Not That Easy – Radhika Sanghani

Not That Easy – Radhika Sanghani

♦ I was hoping this would be a cute book about a twenty-something finding herself and learning and growing. Instead I read a book about a whiny main character who is determined to be a slut and has no self-confidence. “I just want to have my slutty phase already.” “He’d see […]

Beautiful Affliction A Memoir – Lene Fogelberg

Beautiful Affliction A Memoir – Lene Fogelberg

4.75 Stars ♦ Oh you guys! This, this is the memoir I have been wanting to read. Beautiful Affliction is so powerful and fluid, this could easily stand as a fiction novel, but the fact that it is a true tale makes it just so much more. When a three […]

The Little Paris Bookshop – Nina George

The Little Paris Bookshop – Nina George

♦ The Little Paris Bookshop was a perfectly average book. The plot was fine, pacing fine, characters fine, writing fine; nothing really stood out as fantastic and nothing was abjectly horrible. The whole book revolves around Monsieur Perdu, a bookseller, who lost his love twenty years ago and has still […]

Led Astray: The Best of Kelley Armstrong – Kelley Armstrong

Led Astray: The Best of Kelley Armstrong – Kelley Armstrong

♦ I am a lover of Kelley Armstrong. I read and own her Otherworld, Cainsville, Age of Legends and Darkest Powers & Darkness Rising series. She is one of my auto buy authors, so when I was offered a chance to read Led Astray, I jumped on it. It features stories […]

♦ I really enjoyed This Is Your Life, Harriet Chance! I was not expecting such a refreshing tale about an elderly widow and her children. I was worried that this would be contrived or flat. However this book was full of heart and personality. Harriet is a smart and engaging […]

The Girl’s Guide to the Apocalypse – Daphne Lamb

The Girl’s Guide to the Apocalypse – Daphne Lamb

♦ I went into this book with not very high expectations, and ended it happy I was wrong. The Girl’s Guide to the Apocalypse is a funny read about the end of the world as we know it (and I feel fine) and one girl stuck in it. Verdell isn’t […]

A Beginner’s Guide to Paradise – Alex Sheshunoff

A Beginner’s Guide to Paradise – Alex Sheshunoff

♦ So another memoir that was fine. Not bad but not great. I am really looking for a memoir that draws me into that period in another’s life and immerses me into their truth. This one, while a good read, did not suck me in. It read as more of […]
