I typically finish one book a week/every two weeks depending on how busy my weekends are. I am constantly seeing other bloggers being able to finish 1-3… Continue reading Book Blogs, Real Life, Guilt and Being Enough

Book Review: My Plain Jane

MY PLAIN JANE is a Gothic, humorous Jane Eyre retelling that will have you giggling. If you liked MY LADY JANE, you will like this is as well. However, I didn't like MLJ. I couldn't get past the fact that the love interest turned into a horse. I get it, it's supposed to be funny… Continue reading Book Review: My Plain Jane

The Broken Girls by Simone St.James – Book Review

What a fantastic mystery filled with paranormal experiences and suspense. This novel had so many layers that fit together like puzzle pieces and an ending that actually surprised me quite a bit.

The English Wife

I recently told a friend "I'm not really into thriller or mystery books". Had I read The English Wife before that, I never would have said it. This suspenseful novel had me completely captivated from the beginning. Set in the late 1800's, it has all the flair of the Gilded Age with a completely shocking… Continue reading The English Wife
