My Review I loved everything about Don’t Kiss the Messenger!  For me, this story was very much driven by the varied cast of characters.  I loved that they weren’t cast as ideals, but with the flaws and hangups that we all can relate to. CeCe Edmonds was in a devasting crash that left her scarred in […]

My Review The Bone Witch is a beautiful book, telling the story of Tea as she discovers that she is an asha, one with very rare abilities.  The writing is lyrical and descriptive, allowing you to see the world through Tea’s eyes.  It is written in two alternating points of view and the voices are very […]

Daughter of the Pirate King
Posted 6 March 2017 by Kim in Book Review / 0 Comments

My Review Half the reason I requested this galley was because of the pirates.  Even better was the fact that the lead pirate in the novel is a girl.  There are not enough pirates of any gender in YA literature! Alosa is the daughter of the new pirate king and the captain of her own […]

My Review When I was offered the chance to read the ARC of this by Entangled Publishing, I jumped at it!  I’m all about any book that features hockey at any level of the game.  And it is a book that yanked me in from the very first page. There is a lot to love […]

My Review The Fifth Petal is the second book in The Lace Reader series.  I really enjoyed the first book, especially with its setting of Salem and the witch history.  This novel is set several years into the future and it features some new characters along with some from the first book. Callie is at the […]

My Review Love and First Sight is the first I’ve read by author Josh Sundquist.  I read it in less than a day because I just couldn’t put it down.  It is a gripping story with fabulous characters and an even ore fabulous story. So much of YA fiction focuses on girls so I was […]

My Review I am an unabashed fan of Emma Mills and I can’t tell you how sad I am to see this series end!  But I also can wait to see what she comes out with next.  The characters in these books have been through so much and the reader feels like they have been […]
