Did you feel that it was outstanding or stood out for a contemporary read? Kara: Not really. I liked it enough to finish it, but it wasn’t really my thing, unfortunately. I didn’t connect with any of the character emotionally, and I feel I should have because there were some particularly emotional scenes that should have evoked some kind of feeling inside me, and more »

Book Review: The Female of the Species

When I discovered that this was one of the books that was up for grabs at ALA in Orlando, I was dead set on getting my hands on it. Not a Drop to Drink was recommended to me because I needed something different, something that was brave enough to go against the expected and the norm, and I ended up loving that book. Ever since, I’ve had McGinnis on my radar from that point forward. This was the first ARC that I read, and I’m so happy that I did, because this book didn’t dare disappoint.

THIS WEEK’S TOPIC: Ten Books You’d Buy Right This Second If Someone Handed You A Fully Loaded Gift Card With a pending book case, busy lives, and other hectic things happening (Pokemon), reading can sadly fall to the wayside.
