Married Blind (King of Screen Book 2) by Morgana Bevan – Review by Rachel Moss

Married Blind (Kings of Screen, #2)Married Blind by Morgana Bevan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a good read! I was thrown a little off by some of the reality TV stuff mentioned in the book, it’s not really my thing, but besides that this was a really good book. The chemistry between Abi and Fin was phenomenal. I enjoyed their banter and coming together even if forced proximity isn’t my favorite trope. I didn’t feel like I missed anything from the first one, so this can be read as a standalone. I’m excited to read more from this author in the future!

Whispers in the Waters (Blood of the Fae) by Sarah Chilson – Review by Rachel Moss

Whispers in the Waters (Blood of the Fae, #0.5)Whispers in the Waters by Sarah Chislon
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a good read! It was a very descriptive book, especially for being as short as it was. While I enjoyed the descriptions, sometimes they were a bit much though and it made this story feel longer than it was. This book had a historical and fantasy feel, made more so by the formal language and wording used.  This was a good prequel though and makes me excited to read the next book!

A Dowry of Snails and Mud by Brittany Tucker – Review by Rachel Moss

A Dowry of Snails and MudA Dowry of Snails and Mud by Brittany Tucker
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was a really good read! I was pleasantly surprised by this one, and it kept me entertained throughout reading it. I loved Rhia’s attitude, humor, and just general self. I giggled several times just from her internal thoughts about the royals. For a book that has somewhat of a mystery surrounding it and some turmoil with the king outlying people, it had a happy ending! I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and would definitely read more from this author in the future!

My Pearl Heart by J.N. Sheats – Review by Rachel Moss

My Pearl HeartMy Pearl Heart by J.N. Sheats
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I’m giving this book 3.5 stars. I really did enjoy this book, but the characters and toxic relationships have me rating it lower. The “best friend” was one of the worst friendships I’ve ever read. I was wanting to throttle both her and the main character Jasmine the whole time I was reading this book. And the “boyfriend”? He was just as bad as the best friend. The only relationship that wasn’t toxic was the one between Jasmine and her assistant, Carmen. Other than the very blatant toxicity that had me raging at the characters, I did enjoy this book and it was entertaining for what it was.

The Husbands by Naomi Valkyrie – Review by Rachel Moss

The HusbandsThe Husbands by Naomi Valkyrie
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was a really good book! This author usually writes paranormal fiction, so this was a surprise getting a contemporary book instead. I really enjoyed having this one set in a non-paramormal type setting! It was a fast paced novel, in a way that not a lot of details were missed out on. This author usually doesn’t disappoint and this book was no exception! I would love to see more books like this on the future!

Ladybugs for Loretta (Loretta’s Insects) by Lois Wickstrom – Review by Rachel Moss

Ladybugs for LorettaLadybugs for Loretta by Lois Wickstrom
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a really cute read. It is a very informational children’s book about ladybugs. This is not a book for younger children, I think it would make more sense to older children. The illustrations were cute as well. I look forward to reading this to my daughter when she gets older and understands more about ladybugs and science and has more comprehension when it comes to things like that.

Underboss’s Retaliation (Sicilian Gods Book 2) by Via Mari – Review by Rachel Moss

Underboss's Retaliation (Sicilian Gods Book 2)Underboss’s Retaliation by Via Mari
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a very good book! This one picks up pretty much where the first one left off, and as it has been a while since I read the first one I did it take me a bit to remember what was going on. I don’t recommend reading this as a standalone, because there are a lot of recurring characters and events that pertain to the main story. This book was action packed, tense, romantic, and full of suspense as well. I highly recommend this book as well as the first one.

The Taste of Light (The Winemakers Book 2) by Giovanna Siniscalchi – Review by Rachel Moss

The Taste of Light (The Winemakers, #2)The Taste of Light by Giovanna Siniscalchi
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a really good book! It was very well written. It was a well woven story of hope, love, and dreams with some darkness thrown in there to spice the story up. This is the second book in a series but can be read as a standalone. Both books were really good, I’m not sure which I would call my favorite. But I do know this one was beautifully written and well crafted and I’m excited to read more from this author in the future.

Falling Home (Buckeye Falls Book 1) by Libby Kay – Review by Rachel Moss

Falling HomeFalling Home by Libby Kay
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was a cute second chance romance read! I really enjoyed the holiday vibes in this one, and the small characters were so sweet. I wasn’t too enthused about it being a second chance book because I don’t really enjoy that trope much but this one was really good. It was great to see the characters reconcile. This book was also very well written I thought. It was funny, emotional at parts and tender hearted. This is the first book I’ve read from this author but I would love to read more in the future!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was a really cute book! It’s perfect for little babies and young children, and if you have just had a child be prepared for the emotions because this one will probably get you. I really enjoyed reading this one and automatically thought of my daughter, because I hold so many of the same wishes mentioned in this book in my heart for her and her future. I really liked this story and highly recommend it!

Kamana Wanalaya for the HolidaysKamana Wanalaya for the Holidays by Susan Renee
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a cute read! It was funny and heartwarming. I thought it was kind of cynical at the beginning but the ending made the cynicism worth it. Even though the ending was predictable I still enjoyed reading this holiday, grumpy/sunshine story. It was well written, enthralling and kept me entertained for me the most part throughout it. This is the first book I’ve read from this author and I’m looking forward to reading more in the future!

Road to the Mansfield (Express Investigations, #1)Road to the Mansfield by CB Laurence
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a really good book! It was very well written, and was mysterious enough to keep me enthralled throughout the whole thing. I really enjoyed the scene the author set up, and to me the beginning was a little reminiscent of Where The Crawdads Sing. The imagery throughout the book was really good. I also enjoyed the multiple POVs in this book and the twist at the end was exceptional. I’m excited to see where this series goes from here!

Murder on oak streetMurder on oak street by I. M. Foster
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a really good book! While the mystery was fairly predictable in my opinion, it was well written and enthralling enough to catch my attention and hold it. I enjoyed the characters and I felt like the author did a good job keeping it historically accurate while also making the book easy to read. It didn’t feel like a quick read to me, but nevertheless I still enjoyed it and will definitely be checking out more books from this author in the future!

Amaleigha Loves a Good Story by Janice Pratt – Review by Rachel Moss

Amaleigha Loves a Good StoryAmaleigha Loves a Good Story by Janice Pratt
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was a really good story! For a children’s book it was very inspiring too. I really like the lesson inside this book that says if you have enough determination you can make anything a reality. My daughter is too young to enjoy this book, she wouldn’t understand the message inside or anything really, but I really want to read this to her when she gets older and can understand that she can make a difference in the world if she just imagines and tries.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a really cute book! It wasn’t very realistic, but it had a good story to it and cute illustrations. I think this would be a book that could make kids laugh. I would love to read this to my daughter but she’s too young to care or understand what’s going on. I would recommend this to any young child! This author hardly ever disappoints when it comes to children’s stories and this one wasn’t a disappointment!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a really good read! I was glad to see characters back from the first book. O really enjoyed getting a perspective from Austin, he was a great character in the first book and this one didn’t disappoint. This can be read a standalone but there are a few recurring characters from the first book. I’m glad I decided to pick these books because are they great books that made me feel all the emotions. I’m excited to read the final book in this trilogy soon!

The Daredevil (WaterFyre Rising, #2)The Daredevil by Nadia Han
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a really good book! There’s one circumstance that ties the characters together but for the most part this reads like a standalone so I don’t think you have to read the first book to enjoy this one. This book takes place in Iceland, and the imagery the author uses is just magnificent. I thought I was right there with them. I really enjoyed this story and the characters. It’s full of romance and will keep you reading and engaged with the story! I can’t wait to read the next book in this series!

Painter of the Damned (Painted Souls, #2)Painter of the Damned by Rob Samborn
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a really good sequel! I think this one was just as good as the first. It had the thrills, suspense, mystery and action all like the first one did. I’m not sure exactly which one I enjoyed more, they both have great qualities to the story that made it enjoyable. I actually missed this little historical adventure after the first book so I was very excited to get to dive back into the world. If you like historical crime mystery books, then these are definitely for you!

The imagery and descriptions in this books were fantastic as well, I felt like I was right there with everything the characters did and went. The chapters were also pretty short, which made it a quick read. This is the first book I’ve read from this author before, and I really enjoyed it and hope to read more in the future!

This was a really good read! I had a little trouble at the beginning telling the characters apart with the third person POV, but it didn’t take long to straighten out for me. I enjoyed the story and the plot, I laughed along with the characters and was immersed in the story. This is the first book I’ve read from this author and I’m excited to read more in the future!

Shadow Patterns of Melt - Book OneShadow Patterns of Melt – Book One by J.R.P. Fogg
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a good read. I was a little iffy with it just because of all the science fiction jargon. I love sci-fi, but sometimes the jargon just gets me and this was one of those times. Once I got passed the confusion I really enjoyed the story. I just don’t think I was in the mood for this particular one today though. I really enjoyed the characters, and it was a very unique story. I would love to give this another reread once I’m in the mood for science fiction again though!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a cute story! I was impressed with the level of imagery the author used for this book, so much so that I feel like unless it’s an older child reading this book, it would go over the top of many children’s heads. I really enjoyed how sweet the characters were, and the focal point of the story being nature. There is a good opportunity in this book to teach children about the changing seasons as well. Overall this was a cute story that I enjoyed reading!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was such a cute read! It was quick paced, and the characters were extremely lovable. It felt like I flew through this one. I loved the witty banter between the girls, and how fiercely they fight for and love each other. I loved the romance between Ryan and Lisa, it was extremely sweet. I cried a few times, and it was very emotional to me. I’m very glad I picked this one up and I can’t wait to read the next book in this series!

Borrowed Time by Lane Cohen – Review by Rachel Moss

Borrowed TimeBorrowed Time by Lane Cohen
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a good read! It was a little more science fiction than I was expecting, I was hoping for more fantasy but it was still really good. I think though, that the sci-fi threw me off, because I had trouble staying focused and concentrated on the story, and found myself zoning out a lot. That’s more on me, and I don’t think ibwas in the mood to read sci-fi, because the story was really good! It had a really interesting plot and went pretty fast. I just wasn’t in the mood to read that type of book, so I would love to go back when I am in the mood and see how much better I like it when I’m anticipating it!

I really enjoyed reading this set of poetry! It was easy for me to read, and I understood most if not all the poems, which says a lot for me since I usually don’t understand many poems. This went really fast too, so it was a quick read. I haven’t read anything from this author before but I will definitely be coming back because I really did enjoy this book of poems.

Better Gnomes & Gardens (Mysty Haven Mystery Book 1) by Casey Cardel – Review by Rachel Moss

Better Gnomes & Gardens (Mysty Haven Mystery)Better Gnomes & Gardens by Casey Cardel
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a good read story! I really liked the story and enjoyed the characters. It was a very interesting cozy mystery, that centers around Fantasy characters. I laughed while reading this book, and was easily lost in the easy writing style that made this story enjoyable and easy to read. However, there was a lot of grammatical errors in this book, and some plot points that got a bit confusing that I felt like could have been explained a bit better. Because of that this book is a 3.5 rating for me. I’m rounding to up to a 4 because I really do like the story, characters and premise of this novel but with all the errors that were in this novel I have to say it’s a 3.5. But regardless I really enjoyed this book and am excited to read more of this series in the future!

Faultless Love (The Bennetts of Langston Falls, #1)Faultless Love by K.G. Fletcher
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was a really good read! It was enthralling and very well written. I enjoyed the angst, and the second chance romance that was involved. It was emotional and just the combination of a Christmas tree farm and winery gave me big Hallmark movie vibes. This is a great seasonal read for this time of year and I highly recommend it!

Super EnemiesSuper Enemies by Lois Wickstrom
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book was an interesting read. The story is centered around two siblings who are at opposites with each other on play and other things. Almost like an opposites story. There is a lessen that can be taught to young children from this story but I don’t think the story itself serves as a teaching lesson. It was an enjoyable read nonetheless and I would read it to my child in the future.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a really good read! I enjoyed getting to go back, and kind of getting some insight into the events at the beginning that had such an impact on the main series, but didn’t get talked about often. So it was nice getting information on the tragedy itself. It also gives slightly more of an insight into the mafia girls which I really enjoyed as well. It was fast paced and well written too! I definitely can’t wait to read more from this author in the future!
