Unexpected and Refreshing

Oh my goodness, The Holders by Julianna Scott is a debut that is going to take the world by storm. If you are looking for a kick-ass heroine and some epic mythology wrapped up in a unique fantasy world, look no further! I loved Becca. She...

I Didn't Want to Put It Down!

Hysteria by Megan Miranda was a pretty good read. I started it, thinking I would only read just a few pages. Big mistake! Once I started, I was basically instantly hooked and all I wanted to do was just read it. It made concentrating on a huge term paper a...

Loved It

Anna Banks doesn't waste a moment jumping right back into the action that was left interrupted at the brutal ending to Of Poseidon. Back with another witty tale, Anna Banks will take readers by storm with this excellent sequel to Of Poseidon. From the first page, things...

Simply Brilliant

Oh my goodness, Crewel is one of the most intense, fast paced books I think I've ever read. Gennifer Albin wastes no time and jumps right into the action. Instantly readers are swept up into the world of the Guild to build one of the most fantastic books I've read...

A Super Cute Read

I love Amanda Ashby's books. They are always so much fun and have a great story to tell. Wishful Thinking is no different. Sophie is a super fun main character who I am excited to follow throughout the rest of the trilogy. I love the liberties Amanda...

Amazing. Just Amazing.

Something Like Normal is one of those books that drew out all the feelings and was just so wonderful. When I read it, I had been in a slump where nothing was really keeping my attention. That all changed when I opened Something Like Normal. I was instantly drawn into...

Awesome and Even More Intriguing

While this series is still not held in quite the same esteem as the Vampire Academy series for me, The Golden Lily was pretty darn good. Richelle Mead really raises the stakes that ensures an epic adventure that Sydney and her crew will be a part of. ...

A Simply Brilliant Ending

Holy macaroni! I was so nervous for this one. Last Sacrifice by Richelle Mead was the book I preordered, let sit on my shelf, longed to read but never did. I love this series so much, and I just didn't want to see it end. I should have long ago...

Another Great Start to a Series from Richelle Mead

Bloodlines by Richelle Mead was an interesting read - it is so very different from the Vampire Academy series. At first it was a bit slower on the action, but the last third of the book completely makes up for the lack of action at the beginning. It was intense...

Beautiful. Realistic. And Touching.

Things I Can't Forget is very different from Miranda Kenneally's other books. This one spoke to me more than the other two: it was raw and real. I will admit I was a bit nervous about starting it. Had it not been a Miranda Kenneally book, there is a chance...

Even Better Than the First

I enjoyed Brodi Ashton's debut, Everneath, but that one does not come near the brilliance of its sequel Everbound. It is thrilling, exciting, and completely unpredictable. Everbound is everything I was hoping for in a sequel to Everneath and more. Stunning, completely stunning. Every card was...

A Stunning Debut

Hooked is exactly the right title for this one, because hooked is what I was from page one on. Liz Fichera has written a masterpiece about the troubles of high school, acceptance, and how to be yourself. Hooked is a complete story of opposites. There are essentially...
