Bring Me Back by B.A. Paris

Bring Me Back by B.A. Paris My rating: 3 of 5 stars I wanted to get to this review closer to the time I finished the book, so my memory would be fresh. Sadly, I wasn’t inspired to write a fully fleshed out review. I enjoyed the book. I really did. It was cheesy, yes. […]

Plum Dandi Knits

Plum Dandi Knits by Alicia Plummer and Melissa Schaschwary

I really wanted to LOVE this book. However, I found it to be a solidly average book.  Let’s start with the flawed presentation.

Brother by Ania Ahlborn My rating: 4 of 5 stars Awesome Thriller Wow. This was a great thriller. As I was explaining to others, it’s like a great episode of Criminal Minds, but more demented. I expected it to be crazy but I’m surprised at how for it went. The way each plot point was […]

Review: Dark Eden

Dark Eden by Patrick Carman My rating: 3 of 5 stars The story was good and I enjoyed the main character. The writing was a bit simple, but I understand to expect that from some YA books. The best part of all is the reference to some classic works of literature that might help kids […]

Review: The Little Green Book of Chairman Rahma

The Little Green Book of Chairman Rahma by Brian Herbert My rating: 1 of 5 stars I’m glad my updates about this book didn’t take. I was a little upset and spewing some vitriol. But the truth of the matter is that I didn’t like it. Not one bit. The writing was… ugh. I can’t […]

Review: That Night

That Night by Chevy Stevens My rating: 5 of 5 stars Sometimes, after reading several ho-hum books in a row, I get a little frustrated and start to forget the excitement that a book can hold. So I get surprised when a book keeps me up all night reading and evokes physical responses of tension, […]
