Much Stronger Than the First - Loved it!

The Savage Blue was a stunning sophomore novel from Zoraida Cordova. I liked The Vicious Deep, but it failed to completely wow me. That was completely reversed with this next installment of Tristan's story! Entrancing readers from the first page, The Savage Blue is a read you won't want...

An Intriguing Story

Since I first heard about Playing Tyler, around the time I saw the stunning cover, I have been excited for it. The whole gaming concept is intriguing to me. For me though, Playing Tyler was a read that just didn't reach its full potential. I enjoyed...

A Compelling Debut

Victoria Scott has managed to take something off the well trodden path of angels and demons, and transform it into something completely new and shiny. I didn't fall in love with The Collector right away, but rather it was one of those novels that grew on me. By a short...

A Realistic Story on Love, Sex, and Relationships

Anatomy of a Boyfriend is one of the most honest books I've read out there that deals with the main character's sex life. In addition to being honest, Daria Snadowsky manages to write a story that is painfully realistic when it comes to love, sex, and relationships. ...

An Honest, Realistic Story

Even though quite a few years have passed between Anatomy of a Boyfriend and Anatomy of a Single Girl, Daria Snadowsky manages to keep Dom's voice exactly the same and I fell right back into her world. I liked Anatomy of a Single Girl even more than Anatomy of a...

A New Historical Fantasy Hit

Historical fantasy is one of my favorite genres, but it is one of the most difficult ones to get right if you ask me - and Sarah Zettel manages to nearly nail it with Dust Girl. It has the perfect amount of intrigue, adventure, and great story that features a...

A Great Read

Oh my stars - this book is way too cute. It took me right back to middle school and everything that accompanies it. I loved the fun characters that Robin Mellom has written, since they just make the story. I love the unique format - there is...

Stunning and Incredibly Powerful

When You Were Here by Daisy Whitney was such a powerful book. It tackles the hard hitting subjects of death and coping, along with acceptance, first love, and growth. I loved how flawlessly Daisy Whitney weaves in not only a new setting, but really a people's culture...

Stunning Contemp From A Favorite Author

I fell in love with Karen and Jordan's story. A beautiful story of hope, growth, and relationships. I love Julie's sci-fi Tempest series, but this one is even better. I love Julie Cross's progression as an author - she gets better with every book and it is just a treat...

Another Hit from Michaela MacColl

I love Michaela MacColl's books - they are refreshing, well written, and always an intriguing look at history. Additionally, Michaela MacColl picks people in history who aren't commonly featuring in historical fiction, which is always absolutely delightful to read about. And Nobody's Secret is her best yet - a...

A Strong MG SciFI

The Planet Thieves is a strong middle grade debut from author Dan Krokos. With it's intriguing premise and unique way it entwines a typical school story with that of saving the world, The Planet Thieves was a treat. I really enjoyed the characters, particularly the female...

So.Darn.Awesome.

Gosh, Elizabeth Eulberg never fails to impress me with her writing. Revenge of the Girl with the Great Personality is not only a well written book, but is also a story that is so important to tell. While not everyone can relate to the world of pageants, the emotions and...
