Daughter of the Pirate King

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 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 A List of Cages is beautifully written, telling the story of two boys whose lives have crossed once again.  Their lives have intersected at times of pain and sorrow, but it is their unlikely friendship that changes both of their lives.  This is a novel that will stick with you for a very […]

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 […]

My Review Smoke Signals is the second book in the Tulsa Thunderbirds series, a spinoff and companion series to Catherine Gayle’s fantastic Portland Storm series.  And like all of the books in these two series, this novel combines love, steamy romance, hockey, and real life issues that hit hard. I love hockey and I love novels about hockey. […]

My Review I loved everything about this book!  The setting, the story line, the characters… all of it! I originally picked this book because I have a soft spot for all things Hawaiian.  I lived there 18 years ago and I am about to move back, so I love to read about the place I […]

My Review I truly enjoy this series!  I loved The Winter People and I love this sequel just as much!  The author creates characters that are so complex and so realistic.  Even as dark as the story is, it is beautiful with its weaving of our own reality and the dark reality of the Fae world. […]

My Review I’m not going to lie… half the reason I requested this galley from NetGalley was because of the location of the story.  It takes place in the Monterey Bay area, one of my former stomping ground in my former soldier life.  I love the area and I was happy to read a book […]
