Awakening by Karice Bolton

Awakening by Karice Bolton

Here is another book I went into somewhat blind.  I wasn’t sure what exactly Awakening was about, so it was nice to really discover the story for myself.  Bolton takes an interesting turn with a popular genre, and I actually enjoyed that. Awakening wasn’t mind-blowing, but it was a nice, quick read. The story starts […]

Last Bastion of the Living by Rhiannon Frater

Last Bastion of the Living by Rhiannon Frater

The description of the book sounded badass, but admittedly, I knew there was the potential to go completely south with this type of story. But that wasn’t the case. I have to tell you how incredibly kick-ass this book is! The Last Bastion of the Living is set in the future, after the world succumbed […]

Wow… wow.  This was one of my most anticipated books of 2012, and it was so worth it.  I honestly had a hard time describing my feelings after reading This is Not a Test – hell, I still kind of do.  This book was such an intense, emotional read from the very beginning.  While I […]

M.I.A. in the Summertime

M.I.A. in the Summertime

Summertime and the livin’s easy… So in my monthly wrap-up post I mentioned that summer could be a bad thing for my reading and blogging.  I will be a little more M.I.A. this month, but I’ve already scheduled a few posts.  I’ll try to continue visiting blogs as often as I can, because I’ve gotta […]
