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 Fic...

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...

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 b...

Crewel - Crewel World, #1

Crewel by Gennifer Albin is the first of three books published in this series. There are a lot of paranormal YA stories out there and to find a unique world is rare so I consider this book a real gem. The story is set in a place called Arra...

Dumah's Demons - AngelFire Chronicles, #1.5

Clariel - The Lost Abhorsen, #1

Watch Out, Hollywood! - More Confessions of a So-called Middle Child
