Thrifty Thursday:  Shadow Sight by E.J. Stevens

Thrifty Thursday: Shadow Sight by E.J. Stevens

    THE PURPOSE OF THRIFTY THURSDAY IS TO PICK A BOOK WHICH WAS FREE (AT SOME POINT). Kindle freebie on January 16, 2016 Currently $3.99 at Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Kobo Overall rating 3.57 with 985 rating and 140 reviews   I’d been trying to read this freebie  for awhile and my instincts were correct; Shadow Sight is a worthwhile read. I think the strategy of lesser known or indie or new authors to give their first in the series away or at a lower price is brilliant. They are unlikely to be found in the library, unfortunately. Getting a copy into the hands of a reader like myself, who will not only appreciate it, and work to acquire more books in the […]

  Photojournalist Lucy O’Brien returns to Dare Valley from the Congo following a devastating injury. While she’s recovered from most of them, her optic nerve was damaged and her vision in her right (dominant) eye is still an issue. She’s not told anyone the details for various reasons (some better than others) but her best friend, widower Andy Hale, doesn’t waste time getting her to fess up. To complicate matters, she’s been asked by her mother to photograph a risqué calendar featuring too many people she knows to fundraise for cancer research and she’s not sure she can see well enough to do the project justice. This is quite a lovely story with some very emotional themes. It’s not your typical friends-to-lovers romance either as […]

  Read It, Track It Is A Way For Me To Track Books For My Reading Challenges And The Reviews Will Be Super Short. WHY did I wait so long to read Back to Buckhorn? Like Zoey, I loved being back in Buckhorn. Lori Foster writes great small town romances. I enjoyed reading about the brothers in the earlier books, that reading about their kids have grown up in these novellas is a pure joy.    


Series review of The Lost Stars  by Jack Campbell

Series review of The Lost Stars by Jack Campbell

Posted May 26, 2016 by Anne in Book Review | 1 Comment

     I got all but the newest of these books at the library as Kindle ebooks. These stories are in the world of Jack Campbell’s Lost Fleet books. They start  at the point where the Alliance / Syndicate war has ended and now the governments need to refocus and rebuild their economies. This is the same timeframe as the Lost Fleet / Beyond the Frontier series. Both series are a spinoff of sorts on The Lost Fleet series. The Syndics  are the “enemy”  of my beloved John Geary (of the Alliance) or are they? This is a fascinating look at things from another perspective. There are more details of the same events.  I love space opera but there are always politics.  The books are […]

    Read It, Track It Is A Way For Me To Track Books For My Reading Challenges And The Reviews Will Be Super Short. Damien Evans has been working undercover so long that he’s lost a part of himself until he meets Tabitha Martin. Together Damien and Tabitha burn up the pages of One Touch More. They are different sides of the law, Damien, because he’s the bad boy of the US Marshall Services and Tabitha because she’s forced to help her ex-boyfriend who’s a dealer in order to save her younger brother. One Touch More is another hot romance by Mandy Baxter. If you enjoy seeing a strong heroine bring the alpha guy to his knees and feel emotions he has buried then you […]

         I started reading The Voodoo Killings and because of finals week at school and work I wasn’t able to devour it in one night like I wanted to. My reading time just wasn’t my own and I hated having to put the book down each night. I took it with me on a road trip to my sister-in-law’s house in hopes that I would get to finish it but again, I had to talk to people instead of reading. LOL Then I saw it was released on audio so I requested it and was able to listen to the rest of the book on my drive back home (9-hour drive) and it was fantastic! The Voodoo Killings is a great mix of […]

     Dylan Royce is a former teen pop idol trying to transition into a serious rock musician. Between his manager and label, they’ve done a lousy job of making that happen. When Ariel Watson, his new publicist, takes over and he gets the chance to sub on tour for Riptide (a band he’s idolized forever), Dylan has a shot at being the musician he’s always wanted to be and the woman he’s adored from afar. There’s a lot to like about Dylan, especially considering he’d been ” handled” for so long. His situation made me think about all the young teen stars who struggle with similar transitions, being totally mismanaged in the process by recording labels. I loved his heart and selflessness. Ariel came […]

     When Naomi Carson was 11-years old, she made a horrific discovery about her father that forever changed her life and that of her family. She worked hard to put that event behind her and recreate herself through her photography. When she lands in Sunset Cove, Washington, it appears she’s found her final home. That is until her past seems to dangerously reemerge. This is now on my list of favorite NR titles. I liked how the story was presented, chronicling the important phases of Naomi’s life that helped shape the woman she became. Considerable time and detail was given for each, allowing for her to appear as a 3-dimensional character. Naomi’s relationships with the people in Sunset Cove gave the story texture and […]
