My Thoughts: While browsing my local thrift store, I stumbled upon a copy of The Girl You Left Behind.  After hearing such wonderful things about Jojo Moyes’ books, I figured I’d pick it up.  While it’s not my usual reading material, I found myself hooked on the story and the characters drew me in from […]

Historical fiction has always been one of my favorite genres and it’s one that I feel does not get enough love.  I picked up Crow Moutain because it had been so long since I’d read anything historical fiction and this one seemed really unique.  I was definitely right about that. Pros: Story:  The story was […]

I am pretty much the biggest history buff ever.  I have a very weird fascination with anything Nazi Germany related (probably something to do with my History minor) so Wolf by Wolf was added to my TBR as soon as I heard about it.  Ryan Graudin had been on my radar since I heard about […]

Why do I continue to do this to myself?  I swear, I think I just like torturing myself.  I knew better than to read an Alex Bracken novel without having the sequel in my greedy little hands.  Passenger is just as amazing as I’d hoped but my heart broke when I reached the end and […]

The Song of Achilles wasn’t even on my TBR until about a month ago.  I saw Nikki from There Were Books Involved reading it and after seeing her reactions to it, I added it to the TBR.  I didn’t think I’d get around to reading it for a while but I decided to just throw […]

Posted October 16, 2014 by Kaitlynn in review / 2 Comments

Graphic novels are quickly becoming some of my favorite things to read.  They tell stories so beautifully while also being really fast reads.  Boxers & Saints may be two books that total 512 pages but I flew through them both. Boxers tells the story of Little Bao, a young Chinese man who is tired of […]

Dragonfly in Amber, the second book in the Outlander series, brings readers back into the lives of Claire and Jamie Fraser.  This book just confirmed my love for this series. All the original characters are back in this sequel but it also introduces readers to a bunch of new characters.  Two of those characters play […]

After watching the first episode of the new Starz TV show, Outlander, I couldn’t resist picking up the first book in the series that it was adapted from. I’d heard about Outlander before watching the show but I’d never actually picked it up. I’m so glad the show gave me that final push to give […]
