Necromancers with a love story

I loved this book so much! I was ten pages in and knew then that I would. Odessa is a necromancer that is in love with her partner, Evander. They both have blue eyes which is a characteristic for necromancers....

Beautiful writing and an odd book!

What really stood out most for me in The Strange Fascinations of Noah Hypnotik was the writing. David Arnold has a unique writing style that just pulled me in. Nothing major needed to be happening, but I wanted to read his words. ...

Abby is the perfect, normal girl.

The Summer of Jordi Perez (and the best burger in Los Angeles) was such a great read. I warn you now, you will probably get hungry while reading. Abby Ives is a 17 year old fashion blogger. She runs a site called +style and just applied for...

Chinese Folklore Invades The Bay Area

It took me awhile to really get into this book. I think a big part of it was that I was in a different country and just couldn't focus. But there was a lot to follow in the beginning. My poor book has tons of flags all...

Strong female characters.

I finally got a chance to sit down and read this one and I was not disappointed. It definitely lived up to the hype for me. What I loved most about this book was that it wasn't just a book about Diana Prince (Wonder...

Another new favorite!

Words cannot express how much I loved this book. I was a bit worried that it wouldn't live up to the hype or be as good as Stalking Jack The Ripper. But it was even better. I have zero complaints about this book. ...

A fun, twisty read.

The Hanging Girl was a quick, suspenseful read. Author Eileen Cook has a great writing style. The story picked up right away and there were plenty of twists throughout the book. Skye is an 18 year old senior with big dreams, but no...

A cute, diverse read.

When Dimple Met Rishi was on my most anticipated list for this year. One of the things I love about YA is the diversity. Whether it's sexual orientation, gender, religion, or ethnicity, I am always looking for different books that have these things. I picked this one based on the...

Even better than the first one!

Holy crap! What can I say about this book? I'm not a huge sci fi reader, but I absolutely loved this book (both of them). First, the packaging. This book is just amazing. The artwork really added a lot. Hanna and Nik were kickass new characters. I loved Ella, too....

Such a unique book!

Wow! I'm not even sure what to say about this book without ruining it for everyone. I'm not normally much of a sci fi reader, but I loved this book. It took me a little while in the beginning to figure things out. The format is so different and there...

Should be required reading.

A new favorite! This book is intense. I think it should be required reading in all high schools. Yes, I know there is a lot of swearing. But let's be honest. Kids hear it in school every single day. They hear worse. So please get past...

Oh my. I don't even know what to say about this book and how much I loved it. I wanted to fly through it because it was so good, but didn't want to finish. The pacing was great and while This Savage Song started a bit slow, Our Dark Duet...

Lots of action and a gender fluid character.

I really enjoyed Mask of Shadows. I'm pretty sure this is the first book I've read with a gender fluid character and I felt that it really added to the story. Sal watched everyone he/she knew die and has wanted revenge ever since. Sal decides to...

Great start to a new trilogy.

I wasn’t sure what to expect going into this book. I had heard it was political and had lots of dragons. That alone made me want to read it. The beginning was a little slow for me to get into. I think a map with all the...
