Triple Love Score by Brandi Megan Granett

Triple Love Score by Brandi Megan Granet..

Posted September 19, 2016 in A Novel Read / 0 Comments

I may not have been very visible online in recent months, but I have still been reading. I’ve been doing a lot of reading the books that I want to read and have been wanting to read for a while, rather than reading books for the sole purpose of reviewing. Every once in a while, a book comes along that checks both boxes – one that I’ve been asked to review, and that I am super excited about reading. Triple Love Score by Brandi Megan Granett was one of those books. As soon as I saw the cover, and those […]

8 Books That You Should Read

8 Books That You Should Read

Posted June 6, 2016 in A Novel Read / 7 Comments

One thing that most readers expect from a book blog seems to be book reviews. For me though, book reviews are actually one of the most difficult types of blog post to write, so I have a habit of either leaving them to the last minute or not sharing at all. I’ve also been on quite a roll with reading, and putting down my thoughts as soon as I finish a book tends to break up that rhythm. But I still want to shout from the rooftops how many awesome books I’ve been reading so that you can all go […]

Stars over Sunset Boulevard by Susan Meissner

Stars over Sunset Boulevard by Susan Mei..

Posted May 16, 2016 in A Novel Read / 0 Comments

It’s been a while since I’ve shared my thoughts on the books I’ve been reading, or blogged about anything to be honest. I’ve not been reading nearly as much as I did earlier in the year either, but a few recent reads have helped me regain speed there. One of those has been a book I finished up last week, Stars Over Sunset Boulevard. I hadn’t read anything by Susan Meissner before, I actually hadn’t heard of Susan Meissner before Stars Over Sunset Boulevard was pitched to me. Shame on me, right? I know now that Stars won’t be the […]

The Things We Keep by Sally Hepworth

The Things We Keep by Sally Hepworth

Posted February 26, 2016 in A Novel Read / 2 Comments

The Things We Keep was a story about love, loss and life, and reading it made me think about just how lucky I am. Anna Forster knows that she is going to forget everyone around her, she knows that she is going to say horrible things, forget how to tie her shoe laces or which door leads to the closet. She does the only thing that she can think of to protect her family and the ones she loves from the horrid disease she is suffering. At just thirty-eight years old, Anna must come to terms with the early stages of […]

Missing Pieces by Heather Gudenkauf

Missing Pieces by Heather Gudenkauf

Posted February 24, 2016 in A Novel Read / 0 Comments

Missing Pieces is the second of Heather Gudenkauf’s five novels that I have read (2014’s Little Mercies was the first), but I can confidently say that I have found a new favorite author! And Missing Pieces was even better than Little Mercies which, before reading, I wouldn’t have thought possible. From the moment I picked up Gudenkauf’s latest book, I knew I was going to have a hard time putting it down. Secrets and mystery drew me in, and the need to find the answers kept me turning the pages until the very end. There may have been a day that […]

Flight of Dreams by Ariel Lawhon

Flight of Dreams by Ariel Lawhon

Posted February 23, 2016 in A Novel Read / 2 Comments

It is obvious from both the novel itself and the author’s notes at the end of Flight of Dreams, that Ariel Lawhon took a great deal of time researching the Hindenburg tragedy and the Zeppelin program. Through this research, Lawhon chose a cast of real life people who would become the center of Flight of Dreams and her re-imagining of how events may have transpired before, after and during the cross-Atlantic journey. Flight of Dreams captured my attention from the  get-go, with the alternating perspectives of The Journalist, The American, The Navigator, The Stewardess and The Cabin Boy offering a […]
