Mini Review: Catch Me if You Can by Christine Bell

Mini Review: Catch Me if You Can by Christine Bell

When two con artists come together the sparks are sure to fly! Sadie and Jake are absolutely perfect together. Both of their back stories are compelling and it is easy to understand why they chose to take the path they are on. The flow was fast paced and it was easy to devour in one day. There were a few grammatical errors, but nothing that couldn’t be overlooked. Character development was strong, but it was the ending that dropped this story down a star. It was wrapped up too fast, questions were left unanswered, and the curve ball future that… Read more »

Review – What You Left Behind

Review – What You Left Behind

**I received a digital galley of this book for reviewing purposes from the publisher through Edelweiss. About the book What You Left Behind is a police/detective type mystery set in England. Two of my favorite things in one book. Detective Inspector Lorraine Fisher has gone to visit her sister Jo. It’s only supposed to be a visit; no business, but Lorraine arrives shortly after a young homeless man has committed suicide. Not such a big deal, except over the past year there have been several suicides in that community, so people are actually thinking its some kind of suicide plague…. Read more »

#Discussion- Weird things I do when I read

This post needs no explanation- the title says it all. So, as I was reading the other day, I realized I was doing something that might be considered by some as weird. The book I was writing was set in London, so I was reading it in my head in an English accent (not the whole thing, just when people talked). YES I JUST ADMITTED THAT. And it’s not the first time I’ve done it either. In fact, pretty much any book that I read where someone talks in an accent, I read in one. Crazy, I know. That got… Read more »

JR Ward/ Karen Marie Moning Signing Recap

JR Ward/ Karen Marie Moning Signing Recap

J.R. Ward is my new favorite lady! Not only was the signing a blast because we got to share our love for the books, but Ward had me rolling on the floor laughing. I am so glad I attended this signing. If you are a fan of J.R. Ward in any sense, I encourage you to attend one of her signing Q&As at least once. They chose to give out wristbands with numbers on them. I love this system because it guaranteed that if you got a wristband, then your books would be signed and you would have a seat for… Read more »

Book Review- The Good Girl by Mary Kubica

Book Review- The Good Girl by Mary Kubica

Okay, I listened to this on audiobook so I am going to be reviewing not only the book itself, but the audio performance as well I LOVE suspenseful books. I like when things are a puzzle and all the pieces don’t fit or come together right away. That is one of the reasons The Good Girl intrigued me. I knew it was going to be a roller-coaster ride of suspense. Also, the cover. Yes, I know the old saying about not judging a book by its cover. However, I am guilty of doing so on more than occasion. AND THIS… Read more »

Sideswiped by Lia Riley Blog Tour!

I really enjoyed UPSIDE DOWN, book 1 in the series. Sure, I had a few issues with it like any other book, but they were fairly easily overlooked. I found SIDESWIPED to be the same way. A cute story about a strong couple in a power struggle, it was interesting to find out where Talia and Bran left off when Talia had to return home. This book began with Talia and Bran reuniting after several months apart. Both have anxieties about seeing the other. They are afraid even though they left loving one another that maybe one of them moved… Read more »

#Discussion: Book vs. Movie The Maze Runner

#Discussion: Book vs. Movie The Maze Runner

WARNING!!! This review contains spoilers for both the movie and book. Read at your own risk!! Okay, I don’t really know where to begin with this one. I am a firm believer in reading the book before you watch the movie. I was somewhat interested in The Maze Runner when I first heard about it. However, when I learned that it was being made into a movie with Dylan O’Brien playing main character Thomas, that alone was enough motivation to read it. (Yes I am 30 something, and I’m also very serious). SO I read the book months ago and… Read more »
