The Charm Offensive by Alison Cochrun @AlisonCochrun @AtriaBooks @NetGalley #lgbtqia #romcom #fiction #contemporaryfiction #mentalhealth #bookreview #bookblogger

Susanne’s Review: So much more than a Rom-Com! Have you ever gone into a book expecting one thing and getting something else entirely?  Well, that is exactly what happened to me when reading The Charm Offensive.  I expected an LGBTQIA+ rom-com, and what I got was a book centering around acceptance, identity, mental health, self-esteem,Continue reading “The Charm Offensive by Alison Cochrun @AlisonCochrun @AtriaBooks @NetGalley #lgbtqia #romcom #fiction #contemporaryfiction #mentalhealth #bookreview #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”

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”

The night Noelle Butterby gets stranded on the motorway her life changes in an instant.  As a blizzard hits and the road closes, Noelle starts to panic.  Once her phone dies things go fromContinue reading “Eight Perfect Hours by Lia Louis @LisforLia @AtriaBooks @NetGalley #womensfiction #contemporaryromance #fiction #bookbloggers”

The Other Passenger by Louise Candlish @louise_candlish @AtriaBooks @NetGalley #thriller #mystery #fiction #blogtour #bookreviewers #bookbloggers

Kaceey’s Review: Jamie has taken a job somewhat below his skill set (at least his partner Clare thinks so). All the same, Jamie is happy working the cafe with not a care in the world. Well, except his commute. But that’s about to change! Jamie and Clare befriend a young couple Kit and Melia hopingContinue reading “The Other Passenger by Louise Candlish @louise_candlish @AtriaBooks @NetGalley #thriller #mystery #fiction #blogtour #bookreviewers #bookbloggers”

Six Weeks to Live by Catherine McKenzie @AtriaBooks @NetGalley #suspense #bookreview #bookblogger

Kaceey’s Review: I had such high hopes for this book.  I love this author, and the premise sounded so good. But it just didn’t work (for me)…at all. Jennifer just got the dreaded news. She is dying from cancer. A glioblastoma. One of the most aggressive of all Cancers. She is given six weeks toContinue reading “Six Weeks to Live by Catherine McKenzie @AtriaBooks @NetGalley #suspense #bookreview #bookblogger”

The Last Thing to Burn by Will Dean @willrdean @AtriaBooks #suspense

Kaceey’s Review: The Last Thing To Burn Absolutely unputdownable! From page one I was pulled in and finished this amazing read in only a couple of sittings! Her captor calls her Jane.  That is not her real name but in her seven years of captivity it has become the name the monster uses to addressContinue reading “The Last Thing to Burn by Will Dean @willrdean @AtriaBooks #suspense”

And Every Morning The Way Home Gets Longer and Longer by Fredrik Backman

Susanne’s Review: Fredrik Backman: You brought me to my knees. This novella had me sobbing, smiling, laughing and in bewildered awe of the beautiful words that you are able to write so melodically on a page. You capture emotion between characters so exquisitely. In this incredible novella, Grandpa and Noahnoah (his grandson) have a veryContinue reading “And Every Morning The Way Home Gets Longer and Longer by Fredrik Backman”

Beartown and Us Against You by Fredrik Backman

Susanne’s Reviews: Beartown Fredrik Backman: You’ve left me drained, almost completely bereft of words. This is a novel, unlike any of your others, yet it’s so full of heart and emotion that we the readers know emphatically that it is yours. And after the last words have sunk into my soul, I can emphatically say,Continue reading “Beartown and Us Against You by Fredrik Backman”
