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 […]

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 […]

Legacy by Cayla Kluver

Legacy by Cayla Kluver

I had to take a couple days after finishing Legacy to really determine how I felt about it.  It wasn’t a matter of whether I liked it or not, it was a matter of just how much I liked it.  The story went fast, regardless of it being a 500 page book, and I was […]
