Haiku Reviews...

 

Nothing Short of Wondrous by Regina Scott


Protecting Yellowstone
is his job, and her passion.
Teamwork leads to love.


Historical fiction .... 309 pages .... 4/5 stars.
(I also really enjoyed Scott's A Distance Too Grand.)





Hyenas by Michael Sellars


World gone mad. Humans
turned savage. Language lost. Can
Jay and friends survive?


Science Fiction/Dystopian .... 272 pages .... 3/5 stars.
(Not quite zombie apocalypse, but close!)





You Are A Badass by Jen Sincero


You can change your life.
Just believe in you. Then act.
Most of all: Love Yourself.


Self-Help/Nonfiction .... 244 pages ....4.5/5 stars.
(Lots of language, but some excellent advice.)




The Flip Side by James Bailey


Go. Stay. Right. Left.
For one year Josh decides it all
with the flip of a coin.


Contemporary romance .... 371 pages .... 4/5 stars.
(Humorous and fun...and set in England!)



Happy Reading!

  2. Flip Side sounds funny! Nothing Short of Wonderous sounds lovely. I love everything about National Parks. It's my goal to someday visit every one of them. Great reviews, Lark! :)

  8. I am always impressed by the range of genres you read! What would you say is your least read genre?

    1. Hmm...that's a bit tricky to say because I read a little bit of everything. But I don't read a lot of horror (though I do read it once in awhile). And I don't read too many memoirs either. So probably those two?

  11. I love your haiku reviews. The Flip Side is high on my list of books to read. I gave my MIL Nothing Short of Wondrous for Christmas and she enjoyed it. I need to read it yet myself!
