Aaru - Review

Aaru - Review
Wow... Just finished Aaru by David Meredith. I've had it in my TBR pile for quite a while, as it got lost in a storm of review requests. Sitting around an airport for hours had me flipping through my Kindle files, and I ran across this story, and quickly shuffled it to the top of my (now written) list! And now that book 2 is out... I am trying to figure out how to shuffle some more...

Pieces of Me - Review

Pieces of Me - Review

Another debut novel. YA/teen lit, not exactly romance, but it has a sweet little love story built into it.

This wasn't an easy read for me. I kind of knew it wouldn't be when Carrigan emailed me about reviewing PIECES OF ME. My family has front row seats to the unpleasant faces of mental health problems, and this stirred some painful memories.

The Window - Review

The Window - Review
Drama. Mystery. School. Identical twins. Secrets. Murder. All of that and, more star in The Window by Amelia Brunskill. I would classify this as a murder mystery/suspense. Allow me to explain why.

Fateful Decisions - Review

Fateful Decisions - Review
Every so often, a book slides across my desk with a concept that utterly fascinates me. Trevor D'Silva's Fateful Decisions is one of those books. The idea of a book following one person through the inevitable consequences of decisions both large and small... That alone pulled me in. I read the sample to get a feel for the author's writing style, and paused - but the concept, and the opening chapters' scenes won the day.
