Goddess Interrupted

Goddess Interrupted

My Review Goddess Interrupted is the second book in the Goddess Test series, beginning six months after the first book.  There is a bridging novella, The Goddess Hunt, that covers that six month gap.  The more we get to know the different characters, the better the books get.  I love the blending of traditional Greek mythology with […]

My Review Liberty Bound is the sequel to  Prophecy Girl and was just as engaging as the first!  The world that the author created in the first book somehow becomes even more mysterious in the second.  Werewolves, seasonals, prepubescent puppetmasters, protectors, and psychotic mothers… the characters are wide and varied!  The world is our own, but […]

My Review The Goddess Hunt tells the story of Kate and James during her time away from the Underworld.  It was supposed to be a fun-filled trip to Greece, right up to the point that Kate finds herself in the middle of a feud between immortals.  And then the action begins… This book was action-packed and […]

The Goddess Test

The Goddess Test

My Review I have always loved Greek mythology and I love retellings and reimaginings of fairy tales and legends.  I got both in The Goddess Test, which makes me a very happy reader! The characters in this story were wonderful!  I love that Kate is created to be strong and independent, her own person.  She has […]

My Review I absolutely loved Seed by this author so I was happy to get this through Kindle First Reads.  It is horror at its finest, with all of the insanity, creepiness, and gore that one would expect. Everything about this book is creepy.  It starts out with a bang with death and insanity within just the […]

My Review This book was very different from what I expected!  From the blurb, I thought it was going to be the story of the spoiled little rich girl who learns what is really important in life, reminding me of Sia by Josh Grayson and The Seven Deadly series by Fisher Amelie.  Those are books that I loved […]

My Review Steeped in Evil is the latest release from Laura Childs in the long-running Tea Shop Mysteries series, the 15th book in the series since the first one was published in 2001.  So many long-running series, no matter the genre, tend to run their course well before the 15th book, but I find these books to […]

Broken Silence

My Review There is a bit of a time lapse with this sequel to Silence, beginning a few years after the last ended.  Oakley has definitely changed as a character, relearning herself now that her secrets are known and she is speaking once again.  This sequel is less young adult and more new adult now, as neither […]

Silence

My Review This book has gotten a lot of mixed reviews, but the subject matter is so different from a lot of contemporary YA fiction of the non-paranormal genre that I was intrigued.  Sometimes these intense subjects can be glossed  over or sanitized for the YA book, so I was interested to see how that […]

Note:  This book was originally titled Liar, Liar, Hearts on Fire. My Review I love these books, just plain love them!  I read a lot of YA, a lot of science fiction, a lot of fantasy, a lot of paranormal fantasy, and not nearly as much contemporary romance.  Zane combines the best of romance with a […]
