No Fear! - King of the Bench, #1

At first, this book moved way to slow for my liking. So I put it down and came back to it with my daughter. We decided to read it together and I’m glad we did. This book had us laughing at moments and had us pulled in pretty quickly. I thin...

As Red as Blood

This book intrigued me from reading the synopsis but as soon as I got it in my hands and started reading, I was left confused with no understanding of what was happening and going on. Maybe because this was translated from a Finnish was the...

Foxheart

Personally I had a hard time with this book. I so wanted to love “Foxheart” as I've heard great things about this book and author. However, this wasn't the case for me. While the story and concept were great, I felt a bit confused early on...

Thornghost

“Thornghost” was a fun, imaginative and amazing story. It pulls you in and takes you through a world seen through a young boy's eyes and unfolds a fantasy type world full of trolls, nightmares and talking animals. It reminded me a bit of Th...

The Fall of Butterflies

OK, so I really don't know where to start on this novel. I don't normally read contemporary, but when I saw this I was instantly intrigued. So I gave it a go. I’m not so sure that was such a good idea…but every reader needs to step out of t...

Argos - The Story of Odysseus as Told by His Loyal Dog

I absolutely loved this book. I will admit at first it was strange reading from a dogs POV, but once I started getting further into the book the more and more I enjoyed it. I actually found myself looking up some of the gods online to see w...

The Shrunken Head - Curiosity House, #1

There is a bit of an information drop. It's like, in parts of this book the reader gets way too much information about everything before finally getting back into the story. I think if the author would have just stuck with what the characte...

Royal Wedding - A Princess Diaries Novel

I had a hard time with the latest installment to the 'Princess Diaries' series. Maybe it's because the last time I read the series it was over 6 years ago and Princess Mia was still maybe 16 years old and a bit immature. However, when you c...

The Key - Seven Wonders Journals

This was the first companion novella I have read in any series. I really enjoyed the journal aspect to this one and it had some great background into the Seven Wonders. Will have to pick up the other novellas in this series to add to my col...

The Curse of the King - Seven Wonders, #4

I absolutely loved this book. It didn't leave the reader hanging and wondering where the book would leave off, and the story was absolutely phenomenal! I was especially pleased that this didn't fall flat like so many other books in other se...

The Fire Sermon - The Fire Sermon, #1

I had such high hopes for this book. When reading the synopsis it sounded absolutely amazing. The idea of people being born into pairs and then being split into different societies after birth really had me. But when I started to read this,...

The Eighth Guardian - Annum Guard Book, #1

I had a hard time reading The Eighth Guardian. While the story concept was great the actual story telling was not for me. I want a book that catches my attention within the first 50 to 100 pages and unfortunately with every chapter that I r...

The Conspiracy of Us

I don't know where to start on this one. It was up in the air for me, at points I really loved this one and at points I was left feeling confused and other points I felt like this story shouldn't end to feeling like it couldn't get over qui...

Kinslayer - The Lotus War Trilogy, #2

Kinslayer for the most part was boring. I nearly didn't make it through book one and well this one was no better. I experienced off the wall names and things that I couldn't pronounce let alone understand what it was. I just ended up having...

Sway

The tagline of this book had me pulled in, "Boy Meets Girl…Boy Charms Girl...For Someone Else". So going into this book I was thinking it was going to be some sappy romance book, but was surprised when it wasn't. Jesse is a fouled mouth jer...
