The Accident Season

The Accident Season
Posted 17 August 2015 by Kim in Book Review / 0 Comments

My Review This was a strange, but intriguing book.  There were moments when it was like reading through an altered state, as if Cara isn’t always 100% in the present.  In places, there was prose that reminded me a bit of Sarah McCarry’s All Our Pretty Songs.  The lines of between reality and that which is imagined […]

My Review I truly love the Portland Storm books and I am never disappointed by them!  The stories are beautifully written, with all of the romance you could ever want right along with deep, emotionally intense issues.  And this one was so much more than romance,..  This is the story of a little girl who refused to […]

My Review Forgotten Things is the debut full-length novel by author Stephen Mullaney-Westwood.  It is a beautiful story woven between the reality that we all know and that inhabited by the creatures of lore that so many of us dismiss.  It is a coming-of-age story that centers around Adam and his friends Martin and Josh.  Adam has just moved […]

My Review I am a huge fan of Catherine Gayle’s hockey-themed romances!  I have read every one that she is written and they are each amazing reads.  The knowledge that the author has of hockey and the behind-the-scenes of it all is obvious and seen in the incredible attention to detail.  But the stories aren’t […]

Ink and Bone

Ink and Bone
Posted 7 July 2015 by Kim in Book Review / 0 Comments

My Review Ink and Bone is the first book in the new Great Library series and it is such an interesting premise, rewriting history in a way that is absolutely intense for anyone who truly loves the written word. In this world, knowledge, or too much of it, is seen as almost a disease, the foundation of ruin […]

My Review One of the first things that struck me about Modern Montsers was the voice, that of a teenage male and something that there is not enough of in YA literature.  And that voice was convincing and empathetic. Vic is not the stereotypical YA hero and I LOVED that.  His best friend is one of […]

It wasn’t just her city that was destroyed, but the way of life all […]

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 […]
