World After

My Review I love that this series uses angels less as a symbol of traditional religious mythology, but more as supernatural creatures with their own motivations.  And in this book, we get a lot of answers to questions from the first book, but also have all kinds of new questions.  It isn’t quite as action-packed […]

My Review This is one of those books that I have had on my mental “to be read” piles for a long time.  I had heard lots of wonderful things about it, but it just took me awhile to get through my rather lengthy queue to get to it.  And now that I have read […]

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 Soulprint is a new sci-fi/thriller novel with an extremely fascinating premise.  It looks at the soul in an interesting way, looking at it from social and scientific viewpoints, rather than as a part of any particular spirituality.  It takes place in a world in which science has advanced to the point of being able […]

The Forgetting

The Forgetting
Posted 15 March 2015 by Kim in Book Review / 0 Comments

My Review The Forgetting was not a fluffy young adult novel, but a novel that looks at the very real issue of sex trafficking.  It is dark and often disturbing, but it is also beautiful with its moments of love and change.  Georgie has just had a heart transplant and she can’t help but feel like […]

Down from the Mountain

Down from the Mountain
Posted 2 March 2015 by Kim in Book Review / 0 Comments

My Review Down from the Mountain was a book that I didn’t expect to enjoy as much as I did.  I tend to avoid books that heavily involve religion, particularly those whose themes revolve around wrongdoings justified by religious beliefs.  But this was an extremely compelling and emotional novel. The story takes place within a fundamentalist […]
