Crave by Melissa Darnell

Crave by Melissa Darnell

Umm…. okay….. I’m a little torn on this.  Crave has a really good premise – a half witch, half vampire teenage girl struggling with what she is becoming, while falling in love with the one boy she’s forbidden to be around.  There are things I like about the book, but it also seems to be […]

Seers by Heather Frost

Seers by Heather Frost

I’ve read a couple of books about guardian angels vs. demons, but I always enjoy when authors add their own twists and take on them, like Frost did with Seers. Oops, not angels, just Guardians – they hate when you call them that. Kate Bennet hasn’t been the same since her near death experience in […]

Moonlight Rises by Vincent Zandri

Moonlight Rises by Vincent Zandri

I received Moonlight Rises for review as part of a blog tour, but I wasn’t aware that it was the third book in a series.  Usually I will not read a series out of sequence, but I decided to give it a try.  Thankfully, not reading the first two books didn’t seem to affect this […]

The Juliet Spell by Douglas Rees

The Juliet Spell by Douglas Rees

What a cute book!  I had actually put The Juliet Spell off for awhile because I wasn’t sure that I’d like it all that much, but it was good.  It was a really quick and enjoyable read.  When Miranda (Miri) Hoberman, a sixteen-year-old girl from Guadalupe, California wants to be Juliet in a school play, […]

The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern

The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern

Sigh… I did not want this book to end!  The Night Circus was/is getting a lot of hype, and I admit, I was one of those who were dying to read it.  When UPS delivered the autographed book, I felt like I won the lottery – yes, I’m a dork.  But as I got ready […]

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 […]
