Book Description:

At twenty-two, Cheryl Strayed thought she had lost everything. In the wake of her mother’s death, her family scattered and her own marriage was soon destroyed. Four years later, with nothing more to lose, she made the most impulsive decision of her life. With no experience or training, driven only by blind will, she would hike more than a thousand miles of the Pacific Crest Trail from the Mojave Desert through California and Oregon to Washington State — and she would do it alone.

Told with suspense and style, sparkling with warmth and humor, Wild powerfully captures the terrors and pleasures of one young woman forging ahead against all odds on a journey that maddened, strengthened, and ultimately healed her.

Guest Review: Hounded by Kevin Hearne (Iron Druid Chronicles #1)

Tony CroppedToday I am so happy to present to you a review written by my handsome, sexy, sweet and wonderful Fiance! (I know, I know…you can all roll your eyes and gag! :-P)  He loves reading as much as I do and he was extremely excited that I asked him to write a review for this book that I would post to all of my wonderful readers!  I’ve been meaning to read this book since it first came out, but haven’t had the time.  When he started reading it, and was enjoying it so much, I thought I’d take the opportunity to start getting him into the swing of writing reviews so that he can become apart of something that is near and dear to my heart…my blog and book blogging! 😀  Without further adieu, here is Tony’s review!
