Audio Review: The Lost Sisters by Holly Black

Audio Review: The Lost Sisters by Holly Black

The Lost Sisters by is a novella that is part of . It follows The Cruel Prince….well sort of. Told from Taryn’s point of view, this novella is part-apology, part-defense of Taryn falling in love with Locke. Y’all I loved this little novella! It is compelling and while I found myself hating Taryn a little […]

#MyTBRL Review: Twilight by Stephenie Meyer

I don’t even know how to begin this review. This isn’t the first time I’ve read ‘s Twilight. It isn’t even the second or third. I’ve read the countless times since I was first introduced to the series in the Fall of 2008. I credit Twilight with bringing me out of the dark ages (aka […]

Review: Brentwood’s Ward by Michelle Griep

Review: Brentwood’s Ward by Michelle Griep

Brentwood’s Ward by is the first in that combines mystery with a touch of romance. While the series itself is based on a real profession and location in London during the late 1700s to mid-1800s, the characters and story are pure fiction. I found myself engrossed at times, missing meals to finish the book. Nicholas […]

Review: Shock of Fate by D.L. Armillei

Review: Shock of Fate by D.L. Armillei

This review first appeared on Young Adult Book Central. Shock of Fate by is the first in the series. Aside from the gorgeous cover (y’all seriously, I’m drooling over here), the blurb hoooked me. Alternate realities/dimensions are a favorite of mine, and this one doesn’t disappoint. Vanessa Cross, Van for short, lives on Providence Island, […]

Audio Review: Wildcard by Marie Lu

Audio Review: Wildcard by Marie Lu

I don’t even know where to start! Wildcard by is the final book in the duology. I really enjoyed Warcross and couldn’t wait to dive into the final story especially after the ending of the first book. Who didn’t want to dive in after Hideo’s treachery?! I had to know what would happen to Emika, […]

Audio Review: The Siren by Kiera Cass

Audio Review: The Siren by Kiera Cass

The Siren by is one of my new favorite reads. A standalone romance about the mythical creatures, the book is unlike anything I’ve ever read or I guess in this case listened too. I enjoyed the mythology blended with life today, the heartbreaking romance, and the bond between sisters who don’t share blood. Beautifully written, […]

Review: The Deer King by Ben Spencer

Review: The Deer King by Ben Spencer

The Deer King by is the first in a series of novellas by the same name and is set in a fictional land reminiscent of colonial times. I found myself drawn to the setting. The author gives a complete view of through the characters, how they’re dressed, how they interact, and the differences in their […]
