Fame, Fate, and the First Kiss by Kasie West

Fame, Fate, and the First Kiss by Kasie West

February 7, 2019 2 Comments Regina

There’s just something about Kasie West’s writing-style that makes an otherwise silly plot and shallow romance into something sophisticated and poignant. Her stories are addictive, entertaining, and just plain fun–in the truest sense of the word. The majority of the action unfolds on a zombie-romance movie set and in the on-set trailer of 17 year-old Lacey Barnes (FUN, right!?). Lacey is an ambitious and talented teen on the verge of stardom now that she is […]

The Suffering Tree by Elle Cosimano: The Review, the Controversy

October 15, 2017 2 Comments Regina

“It’s Dark Magic Brings Him Back.” The name and the cover of this book were not appealing to me. I did, however, think that the dark synopsis was original, therefore intriguing. I did not want to be lame and judge a book by its cover, so I started reading it. Long story short, I could not put this book down. This novel was a refreshing departure from the market-driven YA books that I have been […]

New Year, New Reading Challenges!

New Year, New Reading Challenges!

January 27, 2017 3 Comments Regina

Like many of you, I do not get around to starting my ”New Year” until the end of January. The first few weeks of the month are necessary adjustment days as I recover from the blur that is November and December. In fact, as I am writing this, the 2017 calendar I ordered online still has not arrived in my mailbox. So, I feel perfectly justified in not starting my new year’s plans until February. […]

BOHEMIAN GOSPEL WAS ONE OF MY FAVORITE BOOKS OF 2015. “A fast-moving, seductive read. A fascinating mix of dark fantasy and rich historical detail.”  Author of The Bloodletter’s Daughter Like any good book, Bohemian Gospel is a book for all seasons. However, I suggest you hurry and go buy a copy to read now, during the Winter months, so you can cuddle up under a fuzzy blanket by a toasty fire. This book will make […]

Dark Metropolis (Dark Metropolis #1) by Jaclyn Dolamore

August 24, 2015 0 Comments Regina

“Cabaret meets Cassandra Clare-a haunting magical thriller set in a riveting 1930s-esque world.” When I was 16, there was this movie that came out called Dark City. The trailer looked so nouveau-weird and mysterious. It looked like the coolest kind of psychological thriller. I went to see the movie and felt more than a little confused but still thought the film was a cool concept. That’s what Dark Metropolis reminded me of. Both have the […]

Review: This Is Where It Ends by Marieke Nijkamp

August 22, 2015 0 Comments Christy

REVIEW: ~ 54 minutes. The entire story spans a timeframe of fifty four minutes. ~ Although there are other published books that deal with this topic. I think the way this story is written sets it apart from the others. It’s told in multiple points of view, and I really enjoyed learning each featured characters perspective. Learning how they were connected with each other in one way or another. Ms Nijkamp did a great job […]

Under the Influence was a great read that had unique and interesting characters. I really liked Dalton. When things got tough he did what he had to do in order to insure wrongs were made right. Both he and Spencer came from less than desirable backgrounds. Their young lives were rough. Spencer by far lucked out when she was placed with a good family. Eventually Dalton was placed there too. It was then that Dalton […]

Release Day & Review: All the Rage by Courtney Summers

April 14, 2015 0 Comments Christy

All the Rage is written by a new to me author. The synopsis sounded really interesting so I thought I’d give it a try. For the most part I think the book was okay. It didn’t really blow me away. At times it was slow going. The suspense aspect was good, but I was easily able to figure that it out pretty easily. I found Romy to be quite a strange girl. I can’t really […]
