Review for Gated by Amy Christine Parker

Review for The Farm (The Farm #1) by Emily McKay

I came across this a while back, and was excited to pick it up. From the blurb I was curious as to what exactly a Tick was, and what they did to the humans and how Lily and Mel were going to escape it all. I got the answers, and...

Definitely pick this one up

This is second installment of the Darklight series. And it does start out with the scene of Lorelei when she was younger and learning how she was the host of one of Satan’s minions, which pretty much sets up the pace for the rest of the book. ...

Have to read this

I have seen for a while and all the talk about it, so I knew I had to read it, and I have to say that I am glad I did. I am all for the “bad boy”, but Dante was one character that I had a hard time...

An emotion inducing read.

As weird as it might sounds, I am always drawn to these types of books. The mind is a fascinating thing, and what goes on up there is always interesting to me. After reading the synopsis, I knew I had to read this and find out what happened to Angie...

Enchanting and magical

This is one those stories that I don’t where to being to tell you about. It took me by surprise to say the least. The synopsis just doesn’t do it justice. There is so much more to this story. Lora is a young girl that has been...
