My First Standalone Sunday February 6th 2017

Standalone Sunday is a feature created by Megan@bookslayereads where each Sunday a standalone book (not part of a series) that I loved or would recommend will be featured!   I love that meme as it takes little time to do (I’m always running like the real busy bee I am) AND I get to promote […]

Mists Of The Serengeti by Leylah Attar A mix between “Gone With The Wind”, “Out of Africa” and “Spy Games”.

5 “Taleenoi olngisoilechashur. We are all connected.” Stars   ♥ The Blurb ♥ And just like that, in an old red barn at the foothills of Mount Kilimanjaro, I discovered the elusive magic I had only ever glimpsed between the pages of great love stories. It fluttered around me like a newborn butterfly and settled […]

The Road to Enchantment by Kaya McLaren A beautiful story about growing up, finding roots and belonging

 4 to 4,5 stars   An ARC has been kindly given by St Martin’s Press via NetGalley.com in exchange for an honest review.   I did not know this author at all. I had never heard of her via my Goodreads friends or any Amazon recommendation or anything.  The book caught my attention with its […]

The Hard Count by Ginger Scott. Super emotional sport’s romance!!!

4,5 stars ON SALE on AMAZON 01/23/2017   Link to Amazon and sampler   This book is about so many things it’s amazing how the author treated them all without being just too much but rather flowing so effortlessly one into another. It’s about football of course but it’s also about family and prejudice. It’s […]

Full Tilt by Emma Scott. You’ll be a sobbing mess I can promise you but it’s sooooo worth it!

5 « you’ll need tissues » stars   If I had a limited choice of words to encapsulate this book it would be: beautiful, fragile, terrible, tender, poetic and sad.   The main characters were beautiful inside and outside. Emma Scott has once more created very endearing heroes, people you can easily relate to because they have […]

Wolfsong by TJ Klune… This book gutted me and I’m usually not in M/M romance. A gem!

6 howling/singing stars ! Another of my “little gem”. Another book I’d like EVERYONE TO GIVE IT A CHANCE because it’s just SO BEAUTIFUL!!!   This book simply gutted me. I was overwhelmed with so many emotions… I’ll try not to quote too much from the book but this will be very, very hard as I […]

The Traveling Man by Jane Harvey-Berrick

I’m BEGGING YOU: please, please READ THIS GORGEOUS BOOK! Simply beautiful. It deserves much more than 5 stars. I read “The End” and my finger […]

From Sand and Ash by Amy Harmon

6,7,8,…stars!! “Confession: My name is Batsheva Rosselli, not Eva Bianco, and I am a Jew. Angelo Bianco is not my brother but a priest who wanted only to protect me from the very place I now find myself.”   Amy did it again: swept me off my feet and carried me into her world. If […]

Making Faces by Amy Harmon

It’s now been 3 years since I’ve read this book and it still remains number one in all the many, many books I’ve read. If I had to sum it up I would say inspirational and so, so beautiful! I love all the characters but my real hero is Bailey. Just read this book and […]
