review: the silent patient, by alex michaelides

The Silent Patient wasn’t at all what I thought it was going to be and I’m not entirely sure what that even was. It was recommended to me by a friend who listened to it on audio, so I followed suit and did the same. I think I have a million credits on Audible and I just keep forgetting to use them…at any rate. I would classify The Silent Patient as dramatic suspense with a...

captivated by you, by sylvia day

I bought the first book in this series, Bared to You, during a weather delay in the Miami airport. Loved it!

This latest installment does not disappoint. The book begins 6 years ago on safari in Botswana. It alternates between Africa and Boston–where Rizzoli & Isles are investigating the murder of a taxidermist. Often times, the flashback technique can...

top 3 books of 2014

Since this blog is primarily about books and food, I thought a ’round-up’ of my most fave reads and eats for 2014 would be a good start to the New Year. For today, let’s start with books–in no particular order: RAW This book falls in the ‘Totally Twisted’ category, but it stuck with me for a while. If you look past all of the twisted-ness of it, the underlying theme is about not conforming to...

Book Review: The Sin Brothers Series

  I FINALLY read the first two books in The Sin Brothers series. And I wasn’t disappointed. The 4th book in the series will be released in March 2015. Let’s dive in.   Forgotten Sins—In a Nutshell Shane Dean is clearly a trained killer. A highly skilled soldier, able to carry out any mission put in front of him. He knows how to interrogate a man to get the exact information he needs from him....
