Watching You is a quick read, mostly because you won't be able to stop turning the pages furiously, with lots of satisfying twists and turns.
Today I'm reviewing Best Day Ever by Kaira Rouda. I was intrigued by the description of the book. Of course, when something is supposed to be the "best day ever", it's clear from the beginning it won't be. It'll probably be the worst day ever for someone. This book is definitely dark. And it's one... Continue Reading →
I already had this galley on my Kindle, ready to go, when I attended a Mary Kubica book event at my local library. She recommended The Breakdown as a great title for her fans, so of course I had to run home and immediately begin reading it. I was fighting to keep my eyes open,... Continue Reading →
I'm kind of excited for my very first blog to be a review on Every Last Lie by Mary Kubica. Let me explain. This is her 4th book, and every single one has been amazing! She is also a local author and although I have never met her, I can claim that some of my... Continue Reading →
Sometimes you need to read something that's a little dark. Or should I say sometimes I need to read something that's a little dark? Because really, there is a lot in life that isn't sunshine and roses. I guess I could see how someone might choose to just read romance or chick-lit to escape it... Continue Reading →
I just finished my 71st book of the year. Nine more to go to make my goal for 2018. Which is funny because last year I just happened to read 72 without any goal and thought, maybe I should go for a round number? But I also wonder if I'll have time to read nine... Continue Reading →
I loved The Wife Between Us. Like, really loved it. And it was a New York Times best-seller--can't argue with that, huh? So when I saw that Hendricks and Pekkanen had teamed up for another book--An Anonymous Girl, it shot straight to the top of my TBR list. Sometimes I just brace myself for a... Continue Reading →
The premise of The Au Pair pulled me in right away. A woman throws herself off a cliff behind her isolated estate the night she gives birth to twins.
Normally I'm pretty hard on books. I rarely give 5 stars. And I was explaining this to my husband by saying, "There really isn't a perfect book." Which is true. But he questioned my logic (not the first time that has happened!) And while it's true that there aren't perfect books, I think maybe I... Continue Reading →
The reason I picked up The Witch Elm by Tana French is...well, Tana French. She's an amazing writer. And not all writers have the ability to write super thick and meaty books that are still page-turners from cover to cover. With a novel that is over 500 pages of smallish-print I'd expect a good portion... Continue Reading →
How well do you remember your childhood? In my memory, I picture many experiences as a movie with a golden tinge to the picture. Is this normal? It feels like a dreamier time, mostly good memories but some of the details are fuzzy. I remember the friends, the fun, sitting on the hot wooden bench... Continue Reading →
Broken Things came on my radar when I saw some fellow bloggers post favorable reviews. It's mystery/suspense/fiction meets fairy-tale. They are interwoven together. That sounded interesting to me. And the book definitely had a Special Topics in Calamity Physics feel to it and I loved that book. I'd never heard of Lauren Oliver, perhaps because... Continue Reading →
