Beneath the Lighthouse by Julieanne Lynch #BookReview

Reviewed by me for Reader’s Favorite. Readers’ Favorite Book Award Contest – Enter Today! Although horror is not my genre, the plot of Beneath the Lighthouse by Julieanne Lynch intrigued me enough to read it. I am delighted to report that this is more than a horror story. Beneath the Lighthouse has many ingredients of a fascinating read. I was hooked from the beginning to the end and I couldn’t get enough. The story revolves around Jamie McGuiness, a teenage boy, and his family – his mom (Sonya), his dad (Jack), and his siblings. Jamie is fed up with his … Continue reading Beneath the Lighthouse by Julieanne Lynch #BookReview

Daughter, Undefined by Jackie Ruchti #BookReview

Reviewed by me for Reader’s Favorite. Readers’ Favorite Book Award Contest – Enter Today! Imagine that you were adopted but nobody told you; however, by the behavior of your mom (or the person whom you considered to be your birth mother), you always suspected that you were adopted. Hurtful, right? It’s bad enough to not know for twenty-five long years that you were adopted, but what’s worse is suspecting that you are not living with your biological parents by observing their biased and unkind behavior towards you. Even imagining such a situation gives me goosebumps, but this had been Jackie … Continue reading Daughter, Undefined by Jackie Ruchti #BookReview

First Survivor by Mark Unger #BookReview

Reviewed by me for Reader’s Favorite. We claim to be in charge of our lives until we are forced to go through an alien territory; however, these are the circumstances that push us to explore our strengths and weaknesses. This is what happened when Louis, the three-year-old child of Mark Unger, the author, and his wife, Mary Ellen, was diagnosed with Cancer. If such a small kid is bedridden even for a day, it breaks the hearts of their mom and dad; so nobody can even begin to anticipate the kind of shock and pain that Mary Ellen and Mark … Continue reading First Survivor by Mark Unger #BookReview

Shackled – A Journey From Political Imprisonment To Freedom by Adam Siddiq #BookReview

Reviewed by me for Reader’s Favorite. Shackled – A Journey From Political Imprisonment To Freedom by Adam Siddiq is his grandfather’s real-life narration of a very dark time in Afghanistan. The sufferings that his grandfather, Mr. Khalid Siddiq, endured are beyond my imagination. I was appalled, moved, inspired, and transformed after reading Mr. Khalid Siddiq’s life story. Khalid was born into an influential family. He lived in a huge house with many servants and all the imaginable riches. His uncles and father were in the most sought-after political positions. When they needed to choose sides for the welfare of the … Continue reading Shackled – A Journey From Political Imprisonment To Freedom by Adam Siddiq #BookReview

A Plague on Mr Pepys by Deborah Swift #BookReview

Reviewed by me for Reader’s Favorite. This is the first book of Debora Swift that I have come across and, trust me, it is not going to be the last. A Plague on Mr Pepys is a book that is set in the 17th century London, a time when plague and war were robbing peace and money from people. However, the world of Bess Bagwell is unaffected by these tragedies. The only thing that concerns her is ridding herself of the poverty that she had known way too well in the past. She has high hopes for her husband, Will … Continue reading A Plague on Mr Pepys by Deborah Swift #BookReview

Malice Intent – Is Love Worth Dying For? by Alba Castillo #BookReview

Reviewed by me for Reader’s Favorite. There is nothing worse than being alone. Is there? After reading the memoir of Alba Castillo, I know there is something way worse than being alone; being in a relationship and still feeling lonely, used, disrespected, and rejected wins the oscar of being in the worst situation ever. The author has presented the unfiltered truth of her life in her autobiography Malice Intent – Is Love Worth Dying For? Alba Castillo was born in a place where the future of women was predecided by the society; they were to get married and raise a … Continue reading Malice Intent – Is Love Worth Dying For? by Alba Castillo #BookReview

Magic After Midnight by C. Gockel #BookReview

Reviewed by me for Reader’s Favorite. With every vampire movie and book focusing on a love story between a young girl and centuries-old, yet dashing, vampire, C. Gockel has changed the game in Magic After Midnight by choosing a woman in her fifties in the leading role. Although this is not a vampire based book, the basic ingredients are the same. Count Darerick Razvano, aka Dare, is a night elf who has been sent to earth with a mission and he hates being compared to a vampire. What instigated this comparison in the first place? Well, the night elves, like … Continue reading Magic After Midnight by C. Gockel #BookReview

The Matrimonial Advertisement by Mimi Matthews #BookReview

Reviewed by me for Reader’s Favorite. The first book in Parish Orphans of Devon Series of Mimi Matthews, The Matrimonial Advertisement is a Victorian Romance in all its glory. With the carefully chosen words and formal conversations among the characters, this is a delightful treat for Jane Austen fans. Justin Thornhill has known only the language of vengeance throughout his life. As he served as a captain during the uprise in India, he has been more in touch with violence than romance. He has become a gruff and grim man who has neither time nor interest, mostly interest, to woo a … Continue reading The Matrimonial Advertisement by Mimi Matthews #BookReview
