Review: "The Memory House" by Rachel Hauck

Rachel Hauck is one of the best at writing time-slip (split time, dual timeline) romances. I love how the two stories end up intertwining ... especially in this case, when it was something I didn't expect!

Review: "Driftwood Bay" by Irene Hannon

Every return to Hope Harbor is like going home. Irene Hannon has created a wonderful town that's always a pleasure to visit—it's the hometown you wish you had.

Review: "Rescuing His Secret Child" by Maggie K. Black

Over the next several weeks, TLC Book Tours is touring several Love Inspired and Love Inspired Suspense titles. I haven't always enjoyed Love Inspired books, but I feel like recently the quality of the writing has improved drastically, and the descriptions of two of the books on tour caught my attention, so I decided to jump in! Today, I'm reviewing the Love Inspired Suspense title Rescuing His Secret Child, and in early May I'll have the Love Inspired title Her Oklahoma Rancher.

Review: "Justice Delivered" by Patricia Bradley

While I don't read a ton of romantic suspense, I've quickly become a fan of Patricia Bradley's novels. I've especially enjoyed her Memphis Cold Case novels, of which Justice Delivered is the fourth.

Preview & Giveaway: "The Memory House" by Rachel Hauck

Rachel Hauck books are always my favorite! I'm so looking forward to reading her new release, The Memory House, and I hope to have a review posted soon. In the meantime, though, check out the book information and a great giveaway!

Review: "Far Side of the Sea" by Kate Breslin

Over the years, I've read a lot of fiction set during World War II, but I haven't read much set during World War I. It's a fascinating time in history that I know little about, so I was happy to dive into the period through Far Side of the Sea.

Review: "We Were Beautiful" by Heather Hepler

Let me just say, the Blink imprint is quickly becoming my favorite publisher of YA novels! They are always on the clean side (no sex, maybe a minor swear word but nothing more), and the stories are so engaging! We Were Beautiful is probably my favorite Blink title to date, and it's definitely one of my favorite reads of the year (so far).

Review: "Fame, Fate, and the First Kiss" by Kasie West

Ah, Kasie West. She's become a go-to for clean YA romance, and I could not wait to get my hands on her latest release, Fame, Fate, and the First Kiss. (Well, I did have to wait because I was way down the list on library holds, but I didn't want to wait 😃.)

Top Ten Tuesday: Things that Make Me Pick up a Book

Happy Tuesday, friends! I think, maybe, fingers crossed, spring has finally arrived in Nebraska! At least these past two days have been nice, so we're starting a trend! Of course, my dad had to mention that the grass is growing ... mowing my lawn is one of the things I dislike most about home ownership. Ugh. Mowing time is, however, the one and only time I listen to audiobooks, so I guess I have that to look forward to. Silver linings, you know?

This week's Top Ten Tuesday topic is things that make me pick up a book. I didn't quite make it to ten, but here's my list ...

March Wrap-Up: What I Read (And Didn't Read)

Happy April!!! I'm glad to see April make its appearance ... surely it will be more "spring-like" than March was!

I'm continuing to build my bookstagram account (I've pretty much given up on recovering my personal account—you can read about that saga here), and last month I posted a March TBR picture. I thought it would be fun to revisit that pic and see how I did ... which is actually better than I expected! (If you've ever seen any of my "It's Monday! What Are You Reading" posts, you know that I'm terrible at predicting which books I'll read next.)
