DNF Round Up

By | Monday, October 9, 2017|dnf, reviews|15 Comments

Well, its that time again. Time for me to tell you all about the books lately that didn’t make the cut. All of these books got DNF’d because I wasn’t enjoying the reading. It’s unfortunate, but it does happen. My apologies to the authors and publishers in advance.   DNF at 43% – […]

Review: EMMA IN THE NIGHT by Wendy Walker

I so enjoyed Wendy Walker’s ALL IS NOT FORGOTTEN. I was elated to read another book by this author. EMMA IN THE NIGHT is a story about two sisters. This story is also about narcissism and how it can affect a family. Cass, 15, and her sister, 17,  have been missing for three […]

Recent Reads -Women on the Edge: ALMOST MISSED YOU and A SIMPLE FAVOR

By | Tuesday, June 13, 2017|2 kisses, 4 kisses, Mystery, Psycological, reviews, Thriller|3 Comments

These two books are both written by debut authors and feature women in trouble. I would classify them both as mystery/thriller. Other than that, they aren’t really that similar. I liked one much more than the other. I love the idea of this book. ALMOST MISSED YOU is about second chances and what-ifs […]

Review: THE PERFECT STRANGER by Megan Miranda

By | Thursday, May 18, 2017|4 kisses, Mystery, reviews, Thriller|3 Comments

I was totally blown away last year by ALL THE MISSING GIRLS. I knew this book wouldn’t be written in the same backwards fashion, but I still expected a lot. I was not disappointed. This author has a talent for writing mystery. The story starts with Leah’s fixation on her free spirited roommate […]

Review: NOS4A2 by Joe Hill

By | Saturday, May 6, 2017|4 kisses, Fantasy, Horror, reviews, Thriller|11 Comments

This story was such good fun. NOS4A2 features Victoria MacQueen as the female protagonist/heroine within a vampire-ish nightmare. But it isn’t really about vampire. I know “what!” Read my description….or skip down to watch the author describe NOS4A2. Victoria starts with a unique ability to find lost things. She rides her bike, a […]

Review: THE GIRL BEFORE by J. P. Delaney

By | Friday, February 3, 2017|3 kisses, Mystery, Psycological, reviews, Thriller|4 Comments

I wanted to love THE GIRL BEFORE. I definitely did at first, even when I realized it sounded like a book I read last year. The only things that kept me determined to finish this book was 1) what actually happened to Emma, and 2) I wanted to learn more about the house […]

You know that feeling you get when you can’t wait to get back to reading a book? That was me with THE RIVER AT NIGHT. I have been in a bit of a rut with reading lately. This book got me excited about reading again. I couldn’t wait to find out what happened […]

Review: THE MOST DANGEROUS PLACE ON EARTH by Lindsey Lee Johnson

By | Wednesday, January 18, 2017|2 kisses, reviews, YA|9 Comments

I have to be honest and tell you how uncomfortable this book made me. In reading about these high school kids fumble through their social and educational settings, I had a knot in the pit of my stomach. I don’t want to think about those years, those uncomfortable settings, allowing things spin out […]
