Easy by Tamara Webber

Easy was just that; an easy, thrilling read. From the moment I first cracked open the book, I was enthralled and couldn't wait for more. What I loved most about it, was how it not only took me on a thrilling ride in the world of fiction,...

Stealing Parker by Miranda Kenneally

Miranda Kenneally is one of those authors you can grow comfortable with. Meaning you can hear she's coming out with a new title and automatically pre-order it without even having to read the synopsis. Her words in this title have proven my point. Stealing Parker is an amazing read...

Time Between us by Tamara Ireland Stone

I picked this up because someone told me it was The Time Traveler's Wife for YA and I have been in the mood for a really swoony, moving romance for awhile now. And this one held its ground and certainly lived up to all the hype that it has...

Elixir by Jennifer L. Armentrout

(Warning: If you have not read Deity, you will not understand this novella!) Where to start?! Of course I LOVED it because everyone knows I LOVE Aiden. But this novella from his POV was very hard to read. It was gut wrenching...

Unspoken by Sarah Rees Brenan

This was definitely a fun read. As someone who studied journalism, I could understand Kami and her need to know everything. I connected with her right away. Even if I did think she was a llittle crazy in the beginning. When we first...

The Evolution of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin

Last year my favorite read of the year was "The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer," because it was just totally mind-blowing. So, when this one finally got a title and cover, I was jumping up and down in excitement. But, there was still that little thought in my mind that I...

I cannot lie and say I absolutely loved this book, because that is just not the case. But what I can say is that I did enjoy it. It takes you on a wild ride, but you can only barely enjoy it because to me the author writes with out...

Finale (Hush, Hush #4) by Becca Fitzpatrick

Finally, the conclusion to the Hush, Hush series. I really don't know how to feel right now. I remember reading the first book back before I was even a blogger, right after I had read Twilight and was looking for any type of paranormal romance there was. Now here...

Ten by Gretchen McNeil

This book totally caught me by surprise. At first I was kind of "iffy" on what I was thinking about it because I felt like the writing was kind of wonky, but then, it got better. Loads better. In this tale, the author spins...
