#BookReview The Lion’s Den by Katherine St. John

A while back, The Lion's Den seemed to be advertised EVERYWHERE. Maybe it was just me and my book reading habit that the ads picked up on, but I kept seeing it over and over. I really wanted to take a dip into the waters of this book, but I kept putting it off. The… Continue reading #BookReview The Lion’s Den by Katherine St. John

#BookReview In The Dark by Cara Hunter

I discovered Cara Hunter years ago through Goodreads and ever since I've been on the hunt for her novels. I accidentally came across one of them in a local store. They normally don't even sell books! But there was In The Dark perched on top of a little display. I grabbed it, speed walked as… Continue reading #BookReview In The Dark by Cara Hunter

#BookReview Intricate Deceptions by Jennifer Rayes

Intricate Deceptions was an exceptional start to an exciting series. This novel was far better than I expected it to be. At the beginning, I was a little put off by the start (loss of memory/amnesia as an intro hasn't boded well for me in my readings) but it turned out to blow my mind!… Continue reading #BookReview Intricate Deceptions by Jennifer Rayes

#BookReview The First Days of August by Alan Froning

I have a love/hate relationship with this book. For one, it's seriously incredible and so well written that OMG why haven't you read it yet? For the second, the ending made me SO DARN MAD. I did not enjoy that ending and I think it almost defeated the purpose of this book - but I'm… Continue reading #BookReview The First Days of August by Alan Froning
