My Review I have very mixed opinions about this series as a whole, Wisdom being the fourth book.  The plot itself has great bones, with unexpected twists and turns.  Many of the subplots are just intriguing as the main story, which I think makes the story itself richer to read.  However, there are scenes here and there […]

My Review Flutter is the third book in the My Blood Approves series.  Once again, I like the plot of the series and I get drawn into it every time.  The story line is a strong one, with the sub plots as engaging as the main story.  There are lots of twists and turns to […]

My Review Fate is the second novel in the My Blood Approves series, and the story line continued to pull me in as much as the first one did.  I love the unexpected twists and turns and the action was just as well-paced as in the first.  While sometimes the story had me wanting the […]

My Review Vampire fiction is such an enormously popular genre right now and it can be hard to find a story that truly grabs you in a fresh and unique way.  There were definately some plot points that echoed some of that popular fiction, but the story that they were woven into kept them from being […]

My Review Noted to be Book #1.5 in anticipation of the upcoming release of One Hundred Candles in 2 weeks, Raising the Dead is the newest installment of the Past Midnight series.  The first novel introduced Charlotte Silver, a teen girl who just wants to be normal, not an easy feat when she is the […]

My Review Hush Money is the first novel in a new series, The Talent Chronicles.  It is set in a world people with supernatural abilities, known as “Talents”, are taken and forced into government prisons.  These prisons are vaguely veiled as state-run schools that are supposed to help teach the Talented to control their abilities.  Being an […]

My Review For most of us, delving into a book is an escape, a temporary break from the mundane things that make up our reality.  It can be a trip to another time, another place, another dimension, another reality.  But can it also be something more?  Can something as innocent as reading truly unleash an evil, […]

My Review The Gift is the second novel the young adult series, Witch & Wizard.  The cliffhanger from the first novel led neatly into the second novel, the ongoing adventures of Whit and Wisty Allgood in their changing world.  Freeland (the outlying areas populated by children who have managed to avoid being kidnapped, imprisoned, and brainwashed) […]
