Fallen

Each book in this series makes me love it more. This book starts out with Special Agent Faith Mitchell of the Georgia Bureau of Investigations (GBI) leaving a training that ran an hour and a half late. She’s on her way to pick up her infant daughter from […]

Snatched

This fast-paced short story was an amazing read. Amanda Wagner, Deputy Director of the Georgia Bureau of Investigations, has been threatening Special Agent Will Trent with the worst assignment ever for most of this book series – monitoring the public toilets at the local airport for men cruising […]

Broken

Karin Slaughter has done it again! I never manage to get to sleep on time when I’m reading one of her books. As usual, this one kept me up way late into the night. Dr. Sara Linton is taking some time off from Atlanta’s Grady Hospital to finally […]

Trailer Trash: An ’80s Memoir

I received a free copy of this book through Booktasters in exchange for my honest review. I really enjoyed this book. Angie Cavallari writes with a witty and ironic sense of humor that I truly appreciated. While she is at least a few years older than I am, […]

Georgia Bureau of Investigations Special Agent Will Trent is back in this action-packed short story. This time he’s undercover as a bad-boy ex-con biker who happens to be waiting for a frozen Coke Icee from a temperamental machine at a convenience store in rural Georgia en route to […]

The Bluest Eye

Dragma’s Keep

I received this book from Book Tasters in return for an honest review. Dragma’s Keep is a fantasy novel that was inspired by the author’s experiences playing Dungeons and Dragons. My experience with Dungeons and Dragons is limited to an episode I saw once of iZombie, so this […]

The Night Olivia Fell

I was originally excited to read this, but by the third chapter, my excitement had completely dissipated. It felt like it was awkwardly straddling young adult, poorly written mystery, and romance novel. However, it didn’t do any of those genres justice. Some of the imagery was just sad. […]

Undone

I was hooked from the first chapter. Karin Slaughter has an uncanny ability to weave multiple storylines into plot without me even fully realizing what’s happening until it’s happening. In this book, a young woman is rushed to the hospital after being found hit by a car, and […]
