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 Review: Venom by Fiona Paul

Book Review: Venom by Fiona Paul

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 […]

ARC Book Review: Blonde Ops by Charlotte Bennardo and Natalie Zaman

ARC Book Review: Blonde Ops by Charlotte Bennardo and Natalie Zam..

Book Reviews | September 7, 2014

Oh dear. Blonde Ops… where did we go wrong? To be fair, I didn’t have EXTREMELY high hopes for this as being like some kind of mindblowingly awesome adventure story, but I hoped for some fun, some intrigue, hopefully some lovely wanderlust-evoking passages about Rome, and maybe a cute romance. Sadly, I didn’t really get any of those […]

Book Reviews | August 27, 2014

The Vault of Dreamers instantly intrigued me with its premise, which basically promised me some mix of Big Brother and Inception. 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 […]

Book Review: Inferno by Dan Brown

Book Review: Inferno by Dan Brown

Book Reviews | July 19, 2013

*sigh* Inferno… There were good parts and there were bad parts. To be fair, Dan Brown delivers with another thrilling story that his true fans will love. However, it is not his best novel by any means. The most telling sign of that is that it took me about a month to finish reading this book. Now I […]

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 […]
