One Paris Summer

One Paris Summer

On 6/30 lekeisha thomas wrote: Another summer. Another teen in Paris. I was really hoping to love this book. After not liking Anna and the French Kiss, I thought I’d give this one a shot. I didn’t have a great experience with Swank’s other genres, so I thought this would be great to see if I could really enjoy her writing. If ... 2.5 Stars!

Remember To Forget, Revised And Expanded Edition

Remember To Forget, Revised And Expanded Edition

On 5/30 lekeisha thomas wrote: The topics of grief and depression are ones that I take seriously, so I was sure that I would fall hard for this book. I didn’t. In fact, it was actually quite boring at times. I tried to really connect with Levi, but his character isn’t well developed. That really sucks because he had a lot to be ...

On 10/14 lekeisha thomas wrote: What if you could go sit down in Starbucks, or your favorite coffee shop, and talk to God on your laptop, cellphone or tablet? What would you ask him? Mind you, you only get one question, so make it good. I needed some inspiration so I decided to go ahead and crack this book open. I loved reading this ...

Summer by Summer

Summer by Summer

On 4/22 lekeisha thomas wrote: So, this book’s synopsis tells all. I was apprehensive about it in the beginning, but then I found that I couldn’t stop reading because there was the mystery going on with Summer. I wanted to know what caused her to be so closed off, and just whose grave her best friend tended to in her absence. ... Review: Summer By Summer by Heather Burch

Both of Me

Both of Me

Rebels

Rebels

On 11/2 lekeisha thomas wrote: I loved the action and the realness of the characters. These 3 brothers are the epitome of heroism. Their struggles to maintain their faith while dealing with evil is all too real. My soft spot was held for Levi, of course. It goes to show that one will stop at nothing to protect the ones they love. ... Review: Rebels by Jill Williamson

Palace of Darkness

Palace of Darkness

On 9/15 lekeisha thomas wrote: I think that it’s safe to say that Tracy Higley is becoming one of my favorite historical fiction authors. I love the way she researches and brings forth a story that captures readers attention from start to finish. The characters are described well and the setting is beyond what I expected. Then again, ... Review: Palace of Darkness: A Novel of Petra

Prelude for a Lord

Prelude for a Lord

On 8/11 lekeisha thomas wrote: A very well written novel that I really enjoyed. What can I say, I’m a sucker for historical fiction. Loved the setting and historical aspects. Alethea is considered an anomaly among society in Regency England. Being unwed is one thing, but playing an instrument that the people deem inappropriate ...

Seagrass Pier

Seagrass Pier

On 7/1 lekeisha thomas wrote: This book is the third in the Hope Beach Series, but I haven’t read the first two, and can be read as a stand-alone. The suspense is heart-stopping. There was really so much going on that I had to pace myself before I got overwhelmed. Is there a limit to how much detail there needs to be in a book ... Review: Seagrass Pier by Colleen Coble

Spirit Bridge

On 5/6 lekeisha thomas wrote: Again, I read another book without reading it’s predecessors. It was well worth it, I must say. The battle between good and evil has never been better. I found it hard to put down at times, it’s just that good. I have to buy the first two books soon, to read and add to my favorites shelf. I’m ... Review: Spirit Bridge by James L. Rubart

The Queen's Handmaid

The Queen's Handmaid

On 4/16 lekeisha thomas wrote: This is Christian/Biblical Fiction, and whilst I liked those aspects of the book, I was much more for the history. You can’t have one without the other when reading Biblical/Historical, simply because they go hand in hand. I’ve never read any of Tracy Higley’s books, so I took a chance on this ...
