Book Reviews // Literary Discussion
Let's go to a place that takes us far far away
When you find that book that distracts you from the boring details of your everyday life, or the pain you have endured. That is what makes the written word so special. Some stories transport us to another time or another place. Our imagination sparks and everything else fades into the background. We spend hours and even days lost in the lives of those who were created. There is nothing quite like it.
Whenever you read a good book, somewhere in the world a door opens to allow in more light.
Heir of Fire
Sarah J Maas
This series truly gets better with each installment. This makes me feel both ecstatic and sad because I cannot wait to start diving into the next book AND I will be incredibly sorrowful once I am done reading the series. Thankfully, books are meant to be read more than once ;)
Feral Sins: The Phoenix Pack
Holy freakin' cannoli. I felt like I needed to go to a confessional (even though I don't practice Catholicism) after finishing this novel with its highly sexualized plot, vulgar language, and lack of character development...
The Outback Governess
I found the overall feel of the novel to be sweet, caring, and sensual. Paige comes across as a lovely young woman who truly has a passion for teaching children...
When Jack first reached out to me for a review I was really excited to dig into Clarissa Awakening because I've never read a novel from the perspective of a female lead that was written by a man...
This Does Not Leave This House
I do not normally review autobiographies, but when Julie reached out to me with a description of her book, I could not resist taking a deeper look into her tumultuous past and how she overcame so much adversity...
Single State of Mind
Before I begin this review, I want to say that I really enjoy the Bachelor/Bachelorette franchise because I genuinely have a fascination and appreciation for watching people fall in love. I read Andi's first novel when it released a few years back and I really enjoyed her candor regarding the nature of her engagement and how she rose from a toxic situation into a new and better version of herself. Unfortunately, I cannot say I had as good of a time with Single State of Mind...
Stillwaters captures your attention with a tragic opening. Readers get a glimpse into the feral childhood of Jem and the neglect she endures from her only family members...
Change is Good
Before I get started with this message, I just want to say a huge thank you to all my readers and all the authors who have sent me their novels and put their incredibly hard work into my hands for an honest review. Without the help and trust of every single one of you, Brianna Remus Books would not thrive...
The Six: Kristy
This novel came to me at just the right time. My reading list was saturated with thrillers and emotionally heavy novels that it was a refreshing break to read something light-hearted (for the most part), fun, and steamy!
Burying Leo is an incredibly relatable story that explores the concepts of first loves, marital discord, infertility, and self-exploration from a woman' perspective...
The Hermit of Blue Ridge
Taking a wide scope lens, this book will provide you with a gripping story of a middle-aged man who has been jaded by various tragedies throughout his life...
From the opening scene to the very last page, I was entranced by this novel. We learn that Flora Dane is no longer the carefree college student who used to play with foxes...
The Black Witch
I cannot even begin to express how much I enjoyed this novel. From the very beginning it was quite evident that Elloren is a very unique and strong-willed young woman...
Review: To start off, I'd like to mention that I am not one who typically enjoys a slow start. I much prefer for books to take off rather quickly because I tend to lose interest if I am not whisked away on the journey from the very beginning...
going home: roger
Review: Going Home: Roger is a deliciously sweet romance novel that follows a blossoming couple with each partner coming together despite their meeting at a vulnerable point in life...
the swing over the ocean
Review: This novel was such a refreshing read. Although the genre listed is literature and fiction, I would also add that this fits into the drama and thriller genres as well...
murder among the tombstones
Review: Murder Among the Tombstones begins similarly to Sweet Dreams, Baby Belle in that the opening scene provides readers with insight into the murder that leaves the remaining characters in search for the perpetrator...
revenants: the odyssey home
Review: This novel starts out as a slow burner that quickly ignites and develops into an enthralling tale full of twists and turns that will keep you turning the pages...
a daffodil for angie
Review: This well-written coming of age novel is sensitive, charismatic, and insightful. Angie is a teenage girl growing up in a time when social issues are prominent and there is movement for change...
gail ward olmsted
Review: At first thought, I found this book to be really fun, humorous, and enjoyable. Both the main characters, Jill and Ben, were charismatic and extremely likable...
Review: From the start of the very first scene, Gun Kiss is an action packed and thrilling novel that will have you turning the pages as quickly as you can read them...
assassination of jfk:
Hello everyone! I am a lover of many things! I have always enjoyed reading books and I have decided to turn my passion into something more. I enjoy a wide range of genres. Please head over to my For Authors page to see which genres I am currently accepting for review. I am currently working on my first novel, which I hope to have finished by the end of this year. I married my best friend in 2016 and I am the mother to three incredible doggies and a feisty kitty.
