The Wishing Tree in Irish Falls by Jen Gilroy ~ a Review

by Susan Roberts

They're ordinary blueberry muffins.  A lot like her...Once, she'd been a starry-eyed girl with a golden voice who'd imagined she could make it in the music industry.  But nowadays, she was an ordinary person and she'd worked hard to convince herself that all she wanted was to raise Hannah and live her everyday life."  (p 4)

5 Tales of Romantic Fantasy You May Have Missed

by MK French

It's often fun to explore new locations for a vacation. How about entirely new worlds? Some of them are close to our own, others can be completely different from everything we've ever known. People all need and want the same kinds of things, and that includes someone they can love and care for. It often isn't the driving force for the story, but it certainly helps to give our heroes an added push.

The Institute by Stephen King ~ a Review

by Alison DeLuca

Recently I read two books, both of them urban fantasy with a touch of horror.

One was beautifully written, with poetic prose that swirled and made me read slowly to enjoy each word. The other was The Institute by Stephen King.

Fit For Flight by Casey P. Zack and Shelby P. Zack ~ a Review

by MK French

Whether you're a flight attendant or frequent flyer, you are always on the go. Any career that involves constant travel - and thus includes multiple time zone changes, long flights, hotel living, trekking through busy airports and tackling transportation in a new city - makes learning how to manage a daily routine and maintain a healthy, well-balanced lifestyle frustrating if not seemingly impossible. (p. 1)

The Evolution of Charlie Darwin by Beth Duman ~ a Review

by Donna Huber

Since it is Nonfiction November and I only had a few new release ARCs to read, I dove into my backlog of old ARCs to see if there were any nonfiction books there. I found 3 and I decided to read The Evolution of Charlie Darwin: Partner with Your Dog Using Positive Training by Beth Duman.

5 Books for Women

by Susan Roberts

Women's fiction is an umbrella term for books that are marketed to female readers, and includes many mainstream novels, romantic fiction, "chick lit," and other sub-genres. It is distinct from Women's writing, which refers to literature written by (rather than promoted to) women. There exists no comparable label in English for works of fiction that are marketed to males.  (Goodreads)

As you can see from the above description of Women's Fiction, it's an umbrella term for many different genres. In today's post, I have five books that would be considered women's fiction - a suspense novel, a romance novel, two historical fiction novels and a coming of age novel.
