  • Review: Vanishing Girls

    I always read what Lauren Oliver puts out. I’ve done this since her first book. The only issue is I never know what I'm going to get. This book was just not for me. The changing POV really killed the story for me personally. It really made me not care...

  • Review: Sugar

    I feel like I'm really in the minority with my rating. I've read glowing, shining, perfect reviews of Sugar and as a fellow plus size gal myself, I'm really disappointed. The first couple pages I think really set the tone for me. It was very stereotypical,...

  • Review: Through Fire & Sea

  • Review: Ice Kissed Kanin Chronicles, #2

    I have to say that I didn't enjoy the org series that this is a spin off of. But book two of the Kanin Chronicles has blown me away again. I loved it. In this second installment we have lies, traitors, deception, and more all tied up with romance, honor,...

    Well covers. I’m not a fan of the new ones. I miss the old covers. :( :) OK. Moving on. The Door in the Moon was beyond the most suspenseful of the three Chronoptika books. I stayed up until like 2am reading this thing, LOL, because who needs sleep. This...

  • Review: A School for Unusual Girls A Stranje House Novel, #1

    A School for Unusual Girls was amazing!!! It gives a “what if” story of the historical events of 1814. And it was so yummy. I really wish that it would have ended on a better note, as book two is going to be in Tess's POV. So I really hope that we get...

  • Review: Miss Mayhem Rebel Belle, #2

    Miss Mayhem had the book-two-syndrome if I ever saw it. It has the same great cast of characters. Same kick butt heroine. But there was just something about it that made it fall flat. This book two in the Rebel Belle series picks up where book one left...

  • Review: The Girl at Midnight

    How can I put this nicely? I started reading this and was so excited at how it started. Then I started getting the vibe that it was like another book I had looked at. This one is very similar to another book called Daughter of Smoke and Bone. And where...

  • Review: The Book of Ivy

    I read book one forever ago and although I didn’t die hard love it, I did like it. When I saw that I could get book two I jumped at the chance to see where the story went. This one fell way short for me. Seraphina book one was so much better compared...
