Better Together

Better Together

My Review From the moment I picked up Better Together, I was hooked!  A poignant tale of love and loss, the story completely pulls at the heart strings.  With so many books out there that center around motherhood, it was very refreshing to read a novel that centered around fatherhood instead.  Too many times, the […]

Inner Demons

Inner Demons

My Review Inner Demons is the second book in the Peachville High series by Sarra Cannon, and just as good as the first!  Once again, I couldn’t put the book down.  The first book, Beautiful Demons, ended with an excellent cliffhanger and I couldn’t wait to get back into the world of Harper Madison!  I […]

Beautiful Demons

Beautiful Demons

My Review Beautiful Demons is the first in a new series, Peachville High Demons.  From the moment I began reading, I was drawn into the world and life of Harper Madison.  She was such a sympathetic character from the very beginning, and I was totally pulled into her story, practically unable to put it down.  The […]

North of Forks

North of Forks

My Review The second in her Twelve Terrifying Tales for 2011 series, North of Forks was not at all what I expected when I saw the title and began reading the first page.  I expected a Twilight spin-off, or a parody, and this was not really either of those things.  Instead, Hammaker used the Twilight […]

Charlie

Charlie

My Review Charlie is the debut short thriller from Shana Hammaker, the first in a series called Twelve Terrifying Tales for 2011.  It had all the elements of a good thriller:  blood and guts, suspense, unexpected twists and turns.  While it was definately dark, it also had a lot of unexpected humor in the inner […]

Soul Born

Soul Born

My Review Soul Born is the first full-length novel by Kevin James Breaux, and the first of a trilogy.  From the moment, I opened this book, I was hard-pressed to put it down.  There is typically a pretty predictable formula in fantasy tales, with the battle between good and evil, the struggle for power, the quests […]

Wisdom

Wisdom

My Review I have very mixed opinions about this series as a whole, Wisdom being the fourth book.  The plot itself has great bones, with unexpected twists and turns.  Many of the subplots are just intriguing as the main story, which I think makes the story itself richer to read.  However, there are scenes here and there […]

Flutter

Flutter

My Review Flutter is the third book in the My Blood Approves series.  Once again, I like the plot of the series and I get drawn into it every time.  The story line is a strong one, with the sub plots as engaging as the main story.  There are lots of twists and turns to […]
