The Infinity of You & Me

The Infinity of You & Me
Posted 12 April 2017 by Kim in Book Review / 0 Comments

My Review The Infinty of You & Me, a collaboration between authors Julianna Baggott and Quinn Dalton, is a fascinating take on multiverse theory.  Every decision made creates a new parallel universe.  And for Alicia, every single decision is a paralyzing moment, no matter how seemingly insignificant the choice.  Her entire life has been plagued […]

Don’t Kiss the Messenger

Don’t Kiss the Messenger
Posted 10 April 2017 by Kim in Book Review / 0 Comments

My Review I loved everything about Don’t Kiss the Messenger!  For me, this story was very much driven by the varied cast of characters.  I loved that they weren’t cast as ideals, but with the flaws and hangups that we all can relate to. CeCe Edmonds was in a devasting crash that left her scarred in […]

The Handmaid’s Tale

My Review This book… there are no words for how much Atwood’s words affected me.  The book was originally published when I was about 16, but I didn’t read it.  In some ways, I regret that because I think it would have been interesting to compare the two experiences, 30 years apart.  Kim at 16 […]

My Review To say that Jaybird was an emotional read would be an understatement!  There were parts of it that just made me want to jump into my Kindle and slap the sense into some of the characters.  Other parts reduced me to ugly tears.  And there were some parts that had me laughing out loud […]

Ten Thousand Skies Above You

Ten Thousand Skies Above You

My Review I absolutely loved the first novel in this series, A Thousand Pieces of You, and this book was just as good.  The story is woven throughout the multiverse as Marguerite fights to save both Paul and Theo.  And like the first book, this one makes you think about life, choices, and their unforeseen ramifications. […]

Atlantia

My Review Atlantia is a standalone novel by the author of the Matched series, which I loved.  This book, however, left me with mixed feelings.  The premise was amazing, but I just felt disconnected and I can’t quite figure out why. The novel takes place in a dystopian world split between the Above and the Below, the […]

Snowbirds

My Review I grew up in Amish country in Northern New York, an area of both strict ordnungs more liberal Mennonites, so the topic of this book intrigued me the moment I read the back.  The story is mainly set in Pinecraft, a community in Florida that consists of both Amish and Mennonite residents.  “Snowbirds” are […]

My Review Defensive Zone is the 10th full-length novel in the Portland Storm series, a series that has created an immense fan base of romance lovers and hockey fans! This book focuses on Cody “Harry” Williams, a defenseman for the Portland Storm, and Dani Weber, the impetuous daughter of one of the coaches.  Dani has harbored a […]

The Bone Witch

The Bone Witch
Posted 20 March 2017 by Kim in Book Review / 0 Comments

My Review The Bone Witch is a beautiful book, telling the story of Tea as she discovers that she is an asha, one with very rare abilities.  The writing is lyrical and descriptive, allowing you to see the world through Tea’s eyes.  It is written in two alternating points of view and the voices are very […]

The Country of Ice Cream Star
Posted 13 March 2017 by Kim in Book Review / 0 Comments

My Review The Country of Ice Cream Star came to me almost by accident.  The library on post hosted an event around Valentine’s Day called Blind Date with a Book.  I chose one based on nothing more than a genre and a vague blurb.  And it was unlike anything I’ve ever read. It is a […]
