BOOK REVIEW: THE LIGHTNING STENOGRAPHY DEVICE by M. F. Sullivan

I can't for the life of me remember where exactly I found this book. I know it was a NetGalley book that got lost to the annals of archives, and I had to go back through and track it down again so that I could read it and review it. (Not that I've done a … Continue reading BOOK REVIEW: THE LIGHTNING STENOGRAPHY DEVICE by M. F. Sullivan

BOOK REVIEW: THE NIGHT CHILD by Anna Quinn

I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.  I'm never write sure what to make of the books I pick up from netgalley. I've read some really amazing things, and I've found some authors I will actively avoid in the future. I don't mind the disparity of it; … Continue reading BOOK REVIEW: THE NIGHT CHILD by Anna Quinn

BOOK REVIEW: MIRRORED HEARTS by Emily Sheppard

I received a copy of this story through NetGalley in exchange for my honest review. I had absolutely no idea of what to expect when confronted with this story. It sounded interesting, so I requested it and it found its way to my Kindle. The description gives away very little (including not telling me something … Continue reading BOOK REVIEW: MIRRORED HEARTS by Emily Sheppard

BOOK REVIEW: BEFORE WE WERE YOURS by Lisa Wingate

I was provided an ARC of this book free of charge by NetGalley in exchange for my honest review. I'm always fascinated by books that include real-life history and stories in them. The "Dear America" diaries were some of my favorites growing up, and it's always been one of my favorite ways to learn history. … Continue reading BOOK REVIEW: BEFORE WE WERE YOURS by Lisa Wingate

BOOK REVIEW: HIMSELF by Jess Kidd

I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review. I seem to be on a kick for reading books which take place in Ireland lately. Not that I'm saying that's a bad thing, but it's amusing that after reading CITY OF BOHANE, my mind seemed much more well-put-together for … Continue reading BOOK REVIEW: HIMSELF by Jess Kidd

BOOK REVIEW: GILDED CAGE by Vic James

I was provided a free ARC of this book from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review. I knew from the moment I saw the description of this book that I was going to want to read it. Having seen the cover, read the description...when it showed up in a NetGalley email to me, I … Continue reading BOOK REVIEW: GILDED CAGE by Vic James

BOOK REVIEW: THE TYRANT’S DAUGHTER by J.C. Carleson

This is another book I initially got from NetGalley and then lost track of and missed the window on. From the description, I can tell what would have appealed to me--the story untold, the repercussions of a parent's generation on their children. And especially in a place as politically charged as the Middle East, this … Continue reading BOOK REVIEW: THE TYRANT’S DAUGHTER by J.C. Carleson

BOOK REVIEW: THE BOY WHO COULD SEE DEMONS by Carolyn Jess-Cooke

So there are a few books on my NetGalley profile that slipped through the cracks early on in my tenure there, and I decided that if I could, I was going to go back and see about giving them the feedback they deserved. This means I'm spending a lot of time cursing at Overdrive and … Continue reading BOOK REVIEW: THE BOY WHO COULD SEE DEMONS by Carolyn Jess-Cooke

BOOK REVIEW: THE WORD EXCHANGE by Alena Graedon

Continuing on in my quest for books that I lost track of during my early days on NetGalley, we come to one of the few books on the list I remember requesting--and being very irritated when I'd found I'd run out of time for it. That was about all I remembered about it. Reading the … Continue reading BOOK REVIEW: THE WORD EXCHANGE by Alena Graedon
