Haunted Souls by Kathryn Knight
Haunted Souls - Kathryn Knight

This book dragged me in on page one and didn't let me go until the final period on the last page. I had a hard time putting this book down. There was a couple of spots where I did skim over a few paragraphs that got a little long winded but other then that I loved this book. I am all about paranormal reads, and ghosts just happen to be my favorite. I am not a huge romance reader and this book does center a lot of romance, I am impressed it kept my attention so well.


In the book Emily and Brett met 4 years ago and had a whirlwind 2 week affair. Both agreed it would be no strings attached. Brett was headed to the Air Force to be a EOD Tech and Emily was headed back to college to finish her senior year and become a vet. Neither one wanted to admit they had begun to have feelings for each other so at the end of the 2 weeks they parted without looking back. Until a few months later when Emily finds out she is pregnant. She knows that her and Brett's parting was the end, and that his schooling and training in the Air Force was all he could handle at the time so she decides not to tell him about the baby.


Now 4 years later Brett is back in town and Emily has Tyler their son now 3 1/2 years old. She knows she has to tell him now before he finds out on his own. Brett steps right into his role as a father, and Emily and him do their best to keep their feelings to themselves for each other which are still in place even after the 4 year separation. Both also have their own demons to battle with. Emily has lost everyone who has ever been close to her and Brett has PTSD from his years of deployment. There's also a new presence in their life in the form of a 12 year old boy ghost who died over 300 years ago that Tyler picks up as a friend from a ghost tour and invites to come home with him. Brett who at first does not believe in ghosts tries to help Emily with the haunting, and in the mean time their feelings grow stronger for each other. Can they fight their demons, rid themselves of the haunting, and become a family?


There are a few sex scenes in the book, some violence, but very few and very light cuss words in the book. Katherine Knight has done an amazing job with this story. The book is filled with feelings that grab you by the heartstrings. Like I said I am amazed at how well this romance help my attention.


I received this book from the Author or Publisher via Netgalley.com to read and review.

Our Souls at Night: A novel - Kent Haruf

This book is not for me. I am in my early twenties and have never been married — nor do I plan to take that leap. I have never been in an long-term, committed relationship. I have never felt that sort of romantic love, that connection, nor have I felt the loss that often accompanies it.


Kent Haruf’s final published work, a novella (despite the cover’s insistence that this is a novel) is about two elderly neighbors, Louis and Addie, who develop a friendship after losing both of their spouses. Their tales unfold; they have been neighbors for decades but have never been too close. This is a rumination on ageism, death, love, family . . . all that good stuff. But it’s just not for me. I’m not ‘there’ yet. I can admit that. Speaking objectively, this is probably fine (though the overly simplistic writing style did wear on me after a while), but I couldn’t connect to these characters in any way.


If you are looking for a quick, poetic, and occasionally beautiful read, you could do much worse. I know this received rave reviews from critics and several of my friends loved it, too. But said friends are all older and, for the most part, married. As for me, Our Souls At Night felt rather anemic.

I Won 3 Audiobooks on Audible!!

I won 3 audible audiobook giveaways from J. S. Bailey.


1. Servant (The Chronicles of Servitude, #1)

2. Sacrifice (The Chronicles of Servitude, #2)

3. Ordinary Souls


+ I won 1-3 in the Servitude series previously!

Surrender (The Chronicles of Servitude, #3)




I am very grateful to win this. I haven't been a member on Audible for a while and I've missed being able to get books on there. The reason we stopped is of course because of funds, like usual! It is one of the things we keep saying we're going to do again, but we keep forgetting.


This is the second giveaway for her books that I have won.I entered a giveaway for the same books a while ago and actually won the first 3 books in her Servitude series for my ereader.




Previous to winning these giveaways, I met J.S Bailey at The Half Priced Bookstore and bought a physical copy of Ordinary Souls from her.


I'm excited to get to them in the new year.




I feel bad because I've won two times, plus I've bought 1 book and I've yet to read any. It has just been a really hectic time and I am a mood reader. My husband is also interested in reading them, and now he'll be even more happy, because he mostly uses audiobooks!

'Tis the day for internet browsing ... warn me if you see me shelving something you know is awful or is by one of those authors who interact weirdly/negatively with reviews.


*sigh* the turkey is cooking in the oven and starting to make the house smell so appetizing -- but it takes so long ...

REVIEW BY MERISSA - Council of Souls (Fated Eternals #2) by Jen Printy
Council of Souls - Jen Printy
Council of Souls is the second book in the Fated Eternals series, and we continue our story with Jack and Leah. We start off with Artegan as he finds out just what Death intends for Leah now. He knows that Jack won't like it, and will possibly do something stupid, so he doesn't say anything until the last minute. With her new duties taking up a lot of time, Leah struggles to find her balance, but Jack is on hand to remind her just who she is. A mystery woman on a train gives him food for thought, as the machinations of the council start to take over their lives.
This is a good continuation of their story, even though it's been a while since I read the first book, I was instantly drawn back into their world. There are lots of twists and turns, with intrigue galore, as the story progresses. It is smoothly written, with no editing or grammatical errors that disrupted my reading flow. I have no hesitation in recommending this book, although I would recommend that you read book one first as the story follows on.
* A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read this book, and my comments here are my honest opinion. *

#Urban, #Paranormal, #Romance, 4 out of 5 (very good)
