Book Review: When I Am Through with You, by Stephanie Kuehn
While a bit far-fetched, When I Am Through with You  is exciting and compelling. A teenager, Ben, tells the story from his prison cell and it is apparent very early that he has killed his girlfriend, Rose. While this may seem like a confessional, it is real...

Book Review: Anna and the Swallow Man by Gavriel Savit
Historical fiction is my favorite genre, and I've read many World War II books.  I am surprised to say that Anna and the Swallow Man  isn't going to be on my list of favorites. Seven-year-old Anna is abandoned in Krakow when the Germans take her father. She...

Book Review: Take the Key and Lock Her Up by Ally Carter
Take the Key and Lock Her Up  is the third book in the Embassy Row  series. Now these books aren't really serious, but they are fun and I enjoyed this new installment. Grace is in hiding and soon on the run again, as we catch up with her.  She knows she and...

Book Review: Behind Closed Doors by B. A. Paris
Oh my goodness.   Behind Closed Doors  wound me so tight, I had to take breaks during my reading (and still read it in one day.) Jack and Grace have the perfect marriage, the perfect life.  They live in a beautiful house, Grace doesn't have to work outside ...

Book Review: Dreamland Burning by Jennifer Latham
Dreamland Burning is a powerful book.  I know I'm not the first to say that, but it's the truth.  Gut wrenching. Dreamland Burning uses dual narration effectively.  Rowan narrates from the present, as human bones are found in the floor of what used to be th...

Book Review: Local Girl Missing by Claire Douglas @Dougieclaire
Local Girl Missing  is told with a dual narration of both time and place and will leave you guessing until the very end. Everything from the past comes back to Frankie when remains are found that are believed to be those of her best friend, Sophie, who disa...

Book Review: A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas
I really enjoy the characterizations and the original world building that Maas has created in A Court of Mist and Fury . The story of Feyre, Tamlin, and Rhysand just gets more complex as we continue the adventures they began in A Court of Thorns and Roses. ...
