BEST DAY EVER by Kaira Rouda – Review

BEST DAY EVER by Kaira Rouda – Review
Posted September 18, 2017 by Tammy in 3 1/2 stars, Reviews / 9 Comments

The nitty-gritty: A compulsively readable tale about the hidden lives of one married couple. Best Day Ever was just what I needed.

MAGICIANS IMPOSSIBLE by Brad Abraham- Review

MAGICIANS IMPOSSIBLE by Brad Abraham- Review
Posted September 12, 2017 by Tammy in 4 stars, Reviews / 23 Comments

GODSGRAVE by Jay Kristoff – Review
Posted September 5, 2017 by Tammy in 4 1/2 stars, Reviews / 14 Comments

The nitty-gritty: A bloody good, bloody brilliant sequel in Kristoff’s ode to the Roman Empire. Hey, let’s face it. This story is just bloody. Small, unavoidable spoilers for Nevernight, if you haven’t read it yet. Fair warning! There were several times while reading Godsgrave that I had to stop reading and ask myself, “Did Jay […]
