Damage Done

This book was well written and had my attention until the last couple pages. The subject matter is just not for me, I don’t want to put out any spoilers because it’s a big part of the book and explains a lot. Even though it was very realist...

Pretending to Be Erica

When I picked up Pretending to Be Erica, I was in the mood for something light and fluffy, and what I received was much more moving than I ever could have anticipated. Violet was adopted at age 5 by one of the most successful con men in Las...

The Rules

So, this one just didn't work for me. It's the same old story about someone hunting down and killing teens. This book starts out pretty well, but also falls apart pretty fast, too. The characters were uninteresting and it just kinda got to...
