The Perfect Girl by Gilly Macmillan ~ Fiction Book Review

I really liked this author’s other book, “What She Knew”. It had a great twist that I never saw coming and impressed me enough that I gave this one a try when I came across it and recognized the author’s … Continue reading

Paper Towns by John Green ~ YA Fiction Book Review

John Green can write. I don’t think anyone disputes that. He creates characters that feel authentic and real, but this book left me severely underwhelmed. I’ve never read another book that won the YA Edgar Award, but I can’t help … Continue reading

Dead Souls by Angela Marsons ~ Fiction Book Review

There’s nothing like a D.I. Kim Stone thriller to get me out of a reading slump! I didn’t like this one quite as much as the others in the series, the author shook the characters up a bit and took … Continue reading

You by Caroline Kepnes ~ Fiction Book Review

Um . . . so that just happened. Interesting. In the beginning, I thought it was addicting, but at times it became a bit much. I needed some space. This one was an interesting journey, definitely fresh, and I’m glad … Continue reading

The Lion, the Lamb, the Hunted by Andrew E. Kaufman ~ #Fiction #Book #Review

  This book was a surprise. The writing was good, the plot was tense, the pacing quick, and there was plenty of action. I liked it better than I expected. The characters weren’t overly endearing, but they weren’t overly annoying, either. … Continue reading

The Killing Lessons by Saul Black ~ #Fiction #Book #Review

I have mixed feelings about this one. It was dark and gritty and brutal, the characters were deep and intense, but I feel like it should have been about 100 pages shorter. This is what I’ve come to term a … Continue reading

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

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
