Somewhere Between Bitter & Sweet: The Sweet Spot of Writing

I have been sitting with my thoughts on this book for quite some time now. But, every time I think about Pen, Xander, and the entire Nacho’s Tacos family, I just can’t help but smile. Somewhere Between Bitter & Sweet is an AMAZING debut and another in the ranking for top 11 of the year.Continue reading “Somewhere Between Bitter & Sweet: The Sweet Spot of Writing”

The Bookstore on the Beach: Pick up this Family Drama!

Review: Brenda Novak really delivers in family dramas. We get heartbreak, hope, and real life situations. There are a lot of plot lines happening all at once. It’s not a bad thing at all! A lot of the plot lines have bit reveals, so I don’t want to spoil them. However, I thought they wereContinue reading “The Bookstore on the Beach: Pick up this Family Drama!”

Spotlight: I Have Been Buried Under Years of Dust

Spotlight: If you know me, you know when I heard about this book, I had to request it. I was able to read a few pages, but mostly sobbed into the pages of understanding and frustration.

Spotlight: Somewhere Between Bitter & Sweet

(well,Continue reading “Decatur, Not Always Greater: Mother May I”

Life’s Too Short: Great Reminder and Story

Review: Can Abby Jimenez do wrong? Nah. This was another wonderful hit in LIFE’S TOO SHORT. I thought the clickbait chapter titles were top notch creative and perfect. I always joke about the clickbait we see on YouTube, and this just made giggle each time. I also tried to guess WTF was going to happen.Continue reading “Life’s Too Short: Great Reminder and Story”

Legendborn: Haven’t Been THIS Excited!

I honestly don’t think I’ve been this excited about a book in a very very very long theme. There are very few books I would fight for. I mean, we all have our own opinions and I respect that. Have you ever seen Dance Moms? When Holly says, “You’re entitled to your wrong opinion” isContinue reading “Legendborn: Haven’t Been THIS Excited!”
