Then She Was Gone: A Novel
Then She Was Gone: A Novel

Review: I purchased this book from @bookofthemonth to read with my bestie @mycornerforbooksand.  All opinions are my own. ????? Then She Was Gone by Lisa Jewell. Bizarre! Amazingly bizarre! 16 year old Ellie Mack goes missing one day on her way to study. After years and years of searching the closure that her family so desperately needed is anything but a normal missing person case. As the plots unfolded page after page I found it hard to set down. I needed to know more. I had to know why. Most of ... Read more

Tease (A Club Deep Story)
Tease (A Club Deep Story)

Review: The book was different it could’ve had more I think. Specially with the ending that could’ve been a little thing from her where they got married or something I don’t know it just needed something I’m not sure what. The sex scenes were OK but they weren’t as exciting as I thought they should be either. ? Read more

Until I Fall
Until I Fall

Review: I have to be honest, this book was painful to read. There was such an OVERWHELMING amount of typos, grammatical mistakes, and editing gaffes, that I don't know where to begin to detail them all.

This book read like a rough draft. Clearly, the author's beta team, editors, and proofreaders let her down in a very big way. Yes, I know that no book out there is perfect, no manuscript is without error. However, I highlighted 65+ mistakes in this book. And I have NO copy editing or proofreading ... Read more

Before I Go: A Book Club Recommendation!
Before I Go: A Book Club Recommendation!

Review: I found them to be quite satisfactory. I would have made them a couple of inches taller. But all in all they finished off my borders well and made everything look complete. They are strong and sturdy as well as hooked together. I was well pleased with them. This review is for my garden edging not for this book!!!!!!! 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

The Forty Rules of Love: A Novel of Rumi
The Forty Rules of Love: A Novel of Rumi

Review: The forty rules introduced are timeless and universal in their application. I learned about spirituality, human relations development, and Sufism. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in spirituality, religion, and the topic of 'love'. Read more

Parable of the Talents (Earthseed)
Parable of the Talents (Earthseed)

Review: The book is set in the post-SHTF world, action taking place in the Pacific Northwest/Northern California. It describes United States in a such a way that Germany leading up to the Second World War comes to mind. Violence, poverty, unemployment, inflation and a general sense of despair pervades the world of this book. Simple existence and the sense of humanity is not taken for granted, as characters in this book are forced to fight for their place under the sun.

Protagonist of this novel i... Read more

The Story of Arthur Truluv: A Novel
The Story of Arthur Truluv: A Novel

Review: The cover of this book made me think of the movie "Up!" which is why I requested it. I find stories that capture the relationship between young people and older people enchanting. Arthur is not a grumpy old man, though he is lonely. He visits the cemetery every day to share lunch with his deceased wife and one day meets a young teen named Maddie who is also starved for connection with people. Arthur reaches out to her and without hesitation invites her into his sphere. She is doubtful of his fri... Read more

All We Ever Wanted: A Novel
All We Ever Wanted: A Novel

Review: Beautifully written, this is women’s fiction at its best. Ms. Griffin weaves a story of wealth and privilege, and how it can affect so many lives. The story takes place in Nashville where one family is surrounded by wealth and all its trappings, and one family lives simply. They are brought together when their teenage children become involved with each other. Although mostly told from Nina’s perspective as the wife and mother of the privileged, she did not grow up with money and does not lik... Read more
