A Review: “The Stardust Thief” by Chelsea Abdullah

Wow, I've got to say that this book totally exceeded my expectations, and I cannot wait until Chelsea Abdullah comes out with the second book. I did not know this was the first of a series, but the story is an epic one, and I can see why more books need to be written to… Continue reading A Review: “The Stardust Thief” by Chelsea Abdullah

A Review: “Happiness for Beginners” by Katherine Center

This is my fourth time reading a book by Katherine Center. She is definitely my favorite author recently. I even selected her book, The Bodyguard, for my July Book of the Month pick. My favorite novel of hers so far has been Things You Save in a Fire, which I thoroughly enjoyed. But I've also… Continue reading A Review: “Happiness for Beginners” by Katherine Center

A Review: “What We Lose” by Zinzi Clemmons

I picked up this book while visiting Branson, Missouri last year. I mostly was drawn to it because of the beautiful cover art, but I've got to say that this book was just not my cup of tea. Written by Zinzi Clemmons, an American writer with South African roots, "What We Lose" is Clemmons' debut… Continue reading A Review: “What We Lose” by Zinzi Clemmons

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 of “Island Queen” by Vanessa Riley

Hello, fellow bookworms! I'm back after a much-needed break from blogging.
