Before I start this review, I want to set you in the mood I was before I read it. Picture this: You’re young, bright-eyed and bushy-tailed. You’ve dreamed of visiting this far off wonderland place which everyone keeps talking about.  You’ve seen gorgeous pictures and brochures about the place. People wax poetic about how incredible it is. You look forward to it so much that your insides hurt. You can think of nothing but that place! And then … you step off the plane. The air is humid, you get rained on, some homeless guy urinates on your foot. Yep. … Read More

Lana PecherczykBook Reviews0 Comments

I loved this book and devoured it in one and a half sittings. Kate Hewitt is a prolific category romance writer, and this series seems to be one of her first outside of that tightly knit sub-genre. It tells the story of Ellie, who moves to country England in the hopes of starting a new life with her daughter Abby who is being bullied at school. They move into the cute and newly refurbished old stables turned apartments at Willoughby Close. They’re the first family to move in, and arrive with little else but the car they drove in and … Read More

Book Review – Truly, Madly, Guilty by Liane Moriarty

Lana PecherczykAll, Book Reviews2 Comments

This book starts off with a bang. Well, actually, it’s almost like a gunshot going off and you see the bullet wound, but you don’t see the gun, hear the shot, or in fact even know it was a gunshot at all. You see the metaphoric blood seeping and are left wondering for three-quarters of the book, what on earth caused it? There was a barbecue, you see, and something terrible happened. But what? All we know is that it’s thrown the lives of three very different couples and their families into disarray. You’ve got Erika and Oliver, the seemingly stuffy accountants. The … Read More

Stormfate by Louisa Loder My rating: 5 of 5 stars Makes me want to read all the high fantasy books in my shelf over again and again I used to read high fantasy all the time, but somehow over the course of growing up, I stopped. After reading this novella, not only am I eager to see what happens next in the full sized novel, but now I want to get back into reading the whole genre again. The author has managed to include plot twists, multiple characters, amazing dialogue, different worlds and hinted at dark conflicts and battles (internally, … Read More
