I just wanted to touch base with people. Normally, you wouldn’t hear much from me other than book reviews and recommendations... the occasional promotional post. 2020 so far kind of defies description. It’s been horrifying in many ways, frightening, overwhelming, and challenging. I have continued to review and post for a few reasons and I… Continue reading Reviewing In 2020

Clueless Cabot by André D. Michaels Facts: M/M contemporary romance, best friends to lovers, clumsy confusion!

Why do I review books: I review books for a few reasons. The first is that it's a way to get new titles without buying them. Don't get me wrong, I will always buy books when I'm able to. I use the Library a lot and often put in requests for the Library to purchases… Continue reading How Do I Review A Book!

What if you’re so busy pretending to be someone you’re not that you miss out on the person who would have liked you for who you really are? Dylan is a bit clumsy,… Continue reading Quick Reviews: August 2019

Honestly, there's more to it than that. When I was four years old, I went into a book store with my parents. I wanted a… Continue reading Why Do I Review Books?
Overthrow by Caleb Crain: I really struggled with this book. I'm probably not the appropriate audience for it. I found the start to be really interesting and I was drawn in but I got a bit lost in the politics of it all. I also found that I couldn't really stay with any of the characters… Continue reading QUICK REVIEWS: July 2019
The Ghosts Between Us by Brigham Vaughn (Book 1 of the West Hills Series): This is one of those books I stumbled across and can't remember who recommended it to me. So, if you did...thank you. I wasn't certain at first that I would like this book. It's unusual subject matter from the first few… Continue reading QUICK REVIEWS: June 2019
Sometimes I manage to fit in books that I just want to read rather than ones that I have been provided by a publisher. (Not that I'm complaining!) I think I will include some of my short reviews in a monthly post! Shadows You Left by Taylor Brooke & Jude Sierra: I came… Continue reading QUICK REVIEWS: May 2019
