...The One and Only...

My Book Reviews - 2018

Here is a list of books that I have read since January 2018. And No, you are not going crazy. There is no 2017 page of book reviews because I had a baby and honestly didn't have time to read, take care of a newborn and a toddler at the same time. 


They will be listen by their name, amount of stars (out of 5) and a little description of what I thought of them.

If you have any questions, don't be afraid to ask me.


The Secret Keeper

Kate Morton

4 Stars - 13 Days to read

Wow, just wow. Kate Morton has done it again. This book kept me hooked the entire time. She has a way with words that enthralls you and keeps you wanting more and more. 

This book is about a young woman named Laurel and she wants to figure out her mothers past. After seeing a horrific scene when she was younger, and her mother now on her death bed, she finds it more important that she figures out why her mother did what she did to protect her family. 

There were so many twist and turns and even more questions that I needed answered. I love how Kate brings us into the past from her mothers perspective as well, so this book lets you look deep into both characters motives. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a great family history mystery. These books are such an easy read that you will finish before you even realize it! 

King's Cage

Victoria Aveyard


The Only Child

Andrew Pyper

3 Stars - 10 Days to read

This book was actually pretty good. It was a gift from my husband and I didn't really know what to expect of it. I enjoyed it enough to give it a three star only though. 

It begins with a psychiatrist Dr. Lily Dominick who specializes in the dangerous psycho cases. A man comes in claiming to know a lot about her and her life. Even though she knows only whatever memory she has of her deceased mother from childhood. This stranger claims to be her father and sends her on this whole goose chase to make her believe who and what he is. 

I got little bit bored when reading at one point but then a really good part hit and I couldn’t put the book down after that. The one thing that bothers me about male writers – is when they write in the female perspective and just get so many things wrong – Ha! Other than that, I enjoyed the ending. It wasn’t what I thought it would be. I am not too sure if I would recommend this book. There are just so many other great books out there. If you have this free ebook, go ahead and read, but if you have to pay for it - I wouldn’t.
