Dearly, Departed by Lia Habel

Dearly, Departed by Lia Habel

Zombies?  Check.  Dystopian?  Check.  Victoriana?  Check.   All around awesomeness?  Double check!  Habel developed an amazing story.  Dearly, Departed was so different from other zombie books that I’ve read, and I’ve read quite a few.  The year is 2195, and the world has experienced drastic changes due to icy harsh winters, catastrophic storms, a second America […]

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 […]

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, […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Spellbound by Cara Lynn Shultz

Spellbound by Cara Lynn Shultz

Spellbound was an excitingly sweet and witty read. Poor sixteen-year-old Emma Conner had it rough, losing everyone she loved and left to endure the wrath of her step-dads drunken stupors. That is, until she goes to live with her posh great-aunt in New York and enrolls in one of city’s most elite private schools. I […]

Where Demons Fear to Tread by Stephanie Chong

Chong has delivered a beautiful story about love and redemption. Serena, a newly minted fledgling angel has never know true love, that is, until she meets Archdemon Julian Ascher. Together, they must discover the divine power of love in order to save each other. I haven’t read a story like this in awhile, and I […]
