My Review This is such a fun series to read!  The story surrounds the Spellspinners, witches and warlocks that have been separated into two communities and cursed.  They have been given 100 years to fulfill a destiny of change or their magic is lost forever.  Magic and curses are not a new premise, but the […]

My Review Wow, just wow!  This book was so intense to read, so personally emotional.  I identified with so much of this book, and that made for an emotional roller coaster of a read.  The bullying, the rumors… so much of it resonated with me, which made it that much more powerful to read. This […]

My Review This was a very interesting book that left me feeling conflicted.  There were things that I loved about it, things that I was a little put off by, things that tore my heart apart.  This is a book about sisters and family, more than love and romance… a true departure from YA literature. […]

My Review As in the other books, we meet some new characters this time and get to know others a lot better.  This book focuses on Genevieve, a brilliant and slightly nerdy MIT student, and Chad, a somewhat broken vampire.  Genevieve really blossoms in this story, but even her growth doesn’t make her lose the […]

My Review I have mixed emotions about this book.  Parts of it I truly loved and other parts… not so much.  Let me preface this by saying that I love, love, love seeing YA fiction that addresses the LBGTQ community.  There needs to be more of it!  That is 100% of the reason I requested this […]

My Review My Not So Super Sweet Life is very different from the first two books in the series, but just as wonderful to read!  The first book, My Super Sweet Sixteenth Century, featured Cat as the narrator and center of the story.  The second, A Tale of Two Centuries, was told by Alessandra as she went […]

My Review Having recently read the classic Peter Pan, I was intrigued by the idea of a retelling of that story.  I am a sucker for fairy tale retellings and this is the first one I have come across that is based on that story. Second Star is tells a very different story than that of […]

My Review Wicked Kiss is the second book in the Nightwatchers series by author Michelle Rowan.  The cover of this newest novel is just as stunning as that of Dark Kiss.  Pretty gorgeous! The “insta-love” in this book has definitely been tempered.  There are issues with Bishop and Samantha, and then there is Kraven…!  I wont go into that […]
