Liked the premise and the fact it was set in the older West. Good vs evil played well here. The main character was a man with a past he could't remember, but he overcame the hard man he had been before.

Loving Cara
Loving Cara
Author: Kristen Proby
Genres: Literature & Fiction, Romance
Book Type: Mass Market Paperback
reviewed on + 204 more book reviews


I enjoyed what seemed like "a fated to be" romance between Cara and Josh. Josh had been two years ahead of Cara in school and had a penchant for gently teasing her. Enjoyable characters and their closeness with their community. Was not crazy with the spanking or sometimes thoughtless hurtful way Josh talked to Cara.

Inventing Elliot
reviewed on + 119 more book reviews


The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing." ― Edmund Burke

Elliot, a kid that WAS the victim of bullying moves to a new school for a fresh start. But the PTSD associated by his earlier problems is constantly aggravated by the even more insidious bullying in his new school. This time he's managed to avoid being the target of the bullies and is even invited to become one of the perpetrators. Does he have the courage to suffer the fate he fears awaits those who turn the bullies down?

Bullying is an important topic and it deserves thinking about but for most of its length this book is as bleak as they come.

I'd say that this is an important read but certainly not an enjoyable one. It's the literary equivalent of spinach. You may know that it's good for you but you still probably won't enjoy the experience of consuming it.

"From Convent to Pentecost My Escape From the Cloistered Convent"
reviewed on


Most people are so sure that this book is a lie, but really think about it. How would you know? This woman went through some very horrifying situations. Just because you know Catholics and their sweet to you doesn't mean anything. They are not the same people from the book. Not all Catholics are the same and do the same things, so once again, how would you know? She has her own personal experience and took those and shared them with anyone who was willing to read them. You can believe it or not but that doesn't change the truth. We may not know if it's true or not but there is one who does, Jesus. I don't know about you, but that's all I care about. If you really want to know the truth then pray about it. Ask god to give you a revelation.

The Goldfinch: A Novel
reviewed on + 385 more book reviews


Phew! It took me about 3 weeks but I made it through all 771 pages of this massive novel that in essence was about a young man, Theo, who lost his mother during a terror attack on an art museum in New York and who during the chaos of the explosion, was able to make off with the classic painting "The Goldfinch" by Fabritius. Along the way, Theo lives with a well-to-do family in New York, the Barbours, moves to Las Vegas with his wayward father, then back to New York to live and become partners with an antique furniture restorer, Hobie, who was the partner of another person killed in the art museum explosion. Throughout Theo's moves, he is able to keep the "Goldfinch" a secret and hidden away. While in Las Vegas, Theo becomes friends with Boris, a fast-talking schemer from the Ukraine who has traveled the world with his father. Boris is probably to me the most interesting character in the book and he plays a key role throughout along with "the Goldfinch" itself. Overall, I did enjoy the novel and thought Tartt's writing was eloquent; however, I think the story could have been shortened drastically. I just thought there was way too much detail although much of it kept me fascinated including details about the art world and antique furniture.


Some Girls, Some Hats and Hitler: A True Love Story Rediscovered

If you love inspiring stories about people trapped in Nazi Germany, you have to read this book. Very quick read; scary, funny and incredibly sad in such a slim volume. It is like reading a private diary. I highly recommend this.

Monkey on a Stick: Murder, Madness, and the Hare Krishnas
reviewed on + 172 more book reviews


This book was a fascinating look into the cult that was Hare Krishna. If you were born after the 1970's you may never have heard of this group of shaved-head, robe-wearing hippie types. They used to hang out in public places, chanting and begging for money. The group achieved a certain notoriety when the Beatles were dabbling in mysticism in the late 60's.
Because of power struggles within the group's hierarchy, violence and several murders ensued before the cult was dissolved.

Hell House
Hell House
Author: Richard Matheson
Genre: Horror
Book Type: Paperback
reviewed on + 7 more book reviews


This is the best horror novel that I have ever read and I see why it is considered a classic. The horror is great, especially because of the vivid descriptions. I enjoyed the characters, but the scientist who didn't believe in ghosts got on my nerves. It wouldn't be a problem in real life, but it bugged me because it is in a ghost story. There is quite a bit of sexual scenarios caused by the ghost who haunts the house so for that reason and the violence, it is definitely only a book for adults and mature teens. I was always wondering what would happen next, such as what ghostly happening would happen next.

S.A Vol. 1 (Special A)

I first watched the anime and fell in love with it. It's so much like the anime that I enjoy reading it over and over again. It's somewhat a reverse harem but more of a romance/comedy. A in the of cast of characters and school and you got one great manga!

Promise to a Dead Man (Avalon Western)
reviewed on + 7 more book reviews


This is the first western that I have read and it is a great book. The cowboy action, great characters, and the villains made this fun to read.

The main character Davy Nelson is a nice guy, but I do like that he will only resort to violence when it is necessary and it's usually to protect people that he cares about.

Return to Tradd Street (Tradd Street, Bk 4)
reviewed on + 3 more book reviews


I have read all 4 of the Tradd Street books and can say I found it hard to put any of them down..Karen White is a wonderful writer, I would recommend every book I have read of hers so far. All characters are so lifelike and there is romance, mystery, sadness and happiness in each of these books. Plus they take place in the south which I find very interesting.

Tweak: Growing Up on Methamphetamines
reviewed on


Nic Shef , in my opinion is such an overly spoiled, entitled brat. Sure, he may come from a broken home at an early age but these days that seems to be the norm! I really enjoyed reading this book because it gives you insight on this sort of "poor lil rich kid" lifestyle. He has life in the palm of his hand and yet he chose the "rig" in his arm. It gets slightly boring in the middle.. but once you get over that hump it picks up again! Now I know what it's like to be a drug addicted spoiled brat-- I would love to read a TRUE comeback story! Someone please show me a memoir by a poverty stricken drug addict that MADE IT and it clean, sober and prosperous without having to ride the coattails of mommy or daddy!
