Seven Days of You

I went into “Seven Days of You” a little skeptical. The reason being, I thought it was going to be very insta-lovey and melodramatic book. But Vinesse did a great job of writing a very grounded and realistic story that could absolutely happ...

The Mage Sister

When I first began the book, Jahx wasn't a character I cared for. Once we got to 352 years after the prologue and we see a different Jahx I couldn't help but love him. He was no longer insufferable but kind, gentle, patient and sexy. To his...

Imperfect

Let me just say that I am sure this is a good story. I liked what of this book I read and the only major flaw I had with it is NOT something that is “wrong” with the book. I am not saying that at all. I mean, I was annoyed by the gigantic i...

Initially I thought The War Inside was going to be a remake of The Hunger Games. The poverty and lawlessness of a dystopian future seemed to be a huge similarity between the two. However, the stories are actually quite different. I found Th...
