I really didn’t know much about Timekeeper going into it but oh I was so pleasantly surprised as I got swept up in this story! It ended up being my FIRST five star read of the year! I’m also so glad I listened to it on audio because the narration was so amazing! I seriously loved it. In Timekeeper we are in an alternate London where there are clock towers that regulate time — literally. If something happens […]

The Leaving by Tara Altebrando

Why Did I Read? I’m all for thrillers. I like the suspense and this sounded super intriguing: I mean, missing kids, missing memories… I was excited to read this! My Thoughts: This story is told in different POVs, some in the POV of some of the returned missing kids and one from the sister of the kid that didn’t return. I thought it was a really interesting concept. However… this one didn’t really work for me. […]

Magnolia Vickers has such a fiery personality and a take charge attitude — she knows what she wants and she will do what she […]

Review: Hold Me Like A Breath by Tiffany Schmidt

My Thoughts: I’m not going to lie, I was a little wary heading into this one. The majority of my friends on GR had rated this pretty low and I was skeptical. However, I think I enjoyed it more than most! The premise really drew me in — crime families dealing in illegal organ transplants and organ trafficking? I’m in! I thought the set up was really interesting because while these crime families are making a lot […]

Review: Unrivaled by Alyson Noel

Why Did I Read? This was pitched to me as “Gossip Girls with a mystery”. I was in! I really loved Gossip Girls back in the day! My Thoughts: I was totally sucked into this book right off the bat. It opens with Madison Brooks, the hottest celeb in town, getting taken. We then flash back in time to meet three characters who get hired to be club promoters — they each have their reasons for […]
