Just Juliet

Just Juliet
Posted 17 January 2017 by Kim in Book Review / 0 Comments

My Review Just Juliet is one of those novels that just left me with mixed feelings.  It is a story that has promise and a cast of diverse and what could be interesting characters.  There were moments when I felt like the story was rich and engaging, and other moments that felt flat to me. […]

My Review Warrior and the Wanderer is the first book by Elizabeth Holcombe that I have read and, although it is a genre that I don’t read much of, I enjoyed it more than I had anticipated.  It is historical romance, with a nice bit of time travel, and it made for a really fun […]

My Review This is the second Talli Roland I’ve read and it was as much fun as the first!  Holly is an event planner who works for her parents’ company, throwing Christmas parties throughout the year.  She hates it and wants nothing more than to branch out and make it big.  When a British ex-pat […]

My Review The North Pole Prize is a sweet short story with all of the whimsy of the North Pole and the elves.  The blend of childhood favorites with a contemporary twist was so much fun!  Garrett is an engineer at the North Pole, a Scotsman with a troubled past who even makes an appearance in […]

My Review Married by Midnight is a cute Christmas novella with a surprise twist that totally changed the story!  This is a short read, but one that is funny and heart-warming and full of love. Kate is the main character, crazy in the last days of wedding planning before the big day.  It’s been a bit […]

My Review Ginger Krinkles was at times hilarious and at other times sad, but all in all, I liked it a whole lot more than I thought I was going to. Ginger Krinkles is the star of this book, a snarky holiday-hater that, at first, drove me nuts.  In the beginning, she came off as […]

My Review I was looking for a short Christmas read with a good plot and this was it, yet I still had some mixed reactions. Lottie definitely earns the title “Britain’s Worst Innkeeper,” although I don’t think that Aunt Kate would have won any awards in that area either.  When Aunt Kate is in an […]

My Review To me, the one thing that makes or breaks a good post-apocalyptic/dystopian novel is the connection to the world as we know it in the moment.  There has to be that thread of our own reality to truly bring the chilling possibilities home, to scare us with the potential for the utter destruction […]

My Review Son is the final book in the series and, as much as I enjoyed this series, this book left me with mixed feelings.  There were new characters and old, which led to both new story lines and resolutions to existing ones.  But some of the messages in this one struck me as a little […]

My Review This is the third book in The Giver series, this time centering around Matty from Gathering Blue.  We revisit Jonas and Gabe in this book, too, although their part of the story is not the focus.  This, too, is a new utopian/dystopian society, formed from the outcasts from other supposedly utopian societies. There is an […]
