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 About a Girl is the third book in Sarah McCarry’s Metamorphoses series, telling of a third generation.  The first book, All Our Pretty Songs, tells the stories of Aurora and her nameless best friend.  The second book, Dirty Wings, tells the stories of Cassie and Maia, the mother sof Aurora and her friend.  This book tells the […]

My Review Gathering Frost is the first novel in Kaitlyn Davis’ new series, Once Upon a Curse.  It tells the story of Jade, once a happy little girl living in New York Ciry until an earthquake shakes her world in unimaginable ways. It wasn’t just her city that was destroyed, but the way of life all […]

My Review The Last Changeling is the first book in the new Faerie Revolutions series and I love the fact that it is so much more than a YA fantasy romance novel.  At its heart, it is a story about equality and standing up for what is right.  It is about fighting prejuice and making the […]

My Review This was my favorite book of the series this far.  There is a lot of action, a lot of unexpected moments, and a whole lot of frustration!!  The story twisted and turned so many times and I honestly don’t know where it is going to go next. Emma’s very being is the focus […]

My Review I think that these books get better with each installment!  There were plot points in the first that I wasn’t crazy about, but as the books progress the more those points are developed and the more sense they make. The main character, Emma, has grown a lot from the first book and that […]

Descent

My Review This novella takes place before the events of the first book, but I definitely think it should be read as it was published… after reading the first book. In a lot of ways, I think I enjoyed the novella more than I did the first book.  It takes place over a long period […]

My Review Hidden Wings is the first in a new series by author Cameo Renae, based around the hidden world of angels.  Overnight, Emma’s world has totally shifted and she is thrust into a new world that she hadn’t known truly existed. This is a book that I have mixed feelings about.  For the most […]

Merminia

My Review There is something about the word underneath the waves that is so alluring to me.  The salt water, the sand, the beauty of a world so deep that those of us with legs rarely get to experience it.  This book had all of that and so much more. Merminia is the story of […]

The Purest of the Breed

The Purest of the Breed

My Review I think I enjoyed this book even more than the first!  I am not usually into the whole alpha male concept, but the blend of the badass, hypermasculine men and the unexpected soft side really works.  Nowhere else but in a Community novel will you find such gorgeous specimens of man beasts who are […]
