Sci-Fi Meets Lord of the Flies

Just when I thought I was over dystopian novels, along comes one that knocks me off my feet. When I read the blurb for GLOW at first I thought it would be too similar to ACROSS THE UNIVERSE. Boy was I wrong! The sequel SPARK is no...

Chilling Alien meets Ender's Game

All I can say is, "OMG." This book had me on the edge of my seat. Think Aliens meets Ender's Game. In this case the kids are the ones being geared to be the killers. There is so much to love about this book. It's...

True Friends

I totally loved this book! As a former first grade teacher, I could very easily see myself sharing this wonderful tale of friendship with my students. Gollie and Bink are like any other younger elementary aged kids with their interests and also differences. Children will totally relate...

User Friendly Solution Guide

This compact 'How-to' Handbook breaks down everyday life problems into six sections, making it easy to navigate and find what kinds of skill you need help in. This is a huge plus! I hate when reference books only make you more frustrated with complicated directions. With...

Awesome sequel

I was lucky enough to read THE IMMORTAL RULES when it was a 2012 Cybil's nominated book. Not another vampire book, I thought. Boy, was I dead wrong! And the second book ETERNITY CURE is even better than the first! I mean, what's not to love?...

New Must Have Resource for Writers

I love resources that help me with my own writing process. I'm a huge fan of stories that are emotionally packed. I feel ripped off if I read a story that deals with heartache and grieve and skips over the emotion the characters must be feeling. Denise...

Great Voice

I'm a huge fan of paranormal romances and PROPHECY GIRL is that and so much more. First off I totally fell in love with the voice. Amelia Bennett is a demon hunter who would eat Buffy the Vampire Slayer for breakfast. Her voice is hilarious with just...

New Anti-hero to Love

Once I read the blurb to this YA paranormal, I knew I HAD to read this book! Entangled is fast becoming one of my favorite publishers. Dante is filled with ‘tude and thinks he’s all that. He just happens to be soul collector for Lucifer....

Teaser to The Selection Series

This is the perfect ebook novella to read while waiting for the second book in THE SELECTION series: THE ELITE. I really loved reading Prince Maxon's POV. This novella shows us the selection through his eyes. I loved seeing how he viewed the girls including America. ...

Fun Twist where Greek Legends meet Urban Fantasy

I love fun twists on any ancient legend. In this case this would be Greek mythology. Perez takes some Greek mythological creatures and places them in modern day Minneapolis. What you get is one fast-paced ride with romance, mystery, and betrayal. Nyx Fortuna is a son of...

Gritty Coming of Age Tale

I admit I'm a huge fan of the 80s. I left home to attend a private university in the later 80s. During this time I discovered the nearby clubs around Salt Lake City. Along with the good times I saw other things like the drugs that could...
