Matchmaking for Beginners by Maddie Dawson ~ #Fiction #BookReview

This isn’t the type of book I would normally have chosen for myself. The description was kind of dramatic and cutesy and not at all suspenseful or mysterious, but it was one of the monthly free books offered by Amazon … Continue reading

With as many books as I’ve read, especially growing up, it seems a bit odd that I’ve never read about Alice and her adventures. But somewhere between seeing Spot run and and three guys who were Musketeers, (and yes, a … Continue reading

The Walls Around Us by Nova Ren Suma~ YA Book Review

This book was strange. While the basic premise wasn’t the freshest, what the author did with it kind of was. By just adding a few oddities, the author took an old trope and made it feel new. And fun. This … Continue reading

I’ll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson ~ YA Book Review

The Mutual Admiration Society by Lesley Kagen ~ Fiction Book Review

Reconstructing Amelia by Kimberly McCreight ~ Fiction Book Review

This book was on my kindle forever. There was no particular reason why I kept passing it up – it just never seemed like the ‘time’ to read it. Until now, that it, when the only books on my kindle … Continue reading

The Lying Game by Ruth Ware ~ Fiction Book Review

I’ve been a big fan of Ruth Ware since her debut book, In a Dark, Dark Wood found it’s way into my hand. Her next book was a bit of a departure from the first, good, but a little far fetched … Continue reading
