Book View: Unwind

Book View: Unwind

First of all, I loved the different points of view in Unwind. Seeing the world from different perspectives gave a fuller meaning to everything that was happening. I loved the way the world unwound itself in the story. It throws us right into the drama and then slowly explains why the world is the way it is. There was a ton of action, a hint of romance and a lot of intrigue as to what would happen next. Unwind is the type of book that keeps you reading until the end. I loved the use of music in this book and there are […]

Book Review: To All the Boy..

Book Review: To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before

Most of the time when I come across a contemporary romance, I think “I might get to this one day” and generally move on without a second thought. The title usually ends up in the TBR pile, never to be seen from again. Until my little cousin comes over looking to snatch books. I have to say when she snatched To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, I was a little surprised. Like me, she isn’t the biggest contemporary reader. I figured she liked the cover or something, and sadly, the book would probably end up sitting in her room collecting […]
