I will say I wasn’t sure about this book at first since it took me a while to really get into it, but by the end I was so invested in these characters that my emotions were all over the place. I rate this beautifully touching coming of age romance 4 out of 5 stars!
Is that Cinderella’s castle?! Why yes, yes it is. I recently went on a trip to Disney and the only book I brought along, to be read on the flights only cause um.. Disney World, was Batman Nightwalker by Marie Lu the second in the DC Icons series. I was so excited to get this book when it came out that it was a wonder I waited until my trip to read it. Batman is my ALL time favorite super hero. I have always loved the comics, shows, and movies. I love all the villains and heros that make up the city of Gotham. That is why it really saddens me to say I was completely underwhelmed by this book and only rate it 3 stars. Quite honestly I think its only that high just for the sole reason that this is a Batman book and I didn’t have the heart to rate it lower.
Do we ever truly know the people we are closest too? Best Friends Forever explores the haunting realities of the deception and lies of those closest to us all while keeping the reader guessing until the very end, “who dun it?” A quick read because you won’t want to put it down, I rate this thriller 4 stars!
The Chalk Man is my first read of the year and I am so glad it was! An easy 5 stars. This fast paced mystery hooked me from chapter one and kept me guessing until the very last page. As much as this is a mystery it also reminds us that all of our choices and decisions have consequences. What we choose to do and to tell others has just as much impact on our lives as what choose not to do or tell. A very important lesson wrapped up in a creepy, page turning, mystery.
