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

Book Rating 3.5/5 Book Review The cover of this book and description led me to believe this would be a really scary, suspenseful read. While that wasn’t entirely the case, I did enjoy this read! I would classify You’ll Never Know, Dear as a mystery, almost a cozy one but not quite. I wouldn’t say…

Book Review: No Exit by Taylor Adams

History doesn’t quite repeat itself, but damn, it sure can rhyme. Book Rating 4.5/5 Book Review First book of 2019, and I am so glad I chose this one! I greedily devoured this book. I read it in two work nights, which is a huge deal for me. Typically I cook, eat, and go to bed.…

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.

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…

Book Review: Happy Doomsday by David Sosnowski

“So you want to make up a whole new religion just so a kid will stop asking questions,” Lucy said. Dev nodded. “That’s what religion was for, wasn’t it? 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: An Absolutely Remarkable Thing by Hank Green

“What is reality except for the things that people universally experience the same way?” Book Rating 4.25/5 Book Review An Absolutely Remarkable Thing had a strikingly original idea, or maybe I just haven’t read enough science fiction! I loved the narrator, April May, although sometimes she infuriated me. But at least she knew it. The…
