Book Reviews & Author Interviews, 2015 -17

Here I’m continuing the list of book reviews and author interviews I have conducted and posted to my blog. They’re listed according to date posted. To read a REVIEW click on the book’s title; to read an INTERVIEW click on the author’s name. (Note: ARC is short for Advanced Reading Copy.)

As a member of Library Thing, BookLook Bloggers, and Net Galley, I have the privilege of receiving books from them in trade for honest reviews. I post my reviews on their websites, and on Chapters.Indigo if available there, and on,, Goodreads, and many of them here for you to read as well. I hope they are of help to you.

Also, you can find the books I reviewed listed on my BUY THE BOOK! page in an easier format – alphabetically.
