Review: Pacifica by Kristen Simmons

Review: Pacifica by Kristen Simmons

Kristen sure has a way with writing characters and building worlds! There wasn’t a huge amount of action in the first half because she spent a lot of time really building up those parts. And it made them feel so vivid and real! The pacing is a bit slow to start, but it gives you time to savor the world and understand it, and also savor the character development. Kristen also has a way of writing an empowering story of […]

Review: Blood, Ink and Fire by Ashley Mansour

Review: Blood, Ink and Fire by Ashley Mansour

I think this book had fabulous potential. The idea of it all was epic – in the future, books and reading are forbidden. How scary is that? I think Ashley Mansour was really onto something great here, because it speaks to the heart of every single one of us readers. A world without books is the worst kind of world we could possibly imagine! The concept really was brilliant. But there were a lot of issues I had with it that […]

Review: Taste by Kate Evangelista

Review: Taste by Kate Evangelista

Before I read this, with the mention of Night and Day students I just couldn’t help myself…I immediately thought of this: So of course I was intrigued! It ended up being almost nothing like Vampire Knight, though, and I was pleasantly surprised at how unique the story was. I usually despise love triangles, but this one wasn’t bad at all. I gotta hand it to Phoenix, she stuck with her decision. It was never really a competition for her. And […]

Review: Between Seasons by Aida Brassington

Review: Between Seasons by Aida Brassington

I don’t really have much to say about this book since I liked it. I have absolutely nothing to complain about as far as prose goes (which is what makes long book reviews for me…spending time complaining). The first line of this book is “Whoever said dying was easy was full of crap,” so just with the very first sentence I was hooked. The beginning was interesting and attention-grabbing, giving you a glimpse at dying and the afterlife through Patrick’s eyes. […]

Review: Rippler by Cidney Swanson

Review: Rippler by Cidney Swanson

Cidney Swanson is the first author I’ve had the privilege of talking to (if only via email and twitter). I want to give a special thanks Cidney for her generosity in giving me a copy of this! It was my first experience with Kindle…I figured I would hate reading on an electronic device, but surprisingly it wasn’t too bad. It’s not something I’d prefer over holding the real tangible thing in my hands (and the smell of books…mmmm). But I […]
