Review: Betrayed

Betrayed by Joseph Lewis My rating: 4 of 5 stars Another great entry into Joseph Lewis's universe. This one delves deeper into the Navajo culture, as George and his adopted brothers attempt to locate one of George's missing childhood friends. Along the way, they stumble into a larger mystery that quickly turns violent - even deadly. This book is a slower burn than the other 6 books he has written, but definitely amps up around the 40% mark. It also does a great job of handling some sensitive matters, such as how one of the adopted brothers questions just how he fits into the family unit and where his sexuality and love really lies. I'd recommend reading the preceding books in the series to fully understand it, as there are a lot of allusions to the events of the past novels which may leave you a bit confusing.

Captured by Grace: No One Is Beyond the Reach of a Loving God by David Jeremiah My rating: 4 of 5 stars If you are looking to understand God's grace, this is a great book to start your journey.

Review: The Midnight Line

The Midnight Line by Lee Child My rating: 3 of 5 stars It's a Reacher book and that's basically the whole review. You know what you're getting into with each book in this series and this was another good popcorn thrill ride. View all my reviews

Review: What Hurts the Most

What Hurts the Most by Willow Rose My rating: 4 of 5 stars Big fan of Willow Rose's books and this was a solid start to a new (to me) series. It has all the hallmarks of a Rose thriller: fast-paced, dual plots and timelines, and plenty of twists. I enjoyed the main mystery and the characters and can't wait to see where it goes next.

Review: Light

Light by Michael Grant My rating: 5 of 5 stars Apparently I never finished this series when I read it in high school, since this book was new to me. To continue my analogy of Harry Potter, this is the Deathly Hallows of the series. All plot points come to a head here and there are no loose ends. Honestly, this is the rare YA series where the final book is just as good as the first and knows when to give up. I've said it in the other five reviews, but this series is well worth the read for teens through adults. As soon as I get caught up on this backlog of reviews, I will begin the spinoff trilogy.

Review: Fear

Fear by Michael Grant My rating: 5 of 5 stars Great book, great series. If I described Lies a Prisoner of Azkaban, this one would have to be The Half Blood Prince. As Dr. Strange said, we're in the endgame now. View all my reviews

Review: The Dark Bones

The Dark Bones by Loreth Anne White My rating: 3 of 5 stars I've enjoyed White's two most recent books and gave this one a go. However, it just didn't do it for me like the other ones did. Overall, it was a good mystery but nothing as amazing as her other two books. She set the bar supremely high for herself! View all my reviews
