  • Review: The Token A Breed Apart

    Okay this book is rather hard to review for me. I've never had a book do such a thing like this. This book is great in the beginning. The lead character is amazing, and not a 'the back says I'm not perfect and I'm trying so hard to be normal when I'm...

  • Review: Valley of Fires The Conquered Earth, #3

    This is the third book, and possibly the last, in A Conquered Earth series. This series has a very complex world and has multiple story lines going on at the same time so it would be best to start this series at the first book to understand all the issues...

  • Review: Rebel Nation Nation, #2

  • Review: A Time to Dance

  • Review: Sway

    The tagline of this book had me pulled in, "Boy Meets Girl…Boy Charms Girl...For Someone Else". So going into this book I was thinking it was going to be some sappy romance book, but was surprised when it wasn't. Jesse is a fouled mouth jerk. The writer...

  • Review: Stranger

    So after the first two chapters I started to get really scared. I’ve had issues with books that are over like 2 POVs and this has 5! But that was fine. Each character had their own very distinct voice. So it didn't mess the story up and it didn't confuse...

  • Review: The Fire Seekers The Babel Trilogy, #1

    This is one of those books that I really wonder how it got published. The book is very very slow. The characters go from being at deaths door to all of a sudden fighting. Things just didn’t make sense. This book is classified as Science Fiction Young...

  • Review: Anatomy of a Misfit

    OMG I have to say that this book blew me away! I haven't read anything so funny in a while. Although I do think this book should have been updated for this time period instead of using things like The Brady Bunch etc. As I don't think most teens will...

  • Review: Feuds The Feuds Series, #1

    UGH. Yup that one word. The story started out weird. It didn’t keep my attention and well it just didn’t work out well. The characters weren't fully developed and the plot started out in the middle of the story. I think it would have been better if we...

  • Review: The Curse of the Thrax Bloodsword Trilogy, #1

  • Review: Black Ice

  • Review: Clariel The Lost Abhorsen, #1

    Although I had to get the cliff notes version of what the first three books were about. This one was ok at best. I think that there should have been more magic right off the bat. This is the long awaited conclusion to the Abhorsen series and well it felt...
