Review: Delilah Dusticle and the Cursed Tempest

Review: Delilah Dusticle and the Cursed Tempest

  My Review I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. This in no way influenced my opinion of the book.   Another adorable installment in the Delilah Dusticle adventures!   The series grew up a bit in this book. Delilah and the gang go on an adventure in India to save Dev’s sister, Kirin. Kirin is being threatened by a powerful, magical dust storm so of course Delilah is just…

Review: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling

Review: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling

  My Review This was my first time reading this book. I have never even watched the movies, and somehow I was lucky enough to avoid any spoilers. I got to enjoy the story like it was meant to be enjoyed so I know more than a few of you Potter fans wish you were me right now and got to fall in love with this series for the first time. What can I say?   While reading this, I…

Review: Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater

Review: Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater

  My Review Everything that I didn’t like about this book I’m positive other people love so take this review with a grain of salt.   The author tossed almost all the traditional werewolf folklore out the window, but I happen to like traditional werewolf folklore so it didn’t work for me. I love the fact that Sam wasn’t a typical “pretty boy alpha male with a perfect body”, but werewolf novels are one of the few times that type of…

Review: Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers

Review: Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers

  My Review This was the definition of a three star read. I didn’t hate it, but I didn’t like or love it either.  When she is thirteen years old, Ismae is sent to a convent filled with nuns who serve their god Mortain aka Death. She is sent there to avoid a marriage to the old and cruel man her father sold her to. Ismae becomes an assassin and at 17 she is sent on her first  major assignment….

Review: Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge

Review: Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge

  My Review I have read and enjoyed several Beauty and the Beast retellings so when I say this is one of the best Beauty and the Beast retellings I have ever read, I don’t make that statement lightly.   The author didn’t stick too closely to the source material. Nyx wasn’t exactly beautiful and Ingnifex wasn’t really a beast, but the author made sure to take several elements of the original story and give them a fresh twist. The…

Review: You are Mine by Janeal Falor

Review: You are Mine by Janeal Falor

  My Review Serena lives in a world filled with magic and where women are considered to be nothing more than the possessions of their warlock masters. This was a well written book, but the entertainment was lacking for me. The magic system wasn’t explained in any sort of detail. All I know is that the men are powerful warlocks who seem to feed off the magic the women possess; however, the women never perform any magic themselves. I have…

Review: Starstruck by Brenda Hiatt

Review: Starstruck by Brenda Hiatt

  My Review This was a cute little book in the beginning, but it didn’t take long for me to become annoyed with it. I don’t so much think that the problem lies with the storytelling. I have just read a few books that were similar and I liked them a lot more. It’s never good when both the little and big aspect of a book cause you to cringe and roll your eyes. First of all I hated the…

Review: The Moon and the Tide by Derrolyn Anderson

Review: The Moon and the Tide by Derrolyn Anderson

  My Review I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for my honest review. This in no way effected my opinion of this book.   In The Moon and the Tide, things have gone from bad to worse for Marina and Ethan. Their relationship is tested by both new and old obstacles and they spend a lot of time either fighting for their love or fighting with each other. When they did argue, I…

Review: Five-Seven-Five by C.E. Wilson

Review: Five-Seven-Five by C.E. Wilson

  My Review I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for my honest review. This in no way effected my opinion of this book. There were a lot of mysteries in this book. Everything from who the main characters really are to the meaning of the title “Five-Seven-Five, was cloaked in mystery. By the end of the book, I received some answers, but other things were left up in the air. The first mystery…

Review: Of Beast and Beauty by Stacey Jay

Review: Of Beast and Beauty by Stacey Jay

  My Review This was such a beautiful book. It was fanciful, romantic, poetic, and thought provoking.   Beauty and the Beast is by far my favorite fairy tale, and I love reading retellings. At this point I consider myself a little bit of an expert on the subject so when I say this was a good retelling, you can believe it. I can’t promise that you will enjoy the book as much as I did because I think it…
