A Thousand Pieces of You

My Review You remember how your parents always told you not to judge a book by it’s cover?  I didn’t listen and I am glad I didn’t.  I realize I am late to the game in reading this, but just reading the blurb told me that I wanted to wait until all three books were […]

My Review Diabolic is the first in a new series of the same name by author S.J. Kincaid.  The book is science fiction in every sense of the world.  It takes place in the distant future that in no way resembles are own.  The power structure is an Empire and it is based on a sun […]

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 Love and First Sight is the first I’ve read by author Josh Sundquist.  I read it in less than a day because I just couldn’t put it down.  It is a gripping story with fabulous characters and an even ore fabulous story. So much of YA fiction focuses on girls so I was […]

My Review Dive is a truly poignant book about love and loss, friendship and family.  The story revolves around Virginia, a 15yo girl who is going through one of the worst times of her life.  And because personal tragedy is never enough, just about everything around her seems to be rising against her. Isn’t that […]

My Review I loved everything about this book!  The setting, the story line, the characters… all of it! I originally picked this book because I have a soft spot for all things Hawaiian.  I lived there 18 years ago and I am about to move back, so I love to read about the place I […]

My Review I truly enjoy this series!  I loved The Winter People and I love this sequel just as much!  The author creates characters that are so complex and so realistic.  Even as dark as the story is, it is beautiful with its weaving of our own reality and the dark reality of the Fae world. […]

My Review I’m not going to lie… half the reason I requested this galley from NetGalley was because of the location of the story.  It takes place in the Monterey Bay area, one of my former stomping ground in my former soldier life.  I love the area and I was happy to read a book […]
