The Legend Mackinnon by Donna Kauffman

I found this book in a bin full of other paperback books and I was immediately drawn to its cover design. People find it surprising that I like plaid; probably because I wear mostly solid colored hoodies and jeans. Yes, it’s another fiction book but without vampires and werewolves or any overdone brooding supernatural. I [...]

Tiger’s Curse by Colleen Houck

Tiger’s Curse was recommended to me by a friend who told me I would absolutely love it back in 2011 when it came out. Life got in the way and I forgot it was on my shelf for four years, then I got bored and decided it was about time I read it. My first [...]

Soulless by Gail Carriger

I often wonder what kind of world would it be if the dark creatures of the night (vampires, werewolves and ghosts—mummies?) lived among us—the normal, fragile, meat-bags mortals. Well for one thing—the current pop obsession over suave vampires that glitter in the sun and the insanely ripped werewolves would probably never make it on television [...]

Scarlet in the Snow by Sophie Masson

It is a tale as old as time—and this book is a remix…or pre-mix? Scarlet in the Snow is a retelling of “The Beauty and the Beast”. Although it is not new for classic fairy tales to be rewritten, they are generally horrible or pale in comparison to the “original”. It is safe to assume [...]

Illusions of Fate by Kiersten White

A very interesting book. Loved how the cover drew me in, but the plot kept me within the covers. I loved the book to bird (Sir Bird) character. Sir Bird added in a interesting concept to the plot. White did a great job at creating the plot along with creating an ending, realistic with the [...]

Poison by Bridget Zinn

Awesome book. Zinn did a great job at making the story line cute, funny and very interesting. Has a great plot twist, and a great set of characters.

Ranger’s Apprentice: The Ruins of Gorlan by John Flanagan

Recently I have been trying to read more “fiction” books. Personally, I prefer nonfiction books; usually I read books that sound like something I’d be required to read for a class. But, to avoid being a dried-up, spinster-like individual I thought I would try and expand my horizons and show people that I am a [...]

Magisterium by Jeff Hirsch

A very intruding read. Seeing how this world is divided, and how items will fall to work when moving over a simple line marking two different places was quite interesting. I didn’t like how Hirsch ended this book. I didn’t see it as a solution to any problem that was created/presented within the plot.

Breath of Iron By Kate Cross

An awesome steampunk novel. It is the third book in this series (Clockwork Agents). I love how the suspense is built up over the course of the book and how neatly Cross wraps up. She  leaves room for more novels; however there doesn’t have to be anymore. Cross does an excellent job at describing a [...]

The Goddess Test By Aimee Carter

Great book, I loved how the story kept the Greek gods in their typical natures but also fit on a modern day earth. I so can’t wait to read the next book to see how Hades will have a wife and queen.
