REVIEW: THE GENTLEMAN’S GUIDE TO VICE AND VIRTUE by MACKENZI LEE

Click here to read the book synopsis on Goodreads. I am so glad that I picked this book up! It made me laugh out loud in public and feel so much love for exceptionally flawed characters – something that I haven’t felt for many books prior. The main character, Monty, is an 18 year oldContinue reading “REVIEW: THE GENTLEMAN’S GUIDE TO VICE AND VIRTUE by MACKENZI LEE”

REVIEW: ThHE BOOK OF ESSIE by MEGHAN MACLEIN WEIR

REVIEW: The Book of Essie by Meghan Maclein Weir, ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5 The Book of Essie had me completely hooked from the first chapter. A tale of betrayal, compromise, a tangled web of lies, and familial tension, I never felt bored. Narrated by 3 very different and dynamic characters, the story took unexpected turns each time IContinue reading “REVIEW: ThHE BOOK OF ESSIE by MEGHAN MACLEIN WEIR”

REVIEW: WHERE’D YOU GO, BERNADETTE? by MARIA SEMPLE

REVIEW: Where’d You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple ⭐️⭐️⭐️💫 /5 This book was a refreshing change from the heavier, more “think-y” books that I’ve been into lately. There’s something about cooler weather that makes me change my taste in books – picking up a 500 page book doesn’t make me bat an eye the way thatContinue reading “REVIEW: WHERE’D YOU GO, BERNADETTE? by MARIA SEMPLE”

REVIEW: THE LAST TIME I LIED by RILEY SAGER

REVIEW: The Last Time I Lied by Riley Sager ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5 I’m the first to admit that I’m pretty hard to please when it comes to a thriller. Even if I don’t see a twist coming, they rarely surprise me because I tend to think the worst of people and expect every character to secretly beContinue reading “REVIEW: THE LAST TIME I LIED by RILEY SAGER”

REVIEW: THE DINNER LIST by REBECCA SERLE

REVIEW: The Dinner List by Rebecca Serle ⭐️⭐️⭐️/5 This book was a solid three stars for me. I saw so many positive, five star reviews for this one! I wanted to love it so bad, but ended up feeling like it was entertaining but forgettable. Here were the positives for me: the chapters were shortContinue reading “REVIEW: THE DINNER LIST by REBECCA SERLE”

REVIEW: SADIE by COURTNEY SUMMERS

REVIEW: “Sadie” by Courtney Summers ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5 This uniquely crafted, heart-wrenching psychological thriller pulled me in from the very beginning. Y’all know how much I love true crime podcasts – and THERE IS A (fictional) TRUE CRIME POD INCORPORATED INTO THE BOOK! I felt like I could hear the narrators voices, experience the anguish the charactersContinue reading “REVIEW: SADIE by COURTNEY SUMMERS”

REVIEW: An ANONYMOUS GIRL by GREER HENDRICKS and SARAH PEKKANEN

Thank you to Netgalley for a free advanced copy of this title in exchange for an honest review. Phew! This was dark, twisty, and gripping. Told from two perspectives, the story reminded me of a snowball – starting small but growing and gaining momentum as I turned the pages. Finally, the snowball flew off aContinue reading “REVIEW: An ANONYMOUS GIRL by GREER HENDRICKS and SARAH PEKKANEN”

REVIEW: FANGIRL by RAINBOW ROWELL

** spoiler alert ** I read Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell years ago and I don’t remember much about it except that I loved it. I went into Fangirl hoping I would get another Eleanor & Park – a story that captivated me and had me up ate at night to finish it. Sadly,Continue reading “REVIEW: FANGIRL by RAINBOW ROWELL”

REVIEW: WHERE THE CRAWDADS SING by DELIA OWENS

If I had the time, I would’ve read this book in one sitting. But, alas, I have responsibilities (being an adult can be rough), so it took me a little under a week to get through it. Now that I’ve finished the book, Delia Owens has made me a believer: a believer in her work,Continue reading “REVIEW: WHERE THE CRAWDADS SING by DELIA OWENS”
