Oh, this is a must read Christmas season (or any season) read. I'm so grateful to be a part of this blog tour for An Unexpected Angel. It was the perfect read for this month and I loved it.Ella is one bitter girl. I can honestly say that in the beginning I didn't like her very much at all. Sh...

Towards the end of this novel one of the characters says "This story is too ridiculous for words!" which neatly sums up the whole work.Andrew Marr is an accomplished, prolific, argumentative political commentator. He is having lots of fun here satirizing the British Establishment, its politicians...
Poison Pill (2013)

I received this book free from Net Galley in exchange for an honest review.I really enjoyed this book. It had a lot of plot twists and I did not see the ending until close to the end of the book. I was, however, amazed that the author of this book was a New York Times best seller previously. I...
Lethal Rhythm (2010)

I got this through a Goodreads giveaway, thank you! This book was not quite was I was expecting--I think I was hoping for more of a sleuth, murder-mystery kind of story, but this seemed to be more about the problems with malpractice suits. It felt like there was some bias in the writing, which ...

Let It Be (2013)

Lovely cover, the book was sort of average though. Nice story, but nice is just such an insufficient term. Part coming of age story, part family drama set in 1979 Texas to the last album of the most famous band in the world. Basic plot is...a young mother of two kids decides to leave her abusive ...
Something Rich and Strange: Selected Stories (2014)
4.25 of 5 Votes: 1
A title couldn't better describe what Ron Rash has written here. Short stories giving the reader a glimpse intimate and frightening of scenes of the south. Spanning the breadth of a hundred years, Rash covers the mentality of people who's stories are perhaps only whispered in bar rooms and around...
Standby, Chicago (2011)
3.44 of 5 Votes: 5
This book is about taking risks and what can happen if you put yourself out on a line. All the characters take risks but none more so than the protagonist, James. Chance meetings can lead to who knows what - but you never know until you try. The book takes place on a flight to Chicago and five da...
The Stall of Second Chances (2014)
4 of 5 Votes: 2
I'm giving this book two stars because it is set in DC and it talks a lot about farmer's markets. When I read the summary of this book, for some very mistaken reason I thought it was going to be a mostly-realistic account of becoming a food writer. [I should probably end the review here.] Instead...
Animal Cracker (2013)
3.81 of 5 Votes: 1
This one was really well done. The characters were highly developed and believable - I really got my hate on for the villain. The real surprise to me was that no one actually killed the jerk! Well written, with lots of details about what it takes to run a successful non-profit animal rescue (and ...
Sons of Anarchy: Bratva (2014)

I read this book for pure fun. I am somewhat of a S.o.A addict and an admirer of Opie so when I discovered that there was a S.o.A novel, I was pretty excited, when I realized it had Opie in it, I freaked.This was not my first book of Christopher Golden as I have read a great deal of his Angel/Buf...

Academy Street (2014)
4.06 of 5 Votes: 3
A beautifully written short novel by an inspiring author. Academy street has a distinct Irish voice, following the story of a young Irish girl who loses her mother to an aged woman all alone. The story follows Tess, an unassuming child who eventually immigrates to America. She's quiet, makes few ...
Perfect Girl (2014)
3.89 of 5 Votes: 1
I was really taken by the perfect characterisation the author achieved in this book. Every single character (even someone who literally appears for 5 minutes) is so vividly and precisely described. Carol, our main heroine in this novel, is a most astounding young woman. She is extremely feisty an...
Jennifer Love Hewitt Times Infinity (2010)
4.36 of 5 Votes: 4
A fast, funny, extremely well written collection of flash length stories around the character of Jennifer Love Hewitt. Fanning has a strange and interesting mind, to be sure, but the stories aren't just quirky, they live and breathe and make you feel. Some of the sentences and paragraphs are down...
