Review | Harmony House  by Nic Sheff

My Thoughts: This book was beyond weird – and nothing at all what I thought it would be. I was excited to read Harmony House; simply because I have been in the mood for a good horror story, which is weird and not like me at all but I digress. This book, while spooky at times, did not make sense and a lot of things HAPPENING were never explained. One […]

Assassin’s Heart by Sarah Ahiers

My thoughts Oh little book, you at me at The Godfather meets Romeo and Juliet There are many, many things I truly enjoyed about Assassin’s Heart. The characters, plot twists, revenge story line. But what I love most about it was the world where families worship a Death Goddess and legal assassinations are a nightly occurrence. Why? It makes you THINK. Not to mention, the strong, powerful message(s) about family. Lea was such […]

Discussion Review | Ten Thousand Skies Above You by Claudia Gray

One doesn’t just read (& review) Ten Thousand Skies Above You. This book, like it’s predecessor, is a journey. An experience. It opens up your mind to the possibility of other worlds and challenges your thoughts on right and wrong and what makes a person whole. What is destiny, even fate? It opens up a lot of different topics for discussion. Some on the lighter side and some with a lot more […]

Review | Dreamland by by Robert L. Anderson

My Take: Well, what an interestingly weird book. I have always been fascinated by the idea that there are other worlds out there. Parallel universes. One I have never thought of was a Dreamland — a land were all the things we dream go. It’s mind-boggling if you sit a REALLY think about it. Dea, is a dream walker. Using objects of other people, she slips into their dreams. What […]

ARC Review | The Leveller by Julia Durango

I love a good science fiction novel – especially one based on virtual reality and gaming. Bonus – Nixy is a gamer bounty hunter. Um, yes. How awesome does that sound? Sadly though, The Leveller didn’t wow me as I hoped – but it was quite enjoyable. The concept behind a virtual reality game like the MEEP, is one that is so fascinating to me I get giddy thinking about […]

ARC Review | Deadfall by Anna Carey

Blackbird – was one of the most unusual novels I read in 2014. It had a very interesting story line and the writing, done in second person narration, added that flare that made it worth reading. Not only that, it ended on quite the cliff hanger so I was eager to dive into Deadfall. Deadfall, was even BETTER than it’s predecessor. The race is on to take down those hunting the teens – […]

Three Reasons You Should Read Emmy & Oliver by Robin Benway

1. Strong Friendships & Family This group of friends is the real, honest and loving friendships that I LOVE seeing in Young Adult. We see the “fenemies” thing done often, and that is NOT the case there. The four were close before Oliver disappeared – and the three left behind stayed that way. Once Oliver returns, the dynamic is still there it just takes time to get reacquainted and for […]

ARC Review | The Night We Said Yes by Lauren Gibaldi

Can we take a moment and just appreciate this cover? I LOVE it! The Night We Said Yes was nothing at all what I was expecting. I was expecting a quick – light and fluffy read that would leave me with a smile. Which is was. But it was also so much more. What I loved the most about The Night We Said Yes was the writing. Lauren is a rock […]

ARC Review | Get Dirty by Gretchen McNeil

It took everything in me not to jump into this book after finishing Get Even – especially after that ending! But I am glad that I was able to have some restraint and let the events of Get Even sink in. There was SO much going on in Get Dirty. The overall plot ARC of who the killer is, the other secrets revealed and the addition of POVs. But the best […]
