bookish devices

from one book nerd to another



Book Review: The Mother-in-Law by Sally Hepworth

This book isn’t non-stop action, but it’s definitely another read that pulled at me from beginning to end. I used similar words to describe a book in a review last week. It fit this book as well, so I decided to use them again 🙂 Continue reading “Book Review: The Mother-in-Law by Sally Hepworth”

Book Review: Keeping Lucy by T. Greenwood

Keeping Lucy is not non-stop action and excitement. What it is, is gripping. Continue reading “Book Review: Keeping Lucy by T. Greenwood”

Book Review: Saving Meghan by D.J. Palmer

This one kept me guessing all the way through! Now THAT is the sign of an excellent mystery! Continue reading “Book Review: Saving Meghan by D.J. Palmer”

Book Review: Two Weeks by Karen Kingsbury

Don’t let the Baxter name keep you from reading the latest from Karen Kingsbury. Two Weeks is Elise Walker’s story.

Book Review: Daisy Jones & The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid

Taylor Jenkins Reid has chosen an interesting way to tell a story. But does it work? Continue reading “Book Review: Daisy Jones & The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid”

Book Review: The Perfect Alibi by Phillip Margolin

Man! Oh man! It feels as if I’ve done nothing but read, review and have lackluster feelings about books in the mystery/thriller/suspense genre lately. Unfortunately, that’s not changing as I bring you a review of another lackluster book. Continue reading “Book Review: The Perfect Alibi by Phillip Margolin”

Book Review: Things You Save in a Fire by Katherine Center

Things You Save in a Fire is the second book I’ve read by Katherine Center. The books have filled me with such joy, adding Center to my must-read author list. Continue reading “Book Review: Things You Save in a Fire by Katherine Center”
