I stayed up way past my bedtime one night so I could finish. When I was trying to find the words to describe my reading journey, I was having some difficulty in finding the right words to portray just how quietly beautiful the written words were. When this happens I usually re-read the book jacket for a spark and the word ‚Äútender‚ÄĚ immediately jumped out at me. It is the perfect word to describe this book.Read More »

<— This is how I feel about this book.¬†I have been holding this review in, waiting for pub day and I am EXPLODING with excitement that its finally out in the world!

5 STAR HERO:
It was the perfect rom-com that snapped me out of my reading rut. I DNF’d the 3 books I picked up before this…my rut was on a serious downward spiral, but I digress. I read it in ONE DAY¬†by alternating between audio and book; both of which I loved.

Author Bohjalian is a talented storyteller: you can tell how much research he put into the story and the result was a well crafted, thought provoking thriller.

I read most of the book while commuting on the PATH train and let me tell you, there was this one scene I couldn‚Äôt get to my office fast enough to wash my hands for what felt like 10 minutes.

Audiobook Review: Twice in a Blue Moon by Christina Lauren

Length: 9 hours and 30 minutes, narrated by Erin Mallon
Category: Contemporary Romance, Chick-lit

This was my first audiobook with Libro.fm and I am super thankful I was able to listen to it as part of their Influencer ALC program (Audiobook Listening Copies). I ate it up and finished in less than 3 days: which is no surprise as Christina Lauren romances are my jam.

This love story reminds me of when I was a tween playing with my Barbie & Ken dolls. After watching General Hospital with my mom (what is Sonny taking to look the same 20 yrs later) I would think up the most outlandish storylines of how Ken had to win over Barbie. Twice in a Blue Moon was reminiscent of those times: a bit over the top like the Pretty Woman love story but you still watch it, love it, and root for them every time.Read More »
