Book Review: What The Wind Knows by Amy Harmon

I know the novelty will wear off, and life will intrude before long. But it is not the newness of her, the newness of us, that has captured me. It is the opposite. It is as if we always were and always will be, as though our love and our lives sprang from the same…

Book Review: Ask Again, Yes by Mary Beth Keane

It was pointless anyway–all the blah-blah-blabbing and, still, no one understood each other. Book Rating 4/5 Book Review What a roller coaster of emotions for me… This book was so “real life” and practical. It didn’t feel like fiction; it felt like real life. It had so many doses of reality. I can’t say it’s…

Book Review: Little Darlings by Melanie Golding

Look at something every day for long enough and you stop seeing what everyone else sees. You start to see what no one else sees, what is kept hidden from most people. Book Rating 4/5 Book Review Ever wanted to question your sanity and get a creepy feeling that extends down your spine? Have I…

Book Review: You’ll Never Know, Dear by Hallie Ephron

Book Review: Bird Box by Josh Malerman

Boxed in, she thinks. Forever. Book Rating 4/5 Book Review I got chills! They’re multiplying. And I’m loooosing control… Ok, I’ll stop, call it a coping mechanism. No, but, seriously. Bird Box freaked me out. I’m going around turning all the lights on and looking around, but then remembering not to look and closing my eyes.…

Book Review: One Day in December by Josie Silver

Sometimes you just meet the right person at the wrong time… and you spend every day afterward wishing that time could be rearranged. Book Rating 5/5 Book Review Here I am, one day in December, with my fireplace going, folk music playing, glass of wine in hand, tears glistening in my eyes. I just finished…

Book Review: The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid

Book Rating 4/5 Book Review I saw The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo literally everywhere, but avoided it incessantly. It seemed like a book I wouldn’t particularly like. Typically, books about movie stars don’t make my short list. However, I stumbled upon it in my Scribd library, and thought, well…might as well give it a…
