Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where we spotlight upcoming releases that we’re eagerly awaiting.   I’ve chosen another sequel this week.  It’s a sequel to a time travel book that I enjoyed last year, Earth and Sky.  Another pretty cover for this one as well!  Here is the blurb […]

First, thanks to Burrows Publishing and Netgalley for allowing me to read an e-galley of this.  It was okay.  As I look back at it, it probably was a little better than I thought.  The idea is an interesting one, I just got a little bored at parts.  The main character is a 16 year […]

First thanks to Netgalley and Amazon Children’s Publishing for allowing me to read an e-galley of this.  I’ve been a fan of Megan Crewe since I read the first book in The Fallen World trilogy, The Way We Fall.  I’m behind in that series, still need to read the last one.  But I was excited […]

Review: The 5th Wave by Rick ..

I won a copy of this as an e-book a few months ago.  I decided I needed to read it, finally.  And it was definitely a good book!  Now I am very eager for part two.  I like how it took into consideration all the past books/movie theories about what aliens would do when they […]

A to Z April – U: UFOs

Okay, maybe I’m stretching again for a topic today.  But I do enjoy a good book about UFOs or alien abduction type stories.  So, once again I will share 5 of my favorite of this type of book. 1.   Now this is a very recent YA book, in fact I don’t think it is […]

I FINALLY picked this one up and read it.  I’ve actually owned a copy since I purchased it last May at the RT Convention so that I could get it autographed.  Finishing this will also get me an entry in my 2014 Prequels and Sequels Challenge, although I think I have a short story/e-novella to […]

First, thanks to Crown Publishing and Edelweiss for allowing me to read an e-galley of this.  And extra thanks to whatever kept it from expiring on the date I had written, January 21st, since I wasn’t able to get all the way through it until the 24th.  I was a little daunted at first because […]

Icons (Icons #1) by Margaret S..

I was lucky enough to win a copy of this from Little, Brown Books for Young Readers, and once again it was through a Shelf Awareness Giveaway!  The premise at first didn’t “grab” me, but I knew that as I had loved Beautiful Creatures by both Margaret Stohl and Kami Garcia, I would probably love […]

I Am Number Four by Pittacus L..

Once again I must admit that the cover of this book, the original cover anyway, caught my attention. And I figured, oh, I’ll read it later. Then, I saw a movie preview for it, and though, yeah, I’d better read this at some time. But still, didn’t pick it up. Then a few months ago, […]

Deep Storm by Lincoln Child

I’ve been a fan of Lincoln Child since I borrowed the book The Relic from one of my high school students my first year of teaching. I’ve since read through all the books in that series that he co-wrote with Douglas Preston, and I’ve moved on to the books each of them has authored on […]
