This Is My Last Post

This Is My Last Post

  Hi guys! I’ve been doing some thinking and have decided to quit blogging. I started blogging in 2011, and all these years I’ve been lying to you. I can no longer deal with the guilt. This entire blog has been a fraud and our friendships were built on deceit. I am truly sorry. This […]

Sea of Stars by Amy A. Bartol

Sea of Stars by Amy A. Bartol

I don’t even know exactly what it is about this series that causes the addictive feeling I get while reading it. It’s weird. When I finished Sea of Stars, I immediately went back and reread the last four chapters because I wasn’t ready to let go. I rarely do that, but I craved more. This […]

Sunday Post #120 (3/29/15)

The Sunday Post is hosted by Kimba Caffeinated Book Reviewer. Whadda week! Glad it’s over. My son’s on spring break now and I’m jealous. It’s been so warm here, even had record breaking temps on Friday – 92º. Who’s excited for The Walking Dead season finale? Me! Dear SW – You don’t have to creep, […]

The Start of Me and You by Emery Lord

The Start of Me and You by Emery Lord

Well wasn’t this a lovely book! You know how it’s so hard to tell now whether a YA book would be appropriate for the younger crowd? The Start of Me and You certainly is. In fact, it’s a book I’d love for all girls starting in the pre-teens to read. With that being said, this […]

Finding Mr. Brightside by Jay Clark

Finding Mr. Brightside by Jay Clark

Okay, this was better than I expected. I thought Finding Mr. Brightside was going to be all super sappy and dramatic, but not so. This is actually a lot of fun. Yes, there are serious subject matters, but it’s not all done in a Debbie Downer way. Juliette and Abram both lost a parent. At […]

Normal by Graeme Cameron

Normal by Graeme Cameron

Hell yes! Normal is a total win. I had high hopes for this book and it totally lived up to them. I can’t help it, I love getting the story from the serial killer’s perspective. It’s friggin’ disturbing, yet completely fascinating. And it’s definitely 100% entertaining. Normal is told from the main character’s perspective. What’s […]

Sunday Post #119 (3/22/15)

The Sunday Post is hosted by Kimba Caffeinated Book Reviewer. Yaaaawn … I haven’t been so happy for the weekend in a long time. Last week required too much brain power, and now it’s on autopilot. Like usual. Thankfully next week shouldn’t be as bad. I think a trip to the beach is in my […]

Dark Alchemy by Laura Bickle

Dark Alchemy by Laura Bickle

“As above, so below” I almost kept scrolling when I first came upon Dark Alchemy, but then I noticed Laura Bickle is the author and immediately knew I had to read it. I friggin’ love her Hallowed Ones series, so had high hopes for this. There’s mystery and magic and mayhem. Oh, my! Can’t go […]

Leaving Amarillo by Caisey Quinn

Leaving Amarillo by Caisey Quinn

Yee-haw! Leaving Amarillo is the first book I’ve read by Caisey Quinn, and now I’m looking forward to more. This book brings out all the feels. Dixie is 19, and plays the fiddle in a band with her older brother and Gavin. Gavin had a pretty crappy home life growing up, but he always had […]

Written in Red by Anne Bishop

Written in Red by Anne Bishop

I read the first two books of Anne Bishop’s Black Jewel series many years ago because someone practically forced me to. I liked them okay, but I just wasn’t into them, so I never continued the series. That’s why I didn’t give Written in Red much thought when it first made an appearance. Then it […]
