A great sequel to a fantastic series. Loved it!

Rachel Hawkins, you’ve done it again! I loved this book! It’s easily just as good as the first, which is often a difficult task to accomplish. Hawkins does a great job at delving deeper into Sophie’s family history and tons of new characters show up that really cause a stir...

Filled with drama and intrigue, but too drawn out and a bit boring at times

I was really going through a historical fiction kick for a minute there so when I heard about this book, I jumped at the chance to read it. Tudor history is always interesting and filled with drama and deceit, of which, this book did not disappoint. However, I wasn’t too...

Worth your time, intriguing and witty

I really didn’t know what to expect going into this book, but in the end I was a happy reader. Myra does a great job of catching your attention right from the start with Emerson and her power. At first, you think it’s just a girl who can see ghosts,...

A bit slow at first, but intriguingly original

You know when I heard Alyson Noel wrote another book, I had to check it out. Fated, the first in her new Soul Seekers series, is a story about Daire, a teenage girl who discovers that she comes from a soul seekers, a sort of special being that deals with...

A sweet and sad story I couldn’t put down

I knew what to expect going into this, but in the end I was still like “OMG?!?! NOOOOOOOOO!!!!!” (in a good way). Oh Jen, you sure know how to stir up some crazy emotions with your suspense, drama, romance, and fantasy-filled books. In this prequel, you get...

A very weird and pointless book that I had to really force myself to finish

I really wanted to like this book. The cover is mysterious and draws you in and Nova’s writing is artistic and unique, but that’s where the praise stops. The story basically makes no sense. There’s direction or meaning and everything seemed so random and pointless to me. I seriously struggled...

A thrilling and original novel that I couldn’t put down

I was captured from the very first page! A truly memorable tale that had me at the edge of my seat, holding my breath, and flipping through the pages like there was no tomorrow. I couldn’t put it down. Dawn is the perfect female lead. Not only is she innocent...

A fast-paced, exciting read about time travel that will leave you wanting more

Now, it’s been quite awhile since I read Hourglass and I have to admit that I was pretty confused for like the first quarter of the book. I’d highly recommend you re-read Hourglass because Myra dives right into it without giving details of what really happened in the last book....

A surprising page-turner with an intriguing plot and characters

I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this book. I pretty much finished Beautiful Dark in one sitting. Now that’s not to say it was an epic story that you have to read right now, but for some reason I was compelled to turn the pages to see what...

Amazing story about witches, conspiracies, and how far you’d go to protect the family you love

Maybe because it’s been awhile since I read about witches or maybe it was because Jessica focused on a time period where witchcraft was still misunderstood, but I really enjoyed this book. Jessica did a great job creating this world where witches live in secret and the community is ruled...

Very original and fun, I enjoyed every minute of it

Seeing as how this was my first “mermaid” book, I’d have to say I’m impressed and definitely want to read more books like this. I loved that it was told from a “merman’s” perspective, you know how I love those male POVs, and the fact that they’re portrayed as villains...

An adorable love story with sweet and charming characters

I know what you’re thinking, two people meet and fall in love within 24 hours?! That’s so unrealistic and cliched. But Jennifer does an amazing job at creating Hadley and Oliver’s love story, you can’t help but fall for them. They definitely didn’t fall in love instantly, although there was...

A unique and cute story about true love, death, and fate

I didn’t know what to expect going into this book. I give credit to Jess for creating a pretty unique story and a good set of characters. I loved Brie, she is funny, snarky, and every bit the typical teen who has to face a tragedy, without the annoying parts....

Great book for nostalgia, but the rest was just fluff

I wanted to like this book. Really I did. I loved the nostalgia. AOL. CD-ROMs. The whole nine yards. I remember when Facebook first came out and the good old days when I had dial-up internet. It was definitely great to reminisce and think how simple a time it was....

If you walk into this thinking it’ll be another paranormal book with some romance and darkness in it, you’ll be sadly mistaken. Sure there are some weird things that happen and you can kind of get the mystery and paranormal aspect that is supposed to be behind it all, but...
