My Review I am an unabashed fan of Emma Mills and I can’t tell you how sad I am to see this series end!  But I also can wait to see what she comes out with next.  The characters in these books have been through so much and the reader feels like they have been […]

My Review I am the Messenger is one of the more bizarre books I have ever read.  It is one of those books that caused me to question myself continually about why I was reading it, yet, at the same time, I couldn’t put it down.  Even now, having finished it, I am not sure […]

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 […]

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 […]
