5-Star Rated Titles from this Past Year
Don't Be Afraid of Accounting by Brad Horton
Before Autumn Fades by Christian Andreo
Dreamer of Destiny by Barbara Woster
Hard To Decide
I have read multiple books by Mary Higgins Clark and have enjoyed them but haven't ever read any books by Carol Higgins Clark and was curious to see how they would do writing together. Ummm...I'm kind of conflicted.
Mechanically well done, dialogue exceptional, plot believable and tense (in just the right places)...but for me, it was the character development that really shot this one through the roof. When you love and hate (Ramirez) the characters, you know the author has done what it takes to make them feel real.
A Thrilling Sci-Fi
Quick note to author. Don't know if you're aware but there is no table of contents in the Kindle version (that showed up when I read the book), but there is a "Table of Contents" header.
Too Many Perfect Protagonists. No Antagonists.
First, that had to be the shortest prologue in history (that I've ever read) and seemed absolutely pointless.
Very Well Written
With a rather unusual title and a book cover that doesn’t really make me want to pick up the book to read it, I was rather surprised by what met me when I decided to wade through this story.
Very Well Done
Received an ARC in exchange for an honest opinion, and that opinion is that this is a great graphic novel.
Brilliantly Mind Blowing!
Captain Jerome Sideris is sent on a solo mission to another galaxy to explore and establish the viability of certain requirements, with a Level 3 AI and the ship's cargo. A more detailed synopsis of this book couldn't ever come close to touching how brilliantly written and well done this book was without giving too much away.
Not What I Expected
If you enjoy exploring questions with your child, this might make for a good conversation starter for a parent with young children.
Not A Bad Read With Potential
There were times when I was enjoying the book, and other times I would shake my head because it was either dragging, boring, or cliche.
I hate writing reviews like this, but unfortunately, it needs editing again and the book cover is not very appealing.
Wouldn't Go Out Of My Way
Roped in to help with a bake sale for the school, several retired teachers end up in the vicinity of a murder. The main character, named Phyllis, can't help but ask questions and ends up butting into the investigation even though the police tell her not to.
That is always one of the first things I look for when I start a book: is the punctuation correct, sentences complete, tenses right, spelling good, etc., then it's on to the story.
Beautiful Illustrations and More
This book, as the title suggests, it is for children up to 1st grade, yet still provides information that goes beyond just informing about the seasons and discusses the topic on more than one page.
Love Others As Yourself
A lovely story, using the Christmas spirit of giving, to bless a family.
The reason that I'm not rating this any lower is because of two reasons only: mechanically, it's nearly flawless and the humor is extraordinary (I liked his five overrated things). Otherwise, it's not that great a book.
First, mechanically, it needs so much work as to be painful.
My goodness, but what a wonderfully written collection of stories.
I Wanted To Like This More
I was bored to tears with the shallow characters one moment and surprised by a scene the next. Sadly, I was hoping for more of the surprising moments, more depth, more...anything.
