Seriously Shifted

Seriously Shifted

My Review I really love the premise of this series!  In the world of Seriously Shifted, witches are not good.  Not all of them are evil, but there is a defined since of superiority that allows them to live by rules of their own.  But Camellia is determined to change that.  Her mother is on the […]

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. […]

Seriously Wicked

Seriously Wicked

My Review I ran across Seriously Wicked on the e-library site for my local Army library and fell in love with the cover.  But they didn’t own the book.  I recommended it, and the next in the series,  for purchase and, much to my delight, the library purchased both of them. It is a quirky, quirky novel, […]

A Thousand Pieces of You

A Thousand Pieces of You

My Review You remember how your parents always told you not to judge a book by it’s cover?  I didn’t listen and I am glad I didn’t.  I realize I am late to the game in reading this, but just reading the blurb told me that I wanted to wait until all three books were […]

The Diabolic

The Diabolic

My Review Diabolic is the first in a new series of the same name by author S.J. Kincaid.  The book is science fiction in every sense of the world.  It takes place in the distant future that in no way resembles are own.  The power structure is an Empire and it is based on a sun […]

Just Juliet

Just Juliet

My Review Just Juliet is one of those novels that just left me with mixed feelings.  It is a story that has promise and a cast of diverse and what could be interesting characters.  There were moments when I felt like the story was rich and engaging, and other moments that felt flat to me. […]

Love and First Sight

Love and First Sight

My Review Love and First Sight is the first I’ve read by author Josh Sundquist.  I read it in less than a day because I just couldn’t put it down.  It is a gripping story with fabulous characters and an even ore fabulous story. So much of YA fiction focuses on girls so I was […]

Dive

Dive

My Review Dive is a truly poignant book about love and loss, friendship and family.  The story revolves around Virginia, a 15yo girl who is going through one of the worst times of her life.  And because personal tragedy is never enough, just about everything around her seems to be rising against her. Isn’t that […]
