Early Review: Don’t You Wish by Roxanne St. Claire

Early Review: Don’t You Wish by Roxanne St. Claire

Oh my, where do I start? This book was so wonderful!! I’ve been stuck in this horrible rut of mediocre books with vomit-inducing romances for so long that I was beginning to think it was just me. But as it turns out, it isn’t! I loved this one from start to finish. It opens with Annie getting totally shot down by some buttface jock and I immediately saw her as a kindred spirit, because let’s face it – I was […]

I felt zero surprise, zero joy, and all in all zero emotion. I found myself procrastinating by doing something, anything to […]

Review: Wildefire by Karsten Knight

Review: Wildefire by Karsten Knight

I ordered this book from Amazon about 6 months ago after it came out. I kept meaning to read it, but after reading a few really bad reviews I just kept putting it off. My thoughts after finishing? Why did I wait so long to make my own opinion?!?! Charles Xavier, meet Percy Jackson. I loved it! I must confess that when I read it (even after owning it for months), I had absolutely no clue about the mythology tied […]
