The Dead Inside by Cyndy Etler: Review & Giveaway

The Dead Inside by Cyndy Etler: Review & Giveaway

Giveaways (Ended), Reviews 14 ★★★

I’m doing a bite-sized review of this book because it’s a hard book to review without feeling like I’m judging someone’s life or personal experiences. I had a bit of a hard time with the writing style at first, and there were parts of the book that were a little bit confusing (the timeline, for one—I thought it took place earlier than it did). This held me back from connecting to Cyndy early on. Still, I will say that it was hard to put this book down once I did connect with her a bit more—I felt like I needed to see that Cyndi survived her horrific circumstances. Simply because of Cyndy’s terrible experiences, this book was difficult to read and very disturbing (unfortunately, true stories often are). I actually think that some of the things that happened to Cyndy before she ever got to Straight were harder for me… Read more »

Accidentally on Purpose by Jill Shalvis – Review, Excerpt & Giveaway

Accidentally on Purpose by Jill Shalvis – Review, Excerpt & Giveaway

Giveaways (Ended), Reviews 14 ★★★★

Once again, Jill Shalvis gives us memorable friendships, a steamy romance, witty banter and slightly broken protagonists who are just doing their best to keep it all together—sometimes successfully. The result is a romance that’s easy to connect to and a lot of fun.  What Fed My Addiction: A past connection. Just like in the last two books in the series (or, at least, the book and novella—I still need to get my hands on the first book and read it), the two main characters have a connection that stems from the distant past. In this case, we learn right away that Archer saved Elle in some way when she was sixteen, but the details of what happened unfold throughout the book (so I won’t spoil them!)—all we know for sure is that Elle and Archer have a complicated past and their feelings about that past hold them back from jumping into… Read more »
