Charissa Stastny is an avid reader, happy writer, BYU graduate, and lover of irises, clouds, chocolate, sushi, and the outdoors. Though she was born and raised in Las Vegas, Nevada, she has never pulled a handle of a slot machine and can’t shuffle cards to save her life. She does shuffle kids, laundry, and church responsibilities rather well though. She has lived in Nevada and Idaho, but currently resides in Utah with her husband and four children where shuffling cards isn’t required. She is the author of four books and ‘imagine-eer’ of many more.

2018 - My Book Favs

Another year is in the books...literally! Last year I read a total of 109 books. 91 of these were new books; 2 were books I beta-read for other authors (they'll be out later this year); 16 were rereads (including my own books for editing/formatting purposes). Here is my top 10 list of favorite books I read during 2018.

The Selection by Kiera Cass

Wowzers! This book was phenomenal. I couldn’t stop reading once I started. The dystopian YA romance blew my mind. The characters were so deeply layered; I loved each and every one. This is a love triangle trope, and I absolutely loved it. I don’t kno ...more

Not Another Billionaire by Gigi Marlowe
Rate this book
Clear rating
I got this one for free and thought I’d give it a chance. I’m sick to death of the Billionaire theme, but everyone seems to be writing them. This one was about what I expected. Cute story. Cute characters. Not much depth to either, but entertaining. ...more

Wow! This was a crazy, intense memoir. The author grew up in northern Idaho in a fundamentalist family. She receives little education, as her family doesn’t believe in anything the government does. They don’t do school. They don’t believe in seeing d ...more

I loved this book. Time was scarce, I hadn't received the copy of the book in the mail yet from the publisher and only had a PDF to read (which I hate reading on my computer), yet I sat down to get started, and next thing I knew, I’d finished. The st ...more

Suffering the Scot by Nichole Van

Ah. I always love me a Nichole Van romance. Her words just clutch my heart, say hello, and don’t let go. Her stories stick with me long after I’m done, and I have found myself going back to them like an old friend when I need a pick-me-up or new hope ...more
