There Once Lived a Woman Who Tried to Kill Her Neighbor's Baby (2009)
language
English
3.64 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: An interesting and eclectic collection of 'scary' short stories (how perfect that I read this around Halloween?) that reminds me of the narratives of Murakami and Kurosawa. Some stories I perceived better than the others (in other terms, some spoke to my interpretation of the wor...
A Monster Calls (2011)
language
English
4.25 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: I loved this author's other books (the Chaos Walking trilogy) and this book did not disappoint even though he was finishing a story outlined by another author who passed away in 2007. The narrative style, while a little unconventional, felt unique and appropriately applied to the...
Taken by Him (2013)
language
English
3.82 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: Taken by him is short, 112 pages, but there is as whole lot of hot in those pages. Definitely an adult read that brings on the steam. Luke Preston is the billionaire playboy, and he is definitely a player. While recovering in Cancun after an assassination attempt, he meets Pey...
Black Spring (2013)
language
English
3.28 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: I finished Black Spring last night. I've always been a fan of Wuthering Heights and I loved the Pellinor series so I thought I'd give this a try. While it was a decent rendering of the overall storyline, it lacked the redemptive angle that made the original so good. It was all a ...

review 1: I loved the first book in this series and was impressed with the second. I have not read many duologies and liked that is was tightly wrapped up in book 2. Both books were action packed and nothing was wasted in the storytelling, nor was it drawn out. I thought the characters had...
Sacred Scars (2009)
language
English
4.1 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: Much like the first in this "trilogy", this book is often and uncomfortable. The characters are relatable in their weaknesses but it's so easy to hate them for them. Because the author seems to be evading the question so many have as to when the third book is actually coming it m...
Kinslayer (2013)

English
series
4.05 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: Trying to review a second book in a complicated series without giving away too much of it away is not an easy task. I can say that this goes from a somewhat edgy story to being the next George RR Martin style novel in a fairly short period of time. It's a compelling read that kee...
Out of Turn (2013)

English

review 1: Omg! Glued to every page of this book. Glad I wasn't Katheleen, would be too hard to choose and decide.“You know how many women would sacrifice a limb to be stuffed in a closet with two hot guys like me and Blane?”“I still loved Blane, that was true. I loved him, was attracted to...
No Place for a Lady (2012)
language
English
3.58 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: Meh. The leads grated on my nerves (especially with the female lead slipping between speaking normally and a phonetically spelled accent). The story could have been tightened by about 20 pages, and while I understand that the “forceful” and “possessive” male lead is appealing to ...

review 1: Determined to Obey is the last in the Dark Duet series from Kid's POV.. it was just barely Meh.. kinda fell flat for me. 2.5 stars.. i wish we could give 1/2 stars. But i rounded it up to 3.The Dark Duet Series is one of my favorites. One that has never really left my mind, and o...

English

review 1: I was really disappointed by this book. I loved Croggon's "Pellinor" series (great world building, interesting plot, awesome characters), so I had high hopes for this book, and it paled in comparison to her previous works. I felt that the world building in this book was rather we...
The Scorpio Races (2011)
language
English
4.08 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: I was told that this story is like a cross between "The Hunger Games" and the movie "hidalgo". I can understand why they made that comparison, but I don't think its an accurate one. Where "Hunger Games" takes off really quickly and most of the story takes place during the Games, ...

review 1: Jane Yellowrock finds herself in over head once again as her cop boyfriend has disappeared while undercover at the same time she has too deal with the sudden appearance of were-animals (both cats and wolves), vastly complicating her job as enforcer for the Master vampire of New O...
The Fine Art of Pretending (2014)
language
English
3.78 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: My occasional foray into NA/YA fiction led me - entirely by coincidence - to Rachel Harris's The Fine Art of Pretending. Best friends to lovers stories are found in the millions and those that happen in high school? Probably even more. But I did find myself rather drawn into both...

language
English
4.23 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: Von Marc-Uwe Kling und seinen Känguru-Chroniken habe ich schon eine ganze Menge gehört. Meistens waren die Meinungen zum Buch geradezu euphorisch und dementsprechend hoch waren meine Erwartungen. Das Buch war an sich zwar ganz ok, aber längst nicht das, was ich erwartet habe. Ich...

review 1: Dorian Sorenson had no idea what he was getting into when he took on his good friends daughter as an intern. In fact what started out as doing someone a favor turned into quite the predicament which he had to figure out if he wanted to keep it professional.....or let it become so...

review 1: i'm actually surprised i managed to finish this. i originally picked it up because i wanted to read more books where the narrator/main character begins the story with amnesia. the premise is largely misogynistic, the narrator - emma 2.0 - doesn't use contractions of any kind, spe...
The White Forest (2012)
language
English
3.28 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: The beginning recounting the main three characters' friendship growing up was helpful in understanding their personalities and why they made the choices they made. They were very realistic in that they each had flaws that I did not like but made them easier to relate to. As the s...

review 1: I did not like this all. From the first book I felt like quitting, but I was hoping the story came together later on. It didn't. I know the series has many positive reviews, so I feel bad giving a low score. I probably didn't like it because I was expecting an updated Pretty Woma...

review 1: This is a great series. Some Tolkien overlap, but overall worth reading.
review 2: Many elements obviously derived from LOTR. But I could read it 30 times!

The Mouse and the Christmas Cake (2000)
language
English
3.31 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: This is a charming rhyme about a mouse and his house atop the family Christmas Cake. It was written and illustrated by an unknown author in 1858. For a children’s tale it’s very short (about a mouse’s tail in length) so I won’t give any of the details away, but it’s brilliantly ...

review 1: Cuốn sách này tôi nghĩ nên bán kèm cho bạn đọc 1 lọ muối, với hướng dẫn sử dụng là trước khi đọc phải ngâm trong nước muối đậm đặc vài ngày để bớt nhạt, và trong quá trình đọc phải liên tục rắc muối vào từng trang sách.Về độ nhạt của sách thì nước ốc phải gọi bằng cụ, nên đổi tựa...

review 1: I had heard about the Voynich Manuscript a few different times...the most recent being on a podcast. It seemed very interesting, so I finally got a chance to look it over today. I "read" it in one sitting, as no one knows how to decipher its text. Although I found the book very m...

review 1: 3.5 starsThis is a prequel novella to Archetype, and it features the two main male leads, Declan and Noah. Though it is a prequel, it almost relies on having read Archetype to know who the characters are and how they fit into the series, to care about their story.It was a quick r...

review 1: First, the look on Crane's face on this cover is exactly how I picture him, especially in this story. Especially when he puts on the highbrow air that he doesn't so secretly despise. Especially when Stephen or Merrick is being threatened with harm.Next, getting another slice of t...

review 1: The Trouble With Rules is a good MG book about peer pressure and friendship. The word that comes to mind is cute. Summer could have been a little more influential in the story, as the book jacket suggested. And I find it really hard to believe that Mr. Allen wouldn't even list...

review 1: For the most part, I did like the book, I just didn't love it. The story started out strong with a very amusing and flirtation encounter between Ross and Elinor. I loved their encounter when Elinor was fishing. Their attraction and fit really came off the page. But then the s...
