  • Review: A Song for Ella Grey

  • Review: Reawakened The Reawakened Series, #1

    This book is a piece of work. And not in a good way! Not because the main character is rich, gets A's, has all the freedom she wants, etc. She still seemed like a pretty good leading lady. The issues I had with this was the story itself. The author has...

  • Review: Stone Rider

    Okay, so this was a great read. If you are a guy or a girl who loves bikes, or I mean Bykes, then this book is for you! It lays heavy on motor bike details so if bikes aren’t your thing I would probably pass this one by. That being said, I am not so into...
