The Sheikh’s Tempting Nanny by Leslie North

The Sheikh’s Tempting ..

Leslie North is a favorite of mine for when I need a quick read to settle my mind. The Sheikh’s Tempting Nanny was no exception to this rule. Sarah and Imran are both likable characters that make you want to know what they’re going to do next. Jamila and Hasan are hilarious, as are Ziad […]

Go the Distance by Jen Calonita

Go the Distance by Jen Calon..

I am using a modified version of the CAWPILE rating system to do my review. If you’re curious about the CAWPILE system, check out this video by Book Roast! I’m going to be perfectly honest here – I’ve never watched Disney’s Hercules. Everything I know about it is from playing the first Kingdom Hearts game. […]

The Grace Year by Kim Ligget

The Grace Year by Kim Ligget

I’ve been meaning to read The Grace Year for quite a while now. I’d tried for it on NetGalley but had been declined. No surprise there. But then, there just seemed to always be other books I wanted to buy or check out of the library. So a couple weeks ago, I bit the bullet […]

What We Devour by Linsey Miller

What We Devour by Linsey Mil..

CW: Death Before I start, allow me to thank NetGalley and Sourcebooks Fire for the opportunity to read and review this book. I wasn’t expecting I would get approved for this one, but I was pleasantly surprised when I was. Now… on to the review. The Characters So we all know that one of the […]

The Nature of Witches by Rachel Griffin

The Nature of Witches by Rac..

Content Warning: Death When I first requested to be allowed to read The Nature of Witches, I wasn’t sure what to expect. I’ve long been a fan of books that have magic in them, and if they tie that magic to witches, I’m especially intrigued. So, I was super happy to be given the chance […]

Protecting the Single Mother by Leslie North

Protecting the Single Mother..

Let me start by saying I don’t normally go for romance books – as in, if the primary genre is romance, I tend to stay away. But… I admit, coming from a military family and having military friends, I am a sucker for military/ex-military books, so I gave this one a shot. I’m so glad […]

Violet City by Page Morgan

Violet City by Page Morgan

I wasn’t sure what to expect when I started this book. I’d read the description, but still didn’t know exactly what to expect. Violet City is an alien invasion story and a romance all in one. You’d think the combination wouldn’t work, but it does, it really does. I loved the characters – well, the […]

The Maidens by Alex Michaelides

The Maidens by Alex Michaeli..

CW: Animal death, death, blood, religion, drugging, drugs, alcohol, abuse, sexual abuse Alex Michaelides has done it again. He had the best-selling debut in 2019 with The Silent Patient and he’s got another winner with The Maidens.  I love a good mystery/thriller/suspense book. The less predictable the better. Trust me when I say that The […]

Tales from the Hinterland by Melissa Albert

Tales from the Hinterland by..

CW: Violence, Death Tales from the Hinterland is the book of fairy tales that is featured in The Hazel Wood and The Night Country. Weirdly enough, I could never seem to get into either The Hazel Wood or The Night Country. Perhaps I just needed to read the fairy tales the fueled the story. I […]
