The Law of Loving Others

I tried so hard to finish this book. It isn't that long and the plot was very interesting. But this book has a lot of drug use and a lot of screwed up relationships as well as a lot of cheating. I think the writing itself was done very well...

Like No Other

Like No Other is a very bittersweet story. Both Devorah and Jaxson are bright, honest, and hardworking young people whose coming together would have been a welcome happening, had circumstances been different. Though this story is touted to...

Fiendish

I’m not really sure how to review this book. Although I did finish it the story felt very flat and weird. It made me feel like I was dropping into a fully formed world where it is normal to find a girl in the basement after ten years. That...

Storm - The SYLO Chronicles #2

The second book in a trilogy normally suffers and falls short of a great read. But Storm was a cut above the rest. I was just as sucked in as I was with book one. I love what the author did with the issues of loyalty and trust as the story...

Tsarina

This novel dares you to ask what you think about one thing: Is it your fault where and into what situations you are born into? The truth of the fact is that we have no control over that. Yet, aren’t we to blame if we simply accept things th...

Earthbound

This book definitely instilled the motto "Don't judge a book by its cover" in my head. This cover does not properly exemplify the storyline at all. Perhaps the last 50 pages or so, but a conspiracy involving a teenage girl, a plane crash, a...
