Liar by Catherine McKenzie”

Book Review: Not That I Could Tell by Jessica Strawser

I really enjoyed Strawser’s first novel, but this one didn’t quite hit the mark. Continue reading “Book Review: Not That I Could Tell by Jessica Strawser”

The Smallest Part was exactly the book I needed to bring me through a book slump. Continue reading “Book Review: The Smallest Part by Amy Harmon”
