An Enticing Debut

Witchstruck is a book that I have been anticipating for a long time - I first saw it when it came out in the UK and was instantly intrigued. With the US release, I was very excited to finally be reading it. Witchstruck was an enticing look at history and...

Cool Debut

Transparent by Natalie Whipple is an intriguing debut that is gorgeously written. From the first line of "I nearly died the second I was born," I was hooked, and I didn't want to put it down the entire way. The plot of Transparent was bizarre - bizarre...

So Cool

What a neat neat book this is. Frankstein is a fascinating story to begin with, but pairing it with Grim Grisly's fantastic illustrations only adds more enhancement to the classic story. The illustrations are without a doubt freaky! Which is only fitting for a story such...

Stunning.

Taken has been one of my most anticipated books for ages. Everything about it drew me in - from the synopsis to the title to the stunning cover - everything about this one just demands to be read. And it does not disappoint in the least. As one of the...

Another Win

Oh Leila Sales, I will never tire of your books, even when you go off in a kind of different direction. This Song Will Save Your Life is more serious than Leila Sales other novels, and it is another absolute stunner. While I don't think it has quite beat my...

So Much Love

Post Apocalyptic Science Fiction for the win. That is all that really needs to be said about this one. Demitria Lunetta has written an absolutely win of a novel with In the After and I already cannot wait to read another book from her! In the...

Daring Debut

I have to admit - from the get go I was really intrigued about this one. The synopsis didn't 100% prepare me for everything this book was going to unleash, and that was in a good way, mostly. While I don't think Wild Awake is going to be the ultimate...

Twisted Dark Awesomeness

Twisted. Dark. And Awesome. Those three words essentially sum up Another Little Piece. Since I first heard the title and saw the enticing cover, I was anxious to read this one, and I am happy to announce that is doesn't disappoint. Another Little Piece really deals...

Powerful and Brave

Wow. What an intense and brave story to share. Trafficked is a terrifyingly honest story that delves into the horrors that most people cannot even imagine going through. Sophie Hayes doesn't shy away from what happened and puts it all out there. This is such an important...

What a cute little story this one is! Short and sweet, The Little Leftover Witch is a story that features the struggles many children have when growing up in a little more supernatural manner. This is a reprint from the original edition that was published in...

A Great Story

And here I thought that Lisa Desrocher's Personal Demons series was steamy at times - A Little Too Far blows it out of the water with a story that is a little bit risque and a lot bit hot. While the heartbroken college student is no stranger to most readers,...

A Real Gem

What an absolute little gem of a book! Rose by Holly Webb is a darling blend of magic, dreams, and the mystery that gets even lovelier with mixing in the fantastical. I loved the fast paced storyline that is constantly propelled forward by the fantastic cast of characters. ...

A Hit New Series

Playing With Fire by Bruce Hale was a fabulous start to a series. It was very different from what I was anticipating, but still turned out to be a really great read! It was my first read from Bruce Hale, and I'm very eager to check out more from him....
