About a Girl
Posted 13 July 2015 by Kim in Book Review / 0 Comments

My Review About a Girl is the third book in Sarah McCarry’s Metamorphoses series, telling of a third generation.  The first book, All Our Pretty Songs, tells the stories of Aurora and her nameless best friend.  The second book, Dirty Wings, tells the stories of Cassie and Maia, the mother sof Aurora and her friend.  This book tells the […]

My Review I think I enjoyed this book even more than the first!  I am not usually into the whole alpha male concept, but the blend of the badass, hypermasculine men and the unexpected soft side really works.  Nowhere else but in a Community novel will you find such gorgeous specimens of man beasts who are […]

My Review The first book in this series, All Our Pretty Songs, was a book that appealed to me for its uniqueness.  It was a weird and often disturbing read and those flavors extended to this book, a prequel of  sorts.  It answered so many questions, even questions that I didn’t even always  know that I […]

All Our Pretty Songs

My Review All Our Pretty Songs is a truly unusual book.  It is one of those rare reads that I am finding difficult to process, unsure of how I feel about it.  It is a dark and disturbing read in so many ways, something I generally appreciate as it is a more realistic look at […]

My Review The Kiss of Deception is the first book in a new trilogy by Mary E. Pearson.  This is my first read by this author and I am a fan!  The story line is exciting and intriguing and the characters are fantastic. Princess Lia is what royalty should be all about.  She is strong-willed […]

My Review Let me just start off by saying that I am a huge Megg Jensen fan.  I have read everything she has written and loved every bit of it.  This series is more adult in nature than most of the others and it is MUCH darker.  I love every single moment of it! Hunted […]

My Review Hands down, this is my favorite Madly book so far!   There was so much to this one and I couldn’t put it down. Like everything I have read by this author, the writing just grabs me!  Everything she does is beautifully written and this is no exception.  There is so much emotion, regardless […]

My Review Madly & Wolfhardt is the second installment in the new Madly series, the first full-length novel.  Mermaids and werewolves, traditional lore mixed with new mythology… fantabulous! I loved the first novella, but the story really begins in this book.  I love, love, LOVE old lore remixed into something new.  We have a bit of Red Riding […]

The Goddess Inheritance

The Goddess Inheritance

My Review I have really enjoyed this series and I am sad that it has ended, but The Goddess Inheritance is a lovely ending!  I think this one was the most action-packed yet. Kate is faced with some terrible choices this time, and it made her an even stronger character.  I had started to have some […]

Goddess Legacy

Goddess Legacy

My Review Goddess Legacy is a collection of five short stories, all about various gods and goddess in the world of Goddess Test. The first story, The Goddess Queen, tells the story of Calliope/Hera from her own viewpoint.  For reasons I can’t explain without spoilers, Calliope was not one of my favorite characters throughout the rest of the […]
