Book Review: Emily, Gone by Bette Lee Crosby

Does every mother hold a deep fear in her heart that one day her child could be kidnapped? I canโ€™t imagine the heartache that parents of missing children must endure. But this story paints just such a picture, in such vivid detail, that I could very easily put myself in their place. Continue reading “Book Review: Emily, Gone by Bette Lee Crosby”

Book Review: The Other Woman by Sandie Jones

The Other Woman was not at all what I thought, but in the best way!

Book Review: It Takes Two by Jenny Holiday

 

Okay, full disclosure I think I am officially a Jenny Holiday fangirl. It kind of snuck up on me and I didn’t see it coming but here it is. I read Famous and Infamous (and really enjoyed both!) and then bought her 49th Floor series when it was on sale because the stories were very inclusive. I was not disappointed and that sealed the deal but her Bridesmaids Behaving Badly series has delighted me to no end. Continue reading “Book Review: It Takes Two by Jenny Holiday”

Book Review: Damaged Goods by Talia Hibbert

Talia Hibbert is a new to me author this year that I had seen quite a few people talking about and they were not wrong. This is my 4th book of hers that I’ve devoured and she is quickly becoming an autobuy – I have 2 or 3 others of her books bought and ready to read because her writing is just that good. Her heroines are interesting and strong, vulnerable as well as able to stand on their own, while her heroes are both genuine are empathetic and not at all overbearing. But if they have a moment of that her heroines would not hesitate to put them in their place. YES, PLEASE! Continue reading “Book Review: Damaged Goods by Talia Hibbert”

Book Review: Your Heart Will Grow by Chace Verity

This author’s voice is so original and I can’t quite find the words to say what I love so much about it. Her books are both cute and touching but this book also dealt with some more heavy aspects in a very deft and even-handed manner that I truly loved. Continue reading “Book Review: Your Heart Will Grow by Chace Verity”

Book Review: My So-Called Bollywood Life by Nisha Sharma

I am in love with this cover! I completely read a book based on a cover and this one called to me so loudly. Those colors pop beautifully and I can imagine in a bookstore they would do so even more. I’m a huge Sonali Dev fan from her first book, which I’ve talked about a ton here, so I was excited to see a Bollywood YA book like this. I’m so happy to say this book completely lived up to what I wanted. Continue reading “Book Review: My So-Called Bollywood Life by Nisha Sharma”

Book Review: The Viking Queen’s Men by Holley Trent

Holley Trent is a USA Today Bestselling author but is one that is new to me. I was looking for recs for authors of color and this book in particular was taking over my twitter timeline. I heard menage and addictive and I my antennae basically went up so I dove right in! Continue reading “Book Review: The Viking Queen’s Men by Holley Trent”

Book Review: How to Walk Away by Katherine Center

As I begin this review I have no idea where it will go. At this moment I canโ€™t quite find the words to describe how this book drew me in. One word that does come to mind is magical. Continue reading “Book Review: How to Walk Away by Katherine Center”

Book Review: A Princess in Theory by Alyssa Cole

I love authors who do their own thing and just do it really, REALLY well. Alisha Rai, Courtney Milan, and Kit Rocha come to mind. This is admittedly probably because these authors are friends and I see them having intelligent discussions on Twitter, but also because in their respective books they are doing representation incredibly well and I am so *here* for it. I can definitely include Alyssa Cole in the group! Continue reading “Book Review: A Princess in Theory by Alyssa Cole”
