  • My True Essence on June 20, 2011

    This was my first book by Ms Marks and it was an interesting read about a very important subject-breast cancer. I liked how she wrote the story to show that all women could get breast cancer with or without a family history, no matter what job they had or how much money they had. This story was great in showing how women can overcome cancer and find their "true essence", along with having family support. Overall I liked how she wrote this story and how all the characters were entwined.
  • Payback's a Witch on July 07, 2011

    This was my first by Rachel Astor and I thoroughly enjoyed reading this story It is a great quirky romance that includes witches, love, curses, friendships and much more. This was a great story, well written. I hope to read more from Ms. Astor.
  • Shelter (Blood Haze: Book One) on July 08, 2011

    This story is intended for young teens, not adults who have read True Blood, and the like. The story caught my attention when Tara Shuler made her vampires different from Twilight, etc. I had a hard time with the dialogue and Kai being so clingy, it was just annoying to me. Overall though I thought it was an interesting quick read that any teen would love to read, with only mild language and no sex scenes.
  • Gravity on July 11, 2011

    I was instantly taken in with the town of Hell and the paranormal activity there. I loved how this was not only a ghost story, but included a little romance, some murders, missing girls, and a haunted orphanage. I can not wait for the next in the series to come out. This was a great quick read full of mystery and suspense. I just wish Ms Boyd had went into a little more detail about Ariel's grandmother's history and given us a little bit more detail about the town of Hell. I would definitely recommend this book to others.
  • Three for Avadar on July 17, 2011

    I loved reading this story. It has a blend of romance, heroism, sorcery and more all in one. I was grabbed by the first of this story to the end. It is well written and I thought it flowed nicely. This was a great fantasy tale of three weary travelers going to the same destination, Avadar. I would recommend this story to others to read.
  • The Paperboys Club on Aug. 02, 2011

    I really enjoyed reading this crime story, that had a supernatural appeal to it. It's about solving a cold case murder of a child, kids with "abilities", and a mental institute patient, that has all the "abilities" in one. This was a great fast read, well written and I highly recommend it to others.
  • Alone (Vampires and the Life of Erin Rose - 1) on Oct. 04, 2011

    I was unsure of this story at first, I mean another vampire story. I'm so glad I decided to read, "Alone" because it will grab you at the beginning and keep going. The story is about "good" vs "evil" vampires; or the Spectavi and Sanguan. You will find yourself pulling for Erin and at the same time want to shake her for some of her decisions. There is plenty of mystery, death and a hint of romance in this story. I agree with others, I would like to know more about the twins and their history. I also can't wait for the second one to be released, to see how Erin is adapting. I would definitely recommend to others to read.
  • Blood Duty on Oct. 11, 2011

    I thoroughly enjoyed reading this story. There was adventure, magic, sword fighting and romance all in one. The story was well written and flowed nicely. I couldn't stop reading it. I wanted the story to continue further. I would definitely recommend to others to read the story of Tamra and Jessup.
  • Rex Rising (Elei's Chronicles, #1) on Nov. 28, 2011

    I'm so glad I won this on Library Thing, it does not disappoint. This was a great science fiction read and very original. I instantly connected with all of the characters, Elei, Hera, Kalaes, to name a few. Their stories are believable and all connected by different parasites. I can not wait for the next chapter in their lives. I would definitely recommend to others to read.
  • Fresh Flesh on Dec. 06, 2011

    I wasn't sure what to expect when I won this story from Library Thing. I am so glad I did though, because right off from the start the book pulls you in. Mr. Russell has a wonderful way with words and descriptions. I would just like to point out that this is a horror story after all, there are a few graphic scenes. This story is about what might happen to a group of death row insane criminals when they are left on an island in the middle of nowhere and the island is "alive" waiting for them. Then throw in a shipwrecked woman and you've got a horror story and a twist. I would definitely recommend to others who love horror. I will definitely look into the next in the series when it comes out. Keep up the great writing.
  • The Old One on Dec. 13, 2011

    I won this from Library Thing and I'm so glad that I did. The Old One is a great little horror story about an isolated village and a "relic" spread around the village. Everyone knows to leave it alone but the newcomers like to taunt it. This was well written and ended perfectly. I look forward to reading more by Todd Brabander. Anyone who loves reading horror stories should check this one out, you won't be disappointed.
  • Three French Hens - A Christmas Collection on Jan. 30, 2012

    I received this from Library Thing. This was a great short story collection all based on the theme of Christmas. I actually loved the first two. The first is about a vampire preying on an elderly lady whom he will never forget. The second story is about a music competition with an excellent twist at the end of it. The third is about Santa and how he changes Darcy's view of him. I would definitely recommend this short story collection for those who are looking for a different twist to the typical Christmas stories.
  • Lowcountry Ghosts: Stories of Alice Flagg, Confederate Blockade Runners, and Haunted Beads on Feb. 06, 2012

    I'm so glad I won this from Library Thing. I love to read ghost stories and this is a nice set of three ghost stories set in South Carolina. This collection was well written and instantly grabbed the reader's attention. What makes the stories stand out, is that they are based on "true" accounts and have been passed down for generations. I look forward to reading more from Mrs Michelsohn. I would definitely recommend others give this a chance.
  • Spirits Rising on Feb. 15, 2012

    I won this from Library Thing. This was a great fast paced ghost or "spirit" story. I enjoyed the town being overrun by Vikings and other spirits all due to the fact that a teenager thought it would be cool to call them forward to help him and how they were put back where they belonged. This story left room for there to be more in the series. I wish they would be longer though. I definitely recommend this series to others.
  • Dreamwater on Feb. 15, 2012

    This was a wonderful collection of three short stories. I was delighted to win this from Library Thing. She is such a talented author, the reader will find themselves emerged with the characters with her details and descriptions. I wish these three stories would have been longer. I definitely recommend others give these a try, you won't be disappointed.
  • River Daughter and Other Stories on Feb. 15, 2012

    I won this from Library Thing and I have to say this collection of four stories did not disappoint. They all were well written and flowed nicely. The imagery was brilliant and descriptive. I felt like I was there with characters in the stories. My only complaint was I wished they were longer. I would definitely recommend others give this collection a go.
  • Tempest (#1 Destroyers Series) on Feb. 19, 2012

    I'm glad I won this from Library Thing. I wasn't sure what to think of it at first, then it pulled me in (no pun intended). This is a book recommended for young teens/adults, so keep that in mind if your an adult wanting to read this story. This story was well written and flowed nicely. I found the ending great and of course it leaves you hanging for book 2. I would recommend this story for those who have teens or have a little free time to read a different story.
  • The Village on June 10, 2012

    I enjoyed reading this dark twisted tale of an experiment gone bad. I often felt like I was there with the characters in the jungle battling the unknown creatures. I thought this was a well written story that flowed nicely. I read it in one setting, I couldn't put it down. I highly recommend others give this one a try. I won this from Library Thing and no compensation was given for a review.
  • Inside Evil on July 24, 2012

    I'm so glad I won this from Library Thing. Inside Evil has everything from suspense, mystery, the supernatural, friendship and revenge all thrown into one. Roberta finds herself seeing a woman in mirrors and thinking thoughts that aren't like her after she finds a student's body in the school hallway. Roberta finds out that the town of Ridgewood has a dark secret that has been kept for many many years and the evil has been awakened once again. This story kept me reading until the very end, I couldn't put it down. I definitely recommend this to others to read. I look forward to reading more by Geoffrey Wakeling.
