When I saw this was available as an e-novella, I had to purchase it right away.  I bought it before I got ahold of the ARC of Dorothy Must Die, but just didn’t get around to it until after I read it.  It was nice to read this because it did kind of answer some […]

I was lucky enough to get to read an ARC of this that was sent to the Barnes and Noble where I work part time by HarperCollins.  I was extremely excited to read it because I had been hearing so much about it on other blogs, as well as from Epic Reads, and then the […]

I think I once again got this book from a Scholastic book fair, or maybe from one of their warehouse sales.  I enjoyed the first one in the series, Ruined, and was pleased to see a sequel to it.  And for the most part I enjoyed this book as much as the first one. The […]

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where we spotlight upcoming releases that we’re eagerly awaiting. Just like last week I’ve chosen the third and final installment in a series. It’s a series I’ve been lucky enough to read as e-galleys thanks to Edelweiss and Tor Teen.  You can read my […]

Thanks to Harlequin Teen and Netgalley for allowing me to read an e-galley of this final book in an awesome series.  I must start out by saying that once again I have been pleasantly surprised at how well the series has been ended.  So many trilogies where I just loved the first book disappointed me […]

Review: The Blood Gospel by J..

I have been a huge James Rollins fan for a long time.  But in the past few years I’ve kind of slacked off on reading his books.  His Sigma Series I really enjoyed at first, but just haven’t been in the mood to pick up and read, so now I’m a few books behind in […]

Thanks again to Tor Teen and Edelweiss for allowing me to read an e-galley of this back in the fall.  I chose this one based on the synopsis, and it wasn’t bad.  I enjoyed it, and once I got into it I was hooked. I do have to say that unfortunately the end of it […]
