2017: #8 – Give Peas a Chance (Kate Samela, MS, RD, CSP)

Fri, 17 Nov 2017 22:17:36 +0000

(image) If you are a parent, I’m sure some version of the words “why won’t my child eat???” have escaped your lips on at least one occasion. In my case, it’s way too often. Max, who is almost 4, is a terribly picky eater. Some examples of what he will eat: any breakfast food that resembles bread or pancakes, hot dogs,

2017: #7 – Big Little Lies (Liane Moriarty)

Thu, 02 Nov 2017 19:27:26 +0000

(image) I completely missed the boat on this book the first time around. It was one of those that flitted around the periphery of my reading world, but nothing drew me to pick it up and give it a try. And then I watched the first episode of the HBO show. I don’t get HBO, so it was going to be

2017: #6 – Ghostland (Colin Dickey)

Tue, 31 Oct 2017 13:12:33 +0000

(image) This book was a birthday gift from my husband, who knows how much I love both old buildings and ghosts. I’m not sure I would have learned of it otherwise. We have toured many a historic home and taken ghost tours in many cities, because I love the combination of history with the mystical. So this book was right in

2017: #5 – Three Dark Crowns (Kendare Blake)

Sun, 29 Oct 2017 20:35:38 +0000

(image) The premise of this book/series is rather dark. In this world, every Queen gives birth to female triplets. These triplets are sent to separate foster families in different areas of the kingdom to be raised and have their magical talents nurtured, never to see or interact with each other. And then on their 16th birthday, they will come together, meet

2017: #4 – It Ends With Us (Colleen Hoover)

Fri, 27 Oct 2017 20:16:10 +0000

(image) This book fell solidly into the “eh, it was okay” category for me. I’m not familiar with Colleen Hoover, but she appears to have quite a following. If you look around, you’ll see a LOT of 5 star reviews for this book. But it just didn’t do it for me. First, the male lead’s name kept pulling me out of

2017: #3 – Into the Darkest Corner (Elizabeth Haynes)

Fri, 04 Aug 2017 20:45:08 +0000

(image) This book was a chilling portrait of an abusive relationship and its aftermath. When Catherine meets Lee, she effortlessly lets him in to her life. Sure, he doesn’t talk much and his job is mysterious and sometimes he disappears for days at a time, but he’s handsome and a good lover and all of her friends are jealous, so what’s

2017: #2 – The Bear and the Nightingale (Katherine Arden)

Sun, 16 Jul 2017 20:14:55 +0000

(image) This book had some red flags for me. First, it starts out with some folklore. I really just have no patience for folklore. My eyes glaze over and I start skimming. But I hung in and kept going! Second, the genre lies somewhere between fantasy and historical fiction and magical realism, and magical realism and I have never gotten along

2017: #1 – With Love From the Inside (Angela Pisel)

Fri, 14 Jul 2017 20:03:43 +0000

(image) Sophie has a secret, one that her doctor husband and fancy friends would never guess. Seventeen years ago, Sophie’s mother Grace killed Sophie’s baby brother, and she now sits on death row. This book follows the stretch of time between Grace and Sophie finding out what her execution date is and that date. You get alternating view points, from Sophie’s

2016: Wicked Charms (Janet Evanovich & Phoef Sutton)

Fri, 16 Jun 2017 20:20:07 +0000

(image) Again, not a lot here that’s different than the first book. There was a little extra treasure hunting spice here, and I think Lizzy & Diesel are growing closer. Still hate the monkey. I like this series for a quick, pleasant read, so I hope she continues the series. Other reviews: “A fabulous novel that you must try, even if

2016: Wicked Business (Janet Evanovich)

Wed, 14 Jun 2017 20:10:23 +0000

(image) There’s not a lot here that’s different than the first book. I did enjoy the visit to historic places. Unfortunately, the monkey hasn’t gotten any better. Can the monkey just take a vacation? Please? Honestly, this story is sort of a big scavenger hunt, but it’s okay for book candy. Other reviews: “I’m hoping the next story will be more
