ARC Book Review: I’m Glad I Did by Cynthia Weil

ARC Book Review: I’m Glad I Did by Cynthia Weil

Book Reviews | January 2, 2015

I’m Glad I Did is a book that probably wouldn’t be on my radar at all and that I wouldn’t be likely to pick up if it wasn’t at BEA in 2014. But I’m glad it was, because this historical fiction about the music industry is wonderfully written and authentic. Ultimately, I did want a little more from […]

Book Reviews | December 8, 2014

Since reading and loving The Art of Lainey by Paula Stokes earlier this year, I was convinced I had to try her previous books under her pen name, Fiona Paul, as well! Venom became our November book club pick and for the most part, I liked it, though it had obvious signs of being the first in a […]

The result is a really intriguing thriller with some awesome science fiction aspects. However, with a confusing romance and cut-off ending putting me on the hook for a series, it wasn’t quite the total package. The premise […]

ARC Book Review: Period 8 by Chris Crutcher

ARC Book Review: Period 8 by Chris Crutcher

Book Reviews | March 31, 2013

Period 8… what are you? Full disclosure: if I hadn’t received an ARC of this, I probably wouldn’t have picked it up. I’m not a big contemporary person, and this isn’t contemporary romance either – which is what I normally pick up from the genre. So the fact that it absorbed me like it did and made me […]
