The Gold-Son

“The Gold-Son” is noted as a Young Adult novel, but it starts out sounding like a middle-grade read. Don’t read the synopsis if you haven't done so already. It gives way too much away and pretty much sums up the story before you’ve started....

The Breaking Light - Split City Book 1

The Romeo Catchers - The Casquette Girls Series Book 2

“The Romeo Catchers” is a great sequel to the The Casquette Girls series. It’s been a while since I read book one so I had to look up what it was about as I didn't remember. And I just didn't have the time to reread book one. This second bo...

The Odds of Loving Grover Cleveland

“The Odds of Loving Grover Cleveland” for me was a mess. It was manic to the extreme and I just couldn't get into it. I felt very confused and didn't connect with any of the characters. The story felt very bipolar and it just didn't work ou...

Call Forth the Waves - The Celestine Series, #2

Sing Down the Stars - The Celestine Series, #1

Sing Down the Stars starts out pretty well but then the MC skips back to the past. I really wished it would have started in the past telling us what had happened. The current way makes it feel choppy. The story is slower than most and kind...

As Black as Ebony - The Snow White Trilogy, #3

Gilded - The Gilded Series, Book One
