Chosen at Nightfall - Shadow Falls, #5

I have read the Shadow Falls books ever since they debuted. While on the surface, they may seem like so many young adult books on the shelves, they aren’t. I have watched Kylie and the people around her mature and grow as people. They don’t...

Panic

Panic wasn't what I was hoping for. I expected a very intense plot with creepy undertones and while the story did have somewhat of a sinister feel to it, it didn't carry quite the punch I was looking for. Diamond, while shopping for tights...

Saint Sloan

Goddess Legacy - Free Read - Goddess Series, #1

Back Before Dark - Code of Silence

I couldn't wait to get my hands on this book. Again I didn't realize that this was a book 2 but I think I did pretty well even though I haven't read Code of Silence. So this one is about the same cast and crew from Code of Silence. They rid...

Fearless - Mirrorworld, #2

Ok so for one thing when I grabbed this from Night Owl Reviews I didn't realize that it was a book 2. Oops. I think I need to pay better attention. The good thing was that I have everything from this author so I already had book 1 laying ar...

Death, Doom, and Detention - Darklight, #2

Death, Doom, and Detention was so much better than the first installment. It was everything I was hoping for and more! I am officially hooked! This sequel starts out with a bang and never stops. Lorelei is still dealing with the fact that s...

Dark Eyes

Dark Eyes is full of never ending plot twists, mob bosses, and hidden identities. While many Young Adult genre authors tend to water down adult themes, Richter doesn't baby his readers and takes risks. He's just about as risky as Wally. Our...

Moonglow - Darkborn Legacy, #1

This is the first book I've ever received for review that I couldn't make it all the way through. I made it to about page 200, and I feel that's a fair enough length to get a handle on the premise. For a beautiful cover, the storyline is me...

Thirteen Reasons Why

For starters, I was glad this book took place AFTER Hannah died, because it would have been so much more depressing had we have gotten to know her before. I felt the writing was okay, but the book was really slow for me. The characters felt...

Butterface

I really liked this novella at first, but it turned a little sour for me. The ending felt rushed and the characters felt like ghosts. I mean, some of the dialogue was reasonable, but the characters? Pathetic, in my opinion. If you like what...

Hey, Nobody's Perfect

Hey, Nobody's Perfect was a good book. I enjoyed how the plot slowly came together and that Sivia and Keeley started as friends first and took a while to get together. Sivia was interesting, caring and nice. Keeley was a sweet and caring ch...

If You Find Me

A disclaimer should be seen by all readers thinking of picking If You Find Me up: mature audiences only. The content is much, much heavier than I ever could have imagined. That being said, I've read a lot of books. A LOT of books, and I've...

Earth Girl - Earth, #1

Earth Girl is an excellent debut novel by Janet Edwards, an author that shows that for some authors, a story idea takes time to ripen into excellence. This is one of those. The main character is a believably written 18 year old girl that is...

Wilde's Fire - Darkness Falls, #1

I was kind of worried about Wilde's Fire because of the length. I haven't had a lot of good experiences when it comes to books that exceed 250 pages. So this one being 324 made me very scared to get started. But after reading this book I wa...
