Book Review: The Demon Catchers of Milan

At first glance, The Demon Catchers of Milan seemed to have it all. A beautiful city for its setting. A paranormal element. Some family issues to work through. Boy, this book seemed to have a lot of promises to uphold. But did it deliver? Eh, that is a hard question to answer. The premise of The Demon Catchers of Milan is what initially drew me in. I forgot all about the setting. Any external family issues. Focusing only on why I picked up this read in the first place: demon catching. In this regard, The Demon Catchers of Milan almost completely fails to deliver. Our protagonist, Mia, has […]

Book Review: Shadows

Book Review: Shadows

Reviews: Ashes   * Review and Summary may contain spoilers from previous books of the series. Read at your own risk *   Last year, one of my break away hit reads was Ashes, the first book of this series. Bick mixed things up a bit by combining a post-apocalyptic read with creatures that could easily be cousins to zombies. I fell head over heels for that book, and have been waiting patiently for the day I could get my grubby little hands on its sequel.   I don't know if it was because it has been about year since I […]

Book View: Kill Me Softly

Book View: Kill Me Softly

Short and Sweet: When reflecting on Kill Me Softly, the first word that pops into my head is… odd. There is something, initially, familiar about this book. Like pieces of a puzzle that you have seen before, but are not exactly sure how they are going to fit this time around. Kill Me Softly  has plenty of fairy tale qualities to it, but nothing came to together as I anticipated. This is not a happily ever after type read. It is beautifully tragic with secrets lying around every corner. Final Verdict: Kill Me Softly was a book that took time for me to warm up […]

Book View: Tris and Izzy

Book View: Tris and Izzy

Short and Sweet:  Before I read Tris and Izzy, I had seen quite a few mixed reactions to this book. Some positive. Some not so much. Having had watched Tristan and Isolde a few days previously, I was in the mood to see what Harrison had up her sleeve with her retelling. That was probably a mistake.   Tristan and Isolde (the one with James Franco) is one of my favorite movies. Tris and Izzy came no where close to what I thought it would be. Honestly, I am hard pressed to see how this is even a retelling. It […]

Double Monster Review: Ever..

Double Monster Review: Every Other Day

I love Jennifer Lynn Barnes other novels, so when I saw this one, I was intrigued. I knew it was some form of paranormal and it looked pretty awesome, so I jumped right in.   This book just throws you right into the fray from the beginning. Kali is just your average girl, but only every other day. She's a hunter the other part of the time, taking down hellhounds and other baddies that feed on humans or look to harm them. So when she sees a girl with a sign that she's been infected with a life-sucking parasite, she […]

Book Review: Ashes

Book Review: Ashes

With a creepy cover and the promise of something a little different, Ashes was a book that needed some investigation.   Ashes is a book that you will want to devote some time to. This is not a book that you can start on a weekend and maybe finish by Monday. No! Once you get into it, you will not be able to stop. For me, I started it on a whim one Thursday evening. Hoping to just find a book to suck me in. The next thing I know, it is 5 a.m. Friday morning. Yup, I stayed up […]

Book View: Hourglass

Book View: Hourglass

Short and Sweet: Hourglass blew me away. It was completely different than the usual YA fare that I come across. And if it were for that alone, Hourglass would be a definite recommend. However, McEntire gave me more than just something unique. The characters were fantastic. Emerson (kinda on the fence with the name) was exactly what I love in a MC. Feisty. An individual. She lives by the beat of her own drum. As for the romance, even this, was not exactly form. McEntire does not conform to what a YA romance should be. Instead, she makes it her […]

Book Review: The Rise of Re..

Book Review: The Rise of Renegade X

I had heard awesome things about this book last year and I never got around to reading it. I won a copy a while back and was glad to finally have time to pick it up. I knew it was about heroes and villians when starting it and found it engaging me from the first page. I could see this book being turned into a movie in my head. I loved the dynamics between Damien and his mother. A mad scientist who tries to love her son, even though he isn't quite fully a supervillian like her. It's funny to […]
