Kelly Michele

As an avid reader and writer, Kelly has been addicted to books since before she could talk. At any given moment you will find a book (or three) tucked safely into her purse – just in case – and she is guilty of bringing Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows to finish at the performance of a local band.

One of her favorite feelings is getting lost in the pages of a book, and she will pretty much read anything that you put in front of her. A few of her favorites are: Atlas Shrugged, The Harry Potter series (Prisoner of Azkaban is the best), The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy series, anything written my Laurie Notaro, and much, MUCH more!

READY PLAYER ONE By Ernest Cline [REVIEW]

ready-player-one-cover1 (1)

It’s taken me a while (a lot longer than I would have liked, actually) to write this review of READY PLAYER ONE by Ernest Cline. It wasn’t because I didn’t want to, quite the opposite actually. It’s because I don’t know how to put into words how absolutely freaking AWESOME Ready Player One really is. Let me start of with this little tidbit: I am […]

Blog Tour: THE HUM AND THE SHIVER By Alex Bledsoe [Review]

the hum and the shiver

Where to start with THE HUM AND THE SHIVER? Before I get into the story I want to say that Alex Bledsoe’s writing style is second to none. Not only did the plot of The Hum and the Shiver have me hooked from the start (actually if I’m being completely honest from the moment I read the synopsis), but the way that Bledsoe describes the […]

SHELTER: A MICKEY BOLITAR NOVEL By Harlan Coben [Review]

Shelter

I figured I was in for a treat when I read the synopsis of SHELTER by Harlan Coben. The story seemed right up my alley – a mysterious disappearance, a struggling hero, and what seemed like twist and turns galore. I’m happy to say that I wasn’t disappointed. While Shelter wasn’t the most exciting thing that I’ve read all year, it certainly wasn’t bad by […]

Blog Tour: THE CREED LEGACY By Linda Lauel Miller [Review]

creed legacy

I’ll be the first to admit it. I’m not normally one to sit down with a romance novel, especially one where the main characters are cowboys and live on a ranch. However, I had previously reviewed one of Linda Lael Miller’s Creed books, and decided to give THE CREED LEGACY a try. Here’s where my relationship with romance novels rears its ugly head. The Creed […]

THERE IS NO YEAR By Blake Butler [Review]

There is No Year

THERE IS NO YEAR was a novel that still makes me tilt my head and wonder what I just read. There really isn’t a plot to speak of, that is, there isn’t an underlined story. We’re presented with a family that moves into a new home, but slowly descend into a madness like state, which could have in part to do with the “copy” family […]

DON’T BREATHE A WORD By Jennifer McMahon [Review]

dont-breathe-a-word

I don’t like to give rave reviews. In my opinion, there is always something in a novel that could have been done differently, or even a little better. That being said, to put it in simple terms, DON’T BREATHE A WORD By Jennifer McMahon ROCKED. When I say it rocked (great phrase for a reviewer to use, right?), I mean it BLEW ME AWAY. The […]

BETTER BY MISTAKE: THE UNEXPECTED BENEFITS OF BEING WRONG by Alina Tugend [Review]

betterbymistake

While I was a little skeptical to start reading a quasi self help book, before I was even a quarter of the way through with BETTER BY MISTAKE, I realized that I could really, REALLY benefit from what Alina Tugend had to tell me. That being said, the title is a little misleading. While Tugend does go into how being wrong is a way to […]

THE ONE PERCENTERS By John Podgursky [Review]

one-percenters

THE ONE PERCENTERS was a book that reached out and grabbed me from the first page. John Podgursky writes his story from a first person point of view, which isn’t something that you read every day. I generally dislike stories written this way, I find it difficult to get into the plot when I’m not told what every character is feeling, but Podgursky does a […]

THE PRIEST By Gerard O’Donovan [Review]

The Priest

I’m all about crime novels, especially those that incorporate a crazy religious person into the plot (no offense intended, I just find characters that use religion as a motive for wrong doing incredibly fascinating). The title of Gerard O’Donovan’s debut novel, THE PRIEST, is what drew me to review the book initially. Then I started reading and was beyond grateful that I judged the book […]

HEADS YOU LOSE By Lisa Lutz and David Hayward [Review]

Heads You Lose

I was really looking forward to reading HEADS YOU LOSE. Based on what I had heard of the book, it seemed like I was in for a ride that I wouldn’t forget. Everything that I had read about Heads You Lose prior to opening it for myself was absolutely correct. Heads You Lose was probably one of, if not THE, funniest book I’ve read in […]
