I Owe You One | Sophie Kinsella

Not worth it. ☹️ The main character is weak on purpose, and then it takes a man for her to gain strength. No thank you.

CarolynM Agreed. Very disappointing 😠 7mo

Star-Crossed | Minnie Darke

Written with a tone unlike that of my favorite Pushing Daisies narrator, the author does an excellent job weaving in the storylines of several characters, all while focusing on our main ones, Justine and Nick. Pegging the qualities of an Aquarius in Nick: a little flighty, very creative and passionate, and Justine‘s Sagittarius ways of picking up on the details, our author crafts a lovely story for romance readers and astrology admirers alike.

Cute, quick romance that‘s written well and isn‘t entirely gaggy! Loved that the main character is a walking factoid!

I was given the opportunity to read this via an ARC. I absolutely adored this story. Helen Hoang does it again! Read it once it comes out- you won‘t regret it!

This book was amazing! Funny, poignant, and just sprinkled with the right kind of madness. Jenny Lawson has a fan for life! I will suggest this book to all that want a book that feels like a hilarious breath of fresh air forever.

Kindred | Octavia E. Butler

I see why this book would be an important one to read, but it was also gut-wrenching and altogether difficult to get through. The author does an impressive job taking you with the character back to her own personal hell and the hell of so many who suffered at the hands of slavery. Definitely left me outside my comfort zone.

ProfReader I can‘t wait to read this novel!!! 9mo

I think I‘m getting to that stage where YA is no longer capturing my attention! This was a cute read, but definitely for a younger crowd.

When We Left Cuba | Chanel Cleeton

I was lucky enough to receive a ARC of this amazing novel and it did not disappoint. An amazing story that interlaces true, historical events with an original fiction that is unlike anything I‘ve ever read (save her first novel). Beatriz Perez is the embodiment of the woman we all crave to become someday: fiercely strong and intelligent, who knows how to see the world for what it is. This story is one that will resonate with me forever. Amazing.

Powerful read. The story isn‘t overwhelming or flourishing, but quiet, just like everyday life. The writing is beautiful and reminds you that words on a page are so much more than just that. Great read!

“Just because you can‘t see a thing doesn‘t mean she isn‘t there.”
Whoa. I‘m not one for ghosty-supernatural style fiction, but this was a great book. The ending fell a bit flat, but very good read overall.

Interesting read. I enjoyed the research aspect of this book and the way she mixed in her personal stories in between. Every body is a good body at the end of the day!

After being a fan of the movie all these years, finally read the play. So good. Amazing that the playwright had these powerful ideals that we‘re still fighting for today.

So cute! Love the career and love tie in. Loved the fact that it wasn‘t all about love and more about a woman coming to terms with who she is and who she‘s meant to be for herself. Good read!

First fiction audiobook I‘ve been able to get through without fading into my own thoughts. Wonderfully written; funny, light and heavy all at once. There‘s a little bit of Eleanor in all of us. Amazing read!

Well, I read my first full fledged romance novel and was greatly disappointed. I‘ve read some that have all pleasantly surprised me and been their fair share of predicable, but man... this one was too predictable.

While this book was well written and I did like the characters and their development, this was basically a melting pot of other books like Divergent, The Hunger Games series, and GoT. It did leave me curious enough to see if it finds its voice, so I‘ll be reading the other books.
