Blood Brothers and The Hate You Give

Blood Brothers by Nora Roberts Ya’ll I got hooked. I read all three of these books and QUICKLY! Very typical Nora Roberts romance, and everything comes in threes. The Hate You Give by Angie Thomas This book came to me by MyBookBox.com I was a little nervous, as it is outside of what I would…

The Stranger Beside Me and Defiant

The Stranger Beside Me by Anne Rule OH MY GOSH. I know the story, or at least I thought I did. Anne Rule ACTUALLY knew Ted Bundy, as in real life, before he was convicted. I liked hearing Annes side of the story, even if it is a tad biased. Defiant by Alvin Thomas Top…

American Street and Forensics

American Street by Ibi Zoboi Very interresting read for me. A young lady from Haiti travels to America with her Mom to start a new life. Only when they arrive, the Mom is detained while the daughter continues on. Her Aunt takes her in, but she has to learn the ways of the “streets” quickly,…

The Widows House and Mercy Burns

The Widows House by Carol Goodman A couple moves into a small house to act as caregivers while they try to build up their new life together…and things don’t go as planned. It was a good quick mystery/thriller. But not memorable for me. Sorry Mercy Burns by Keri Arthur She is a “draman”! I tried…

Eleventh Grave in Moonlight and The Shack

Yaya, I know. Weird combo. Eleventh Grave in Moonlight by Darynda Jones A continuation story of Charley Davidson private detective extraordinaire! I just LOVE this series. So much fun. Quick read. 🙂 The Shack by William P. Young Honestly…I read it so I could watch the movie. And I still haven’t watched the movie. Lots…

Ghost Soldiers and Service

Ghost Soldiers by Hampton Sides A World War II story rarely told. This book follows the story of those who were part of the Bataan Death March, and those who rescued the brave POWs. A HARD read, but a worthy one. Highly Recommended. Service by Marcus Lutrell I loved Marcus Lutrells book “Lone Survivor” so…

Girls in the Moon and Crossbones Yard

Girls in the Moon by Janet McNally Super sweet story, very girly but I made it through. 😉 A story about the many different viewpoints of the truth. Crossbones Yard by Kate Rhodes Murder mystery! I loved this book.

Interview with a Vampire and Carve the Mark

Interview with a Vampire by Anne Rice I should have read this a LONG time ago. I found the book for 10cents at the Thrift Store and figured I should probably read. BTW the book is better. Carve the Mark by Veronica Roth Ohhh I LOVED this book. So much fun. An epic sci-fi. One…

The Book Jumper and Only Daughter

The Book Jumper by Mechthild Glaser The Book Jumper was my first book out of MyBookBox.com Super fun read. I’d recommend it for any young female reader, 12+ probably. I loved every page. Only Daughter by Anna Snoekstra This book was also from MyBookBox.com I love mystery thrillers, specially ones that are from not-so-famous authors.

Outliers and Salem Falls

Outliers – Malcolm Gladwell This is the second Malcolm Gladwell book I have read, the first being Tipping Point. The general idea of Outliers is examining what makes successful people different. Not necessarily how they are different than us, but what circumstances they are from. Plus, the idea that great people are often the product…

Fahrenheit 451 and Written in Red

Ya’ll. I’m sorry. Change in blog plans. For a while I will only be posted the photo-link to the book and a quick blurb.  ❤ It's keep it simple or not post it at all. YIKES ! This weeks reads: Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury A classic that I somehow missed in my youth. This…
