Like Bookish lists?  Check-out Top 10 Tuesday hosted by The Broke and The Bookish! Here’s a fact: it would be almost impossible for me to read all the books on my TBR in 2018.  412 books on my TBR x 6 hours per book = 2,472 hours to complete. That’s 103 days of reading around the clock.  Or even better, someone could hire me to read eight hours a day (waaay more […]

Review:  The Man in the Black Suit by Sylvain Reynard

I need to drop everything and read all of Sylvain Renard’s books pronto because The Man in the Black Suit was easily one of my favorite books of 2017.  The Man in the Black Suit had a little bit of everything:  an authentic romance mixed with a little danger and suspense.  And dare I mention the breathtaking setting – spanning multiple-continents – conveniently mixed in with a decent dose of […]
