The August 5

The August 5 had a lot going for it. It has some great topic starters about colonization and conquering. The only issue I had was that the book was fairly slow and that the female characters had more depth vs the male characters. The story...

A Song for Ella Grey

At first I didn't realize this was a re-telling of Orpheus and Eurydice. I ended up having to Google it. I honestly really didn't connect with the characters. Ella was a bit annoying in the beginning. The story felt very poetic and the some...

To Stand Beside Her

I liked the story concept in To Stand Beside Her. I loved Nalik. He is kind, patient and not what you would expect. He has accepted his fate and the way he opened his heart to Anatolio, Phillip, Ruth and Tim was amazing. His love for Leila...

Reawakened - The Reawakened Series, #1

This book is a piece of work. And not in a good way! Not because the main character is rich, gets A's, has all the freedom she wants, etc. She still seemed like a pretty good leading lady. The issues I had with this was the story itself. Th...

Crystal Kingdom - The Kanin Chronicles, #3

Resonance - Dissonance, #3

Why do all the good series have to end? This sequel to the best book ever - Dissonance was epic! This one picks up shortly after book one ends. I think it would have been a little better if it had been like a year or something. Since, of co...

Ice Kissed - Kanin Chronicles, #2

The Door in the Moon - Chronoptika, #3

Hexed - The Sisters of Witchdown, #1

Hexed is pretty cool. It is the first book based on the comic of the same name. I have to say that this Hexed book was much better than the other story with the same name that I read last year. Where that one had a lot of things in the plot...

Shadow Scale - Seraphina, #2

The Haunting of Sunshine Girl - Book One

I really tried to love The Haunting of Sunshine Girl. The plot sounded right up my alley. I’m into ghosts and a good mystery. But shortly into it you realize that this is not written for the teen audience. It reads more like a younger teen...
