2022 Book Review: The Orphan’s Tale

The Orphan’s Tale by Pam Jenoff A Historical Fiction, 2017 by Mira, 353 Pages  What I Didn’t Like: Insta love. It’s my least favorite trope and it definitely appeared in this one. You find one of the main characters risking everything for insta love which just doesn’t work for me.Flat characters. I felt like I... Continue Reading →

2022 Book Review: When I Was You

When I Was You by Amber Garza A Mystery/Thriller, 2020 by MIRA, 368 Pages  What I Didn’t Like: Errors. One grammatical that I noticed, one typographical that I noticed, and a continuity one that really bugged me. The way some characters treat depression as “crazy” really irked me. I suppose that was the point. Some twists were... Continue Reading →

2022 Book Review: I Invited Her In

I Invited Her In by Adele Parks A Mystery/Thriller, 2019 by MIRA, 384 Pages  What I Didn’t Like: Predictable. For me, at least. I’m actually planning on handing this off to someone else to see if it was the writing that was predictable or if it’s my intense amount of reading in this genre that... Continue Reading →

2022 Book Review: The Kiss Quotient

The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang A Romance, 2018 by Berkley, 323 Pages  What I Didn’t Like: Spicy. Honestly, I don’t actually have a problem with this, but it’s worth the content warning so you might be more forewarned than I was. I was not expecting the high levels of spice this one brought to... Continue Reading →

2022 Book Review: Beneath a Blanket of Snow

Beneath a Blanket of Snow by Arlene Lomazoff-Marron A Contemporary, Independently Published in 2020, 354 Pages  What I Didn’t Like: There’s at least one chapter that didn’t fit in the timeline. Without spoiling anything I’ll say there’s a character who is going to have surgery. Then we jump to another POV and it’s weeks later.... Continue Reading →

2022 Book Review: Sarah’s Key

Sarah’s Key by Tatiana De Rosnay A Historical Fiction, 2007 by St Martin’s Press, 294 Pages  What I Didn’t Like: Similar to a lot of other things out there. The WWII historical fiction, throwing in relationships in turmoil, possibly dealing with abortion … it’s all things I’ve read recently. Even setting a story in France,... Continue Reading →

2022 Book Review: Red Herring

Red Herring by Leonard DiGregorio A Mystery/Thriller, Independently Published in 2020, 277 Pages What I Didn’t Like: Grammatical errors. A few misspellings, some punctuation I’d change, and a missing quotation mark. Nothing huge, but taken together it could be distracting.Telling vs showing. I felt like I was watching the action unravel instead of experiencing it.... Continue Reading →

2022 Book Review: The Choices We Make

The Choices We Make by Teresa Grabs A Anthology, Independently Published in 2021, 239 Pages What I Didn’t Like: Lots of worlds I wanted to spend more time in! This, I suppose, is a good problem to have. Some stories fell flat or didn’t work for me. Of course when you have this many, that’s bound... Continue Reading →

2022 Book Review: Rapid Eye Movement

Rapid Eye Movement by Amanda Sheridan A Mystery/Thriller, Independently Published 2020, 315 Pages  What I Didn’t Like: Pacing. This one felt a little slow in some spots and fast in others, making it an uneven pace. Character confusion. The two main characters, Jennifer and Lucy, feel a lot alike. This made it difficult for me to... Continue Reading →
