My Review I have loved this series from the moment I read the first book, Aberrant!  Fantastic characters, fantastic stories, fantastic world building.  The entire story takes place in the future and, in this book, there are some familiar place names that make you understand that this is our world far in the future.  The damage […]

My Review I absolutely loved Aberrant, completely unable to put it down, so I was thrilled to get my hands on this book!  It did NOT disappoint!  The action pulls you in right from the beginning and you are right back in the midst of Olivia and Joshua’s new lives.  One of the things that I loved […]

Love, Lies, and Deception

My Review Love, Lies, and Deception was, hands down, a page turner!   Contemporary romance meets thriller, this book had plenty of both.  Alec was the epitome of a perfect lead male… strong, gorgeous, and with a mysterious past.  Marissa hasn’t had the easiest of lives in recent years, but she is intelligent and strong. […]

My Review Flames in the Midst is the debut novel of Sarah Reckenwald and a fabulous start!  I really enjoyed this book and I am definitely going to be reading the next book in the series. Jade is an interesting character, different from many lead female characters.  She is a bit socially awkward and has lived […]

My Review Much like everything, Megg Jensen writes, I loved Shucked.  This is the first young adult contemporary fiction novel from the author of the amazing fantasy saga series, Song of Eloh.  Very different from her previous work, Shucked is just as wonderful.  Tabitha is a fantastic main character, typical and extraordinary all at once.  She has all […]

Aberrant

Aberrant

My Review Aberrant takes place in the future, the dystopian society of Cabal.  It is a world that seems ideal on the surface, the premise of absolute equality for everyone.  But it is soon clear that perhaps it isn’t so ideal, with very little free will and free choice.  One of the most fundamental changes is […]

My Review While there are definitely paranormal aspects to this book, at the heart of it is a thriller.  There is romance and magic, but it is the mystery that grabbed my attention.  The story is dark with more than one disturbing moment that really added to the suspense and anticipation of the mystery.  There […]

The School for Dangerous Girls

The School for Dangerous Girls

My Review I absolutely LOVED this book!  It is very different from most of the YA that I have read… dark, gritty, and fiercely intense.  Most of the story is set at Hidden Oak, a boarding school that is really a last resort for girls considered to be unmanageable.  Many of these girls are there […]

Hereafter

Hereafter

My Review This was a fantastic read, and nothing like I expected.  At the beginning of the book, I really, and intensely disliked Irene.  She was irresponsible, immature, and more than a little on the selfish side.  I wondered how I was ever going to be able to like her, clearly the focus of the […]

My Review Breathe is the newly released novel by Elena Dillon and one that I truly loved.  “Most days I can almost forget someone murdered my sister.”  From that first line, I was hooked.  I just could not put the book down.  I loved everything about this book, especially that it made me feel so deeply […]
