Review: Seizure by Kathy Reichs

Review: Seizure by Kathy Reichs

I have to admit, I didn’t read the synopsis before I started this. So, when the very first chapter was about pirates, I was a bit confused (albeit intrigued). My thought was, What does this have to do with a group of teenagers? But soon I found out – when Tory discovers the legend of Anne Bonny. From there on this book was a riveting mixture of adventure, danger, and excitement. I loved it!   The Virals bite off more than […]

Review: Wondrous Strange by Lesley Livingston

Review: Wondrous Strange by Lesley Livingston

This is another one that I didn’t really know what to think of at first. The first page instantly grabbed my attention with talk of Oberon, Titania, and Puck from A Midsummer’s Night dream. While I can’t stand the Shakespearean language (mainly because it’s way above my head, ha), I love the lore of the courts – mainly because of reading the Iron Fey by Julie Kagawa. So, after this first page, my expectations were set high.    Then I […]

Review: Need by Carrie Jones

Review: Need by Carrie Jones

I didn’t really know what to think of this book. It started out really slow and although I love paranormal stuff, this story didn’t seem to sell very well at first. It came off as a little cheesy and cliche in some spots, but as the story started to pick up I actually found myself enjoying it. I almost gave up a couple times, but after like page 150 or so it finally gets interesting.   In the beginning Zara […]

Review: Fins are Forever by Tera Lynn Childs

Review: Fins are Forever by Tera Lynn Childs

My first thought upon finishing this book: Ahhhhhhhh. I love happy endings, and I especially love books that leave no loose ends.    There’s trouble in paradise when Lily’s squid-brain cousin, Dosinia, shows up to live with her and learn the ways of humans. Things soon get knee-deep as said cousin takes an instant liking to Lily’s ex-crush. In an ironic twist of fate, Lily makes an unexpected trip home to visit.   I must say I admire Lily for […]

Review: Forgive My Fins by Tera Lynn Childs

Review: Forgive My Fins by Tera Lynn Childs

While I hate chick flicks, I adore Disney movies. And this book is definitely Disney material. It’s like the Little Mermaid meets the Ugly Truth (if you haven’t seen it, you should watch it).   Lily has been “in love” – and I quote because it’s really more of obsession – with Brody for 3 years. They have a passing conversation here and there but for the most part he doesn’t really notice her. Her arrogant neighbor, Quince, decides to […]

Review: Born at Midnight by C. C. Hunter

Review: Born at Midnight by C. C. Hunter

So Kylie comes from a dysfunctional family…in the beginning, her parents (who I really just want to punch in the face repeatedly) are getting a divorce. She gets busted for being in the wrong place at the wrong time and gets shipped off to a camp of supernaturals. She has no idea that it’s actually a camp for supernaturals, so when she starts meeting her campmates things get a little freaky. But then the camp leader, Holiday, pulls her aside […]
