Thank you so much Harlequin Books and 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! Debra Webb’s newest mystery had me hooked from page one, reading quickly along with the twists and turns. Fast paced, dark, and creepy I rate this 4 out of 5 stars!
Thank you so much Berkley Publishing for sending me The French Girl in exchange for an honest review! Set ten years after the disappearance of a girl a group of friends met on a trip they took, the case comes back to life and unfolds throughout the book with various twists and turns. While the writing was well done, especially for a debut author, the story was very slow and for the most part a bit boring. I finished this book feeling just ok about it and ended up giving it 3 out of 5 stars.
We have made it!!! The last book in this epic series and was it a journey or what?! Not to mention just the journey in length, 2,176 pages later, nice. Now I say “we” because I like to think by the third book in a series you haven’t looked up reviews before reading it and only see them after you have finished. But if you haven’t finished the series yet, what are you waiting for? This series is so so good! I gave this last book 4/5 stars and I will hold this series close to my heart for a while I am sure.
Diving back into this world with the longest book in the series. Holy moly 777 pages, wowie. I don’t have too much to review for this one as its the second in the series and I think it suffers a bit from middle book syndrome or whatever you may want to call it. I rated this book 3.5/5 stars!
The Lucky Ones by Tiffany Reisz is weird in a way that makes you unable to look away, it draws you in and before you know it you’ve devoured this dark tale in one sitting. With definite “Flowers in the Attic” vibes this book will grab you from page one and make you question what is right and what is wrong all the way until the very end. I rate this unique story 3.5/5 stars!
I have always been a bit hesitant to get into an epic fantasy, whether its because the books are so big, the story a little too involved, who knows. But I finally picked up The Final Empire, book one in the Mistborn series, and gave it a go and by golly I am so happy I am finally reading this series. Long and a bit slow at times, the writing and world more than make up for any slow moments, and the characters are all simply amazing. 4.5 stars from me!
This book, wow, I finished over a week ago and yet I couldn’t get myself to write a review right away. It still brings tears to my eyes and tugs on my heartstrings. I almost don’t know how to review this because any review I write will be insufficient. This story is powerful, emotional, and important. Characters written only the way Backman can write them, a story line that draws you in slowly and impacts you for long after, and an author that is nothing short of inspiring. Another favorite book has been added to my shelf, 5 whole beautiful stars.
