Wish You Were Here by Renee Carlino: An Emotional Journey

Wish You Were Here by Renee Carlino: An Emotional Journey

Reviews 2 ★★★★

I don’t know how to talk about this book without spoiling things (you really need to go in as blind as possible), so I’m afraid my review might be brief. Suffice it to say Carlino put me through an emotional wringer that I won’t soon forget! What Fed My Addiction: Charlotte getting her life together. Charlotte feels like a screw-up who just can’t seem to get life right—whether it’s work or romance or family … she just can’t seem to make everything work. Eventually, she comes to realize that a lot of her issue is just confidence, and I loved seeing her find herself and learn to take chances. The romance in this book is almost less about romance than it is about Charlotte coming to realize that she can make her way in the world—and finding a partner to do that with. Focus on family and friends. Charlotte’s relationship with her… Read more »

Deception So Deadly by Clara Kensie: Deceptive, Indeed!

Deception So Deadly by Clara Kensie: Deceptive, Indeed!

Reviews 6 ★★★★½

The title of this book does not lie. There were some surprises in this book that caught me totally off-guard (and a few that I guessed, but that’s par for the course). Many characters in the book are deceived by someone or other, but of course, I can’t tell you much more than that. In fact, this is a tough book to review without giving things away, so I’m going to have to be very generic in my review, and you’ll just have to trust me that you’ll want to read to find out where it all goes. What Fed My Addiction: A double life. I’m always sort of fascinated by books where a character has to live undercover, and that’s definitely the case here. Tessa and her entire family have spent years on the run. They rarely live somewhere for more than a few months and they bring almost nothing… Read more »

I’m Headed Off on Vacation!

Uncategorized 16

Hey, everybody! You may have noticed that I’ve been a little scarce lately. Things have been incredibly crazy around here. So, I’m headed off on vacation and I’ve decided to just go ahead and take the time off from blogging. I’ll be back on August 14th. Since I won’t be posting my normal Sunday Posts, keep an eye on my Twitter feed for blogoversaries and birthdays, giveaways and preorder deals; I’ll tweet them when I can!

July Wrap-Up Round-Up Link-Up

Monthly Wrap-Up Round-Up 4

It’s time for the July Wrap-Up Round-Up! This is the link-up for our July wrap-up posts. If you don’t already know about the Monthly Wrap-Up Round-Up, read the information below: Every month, at the end of the month, I’ll put up a monthly wrap-up link-up post where everyone can link up their month end posts. There are no specific requirements for what needs to be in your post, as long as you have a book blog and your wrap-up summarizes your month in some way.   Then, one week later, I’ll create a giveaway that encourages people to visit YOUR month end link-ups, giving entries for commenting and/or sharing.   Anyone can participate in the giveaway – you won’t have to actually link up in order to participate.   I also plan to turn it into a fun scavenger hunt type game by allowing Random.org to choose some of the posts… Read more »
