My Review I am an unabashed fan of Emma Mills and I can’t tell you how sad I am to see this series end!  But I also can wait to see what she comes out with next.  The characters in these books have been through so much and the reader feels like they have been […]

My Review I am the Messenger is one of the more bizarre books I have ever read.  It is one of those books that caused me to question myself continually about why I was reading it, yet, at the same time, I couldn’t put it down.  Even now, having finished it, I am not sure […]

My Review This installment of Happenstance deals with Erin and Weston’s last months in high school and the beginning of college. After everything she has been through, one would hope that things would finally go right for her.  But this is not the case.  She is still being bullyied, led by the unrequited crush of one of […]

My Review The second Happenstance novella starts soon after the first one begins.  Erin’s life has turned upside down and this installment focuses on her new life and relationships wirh her parents. Suddenly she is surrounded by love and affection, something she has never known before.  At times, it felt a little forced and that acceptance came […]

My Review Happenstance is a story of love, of betrayal, of mean girls, of secrets, and of finding your place in the world. Erin Easter has spent her life on the outside of the social scene, more frequently the target of neverending bullying.  She is one of three Erin’s in her small senior class, the other two […]

My Review I love anything and everything Emma Mills writes and this latest book is NO EXCEPTION!  She creates believable worlds out of the unbelievable.  She creates characters that are rich and varied and always remind you of someone you know in your own life.  The story takes you in twists and turns and you […]

My Review Chrysoprase is the second novel in the Chalcedony Chronicles, a time travel saga that blends created time travel mythology with ancient history.  This book was definitely my favorite of the two written thus far. The mythology is much more developed in this book with much more significance given to it.  There are a lot of twists […]

My Review Carnelian is the first in the new Chalcedony Chronicles, a new adult series that promises a bit of a sci-fi flavor in the form of time travel.  I have mixed opinions about this book, mostly about the level of emphasis paid to different aspects of the plot. Mari is a college freshman, hours away […]

My Review This series is such a great read!  The characters are deep and realistic, with no glossing over the less savory parts of life.  I loved Chad in the first book in the series, The Harder I Fall, and I loved him even more in The Deeper We Get. Chad is a fantastic character!  He is […]

My Review The Harder I Fall is an incredibly emotional read.  There were so many moments when I just wanted to reach inside my Kindle and hug Becca and make things right for her and her brother.  I empathized and related to so many aspects of this story and it made the entire book that […]
