I‘m a very avid reader and I leave reviews for every book I read unless it‘s a very bad book. I don‘t like to leave ones that may hurt the author‘s feelings. I also listen to music while I read. I pop in my earbuds and tune out everything and get lost in a good book. I love books that make me feel emotions. All emotions.

The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue by V. E. Schwab

This is hands down one of the best books I have ever read. It's a bit different but oh so good. A magical experience for the mind. A love story for the soul. I don't say soul lightly either. I story of hope. A story of “Not forgetting.“ A story about a girl. Then a boy. And the deals they made.

Happiness Falls by Angie Kim

This is a somewhat hard book for me to review. The reason being that I found it infuriatingly aggravating and intensely frustrating in places. That being said it's a great story. Just getting from point A to point B seemed to take forever...

I've read and loved several of this author's books now and would not have believed it. I'm not one to enjoy this genre. Or so I thought. I actually find myself looking forward to reading them. They really take me away from everything. Into a world of magic. Not always good magic but also not bad magic. Just a divergent from the other books I enjoy.

Life, Loss, And Puffins

This is such a good book. I've never been disappointed in a book by this author. Her books leave you feeling so much better. There is always a life lesson in them and many tears on the journey between the pages.

In this book I went all the way to Canada. A trip I'll never forget. In the bitter cold to see the aurora borealis.

I've had a lot of firsts this year. First time reads that is. Another new to me author that I will be looking out for. This book was great.

This is a dark story but it has a lot of things that I didn't expect. From fear to laughter to holding my breath. Yes there is a serial killer out there murdering teen boys. Cutting them open. Yes the killer is evil to the core.

The Underground Library

I can't believe this is my first book by this author. It was excellent. Very well written and researched. Based on a true story. One that I had no idea existed. To move a library underground was such a great thing to do. It helped people who did not have access to it before. And there is the fact that it was bombed and needed to be moved....
One of the best I've read this year.

This book takes on another ride with the Faes. You get get to know a bit more about each character. More about their lives, fears, and loves. More about their strengths and weaknesses. More about their truths.

All We Were Promised

This is such a beautifully written story. Yes it's filled with lots of sadness and angst. It has a lot in it that might make you feel uncomfortable. It might even teach you something. It has all the things that I love in a good historical novel. It's emotional. Heartwarming in many ways. The way these women stood together to fight for one of them, and for each other.
