Now in My Bookbag: 1984 – Against All Odds, by Rebecca Yarros

I am thoroughly enamored with this story. It is well thought out and well written. Despite being written using flashbacks through the first part of the book, it flows well. The story brings a wide range of emotions and deals … Continue reading

This is a nice story with likeable characters. It touches on issues like phobias and family divisiveness. Nikki is driven by the need to heal herself, and Ansel is driven by the need for his father’s acceptance and love. I … Continue reading

Now in My Bookbag: Wet (Title #1 in The Beach Bag Collection), by Stacy Kestwick

Author Stacy Kestwick delivers. This is an enjoyable read, with a cliffhanger at the end that forced me to buy and read Soaked, the follow-up book in The Water’s Edge series, before I can move on to the rest of the … Continue reading
