A great debut novel!

Ana is a Newsoul. Unlike other people living in Range, she is completely new instead of having been reincarnated many times over the last 3500 years of so. Unsurprisingly, Ana is considered different, even a bad omen. Her mother hates her. Her father abandoned her as an infant. And everyone...

Great storyline but lacked character and world development...

Don’t. Ever. Peak. That’s what caught my attention when I first heard of this book a while back. For some reason, that and the synopsis made me anticipate the release for months ahead of time. Now, after having read an ARC of the book, I’m still waiting for the release...

A different kind of Waterworld

To tell you the truth, when I first heard of this book, I wasn’t sure if I was going to like it because science-fiction novels tend to be a hit or miss with me. I found the premise intriguing enough to pick it up since it’s a novel set on...

A little disappointing...

I really liked the premise of this book. It started off great and then things just got too confusing and messy for me because of the main character's amnesia. Mistwood tells the story of the Shifter, a magical creature that was created (probably?) to protect and...

A Shinning Debut

Love that's destined to cause feuds and wars. There's something about that type of love that has readers coming back for more. Personally, I think Talia Vance created a wonderful romance between her two main characters, Brianna and Blake. However, SILVER isn't just a simple love story. Brianna is a...

A great fantasy world but where is the rest of the story?

SHADOWFELL starts off with a bang as Neryn’s whole world comes crumbling down in a matter of moments. She loses her father, the only person she had left in her life. Despite him being game-loving drunk, she still felt respect for him because of the hard life he had endure....

Ignore The Controversy

A good start to a series. I admit I'm one of those people that hate reality TV shows, especially "The Bachelor" and "The Bachelorette". I abhor those shows and I go out of my way to avoid them. So, when I was attracted to this cover (look how pretty it...

A Great New Take On Werewolves!

I loved, loved this cover when I first saw it. The colours are amazing and the title design is so captivating. And when I realized it was a book about werewolves, I knew I had to read it. I’ve been anticipating this book for a while now and as soon...

Bloody Awesome!

Ghost stories aren’t usually my thing but I heard so many good things about ANNA DRESSED IN BLOOD, I had to decide for myself. Now, after reading it, I know why Kendare Blake has so many people talking about her book. She knows how to write a good story and...

A perfect and original Fairy Tale retelling!

This is a wonderful debut YA novel by Marissa Meyer that captured me right from the start. She was able to add science fiction and magical elements to a classical fairy tale that many of us grew up with. Loosely based on the Cinderella fairy tale, the...

Good Introduction to a Wonderful New Dystopian World

DEFIANCE is so much more than a story about defying the rules and regulations. It's about fighting for what you think is right and sticking by the ones you care about. It's also a tale of love and fighting through hardships, no matter what life throws at you. I think...

Better than the first but still not great

In The Goddess Test, I really enjoyed the way Aimée Carter created her own version of the Greek Mythology world and made the Olympian characters her own. In GODDESS INTERRUPTED, she took it to the next level (literally) by bringing the story to the underworld. Greek Mythology is all about...

Good sequel - Great Narrator

I was very eager to read this book since the previous book ended with too much unfinished business for my liking. TIMEPIECE has been on my watch list, ever since I finished Hourglass (Hourglass #1), and although this newest installment answered a lot of my questions, new ones have been...

Gossip Girl Minus Manhattan and Spoiled Rich Kids

I never read contemporary YA. Not because it's beneath me but because I always thought it wasn't for me. But when I read the synopsis of this book, I new it was special and that I had to read it. To be honest, I really loved it and it's making...

This series keeps getting better and better!

This series keeps getting better and better! I enjoyed the first two books in the series but to me, they simply felt like an introduction to heroine Drew’s vampire world. And that’s to be expected, right? Everything is new and needs to be explained. However, in BLOOD FEVER, the third...
