City of Heavenly Fire

City of Heavenly Fire

My Review I have loved this series and I think that City of Heavenly Fire just might be my favorite of the entire series.  There was a ton of action, a lot of tearjerking moments, love, sacrifice, and twists and turns that I never saw coming.  And I loved every moment of it! Very little about […]

When Heaven Fell

When Heaven Fell

My Review I picked up this book as part of an independent reading assignment for a children’s literature assignment on multiculturalism.  I loved it so much I wanted to share it here. A full disclaimer… in my previous life, I was a Vietnamese linguist in the US Army.  Because of that, I fell in love […]

Breaking Creed

Breaking Creed

My Review This was my first book by Alex Kava, and it won’t be my last.  Breaking Creed is the first novel in the new Ryder Creed series.  Kava’s Maggie O’Dell (from the series with the same name) is also in this book.  Even though I haven’t read the other series, there was no problem with […]

Since You’ve Been Gone

Since You’ve Been Gone

My Review Since You’ve Been Gone is a book that touches on some real issues and, for the most part, deals with them in an authentic way.  Edie and her mother Sydney have been living on the run, escaping her violent father.  The way their life has been described is so real… the hiding, the half […]

First Frost

First Frost

My Review First Frost picks up several years after the magical Garden Spells.  Things have changed for the Waverly women, and little Bay is in high school now.  Magic is still afoot and it is so delightful to read each Waverly’s journey with the family magic and how it works for each of them. I like […]

Lucid

Lucid

My Review This book was very different from pretty much anything I have read before!  I just don’t know how I feel about it.  It is a book that makes you think, the story line so unusual and so gripping.  I was totally engrossed, just needing to know what was happening.  But the book was a complete […]

All The Butterflies in the World

All The Butterflies in the World

My Review All The Butterflies in the World picked up right at the same moment as the previous book ended.  John and Tess are face to face and it is clear that the Butterfly Effect is in play.  While I am fascinated with that theory, it almost made me a little sad to know that the […]

When

When

My Review The premise of When was fantastic!  Maddie is a 16yo girl, gifted/cursed with a unique psychic ability.  She has the ability to see the death dates of people, both when she sees them and in photographs.  The dates appear as small numbers floating near the forehead.  Her gift/curse doesn’t allow her to see the […]
