Your Review: 
The first book of the Ascendance Trilogy. In this medieval type series of sword fighting, horse riding, and royalty, you're introduced to the pickpocket Sage, a boy teenager. As quickly as you learn he's an orphan, Sage is bought by a mysterious man by the name of Bevin Conner. Quickly collected with four other orphan boys throughout the made-up country of Carthya, Sage is brought to an estate were he learns more of this mysterious man's plan for the boy who will be finally chosen. With the purposed and sad murder of one of the four, Sage finds out that this is no ordinary game of obedience, but a deathly one concealing a more treasonous route. With brushes of romance and beginnings of friendships, The False Prince pulls you into a story skillfully written and starts you on a twisted journey, making you reach for the second and third books.

Your Review: 
Hello. I really like the book One for the Murphy's. I hope that when someone picks this book up their whole mind changes about judging others without knowing what its like to walk a mile in their shoes. Also, a whole new perspective on foster families and how your treated when placed in one. There's just as much good in the world as there is bad. Its all up to you and what you make of it. I recommend this book to everyone.. young and old.

"Tonight and Always" reviewed by Loretta C. on February 26, 2015

Title: 
Tonight and Always
Author: 
Nora Roberts
This is a: 
book
Your Review: 
The author writes from the point of view of Kasey Wyatt, a beautiful, twenty-five year old, single, savvy and intelligent female anthropologist. Kasey has been employed to help the aristocratic, athletic, single, and complicated Jordan to write his book. Kasey brings joy to the Palm Springs estate, but enrages the homeowner, who is Jordan's mother, that he thought he had under control. The eleven- year-old granddaughter blossoms during this brief visit by Kasey. The author is a wizard at describing her characters. "Pops" is the one to bring the situation under control. The book is a quick, easy read. It is one to take to the beach or keep handy to read while waiting for tardy friends at restaurants.

"The Truth About the Harry Quebert Affair" reviewed by S.M. on February 11, 2015

Title: 
The Truth About the Harry Quebert Affair
Author: 
Joel Dicker
This is a: 
book
Your Review: 
The “Truth About the Harry Quebert Affair” is an intriguing multi-layered story within a story. The author, Joel Dicker, incorporates the themes of forbidden love, friendship, murder, and self-discovery in this suspenseful, insightful novel. He skillfully reveals secret after secret, which leads the reader to believe the 33-year-old cold case has been solved. But then another piece of information surfaces and debunks those previous theories. This is a lengthy book, 897 pages in the large-print edition and 600 pages in regular print. I recommend it as a vacation read, because it is such a page-turner, it’s almost impossible to put it down. This is, by far, the best book I’ve read in the past year. (And I read a LOT of books.)

"One Shot At Forever" reviewed by Jim H on February 3, 2015

Title: 
One Shot At Forever
Author: 
Chris Ballard
This is a: 
book
Your Review: 
One Shot at Forever by Chris Ballard is about a small town high school baseball team that has a dream season. It takes place in Macon, Illinois in the early 1970s and the author adeptly transports the reader back to that time period. But the story isn't just about baseball, it is about a teacher with unorthodox teaching methods and how his students/players come to love him. It is about a time and place that can never be again with our current society and win at all costs attitudes. Please read this book, you will enjoy meeting the coach, the players, and the peripheral folks of Macon, Illinois and how they got their one shot at forever.

"The Bookman's Tale" reviewed by Julia K on January 20, 2015

Charlie Lovett
This is a: 
book
Your Review: 
I checked out this book while waiting for Charlie Lovett's book, First Impressions (which was recommended by a friend). Although the first several pages didn't pull me in, it was interesting enough for me to persevere and the resulting read was certainly worth it. Lovett is an excellent writer, and the switch between time periods was handled very well. It is a romance and a mystery with switches through time periods from Shakespeare to the 1990's. I recommend it.
