Once in May (Nortown Book 3)
Once in May (Nortown Book 3) - Ofelia Gr... Once in May (Nortown Book 3) - Ofelia Gränd John first showed up in book 2 - Once in a Forest, as a shy jumpy individual and readers finally get to find out why he's so crowd/people phobic. He lives in a cabin he's inherited from his distant uncle. He barely leaves his home and only does so because he made up a rule for himself to at least go out once a week to the diner in town and have a conversation.

Zachary Fane is a drifter returning to his hometown because he's looking to finally settle down after traveling for so many years. When he first catches sight of the shy John he can't help but want to get to know him. But he thinks he's missed his chance when he didn't approach the skittish guy the first time and intervention prevents them from speaking the second time. When his friend and ex, Andre, urges him to seek out the owner of the cabin he wanted to buy. He does so just to see how the land is. Zach can't believe his luck when the door opens and the owner turns out to be the same guy he's been crushing on. But John doesn't make it easy for him to approach or get to know him.

I really loved this book. I found myself invested in finding out John's back story and just his well-being. I really wanted him to take baby steps to live a fulfilling life.

Zach was a very likable guy. I liked that he didn't pull punches and he was so intuitive to how to act around John. That he never actually really pushed and if he did he made sure to check with John. I do have to say I didn't like that he resorted to picking up and leaving when things didn't feel like they were working out for him. I'm not saying he gave up immediately but it kind of hurt to see him just pick and was ready to move on at the drop of a hat when he did give up.

The was very happy how it ended but I still hope the author will revisit these two down the line just to let us see how well John is and what's happening with Zach.

A free copy was provided to me in exchange for an honest review.

My Review


"Hart has taken it to another level…read this novel."--David Baldacci

My Review

My Prediction
Best Book for Movie Adaptation

New York Times bestselling author of The Good Girl, Mary Kubica returns with an electrifying and addictive tale of deceit and obsession.


In downtown Chicago, a young woman named Esther Vaughan disappears from her apartment without a trace. A haunting letter addressed to My Dearest is found among her possessions, leaving her friend and roommate Quinn Collins to wonder where Esther is and whether or not she's the person Quinn thought she knew. 


Meanwhile, in a small Michigan harbor town an hour outside Chicago, a mysterious woman appears in the quiet coffee shop where eighteen-year-old Alex Gallo works as a dishwasher. He is immediately drawn to her charm and beauty, but what starts as an innocent crush quickly spirals into something far more dark and sinister than he ever expected.  


As Quinn searches for answers about Esther, and Alex is drawn further under the stranger's spell, master of suspense Mary Kubica takes readers on a taut and twisted thrill ride that builds to a stunning conclusion and shows that no matter how fast and far we run, the past always catches up with us in the end.

My Review


In a heart-pounding thriller from one of the most innovative voices in contemporary suspense, a woman unravels the shocking truth about her parents, her past, and a life built upon an unthinkable lie.


At DeRose & Associates Private Investigators in Virginia, Angie DeRose strives to find and rescue endangered runaways--work that stands in stark contrast to her own safe, idyllic childhood. But in the wake of her mother's sudden death, Angie makes a life-altering discovery. Hidden among the mementos in her parents' attic is a photograph of a little girl, with a code and a hand-written message on the back: "May God forgive me." 


Angie has no idea what it means or how to explain other questionable items among her mother's possessions. Her father claims to know nothing.


Could Angie have a sister or other relative she was never told about? Bryce Taggart, the US Marshal working with her agency, agrees to help Angie learn the fate of the girl in the photograph. But the lies she and Bryce unearth will bring her past and present together with terrifying force.


And everything she cherishes will be threatened by the repercussions of one long-ago choice--and an enemy who will kill to keep a secret hidden forever.

[REVIEW] Fairies by Yoshitaka Amano
Fairies by Yoshitaka Amano(May 3, 2006) Hardcover - Yoshitaka Amano

Gorgeous, and at times slightly grotesque, illustrations. Most of them did possess a dream-like quality that I enjoyed.

The text consisted of tidbits of poetry and short stories about the fairy creature featured in the illustration. Not particularly remarkable.

Devil May Care (Butcher Boys Book 3) - Max Henry

I started this book with trepidition, after finishing Devil on Your Back, the last person I wanted to read about was Sawyer.... & BAM Max hits us with Sawyer. I'm so glad I read this though, once I started I couldn't stop. Sawyer was a character I found I didn't care much for, without going into details & ruining it for you, I'll just say he wasn't a character you were made to love... But having just finished reading how Sawyer became what he is, the insight of how he lost himself, then the turning point on how he starts to get his life back..... all I can say is... I NEED MORE SAWYER!!

Seriously Max has outdone herself, my only wish?? I now need more Sawyer! I NEED to know how he fares, if he's able to escape the hell inside himself. Please don't stop Max, I'm in LOVE with your dark writing style.
