Don't miss it!!
Loving Lilly (Lost and Found) - J.M. Madden

Loving Lilly by J.M. Madden is an amazing read.  Once I picked this book up, I couldn't put it down.  Ms Madden has delivered another fabulous, well-written book.  Her characters are fantastic and a perfect fit for the story.  Diego and Lilly's story is loaded with drama, suspense, humor and sizzle.  I totally enjoyed reading Loving Lilly and can't wait for my next book by the talented J.M. Madden.  Loving Lilly is book 4.5 in the Lost And Found Series but can be read as a standalone.  This is one of the best series I've ever read though so I suggest you read them all.  Loving Lilly is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

 

I purchased a copy of this book at a book signing.

The Better Story
Life of Pi - Yann Martel

Defiantly funny in the face of total devastation, but more than that, ever hopeful. I guess that last is the best part of strong faith. The important part. Inner piece and enduring hope.

 

Here's the deal: I'm an agnostic. We get roasted inside *grin*. I could go a long while about the difference between religion and spirituality, between faith in god and the faith in the future that makes you stubbornly plod forward. I wont. My mom says "there are no atheist in the trenches". I have no idea what an ordeal like this would do to me.

 

But here is the other side, the thing about being an agnostic: I can accept both stories. I can love and believe in the tiger, and I can forgive the killer boy. The tiger is the better story, but to me, disregarding the second feels like hiding from a horrible truth too hard to accept. Just as disregarding the tiger feels like the cruelty of denying absolution, or the company of hope.

 

Good book. The movie did it amazing justice, tight and beautiful and with lovely, memorable music, so I highly recommend it.

The Lake and the Lost Girl: A Novel - Jacquelyn Vincenta

What is up with the husband's of women who write for a living in this book. They are both demanding, violent and abusive. I spent most of this book with my fists clenched wanting to use them on Frank. A man who obsessed with finding out more about an elusive poet writer who hasn't been heard from since 1939.

This was a chilling tale filled with domestic abuse by these husbands and how these women dealt with their problem. While the deal with Frank and Lydia and their relationship was a little long in several places, I think the author just wanted you to understand the reality of Frank's obsession and how it changed him.

I stayed up way to late to finish this book because I just HAD to know how it ended! There was absolutely no way I was putting it down, I could sleep tomorrow. Chilling, suspenseful and tragic, I enjoyed this read very much.

Huge thanks to Sourcebooks Landmark and Net Galley for allowing me the privilege to read and review this book in exchange for providing an honest, unbiased review.

Hold on
Lost Love: A Second Chance Romance (Only Him Series Book 2) - Casey C Nicole N Cleveland C

This is the 2nd book in the Only Him series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader enjoyment, and clear of spoilers, I always recommend reading series stories in order intended.

 

Derek has come home to work out why he cannot move on with his love life.  When he left years ago, it was an impulse and he was racked with pain from rejection.  Coming back is either brave or stupid, but he needs to know.

 

Gio has no idea what to expect.  He has not seen Derek since that time so long ago.  He too, has been struggling with moving on.  Can they get it right this time?  Or is the pain of the past just the foreshadowing of the future?

 

These two so obviously belong together.  They can't even keep their hands or mouths to themselves!  It is a fine addition to the series.  I give this book a 3/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Another hit in a great series
Lost Lyric (Found in Oblivion Book 4) - ... Lost Lyric (Found in Oblivion Book 4) - Cari Quinn,Taryn Elliott

My favorite trope is friends before lover and Cari Quinn and Taryn Elliot with this edition of found in oblivion was one of the best. Ryan and Denver are great together. Having them lean on each other and their friendship is great. Can they help each other through their pasts and issues. These two together is great one of my favorite couples in this series. I also love the fact in this series you get to see all of the people in the band and here from the significant others. You get to keep up with the whole lot of them. Can't wait for the rest of the band to pair up and more books by this pair of wonderful authors.
