A Review: “It Ends with Us” by Colleen Hoover

I bought this book as an add-on to my June Book of the Month and was really excited to read it mostly because of the pretty cover art. I read this in three days during my trip to Pensacola, which is the fastest I have read a book in a really long time. Despite having… Continue reading A Review: “It Ends with Us” by Colleen Hoover

I received this book as an add-on for a Book of the Month box. With mostly positive reviews on Goodreads, I had high hopes for this novel, but unfortunately, this one missed the mark for me.

A Review: “The Book of Longings” by Sue Monk Kidd

I started reading "The Book of Longings" way back in January and was a little wary of it. But I had heard good reviews about this book and thought I would see for myself. I think the author wrote it well and made it believable, which I appreciated. Told from the perspective of Ana, a… Continue reading A Review: “The Book of Longings” by Sue Monk Kidd

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
