Atlantia
Posted 29 March 2017 by Kim in Book Review / 0 Comments

My Review Atlantia is a standalone novel by the author of the Matched series, which I loved.  This book, however, left me with mixed feelings.  The premise was amazing, but I just felt disconnected and I can’t quite figure out why. The novel takes place in a dystopian world split between the Above and the Below, the […]

My Review I grew up in Amish country in Northern New York, an area of both strict ordnungs more liberal Mennonites, so the topic of this book intrigued me the moment I read the back.  The story is mainly set in Pinecraft, a community in Florida that consists of both Amish and Mennonite residents.  “Snowbirds” are […]

My Review Defensive Zone is the 10th full-length novel in the Portland Storm series, a series that has created an immense fan base of romance lovers and hockey fans! This book focuses on Cody “Harry” Williams, a defenseman for the Portland Storm, and Dani Weber, the impetuous daughter of one of the coaches.  Dani has harbored a […]

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 […]

My Review The Country of Ice Cream Star came to me almost by accident.  The library on post hosted an event around Valentine’s Day called Blind Date with a Book.  I chose one based on nothing more than a genre and a vague blurb.  And it was unlike anything I’ve ever read. It is a […]

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 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 This is the novella I’ve been wanting!  The story of Dali and Jim.  It is something that was teased in one of the earlier novels, but I’ve been wanting this story.  It is the romance of two unlikely people and I loved it. I have loved Dali from the moment we met her. […]

Seriously Shifted

Seriously Shifted

My Review I really love the premise of this series!  In the world of Seriously Shifted, witches are not good.  Not all of them are evil, but there is a defined since of superiority that allows them to live by rules of their own.  But Camellia is determined to change that.  Her mother is on the […]

The Sun Is Also a Star

My Review The Sun is Also a Star is the second novel by Nicola Yoon and I loved it every bit as much as the first.  There was just something about this book that got to me.  And, in retrospect, this is surprising, because a big part of it centers around something I usually hate. […]
