The Darkest Mind by: Alexandra Bracken

The mind is indeed a powerful tool, it is where secrets, thoughts, and dreams are held. Bracken shows how dangerous the mind can be, and how the darkest of minds have light and abilities that are controlled and uncontrolled.  With the youth having extraordinary powers fighting for a place with choices. Besides, what is the worst part for these children?

Quintana of Charyn by Melina Marchetta

I enjoyed this read. Marchetta has pulled the characters and plot together again.  I hope there is more to the stories of Lumatere and its neighboring nations.

Dark Triumph By: Robin LaFevers

Awesome sequel to Grave Mercy.  LaFevers has kept with the theme, and characters from Grave Mercy. I love how LaFevers not every daughter of death has the same talents, or gifts. I cannot wait for the next book.

The Runaway King By: Jennifer A. Nielsen

Loved this sequel to the False Prince.  Nielsen has done a great job at keeping the characters the same, and making the plot fascinating. I can’t wait until the last book is out in this trilogy. I want to see how things play out.

The Language of Flowers By Vanessa Diffenbaugh

This was not my first choice to read; however, it has been an interesting read. I loved the dual story lines.  The different time frames that we see between Victoria’s life helps the character become more alive and real. I do not care for the ending of the novel, it was way to quick. However it was one I would recommend to someone who know flowers, and would want a touch of romance.

Batgirl Vol. 1: The Darkest Reflection (The New 52) by Gail Simone

In the new 52 DC series, it has been three years since Batgirl was in a wheelchair. She is now able to walk again, and has even picked the cape and cowl back up. She is now dealing with a new foe that is targeting people that should have died in one case or another but survived. This new foe has already taken out several people and Batgirl has found out that her name is on the list as well. She still isn’t at her best since she has just recently started fighting crime again, and she is having some problems taking this new villain down. This was the first Batgirl story that I have read and it was pretty good. I knew a lot about the character already since I’m a huge Batman fan, but never had read one of her comics. The art was also really good.

Enchanted By: Alethea Kontis

Its like the master of fairy tales. It blends soo many nursery rhymes and fairy tales together with a good plot and a wonderful story. I have enjoyed reading this book.

Ironskin By Tina Connolly

This was a interesting twist to Jane Eyre.  The plot and characters are captivating and unique. This retelling of Jane Eyre,  is one that i thought was done very well, and I have enjoyed reading it.

Dragonswood By: Janet Lee Carey

The book was great. Tess had to find her way and and learn the truths meant for her. Making new friends and learning more about herself than she could have ever thought of. Carey did a great job at making the story real.

Thief’s Covenant By: Ari Marmell

The cover captivated me, and the synopsis was intriguing.  The plot however was the most unique part of the book. I was not written in an orderly timeline, it would go from two years ago to present to six years ago to four years ago, and so forth. However it was a great way to make the plot stronger and so much more interesting.
