The Girl Who Lived: A Thrilling Suspense Novel
The Girl Who Lived: A Thrilling Suspense Novel

Review: I’d received a copy of this book via Netgalley and promptly forgot about it due to school and other obligations. I started, and finished, it today. This is an amazing story with so many twists and turns. Faith is a fantastic character and the story is told at just the right pace. I recommend this book 110%, you will not be disappointed!

The Punch Escrow
The Punch Escrow

Review: It has enough imagination and plot suspense to balance out its flaws. The characters are undeveloped and the momentum is stalled too many places with rambling explanations of technology, larded with commentary intended to be clever. While the action is continuous, I found myself getting impatient for it to "get somewhere." The resolution of one of the major conflicts is a predictable cop-out. I wouldn't put this on top of the stack on your night table, but it's readable. Read more

Little Girl Gone (A Logan Harper Thriller Book 1)
Little Girl Gone (A Logan Harper Thriller Book 1)

Review: After enjoying Brett Battles' "Becoming Quinn" last year, the author had a bit of a "halo effect" going into my reading this book featuring a new hero.

While a number of people have commented on the unbelievable attributes of Logan Harper, I saw no real difference between suspending belief in a novel and when I go to an action movie.

Admittedly the plot was a little opaque at times, occasionally dragged and stretched credulity regarding the personal commitment many of these charact... Read more

Mrs. Dalloway
Mrs. Dalloway

Review: Well, I can check this book off my 'to read' list. That's one of the best things I can say about it. One day in Mrs. Dalloway's life and those of the people who know her is achingly described, sometimes lovely and sometimes nonsensical. You would think if an author wanted to focus on one single day, she might want the reader to come away changed somehow by some significant message. There is nothing substantial in the story. It is lovely writing about nothing. Mrs. Dalloway is planning a pa... Read more

The Breakthrough Series (3-Book Set)
The Breakthrough Series (3-Book Set)

Review: Absolutely LOVED all three Breakthrough books - wish this 3-book deal was available back then - but then again they were worth it. Hurry and finish the next one - but then again, take your time and make it as good as the last 3 and I CAN'T WAIT to read it. Read more

All Your Perfects: A Novel
All Your Perfects: A Novel

Review: Wow... How does Colleen Hoover do it yall? Time after time she writes these ridiculously emotional novels that wreak havoc on my poor little heart, and All Your Perfects was no exception to that statement. This novel is a little darker than others that I've read from her, but it is so important and relevant to what so many people are struggling with in the world today. I don't want to give too much away and spoil it for you, so I won't dig too deeply.

I love the fact that Hoover has the a... Read more

Without Merit: A Novel
Without Merit: A Novel

Review: Without merit

Without merit was uniquely different. I had no idea where it was going to take me. I was really like “come on give me a clue.” I was told my many keep reading, and I was so glad I did. The Voss family is strange but what family isn’t.

I really felt for Merit. Her character was one I could relate to. She was struggling with everything in her day to day life. It took an outsider to have her really take a good look at herself. To help her see the bigger picture so to sp... Read more

A Gripping Crime Thriller (Lawson Raines, Book 1)

Review: Fast and furious! What a great 1st time around with Lawson Raines. If you want entertainment at it's finest you must read this book. I'm already hooked on Bradley Wright's Xander King, so here I go again with a new addiction; Lawson Raines. Just remember that I warned you!!!!!! Read more

In the Lake of the Woods
In the Lake of the Woods

Review: Apparently I'm the only one that thought "The Things They Carried" by this author was ridiculous. Well, because I bought "In the Lake of the Woods" at the same time, I had to read it. I was sometimes just as confused by this book as the previous one. There is no doubt Tim O'Brien is a talented writer, but he is so far "out there" I don't enjoy his writing. This book focuses on the atrocities at My Lai and the main character's participation in them. I believe my Viet Nam Marine Corps husband... Read more
