Book Review: ‘Tides of Winter’ by R.T. Lowe

At this point, it’s no secret that I’m totally in love with R.T. Lowe’s ‘The Felix Chronicles’ series, and his newest novel, Tides of Winter, just reaffirms that dedication. There are some novels that it’s just really, really hard to explain what makes them great. Tides of Winter is one of those. And at the risk of sounding repetitive, what I loved about this novel is a continuation of what I loved about Freshman and […]

Book Review: ‘Starr Fa..

Book Review: ‘Starr Fall’ by Kim Briggs

Starr Fall by Kim Briggs is the kind of novel that I’m not sure how to feel about. The series as a whole has a massive amount of potential, especially in the young adult genre, but as an opening novel Starr Fall has some issues to work through. First, the positive; Starr Fall is an interesting concept. From the cover design and novel title, you’d think Briggs’ debut novel would be about aliens, but in […]

Book Review: ‘My Life ..

Book Review: ‘My Life with the Walter Boys’ by Ali Novak

Ali Novak’s My Life with the Walter Boys is the kind of read that I’m pretty sure could have been a fanfic at one point in time, under the right circumstances, and that fact leaves me a little conflicted. Did I hate this book? Not at all! But are there some definite flaws within the story? You betcha. So here’s the deal: Jackie loses her entire family in a car accident and is shipped off […]

Book Review: ‘The Girl..

Book Review: ‘The Girl From the Well’ by Rin Chupeco

The Girl from the Well by Rin Chupeco started out as a really solid read that had me totally captivated, but then it all fell apart. Let’s all take a moment to mourn the lose of such promise. So here’s the deal. The Girl from the Well is a novel that pulls heavily from Japanese folklore and J-horror movie tropes. In the novel, our narrator is a ghost named Okiku, betrayed and murdered centuries earlier, […]

Book Review: ‘Snow Lik..

Book Review: ‘Snow Like Ashes’ by Sara Raasch

Snow Like Ashes by Sara Raasch is a solid start to a fantasy series that I’m sure will eventually have some sort of movie/TV interest. And while I’m definitely going to be diving into the next book (Ice Like Fire) in the series soon, I can’t say that I don’t have any complaints. First off, a little background. Snow Like Ashes is based in a world called Primoria, consisting of eight separate kingdoms. Meira, our […]

Book Review: ‘The Stat..

Book Review: ‘The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight’ by Jennifer E. Smith

Unlike my first experience with Jennifer E. Smith, I really enjoyed reading The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight. It has everything you could want in a novel – European travel, chance meetings at an airport, cute boys with even cuter accents. It’s just a fluffy novel full of all sorts of feel good. As some of you will note, I wasn’t a huge fan of Smith’s Hello, Goodbye, and Everything In Between, so […]

Book Review: ‘The Boyf..

Book Review: ‘The Boyfriend Thief’ by Shana Norris

Okay, so I’d be lying if I said The Boyfriend Thief by Shana Norris didn’t have its fair share of issues. But I’d also be lying if I said I didn’t absolutely love it anyways. The Boyfriend Thief is the perfect beach read, or snowy day read…or pretty much any read that you’re looking for more relaxation than enlightenment. And yes, the outcome is predictable and you know what’s going to happen before you even […]

Book Review: ‘How to b..

Book Review: ‘How to be Brave’ by E. Katherine Kottaras

When it comes down to it, How to Be Brave by E. Katherine Kottaras was just one I couldn’t hold onto with any sort of passion. And once again, it was a novel that seemed like it had a lot of promise, but was missing some key elements within the story to really make it a great read. First and foremost, as many of you have found out from previous posts, I need my characters […]

Book Review: ‘Slasher ..

Book Review: ‘Slasher Girls & Monster Boys’ by Various Authors

Happy Halloween, everyone! In honor of this very wonderful, mostly spooky holiday, I felt it necessary to discuss Slasher Girls & Monster Boys, an anthology written by 14 of the hottest Young Adult authors out there. It’s like Stephen King took a bunch of writers under his bloodstained wing and said “Come, be my spine-tingling protege.” Basically, what I love about Slasher Girls & Monster Boys is that it’s not afraid to get bloody, but […]

Book Review: ‘UnEnchanted’ by Chanda Hahn

It’s been a while “Did Not Finish” post, but alas. We’re back together again. UnEnchanted by Chanda Hahn is the kind of novel that really disappoints me because I absolutely love the idea behind it, but the execution just fell flat for me as a reader. And I think that the main reason for my inability to get very far in the book was Mina’s voice, which seemed very juvenile in comparison to how I […]
