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…

Finding Audrey

Read: 01/18-01/19 Since the previous book I had read wasn’t quite as light-hearted as I had wanted I decided to stick to my goal of reading something with a little humor. So I browsed my shelves looking for a book that would fit this need. Finding Audrey is written by Sophie Kinsella. It follows a…

My Life Next Door

Read: 01/12-01/13 I had read a lot of heavy, serious books in a row and decided that I wanted to read something lighter and happier. I think everyone should read “fluffy” books. A good old fashioned romantic comedy is a great way to refresh your brain. So I grabbed a book that seemed to fit…

The Killing Woods

Read: 01/11-01/12 I read Stolen by Lucy Christopher a couple years ago and I really enjoyed that book so I didn’t hesitate when I saw her other book on the shelf. However, it was another one of the books that sat on myself for a while. One reason could because it is a smaller book and…

Since You’ve Been Gone

Read: 1/09-1/10 This was another book that had been sitting on myself for a while and taunting me. I had purchased this book with a few others that were similar so unfortunately this one had gotten set aside. However, in the middle of winter I had decided I was in the mood for a good…

The Forbidden Orchid

Read: 1/08-1/09 I love when a books title and cover grab your attention. I had seen this book on the shelf and it caught my eye right away. Then once I read the description I knew this was a book I would be returning to soon. Luckily it was waiting for me wrapped under the…

Spindle

Read: 1/06-1/08 This book showed up as a surprise in the mail. It was a Christmas gift from a friend. She had even gotten it autographed for me! I loved getting books as gifts because it means that someone looked at a book and thought of me. If I can have people think of me…

The Retribution of Mara Dyer

Read: 1/04-1/06 The conclusion to the Mara Dyer Trilogy is here! I wish that after I read the first book in the series I was able to read the rest of the books. However, that only seems to work once I have read the sequel to the book. Like the reviews of other sequels I…

The Evolution of Mara Dyer

Read: 12/27-1/03 I had decided near the end of the year that I wanted to finish some of the book series that I had started. I am really bad about reading the first book in a series and then putting off the rest of the series for a while. Even when all of the books…

Shatter Me

Read: 12/25-12/26 This was a book that I had seen on the shelves and at different festivals for a while but never really looked into. Then my friend read it and told me how much she enjoyed it so I decided to see what it was about. The premise definitely caught my attention so I…

The May Queen Murders

Read: 12/23-12/25 This book was read over Christmas weekend but it is as far from Christmas as possible. It was one of those books that I started but just couldn’t seem to focus on so I put it back on my shelf to wait for another time. Well I had the thought that maybe if…
