Timeless

a review by Coranne I keep going back and forth about this book. I love the premise. It reminds me of a reverse "Time Traveler's Wife" or "Kate and Leopold" (the movie not the book). I was hooked by the exhausting pace of the book...

Not what I thought

a review by Nikki (sng2098) Okay, so I read this in two days; but I did it for a read-a-thon I was part of. If it hadn't been for that then I probably wouldn't have even finished this book. I'm not gonna say it was boring, because it...

Fern Valley - of Animal Imagination

a review by L. Robinson Since I'm an animal lover, I was intrigued by Aileen Stewart's short stories using different animals as her characters in Fern Valley. I thought she cleverly named the characters so that a child could easily identify the animal. I particularly liked...

Slower & Quieter

Reader reviewed by EGZ I, being a fan of the Fallen series found the beginning of this book to be a little slower and less gripping than I would have hoped. New characters are introduced, which added to the feel of the book. I liked the character...

Reader reviewed by The Fable Fairy Witches? Check. School for paranormal beings? Check. Mean clique? Check. Hot boy? Check. Must I go on? Obviously deciding to read Hex Hall was a no brainer. Especially since any book that has the slight resemblance to Harry Potter will have me frothing...
