Never Have I Ever

2.5/5 stars Did I read the same book as everyone else? It seems I may be in the very small group that did not like this book.  It started out good. The premise is very intriguing, and I was curious to see how this popular game could ruin lives. I learned the Never Have I … More Never Have I Ever

The Girls in the Garden

3.5/5 stars This started really strong, but then I started losing interest. It begins with a young girl, Grace, found unconscious in a communal park. No one knows what happened to her. It then jumps back in time and follows Grace and the group of kids who live in flats surrounding the park in the … More The Girls in the Garden

Strange Secrets

**I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.** 3.5/5 stars This was truly a strange read! It was not something I would typically pick for myself. I’m not sure how I feel about it. It made me very uncomfortable, which I think was the point. This is a … More Strange Secrets

The Whisper Man

5/5 stars I know. Another 5/5 review. I promise I am not an easy reviewer! I just research books beforehand and trust people who have similar tastes as I do! “If you leave a door half open, soon you’ll hear the whispers spoken.”  This was a thrilling ride that I can only describe as being … More The Whisper Man

Watching You

While I don’t recall any explicit content being described, it may still be triggering to some. This was a thrilling page turner that reminded me of Someone We Know by Shari Lapena. This follows several characters that, at first … More Watching You

The First Mistake

4/5 stars This was a good book, but overall I felt uninspired by the book after reaching the ending. I lost sleep reading this in one sitting. It was fast paced and intriguing. There were multiple plot twists and while I sort of guessed a reveal, there were more twists that added another level to … More The First Mistake

Ask Again, Yes

5/5 stars This book has left me speechless. I thought I would be writing my longest review yet, but I cannot wrap my mind around how incredible this story is. What an outstanding book that fell into my lap at exactly the right time. This story is fast paced as it moved through 4 decades … More Ask Again, Yes

Taking an update break?

Wow, it’s been a long time since I’ve posted a musing for the day. I’ve been sticking to the book reviews, plus life has not been exciting enough to post about lately. I’ve been working a lot. So much so, that I am officially on hiatus from working on my novel and will hopefully pick … More Taking an update break?
