My Review This book was… amazing.  For heart wrenching novels, this is right up there with The Fault in Our Stars and Love and Other Unknown Variable, two of my favorite novels of 2014.  It touches the soul, it touches the heart, and leaves you reeling.  I started it in the morning and didn’t put it down again […]

My Review City of Glass is the third book in The Mortal Instruments series and it is my favorite thus far!  So much action, so much intrigue, so many twists and turns! There are some new characters in this book, some of which have turned the story line of the series on end.  Bad guys, good […]

My Review I expected this book to be a lighthearted “chick lit” book with a crafty twist, and it was.  But it was also much more.  Not only were the characters well-developed, but the storylines were much deeper than I would have expected.  The crafty twist was there, but was definately second to the real […]
