Book Review: Christina Lee’s Whisper to Me

Book Review: Christina Lee’s Whisper to Me

Christina Lee’s Whisper to Me is the third book in her Between Breaths series. If you haven’t read the first two in the series, it’s not necessary to do so in order to enjoy Whisper to Me. I do recommend you read them only because Lee mentions a few things from the books and you might consider spoilers, but I don’t. We have good character development. Ever since I was introduced to Rachel (in All of You) I wanted to know more about her! She’s sassy, strong, and opinionated and I wanted to be her best friend! We finally get to know who she is and wow…Lee gave us a surprise and all I can say is here we have a woman who really does change her personality. The Rachel… Read more »

Blog Tour: Review-Noelle August’s Rebound + Giveaway

Blog Tour: Review-Noelle August’s Rebound + Giveaway

Noelle August’s Rebound is the second book in the Boomerang series and if you haven’t read the first book, Boomerang, it’s not necessary to enjoy Rebound. August doesn’t touch up events from Boomerang though I admit, had I read it, I would have perhaps had a better understanding of Alison and the whole concept of Boomerang as a company. We have good character development despite the fact it’s a bit weak in some areas. Our heroine is Alison Quick and if you’ve read Boomerang, you probably hate her for what she did to Ethan. I can honestly say, give her a chance because you’ll get to know her and realize why she does what she did. I liked her and she has this tough girl attitude but it’s an illusion… Read more »

Blog Tour: Review-Charlee Fam’s Last Train to Babylon + Giveaway

Blog Tour: Review-Charlee Fam’s Last Train to Babylon + Giveaway

I’m always a bit unsure about books where suicide is part of the plot because it can be a wonderful read or just an emotional drain where you can’t get out of an emotional funk. I really enjoyed Charlee Fam’s Last Train to Babylon and am really glad I was able to participate in the blog tour. We have good character development. Our main character is Aubrey Glass and she’s your typical adult, fresh out of university, and is struggling with everyday life. She reluctantly goes home where she has to come face to face with her teenage past. We have several secondary characters that play a vital role including Rachel, Aubrey’s childhood best friend. While we don’t get to spend much time with Rachel in terms of the present,… Read more »

You see someone, they’re attractive to you, and instantly your body and mind go into overdrive thinking about a way to introduce yourself … every so slyly, of course! But I’m talking about love.

Book Review: Pamela DuMond’s The Story of You and Me

Book Review: Pamela DuMond’s The Story of You and Me

Pamela DuMond’s The Story of You and Me is your typical new adult romance novel: girl meets boy and both fall head over heels. Unfortunately, this one fell flat despite the author’s reason for writing this novel (which brought tears to my eyes when I read the author letter). Character development is a bit weak. We get to know Sophie fairly well, but she’s still keeping us at arms length. At times, she comes off as a bit of a ditz (more on that later) and I just had a difficult time actually liking her and couldn’t connect with her. Then there’s Alex, the hot guy that makes Sophie weak in the knees. The problem? I thought he was too sweet and a bit too perfect though he’s hiding a… Read more »
