Healing Touch – Rags and Riches #4
Bookreview / July 8, 2016

Healing Touch is part 4 in the Rags and Riches series by E.M. Leya. After reading part 1, 2 and 3 I couldn’t wait to read this part and I was not disappointed. The basic story is the same every time, someone rich meets someone poor and they hit it off in a great way. E.M. Leya manages to make the story fresh every single time and I admire her for that. She is one of my top authors by now and I really do hope she is going to write so much more. Dereck is a man on the run, desperate to get as far as possible away from the people that know him best.

Sometimes Love Lasts
Bookreview / July 6, 2016

Sometimes Love Lasts is the new novel by Jake Wells. It deals with matters of homophobia, secret crushes and maybe finding out that love really does last longer than you might think. I found the story to be sweet and very romantic. It kind of plays of on the jock-nerd theme and we all know how much I love that….

The Rite: The Making of a Modern Exorcist
Bookreview / July 5, 2016

The Rite: The Making of a Modern Exorcist was first brought to my attention when I saw the movie of the same name with Anthony Hopkins in one of the lead roles. Now I have always been fascinated with religion and exorcisms so of course I had to read this book. Matt Baglio did a great job in writing this. It describes the life of an American priest who is sent to Rome to take a course in exorcism at the Vatican. During the course he is placed with a veteran priest who has performed many exorcisms and it is here that he learns there is so much more between heaven and earth then we ever thought possible. When he started the course he was a non believer, believing that no person could ever be possessed by the Devil or anyone else. But quickly he has to change his point of view when he sees and hears things he never thought possible. Could it be that the Devil really exists? The first thing he must learn is to see the difference between a real possession and mental illness. All his experiences force him to change the way he sees the…

Bookreview / July 4, 2016

Key To His Heart is the new novel by Trina Solet and is all about the budding love between a manager and his young assistant. Forbidden because of work ethics, but unstoppable in the end.
