Hurricane

I enjoyed this book, but was also confused. It had a good plot, but at the beginning I was like "Um.. I thought this was supposed to be about a Hurricane. Am I reading the right book?" But then I read farther into it and figured out, that yes I...

Bleep!!! It's Supernaturally!

I loved this book!! I had recently read Paranormalcy and I found Kiersten White's humor, very entertaining. I have recently been looking at all her blog posts and vlogs, and you could hear her humor throughout the whole book. The plot was interesting. She changed it up from Paranormalcy...

Twisted

I, like most other fans, thought the series were over. We were shocked into disbelief at how the last book ended and thought it was the easiest and perfect way to end the series. But Miss Shepard had other ideas. She was plotting more ways to bring the Pretty Little...

Enclave

I really liked this book. It was different than all of the other books I have been reading lately. It was more dark and mysterious, things I usually stay away from. I won this book from Caster Girls blog ( http://www.stumbleupon.com/su/3LNGnJ/castergirls.com/winners-of-the-near-witch-giveaway/ ) And I flipped out when I saw...
