Biome by Ryan Galloway

  I adore watching sci-fi movies especially anything to do with the colonization of space so when I read the blurb for Biome, it reminded me of my obsession not too long ago with YA dystopian/science fiction and I thought it would be fun to go back and revisit those days and Biome certainly fit the bill. Set in a colony on Mars, Biome follows the exploits of teenage cadets, […]

Review | Like Candy by Debra Doxer

My take: I really loved Debra’s NA novel, Keep You From Harm, so when I saw Like Candy available for download, I immediately requested it. Her writing is so engaging and pulls you in immediately from the first page. Like Candy was no different. I was actually surprised by a lot of Like Candy. It’s blurbed as a revenge story and while Candy has her moments of pranks and plots […]

Blog Tour | Ella The Slayer By A.W. Exley (Review + #Giveaway)

My Take: “We all pulled together to nurse the sick and bury the fallen. Except it wasn’t the flu. And they didn’t stay dead.” Zombies? Sign me up. Ella, The Slayer was such a fun, unique retelling of the Cinderella story many know and love. Set soon after the outbreak of the Spanish Influenza, Ella is caring for her father, taking care of her home, living with a monster of a […]

Review | Just a Few Inches by Tara St. Pierre

My Take: There are many things that I have love about blogging. But one of my favorites, is finding new to me author/s and books that I wouldn’t find by “normal” means. Just a Few Inches is one of those books. It comes with a strong message about the perception of body image; most would find empowering. Just a Few Inches follows the story of a girl, Carrie, who like many teenagers, […]

Review | The Light of Day by Kristen Kehoe

After reading Life, Interrupted, I knew I would pretty much read any book Kristen wrote. That book hit me hard – and only an extremely talented author could purge so much emotion out of me. When I was asked to review The Light of Day, I jumped on it. This book is on the more “mature” side, being a New Adult, and I couldn’t wait to see how she would […]

Blog Tour | Life Interrupted by Kristen Kehoe (Review + Giveaway)

There are a handful of subjects in fiction that I will not read. Normally, had I seen this book floating around I might not have picked it up, because the sole focus on this book is one of those subjects. But I am so glad I did. The book was hard to read, I’ll admit that, but for reasons that are personal and touching. I don’t want to get too […]

Review | Sunshine (Sunshine #1) by Nikki Rae

I’m just going to come right out and say it – I almost DNF this book. Twice. I am glad I stuck it out and finished but my thoughts are a jumbled mess. Sunshine has such an interesting premise. Although we know a little bit more about Myles going in than I felt we should have, I thought the twist on the vampire lore was quite interesting. However, although there […]
