Recruits - Recruits, #1

I really wanted to like “Recruits”. The premise was very interesting but the writing just didn't work for me. The teens are eighteen years old. So for me, I think this should have been written as a high young adult to even new adult, but th...

Lost in Wonderland - The Twisted and the Brave Book 1

The Amateurs - The Amateurs Book 1

This is my first ever read by Sara Shepard and I am very impressed. The notoriety of her Pretty Little Liars series (which is also a TV show) knows no bounds. I really didn't think I would like this book that much. The description was intri...

Grace and Dignity - The Ark of the Sacred Scrolls, #1

This is a solid story and I enjoyed it. I read the acknowledgments and it says it's based on the idea of a board game. There are plays on words, and the "puzzles" are cute. There is even a section in the back listing the characters and the...


The Delphi Effect - The Delphi Trilogy, #1

This was an X Files government scifi-thriller with spirits! I really loved Anna in this story. Her ability to talk to the dead was really amazing. I love how all the powers flow in this story. It worked out so well. It was never boring or s...

Forever Sixteen - The Haney Brother Series Book 1

Crazy!!!!! I thought “Forever Sixteen” was your typical young adult story where the girl meets the new boy and BAM instant sappy teenage love! I made an assumption about the story based on the title of the story and read it because J.S. Wil...

Supremacy - Supremacy, #1

“Supremacy” started out good with Kate being this semi-naive girl who loved nature and was willing to help a guy out when his bike broke down. Then as it went on I got extremely irritated with Kate and the things she did. She’s supposed to...


Wishing Day - Book 1

I wanted to love this book so much! But the story was just all over the place. Nothing really seemed to have an order and the story was just so confusing because of it. “Wishing Day” started out so charming with a premise that sounded so cu...

Zomburbia - Zombie Apocalypse Series, #1

Perhaps because it's starting to feel like the zombie craze is on its way out...this feels like a last quick grasp onto the fad. Don't get me wrong, spinning the idea that zombies are kind of this background supporting character instead of...

Green Angel - Green Angel, #1

A very odd, very short little story, and aside from the obvious 'time heals most' message, it's kind of sweet.  It is nice metaphor for the message, and the imagery is good, but there's so little of it, I'm not sure what to say about i...

Shattered Dreams - A Midnight Dragonfly Novel, #1

Shattered Dreams, by Ellie James, is a book that took me by surprise. I never thought I would enjoy it, or invest so much of myself in it, as much as I did. After the first chapter, I was hooked and left wanting more, and more, and then som...

If I can predict one book to pop up all over readers' Best of 2012 lists', Incarnate by Jodie Meadows is it. Despite a slower-than-I-wanted start, this book has it all. Romance, mystery, romance. romance and some more of that. Okay, maybe I...
