Girl in Pieces by Kathleen Glasgow

My Thoughts: There are some books that leave you breathless. Their words leave their mark on you and you are left with no adequate words to describe it, and how it made you feel. Girl in Pieces, is one of those books… it’s just so honest, raw and emotionally draining but beautiful, too. If I could reach in this story and hug all the characters, I would. But I would hold onto Charlie […]

The Lost and the Found by Cat Clarke

My Thoughts: When you love a particular genre, you tend to read more of it, yes? And the more you read of said genre, the most subtle clues you pick up on, and just see coming. I think many readers can attest to that. So, when you see the outcome of a situation so clearly so early in the book, it can leave you either disappointed, or it won’t bother you […]

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 […]

The Fall of Butterflies by Andrea Portes

My Thoughts: The Fall of Butterflies was a new-to-me book that I had not seen much of before requesting it for review on audio. I’ve been in a contemporary mood, and this was the perfect book to satisfy my new habit of mood reading. I loved the writing. It’s told in the second person, with Willa narrating to you as the reader. It was a fun and unique was to […]

Realistic and Unapologetic // Delicate by C.K. Kelly Martin

My Thoughts: Delicate was a new to me book that I decided to review on a whim – simply because, HELLO, sounds amazing. It was full of drama; touching on many situations and themes in an unapologetic way I like to see in YA. No sugar-coating at all – and I loved seeing that. Both Ivy and Lucan are dealing with serious issues in their life and find comfort in […]

Audio Book Review | Symptoms of Being Human by Jeff Garvin

My thoughts: The Symptoms of Being Human is quite the story, one that I feel is important and a must read.  It’s informative, eye-opening, funny and heartfelt all in one swoop. Some issues not withstanding, the execution of this novel was nothing short of brilliant. The lack of pronouns would at times, frustrate me, but it’s necessary to really understand the story and GET IT. As a reader, we never find […]
