My Review When I was offered the chance to read the ARC of this by Entangled Publishing, I jumped at it!  I’m all about any book that features hockey at any level of the game.  And it is a book that yanked me in from the very first page. There is a lot to love […]

My Review All The Butterflies in the World picked up right at the same moment as the previous book ended.  John and Tess are face to face and it is clear that the Butterfly Effect is in play.  While I am fascinated with that theory, it almost made me a little sad to know that the […]

My Review This book was unlike anything I have read before, an interesting mix of the historical and the contemporary.  The characters were so different from one another, the contrast keeping the dynamic between them interesting and often funny.  Their interaction truly showed the difference 134 years can make in a society. John Bartley was […]

My Review Love and Other Unknown Variables is the debut novel by Shannon Lee Alexander and I loved it!  So much of YA fiction is told from the female point of view so I loved that this one was from the POV of a guy.  Charlie Hanson, the most adorable nerd on the face of the […]

My Review I just received this book in Friday afternoon’s mail and was finished by Saturday morning.  I just couldn’t put it down! Alix is a 17yo girl who goes to bed one night and wakes up the next morning to find that her world has changed irrevocably.  Her girlfriend Swanee unexpectedly died while running. […]

My Review I absolutely loved this book!  I loved the emotions it stirred.  I loved the characters.  I loved the 90s music references.  I loved the mystery and the intrigue.  I loved it all! Lainey’s character is one that many of us can relate to, I think.  She is grieving and sad and lost.  Nothing […]

My Review The Sword and Its Servant is the first installment of what is going to be a six-part series, all set in the world of the Grauwelt.  The Grauwelt is a world that is somewhere between our own and that of Hel.  It is full of creatures that are straight out of our nightmares, all […]

Cinderella’s Dress

Cinderella’s Dress

My Review When I received Cinderella’s Dress, I imagined a fairy tale,  WWII-style.  I assumed that the protagonist Kate was going to be a more modern-day Cinderella.  The blurb for it called Kate “the next keeper of the dress” but I guess I thought that was another way of creating a new kind of Cinderella in […]

My Review This is the second novella in the Under the Hood series.  I love that these books center around independent women who work in nontraditional jobs, doing for themselves AND other women.  It’s a great bit of female empowerment in a fun way. This time, the story focuses on Melody Swan, a woman who comes […]

My Review I really loved the first book in this series, Oracle of  Philadelphia, and I think I loved this one even more!  For once, I was grateful for my inability to sleep at night because it gave me that much more time to read.  I couldn’t put it down and was sad when it was […]
