The New Neighbors by Simon Lelic

Hmm..... The New Neighbors was an interesting psychological thriller, told in 2 parts and 2 POVs. The first half of the novel is basically Jack and Syd writing their version of what "happened" (aka the MYSTERY), each telling their own side of the story. The second half is what results from that. I'm not saying... Continue Reading →

Wildcard by Marie Lu

So. The review. Is late, I know. In my defense, this one was a hard one to rate for me. I felt like there were a lot of issues, including a plot that made me feel I was on the bottom of the pendulum of a yo-yo. A lot of this book left me feeling... Continue Reading →

Nyxia Unleashed by Scott Reintgen

I know. This review is coming super late and I am here-to-fore a self proclaimed slacker and procrastinator. This series continues to amaze me at how incredible it is. With the diverse cast of characters, to the character development, to the plot development, to the world building, to the twists and turns, I am left... Continue Reading →

Miss Wilton’s Waltz by Josie S. Kilpack

I die. Josie got me again. What did I do to deserve such goodness from a writer? I'm sure I don't know. Granted. Lord Fenton's Folly is and will probably always remain my favorite novel by Josie. Miss Wilton's Waltz is a continuation of the story from The Vicar's Daughter, from Cassie's fiercely independent, yet... Continue Reading →

Fatal Throne by Candace Fleming

There is something truly intriguing about the Tudor era of history. Particularly Henry VIII's legion of wives. LBR: the ONLY reason we remember Henry VIII is because of his wives. Not because he was a good King. And not even for being the father to Queen Mary or Queen Elizabeth I. I love that this... Continue Reading →

Markswoman by Rati Mehrotra

Markswoman. I'm not sure how to even phrase what I am feeling right now. I picked this book up numerous times and then would put it down shortly afterwards. It wasn't truly remarkable or groundbreaking. The story was an interesting premise, for a certainty. However, it just lacked that special "something" that made me unable... Continue Reading →
