The Chaos of Stars

Kiersten White creates such fun worlds and characters. The Chaos of Stars first drew me in because it deals with Egyptian mythology. This isn't an area I'm particularly knowledgeable in, but I have not encountered Egyptian mythology in Youn...

Daylighters - The Morganville Vampires, #15

This is the 15th in The Morganville Vampires series and starts where the other left off. This one is jam packed with action twists and turns. No cliff hanging for fans of this series. I do think a lot of it was tied up a little too neatly....

Unbreakable - The Legion, #1

Skin

I've fallen into the two extremes with YA books lately; either I absolutely hate them or I love them irrevocably. With Skin, I felt neither. I was indifferent, bored and confused. I was feeling standoffish to a book, is that possible? I wou...
