Book Review – They Called Me Wyatt

They Called Me Wyatt by Natasha Tynes
Genre: Mystery

This book starts off with the murder of Jordanian student, Siwar Salaiha on her 25th birthday. Her consciousness goes into the body of Wyatt who was born on the same day Siwar was murdered.

Wyatt grows up and develops a fascination with Siwar’s death and begins his own investigation to find out who is responsible.

I received an advanced copy of this book from Natasha Tynes and Netgalley in exchange for my honest review and it comes out on June 21. This book was unlike anything I have ever read before. The story kept me guessing up until the very end as to who killed Siwar and I loved Wyatt’s character.

I rated this book a 4/5 stars and would definitely encourage everyone to get it when it comes out in June!

Book Review – When I Was Yours

When I Was Yours by Lizzie Page
Genre: Historical Fiction

This is an ebook which comes out April 16th that I was fortunate enough to preview from NetGalley!

The book follows Vivienne’s life during both WWI and WWII. She helped the troops during WWI where she and her sister, Olive, drive the wounded soldiers to get medical attention. During WWII, Vivienne helps take care of a little girl, Pearl, who is an evacuee from London. Vivienne is also married to Edmund who is less than thrilled about having Pearl in their house. The book does a great job of switching between the two wars and even though it is historical fiction, there are some true elements that did take place during each of the wars.

This story was good, but the book started out a little slow for me and for this reason, I rated it a 3/5 stars.
