Witches of East End

Read: 03/26-03/29 After reading several dark and suspenseful books I decided to make a change in the genre I was reading. So I switched it up and went with a fantasy novel. I had high expectations for this book because I enjoyed the TV show so much. I know I should learn to not compare…

Girls on Fire

Read: 03/21-03/26 I had my eye on this book when it first came out but it was one I decided to wait to get it until it was in paperback. Well once that book hit the “New in Paperback” display I grabbed it up. I was on a suspense and twisted binge with my books…

The Kind Worth Killing

Read: 03/15-03/19 Another good place to get book recommendations is from book clubs. One of the book clubs I am sort of a member of (moving back and forth gets in the way of book clubs) is set up so that everyone just shares the book they are currently reading, instead of everyone reading the…

The Drowning Girls

Read: 03/03-03/07 There are many great tools out there when it comes to finding new books. One of the ones I like to use is Pinterest. There are multiple different “pins” out there to help recommend new books based on ones you’ve read before. That was how I came across this book. The Drowning Girls…

Big Little Lies

Read: 02/28-03/03 Once again I was the person who decided to read a book because it was going to be a movie/television show. I also bought the tv show cover which some people consider a big no-no. But I say as long as books are being bought and read it doesn’t matter why you choose…

Reign of Shadows

Read: 02/25-02/28 Another day, another book recommended by a friend. I remember when she was reading this book. We were on a “staycation” and we were having a conversation about how annoying it is when two characters just won’t kiss. Then she proceeded to tell me about the book she was reading and how she…

The Raven King

Read: 02/22-02/24 This is the final review of the Raven Cycle and it was an emotional journey. I read this entire series in about a week. It was definitely a roller coaster. However, I would recommend reading this entire series back-to-back. I truly think that is the best way to experience the entire series. It…

Blue Lily, Lily Blue

Read: 02/21-02/22 It is time for the review of the third book. Once again I started this book immediately after finishing the second one. The sequel ended with a cliff hanger that I needed answers to. Blue Lily, Lily Blue brings us closer to the location of Glendower. At the same time the characters are…

The Dream Thieves

Read: 02/20-02/21 So as you all know I am typically not that good at finishing series. I’ll usually finish the first book and then don’t get to the rest for a while. Well let’s call in my new years resolution or something but I have been better at that since the start of 2017. So…

The Raven Boys

Read: 02/18-02/20 I had heard of this book before. During all my time working at a bookstore and visiting various bookstores I had seen it on shelves. I always just passed it by without a second thought. I never even imagined myself picking the book up off the shelf. However, one of my best friends…

The Knife of Never Letting Go

Read: 01/28-02/18 I love falling in love with a new author’s writing style. When that happens I will try to find out how many books they have so I can read them all. When I read A Monster Calls I instantly loved Patrick Ness’s writing. So when I saw this book on a display at the…

A Study in Charlotte

Read: 01/19-01/28 I have never read any of the Sherlock Holmes books and I was never into the various television shows or movies either. So it surprised me that I wanted to read this book. It didn’t seem like something that would normally pique my interest but sometimes it is best to get out of…
