Review: 4 Heart-Pounding Thrillers Written by Women

This year, I've been exposed to many amazing female authors, thanks to blog tours and some of the book clubs I am in. Today, I am sharing some recent thrillers written by women that I have read so you can discover a great new book or author! In all of these books, I am blown away with how insightful they are.

Quote Me Thursday: Quotes that will Make You Long for Autumn

Now that school has started (or is about to start soon) for the year, I have no more use for summer. I’m really for fall!

Quote Me Thursday: Jodi Picoult Quotes

For some reason, I just now discovered Jodi Picoult. How, I don't know; but in a way, I'm glad, because I get to experience so many good books for the first time now! The first of her books that I read was Lone Wolf, and immediately after finishing I had to e-mail Jodi and tell her how awesome she was. She actually responded to me within a few hours! I was so pleased. I honestly never expected her to respond to me, and her response made me love her even more. So, if you want to read some … [Read more...]
