Review: Stone Field by Christy Lenzi

First, thanks to Macmillan Children’s Publishing Group and Netgalley for allowing me to read an egalley of this book.  I was first intrigued by it because it was set in the state of Missouri, where I live.  Second it takes place during the Civil War, a time period that I always find fascinating to read […]

Review: Relic by Gretchen McNeil

First, thanks to Epic Reads Impulse and Edelweiss for allowing me to read an e-galley of this title.  I have been a huge fan of Gretchen McNeil’s horror stories for quite a while.  And this one doesn’t disappoint.  In fact it is one that I could seriously see being done as a movie.  It had […]
