Fantastic Sci-Fi

When I started reading Beyond Our Stars I was blown away by the writing. It’s a short novel coming in at 111 pages but it sucked me in almost immediately and I felt like I could picture their world. I felt stressed from the encounter with the locals and my...

As Fab as Vegas

I’ve never seen a book written the way that The Secret Diamond Sisters is. Four different point of views which of course are the three Diamond sisters Savannah, Courtney and Peyton. I was surprised though when I reached mean girl Madisons part in the book. I was like this is...

Fast Paced Thrill

I felt like Fire and Flood by Victorica Scott is a little bit like taking The Amazing Race and throwing in some Digimons. Then tossing them on the island that Survivor was filmed on. It’s crazy awesome. I kept having dreams about being in the Brimestone Bleed myself and let...

Great Retelling

So I admit, I don’t think I have read the original Oliver Twist which is what Olivia Twisted by Vivi Barnes is a redo of. I much rather read this version though, ha ha. I definitely loved it. There are things I recognized from the classic novel though so I...

I love these books

These books are definitely more about the Adventure and Mystery then they are romance. Which is not to say there isn’t swoonworthy romance because there is it just doesn't take precedence. I loved Katharine, she is this unbelievable kick butt character but in a way her hands...

Enjoyed it

I love an author who can transport me into the world that I’m reading about. I feel like that is the case with Lea Nolan’s Allure. Honestly there were moments where I thought I talk with a southern accent. I felt like I was totally absorbed into the world while...

Great Fantasy

I was surprised that a book as sprawling and epic as this one is only book one in the series. It makes me giddy to think that we are going to continue on with the characters and world that I found myself instantly drawn into. The Burning Sky speaks well...

Great Second Book

There’s nothing like a good steampunk that mixes magic and history, Charmed Vengeance by Suzanne Lazear is exactly that. I love most things that have fairy lore because there are so many variations on it but there are always the basic elements. The fairy courts, the wlydwood and Tiana. I...
