Review: Where There’s Smoke by Jodi Picoult

This was an interesting story to read. It’s not your typical Jodi Picoult story. Her books usually start off slow and take some time for me to get fully into. This one was captivating from page 1 and kept my interest throughout. It was much faster pace than her other […]

Review: The First Time by Joy Fielding

This book started off interesting and captivating and I was eager to see where it would go.  However, after a certain point, it got quite boring.  Basically just waiting for the inevitable.  I didn’t like Jake as a character, so I wasn’t rooting for his relationship with Mattie.  I think […]

Review: From Here to You by Jamie McGuire

From Here to You is a cute little romance. It was super easy to get into and read until the end. There were a few things that bothered me, but overall it was a decent read. I liked the characters, but it had an unrealistic male lead. I mean, it’s […]

Review: Wish You Were Here by Renee Carlino

I’m finding it difficult to write a review on this book.  I had a lot of feelings crop up throughout the book and my overall thoughts on the book changed a couple times while reading.  The thing is, I can’t share the details of those thoughts and feelings without spoiling […]

Release Day Review: That Night by Amy Giles

  This book was okay.  It started off better than it finished.  It was captivating and interesting for about the first half, but then it lost its captivity factor and I found the last half to drag on and was a bit boring.  I even skimmed the last couple of […]

Review: My Squirrel Days by Ellie Kemper

In the author’s note at the beginning of the book, Ellie talks about how she was stressed because she didn’t know if she had enough interesting content to put into the book: “You see, Reader, I knew that I had some great wisdom to offer you, but I worried that […]

Review: All Your Perfects by Colleen Hoover

All Your Perfects captivated me from page 1!  I sooo love when that happens. This book is such a sad, but great, depiction of what real life is.  Life is hard.  Marriage is hard.  You’re going to have ups and downs in your relationship.  And you’re going to have struggles […]

Review: Nobody Said It’d Be Easy by Patty Blount

This book’s storytelling and captivity factor is extremely good.  Every time I picked the book back up, I found it super easy to get right back into it.  I didn’t even have to think about anything.  I didn’t zone out at all while reading.  It was just a really nice, […]
