With Malice: Eileen Cook

With Malice: Eileen Cook

Holy freaking crap, WHERE THE HELL DO I EVEN BEGIN?  This book was just so, so good and it renew my faith in thrillers after the last couple I read weren’t the best.  With Malice had me on the edge of my seat the entire time, and it’s also one of the only thriller books that I have read (besides Dangerous Girls) where I was completely clueless regarding theories.  Because I read so many thrillers, I usually can put stuff together pretty quickly, but with this book, I felt like I didn’t know anything. With Malice follows the story of Jill, I’m not going to rehash everything, that’s what the summary up above is for.  We know from the beginning […]

Christy’s Novel Rewind (7)

Posted April 23, 2016 by Christy / 13 Comments

Novel Rewind is the way Erica and I wrap up our week. Though, since there is two of us we’ll be alternating weeks and each of our separate posts will be showcasing the past two weeks. We will be linking up to Stacking the Shelves and The Sunday Post. Life & What’s Happened These last two weeks have been insane.  My work schedule is ridiculous, I work 75+ hours in a week and yesterday (which was my daughters birthday) was my first day off and I was exhausted but I still managed to make myself get up and take my birthday girl out to celebrate.  My husband and son were at work and school so my mom and I took Shyann out shopping and to Texas Roadhouse […]

The Way I Used To Be: Amber Smith

Holy crap, this was an emotional book for me to read.  I’m the person that actually likes reading books about the tough subjects, it’s hard and a lot of times, I question myself on why I’m putting myself through so much torture with such difficult and tragic things to read about, but it in the end, I like those type of books because they are REAL and they make me feel something, if that makes sense?  Life is not easy, life is messy and it’s hard, and bad things happen to good people all the time, and while we all wish for the happily ever after, sometimes that doesn’t work out. I’m going to go ahead and warn you, this book […]

Yes, No, Or Maybe: Books I’m Thinking of Reading

Posted April 14, 2016 by Christy / 6 Comments

Do you have those books that you’ve been eyeing for a while but you are on the fence about whether or not you should read them? Either you are afraid that you won’t like them, or you’ve heard ‘ehhh’ things about them, or for whatever reason you have been hesitant to pick them up?  Well, I have a ton of them.  So I thought that I’d let you all help me decide which ones I should pick up and which ones I should stay away from. Since I’m always finding new books that I’m always on the fence about, this may become a regular thing. I’m going to list 3 books and you all can tell me in the comments which […]

Dreamology: Lucy Keating

Dreamology: Lucy Keating

Writing this review makes me sad.  When I first saw the cover for this book and read the summary, I was expecting to fall in love.  I mean, just look at that cover and that summary made Dreamology sound exactly like my type of book.  However, this book was just OK for me. Let me explain. > I wasn’t invested in the main characters and their story.  Sure, it sounds like such an interesting concept.  Here we have two people that have been dreaming about each other for most of their lives and then when they meet in real life, things change.  And then when their dreams start bleeding over into their waking life (totally not a spoiler, it’s in […]

We will be linking up to Stacking the Shelves and The Sunday Post. Life & What’s Happened Life has been rough the last week.  I had two of THE WORST days at work on Wednesday and Thursday.  I seriously need a change soon cause I don’t know how much I can handle of this job.  It’s just not safe and it scares the hell out of me.  Luckily, I have a job interview this coming Wednesday at a different hospital so *fingers crossed* And after all […]
