The Fifth Petal

The Fifth Petal

My Review The Fifth Petal is the second book in The Lace Reader series.  I really enjoyed the first book, especially with its setting of Salem and the witch history.  This novel is set several years into the future and it features some new characters along with some from the first book. Callie is at the […]

The Lace Reader

The Lace Reader

My Review I got the ARC of The Fifth Petal (review coming soon) from NetGalley, not realizing that it was the second novel in the series.  So I purchased The Lace Reader.  Being fascinated with all things Salem and its witchcraft history, I was really interested to see how it played out in this novel.  And I absolutely […]

Cherry Blossom Cappuccino

Cherry Blossom Cappuccino

My Review Cherry Blossom Cappuccino is the fourth novella in the Cupid’s Coffeshop series and may be my favorite so far.  This one focuses on Ruby and Jefferson, both of them long lost loves from fifty years earlier.  This is the epitome of “second chance” romance and I loved it! They met and fell in love in […]

Dive

Dive

My Review Dive is a truly poignant book about love and loss, friendship and family.  The story revolves around Virginia, a 15yo girl who is going through one of the worst times of her life.  And because personal tragedy is never enough, just about everything around her seems to be rising against her. Isn’t that […]

Juniors

Juniors

My Review I loved everything about this book!  The setting, the story line, the characters… all of it! I originally picked this book because I have a soft spot for all things Hawaiian.  I lived there 18 years ago and I am about to move back, so I love to read about the place I […]

Ink and Bone

Ink and Bone

My Review Ink and Bone is the first book in the new Great Library series and it is such an interesting premise, rewriting history in a way that is absolutely intense for anyone who truly loves the written word. In this world, knowledge, or too much of it, is seen as almost a disease, the foundation of ruin […]

Specials

Specials

My Review I have such mixed emotions about this book.  It was originally supposed to be the final book in a trilogy, although there is now a fourth book in which Tally appears as a non-central character.  So, even though this ended up not being the final book, it is really the final book in […]

World After

World After

My Review I love that this series uses angels less as a symbol of traditional religious mythology, but more as supernatural creatures with their own motivations.  And in this book, we get a lot of answers to questions from the first book, but also have all kinds of new questions.  It isn’t quite as action-packed […]

Gathering Frost

Gathering Frost

My Review Gathering Frost is the first novel in Kaitlyn Davis’ new series, Once Upon a Curse.  It tells the story of Jade, once a happy little girl living in New York Ciry until an earthquake shakes her world in unimaginable ways. It wasn’t just her city that was destroyed, but the way of life all […]

Warrior and the Wanderer

Warrior and the Wanderer

My Review Warrior and the Wanderer is the first book by Elizabeth Holcombe that I have read and, although it is a genre that I don’t read much of, I enjoyed it more than I had anticipated.  It is historical romance, with a nice bit of time travel, and it made for a really fun […]
