Malevolent by Jana DeLeon ~ #Fiction #Book #Review

  This was a good book. Not excellent, but there was nothing about it that I found lacking. The main character, Shaye Archer, is just damaged enough, and in an interesting enough way, to provide the author with ample room … Continue reading

Harmony by Carolyn Parkhurst ~ #Fiction #Book #Review

  This book is written by the author of the Dogs of Babel, and while it’s no masterpiece (it’s kind of an odd nut), it is a thought provoking glimpse into a family with a child on the autism spectrum, … Continue reading

Chasing Fireflies by Charles Martin ~ #Fiction #Book #Review

  I almost bailed on this book. 25 pages in, I was overwhelmed by cars and sports and what seemed to be a book so geared towards men that testosterone was rising from the pages in waves. By 25% of … Continue reading

The Girl from the Sea by Shalini Boland ~ Fiction Book Review

I’d give the plot of this book an A, the execution a B-. Despite a fresh, original premise, the character’s internal dialogue was so repetitive at times that it was annoying. Even though most chapters ended with a tasty cliffhanger, … Continue reading

Now You See Me by S.J. Bolton ~ Fiction Book Review

What are these British authors doing to me?!?! I’m trying not to find any more series to get wrapped up in, but the Brits just keep drawing me in! This book was fast paced and gritty, with deeply damaged characters … Continue reading

Summit Lake by Charlie Donlea ~ Fiction Book Review

This is a by-the-book-mystery, which I feel like I come across very rarely lately. As a mystery lover, this book didn’t appeal to me just because it stuck to the formula as much as all aspects of the formula were … Continue reading

Well, you can’t love them all. I heard a lot of hype about this author and decided to check her out. The book was well written, suspenseful, and kept me reading. That said, something about it really pissed me off, … Continue reading
