Book Review: The Strange Journey of Alice Pendelbury by Marc Levy

You know, love at first sight only exists in books. In real life, feelings grow slowly, the way one builds a house, stone by stone. Book Rating 4.5/5 Book Review Marc Levy does it again! I enjoyed the last book I read by him, P.S. From Paris. So, I already had high expectations… and they were…

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: 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.

That, and tax exemptions.” Book Rating 2.5/5 Book Review Happy Doomsday had redeeming qualities, for sure. It was well-written, and the characters were awesome, especially Dev.…

Book Review: A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman

People said Ove saw the world in black and white. But she was color. All the color he had. Book Rating 5/5 Book Review Oh, my goodness. I haven’t felt these many feelings in a book since The Great Alone. If you want to laugh, cry, sob, sit and reflect on life… A Man Called…

Book Review: The Things We Wish Were True by Marybeth Mayhew Whalen

Book Rating 3.5/5 Book Review Wow! I was addicted to The Things We Wish Were True. I got it on Kindle Unlimited forever ago, but then I realized it was a free audible too, sooo I dove right in. Another one I listened to over reading. At first, I was really concerned. There are a…

Book Review: The Naturalist by Andrew Mayne

Book Rating 3.5/5 Book Review The Naturalist was another book I listened to on tape, as you can see at my attempt of a bookstagram-worthy photo. There were a lot of great things about this book. First, the story was amazing. It kept me up at night. I listened to it while I was moving…
