The Roughest Draft

Katrina Freeling and Nathan Van Huysen haven’t spoken in four years, since they put the finishing touches on their bestselling novel. Now, to fulfill their contract, they’ve been thrown back together to write one final book. What could go wrong? Is it just me or does anyone get major Beach Read by Emily Henry vibes?…

January 2022 Most Anticipated

A new year is almost upon us. Which means we get to lie to ourselves about all the books we’re going to read from our shelves this year, instead of getting new books! Not to make you break any New Year’s resolution you might have about reading your backlist, but there are so many good…

The School for Good Mothers

This review really pains me to write as it was one of my most anticipated for January 2022. The School for Good Mothers is being touted as a new The Handmaid’s Tale.

One Step too Far

I read Before She Disappeared earlier this year, and it was my very first Lisa Gardner book. I loved it and was determined to read more from Gardner. I actually didn’t get around to any of her backlist this year, but I did find out that Frankie Elkin was coming back and I was stoked!…

December 2021 Book of the Month

Twenty Years Later

I am a huge fan of Charlie Donlea’s Rory Moore/Lane Phillips’ series and so I was extremely excited to get an Advanced copy of Donlea’s upcoming releases Twenty Years Later. One of my favorite things about Donlea’s writing is that characters from his series tend to make small appearances in his standalone books. It really…
