A Simple Favor-Darcey Bell

I’m so sorry I’ve been such a slacker! Between our wedding/honeymoon trip to Montana, our wedding reception and returning to work I’ve been completely swamped! Luckily, I’m getting back into the swing of things and have started reading pretty heavily again. When Stephanie’s friend Emily asks her to pick up her son from school, StephanieContinue reading “A Simple Favor-Darcey Bell”

Hag-Seed- Margaret Atwood 

Overall, I’m not a huge Shakespeare fan. It’s always been difficult for me to read iambic pentameter so I’ve avoided it at all costs. But I saw Hag-Seed by Margaret Atwood on Blogging for Books and thought I had better give it a shot since its a modern retelling of a classic. The definition ofContinue reading “Hag-Seed- Margaret Atwood “

Sip-Brian Allen Carr

I’ve become a big fan of apocalyptic stories over the last year. Although I find the idea of these stories completely terrifying, I find myself seeking them out.

Lydia has a very dark past, one that she doesn’t discussContinue reading “Midnight At The Bright Ideas Bookstore- Matthew Sullivan ”

The Lying Game- Ruth Ware

I love Ruth Ware. I was a huge fan of both In A Dark, Dark Wood and The Woman In Cabin 10 and have previously done reviews on both. So, naturally, I bombarded Scout Press and they were kind enough to send me an advanced copy of her latest, The Lying Game, coming out JulyContinue reading “The Lying Game- Ruth Ware”

Magpie Murders-Anthony Horowitz

Two mysteries in one?!?! Count me in! When I heard about Magpie Murders I was curious how the ending would turn out in this Agatha Christie-esque story since there was so much hype. Editor Susan Ryeland receives a copy of her popular author Alan Conway’s newest mystery novel in its series. It is, naturally, herContinue reading “Magpie Murders-Anthony Horowitz”

Spill Zone- Scott Westerfeld

I have never read a graphic novel. For some reason I just didn’t get the appeal which is weird because I love Disney moves and animation so why wouldn’t I like stories with super sweet illustration? No idea, it didn’t make sense. But then I heard about Spill Zone on All The Books and itContinue reading “Spill Zone- Scott Westerfeld”
