Five Days Left

Five Days Left
Posted 28 August 2014 by Kim in Book Review / 0 Comments

My Review Words like “wonderful” and phrases like ” I loved it” seem somehow wrong.  Both of those things are true, but there is so much bittersweet emotion that these words seem like the wrong descriptors for this book. Five Days Left tells two tales, the stories of two people who know each other only in […]

My Review I have really enjoyed this series and I am sad to see it end!  I thought Ascend was a perfect conclusion, especially with the bonus short story at the end.  The world that was created was so interwoven with our own that it made it hard not to believe in the possibilities! Wendy is […]

Torn

My Review Torn begins as Switched finishes.  This is an apt title for this book, as it is all about Wendy being torn between the people she loves and her destiny.  She struggles to decide what the right choices are, knowing that the wrong choice could destroy her world… both of her worlds. She is conflicted, unsure […]

Switched

My Review I loved the fantasy world that Amanda Hocking created in the worrld of the Trylle.  It is a complex society that lives within our own world, completely off the grid for most humans.  I read a lot of fantasy and rarely have I come across a world featuring trolls, especially depicted as socially […]

My Review I have loved this series since the very first book!  Hockey and romance and real issues… what’s not to love?!  Cam is a fabulous romantic hero, strong and powerful, yet a big softie at heart.  Sara is a great character, totally devoted to her father and carrying a bit of baggage of her […]

The Winter People

My Review The Winter People was such an absorbing read!  There was no end to the magic and the mystery, all wrapped in a little bit of romance and teenage angst and family drama! There was so much misdirection in the story.  One moment, I was sure I knew who filled what role… the bad […]

Strange and Ever After

Strange and Ever After
Posted 11 August 2014 by Kim in Book Review / 0 Comments

My Review As the last book in this trilogy, Strange and Ever After neatly wrapped all of the loose ends with a conclusion that was largely satisfying, although unexpected.  The pace was picked up in this book, with all kinds of twists and turns that took the story into new and uncharted territory. The book begins in […]

My Review This is the second full-length novel in the Something Strange and Deadly series.  The Spirit Hunters have left Philadelphia and Eleanor is thrust into a new life without anyone but herself to depend on.  So much has changed for her, and yet Eleanor proves herself to be as strong as ever as she faces it […]

A Dawn Most Wicked

A Dawn Most Wicked
Posted 11 August 2014 by Kim in Book Review / 0 Comments

My Review This is a short novella centered around Daniel Sheridan, a bit of a prequel that tells us a little bit about his past.  We meet his first love, Cass, and we learn how he came to be a part of the Spirit Hunters. In Something Strange and Deadly, it is clear that Daniel has […]
