When a Book Chokes at the End // With Malice by Eileen Cook

My Thoughts: I’ve seen a lot of love around the community for With Malice, which added to my excitement to read it. I’m a mystery girl, so I had high hopes for it as a whole. Sadly, the ending had me throwing ALL THE THINGS. From the first page, I was sucked into the book. Eileen’s writing is engaging, smooth and hooks you from the start. I love how the […]

The Woman in the Photo by Mary Hogan

My Thoughts: Woman’s Fiction isn’t a genre I pick up often – for no obvious reason at all. But the ones that I have picked up lately are wonderful, and that includes this book, The Woman in the Photo. Told in dual perspectives, we get two correlating stories. The story of Elizabeth in 1889. And the story of Lee, or Elizabeth, in the present day. Both women are trying to find […]

Do You Love Wit, Snark, and Drama? // Love Me Never by Sara Wolf

My Thoughts: I hear often that there are books readers consider “guilty pleasure” or “book crack.” It’s those books that just pull you in, are addicting and leave you with the epic of book hangovers. If I could label one book in that category, Love Me Never would be one of them. Not having heard much about before going in, I started the book on a Monday morning on my […]

Everywhere and Every Way by Jennifer Probst

My Thoughts: It’s been awhile since I have read one of Jennifer’s books, and when I saw this one available to read and review, I knew it was something I would like. Not knowing anything about construction or building a house, I was slightly hesitant, yet curious, to see just how much that would play in the story. (I mean, who are the Property Brothers?) >.< While my knowledge of house building […]

A Romance Set in Prehistoric Times? Sign Me Up! // Ivory and Bone by Julie Eshbaugh

My Thoughts: I feel like this is a book I have been waiting for, and didn’t even know. I mean, prehistoric setting? Saber-tooths! Mammoths!  WHAT WHAT. That being said, I have mixed thoughts on Ivory and Bone. Most of which, contradict each other and don’t make sense. But this is usually the way of things.  I want to talk about the writing style. It’s in the second person, with Kol […]

T’was Brilliant I Say! // Blog Tour: Never Missing, Never Found by Amanda Panitch

My Thoughts: Having not read Amanda’s debut novel, Damage Done – which by the way, I will be remedying soon! I wasn’t sure what to expect. I love YA thrillers, but there’s this lack of oomph that really gets me going lately when it comes to the genre, so needless to say I was nervous. Fear not, my friends! This book was brilliant. No, if’s and’s or buts, just brilliant. The writing […]
