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 Freaks of Greenfield High by Maree Anderson

Review: The Freaks of Greenfield High by Maree Anderson

  My Review This was a cute idea for a book but the execution was off. It reminded me a lot of those campy 80’s sci-fi fantasy movies that I love.  It was filled with melodrama, misunderstanding, and over the top action. All those things made The Freaks of Greenfield High a fun and quick read, but the plot and romance fell flat.   Jay is a cyborg who has just been forced to killer her creator/father and go on…

Review: The Summer I Became a Nerd by Leah Rae Miller

Review: The Summer I Became a Nerd by Leah Rae Miller

  My Review The Summer I Became a Nerd should really be entitled The Summer I Learned to be Myself because Maddie didn’t “become” a nerd, she was born that way. Maddie has a minor traumatic experience when she is in middle school that convinces her if she ever wants to be liked by other people, she needs to hide her true self from them. This leads to her double life. By day she is a carefree cheerleader who loves…

Review: The Turning Tides by Derrolyn Anderson

Review: The Turning Tides by Derrolyn Anderson

  My Review I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. This in no way affected my opinion of this book. Sadly, Marina’s tales have come to an end, but thankfully, her final adventure was filled with plenty of action, romance, happiness, and surfing.   While I love the romance, magic, and adventure that took place in all four books, my favorite aspect of the Marina’s Tales series is the character…

Review: The Fate of the Muse by Derrolyn Anderson

  My Review I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. This in no way effects my opinion of this book.   One of my favorite things about not only this book but the entire series so far is how fantastic and exciting the lives of Marina and her friends are. Marina is this talented artist whose paintings are already selling for a couple thousand dollars a pop, her cousin Cruz…

Review: The Moon and the Tide by Derrolyn Anderson

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…
