I really enjoyed this one, but there wasn't anything that completely made it original. I mean, I connected with Skye, and I liked the tension with the triangle being Devin and Asher. I personally liked Asher a lot more because he is dark, handsome, and the...

Powerful and emotional contemporary that had me to the last page and wanting, no, needing more.

Wow, this is a powerful story. I completely felt for Faith and her upbringing. Although I will admit at first it was out of spite for her Mom that she was having her stop smoking and drugs while pregnant, but I saw that her heart really...

Layered and exciting 2nd book of a series with an awesome and dangerous female main character.

Given it has been a bit from reading Throne of Glass, honestly all I remember was that I loved it, Celaena was kick ass and I adored her, and there was a love triangle that I liked and I think I was rooting for the underdog....

Emotional journey of self-discovery.

I really enjoyed this one. It was much deeper than I expected, because of the title and the cover, I was expecting more of a beach read, but that is okay. I liked what I got. Parker is a main...

Awesome witty writing style, a bittersweet character driven story.

Loved Ezra's voice... Funny and captivating. Exactly what a male protagonist should be. The first person pov works well here, and Robyn Schneider the author is a great storyteller through Ezra. Ezra was sarcastic and tragic, making heavy and light of just the right things. He...

I had my issues, but I couldn't put the story down.

I was confused at first by all the terminology and the groups of people. Even though the synopsis tells a bit, I still was floundering. But the letters between Elliot (also confused me a bit, because she is a girl) and Kai when they were children...

Chilling story of survival

The set-up is so creepy, I cannot imagine these aliens, Them. They are so strong, but Amy luckily finds their weaknesses and even though her parents don't survive, their eccentricities from life helps her to survive in this almost post-apocalyptic setting. At first Amy thinks she is...

Good story about an important issue of be careful what you put in a text or online.

enjoyed this emotional book by Jennifer Brown. Thousand Words deals with a touchy subject, and the consequences of a decision, that led to criminal charges, a reputation ruined, and bullying. I especially enjoyed the friendship that developed between Ashleigh and Mack. He was surrounded by mystery and I...

Great characters and world building, can't wait for the next one.

Linked had a great pace that had me flipping pages, having to know what would happen next. The chapters ended with mini-cliffies and I never wanted to put it down. It is in 3rd person POV, but I didn't even notice until chapter eleven and this is from a 1st...

Insomnia brings something new and original to the table, and it is an addicting read. I didn't want to put it down and wanted to know what would happen next. I chose to read Insomnia because I was intrigued by the concept,...

Emotional and powerful novel about friendship, love, grief, pain and healing.

Love. That is the theme of this book and it is explored in so many ways. It's neat to see the many ways that love can be dysfunctional through the families that hurt one another, and then the sharp contrast of another family who tragedy pulls them...

Good second book with some hot scenes.

I couldn't decide between 3.5 and 4, so I went with four because of Sam and the ending. Got started with an emotional beginning, mourning those lost in Templedark. They had monuments made and did memorials. Asunder also showed different people grieving their losses...

Slow in places but amazing ending.

The beginning was a little slow for me, because honestly it has been so long and only certain details stuck with me. I skimmed some of the book but was totally immersed in others. I think that once I got into...

Great start to a series I can't wait to keep reading. Action, romance and a courageous main characte

It started right with action and by connecting me to the main character. I liked Ana because she is different, that she questions instead of blindly accepting things, and also because I felt for her because of the way that her mom treated her. ...
