Smashwords book reviews by Namine Mai
- Replay (YA Paranormal)
on July 24, 2011
I won this copy from Mission to Read you can read about it in this post.
I really enjoyed this book. But I want to start at the beginning. I really hated the beginning, Kelsee Lewis was a horrendous brat at the start of the book. The first 60 pages were frustrating, I hated Kelsee she was a spoiled rich kid who only cared about herself. She made her mother out to be a horrible person but her mother went through so much.
And then, it just got better. Like WAY better, it got interesting. The characters got depth and the story just grew. I am kinda sad the book was so short. Kelsee really grew up and accept responsibility. I kinda wish this book was a series, but it's not :(
I would definitely read another book by Keira Lea
P.S. oh I find it really intriguing that the characters name is Kelsee Lewis and the author is Keira Lea. And I love the sound of Keira Lea it flows so nicely.

I love twitter for many reasons. One being occasionally there are amazing tweets out there that let you know about an awesome author who is offering up their book free for a period of time.
Margeaux Laurent participated in Good Choice Reading's
She wrote a short story and her a coupon to buy her book on Smashwords.
Spellbound: The Awakening of Aislin Collins by Margeaux Laurent
Published March 14th 2011 by iUniverse, Incorporated
First thoughts when I finished the book was GAHHHHHHH I Hate books!! :) Really I hate cliffhangers, man was this a good one!
Aislin (pronounced (Ash Leeng) in Ireland, but in the Colonies her family and friends pronounce her name as (Aze-lyn), (the "aze" rhyming with maze)) is a fantastic main character.
I so enjoyed this story so much I don't even know how to review it. When thing I greatly liked that all vampire books and shows are missing is periods! Yup I said it... girls have monthly periods and it's always a vampire guy failing in love with a girl. And this is the first book that has even brooched that subject.
Oh and I simply love her cat and it's reference to Faeries! Happy Reading!
- Anathema - Cloud Prophet Trilogy, Book 1
on Nov. 28, 2011
Thank goodness for twitter, I found this book free through twitter on Amazon Kindle. And while once again I don't have a kindle, I have the app on my phone and can read away. Which is semi a bad thing as my phone can be out at work.
So a couple mornings ago I found out about Anathema. Read the synopsis out-loud to a fellow co-worker who followed suit and immediately downloaded!
The synopsis was true, this definitely was a good read! I love the cover her eyes are perfect. I also enjoyed how some things were very prominent in the slaves lives. For example their shaved heads.
Ivy and Mark were a surprise I didn't expect any of that. Once I figured out the truth behind Ivy, I am surprised by her patience and her cunningness. Tiana was my favorite character. and read it!
