Book Review: Sphere by Michael Crichton

“We are, in reality, terribly frail animals. And we don’t like to be reminded of how frail we are–how delicate the balances are inside our own bodies, how short our stay on Earth, and how easily it is ended.” Book Rating 4/5 Book Review Well, Michael Crichton is starting to become one of my favorite…

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: If He Wakes by Zoe Lea

Book Rating 3/5 Book Review If He Wakes by Zoe Lea is a good thriller, and a nice, rather quick read. I received a ARC for an honest review. All of these thoughts are my own. And, I would say that this novel is definitely good, but it didn’t blow me away. I stayed interested…

Book Review: The Circle by Dave Eggers

Book Rating 2/5 Book Review UGH. WHYYY!? This book has such great ideas. I’m writing this whining, literally whining. I want you to imagine my words drawn out and said in some dramatic tone because I’m. So. Mad. Right. Nowwww. I started it with gusto! Yaaas, Dave Eggers, tell us more about The Circle. I’m…
