Book Review: Hand Me Down by Melanie Thorne

Book Review: Hand Me Down by Melanie Thorne

Adult Book Reviews 3 ★★★★

When I first perused this novel while looking through Dutton’s latest catalog I was very intrigued. Melanie did an excellent job at telling Liz’s story and really making you feel for her. She really make me loathe her stepfather and mother, resent her father, and worry for her sister. The whole time I was wondering if she’d ever find a happy ending. When others would have lost hope a long… Read more »

Book Review: Busted in Bollywood by Nicola Marsh & Giveaway

Book Review: Busted in Bollywood by Nicola Marsh & Giveaway

Adult Book Reviews 1 ★★★★

This book definitely drew me in with how unique the plot was. I’m not to familiar with the Indian culture and Nicola does an excellent job of presenting it to her readers without making it feel like a documentary or something. She shows the beauty and appeal of India, with a particular focus on their amazing food. You also learn a bit about their traditions, which ties into why the… Read more »

Book Review: Shadowlander by Theresa Meyers

Book Review: Shadowlander by Theresa Meyers

Adult Book Reviews 2 ★★★½

I went into this thinking it was a young adult title and boy was I wrong! Not that there was anything wrong with that, because I was pleasantly surprised. I think I’m just so used to reading YA, that as I was going through this novella, I was like “WTH! Is she allowed to write that?!”. Anyways, I really enjoyed the book. At first, it reminded me of A Wicked… Read more »

Book Review: Wedlocked by Bonnie Trachtenberg

Book Review: Wedlocked by Bonnie Trachtenberg

Adult Book Reviews 2 ★★★★

Wedlocked is Bonnie Trachtenberg’s debut novel and I have to say, it’s a great one! The cover is so witty and in-keeping with the story and after reading the summary, I knew I had to check this book out for myself. The story reminds me of a typical romantic comedy where the lead girl, Rebecca tries to navigate through her treacherous love life and discover just how strong she really… Read more »

Book Review: Heart of the Matter by Emily Giffin

Book Review: Heart of the Matter by Emily Giffin

Adult Book Reviews 0 ★★★½

I am a huge fan of Emily Giffin books and I’m to say that this book did not disappoint. I love how this story was told in two points of view, by Tessa & Valarie, as it adds great perspective to the story and how their lives unfold and converge. Honestly, I didn’t think that how they would be tied together would play out the way that it did, but… Read more »

Book Review: The Bride Quartet by Nora Roberts

Book Review: The Bride Quartet by Nora Roberts

Adult Book Reviews 7 ★★★★

Since this is a Quartet style book series and since I read them all one after the other, I decided to do a review of them together. Even though each book can stand out from the rest of the series, I thought it would be nice to compare and contrast each of them and then discuss my opinions of the series as a whole. The first book basically set the… Read more »

Book Review: Names My Sisters Call Me by Megan Crane

Book Review: Names My Sisters Call Me by Megan Crane

Adult Book Reviews 2 ★★★

Overall, I was very pleased with this book. It wasn’t a page-turner or an all-nighter, I’ll admit, but it was a good book. Throughout the whole book you get to see how Courtney evolves and realizes important aspects about herself and her life, also, how she comes to grips with the past and learns how to face the future. The relationship between her and her sisters can definitely be related… Read more »
