Review: NYXIA by Scott Reintgen

NYXIA was such an awesome read! I should just say "GO READ THIS!' but I want to tell you why I loved it so much first. This story has space, adventure, danger, a cool substance called nyxia, romance, alliances and betrayals. I have to admit I really love science fiction. I think up until reading [...]

Review: RELEASE by Patrick Ness

RELEASE is my first Patrick Ness book. I have been interested in reading his books for a while since they all seem to be so popular. I can see why since the subject matter conquered in this story is important. Combine that with his descriptive scene details, depth of characters, and easy to follow dialogue [...]

Reviews: THE SEVEN REALMS by Cinda Williams Chima

I admit I read these books because of all the love I felt for FLAMECASTER and SHADOWCASTER. I know I kinda spoiled myself for this series. It turns out that it doesn't really matter. I fully enjoyed reading all the books in this series. I absolutely loved the world that the author has created and [...]

Review: SHADOWCASTER by Cinda Williams Chima

This story is the second in the Shattered Realms trilogy. Although the writing is so good I could scarcely put it down, I felt like once again I was being introduced to new characters. We get snippets of Jenna and Ash, but they are not the point of this story. This story is mostly about [...]

Review: FLAMECASTER by Cinda Williams Chima

This review might not be coherent. I really loved this story, but it's complicated. It's hard to explain. My love for this book is hard to talk about. Bear with me as I try to put my thoughts about this book into words. Famecaster is one of those stories that has everything I want in [...]

The Thing About Jellyfish took me completely by surprise and right out of my reading rut. I learned a few things and cried without even realizing it. Suzy's actions were a surprisingly intelligent reaction to a really sad situation. This was such an easy read, I pretty much read it in one day. I was [...]

How cute was this story? It was almost too perfect. I loved this YA romance. Everything, Everything was such a great story and the way the book was laid out made this such an easy read. I highly recommend this for readers young at heart. Madeline has been sick her entire life. She is suffering [...]

SEEKER (Seeker #1) by Arwen Elys Dayton

Oh my! This book is hard for me to rate. The beginning was a little confusing and then it got really good. Then I got lost. There were too many details and too much world building. I have no idea where this series is going. Then the last few chapters everything really came into focus. [...]
