The Da Vinci Code - The Young Adult Adaptation

I decided to read part of this book alongside its adult counterpart. And what I found was the adult version reads as a book two to “Angels and Demons”, The YA version reads as a book one. Other differences were we get a letter to the reader...

Losing Gabriel - A Love Story

“Losing Gabriel” is such a great story! It’s been so hit and miss on contemporary, but this was a hit! This book tells the story of three very different characters. Each telling is told alone then they intertwine into one great story! Each...

Beware That Girl

I was so excited to get this book from both BEA and Night Owl Reviews. But what I found was a book that was way different than I thought it was going to be. “Beware That Girl” is full of abuse and it seems that that is the main plot. Almost...

The Darkest Corners

In short this book will blow your mind! This is up there with Killer Instinct by S.E. Green. Just when you think you have everything figured out you WILL BE WRONG! Not many books do this for me. I normally can figure it all out before the e...

Unforgiven - Fallen, #5

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...

No Such Person

This one was so hard to love. I love a good mystery but this one was just so hard! The plot was interesting but the way it was written (writing style) was too different from what I'm used to. It made the book very hard to get into. I did li...

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...

Stone Rider

Okay, so this was a great read. If you are a guy or a girl who loves bikes, or I mean Bykes, then this book is for you! It lays heavy on motor bike details so if bikes aren’t your thing I would probably pass this one by. That being said, I...

The Rules

So, this one just didn't work for me. It's the same old story about someone hunting down and killing teens. This book starts out pretty well, but also falls apart pretty fast, too. The characters were uninteresting and it just kinda got to...

The Girl at Midnight

How can I put this nicely? I started reading this and was so excited at how it started. Then I started getting the vibe that it was like another book I had looked at. This one is very similar to another book called Daughter of Smoke and Bon...

Burned - Dani O'Malley / A Fever Novel

Suspicion

Other than the gorgeous purple maze on the cover, I felt a slight kinship to Suspicion. For whatever reason, I recalled a horror movie from my childhood which featured a sinister maze overlooking a creepy hotel. It scared the pants off me a...
