The Beautiful Ugly By James Snyder

Today I have a very heartbreaking yet very well written story to share with you! Given the subject matter as a parent, I strongly recommend ADULTS ONLY should read this! However, as I have stated on my very first blog entry it is at the parent/guardians sole discretion as to whether a child should be allowed to read the content of the books I discuss.

The Beautiful Ugly by James Snyder pulls us into a world where sixteen year old Connelly Pierce wakes up in a psychiatric facility. The staff is trying to get her to talk with them. However, she is not willing to cooperate with them. She then begins to tell the reader about her childhood and experiences she had to endure.

It is my opinion that this story is well written but as a mother I felt sadness for the characters but also rage for how Connelly was treated. I felt compelled to keep reading. Simply because I wanted to know, What happens next? I am grateful to have received this book via Goodreads First reads!

There is a second book in the series that I would be interested in reading!

Into The Abyss


Best Wishes Always,

Angel Baby By Richard Lange

Hi Everyone, I hope you are doing well! Today, I have an usual book to share with you! While it is not the kind of book I would typically read due to the subject matter. I was yet again pleasantly surprised!

Angel Baby by Richard Lange is about a woman named Luz who leaves her abusive and powerful husband Rolando. Luz is determined to see her daughter. Once Rolando figures out his wife left him he decides to enlist the best man he has to track her down and bring her home.

This book is the first book I have ever read where I was rooting for the main character as well as the hired muscle. This book had me feeling so many emotions at once. I found this book very difficult to put down always wanting to know, what happens next?

This is the first book I have ever read by this author. I would be interested in reading something else by him in the future. I am very grateful and appreciative to have won an advance copy of this book via Goodreads First Reads!


Best Wishes Always,

Wicked Woman

Slightly Spellbound By Kimberly Frost

Hi all of you lovely fellow readers! I have a wonderful book to share with you today!

Slightly Spellbound by Kimberly Frost:

Tammy-Jo Trask is half Witch half Fae who loves cooking and baking but food is not the only thing that is cooking! She has heated feelings for her ex-husband who was her high school sweetheart and a former football jock and a wizard who connects with her on levels no one else can. As if the love triangle was not complicated enough. She and everyone she cares for are thrown into a tailspin when a young woman shows up asking for protection from her step mother and step brother.

I LOVED this book! It is the fourth installment in the Southern Witch series. I am ecstatic, grateful, and appreciative that I received this  book via Goodreads First Reads! I will without a doubt be devouring the rest of this series! My only regret is that I had not heard of Kimberly Frost prior! She will be added to my favorite authors list.

This series is in the following order:

Would-Be Witch

Barely Bewitched

Halfway Hexed

Slightly Spellbound


Best Wishes Always,
