Thank you to both Atria Books who sent me a copy to review as well as TLC Book Tours who also sent me a copy to feature! I love Renee Carlino so I was so so excited to get my hands on her newest book, unfortunately this one was not for me and it really bummed me out. I ended up giving this 2 stars.
Huge thank you to Random House for sending me a copy of Uprooted in exchange for an honest review. This has been on my TBR for years and I am so glad I finally got to it, I loved it! This book is whimsical and beautiful, breathing new life into an old classic. It felt entirely like its own story while having small traces of being a retelling. Uprooted read like a fairytale mixing in action, adventure, romance, and danger, all flowing perfectly to create a master piece. I give this 4.5 stars!!
“There was a song in this forest, too, but it was a savage song, whispering of madness and tearing and rage.”
Thank you so much Atria Books for sending my a copy of Heart Land in exchange for an honest review! I enjoyed this one so much it was a quick, easy, light hearted read perfect for summer! Full of southern charm and big NYC dreams and a dash of romance I give this 3.5 stars.
From the second I started reading this book I had a southern twang voice in my head narrating as I read. I loved that this book sucked me in to the Dust Bowl era and Midwestern vibe. Slow moving but filled with hope and forgiveness I gave this book 3.5 stars.
Thank you so much Atria Books for sending me a copy of Colleen Hoover’s newest book, All Your Perfects in exchange for an honest review! I won’t lie when I say I squealed so loud when I opened this bit of mail. I love Colleen Hoover and was so excited to see her newest book, which just came out July 17th, waiting for me to read. I wasted no time and cracked this baby open and dove in and as per usual I fell in love. I give this 4.5 stars and hot dang I will be swooning over Graham for awhile.

Thank you so much TLC Book Tours for sending me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review and for having me on this book tour! An odd story with bits of dark humor thrown in, a mystery and an eccentric unreliable narrator built up this unique gothic fiction. As a debut novel this was really well done and I’m excited to see what is next for Michael. I gave this 3.5 stars!

I cannot thank Atria Books enough for sending me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review and for having me on this book tour! I won’t lie when I say I was scared to start this book. It is one of my most anticipated reads of 2018 and I LOVED Beartown. So like any true sequel I worried it wouldn’t be as good as the first. I also was scared of all the emotions Backman was about to put me through. But I did it, I just dove in and I fell in love all over again, with his writing, these characters, and this story. From chapter one I was already tearing up, Backman’s writing is by far some of the best writing I’ve ever read and Us Against You is no different, it is Backman at his best. I give this 5 whole stars.
