The Twinkies Cookbook: 85th Anniversary Edition

So the sophisticated side of me wasn’t completely sure about this book but I think it has some fun recipes for the family to make together or have fun with on the weekend! Some of the things in this sound a little strange and I’m not sure if I would ever make them but either way it’s a pretty fun book.

First of all, just let me say the cover for this book is absolutely beautiful and I think it fits the story perfectly! As far as what’s inside the cover, this story just completely blew me away. I’ve read The Woodlands series by Lauren and I loved those so I was expecting to love this too but it completely exceeded my expectations. I’m in love with Peter Pan so I was excited to see the different references and descriptions that made me think of that story. I was a little bit worried about the subject matter of the book because it deals with abuse. However, I think Lauren handled it perfectly and I found myself rooting for Nora and hoping that everything would turn out okay. I loved the way Kettle interacted with the “lost boys” and his relationship with Kin. I will definitely be reading anything Lauren writes. She was already one of my auto buy authors but this amazing book made me love her work even more.The last chapters just about had me in tears and when it ended, it left me wanting more. Like so many other people who have reviewed this book, I kept trying to turn the last page thinking it couldn’t be over yet.

Review for The Curse of Crow Hollow

There is a witch in the mountains, who some say deal with demons. She will curse anyone who gets close enough. Four teenagers decide to stay the night in the mountains and they end up too close to this town legend. Are they cursed or is there another reason they’re acting strange?

I loved the beginning of this book! The legend surrounding Alvaretta and the mystery surrounding the curse that these teenagers return with. I thought the middle of the book was a little bit slow which is why I rated it four stars instead of 5. I liked the southern style language and the narration in this book. I also really loved the ending, particularly the last chapter! Finding out who the narrator was one of the most amazing parts of the book to me!

Overall, I really liked this book and I would recommend it to everyone!

I wasn’t sure how I would feel about this book since it was more of an adult topic and I usually stick to ya but I loved it! In my opinion, it was the perfect psychological thriller. It makes you question your life and the people you surround yourself with. It made me wonder how well I really know the people I’m friends with. Ava thinks she has the picture perfect marriage to Mitchell until things start to change. Mitchell starts to change. At first, Ava makes excuses for his behavior, which I found to be a little annoying but at the same time, I can understand because she loves him. She became more of a likeable character to me when she became more confident and sure of herself. Before Ava can figure everything out, she ends up in a custody battle with Mitchell over the two boys. I won’t say much more than that to avoid spoiling anyone. As far as the ending…wow! I loved it and I wasn’t expecting it. I thought everything was summed up and concluded perfectly! Thank you BookLook Bloggers for providing me with a review copy of this wonderful book!

Review for Whenever You Come Around

_200_360_Book.1585.coverWhenever You Come Around by Robin Lee Hatcher

Rating: 4 bookmarks

This book is about Charity Anderson, an author from Kings Meadow. Charity leaves her Boise home to write her new romance novel and ends up running into her old high school crush, Buck Malone. Just by the cover, I assume everyone knows where this story is going. 🙂 I loved the friendship between Buck and Charity and I loved the setting and the overall ‘western’ feel to this book. The only reason I gave it four stars is I felt like the ending was a little bit rushed.

Honestly, when I requested this book I expected it to be a book that I would end up sitting on a coffee table and opening once or twice. My expectations were proven wrong with this book. It was really interesting to the decades of history and even see some recipes from certain times.  There’s some amazing photography in this book which just adds to the overall look and feel. Overall, I liked this book more than I thought I would and I enjoyed learning some things about the history of whiskey.

Review for A Sparrow in Terezin

A Hidden Masterpiece Series Book 2

I think I loved this book even more than the first one! The way Kristy combines the past and the present is just amazing. I don’t want to give too much away but the story tells of Sera in the present day and Kája in 1942. I love the stories and how they’re intertwined and it’s full of faith, love, and tragedy. I tend to lean more towards the story in the past but I think that’s just because Kristy writes it so well! The whole book and the writing style already appeals to me but since I love historical stories, I just like that part of the story a little bit more. Going back and forth between present day and 1942 will definitely keep you turning the pages as you devour both of these stories. Highly, highly recommend.
