Revenge Wears Prada by Lauren Weisberger

I bought this on impulse walking by a Bargain Books rack in my local Hastings…after all, is it really possible to walk past a Bargain Books rack and not purchase something? I digress. This book was terrible. The first few chapters were about getting reacquainted with Andy, the protagonist from the Devil Wears Prada (oneContinue reading “Revenge Wears Prada by Lauren Weisberger”

Gemini by Carol Cassella

I’m going to get a little bit personal before I get into this review and just say this – working full time, going to school, blogging and trying to find time for everyone and everything? It’s HARD. A lot harder than I thought it would be. That being said, I want to give a hugeContinue reading “Gemini by Carol Cassella”

Friendship by Emily Gould

I wanted to so desperately to like this book. Love it, even. When you’re going through something in real life, it can often be comforting to read about someone else going through it in a story. It is for me, at least. In a way that only glimpsing into someone else’s life can, it makesContinue reading “Friendship by Emily Gould”

Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty

“Sometimes it’s the little lies that turn out to be the most lethal. . . . A murder… . . . a tragic accident… . . . or just parents behaving badly? What’s indisputable is that someone is dead.   But who did what?” – Goodreads Big Little Lies follows the lives of three womenContinue reading “Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty”

The Deep End of the Sea by Heather Lyons

Oh, hell. I hate giving bad reviews, especially on books that most people rave about–I certainly don’t want to put anyone off from reading this book, but it certainly wasn’t for me. I suspect I was an exception. Disclaimer: I’m all for romance novels. I do enjoy them. I do not enjoy the cheesy kind,Continue reading “The Deep End of the Sea by Heather Lyons”

Lost Lake by Sarah Addison Allen

A couple of weeks ago, right before school started, I wanted something light to end the summer with. The book version of a good old fashioned chick flick more or less. I’d had Lost Lake sitting on the shelf of my Nook for months now, just never getting around to reading it, and I wishContinue reading “Lost Lake by Sarah Addison Allen”

Epic of Palins (#1 and #2) by Elizabeth Vaughan

Well, let me start by saying I didn’t finish the series, despite the misleading post title. But we’ll get to that. I started with Dagger Star. I recently finished the Warlands series by Vaughan, and I loved it. I figured I’d love another Vaughan novel, too. I didn’t. Maybe my hopes were too high, orContinue reading “Epic of Palins (#1 and #2) by Elizabeth Vaughan”

Chronicles of the Warlands 1-4 by Elizabeth Vaughan

After reading Stolen Songbird, falling in love with it, and then realizing I would have to wait until spring for book two—well, I was looking for a fantasy series with more than one book. I wanted several. I’m a total binge reader (obviously) and a series? A series is awesome. A series is the best.Continue reading “Chronicles of the Warlands 1-4 by Elizabeth Vaughan”

The Husband’s Secret by Liane Moriarty

When I read The Husband’s Secret, I was on a vacation of sorts in Oregon with my in-laws and husband, and really just needed something to help me get away from everything that was going on. I was sort of desperate, and not much was drawing me in, but this – this one drew meContinue reading “The Husband’s Secret by Liane Moriarty”
