Heartfelt and Fun

MY THOUGHTS I picked up this up after hearing some raving reviews and reading the description! It sounded like a powerful contemporary with a little bit of mystery. This book was what I expected, and more. It had sad parts to it, but this was also a really cute...

Cute, but It's Your Typical YA Contemporary, Just With a Few More Booknerdiness

MY THOUGHTS When I first heard about this book, of course I wanted to read it. It's a contemporary romance for the POV of a booknerd! I thought this book was adorable, though, sadly, it felt like your average contemporary. Just with a few more booknerdiness added. ...

Another Great Time Travel Read

MY THOUGHTS I love books with time travel, so once I found out about this book, I couldn't wait to read it! I honestly didn't know what to expect from this book, besides the time travel, so I was able to be surprised by the plot. I ended up...

A Very Unique and Dark Fantasy

MY THOUGHTS Going into this book, I didn't know what to expect. I've disliked books and enjoyed books by this author. The Firelight trilogy was meh to me, but I enjoyed Uninvited (the sequel is another series). I am happy to say that I was pleasantly surprised by this...

A Great Addition to the Series

MY THOUGHTS I love this series, and the original Shadow Falls series! So, of course I was more than happy to read this set of novellas that take place in the Shadow Falls world! I've already read a few of the novellas, because they were ebooks before they...

A Great Addition to the Series

I adore the Shadow Falls series, so I grabbed this book right away when I realized it existed! What I find really interesting about this novella is that it's like a novel. Sure, it's short, but most novellas are only filler. They are intended to give...

An Imaginative Retelling

MY THOUGHTS I've read all of Jessica Khoury's books, and enjoyed them, but this one is by far my favorite. Honestly, I loved this book! It's such a fantastic retelling and really, I loved everything about it! I'll try to write this review without flailing. ...

A Fantastic Book on a Tough Subject

MY THOUGHTS After reading the synopsis, I had to read this book. This book spans only 54 horrifying minutes of a school shooting. I was very curious as to how this book would be put together and how it would tackle such a tough subject. I thought it...

Annoying Romance, but Overall a Great, Magical Read

MY THOUGHTS I've been waiting to read this book for almost two years, when the book was titled "Library Jumpers". That was all I needed to know in order to need this book! This book wasn't as much as I hoped for, mostly due to the romance, but...

Just as Amazing as I Expected

MY THOUGHTS I've had such luck with books lately! This book has been yet another anticipated read that met, maybe even exceeded my high expectations! Lee has always been able to detect gold, enough gold to keep her family safe. She's kept it a secret, but...

My Favorite of the Series!

MY THOUGHTS This is a very interesting series, definitely unique among all the paranormal clones so I was excited to pick the conclusion to this series up. It took a bit for me to get into at first, due to book amnesia, but once I did, I found...
