5 out or 5 stars

Starting Red I immediately started to feel my anxiety raise. Abigail gave me such an over whelming feeling of unease. That feeling quickly increased to panic and terror. When reading you can’t just simply cover your eyes during a scary part like you can during a movie. I found myself terrified to go on but yet needing to know how it ends.

Red kept me on the edge of me set and my heart pounding so hard, as if it was trying to leap right out of my chest.

Red certainly packs a haunting punch and will leave you completely filled with jitters. How it is even possible to deliver this much horror in a merely 51 pages is astounding!

Kelly’s writing will inject your brain with all sorts of new fears!

If your love is psychological thrillers, Kelly will easily become a new favourite.

A perfect read for around the Halloween season especially, if you are into that seasonal reading.

Enjoy!


And of course thank you all for reading.

5 out of 5 stars! – Incredibly charming!

I adore novels written in a past setting, exactly what I was expecting Courting Mr. Lincoln to be… since it’s based in the 1800’s, but this was completely different. Louis has written a book in the modern day, set in the past, yet reads as a genuine classic……Brillant!

Miss Todd is smart, independent and has such a strong knowledge of politics. Truly a well rounded young lady.

Lincoln’s also smart, determined and very hardworking. He has goals and is working towards them. Although he is missing proper manners and does not have the perfect gentlemen style, just yet. Lack of funds doesn’t help with that situation, but a great friend could become very helpful with that.

This is where Joshua Speed comes in. He is truly wonderful! (Spoiler… I think Speed was  my favourite character!). Speed is an incredible man, with so much warmth in his heart. Speed keeps a great pride for those he is close to, especially Lincoln.

Louis Bayard has created such a marvellous read! and I couldn’t be happier to have this wonderful addition to my shelves.

Courting Mr.Lincoln by Louis Bayard

When Mary Todd meets Abraham Lincoln in Springfield in the winter of 1840, he is on no one’s short list to be president. A country lawyer living above a dry goods shop, he is lacking both money and manners, and his gift for oratory surprises those who meet him. Mary, a quick, self-possessed debutante with an interest in debates and elections, at first finds him an enigma. “I can only hope,” she tells his roommate, the handsome, charming Joshua Speed, “that his waters being so very still, they also run deep.”

It’s not long, though, before she sees the Lincoln that Speed knows: an amiable, profound man who, despite his awkwardness, has a gentle wit to match his genius, and who respects her keen political mind. But as her relationship with Lincoln deepens, she must confront his inseparable friendship with Speed, who has taught his roommate how to dance, dress, and navigate the polite society of Springfield.

Told in the alternating voices of Mary Todd and Joshua Speed, and inspired by historical events, Courting Mr. Lincoln creates a sympathetic and complex portrait of Mary unlike any that has come before; a moving portrayal of the deep and very real connection between the two men; and most of all, an evocation of the unformed man who would grow into one of the nation’s most beloved presidents. Louis Bayard, a master storyteller, delivers here a page-turning tale of love, longing, and forbidden possibilities

The Overdue Life of Amy Byler by Kelly Harms

Overworked and underappreciated, single mom Amy Byler needs a break. So when the guilt-ridden husband who abandoned her shows up and offers to take care of their kids for the summer, she accepts his offer and escapes rural Pennsylvania for New York City.

Usually grounded and mild mannered, Amy finally lets her hair down in the city that never sleeps. She discovers a life filled with culture, sophistication, and—with a little encouragement from her friends—a few blind dates. When one man in particular makes quick work of Amy’s heart, she risks losing herself completely in the unexpected escape, and as the summer comes to an end, Amy realizes too late that she must make an impossible decision: stay in this exciting new chapter of her life, or return to the life she left behind.

But before she can choose, a crisis forces the two worlds together, and Amy must stare down a future where she could lose both sides of herself, and every dream she’s ever nurtured, in the beat of a heart.

Hurricane Season by Nicole Melleby

For Fig’s dad, hurricane season brings the music.
For Fig, hurricane season brings the possibility of disaster.

Fig, a sixth grader, loves her dad and the home they share in a beach-side town. She does not love the long months of hurricane season. Her father, a once-renowned piano player, sometimes goes looking for the music in the middle of a storm. Hurricane months bring unpredictable good and bad days. More than anything, Fig wants to see the world through her father’s eyes, so she takes an art class to experience life as an artist does. Then Fig’s dad shows up at school, confused and looking for her. Not only does the class not bring Fig closer to understanding him, it brings social services to their door.

As the walls start to fall around her, Fig is sure it’s up to her alone to solve her father’s problems and protect her family’s privacy. But with the help of her best friend, a cute girl at the library, and a surprisingly kind new neighbour, Fig learns she isn’t as alone as she once thought . . . and begins to compose her own definition of family.

Nicole Melleby’s Hurricane Season is a radiant and tender novel about taking risks and facing danger, about friendship and art, and about growing up and coming out. And more than anything else, it is a story about love—both its limits and its incredible healing power.

I needed more poetry in my life… And Let The Dark Speak was the perfect addition to my shelves.

Beau’s collection will bring all sorts of emotions to the surface. Floods of pain, love, frustration, happiness, anger and warmth.

Each piece is so beautifully written, it will leap right off the page and stick with you.

One I believe all should pick up, poetry lover or not. This may be the collection for you!

Absolutely intensely breathtaking!

Driven By Fire by Eden Rayna

Years of Piper’s life down the drain, when she finds her boyfriend in bed with another women. 

Angry and alone Piper finds herself on the side of the hwy ..on foot! Making her way to the small town of Fort McKay, Alberta. 

Brandon, a tech millionaire is fighting his own life battles. Decides trucking is the way to hide for the time being, until everything settles. 

Luck changes for them both when Brandon comes apron Piper on the side of the hwy. Worried for her safety, offers her a ride but knows there is little chance Piper will accept. Brandon follows her into town, not satisfied until he knows shes safe. 

Exhausted from being on the road and having an instant spark, the one time their eyes met. Brandon decides to spend a night at the same hotel. Before hitting the road again the next morning. 

Only due to the awful forest fires he finds out the hwy’s are closed and he will be spending a few more days in this small town himself.

Both fantasizing over each other and lust running through their veins. It doesn’t take long for the few small encounters they have to give them the push they need.

It’s clear they are meant to be together…… but how long will it take for them to realise it?



4.5 Stars out of 5

Wow!…. Hot, steamy, erotic, sensual, seductive. There are not enough words for me to explain how hubbahubba the sex scenes are! 

Eden knows how to write sexual moments that don’t become dry at any point! Not only that, the romance that ignites between them is so satisfying. 

Brandon is such a dream boat! I only wish I looked like Piper and was living her life in this moment!

A very wise person told me once…“Book boyfriends do it better”. I have to agree!



Thank you so much Eden for sending me an e-copy of your saucy novel to review. Brandon will always be a dearly remembered book boyfriend!

All Men Are Assholes (…And All Women Are Crazy) by Jordan West

“𝔸 𝕃𝕖𝕤𝕤𝕠𝕟 𝕚𝕟 𝕙𝕠𝕨 𝕥𝕠 𝕗𝕚𝕟𝕕 𝕝𝕠𝕧𝕖 𝕨𝕙𝕖𝕟 𝕖𝕧𝕖𝕣𝕪𝕠𝕟𝕖 𝕚𝕤 𝕒𝕨𝕗𝕦𝕝”

Don’t let the title fool you! This book is so much more than just some comical dating advice.

Perhaps you currently have an awful dating life, are in a dying relationship or are past those days and just want to know you are not the only one that had to endure these moments in your love life.

From advice to research to even an asshole and crazy scale, you also get a walk through of Jordan’s own personal love life.

4.5 Stars out of 5

I love that this novel is not bias towards either sex! Us Women can be just as much of the problem as men, even if we don’t want to believe it.

All Men Are Assholes (… And All Women Are Crazy) is a heart wrenching, raw, intense read with a burst of humour throughout. Jordan truly has a way with words.

I found this book to be very relatable to the majority of my relationships in my younger years. But Jordan’s were on a much deeper scale then my own, some of the things Jordan had to endure is angering…. or perhaps that is just the crazy in me.

Truly a strong, impressive women to go through all and come out the other side laughing at her past and ready to share it with the world.



“𝕃𝕚𝕗𝕖 𝕚𝕤 𝕒 𝕗𝕚𝕔𝕜𝕝𝕖 𝕓𝕚𝕥𝕔𝕙.”



Thank you so much Jordan for sending me a copy of your immensely accurate read! I enjoyed it incredibly much. This truly is a read for everyone to enjoy

5 out of 5 stars!

Absolutely sensational!

This historical fiction is dazzling and devastating all in one. Pam’s writing is absolutely incredible and her dedicated research while creating this masterpiece is remarkable. Not to mention her transition back and forth from past to present throughout this novel is flawless!

I adored reading from the three different perspectives, and fell hard for the characters! Each has their own warming yet heart breaking story.

Grace’s determination, Eleanor’s passion and Marie’s strength!

The Lost Girls of Paris pulled me in and completely absorbed me. I just had to know what was going to happen next!

Another heart-wrenching, breathtaking read.
