First Grave on the Right by Darynda Jones

First Grave on the Right by Darynda Jones

I heard so much about how great this series was and knew I needed to read it. So when I had a chance to read First Grave on the Right for a read-along, I jumped on it. Now I’m totally hooked on the series! Great characters, interesting storyline, and lots of laughs – can’t go […]

Patient Zero by Jonathan Maberry

Patient Zero by Jonathan Maberry

  Oh, how I love Jonathan Maberry!  Not only because his books completely rock,  but also because he writes the only books my 15-year-old son begs me to buy.  We both love the Benny Imura series, so I thought I would let him try the Joe Ledger series to  read over the summer.  We started […]

Wake by Amanda Hocking

Wake by Amanda Hocking

As some of you may know, I’m a huge Hocking fan.  I first discovered her books when I bought my first Kindle almost two years ago.  I was hooked!  I devour every book of hers as soon as they are released.  Here’s the thing, though, I’ve never read a book with the whole mermaid/siren thing […]

Spark by Amy Kathleen Ryan

Spark by Amy Kathleen Ryan

Finally!  I was waiting for this book for over a year.  It was even one of my top 5 most anticipated books of 2012.  I read the first book, Glow, before it was released last year and fell in love with it.  So it felt like I tortured myself because I had to wait even […]

The Hunt by Andrew Fukuda

The Hunt by Andrew Fukuda

I don’t even know where to start… I was not expecting this.  Not even close. Okay, when I first started reading this book, all I kept thinking was “this is so weird” and “what the heck am I reading?” I’m totally down for weirdness and like some super weird stuff, so that’s probably why I […]

This Is Not A Test by Courtney Summers

This Is Not A Test by Courtney Summers

Wow… wow.  This was one of my most anticipated books of 2012, and it was so worth it.  I honestly had a hard time describing my feelings after reading This is Not a Test – hell, I still kind of do.  This book was such an intense, emotional read from the very beginning.  While I […]

Sadie Walker is Stranded by Madeleine Roux

Sadie Walker is Stranded by Madeleine Roux

This book was such a great surprise.  I will hang my head in shame and admit that I had never heard of this author until I received this book for review, but she is definitely on my radar now.  Sadie Walker is Stranded is the second book in the Zombie series. I haven’t read 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 […]

Switched by Amanda Hocking

Switched by Amanda Hocking

There is something so addicting about a Hocking book!  I first read the Trylle trilogy about a year ago, and devoured them.  So I was ecstatic when it was announced that the trilogy was going to be published by St. Martin’s Griffin.  When I received a copy with the new cover, I actually had to […]

Dead of Night by Jonathan Maberry

Dead of Night by Jonathan Maberry

Wow… I thought this would be a good book when I first heard about it, but it far exceeded my expectations.  Dead of Night was action packed, intense, emotional, and seriously effed up! When a prison doctor doesn’t feel that death is punishment enough for a notorious serial killer, he injects him with Lucifer 113, […]
