Review: Defying Gravity by Kendra C. Highley

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: 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…
