Review: Alex, Approximately by Jenn Bennett

Why Did I Read? You’ve Got Mail is a favorite movie so I was all over this! My thoughts: I loved the set up of this book! Bailey is close friends with Alex — but they’ve never met. They only know each other through a film forum and emails and so when Bailey moves to stay with her dad (who lives in the same town as Alex), she figures this is perfect for scouting out this […]

Review: Shadow Run by AdriAnne Strickland and Michael Miller

Why Did I Read? Let’s just say I was looking forward to this book since I first heard it announced and marketed as Firefly meets Dune! I was so on board! My Thoughts: This was a really action packed and thrilling sci-fi ride! I can definitely see the parallels to Firefly and Dune. Our spaceship in question is the Kaitan and our main cast the crew of the Kaitan. I absolutely loved each member on board the Kaitan and all the crew relationships. Everyone is […]

Eric has been struggling a bit, especially […]

Review: And I Darken by Kiersten White

Why Did I Read? Vlad the Impaler story with a badass female lead? Historical fiction? I was so in. My Thoughts: I have really complicated feelings about this book. I really liked most parts of it but some parts really dragged and left me feeling underwhelmed. The book starts off with our main character Lada as a young child growing up — we see that from a young age she is already fierce, strong and determined. […]

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. […]
