The Different Girl

The Different Girl was not what I was expecting. It was strange to say the least and I am not sure I personally understood most of what was going on. In this story there are three girls who are exactly alike except for their hair color. The...

Obscura Burning

This one didnt impress me much. I did love the cover which is why I wanted to give it a chance. However it was a solid three stars for me. I thought parts of it were confusing. So all in all this one will work out for some people but for me...

Wishing You Were Here - Soul Mates, #1

Wishing You Were Here is one wonderful read! I love time travel books and this one was a very fast read! The flow was a little off in places, thought after a while you get used to it and things pan out fine. Wishing You Were Here will leave...

The 39 Deaths of Adam Strand

For a story about a boy who continually attempts suicide and ultimately succeeds although an unknown force brings him back to life, readers sure aren't quite given an answer as the the how and why questions that arouse while reading the sto...

The Human Side - The Demon Side Series #2

The Human Side is actually the second book in the Side series. The first novella was titled The Demon Side. I've read both books. I can honestly say this book truly accomplishes one of the most difficult tasks in writing a series. It manage...

The Exemeus - The Exemeus #1

Well The Exemeus just didn't work out for me! I thought it was confusing and rushed in parts. With being just over 500 pages I think more time should have been spent on Hayalee's full warrior mode since it is her book. All in all it did kee...

The Better to Bite
