My Review There is a bit of a time lapse with this sequel to Silence, beginning a few years after the last ended.  Oakley has definitely changed as a character, relearning herself now that her secrets are known and she is speaking once again.  This sequel is less young adult and more new adult now, as neither […]

My Review This book has gotten a lot of mixed reviews, but the subject matter is so different from a lot of contemporary YA fiction of the non-paranormal genre that I was intrigued.  Sometimes these intense subjects can be glossed  over or sanitized for the YA book, so I was interested to see how that […]

My Review This was an interesting book for me, and not so easy to review.  I read a lot of reviews before and after I read it and I seem to have a very different view of the main protagonists of Mallory and Luke, as well as several of the supporting characters. The story was […]

My Review Hidden is the first in a new series, the Dragonlands, and it is fantasy of epic proportions.  If you have read any of her Song of Eloh Saga series, you know the kinds of worlds that Megg creates.  She is genius at creating fantasy worlds and this latest word treat is no different.  It is a […]

My Review This is my first Jamie Magee book and I truly enjoyed it.  It is apparently a tie-in to the Insight series, which I am now going to have to check out! The characters in this story are very well-developed.  There were times when I was so engrossed that I forgot reality!  She creates such real […]

My Review Wow, just wow!  I wasn’t sure how this series was  going to go on, especially after the unexpected big moments of Chasing Nikki.  Chase has been through more in a few short years  than many go through in a lifetime.  It seemed  that, just as soon as his life really came together, it was […]

My Review My advice?  Make sure you have a block of time before you start this book!  Once I started it, there was no putting it down.  I love to be so swept away by a story that there is no other reality for me while I am there and this definitely happened here. I […]

My Review Amazing.  Hands down, one of the most powerful books I have read.  I went into it not really knowing what to expect.  It is written from the first-person POV, in Sophie’s voice, and it follows her journey from spoiled, rich girl to a young woman with value… to herself and to others. This […]

Forever My Lady

My Review Forever My Lady is such a unique take on contemporary romance, no doubt in part due to the fact that it is written by a man.  The story is told largely from the point of view of Dio and I found it truly refreshing to read a book of this genre from the […]

My Review An amazing story, as deeply emotional as the first two books in The Station series.  There are moments that become just as deeply personal for the reader as they are for the characters in the book.  This is a series that is, in a single word, exceptional. There is such love in the book… love […]
