REVIEW: The Dark Tide

“Eva had reached her limit for human interaction.  She could feel the climbing tension in her muscles, the sharp stab of irritation every time another person spoke, the rising desire to pluck one of her hairpins out of her braids and shove it through someone’s throat.” ——————— Ok, I think Jasinska captured my personality inContinue reading “REVIEW: The Dark Tide”

πŸš€ REVIEW: How to Mars πŸš€

“… but it turns out that after a while even scientists can get bored of science.” ———————– No, we can’t, right? I mean nerdy space stuff is my jam. I even applied for the Mars One program, but after reading this book, I realize I did not prepare myself adequately for what being a pioneerContinue reading “πŸš€ REVIEW: How to Mars πŸš€”

REVIEW: A Theater for Dreamers

“The writers pull their chairs closer when they hear that he’s a published poet.

β˜€οΈ REVIEW: People We Meet on Vacation β˜€οΈ

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 “β˜€οΈ REVIEW: People We Meet on Vacation β˜€οΈ”

🌸 REVIEW: The Plot πŸŒΈ

β€œYou 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.” β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€” I’m rarely at a loss for words but I have no idea how to rate this book. Its premise is so unique.

🌺 REVIEW: The Most Beautiful Girl in Cuba πŸŒΊ

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 πŸŒΊ”

🌴 Pub Day Review: Mary Jane πŸŒ΄

“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 πŸŒ΄”

🌺 REVIEW: Ariadne πŸŒΊ

“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 πŸŒΊ”
