No hope - Reyet Trap (Torch World #2) by Dee Garretson

"The story was told in a very descriptive language. [...] Dee Garretson is a very good storyteller. The only indication that this book is a YA is because of the main characters but other than that it is a very good sci-fi read not just for kids but for all ages. This was a good trip to outer space and I really enjoyed meeting Mags. " - iamnotabookworm, Goodreads (about book #1)

why people keep... Secrets? by A.L. Simpson

18+ "The emotions that are stirred up by the events in the story are so real. You feel every emotion whether it is fear, anger, happiness, excitement or confusion, each emotion takes up residence in your heart. A sign of an author doing their job well! " Robyn, Goodreads


twists and turns - Broken Series by A.L. Simpson

18+ "I can't recommend this book enough to everyone. The storyline is creative and has lots of twists and turns, it is also believable which is so important. There is a sweet love story, a hope for brighter and better things and lots of life lessons." - Robyn, Goodreads

hopelessly trapped - Tribal Affairs by Matt Dallmann

"The book holds a steady pace, never drifting into long-winded explanations or descriptions. Every scene sits and carries the action along. It's not always high-tension, but it's still grabbing and makes this a tale hard to put down. It's easy to get lost in Liana and Dahlia, and sympathize with them. The other characters do not share this same depth and come across shallow. But this doesn't disrupt the flow." - Tonja, Goodreads

clever and enjoyable - Quinn (Pendleton Petticoats #9) by Shanna Hatfield

"The story was great! I enjoyed the tidbits of history throughout it. The romance had me swooning and the danger had my heart clenching. I didn’t want to stop reading!" Shash, Goodreads

The Reckless Warrior fits perfectly into her collection of romantic hits!" - Kimberly, Amazon


the ultimate prize - The Weekend Bucket List by Mia Kerick

Does this bother you? - Wishing Well by Lily White

18+ "I was legit blown away. I really don't know what else to say about it. It was an amazing book from beginning to the end. So much so that I kind of want to start right back at the beginning and read it again. So much so I want another book so I can continue enjoying these characters. Therefore, it will come as NO surprise that yours truly is going to give this one two HUGE thumbs up." - Eve, Goodreads

is anyone willing to listen? - The Phoenix Cycle by Bob Collopy

As a reader of Philosophy, I really appreciated the thought that the author put into incorporating it so seamlessly into the book (i.e. Plato's cave). There were a few moments where I had to stop reading in order to keep the story straight, but the author definitely does a great job of tying it all together at the end. " - Valentina, Goodreads

It’s not just another “girl falls for a bad boy who breaks her heart” kind of story, but an actual novel with emotional depth and enough twists and turns in the plot to keep the reader guessing what would happen next." - Stephanie, Goodreads

Peter Clancy is back - Dark Water ( Peter Clancy#4) by T.W. Lawless

"Having been lucky enough to read all three books in this series now, it's pleasing to know there's a fourth on the way. If you've not been lucky enough yet to dip into these little gems, then you really should rectify that situation as soon as possible." KAREN about book #3, Goodreads

We all wear various masks for different situations. - Mask: Shadow (Masks) by Joseph VanBuren

"The writing is beautiful and rich with wonderful imagery, descriptions, and character development.
