I read because I must. It's like breathing to me. And I love talking about books. But I'm also an Arsenal fan, a wine drinker, a music lover and weirdly obsessed with pop culture.

When I'm not on the blog, I'm scoping deals for a professional services company, hanging out with friends, or seeing some live theater.

The Royal We

My friend Karen lent The Royal We to me to read, so I expected to enjoy it because she had liked it. What I didn’t expect was to be drawn in and have such an emotional connection to the story. “American Rebecca Porter was never one for fairy-tales. Her twin sister Lacey was always the […]

Never Let You Go

Well, this is disappointing. I went to check my links to my review of other Chevy Stevens’ books, and I realized I’ve failed to review a few of them!  But you can see from my reviews of  Still Missing  and Never Knowing  that I am a big fan of Stevens. In fact, she has become my favorite […]
