Stick Cat: Cats in the City

"Stick Cat" is at it again and this adventure is like no other. It's full of cats and we're in the city! We love how the author draws and tells these stories. Little kids and older kids and well I have to say even adults will have fun with...

5 Stars

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 Summer of Bad Ideas

Review by Endy (12 years old) “The Summer of Bad Ideas” is pretty cute and I really thought it was interesting that they were going to Florida. I live there. I think that kids my age should know that some of the ideas in this book can get y...

Shadowcaster - Shattered Realms, #2

The Reluctant Highlander - The Highland Series Book 1

“The Reluctant Highlander” is one of my first Amanda Scott titles, but I can tell you it won't be the last. I really loved the romance and relationship between Ormiston and MacFinlagh. It was a fabulous time getting to know them both and ea...

The Chalk Artist

I really didn’t connect with any of the characters in “The Chalk Artist”, but I liked the plot about things being temporary. Things change all the time in our lives and nothing stays the same. Things are washed away to make room for the new...

The Breaking Light - Split City Book 1

I just wasn't able to finish "The Breaking Light". I got to around 20%. It just didn't work out for me at all. The book started out with the MC being held at knife point by her future love. And that was wonderful..............until.......sh...

Forbidden Promises - The O'Malleys, #4

This has got to be my favorite book so far in this series! I really loved Jude and his bad boy ways. Sloan was pretty much the same as well. I really loved the characters “Forbidden Promises”. Each one has been developed fully and I just co...

Refuge for Masterminds - A Stranje House Novel, #3

Can I scream? YES, YES AND YES this is the story I have been waiting for. Man I really don’t want the Stranje House series to end! I really love how these books have different points of view. You don’t miss anything as the series goes along...

Brimstone

“Brimstone” overall was a pretty good book, but it did lack the action and fast paced flow that I've come to love. I felt like for most of the book I just wanted to skip to the end and find out what happened. It was compelled to know how th...

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 Queen's Dance - The Aurelian Guard - Book Two

The Witch of Torinia - A Tale of Valdur Book 2

“The Witch of Torinia” is the second book in a series. Book one is “The Guns of Ivrea”. Well if you liked the first one you may or may not like this one. For me, this one was a solid three stars. Although it was pretty good the writing is h...

Grunt Hero - Task Force Ombra

“Grunt Hero” was so good! It has action and exciting moments. I just couldn't put it down. I was really getting scared as the end approached. So many things were happening I thought it was going to end on one massive cliffhanger. But the au...

Never Too Late

“Never Too Late” is funny, sad, and just an over-all great read. I couldn't put it down and I will be picking it back up after I read book one. The characters make the story in this book. They are full of development and depth and I really...

Feels Like the First Time - Destiny Bay, #2

To start off I want to say that you can read this book without reading book one. You may not know who Kennedy and her man are. But you won't really lose any content in this book. But it will make you want to go back and read the first book....

You're Welcome, Universe

“You're Welcome, Universe” started out really well. I really loved how the main character stood up for her friend when it came to a slur. The school was in no hurry to stand up and do anything. I think we all strive to have a friend like th...

Just Fly Away

“Just Fly Away” is a book I thought I was going to end up not finishing. As the ending came near I ended up liking it more than I thought I was going to. Lucy's relationship with her gramps really came through during the story. I really enj...

Like a Love Song

After reading “Like a Love Song” I checked out the author's other titles and you can really see how much she has grown as a writer. This book is so better done than her previous ones. This is a wonderfully light read that you can finish in...

Beneath the Shine

I haven't had the best luck with Fine's young adult books, but I am determined to try them all since I’m die hard in love with her new adult series Reliquary. “Beneath the Shine” made me feel a little lost and a little well stupid if you re...

Apartment 1986

Letters to the Lost

This book, OMG!! I didn't know if this was going to be a win for me. The contemporary YA genre is so hit and miss for me that I usually go into them with the thought that I won't be finishing the book. So when I find something like this tha...

Definitions of Indefinable Things

“Definitions of Indefinable Things” is about a girl who suffers from depression and the boy she falls for who has a pregnant ex-girlfriend. I really didn't think I was going to mesh well with the MC Reggie, but wow how wrong I was. I loved...

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...

Royally Roma - The Royals Book 1

I'm sad to say that this one was pretty cheese and had insta-love. But the story redeems these things in spades. This was a great retelling of Roman Holiday, and I just couldn't put it down. Parts of the story were fairly filled with the ch...

Life is Beautiful - Photo-Finish Coloring Books

“Life is Beautiful” is a very inventive adult coloring book. The blending of real photos with being able to color around them makes for a fun time coloring. With the thick weight of the paper you can even try paint and markers. The pages ar...

Hello, Universe

“Hello, Universe” is a great book. It’s sweet and about friendship. I really liked this one and I don't like many middle grade stories anymore. “Hello, Universe” is a great book and should be added to the school library shelves. It’s about...

Black City Demon

I love the roaring 20's so when “Black City Demon” popped up for review I just had to grab it. This is a fast-paced world with shapeshifters, dragons, paranormal detectives, and more all tied together with the realm of the Feirie. I have to...

For me the cover to this one says it all. I was so excited to read this story about a girl who knew how long everyone had to live. It sounded exciting and wondrous but what I found was a slow story with almost no real direction. I ended up...

Allegedly

“Allegedly” covers the court system and how African Americans are treated within it. It does a great job with this. However, it does also have a lot of issues, in my opinion. Within the first few pages we have the three quotes. "You'd think...

Sea of Flowers - Mini Pads of Color

A Perilous Undertaking - A Veronica Speedwell Mystery, #2

How Not to Let Go - The Belhaven Series, #2

Highland Spy - The Mercenary Maidens Series, #1
