Moby Plays the Flute by Eeha Bhatt – Review by Rachel Moss

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a really cute book! I liked the themes involved, about patience and perservence and how to work at something to achieve goals. It had a really good story for a short children’s novel. My daughter liked the pictures of this one, but she’s only 1 so she didn’t understand the meaning of it or what the author’s point was. I can’t wait to read this one to her or let her read it herself when she gets older!

Into the Light (Moon Harbor Series Book 3) by Kate McWilliams – Review by Rachel Moss

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was a really good book! I wasn’t sure what to expect going in honestly, and I was pleasantly surprised at how much I liked this one! Especially since this is the 3rd book in a series. And while there a few references brought up that really makes me want to go read the first 2 books, this read like a perfect standalone. It had everything I love in a book. There was romance (the spice was definitely present in this book), humor, tension, mystery and suspense. This was also a quick read and I finished it relatively quickly. I can’t wait to read more from this series and especially this author in the future!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was a fantastic read! It was very well written, and the story telling was so vivid. It was a little confusing at first, but everything fell together eventually so it’s definitely worth pushing through the confusion at the beginning. I found myself having trouble putting this book down. I was in awe of the rich history woven throughout the story. I’m really glad I picked this one up and I can’t wait to read the next book!

Notebook Mysteries ~ Haunted Christmas by Kimberly Mullins – Review by Rachel Moss

Notebook Mysteries Haunted ChristmasNotebook Mysteries Haunted Christmas by Kimberly Mullins
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a really good story! It was fast paced and quick, and I enjoyed this as it was a very quick read. Enough mystery and suspense to hold you, while also being slightly light hearted because of the Christmas theme of the book. I enjoyed the aspect of A Christmas Carol that was used throughout, and I will admit that the end was fairly shocking and I was wrong about the suspects. I would also love to use the recipes that were included at the end of the book sometime!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a really good read! The pacing was kind of slow at the beginning but once I got further into the story it picked up. I really enjoyed the imagery of this one. Everything is painted so beautifully in the mind, I felt like I was right there. The characters were interesting and enjoyable. I was drawn to this book first by the cover, then the synopsis, and the story made me stay. I’m glad I picked this one up and can’t wait to read more from this author in the future!

Grave Digger Academy (Grave Digger Academy Book 1) by C.A. King – Review by Rachel Moss

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a good book with a great story! It was very fast paced, which I loved, except it seemed like with the fast pacing some things were rushed that could have been explained more thoroughly and taken some extra time to devote to. It’s like the timing was skipping around all over the place. I loved the story and premise, the storyline and plot, it just didn’t feel all that well executed to me. I was entertained though, and I would read thr next installment of this series.

Ashes (Modern-Day Fairy Tale Book 1) by MK Harkins – Review by Rachel Moss

Ashes (Modern-Day Fairy Tale, #1)Ashes by M.K. Harkins
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a cute read! This is a (sometimes morbid) re-telling of the classic story Cinderella. It’s set in a modern time, with a teenage pop star instead of a prince. This is definitely a YA book, you can tell mot only in the content but also in writing style. I enjoyed reading this book as it was different than other reimagined stories I’ve read in the past. This is the first time I’ve read this author before and I’m excited to read more stories from her in the future.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a cute and adventurous children’s story! There are two books in this collection, and both are fun and colorful. I think this is aimed a little more for older children, but it was still fun to read regardless. I like dinosaurs, so I really enjoyed this one and I can’t wait to read it to my daughter when she gets older!

Fatal Memory (Agent Red:Teagan Stone Series Book 1) by Ava S. King – Review by Rachel Moss

Agent Red: Fatal Memory (Teagan Stone, #1)Agent Red: Fatal Memory by Ava S. King
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I can’t lie. This book was rough to get through. I did get this one free on Amazon, and to me it felt like there was little to no editing. The story was good, it just wasn’t well executed. I feel like a lot was lost in translation. It’s like it wasn’t fleshed out enough. I really struggled getting through this one. I wanted to love it because the synopsis was very interesting but I just couldn’t. Maybe it was an off reading day but I just didn’t enjoy this one like I would.

The Letter Carrier by L.C. Lewis – Review by Rachel Moss

The Letter CarrierThe Letter Carrier by Laurie L.C. Lewis
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was a great read! It was emotional and inspiring. Finding out everything was based off of real experiences just made it more impactful. I’m very glad I picked this book up. I think this is a book everyone should read. One thing I enjoyed is the different perspective. A lot of World War Two memoirs and stories focus on the jews and this one was focused on France. Which was a different take than what I’m used to and I’m grateful for because sometimes it is easy to forget that other people were just as impacted by the war, just in different ways. Kudos to the author for this riveting tale. I can’t wait to read more from her in the future!
