Review: Adequate Yearly Progress by Roxanna Elden

I worked in public education for twelve years and during that time I had a close friend who was a counselor in our Guidance Office. We would have lunch together every day and talk about how we needed to write a book about public education because people would never believe the things we have to go through on a daily basis.

In fact we stated keeping a list of things that would happen in our office each year and at the end of the school year we would go back and reflect on the year of weird things we had to deal with. The list was long every single year and the incidents increasingly humorous and at the same time sad.

When I saw this book was coming out and was written by a former educator, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it! Continue reading “Review: Adequate Yearly Progress by Roxanna Elden”

Special Feature and Q & A: Been There, Married That by Gigi Levangie Grazer

To say that this book sounds comical is an understatement. It sounds like it has all the makings of a great comedy about the crazy twists and turns that life can throw at you, especially when it comes to marriage and divorce.

I couldn’t squeeze this one into my review schedule for the month but I am thrilled to be able to bring you all a little bit about the book and something especially fun, a Q & A with the author!

This book is out tomorrow so be sure to check it out. It sounds so funny and it had all the glitz, glamour, and scandal or Hollywood and the rich and famous! Don’t miss it! Continue reading “Special Feature and Q & A: Been There, Married That by Gigi Levangie Grazer”

Review: An Everyday Hero (A Heart of a Hero #2) by Laura Trentham

Let me just put this out there right now, I don’t read a lot of military fiction or romances. While I love military history and have family that have served  and continue to serve in the military, it’s just not a genre that I ever think about picking up to read. Ever. No real reason why, I just simply don’t think of it.

So why now? Here is the shallow answer—I loved the cover. Sure the cover lured me in, but I have to admit I was intrigued by the summary and I love Southern fiction and thought this one might be a diverting read.

Plus, I love romances what can I say. There is just something so satisfying about a happily ever after that I just can’t say no to! That’s how I came to review this one and I am not at all sorry that I read it! Continue reading “Review: An Everyday Hero (A Heart of a Hero #2) by Laura Trentham”

Re-Post Review: The Winters by Lisa Gabriele

With the release of the paperback version of this lovely book, I wanted to take a minute and re-share my review with you guys! I know that many of you loved the classic story of Rebecca and this book here in a modern retake on that classic gothic novel.

I really enjoyed this one and easily gave it 4 stars. It had loads of atmosphere and all the gothic hallmarks that I enjoy in a novel. I also have a copy of the paperback version up for giveaway today on my Instagram so be sure to stop by and enter to win a copy!

As a side note, I wanted to say how much I love this new cover redesign! The bright red cover of the hardback novel is nice and all, but I thought the dark moody-ness of this cover, paired with the castle on the front really made it stand out and appealing! Absolutely love it! Anyway check out my re-share here to see what I thought of this book when I read it! Continue reading “Re-Post Review: The Winters by Lisa Gabriele”
