• Review: The Rains

    “The Rains” is a very fast paced and creepy read! This really reminded me of “Invasion of the body snatchers”. “The Rains” is for the science fiction reader! Told through a journal via Chance Rains you do find out what happened with the invasion which...

  • Article: Natalie D. Richards on The Ideal Way to Spend a Fall Weekend

  • Review: Ghostly Echoes A Jackaby Novel, #3

    I have been a fan of the Jackaby series since it started and I am very sad to see that this third story just didn't work out for me. The wonderful Mr. Jackaby fell so flat for me that he really was only good for seeing the other world in this story. He...

  • Review: The Fall of Butterflies

    OK, so I really don't know where to start on this novel. I don't normally read contemporary, but when I saw this I was instantly intrigued. So I gave it a go. I’m not so sure that was such a good idea…but every reader needs to step out of the box and...

  • Review: A Forest of Wolves The Uprising, #2

  • Review: The Replacement Crush

  • Review: Forever Sixteen The Haney Brother Series Book 1

  • Review: Bloodcraft The Cruentus Curse Series, #2

    “Bloodcraft” took me for a loop. For the most part I DIE HARD LOVE IT!!! Especially in the start when Tori is using magic to kill of all things spiders. I can’t help but think how useful that would be. But then there are parts that just made me want to...

  • Review: Horseplay A Hickville High Companion, #4

  • Review: Defying Gravity

    “Defying Gravity” is a feel good book. It is predictable, it doesn’t tackle any difficult issues and it is bubbly and nice. I was pulled into the story from the very beginning and I enjoyed the ride very much. The heroine Zoey Miller is a secondary character...

  • Review: Bloodspell The Cruentus Curse Series, #1

    This is the debut of Amalie Howard and after reading her other books I can see how far she has grown. All though this story hits it out of the park with as an AMAZING debut you can really see how this is a new author. The story isn't refined in some parts,...

  • Review: Resisting the Rebel

    I am a big fun of Lisa Brown Roberts books, and I can proudly say that I read all of them. Unfortunately, “Resisting the Rebel” is not her best story, but it is very likable. The plot is simple and it has a bit overused topic of fake boyfriend / girlfriend....

  • Review: Losing Gabriel A Love Story
