Review: Outlander

Outlander by Diana Gabaldon

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Why did I wait so long to read this? Maybe I judged a book by its cover, or found the premise overdone. Maybe I kept skimming it over for quick, instant-gratification reads that never quite satisfied. I may never know, but I'm glad that this series has now come into my life.

I love the characters. I love the mystery. I love the realistic way that old love fades and new love builds. I just love it all, is that so wrong?

As I'm on a self-induced book buying hiatus at the moment I'm wringing my hands on the e-book hold list with my local library. If whomever is reading it currently sees this could you, pretty please with a Highlander on top, read faster? Okaythanksbye!

Review: I've Got Your Number

I've Got Your Number
I've Got Your Number by Sophie Kinsella

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I snagged this book last night, while suffering from insomnia and desperate for a good read. I didn't expect much, to be honest. Color me surprised when it turned out to be absolutely delightful! This was a wonderful story, and I'm very glad that I stumbled upon it.

Review: The Ring of Morgana

The Ring of Morgana
The Ring of Morgana by Donna Hosie

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

*Review originally appeared on Amazon*

There are books that leave you feeling pensive. There are those that leave you confused, and maybe even a little crazy. And then there are the special ones. The ones you find yourself thinking of when you first wake up. The ones that make you scour the internet, hoping to find even the tiniest morsel letting you know when you can get your grabby hands on the next one.

"The Ring of Morgana" is one of the special books. From start to finish it captivates the reader, whisking them away to a magical place with infinite possibilities. It tells a story that is as sweet and poignant as it is adventurous and daring...leading readers through a thousand year span in such a manner that they never doubt the possibility of time travel.

Two days after finishing this book random snippets keep popping into my mind, never failing to make me smile. And last night, on the way home from a late baseball game with my youngest son, I'm pretty sure I heard the trees whispering to me...

Touched by Allegra Skye

My rating: 1 of 5 stars

Just because I didn't self-punish enough with the first one I gave the second one a try. Now I need brain bleach.

Ever finished a book scratching your head and wondering what on earth you just read? Yeah, it was something like that...okay, it was EXACTLY like that.
