Red, White and Royal Blue Book Review

This book has become without a doubt my new favorite book of all time. It has such a beautiful message at its core and being someone who lives in Austin Texas like where Alex is from it adds another layer to it. It feels like what should have happened in America back in 2016, and it kinda breaks your heart in that way. Alex and Henry and amazing, their dynamic, their chemistry is unmatched to any other that I have ever seen or experienced. This book is so incredibly real, important and downright hilarious. I laughed, cried, scream, I felt […]

Book Review: Charm & Strange

This whole review is sort of a spoiler.. sorry… I can’t review this book without addressing what it is about. I’m not revealing everything but I pretty much debunk what this book looks hidden to be in the next paragraph.  Charm & Strange is a trainwreck you cannot look away from. To quote my husband “you know how to pick em”. Seriously, this book is messed up, prepare yourself! It’s been a while since I read something on these topics: suicide, incest, rape, psychological problems, and more. So if you don’t want to read any of those, don’t. This isn’t […]

Book Review: Reckoning

Book Review: Reckoning

Book Review: Midnight City

Book Review: Midnight City

As soon as I saw post-apocalyptic and aliens together in the same sentence, I wanted to know more. Midnight City is unlike like anything I have come across before. Part alien invasion. Part post-apocalyptic. Each element blending together to create a read that is completely fresh and original. Much of Midnight City rested on Mitchell's world creating skills. Before I really got into the read, I began wondering about this world's possibilities. I knew if done right, Midnight City could be an amazing read. But one wrong turn, could also as easily transform Midnight City into a hot mess. After […]

Book Review: Wake

Book Review: Wake

The addition of mermaid / siren books to the young adult genre seems to gaining momentum. With each new offering, I find myself falling in love with these creatures all over again. But this love affair has not always been an easy one. Some mermaid / siren books have been done extremely well. While others were lacking that special spark. Upon discovering Amanda Hocking's Wake, I was instantly on guard. It's true that I adore what she did for trolls, but deep down, I questioned if she could do it again for another mythical creature.   Wake is told through […]

Book Review: This Is Not a ..

Book Review: This Is Not a Test

Zombie books are a little bit of a risk for me. I will admit, I am a chicken. No scary books for me before bed. But despite my worries, This Is Not a Test sounded promising enough that I just had to give it a try… during daylight hours.   While most zombie theme book focus on characters who will do whatever it takes to survive, Sloane, our MC, goes in the opposite direction. Having lost all family and hope, Sloane just waits for the end. Life for her holds no meaning, and with no meaning, no willpower. Despite this making Sloane […]

Book Review: Spark

Book Review: Spark

Reviews: Glow   * Review and Summary may contain spoilers from previous books of the series. Read at your own risk *   Glow, the first book in the Sky Chasers series, left me a little puzzled. Loved Ryan's world building and details. But was slightly put off by the overt religious overtones that were questionable, at best, in their inclusion. This left me a bit perplexed about my early feeling for Spark. It is hard to start fresh with a sequel. Having those old torn feelings getting in the way. But I promised myself that I would give this book a real […]

Book Review: Fated

Book Review: Fated

I have had hot and cold experiences with Alyson Noel's books in the past. Some I really, really liked. Some I could have just skipped over. The premise of Fated was enough to get me interested, but time would only tell what the final outcome of my feelings would be.   Fated starts with a lot of backstory. And I mean A LOT. While I am a huge fan of backstory, getting to really know my characters, Fated toes the line of enough information and too much information precariously.   Instead of interweaving details as the book progressed, readers are […]
