FANTASTIC!!!

I had only heard good things about this book, so of course I was skeptical. Reading nothing but good reviews, sometimes leaves me disappointed, but that was not the case with Daughter of Smoke and Bones. I loved everything from the cover, the writing style, the characters, the...

Loved the Setting!!

This was a really great historical romance with some paranormal thrown in. I am fascinated by anything to do with the Titanic, so I knew I would enjoy this book. I only wish Jack and Rose would have made a cameo! While the historical fiction elements were great, I kind...

Unique Refreshing Dystopian!

This book was a little slow for me in the beginning, but it soon picked up and I found myself making up places to go so I could listen to it in my car. The audio experience was one of the best I have listened to! Something unique about this...

A MUST MUST Read!!!

I have yet to read a dystopian I don’t like, and this was no exception. However, this stood above all other dystopians I have read (even Divergent)! I was quickly sucked into this devastating world where things went from worse to wicked in a heartbeat! Blood Red Road is one...

A Real Heart-breaker!

This was a sweet, fun, heartbreaking story all wrapped into one. I felt a plethora of emotions along with Brie while reading this book: sadness, happiness, anger, frustration, sympathy, hope, and love. While the topics at hand were fairly serious, and at times sad, the author integrated just enough sarcasm...

Angels? Yes Please!!

Embrace was such a fantastic read! It had the same vibe as The Mortal Instruments, only involving angels. There was a lot of great world building in this book that the author integrated so well into the action, which there was a lot of! I was so intrigued and consumed...

After the Snow

The premise of this book sounds superb! A second ice age, a young boy trying to find his family while being distracted by a damsel in distress, a corrupt government… All the elements were there, but it just didn’t do it for me. Throughout the entire book I...
