Zone 23 by CJ Hopkins ~ a Review

by MK French

In a post-apocalyptic world, all dissent and nonconformity have been declared anomalies that need to be genetically modified. This is to maintain peace in the corporate controlled world of 2610. Any variation from a peaceful and average existence is further medicated, and the surveillance and reporting sent those unresponsive to "pharmatherapy" to different zones, quarantining them far from those that were variant-positive.

Sister of Mine by Laurie Petrou ~ a Review

by Susan Roberts

This was an interesting look at how you can love and hate a sibling at the same time and about the bond between sisters. I had a bit of trouble with this book as I have a fantastic relationship with my sisters and had trouble imagining the love/hate relationship that the two sisters in this novel had. Plus I really didn't like either sister and found both of them to be very difficult to feel any sympathy for. That said, I found this an interesting look at how secrets can ruin a relationship even among sisters.

Infidelity by @AnnPearlman ~ a Review

by Donna Huber

Infidelity is a well-written, emotional memoir, but to be honest it probably wouldn't have been a book I picked up for myself because of the subject matter. As a person with trust issues, it confirmed that I couldn't marry.

Jane Doe by Victoria Helen Stone (@VictoriaDahl) ~ a Review

by Susan Roberts

A double life with a single purpose: revenge.

I was up until 2 am finishing this novel because I had to see how it ended. I am tired today but it was well worth the lack of sleep to read the amazing conclusion to this novel.

The White Thread by @KBHoyle_author ~ a Review #TheGatewayChronicles

by Donna Huber

The opening paragraph of the third book in The Gateway Chronicles may seem a bit mundane, but this story is anything but mundane. In The White Thread, we delve more into the prophecy of the six who are to rid the evil from Alitheia.

Harlow by Karyn Rae ~ a Review

by Susan Roberts

"When coming of age arrives late."

This was my first book by Karyn Rae but it certainly won't be my last. This book had me interested from the first page and I had trouble putting it down until the end. I am thrilled to know that this is part of a series and can't wait to read the next book.
