What Blooms From Dust by James Markert *Review+Book Tour*

Thank you so much TLC Book Tours for sending me copy of this book and for having me on this book tour!

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.

The Garden of Blue Roses by Michael Barsa *Review+Book Tour+Giveaway*

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!

Us Against You by Fredrik Backman *Review+Book Tour*

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.

“The stupidest little thing we do can alter the future for so many people.  That means everything you ever did, you almost didn’t do.”
