A Review: “Things You Save in a Fire” by Katherine Center

I've been on a Katherine Center kick lately with this being the third book I've read by her in the last two and a half months. Center's writing is so easy and enjoyable to me. I guess that's why her novels are considered "comfort reads." In this novel, main character Cassie Hanwell is a firefighter… Continue reading A Review: “Things You Save in a Fire” by Katherine Center

A Review: “Native Son” by Richard Wright

This book was one that I had been wanting to read for a long time but had put off for so long. I managed to go throughout high school and college without having to read this book as a requirement for class. I thought it was going to be like "To Kill A Mockingbird" but… Continue reading A Review: “Native Son” by Richard Wright

A Review: “What You Wish For” by Katherine Center

Happy New Year! We're less than a week in, and 2022 has not been kind. My husband and I spent the last week sick with COVID-19, but thankfully, we have recovered. I'm stuck in quarantine for the next seven days, but on the bright side, I've been able to catch up on some reading.

A Review: “The Dilemma” by B.A. Paris

What can I say about this psychological thriller? I guess, I'll preface this review and say that I did not love this book. Told between the perspective of Livia, a mother of two grown children, and Adam, her weary husband, the book is based almost entirely during Livia's 40th birthday party -- one that she… Continue reading A Review: “The Dilemma” by B.A. Paris

A Review: “How to Walk Away” by Katherine Center

OK, I'm so excited to write this book review because (knock on wood) this might be the best (most enjoyable) book I've read this year! I couldn't put it down and read it in less than a week, which is pretty fast for me! Here is the book's description: "Margaret Jacobsen is just about to… Continue reading A Review: “How to Walk Away” by Katherine Center

A Review: “The Sweetest Remedy” by Jane Igharo

This book is what I chose for my September Book of the Month. Set in Nigeria, the plot takes the reader on a journey to an affluent neighborhood and large family estate of the Jolades. Main character Hannah's father passes away, and although she did not know him, his will states that he wants her… Continue reading A Review: “The Sweetest Remedy” by Jane Igharo

A Review: “Shadow and Bone” by Leigh Bardugo

Warning: Spoiler alert ahead, if you have not read this book! "Shadow and Bone" is a new fantasy series that has gained popularity over the past year with the premiere of the Netflix series of the same name. I had never heard of this series before watching the show on Netflix, but I was intrigued… Continue reading A Review: “Shadow and Bone” by Leigh Bardugo

A Review: “Sisters in Arms” by Kaia Alderson

This book was my July Book of the Month pick! I chose this book because I've never read anything about the black women officers during the WWII era, and I thought this would be an interesting read. This book - although it had its flaws - was an enjoyable read for me. I really enjoyed… Continue reading A Review: “Sisters in Arms” by Kaia Alderson

A Review of “Island Queen” by Vanessa Riley

Hello, fellow bookworms! I'm back after a much-needed break from blogging. I've been so busy lately with grad school, work, and maintaining a video game YouTube channel with my husband, I haven't had much time to read or blog about reading. I hope to slowly get back into it. During this little break, I did… Continue reading A Review of “Island Queen” by Vanessa Riley

DNF: Artemis by Andy Weir

I bought this book back in May when we visited Branson, MO, and was excited to read a novel by Andy Weir since his big success from The Martian, which I did not read. I also bought this one since I share the same name as the main character, Jasmine. This, however, was a disappointment.… Continue reading DNF: Artemis by Andy Weir
