A Reckoning in Belvoir

A Reckoning in Belvoir
Posted 30 March 2011 by Kim in Book Review / 0 Comments

My Review This was a really interesting read, unlike anything I have read before.  The author instantly drew me into the time of the events, making me feel as if I were in the story itself.  Set in the time of the Civil War, the story follows the stories of the Randolph’s and the slaves […]

Husbands and Lovers

Husbands and Lovers
Posted 21 March 2011 by Kim in Book Review / 0 Comments

My Review Husbands and Lovers is the story of four main characters, set mainly against the backdrop of the 1970’s and 1980’s.  True life events were woven into the fictional story throughout the novel, which very much set the stage for the characters.  Being a child of the 1970’s and a teen of the 1980’s, I […]

Dating My Vibrator

Dating My Vibrator
Posted 16 March 2011 by Kim in Book Review / 2 Comments

My Review Despite the controversial title, Dating My Vibrator isn’t the smutty tale you would expect.  Instead, it is a collection of nine short stories about dating after a long marriage.  Some of the stories, some sad, some a little bit of both!  Tyrpak’s sense of humor with subjects and situations that I myself am […]

My Review Sarra Cannon has quickly become one of my favorite authors with her Peachville High Demons series.  Bitter Demons is the third book and the series, and my favorite thus far.  Cannon is brilliant at weaving suspense and intrigue in her stories.  She keeps you guessing throughout the story and the twists and turns […]

My Review I was engrossed in Glimmer from the moment I started it!  Nina Decker is an emergency room nurse with a potentially dangerous secret that she has kept for her entire life. After the fallout when werewolves let their existence be known, she is more determined than ever to keep her secret from being […]

The Fire Inside

The Fire Inside
Posted 11 March 2011 by Kim in Book Review / 0 Comments

My Review The Fire Inside is the first in a new series by Raymond Rose, Sidekicks.  This novel was a total departure from the kinds of fiction I normally read, very much like a comic book complete with larger than life superheroes and villians.  It was a very interesting and unique blend of the superhero/villian conflict genre […]

Twenty-Five Years Ago Today

Twenty-Five Years Ago Today
Posted 4 March 2011 by Kim in Book Review / 0 Comments

My Review Twenty-Five Years Ago Today is the debut adult novel from author Stacy Juba.  It has all the makings of a classically great murder mystery:  high drama, murder, mystery, family dysfunction, unexpected twists, and even a bit of romance.  Kris Langley is a woman tortured by guilt over what she perceives as her blame […]
