Where She Went

Where She Went
Posted 16 April 2015 by Kim in Book Reviews / 0 Comments

My Review Where She Went is the second book in the If I Stay series and my favorite of the two.  It was just as emotional as the first and even more intense.  Despite the theme of death in If I Stay, there is something much darker about most of the second novel. Where She Went is told […]

If I Stay

If I Stay
Posted 15 April 2015 by Kim in Book Reviews / 0 Comments

My Review There are certain books that just emotionally drain you, and this was one of them.  There are moments of sadness, moments of happiness, moments of pain, and moments of sweetness.  It is a book whose story just stays with you. I love the way the story of If I Stay is constructed.  It is […]

My Review Warrior and the Wanderer is the first book by Elizabeth Holcombe that I have read and, although it is a genre that I don’t read much of, I enjoyed it more than I had anticipated.  It is historical romance, with a nice bit of time travel, and it made for a really fun […]

The Kill Order

The Kill Order

My Review The Kill Order is the first prequel to The Maze Runner series, soon to be followed by The Fever Code.  This book takes place 13 years prior to the events of The Maze Runner and, although I have read many reviews that expressed disappointment because of the lack of connection between this book and the trilogy, but […]

My Review Now anyone who reads my reviews knows that I am an avid fan girl of Catherine Gayle’s Portland Storm books.  I absolutely love hockey, so I appreciate a good book written around that theme.  But Catherine’s books are so  much more than hockey romance.  They are intensely emotional stories about real people.  There is […]

The Truth About Jack

The Truth About Jack

My Review The Truth About Jack is the latest from Jody Gehrman, author of the Audrey’s Guide books.  It is told from the altering points of view of Jack and Dakota, two teenagers with very different voices. The author is great at creating complex characters, characters with their own stories and issues and little quirks.  There were many […]

My Review The Death Cure… the end to a series that I really enjoyed.  And I did enjoy this book, although I am still not sure how I feel about the conclusion!! I have mixed feelings, but I have to wonder if perhaps that is exactly how the author meant us to feel.  These books […]

The Scorch Trials

The Scorch Trials

My Review The Maze Runner had me hooked from the beginning and The Scorch Trials kept that going.  This one was non-stop action and even more of the mysteries of the world they live in are revealed. The Gladers have been told that their trials are over now, but in reality, they are just beginning.  There is no […]

The Maze Runner

The Maze Runner
Posted 5 April 2015 by Kim in Book Reviews / 0 Comments

My Review This is one of the few books that I read AFTER seeing the movie, the movie making me want to read it when I previously had no interest.  And I loved it and the premise of the story. The story opens with Thomas, locked in a metal box-like lift that is moving through […]
