A Really Late February Wrap Up

First I'd like to say sorry that this is so late and that I did not put up a TBR for this month. I am also currently in a reading slump, which is really sad because I had a bunch of review books I was going to read this month. Although I am going to try to get out of it by watching way to much Netflix. :D Also I am just getting over being sick. So anyway on to the really late wrap up...
Last month I read a lot of books and I am extremely happy. :D In total, I read nine books and I enjoyed most of them. Some were not so good.
The first book I read was Chestnuts: A True Story About Being Bullied by Gilbert Ohanian. I gave this a 2.5 stars out of 5 stars. I have a more in depth review and I will leave the link below. I picked up Einstein's Beach House by Jacob M Appel next. I really liked this book. It was quirky, entertaining, and heartbreaking all at the same time! Also I wrote a review for this and I will leave the link below as well.
Then I read The Shinning by Stephen Ki…

Rising Tide: Dark Innocence by Claudette Melanson

"Isolated and sheltered by her lonely mother, Maura's never been able to make friends. She seems to drive her classmates away—except for the odd times they pay enough attention to torture her—but she doesn't understand why. Maura considers herself to be a freak of nature, with her unusually pale skin and an aversion to the sun that renders her violently nauseous. Her belief is only worsened by the fact that almost everyone around her keeps their distance.

Even though Maura is desperate for answers about her unknown parent, Caelyn remains heartbroken and her daughter can’t bring herself to reopen her mother’s wounds. Or is there a more sinister reason Caelyn refuses to utter a word about her long-lost love?
When a cruel prank nearly claims Maura’s life, one of her classmates, Ron, rushes to her rescue. Darkly handsome & mysteriously accepting, Ron doesn&…

Press Release: The HomePort Journals by A.C. Burch

The HomePort Journals

The HomePort Journalsis a love story on many different levels: love between men, love across the divides of age and social status, love of the family we create for ourselves, and the sometimes arduous struggle to love one’s self.

Aided by an attractive-but-unattainable artist and an all-to-available cross-dresser, Marc investigates accusations of rape and murder that have estranged Lola from a childhood friend for more than sixty years. Past and present converge when a long-lost journal reveals tales of infidelity, adultery, and passion that mirror the life Marc has recently abandoned.
