Haiku Reviews...

 

Hunt the Stars by Jessie Mihalik


Once enemies, Torran's 
hired Tavi to help him track down
a stolen object.


Science Fiction .... 419 pages .... 4.5/5 stars.
(Space opera at its best: humor, action, suspense, great characters & romance!)





All That Fills Us by Autumn Lytle


Mel's lost herself in
her eating disorder. Can
hiking bring healing?


Fiction .... 346 pages .... 3.5/5 stars.
(There's a lot of hope and heart in Mel's cross-country journey.)





Kiss the Girl by Melanie Jacobson


Grace is leaving town soon--
that's why she's only fake-dating Noah.
But his kisses feel real!


Contemporary romance .... 218 pages .... 4/5 stars.
(A fun take on a favorite trope.)


Happy Reading!

  1. Like that your haiku review sums up the novel for us so we know what they are all about. I'd like to read All That Fills Us.

    1. lol. How many books do you have on that Kindle of yours?

      Delete
    2. Um... between 6 and 700. About 500 unread, 170 or so read. Mind, I've had a Kindle of some sort for about 15 years so some of these have been on there a 'long' time and are free classics, that sort of thing. But, yeah...

    You can always count on Jacobson for a fun, swoony romance, can't you? I haven't read KISS THE GIRL yet, but it's on my TBR list. Glad you enjoyed it.
