Audio Review: Absolute Power by David Baldacci


May Contain Spoilers

I don’t read many thrillers, but a friend sent an Audible copy of Absolute Power to me, so I loaded it up and listened to on my drives to work. My listening was interrupted when I went to visit my dad for a few days, but I picked right up and didn’t feel that I missed too much in the week I was gone. This was a great read, though I thought the ending was wrapped up a bit too speedily.

Manga Review: The Promised Neverland V 1 by Kaiu Shirai & Posuka Demizu @shonenjump


May Contain Spoilers

This was a free read at VizMedia.com (until 2/4).  I realized the first volume was a free read the day before it expired, and I’m so glad that I made the time to read it. I didn’t know anything about the story going in, and by the end of the first chapter, I was like – whoa. This was a fast read, with horror, suspense, and fantasy elements. I’m hooked.

Review: #Prettyboy Must Die by Kimberly Reid


May Contain Spoilers

I can’t lie – when I saw the title for this book, I was dying to read it. I thought it would be a fun spy caper, kind of like Alley Carter’s books. I had mixed results with this one, mainly because of the protagonist. And you definitely have to suspend disbelief, because some of the plot is so over the top it is hard to swallow.

Review: The Rancher by Sarah M Anderson


May Contain Spoilers

Okay. Where to start with this one? I wanted to read The Rancher because I am a huge fan of Sarah M Anderson’s writing. I had my reservations, though, to be honest. The whole concept of the hero wearing a mask – I don’t know, it just seemed so weird to me. And as I got into the story – did Jacob even have a nose? I think this would have worked better if I had read it at another time of the year. I have been reading light, happy Christmas stories, and this does not fit into that mindset. I found the story dark, humorless, and a slag-fest to get through.

Review: Cowboy Doctor by Rebecca Winters


May Contain Spoilers

This is the second book in Rebecca Winters Sapphire Mountains Cowboys that I’ve read.  I love the setting for this series, but I have the same problem I have with most Rebecca Winters’ books; the insta-love drives me nuts. I just don’t find it believable. It’s hard to trust someone with your heart after you’ve known them for a while, but after two days? Nope. I don’t buy it. However, Cowboy Doctor had enough other things going for it that I just accepted the insta-love and kept turning the pages.

Review: The Fortune Teller by Gwendolyn Womack


May Contain Spoilers

When I was approached about reviewing this title, I was torn.  I am completely swamped with review books, and I was hesitant to add yet another commitment to my already full schedule. But I saw that part of the book takes place in my favorite time period, Ancient Egypt, and I couldn’t say no.  I’m glad I read the book. It was enjoyable, and I wouldn’t have picked it up otherwise, as it was nowhere on my radar. Read more

Review: Pretty Girls by Karin Slaughter

May Contain Spoilers

Review by Poo Penny

Wow. I read a few reviews, and knew this was a little…. dark, but I was not expecting such graphic detail! But would the book have been as good without it? I don’t know. I was engrossed in this story once the shock factor kicked in anyway.

The chapters that were the father’s POV were beautifully written. They were filled with so much emotion, it almost felt like I shouldn’t be reading them.

Can I admit to you that I am lonely?
