    (no rating)
    A fun continuation of Shakespeare's Taming of the Shrew. Was Kate really tamed?

    Beautifully written fantasy.
  • Reflection on May 04, 2012

    It took me a little while to get into the rhythm of the story; however, once I was in, I was hooked. I read it every time I had a lull in my day so I was done in a few hours. I needed to know how it ended, even though I suspected it might leave me hanging. I like flawed characters and Heather's insecurities drew me in. Nick is unusual because I grew to like him as Heather got to know him. Not every character can change my mind. Both characters have some personal history that give them depth. Creed was another of my favorites. Actually, I liked all of the secondary characters. Also, (since it's in the book's synopsis I can say) trying to figure out what was reality was intriguing. I can't wait for the next book. I'd definitely recommend this to anyone looking to read this genre. I received a free copy of Reflection from Goodreads' Read It and Reap for review.
  • A Bed of Knives on July 12, 2012

    This book was edgy. That's what comes to mind when I think about it. It wasn't all roses and butterflies, but the real lives of four friends as they leave college and head into the world. It's one of those books that you would see from different perspectives depending on your age. My tweny-year-old self would have looked at the characters and their cholces much differently from my thirty or forty-year-old self. I'm not sure I liked the characters, but I respected their journeys and dedication to friendship. The cover would not have captured my interest so I am glad that I was given the opportunity to read this through Goodreads' We Love YA Group. I would definitely read more by this author. Thank you
