The story goes to Annah, who is Gabry’s twin sister that she was separated from when they were little girls. Annah is waiting for Elias to come back from joining the Recruiters. Annah […]

When I checked out the Nook again last week, I was unsure what book I wanted to read first. So I went to my Goodreads page to my young adult books to read area and searched through. I wasn’t really getting excited about any of them until I came to one called Past Midnight by […]

Saw several books on Tuesday night that I would be interested in reading. Even actually saw one in the young readers that sounded pretty good. First is Timeless by Alexandra Monir. Our main character is named Michele Windsor, who is from a famous blue blood family. She discovers her great-great-grandmother’s diary, and as she reads […]

Two new books. One I actually meant to write about in another post, because a friend reviewed it, and I’ve seen it sitting on a table at work several times. The other a teen book that I saw for the first time yesterday, and I actually had a minute to go back and read the […]

In my goal to read 5 books this week, which I barely made by the book I finished today, this was one I chose because I figured it would be a quick read. But now I’m behind on blogging! So here goes! As I read through the other reviews of this on Goodreads after I […]

I have to start with when I first started reading this book. I was sitting in the break room at the bookstore I work at reading about the main character, Allison Hewitt, sitting trapped in the break room at the bookstore she worked at. The name of her bookstore was Brooks & Peabody. The name […]

The funny thing about this book is that I had received an ARC several months ago I think, but it got put under some other books, I forgot about it, and actually picked up another ARC at the bookstore the other day and brought it home. It wasn’t until I was up in my office/2nd […]

There were actually some real hazards, or should I say irritations at work last night. But as my blog is about the books that I want to buy after working, I won’t go into those things. Both books I’m going to talk about in this blog are Teen books. Not that I got to spend […]

Well, I feel like this is the first adult fiction I’ve read in a long time. Wait though, I really don’t like using the term “adult fiction”. In my mind it brings up the idea of an “adult bookstore” with it’s XXX signs and showing an ID to get in. So maybe, just to help […]
