Mycroft Holmes by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Anna Waterhouse: A Review

Mycroft Holmes by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar My rating: 3 of 5 stars I came across this series at my local library. I didn't even realize who the author was until I got home with the book. I'm a semi-decent Sherlock fan and mystery novel lover, so that is why I originally picked up the book.The story… Continue reading Mycroft Holmes by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Anna Waterhouse: A Review

I might do something with all my classic reviews at the end… Continue reading February TBR

Devian by Shanna Bosarge: A Review

The Elemental Union: Book One Devian by Shanna Bosarge My rating: 3 of 5 stars I got this book in a farmer's market in Georgia while visiting family.

Time’s Convert by Deborah Harkness: A Review

Time's Convert by Deborah Harkness My rating: 4 of 5 stars I really enjoyed the original series, so I knew I would enjoy this extension of the story. It is pretty important to read the All Souls Trilogy before this book. There are a lot of references to characters and major plot points. So, fair… Continue reading Time’s Convert by Deborah Harkness: A Review

Favorite Books of 2018

Reading has slowed down significantly as the holiday season arrived.  Plus, I've been spending a good portion of my time in November putting together furniture.  Still, I thought it would be fun to look back over the books that received five stars.  I definitely saw some trends that I thought I would share with you. … Continue reading Favorite Books of 2018

Before We Met by Lucie Whitehouse: A Review

Before We Met by Lucie WhitehouseMy rating: 2 of 5 stars I chose to read this book based on a YouTube recommendation. Ultimately, the book wasn't for me. I enjoy a good thriller from time to time. I enjoyed "Gone Girl", but this is not "Gone Girl". It's not even the UK version of "Gone… Continue reading Before We Met by Lucie Whitehouse: A Review
