Review: A Christmas Creek Carol

A Christmas Creek Carol A Christmas Creek Carol by Rachelle Ayala
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I loved this story. Christmas and Halloween are my favorite holidays. I enjoy holiday themed books and movies all year around. A Christmas Creek Carol was a perfect read on this hot summer day. As much as I enjoyed the Christmas aspect, the true story was Ebony’s story. I loved how Ebony realized the most important things in life are not physical things. Too often we get lost in being a success and having the perfect life. This story is the reminder that you can have everything; success, the ultimate home, the right accessories of the perfect life but if you don’t make time for the people you love you truly have nothing. A quick read that captures your imagination, it is perfect for a rainy spring afternoon, a sultry summer day when Christmas seems so far away, a chilly fall day or a needed moment of relaxation after Christmas shopping.

I was given an ARC by the author for review purposes.

Review: Lucky in Laguna

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow! Reality show spotlight. I enjoyed this story. If you ever wanted to know how real these shows are, this is the story for you. I don’t want to go into the story so it will be enjoyable for you to read. I liked the characters. Loved the plot. This would make an awesome beach book, or rainy afternoon book. It is face paced, good for older teens and up.

Review: The Seventh Day

The Seventh Day The Seventh Day by A.E. Watson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

It was okay. Time flow was an issue for me. I would have like some consistency there. The heroine was another issue. She came out strong but became weaker and weaker. This, though, could have been done on purpose. The author might have been trying to show us how the mind alters thing in a crisis. If you don’t go in expecting The Hunger Games or The Walking Dead you will enjoy the book more. It was different enough to grab my attention. I will read the next one in the series.

Review: Locke & Key, Vol. 1: Welcome to Lovecraft

Locke & Key, Vol. 1: Welcome to Lovecraft Locke & Key, Vol. 1: Welcome to Lovecraft by Joe Hill
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I enjoyed this book on audible awhile back. I did not realize what I was missing. I love the artwork! I have not been a fan of graphic novels. I read comic books as a kid, of course. I loved them. But I always thought of them as a different category from books. I love watching a book unfold in my mind. Especially horror books. Nothing is more terrifying than what your mind conjures up. It knows exactly what your fears are. This graphic novel, though, comes mighty close. I’m definitely looking forward to the rest of the series.
