Drink, Slay, Love by Sarah Beth Durst

Drink, Slay, Love by Sarah Beth Durst

Oh my gosh…. where to start!  I haven’t read a book with a unicorn in it since 7th grade, so I wasn’t sure how well this book was going to play out.  Combining vampires with unicorns sounds kind of cheesy to me, to be honest.  But oh, was I ever wrong!  And I’m glad I […]

Galaxy Girls by Edie Ramer

Galaxy Girls by Edie Ramer

Well now, this book was a fun surprise. I enjoy books with aliens and other worlds, but I don’t think that I personally have read very many that involved romance and sex. Not that I’m complaining. Aliens need love too! When I first looked at the table of contents and saw there were sixty-three chapters, […]

Bloody Little Secrets by Karly Kirkpatrick

Bloody Little Secrets by Karly Kirkpatrick

Bloody Little Secrets seriously had me from the very beginning to the very last page.  It made me mad that I couldn’t just sit and read the entire book without interruptions.  With a first chapter like the one this book had, I knew it was going to be good!  Vicky, a seventeen-year-old senior in high […]

The Forgotten Locket by Lisa Mangum

The Forgotten Locket by Lisa Mangum

The Forgotten Locket is the final book in The Hourglass Trilogy.  Instead of having to wait a year between each book, I was able to read all three in the span of three months, so my memory of the books were still fresh.  After reading The Spiral Staircase (book two), I was hoping the Author […]

I Loved You First by Reena Jacobs

I Loved You First by Reena Jacobs

I Loved You First was a quick and enjoyable book – I really liked it.  Alex and Seth are in college and have been bff’s since elementary school.  At some point in their relationship Alex fell in love with Seth.  Unfortunately for Alex, Seth is gay. I have to say, I love the name Alex […]

Beauty Queens by Libba Bray

Beauty Queens by Libba Bray

Oh boy, where to start…  And I mean that in a good way.  I’m glad I already knew going into it that this book was a little different.  It took me a couple chapters to adjust, but once I did, I thoroughly enjoyed it.  Beauty Queens was the first book by Libba Bray that I’ve […]

Glow by Amy Kathleen Ryan

Glow by Amy Kathleen Ryan

Here’s the thing, the books that I absolutely LOVE the most tend to be the hardest for me to write about or discuss.  Glow is no exception to this, but I’ll do my best.  And I’m just going to admit it – this is now a favorite of mine. First of all, I hate comparing […]

Airel by Aaron Patterson & Chris White

Airel by Aaron Patterson & Chris White

I  received an e-book copy of Airel from Aaron Patterson as part of a giveaway.  Exciting!  The book is about a seventeen-year-old girl who lives a comfortable life, has a best friend who is like a sister, and feels no need to fall in love anytime soon.  But then, everything changes.  Airel starts feeling sick […]

The Golden Spiral by Lisa Mangum

The Golden Spiral by Lisa Mangum

The Golden Spiral picks up not too long after The Hourglass Door left off.  Dante is stuck somewhere in the time machine… the time machine that was destroyed.  So now all Abby has to do is build a brand new time machine in order to get him out.  If only it were so simple.  Unfortunately, […]
