REVIEW: Home Sweet Mess

I don’t read a ton of contemporary romance, but in the summer they make for great poolside reads. There’s just something about sunshine and happiness that go together. Home Sweet Mess is a saccharine sweet love story that tackles some important issues around relationship trauma and the importance of healing. Logan is your typical playboyContinue reading “REVIEW: Home Sweet Mess”

REVIEW: Pulse

Pulse is a love letter to hardworking, dedicated members of the medical community. The story follows the ins and outs of a Texas emergency room through the point of view of Dr Jackson.

🐠 Vacation Review: The Maidens 🐠

“There was a word for this moment in Greek tragedy: anagnorisis – recognition – the moment when the hero finally sees the truth and understands his fate – and how it’s always been there, the whole time, in front of him.” ————————— So I was one of the few folks who didn’t think The SilentContinue reading “🐠 Vacation Review: The Maidens 🐠”

“We can’t know why you are dying in the same way that we can’t know why you’re living.

In the vein of The Fault in Our Stars, we know right away that our twoContinue reading “REVIEW: The One Hundred Years of Lenni and Margot”

REVIEW: The Falling Woman

“He’s trying to explain why the sky is inside him. If they mined down into his soul, they would find wings.  The sky runs through him, into places of himself he still hasn’t mapped. A calling, perhaps, the way a priest is called, or like the great passion of lovers …  The airplane expanded theContinue reading “REVIEW: The Falling Woman”
