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. […]

Brother by Ania Ahlborn

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 […]

The Passage by Justin Cronin

Review: Borrowed Crime: A Bookmobile Cat Mystery

Borrowed Crime: A Bookmobile Cat Mystery by Laurie Cass My rating: 3 of 5 stars This time, Eddie and Minnie’s adventures weren’t as suspenseful. I didn’t feel the need to keep reading like I did through the last two books. In fact, I almost didn’t finish it. But I really like the characters and the […]
