Review: Run Away by Harlan Coben!

Hello, Hi, Welcome to the ongoing saga that is "Christina is totally full of lies"! I know I said I'd have this up 86 million years ago but my life is a giant busy mess! However, my husband and I are moving from Texas to New Mexico on September 1st and we couldn't be more excited! We're incredibly busy [read: stressed] but it's also a really exciting time since we've been dreaming about the mountains for, well, forever. Anyway, I'm back from our weekend trip to Colorado and off again this weekend so I want to fit in a couple of my majorly back logged reviews this week so I thought I'd start with my favorite. Without further ado, here's my review for Run Away by Harlan Coben!

Review: The Power by Naomi Alderman!

Well, first things first y'all: my husband passed his PhD defense yesterday!!! Basically, all that's left is his defense which is mostly a formality. He's working on getting his interview in New Mexico scheduled, then we'll start visiting and house hunting. We are on actual cloud nine right now. This program has been so immensely stressful and it's incredible to be on the other side of the last major hurdle he has to jump before he gets his degree. OK, well enough fan girling over my husband and onto today's read! Our review is for The Power by Naomi Alderman!

Review: The Craftsman by Sharon Bolton!!

From finding something related to the book to putting together the entire post it’s a time consuming… Continue reading ARC Review: #FashionVictim!
