Book View: The House of Hades

Short & Sweet: After the horrible cliffhanger of the last book, The House of Hades quickly made it to the top of my reading list once it was released. I don't want to reveal too much, but this book finds Percy and Annabeth in Hades, facing trials so dangerous that I was biting my nails throughout this book. Also, I felt like Nico's character was hashed out more in this book and finally his brooding attitude explained. Leo is a favorite of mine and I loved seeing him finally get a lot more plot time and even a romantic interest. […]

Book Review: False Sight

Book Review: False Sight

Last year, one of my break away hit reads was False Memory, the first book of this series. Dan Krokos completely hit it out of the park.. once I was able to get into the read that is. With False Sight, I was ready to get back into the action and see what was next in store for our characters. Now I don’t know if it is Dan Krokos’ writing style, the fact that it has been about a year since False Memory, or something completely different, but like False Memory, there was a bit of an issue getting into False […]

Book Review: Gates of Paradise

Reviews: The Van Allen Legacy / Misguided Angel / Lost in Time It is no secret that I have adored this series since the very beginning. Sure, it has had its ups and downs, but overall, it is a series that I, to this day, will recommend for even those that are sick of vampire tales. Why? Because it is so different then about 99% of other vampire books out there. Gates of Paradise, the final installment of the Blue Bloods series, was filled with excitement, sadness, and a whole lot of WTFery. I am not big on final book spoilers, but this […]

Book Review: False Memory

Book Review: False Memory

A couple of weeks ago, I picked up False Memory on whim. Not sure if it is because I did not know what I was getting into or something about the opening, but almost immediately, I noticed that I was not connecting with the read. Instead of trying to push through, I decided to put False Memory back on the shelf for (hopefully) another day. Flash forward a few weeks. Cleaning out my shelves, I again come face to face with False Memory. But instead of pushing it aside, I decide to give it one last chance. I am very […]

Book Review: Uncommon Crimi..

Book Review: Uncommon Criminals

I absolutely loved Heist Society on audio, so I figured I had this physical book lying around for a while, maybe it was time to get the audio from the library to inspire me to read.   Kat is such an interesting character, being one of the few girls in this business mainly ruled by men. So when she meets another female con artist, who cons her, she can't help but go after her to prove who is the better thief. And to hopefully keep herself and her friends from becoming cursed. This woman has been around for a long […]

Book Review: Code Name Veri..

Book Review: Code Name Verity

I had heard some buzz about this book and I was in the mood for a change in reading. Nothing like a solid historical fiction to wash out the taste of bad YA para-romance, so I dug right in.   I felt pulled into the story from the start. The beginning of this book really unsettles the reader. Verity is a secret agent and captured and in the process of writing her confession as she cannot stand any more torture. Instead of outright revealing her mission, she begins her tale from her pilot's point of view. Maddie happens to be […]

Book Review: From What I Re..

Book Review: From What I Remember

I wasn't quite sure about this one going into it. Definitely not my usual realistic fiction read, but I loved Stacy & Valerie's writing in Karma Bites so I thought I'd give this one a shot.   The first couple of pages shocked me! My eyes popped and I said to myself "What the heck did this girl do last night?!" in horror. Then as the story starts from the different point of views I really became involved in these characters and this story that was hilariously coincidental. Poor smart Kylie just has to do this last assignment, even when […]

The Ghost and the Goth / Queen of the Dead   * Review and Summary may contain spoilers from previous books of the series. Read at your own risk *   Short and Sweet: Body and Soul is (sadly) the final installment of the The Ghost and the Goth series. At this point, Alona and Will have overcome quite a few things. But Alona, now in the body of Will's friend Lily, may have bitten off more than she could chew. The previous installment brought readers the addition of the Order, a group of people with similar ghost talking abilities. In Body […]
