Daughter of Smoke & Bone

Daughter of Smoke & Bone
Posted 18 April 2017 by Kim in Book Review / 0 Comments

My Review I closed the book after the final page and wondered to myself… why did I wait so long to read this book?  The story, the characters, the writing… all of them were so enchanting and engrossing.  Everything about this book was magical! Set in the city of Prague, Karou lives alone in a […]

Don’t Kiss the Messenger

Don’t Kiss the Messenger
Posted 10 April 2017 by Kim in Book Review / 0 Comments

My Review I loved everything about Don’t Kiss the Messenger!  For me, this story was very much driven by the varied cast of characters.  I loved that they weren’t cast as ideals, but with the flaws and hangups that we all can relate to. CeCe Edmonds was in a devasting crash that left her scarred in […]

My Review This book… there are no words for how much Atwood’s words affected me.  The book was originally published when I was about 16, but I didn’t read it.  In some ways, I regret that because I think it would have been interesting to compare the two experiences, 30 years apart.  Kim at 16 […]

My Review To say that Jaybird was an emotional read would be an understatement!  There were parts of it that just made me want to jump into my Kindle and slap the sense into some of the characters.  Other parts reduced me to ugly tears.  And there were some parts that had me laughing out loud […]

Ten Thousand Skies Above You

Ten Thousand Skies Above You
Posted 29 March 2017 by Kim in Book Review / 0 Comments

My Review I absolutely loved the first novel in this series, A Thousand Pieces of You, and this book was just as good.  The story is woven throughout the multiverse as Marguerite fights to save both Paul and Theo.  And like the first book, this one makes you think about life, choices, and their unforeseen ramifications. […]

The Bone Witch

The Bone Witch

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 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 […]

Magic Dreams

Magic Dreams

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. […]

The Sun Is Also a Star

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. […]

Magic Bleeds

Magic Bleeds

My Review I think Magic Bleeds, the fourth novel in the Kate Daniels series, is my favorite.  I loved everything about this book.  The story, the characters, the mythology, the action.  All of it combined to make a novel that was hard to put down! Kate Daniels is probably my favorite female protagonist.  She is fierce […]
