Review: The Knowing by Sharon Cameron

Why Did I Read? I loved The Forgetting and was ecstatic to learn that there would be a companion novel! My Thoughts: The Knowing takes place hundreds of years after the events of The Forgetting and there have been a lot of things happening since then! Right off the bat, you realize that this new society in New Canaan is something different and there are people who Know and they are different and special and never forget. It sort […]

Juliet’s mother died and she is coping by writing her letters at her grave but who […]

Review: The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzie Lee

Why Did I Read? I had heard a lot of early praise for it from some fellow bloggers! I was intrigued! My Thoughts: I really like historical fiction and this was such a fun filled romp with Monty and this friends!

Audiobook Mini Reviews: Timekeeper by Tara Sims and Out of the Easy by Ruta Sepetys

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 […]
