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

My December Book of the Month Pick

Hello, fellow bookworms! I can't believe December is already here! I'm so excited for Christmas and have already done most of my shopping. Last month, I skipped my Book of the Month since I had so many books to read, but now I've gotten somewhat caught up and am ready for more. In this post,… Continue reading My December Book of the Month Pick

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: “My Sister, the Serial Killer” by Oyinkan Braithwaite

I picked up this book while visiting Chicago over the summer, and it was more interesting than I thought it would be! After reading Jane Igharo's "The Sweetest Remedy", this book was also written by a Nigerian author, but oh how different this book is compared to Igharo's! Here is the book's description: "When Korede's… Continue reading A Review: “My Sister, the Serial Killer” by Oyinkan Braithwaite

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
