Faking Perfect by Rebecca Phillips

Faking Perfect by Rebecca Phillips

Going in, I knew this was one of those “troubled teen’ novels with a girl who is torn between two boys, with little to no support at home.  I expected to be able to get in touch with sympathy or empathy for the character, and I was all ready to do so.

Book Review:

Lexi is in crisis – she’s been ‘faking perfect’ to make up for an alcoholic mother, an absentee father and no self-esteem. Continue Reading

Pixelated by L.S. Murphy

Pixelated by L.S. Murphy

Being the new kid in town is never easy: when you move from the city to ultra-rural surroundings, the culture shock is dramatic.  Such is Piper’s dilemma in the new release from author L.S. Murphy: Pixelated, a perfect story for teens and tweens!

Book Review:

Piper has Plans and Dreams, neither of which included moving to the middle of Nowhere, Iowa Continue Reading

AudioBook Review ~ The Tale of Chirpy Cricket: a Tuck Me In Tale by Arthur Scott Bailey

AudioBook Review ~ The Tale of Chirpy Cricket: a Tuck Me In Tale by Arthur Scott Bailey

Taking a new view on classic children’s stories is the perfect option for those ‘wind-down times before bed or nap times, or even just for some quiet family time.  Arthur Scott Bailey was a prolific writer of children’s stories that were based on wildlife and farm animals, incorporating a touch of science and a huge dollop of imagination into a story that entertains and enchants.

Book Review:

A newcomer to this series, I found that Donna Grant made it reasonably easy for me to slide into the story Continue Reading

Put Up Your Duke: Dukes Behaving Badly #2 by Megan Frampton with Excerpt and Giveaway

I’ve read both of the earlier titles in this series, and enjoyed them: Megan Frampton has a way of playing with the social conventions of the time while still giving readers a feel of the time, that creates an engaging and entertaining read.  In Put Up Your Duke, we have a nice twist on the marriage of convenience trope.

AudioBook Review ~ Hunted: Dark Protectors #3 by Rebecca Zanetti

AudioBook Review ~ Hunted: Dark Protectors #3 by Rebecca Zanetti

Today I have the ongoing review set for Rebecca Zanetti’s Dark Protectors series, newly released in Audio!  Karen White has narrated the entire series in this form, and I am loving the whole trajectory. I’m new to the series, but it’s engaging and entertaining me, and for fans of the series, the audio has that little extra oomph that will engender all of those ‘for the first time’ memories. Allow me to present Hunted, book 3 in the Dark Protectors series.
