The story continues… find out what I thought of Part 2 of Aoleon The Martian Girl!
“A stunning novel of one woman’s attempt to outrun her destiny that is predicted for her, a destiny that pursues her as she moves from a remote New Zealand commune in the waning days of 1970’s free-love experimentation to the heady music scene of 1980s London” (quote from the back of the book). Find out what I thought of this book by Bianca Zander.
“Things You’ve Inherited From Your Mother rocks- like a small boat on an ocean of discontent. Hollie Adams’ debut is inventive, authentic, energetic and so funny I nearly peed myself!” – Cassie Stocks, author of Dance, Gladys, Dance

Lately I have become more interested in children’s and middle grade books. Most of them are a lot of fun and are something good to read between the heavy books of War & Peace and Brother’s Karamazov (not that I have finished either of those two books, but you get my drift!). When I was offered the opportunity to read and review Aoleon The Martian Girl, I decided to jump at the opportunity.
I don’t know about you, but I absolutely love Italy. I have been there once, and although I don’t really remember the trip, I remember I really loved Italy. The people, the language, the food, the wine, how can you go wrong? I also really love reading about Italy, so I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to read and review Bianca’s Vineyard by Teresa Neumann.
Losing a friend is always difficult. I am lucky enough to say that to date, I have not lost a single friend who is close to me. Recently, a friend of a friend of mine passed away. It shocked me! To think that someone who wasn’t even 30 yet lost their life. I can only imagine what it would be like to find out that your best friend passed away. I think I would be completely and totally crushed. Knowing that my friend is communicating with me might help heal me a little, but I think the loss would still be devastating.
Family drama. 1960’s Chicago. Need I say more? Find out what I thought about Last Night at the Blue Angel by Rebecca Rotert- a story about an only child of a single mother growing up in an adult world.
I’m pretty sure there are very few people out there who haven’t heard of 50 Shades of Grey, it has rocked the nation with its provocative story line and erotic scenes. Other books from the erotic/romantic book genre have a lot to live up to (Okay not really because I personally don’t believe the 50 Shades of Grey books were really great “literature”, they were good for a “kick” but not much else). When TLC Book Tours offered the chance to read Hotelle and Elle, I figured I should give some other erotic/romantic books I shot (especially since 50 Shades has spoiled this genre for me), find out what I thought below!
About the book: “In Leaving Everything Most Loved by New York Times bestselling author Jacqueline Winspear, Maisie Dobbs investigates the murder of Indian immigrants in London.
The year is 1933. Maisie Dobbs is contacted by an Indian gentleman who has come to England in the hopes of finding out who killed his sister two months ago. Scotland Yard failed to make any arrest in the case, and there is reason to believe they failed to conduct a thorough investigation. The case becomes even more challenging when another Indian woman is murdered just hours before a scheduled interview. Meanwhile, unfinished business from a previous case becomes a distraction, as does a new development in Maisie’s personal life.
Bringing a crucial chapter in the life and times of Maisie Dobbs to a close, Leaving Everything Most Loved marks a pivotal moment in this outstanding mystery series.”
