Book Review: Sapphire Blue by Kerstin Gier

Book Review: Sapphire Blue by Kerstin Gier

All throughout this book I thought it was so much fun and qualitatively great. Then halfway through the epilogue I thought, “Wait… what did happen here?” I was reading at such a high speed, desperate to have more more more that it almost didn’t occur to me that this book suffers from a massive case of middle book syndrome. Don’t get me wrong, I still enjoyed it a lot. But there is also a sense of disappointment. The problem here with the middle book syndrome is that, while things certainly did happen in this book and there were still time traveling adventures to the 18th century (and […]

Book Review: Ruby Red by Kerstin Gier

Book Review: Ruby Red by Kerstin Gier

I really enjoyed reading Ruby Red. It was entertaining, fun, rather unique… but ultimately? Too short. I wasn’t ready for the adventure to end. So maybe the biggest problem with Ruby Red is that I want to move on to the sequel right away. You know. If you can call that a problem. I love this concept. Time travel is carried in genes and uncontrolled by nature. So Gwen just randomly gets sucked into the past for a half hour and then goes back. I love it so much. This is actually my first time travel novel, though, so perhaps I’m easily impressed. But I […]

Book Review: The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith

Book Review: The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith

The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight is a charming, quick, light read for when you’re in that contemporary kind of mood. You can very easily read it in one sitting to cleanse the palate. Obviously, looking at the title, this book is really romance-centric. Oliver is so absolutely charming. The dialogue between him and Hadley is really pleasant and adorable. There were some super touching moments, and my heart melted just a bit at the end. And I mean, I read the whole thing picturing Oliver as this guy, adorable accent included. How can you go wrong? Julian Morris Overall there’s not much […]

Book Review: Just One Day by Gayle Forman

Book Review: Just One Day by Gayle Forman

This is my first adventure with Gayle Forman but I absolutely loved it and will be checking out her other books really, really soon. It’s just a beautiful literal and figurative story of finding yourself and finding love. It pulled at my heartstrings constantly, made me laugh, giggle, flail, and produce some tears. And this from one who usually doesn’t really do contemporary. Part 1: One Day The book starts off with Allyson and Willem’s one glorious and beautiful day in Paris. Now, being Dutch, but having lived in the US for 10 years (and just getting back from a visit this week) this book […]
