My Review This novella is the start to the brand-new Madly series, a mermaid series that blends threads of traditional lore with new mythology.  I love mermaid-themed stories and this one was really fun.  At 53 pages, it is a short read,, but it is a great introduction to the world of Madly! Fairy tales are […]

My Review Liberty Bound is the sequel to  Prophecy Girl and was just as engaging as the first!  The world that the author created in the first book somehow becomes even more mysterious in the second.  Werewolves, seasonals, prepubescent puppetmasters, protectors, and psychotic mothers… the characters are wide and varied!  The world is our own, but […]

The Goddess Hunt

The Goddess Hunt
Posted 22 April 2014 by Kim in Book Review / 0 Comments

My Review The Goddess Hunt tells the story of Kate and James during her time away from the Underworld.  It was supposed to be a fun-filled trip to Greece, right up to the point that Kate finds herself in the middle of a feud between immortals.  And then the action begins… This book was action-packed and […]

The Goddess Test

The Goddess Test

My Review I have always loved Greek mythology and I love retellings and reimaginings of fairy tales and legends.  I got both in The Goddess Test, which makes me a very happy reader! The characters in this story were wonderful!  I love that Kate is created to be strong and independent, her own person.  She has […]

If I Tell

If I Tell

My Review I have fallen in love with Janet Gurtler’s writing.  The stories that she creates are always deeply emotional and intense with beautifully created characters.  They are vulnerable and imperfect and entirely recognizable as real people.  I also love that the author doesn’t shy away from tough subjects.  She doesn’t gloss over them or […]

My Review I am a sucker for all things Celtic and faery, so I was excited to find this book.  There is no denying the fact that the cover is gorgeous and it drew me right to it.  But it was the words inside that kept me reading! Allison and Ethan… I loved the tension […]

My Not So Super Sweet Life

My Not So Super Sweet Life
Posted 17 April 2014 by Kim in Book Review / 2 Comments

My Review My Not So Super Sweet Life is very different from the first two books in the series, but just as wonderful to read!  The first book, My Super Sweet Sixteenth Century, featured Cat as the narrator and center of the story.  The second, A Tale of Two Centuries, was told by Alessandra as she went […]

Second Star

Second Star

My Review Having recently read the classic Peter Pan, I was intrigued by the idea of a retelling of that story.  I am a sucker for fairy tale retellings and this is the first one I have come across that is based on that story. Second Star is tells a very different story than that of […]

A Tale of Two Centuries

A Tale of  Two Centuries
Posted 15 April 2014 by Kim in Book Review / 0 Comments

My Review As much as I enjoyed the first book in this series, My Super Sweet Sixteenth Century, I think I loved this one even more!  This installment focused in Alessandra, Cat’s “cousin”  from 16th century Florence, Italy.  Less dreams of a life of less restriction and more freedom, something that is hard to come by […]
