Book Reviews



























My reviews below are listed by author's last name. A separate page for Children Book Review's is here.

If it's an advance reader copy (ARC ) the actual review page will have further details in the FTC section. I try to connect readers to a synopsis, my thoughts, and links to the author, or photos from the galley packet. My hope is readers will find new books to love.
