My Review The first in the young adult paranormal Fallen series, Fallen is a contemporary retelling of the age-old, epic battle between good and evil.  The premise of the plot was creative and unique, set around a reform school with the unlikeliest of heroes and villians.  Sorting out the evil from the good was rarely possible […]

My Review Awakened is the 8th novel in the House of Night series.  As the character of Zoey Redbird was the clear main character throughout most of the series, I enjoyed seeing another take the forefront in this novel.  The plot was more centered around Stevie Rae, Zoey’s best friend and a new High Priestess to […]

Posted 4 January 2011 by Kim in Book Review / 1 Comment

My Review The Debutante’s Dilemma is a historical romance set in 1800’s London, in the height of the Season.  It is a time of strict moral codes of behavior and the Cecilia Hastings is far more passionate than her prim and proper fellow debutantes.  Cecilia was a likeable character, and as relatable as a character from […]

My Review This is the second novella in the Mirus series by Kait Nolan, and equally as great as the first.  I have been looking forward to this story since the moment I finished the last.  One of things I love most about this writer is her ability to fully flesh out and conclude a full […]

My Review The second in the Billy Blessing series, The Midnight Show Murders was most definately my favorite.  Al’s signature humor was obvious throughout the novel, blending wittiness and mystery well.  I love the eclecticness of the characters in the novels and how they fit into the storyline without that formula feel to the mystery.  […]

My Review I picked this book up because I love Al Roker, and find him hysterical on Today, so I was interested to see how his humor would show itself in fiction.  Full of pop culture references, including a few self-deprecating references to Roker himself, there was a lot of unexpected humor for a murder […]

My Review Wither is set in the future, in a world that somehow seems both futuristic and primitive at the same time.  War has literally changed the world as we, the reader, know it.  Modern science and technology have changed humanity, illusions and holograms having replaced reality and the humanity of relationships.  The desperation that society […]

Three novellas, so three reviews! My Review While I enjoyed this novella, I definately think it would have made a better full-length novel.  It was almost too short to fully develop the nature of some of the characters, most particularly Margaret.  I was left wanting to know more about her, her history, what made her […]

Because this book contains stories by two different authors, both will be reviewed separately. My Review In A Christmas Kiss, Delilah Wentworth never expected that an unfortunate fang-chipping accident would completely change her life.  On the way to a mandatory meeting of her conclave, she finds herself lost and alone in Oklahoma,… until she meets Brett, […]

Because this volume contains two stories by two different authors, both will be reviewed separately. My Review In Christmas Cravings, when Grayson Stone returns to rural Wyoming for his annual Christmas visit, he discovers that the home he built with his own hands over a century ago has a new owner.  Not knowing who or […]
