The Witch Hunter of Awesome

Rating: 4.5 Death Curses Magic, political intrigue, a subtle romance, and one bad-ass heroine who isn’t afraid to kill people! Need I say more? Oh, so you want more information than that? All right then! First I want to get into the two things...

Kissing Ted Callahan

Kissing Ted Callahan (and other guys) is as the cover would suggest super cute and swoony but my favorite thing is how real it felt. The characters are each unique but without it being in your face how each person is different. Riley is adorably awkward when...

Perfected

First I would just like to say I LOVE that cover and that it is not just beautiful but also accurately represents Perfected! Ella actually wears dresses like that all the time so it's not like some other books with dresses on the cover were the girl only wears a...

Art of Lainey

I thought Art of Lainey would be this fluffy happy cutesy romance, which it totally is, but it's also kind of serious when it comes to finding your own identity and how getting dumped is not the end of the world and can actually lead to better things. You can...

Waterfell

This is kind of hard to review because I both liked and did not like Waterfell. It has a lot of YA clichés and they ended up grating on my nerves. Clichés aside though it's really good. First lets talk about Nerissa. (Yes all the Aquarathi characters have names like...

Relic made me fall in love with the Wild West!

You would not think at first that magic and the Wild West would work well together but Renee perfectly combined these two aspects! This alternate type world was just sooo amazing! Like I'm just totally in awe of it! (At this point my review starts to sound like I didn't...

Crash (Visions #1)

Nice story. All the worrying and anxiety got a bit tiring. The romance was more of a focus then I expected but I didn't mind. I loved the whole Romeo and Juliet forbidden romance thing but I can see some people not liking how much of the book it takes...

Did not Like

The only word I can think of to describe The House of the Scorpion is weird. I give it major props for the world building but I didn't like much else. The basic plot was interesting but the exact events were to strange and offsetting. I think this may be...

My Fang Girl Reveiw

Fang Girl is Fangtastic! (sorry but I just had to say that) You should make sure you don't have anything to do before beginning Fang Girl because once you start reading you won't be able to put it down. You should also prepare for uncontrollable laughter, surprised gasps, and loud...
