Count Your Lucky Stars by Alexandria Bellefleur @ambellefleur @avonbooks @NetGalley @lgbtqia+romance #loveislove #contemporaryfiction #fiction #bookreviewer #bookblogger

Susanne’s Review: Oh, Drat!  How I wanted to love this and count my lucky stars, but alas, Count Your Lucky Stars by Alexandra Bellefleur was not quite for me.  Stop the presses, however, as it wasn’t the plot or the characters I didn’t love, it was something else altogether.. The fact of it is, thatContinue reading “Count Your Lucky Stars by Alexandria Bellefleur @ambellefleur @avonbooks @NetGalley @lgbtqia+romance #loveislove #contemporaryfiction #fiction #bookreviewer #bookblogger”

The Family Plot by Megan Collins @ImMeganCollins @AtriaBooks @NetGalley #blogtour #thriller #mystery #suspense #bookreviewers #bookblogger

Kaceey’s Review: I’ve read about some bizarre families over the years, but HELLO…the Lighthouse family takes first prize!  Delilah and her three siblings were raised on an island, far from the general population. Homeschooled, with the primary focus of their studies on what else…all things regarding serial killers and their victims! Including ceremonies to honorContinue reading “The Family Plot by Megan Collins @ImMeganCollins @AtriaBooks @NetGalley #blogtour #thriller #mystery #suspense #bookreviewers #bookblogger”

Once There Were Wolves by Charlotte McConaghy @CharMcConaghy @MacmillanAudio @NetGalley #suspense #thriller #fiction #wolfpacks #bookreviewer

Susanne’s Review: A story of love, if there ever was one.  Love of nature, vivid and true.  The love between sisters, family, and friends and a love and respect for animals.  Inti has a deep and abiding connection to many things, her sister Aggie, the wolves, and nature.  This is partially due to Mirror-Touch Synesthesia,Continue reading “Once There Were Wolves by Charlotte McConaghy @CharMcConaghy @MacmillanAudio @NetGalley #suspense #thriller #fiction #wolfpacks #bookreviewer”

Ordinary Hazards by Anna Bruno @annabruno @AtriaBooks @NetGalley #fiction #literaryfiction #bookreviewer

Susanne’s Review: In the span of an evening, lives and losses unfold, quietly, memories spilling forth, some beautiful, heartfelt, warm, just like a soft chenille blanket, while others are gut-wrenching, painful and destructive, like a bar glass filled with bourbon, shattering to the floor spilling liquor and bits of glass everywhere as far as theContinue reading “Ordinary Hazards by Anna Bruno @annabruno @AtriaBooks @NetGalley #fiction #literaryfiction #bookreviewer”

False Witness by Karin Slaughter @SlaughterKarin @BlackstoneAudio #suspense #thriller #fiction #legalthriller #bookreviewers

Kaceey’s Review: Brutal…raw…  Be prepared for a deeply disturbing read! A dark story that delves deep into the topics of pedophilia, rape, and drug abuse. And Karin Slaughter is not one to hold anything back. She pulls back the curtains… exposing the gritty, harsh brutality of life.  Leigh and Callie are two sisters who’ve grownContinue reading “False Witness by Karin Slaughter @SlaughterKarin @BlackstoneAudio #suspense #thriller #fiction #legalthriller #bookreviewers”

Klara and the Sun by Kazuo Ishiguro @KazuoIshiguro6 #fiction #literaryfiction #sciencefiction #fantasy #dystopia #bookreviewer #bookblogger #AI

Susanne’s Review: Klara, I simply do not know how to express my love for you.   Though you are an AI, you are the epitome of what it means to be human.  Kind, caring, thoughtful, intuitive, insightful, observant, and benevolent, you are everything we should strive to be and more. Klara is an AF, anContinue reading “Klara and the Sun by Kazuo Ishiguro @KazuoIshiguro6 #fiction #literaryfiction #sciencefiction #fantasy #dystopia #bookreviewer #bookblogger #AI”

Femlandia by Christina Dalcher #christinadalcher @BerkleyPub @NetGalley #dystopian #sciencefiction #bookreviewer #bookblogger

Susanne’s Review: A World Without Men?   Truth Be Told, at this point in time, that sounds pretty good to me. Then the doors to Femlandia opened and all was revealed. Decades ago, a group of women banded together to form a women’s only colony, free from the rules of the states. Surviving off the land,Continue reading “Femlandia by Christina Dalcher #christinadalcher @BerkleyPub @NetGalley #dystopian #sciencefiction #bookreviewer #bookblogger”

Women by Charles Bukowski #fiction #classics #bookreviewer

Susanne’s Review: In Women, Bukowski as Henry Chinaski details a life lived to excess.  From sexualizing women to excessive drinking and gambling.  Pleasing himself is his only concern.  Vulgar, rude, and crude, Chinaski is his own man. This book is repetitive beyond all get out and will get on your every nerve and yet youContinue reading “Women by Charles Bukowski #fiction #classics #bookreviewer”
