Eve Dallas and Harry Potter: Why I Love Them

I’m assuming I’m one of the few people out there who hasn’t read every book of the In Death series by J.D. Robb or the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling.

Book Review: Good Me Bad Me by Ali Land

Ali Land’s Good Me Bad Me seemed to pop up everywhere I turned, so I was excited to win a copy from the publisher. I couldn’t wait to see if it was going to be as good as everyone said, but it didn’t live up to the hype, in my opinion. Continue reading “Book Review: Good Me Bad Me by Ali Land”

Book Review: The Other Girl by Erica Spindler

The title of the latest from Erica Spindler is perfect! Read The Other Girl so you too can understand its meaning as the story brings it all together. Continue reading “Book Review: The Other Girl by Erica Spindler”

Book Review: Seeing Red by Sandra Brown

It’s very rare that a book keeps me up late reading and if it does then it’s definitely a good one. That was the case with Seeing Red by Sandra Brown. As the clock ticked closer to 12AM, I couldn’t stop until I knew everything. Continue reading “Book Review: Seeing Red by Sandra Brown”
