Soul Crossed

My Review This book was such a twist on the usual angels and demons storyline.  It was the kind of story that almost redefines the ideas of what is evil or what is good.  There are sometimes just no clear lines. The story opens with a bang, with Josh finding himself in Hell immediately after […]

The Great Zoo of China
Posted 10 February 2015 by Kim in Book Review / 0 Comments

My Review I am honestly not sure how I feel about this book.  It is very reminiscent of Jurassic Park, just on a larger scale with much more intrigue and, if it is possible, more action.  The premise is fascinating, the lengths to which China would go in order to become a cultural superpower.  The prologue […]

My Review Since You’ve Been Gone is a book that touches on some real issues and, for the most part, deals with them in an authentic way.  Edie and her mother Sydney have been living on the run, escaping her violent father.  The way their life has been described is so real… the hiding, the half […]

My Review First Frost picks up several years after the magical Garden Spells.  Things have changed for the Waverly women, and little Bay is in high school now.  Magic is still afoot and it is so delightful to read each Waverly’s journey with the family magic and how it works for each of them. I like […]

When

When

My Review The premise of When was fantastic!  Maddie is a 16yo girl, gifted/cursed with a unique psychic ability.  She has the ability to see the death dates of people, both when she sees them and in photographs.  The dates appear as small numbers floating near the forehead.  Her gift/curse doesn’t allow her to see the […]

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 […]

Rite of Rejection

My Review Rite of Rejection is a beautifully written YA dystopian novel, the first from Sarah Negovetich.  I became thoroughly engrossed with this book from the moment I started reading it!  The characters were interesting, the story premise was disturbing in its potential reality, and the action was on point. We meet the heroine Rebecca at a crucial moment […]

My Review Anomaly is the debut novel of author Tonya Kuper and the first in a new series, Schrodinger’s Consortium.  Unless you are crazy knowledge about various deep principles of science, that series title probably won’t mean much… until you read the story!  I love science fiction that just seems like it just might be possible! […]

The Red Bishop

My Review The Red Bishop was such an interesting read.  Lake Price is the epitome of a slightly out of control teenage girl, and rightfully so.  Four years ago, her older brother was kidnapped from his bedroom and never seen again.  It has left Lake on a bit of an emotional rollercoaster.  On one hand, she […]

My Review I have very mixed feelings about this book.  I enjoyed it, but there were some parts that didn’t ring true for me and that colored the rest of the story for me. What I absolutely loved was a female protagonist that was both crazy brilliant and flawed.  Lyra was more than a little socially […]
