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...

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...

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...
