Review: Velveteen by Daniel M..

I got an ARC of this book through the YA Book Exchange a while back, and had loaned it to a friend.  I got it back a few months ago, and just got around to reading it this past week.  It was a longer book, over 400 pages, so I took a bit longer reading […]

Once again thanks to both Spencer Hill Press and Netgalley for allowing me to read an e-galley of this book.  And it was good to read it almost right after I finished the first one, Perfection, which I reviewed HERE.  And I don’t know if it was because I had just finished the first one […]

First thanks to Spencer Hill Press and Netgalley for allowing me to read an e-galley of this title.  It actually came out this July, at least in the US.  And I think the sequel, Flawed, which I also have an e-galley of, comes out in August.  So it is nice having them to read together.  […]

Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga’s Reviews.  It is a way for us to share the new books we have collected.  Several things this week to share, not a bad week.  Free Nook Books: I feel like I’ve seen this one talked about, either on other blogs, or as an e-galley somewhere, but it sounded […]

Review: Amity by Micol Ostow

Thank you to Egmont USA and Netgalley for allowing me to read an e-galley of this title.  Unfortunately, while it had some definitely scary parts to it, very horror movie like,  I wasn’t necessarily as thrilled with it as I had hoped to be.  You see, I recently looked into the whole Amityville Horror stories, […]

I have been waiting such a long time to read this book.  I had hoped so much to get an ARC of it, and didn’t.  I made sure it was one that I purchased at the high school library where I work though, because the Beautiful Creatures series is so popular, and this is by […]
