The Country of Ice Cream Star

The Country of Ice Cream Star

My Review The Country of Ice Cream Star came to me almost by accident.  The library on post hosted an event around Valentine’s Day called Blind Date with a Book.  I chose one based on nothing more than a genre and a vague blurb.  And it was unlike anything I’ve ever read. It is a […]

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. […]

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 […]

Magic Mourns

Magic Mourns

My Review Magic Mourns is a companion novella in the Kate Daniels series.  This one tells the story of Andrea Nash, Kate’s best friend and a Knight of the Order. Although Kate is in the book, this story is almost exclusively about Andrea.  While it is possible to enjoy the series without reading this, I personally […]

Magic Strikes

Magic Strikes

My Review This series just gets better and better!  Magic Strikes is the third book in the Kate Daniels series and I loved it just as much as the others. In this one, Kate has been drafted to work in the Order as a sort of liaison between the Pack and the Order.  She is […]

Magic Burns

Magic Burns

My Review Magic Burns is the second book in the Kate Daniels series and I loved it just about as much as I did the first.  Magic comes and goes unpredictably in the world of Kate Daniels, but every seven years there is a magic flare.  During those times, the magic runs wild and brings […]

Magic Bites

Magic Bites

My Review I don’t read a lot of urban fantasy, but I loved Magic Bites!  The action is fantastic and it features a badass heroine.  Mix that with a ton of paranormal lore and mythology, and it is a truly engrossing read. The world of Kate Daniels is a post-apocalyptic one, but different from most in […]

Extras

Extras

My Review Extras is the unexpected final book in the Uglies series, following what was originally touted as a trilogy.  The series is set in a dystopian future in which the ideas of beauty and conformity are the central ideals of the society.  This book takes place a few years after Tally’s story ended and centers on Aya […]

Specials

My Review I have such mixed emotions about this book.  It was originally supposed to be the final book in a trilogy, although there is now a fourth book in which Tally appears as a non-central character.  So, even though this ended up not being the final book, it is really the final book in […]

Pretties

Pretties

My Review I truly love this series!  The world is a dystopian society based on the ideals of beauty.  It is a society that redefined beauty as a conforming concept, a society in which everyone’s entire worth is based on their beauty.  The fact that beauty is a manufactured ideal, rather than natural, is of […]
