Atlantia

Atlantia
Posted 29 March 2017 by Kim in Book Review / 0 Comments

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 […]

My Review Cafe Au Lait is the 5th novella in the Cupid’s Coffeeshop series.  This one centered around Kennedy and the literal boy next door, Alex.  Alex also happened to be the younger brother of one of Kennedy’s best friends, which added a nice little bit of awkwardness to the story. All of these novels center around […]

My Review This book is a collection of two novellas, All I Want for Christmas and First Impressions.  Both of these are previously released novellas that had been packaged with other holiday bundles by the author.

My Review This is a book that I have read and reread several times.  My mother, who recently passed away, taught this book for years as a high school English teacher and it was her favorite novel.  So when the publishers sponsored a read-along of the novel, I took part with a close friend who was […]

My Review I have such mixed opinions on this last book in the Delirium series.  I have enjoyed the series, but the pacing and story in this one seemed to stall a little bit.  And the ending… I just don’t know how I feel about it! I liked the back and forth POVs between Lena and Hana. […]

My Review I love Nora Roberts and I have loved this series.  The characters are rich and interesting.  The story line was engrossing, the epic battle between good and evil that has been going on for centuries.  But this last book disappointedd me a bit, which is not something I expected. The story of the […]

My Review I love all things southern gothic, NOLA, voodoo, and so on, so I was excited to read Sweet Unrest.  It had all of those things and more.  And yet I still had some mixed opinions about the story. Lucy and her family have moved from Chicago to an historical plantation outstide of New Orleans. […]

Cinderella’s Dress

Cinderella’s Dress
Posted 2 June 2014 by Kim in Book Review / 0 Comments

My Review When I received Cinderella’s Dress, I imagined a fairy tale,  WWII-style.  I assumed that the protagonist Kate was going to be a more modern-day Cinderella.  The blurb for it called Kate “the next keeper of the dress” but I guess I thought that was another way of creating a new kind of Cinderella in […]
