Blue Sky Days by Marie Landry

Blue Sky Days by Marie Landry

What a beautiful, heartfelt story.  I’m not one to be openly mushy, so it’s hard for me to explain how touching Blue Sky Days was.  I loved how personal it felt, as if Emma were a friend telling me about what happened during that year of her life – her journey of self-discovery and finding […]

Cinder by Marissa Meyer

Cinder by Marissa Meyer

I knew I was going to love this book.  I just knew it.  I have always loved Cinderella and all the different adaptations of it, so when I read that this version is futuristic and the Cinderella character is a cyborg, I literally shrieked with excitement.  Cinder did not disappoint me. Cindertakes place in the […]

*This contains spoilers, because there is something I have to mention* It’s been a couple of weeks since I finished Touch of Power, and usually don’t even post anything about books that I don’t care for, but I have to for this one.  There were some issues I can’t be quiet about. This was the […]

Tempest by Julie Cross

Tempest by Julie Cross

Love. Time travel!  Love it!  I enjoy the complexity of it, and that you can basically make up your own rules for it.  However, I’m so picky about the story making sense, and making sure there are no inconsistencies.  The author did a pretty good job at making everything mesh, and took an interesting route […]

Unraveling Isobel by Eileen Cook

Unraveling Isobel by Eileen Cook

Loved this book! It’s funny, cute, and creepy; how could this not be a fun book? Unraveling Isobel was one of those books that I almost didn’t read, but changed my mind at the last minute.  Then it ended up keeping me awake until 1:30am doing the must-read-just-one-more-chapter thing. Poor Isobel had to leave her […]

The Demon Lover by Juliet Dark

The Demon Lover by Juliet Dark

Confession time!  For some unknown reason, when I started reading The Demon Lover, I thought it was more of a young adult book.  Jokes on me!  While I read the very beginning, I kept thinking to myself how there was no way I’d feel comfortable giving the book to a 15 or 16-year-old (even though […]
