Can't Wait For The Next One

I love The Rules by Stacey Kade, it has everything I love in a YA book plus so much more. The Rules is full of twists and turns, romance (not the insta-love kind), emotion, aliens (sort of), and adventure. The Plot ...

Can't put it down

Great book, I loved it. If you’re looking for a dystopia novel with deep meaning and strong emotion, then this book may not be for you. However, if you like a fun quick read that has romance, action and a little mystery; you might like Stung. The mystery coupled with...

Nameless

Nameless was a very different telling of the snow white story. Different from any I have read so far and I liked it. It was a weird mix of mobster like families, paranormal, mystery, romance, a mix of old and new. The story kept me interested, no dull boring parts,...

A wonderful read

Brilliant, riveting, and beautiful is how I would describe Cruel Beauty. Rosamund Hodge has created an amazingly wonderful story of love, mystery, duty, and myth. Nyx’s father made a deal with the devil so to speak and for it she must bear the consequences. On her...
