Broken Bay by Andrea Dunlop *Review*

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!

The Summer that Melted Everything by Tiffany McDaniel *Review*

Thank you to Tiffany McDaniel for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

A foolish mistake, it is, to expect the beast, because sometimes, sometimes, it is the flower’s turn to own the name.

Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher *Review*

“everything affects everything”

This was a quick read, and easy in the sense that it was a fast read but not so easy emotionally.

The message in this is good though, that you never know what someone is going through and even the smallest act can spiral into undoing someone, so always watch what you say or do.

Maybe in Another Life by Taylor Jenkins Reid *Review*

“What if”  What if I chose this decision that night? What if I hadn’t done this?  Our lives take the paths they do based on the decisions we make, so what if we had decided differently?  That is exactly what this 5 star read is all about and that no matter what choices we do make, ultimately our lives come together as they should, maybe a bit differently had we gone down certain paths, but it will always work out in the end.

A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman *Review*

One of my favorite reads of the year so far!!! 5 WHOLE STARS!!!  Let me just wipe some tears real quick…Gah who am I kidding it’s more like a flood of tears! This book was so precious I don’t even have words. I started off wanting to dislike Ove, I thought he was sort of funny yet depressing and that was it. Then I grew to love him, and I mean just completely adore him. I think that’s one of the main points of the book. Loving someone and connecting with someone you couldn’t have ever predicted.
