Blacktop Wasteland by S.A. Cosby @blacklionking73 @Flatironbooks #blacktopwasteland #fiction #crimedrama #libraryloan #bookreviewer #bookblogger

Susanne’s Review: A Slow Burning Character Driven Suspenseful Crime Drama that will have you holding onto the seat of your pants! What can I say about Blacktop Wasteland that hasn’t already been said?!  The writing here is stellar and the characterizations are brilliant.   Beauregard (Bug) Montage is a character with heart.  A family man whoContinue reading “Blacktop Wasteland by S.A.

She’s known for taking no prisoners.  Little does she know she’s about to get played and the game is a deadly one. The minute she takes a call from a man named Bernie, everything changes and IContinue reading “A Caller’s Game by J.D.

Don’t Believe It by Charlie Donlea #CharlieDonlea #audiobook #libraryloan #thriller #suspense #bookreview

Susanne’s Review: Twisty, Turny, and Captivating.. yet, this novel left me unsatisfied.  The reason, however, isn’t what you think! What I’ve come to realize through the onslaught of documentaries and podcasts about murders and crimes that have taken place over the years is that I’m not a fan of either, thus I didn’t love thisContinue reading “Don’t Believe It by Charlie Donlea #CharlieDonlea #audiobook #libraryloan #thriller #suspense #bookreview”

Fallen by Linda Castillo @LindaCastillo11 @MinotaurBooks #kathleenmcinerney #mystery #suspense #bookbloggers

Susanne’s Review: Kate Burkholder is back in “Fallen” by Linda Castillo! Lucky for me, I got my hands on the audiobook narrated by the fabulous Kathleen McInerney, which allowed me to brush up on my Pennsylvania Dutch – which as Kaceey describes it, allowed me to be multilingual, lol!). (For example, Good Morning: Guder Mariye;Continue reading “Fallen by Linda Castillo @LindaCastillo11 @MinotaurBooks #kathleenmcinerney #mystery #suspense #bookbloggers”

The Break-Up Book Club by Wendy Wax @Wendy_Wax @BerkleyPub #BlogTour #womensfiction #bookreviewers #bookblogger

Kaceey’s Review: With the help of your friends, you can get through just about anything! This is a touching read of friendship, loss, and heartache, but most importantly the strength to finding oneself and move on. Told through the perspective of four very different and distinct voices. You are taken on a journey as theyContinue reading “The Break-Up Book Club by Wendy Wax @Wendy_Wax @BerkleyPub #BlogTour #womensfiction #bookreviewers #bookblogger”

The Testaments by Margaret Atwood @MargaretAtwood #dystopia #gilead #pearlgirls #handmaidstale #fiction #bookreview

Susanne’s Review: A Return to Gilead in “The Testaments”: It’s both Insightful and Frightening and it takes place 15 years after “The Handmaid’s Tale.” Who holds the power in Gilead?  It’s the Aunts of course! Why should I be surprised?  After all, Aunt Lydia is terrifying and she has more power than anyone else.   InContinue reading “The Testaments by Margaret Atwood @MargaretAtwood #dystopia #gilead #pearlgirls #handmaidstale #fiction #bookreview”

Life’s Too Short by Abby Jimenez @AuthorAbbyJim @GrandCentralPub #forever #romcom #fiction #bookreview

Kaceey’s Review: This was one of my most anticipated reads for this year! I absolutely loved the previous two books by this author and had been sitting on the edge of my seat waiting for this newest release by Abby Jimenez. Maybe my expectations were too high? Maybe when you want something so badly itContinue reading “Life’s Too Short by Abby Jimenez @AuthorAbbyJim @GrandCentralPub #forever #romcom #fiction #bookreview”

The Nickel Boys by Colson Whitehead @colsonwhitehead #fiction #historical fiction #literaryfiction #bookreviewer

Susanne’s Review: Utterly Gut-Wrenching! A fictitious novel about a real reformatory school in Florida that existed in the Jim Crow era, “The Nickel Boys” broke my heart.  I think perhaps it broke the heart of everyone who read this book before me and I will hazard a guess that it will break the hearts ofContinue reading “The Nickel Boys by Colson Whitehead @colsonwhitehead #fiction #historical fiction #literaryfiction #bookreviewer”

A Million Things by Emily Spurr @SpurrEmily @BerkleyPub @NetGalley #fiction #bookblogger #bookreview

Kaceey’s Review: All the stars ⭐️  I went into this read rather blind, as I do for most of my reads.   At first, I was shocked, wondering what I had signed up for. But intrigued enough to continue. Midway I was so captivated I could not put it down. Thinking about the characters any timeContinue reading “A Million Things by Emily Spurr @SpurrEmily @BerkleyPub @NetGalley #fiction #bookblogger #bookreview”
