Review: This is Me by C. E. Wilson

Review: This is Me by C. E. Wilson

  My Review The plot: I am a huge fan of old fashioned science fiction, but I have trouble finding newer books that use those classic formulas so this was a bit of a treat.   Chloe is a young woman who lives in a world filled with androids. These androids are called Assist and their entire purpose is to please their human owners. When Chloe gets a job in the city as a substitute teacher, her parents will only…

Review: Defying Gravity by Kendra C. Highley

  My Review Plot: Defying Gravity is a cute little romantic story about best friends, Zoey and Parker. Zoey and Parker have been best friends since they were in diapers. Their parents are so close that Zoey’s parents bought a vacation home right next door to Parker’s family home. Zoey and her family spend every Spring break with Parker’s family, and that works just fine for him because not only is Zoey his best friend she is also the girl…

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: Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers

  My Review This was the definition of a three star read.

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…
