A Book About Giving Abused Women Power That You Will Never Forget Giving the Devil His Due (Charity Anthology) by The Pixel Project

Wow… What a book. Giving the Devil His Due is haunting, morbidly interesting, graphic, important, fascinating. It hooks you like a disaster you can’t look away from – it’s scary, but also you just kind of need to know. I can’t quite describe it, but it’s just my lack of words. Because it left me speechless – and I mean…

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to write a book with someone else? I know I have. And now that I think about it, I’m not so sure why I’ve always thought of that as mind-blowingly complicated – after all, many of us work in teams. A lot of the work we do is divided between individuals,…

Finally, Book #2 In A Series I’m Incredibly Addicted To Son of Secrets (The Indigo Chronicles #2) by N.J. Simmonds

There are books you read that engross you so much, you develop these love-hate relationships with the characters. You toss these books over the room when that silly ass girl does this or that. You curse under your breath in a coffee shop when that guy won’t follow through with his romantic intentions despite all sanity and reason pointing to…

A Brilliant Dystopian Fantasy With A Twist That Uncovers The Dark Nature Of Humanity The Sundered by Ruthanne Reid, ★★★★★ 5 stars

Sometimes we value things based on how much they cost us. We can’t really help it, it’s simply psychology, or maybe its societal. But that’s not always right, and it certainly wasn’t when it came to The Sundered. Because I got this book as a freebie or review copy before I even blogged, and let it sit unread on my…

Traveling From Your Living Room: Another Camino de Santiago Memoir I Loved Walking to the End of the World: A Thousand Miles on the Camino De Santiago by Beth Jusino

I finished Walking to the End of the World several weeks ago, but I am still feeling a reading hangover, so to say – I still wish I was reading it. I keep catching myself stuck in how I imagined the places the book talked about the the way it made me feel. It’s like I almost went there myself.…

Everything We Don’t Know About Ableism It's Just Nerves by Kelly Davio

Check out on Goodreads Get at Book Depository ★★★★☆ 4 stars When I was offered the chance to review this nonfiction collection about disability, I just couldn’t say no. Bring on these topics. I gotta make dialogue about this. And I was not wrong to accept. It’s Just Nerves is a very short and sobering experience. It’s not my first…
