Book Review: Spray

I loved the pace of this novel. The different characters you encounter and the way the book is written really makes it fast-paced and interesting. I love the different takes on the game. I also really didn't see the overarching plot come out until halfway through the novel. I think that itself really pulled the novel together. Definitely an interesting novel. The multiple points of view in this novel really make it unique. You get to see into the eyes of some of the different players, why they're playing and what they hope to gain from it. It's also interesting […]

Book Review: The Kneebone B..

Book Review: The Kneebone Boy

The Hardscrabbles, Otto, Lucia (pronounced Lu-CHEE-a), Max, and their father, Casper, are a little different than other families in the small town of Little Tunks. You see, years earlier, Mrs. Hardscrabble disappeared. There one day and gone the next. And what happened to Tess Hardscrabble is a complete mystery. One that everyone is not quite sure that can be solved. But leave to three very inquisitive children to see if they can. The Kneebone Boy is a witty and enchanting novel. And the narration… wow, it is definitely one of a kind. The story itself is told through one of […]

Book Review: Wereling

Book Review: Wereling

How would you feel if your life was even more messed up than usual? That's how Trey feels when he is pulled out of the group home he was living in and thrown into a world full of vampires, werewolves, and demons. The story is filled with action, learning how to control the wolf inside him, and trying to find a place where he belongs. Trey seems like your typical troubled guy. He's not a hunk, but he's definitely not dorky and he's so normal – if only he weren't a werewolf. I can see him growing in this book […]

Book Review: Halo

Book Review: Halo

This book focuses on Bethany, the youngest angel sent down to Venus Cove to protect it against forces of darkness. Although she is an angel, Bethany starts to emphasize with humans so much, she start to act more and more like a human teenager – going as far as falling for a human boy. She focuses on their relationship until a new boy comes to her school – one that interests and disconcerts her. Only then is she reminded of why they were sent there in the first place. I have to say that it was really hard to see […]

Book Review: Perchance to D..

Book Review: Perchance to Dream

Sequel to Eyes Like Stars I have to be honest here, Perchance to Dream felt scattered to me at times. The setting was hard for me to picture. Otherwise, it was the usual rescue adventure with obstacles caused by mystical forces. The whole setting felt surreal and I couldn't seem to focus on what was going on and then suddenly they were moving on to something else. It was kind of a trip. Okay, why can't Ariel just be the bad guy? I feel like he should be, but he isn't – it's just how Bertie reacts to his "love" […]
