☀️ REVIEW: People We Meet on Vacation ☀️

Well, you all know rom coms aren’t always my thing but I was really surprised by last year’s Beach Read by Emily Henry, so I was more than happy to grab this one when it became available on Book of the Month. It made the perfect pool read for this week. I love that theContinue reading “☀️ REVIEW: People We Meet on Vacation ☀️”

🌸 REVIEW: The Plot 🌸

“You act like words don’t belong to everyone. You act like words don’t belong to everyone. You act like stories don’t have real people attached to them.” ———————————— I’m rarely at a loss for words but I have no idea how to rate this book. Its premise is so unique. I’m not going to giveContinue reading “🌸 REVIEW: The Plot 🌸”

🌺 REVIEW: The Most Beautiful Girl in Cuba 🌺

I really adore Chanel Cleeton’s writing and this story just may be my favorite yet. The weaving of three women’s stories in the late 1800’s surrounding the Cuban War for Independence from the Spanish imparted so much history in a readable format.  Two of the women, Evangelina and Mariana are living in Cuba and haveContinue reading “🌺 REVIEW: The Most Beautiful Girl in Cuba 🌺”

🌴 Pub Day Review: Mary Jane 🌴

“Where people were just doing what they wanted, without concern as to how it was seen. Maybe a person’s standing in the community was an illusion. Like the witch in the Cone house. An imagined evil that created unnecessary rules.” ———————————— Wow, well, what to say about Mary Jane… I get Mary Jane. Mary JaneContinue reading “🌴 Pub Day Review: Mary Jane 🌴”

🌺 REVIEW: Ariadne 🌺

“I know that human life shines more brightly because it is but a shimmering candle against an eternity of darkness, and it can be extinguished with the faintest breeze.” ————————- I love a mythology retelling and Ariadne did not disappoint! I actually think the name is a misnomer as while the story revolves around AriadneContinue reading “🌺 REVIEW: Ariadne 🌺”

🌴 REVIEW: Perfect Days 🌴

WTF?! What did I just read?! It had all of the creepy stalkery goodness of You, with hint of Misery and a dash of Dexter all rolled into one crazy package. 😱 Teo is a medical student and is slightly introverted… his closest friend is his corpse from anatomy lab. But he seems like aContinue reading “🌴 REVIEW: Perfect Days 🌴”

REVIEW: The Henna Artist

Why did I wait so long to read this book? With all the rave reviews, my love of historical fiction and my own experience with Jaipur, you’d think I’d have tackled this one sooner. But with the sequel coming, it really lit the fire for me.  I was drawn in completely from the first page,Continue reading “REVIEW: The Henna Artist”

REVIEW: Of Women and Salt

Happy Cinco de Mayo! I planned this post for today as Mexico plays a role for two of the characters but now that I’ve read it, none of the women are actually Mexican so bear with the fact that it doesn’t really make sense for today (best laid plans right?). Either way – Viva Mexico!Continue reading “REVIEW: Of Women and Salt”

REVIEW: The Siren

I fell in love with Katherine St John’s soapy, drama filled writing in The Lion’s Den so I was super excited to get my hands on a copy of The Siren. The Siren takes place during a movie shoot and revolves around a famous, divorced Hollywood couple reuniting with all the drama that brings. WeContinue reading “REVIEW: The Siren”

REVIEW: The Girl who Died

I’ve been to Iceland twice and I love their literature, I will read anything set in the unique environment, especially if it takes place off the beaten path like this one. Una’s life is plodding along at a mediocre pace with no real success or joy. When she sees an add for a teacher inContinue reading “REVIEW: The Girl who Died”
