The Awkward Path to Getting Lucky by Summer Heacock

5/5 stars!  Thank you TLC Book Tours for providing me with a copy in exchange for an honest review.

Any morning that starts with me in a backless gown and my bare ass on a  tissue-paper-covered exam table is not a good day.

I loved this book.  I flew through it in one sitting simultaneously laughing hysterically and drooling from hunger.  Broken lady bits, a close group of friends, and delicious cupcakes makes for the perfect recipe of this hilarious debut novel.

Broken Bay by Andrea Dunlop

4.5/5 stars.  Thank you Andrea for sending me an advance copy of your novella in exchange for an honest review.

I loved this novella!  Here’s the thing, I don’t read novellas often and when I do I don’t really enjoy them as I find the story to be undeveloped and not well written.  However, this novella had me hooked from page one and the writing kept me speeding through so I finished this 94 page mystery in an hour.  A story about a bachelorette party in a supposedly haunted house on a secluded island and the bride to be goes missing, yup this is a fun story for any mystery lover!

Stolen Songs by Samantha Armstrong

3.5 out of 5 stars!  Thank you Koru House Press for sending me a copy in exchange for an honest review.

From page one I was sucked into this world of drugs, parties, reckless parents and music.  As the story unfolds I found myself becoming more and more attached to Maddison and her siblings and her future with the cello.  I finished this story in a day and adored so much of it.  There were a few things I wasn’t big on, but in general for a debut novel this was such an enjoyable read!

The Last Summer by Brandy Bruce

3 our of 5 stars, thank you Brandy for sending me a copy of your book in exchange for an honest review!

This book was such a great summer read, coming in at just over 220 pages, I was able to finish this up while hanging out at the pool.  It was a really cute story and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it.  Romance, friendships, and Texas heat made this a quick easy read perfect for any contemporary romance fans!

Bring Her Home by David Bell

Thank you David Bell and Get Red PR for sending me a copy of Bring Her Home in exchange for an honest review.

3.5 stars out of 5 stars!(rounded to 4 on Goodreads since they don’t do half stars and I think it deserves it) I really enjoyed this book.  It reminded me why I love crime/mystery books so much and that need to keep reading and find out all the answers.  I finished this in one day, the shorter chapters made me feel like I was breezing through the read and the little cliff hanger at the end of most chapters kept me pushing forward.  I expected some of the outcomes of this book, but others came to me as a complete surprise.  Nothing like a good mystery to keep your nose in a book for a day!

Ink and Bone by Rachel Caine (Book 1 in The Great Library Series)

Thank you Berkley Publishing for sending me a copy of Ink and Bone in exchange for an honest review. (4/5 stars)

Originally I wanted to rate this book 3 or 3.5 stars.  It started off a bit confusing to me in terms of how things worked, the items, and the world. As the story went on though it quickly became a 4 star read.  And as the characters and world developed and more of the inner deceptions of the library were shown, I got hooked.

The truth was what the library wanted it to be.
