REVIEW: A Theater for Dreamers

“The writers pull their chairs closer when they hear that he’s a published poet. They are devils at a feast, tightening the circle as he talks of a little room where he might finish blackening the pages of a novel.” ——————————————- And here you thought my Hawaii photos were over… think again!! โ˜€๏ธ๐ŸŒŠ๐ŸŒด A TheaterContinue reading “REVIEW: A Theater for Dreamers”

โ˜€๏ธ REVIEW: People We Meet on Vacation โ˜€๏ธ

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 “โ˜€๏ธ REVIEW: People We Meet on Vacation โ˜€๏ธ”

๐ŸŒธ REVIEW: The Plot ๐ŸŒธ

โ€œYou act like words donโ€™t belong to everyone. You act like words donโ€™t belong to everyone. You act like stories donโ€™t have real people attached to them.โ€ โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€” Iโ€™m rarely at a loss for words but I have no idea how to rate this book. Its premise is so unique. Iโ€™m not going to giveContinue reading “๐ŸŒธ REVIEW: The Plot ๐ŸŒธ”

๐ŸŒบ REVIEW: The Most Beautiful Girl in Cuba ๐ŸŒบ

I really adore Chanel Cleetonโ€™s writing and this story just may be my favorite yet. The weaving of three womenโ€™s stories in the late 1800โ€™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 “๐ŸŒบ REVIEW: The Most Beautiful Girl in Cuba ๐ŸŒบ”

๐ŸŒด Pub Day Review: Mary Jane ๐ŸŒด

“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 “๐ŸŒด Pub Day Review: Mary Jane ๐ŸŒด”

๐ŸŒบ REVIEW: Ariadne ๐ŸŒบ

“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 “๐ŸŒบ REVIEW: Ariadne ๐ŸŒบ”

๐ŸŒด REVIEW: Perfect Days ๐ŸŒด

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. ๐Ÿ˜ฑ Teo is a medical student and is slightly introverted… his closest friend is his corpse from anatomy lab. But he seems like aContinue reading “๐ŸŒด REVIEW: Perfect Days ๐ŸŒด”

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”
