Review: How to Keep Rolling After a Fall by Karol Cozzo

Review: How to Keep Rolling After a Fall by Karol Cozzo

  My Review I received a free copy of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This in no way influenced my opinion. My, my, this was a sneaky little book. When I read the synopsis, I was expecting to laugh, swoon, and maybe even cry a little bit. And while I did do all of those things, I didn’t do them for the reasons I expected.   Cyber bullying is a big deal. There is simply so excuse…

Review: Doing it for Love by Cassie Mae

Review: Doing it for Love by Cassie Mae

  My Review I received this book for free from Loveswept in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. I read my first Cassie Mae book about two and a half years ago. And over the course of those years, her writings have grown up before my eyes. She started out focusing on innocent high school romance, graduated to slightly more mature college aged relationships, and now…

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: 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: A Fairy Extraordinary Christmas Story by A.J. York

Review: A Fairy Extraordinary Christmas Story by A.J. York

  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. It felt like Christmas came a little early when I was offered an opportunity to read this. I never pass up a chance to read a story by A.J. York because I always know they will be short and sweet. A Fairy Extraordinary Christmas Story is the perfect little book to get you and your…

Review: Curse of the Chupacabra by Michael Hebler

Review: Curse of the Chupacabra by Michael Hebler

  My Review I received this book for free from the author in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.   I liked it even more than the first in the series. Suzanne and Jessie are trying to figure out what they are going to do now that the chupacabra is presumed to be dead; however since this is a trilogy it is safe to assume that…

Author Interview: James Moser

Interview 1. I know you’re a teacher so how much of an influence did that have on your decision to write Chasing Prophecy? Teaching is the reason this book exists.  The kids are based on bits and pieces of lots of former students.  I wanted to write about young adults transforming 2. Did you allow your students to read your book before it was published, and if so what were their reactions? You know, no student knows this exists.  I…

Author Interview: Tabitha Vohn

Author Interview Please tell us something about your newest novel, Tomorrow Is A Long Time? This novel is my own little love letter to Brando, Tennessee Williams (whose film adaptations Brando is noted for), and Old Hollywood; torrid, wonderful place that it was. To quote Tennessee (in my own analogy), Old Hollywood gave us “truth, in the pleasant guise of illusion”. Brando just broke my heart, on and off the screen. Such a talented, beautiful actor; such a miserable life….
