  • Shooting Stars on March 25, 2012

    Shooting Stars by Leslie Hodgson wasn't anything like I thought it would be. I was expecting some sci-fi type novel. Instead I was pleasantly surprised to find what I would consider a fantasy novel. When I began reading I was immediately drawn in by the action and the characters. Stella was a very realistic teenage girl who isn't so sure of herself and needed constant reassurance. Issac was the typical teenage boy, thinking he can do anything. I enjoyed the relationship between the siblings and the bond that they shared. Added into their lives were mythical creatures like winged horses and dragons! I loved the twists and turns that came at every corner. This novel was so full of action and the unexpected that I could not set it down! Overall this book is a great read! I was sad at the ending, I felt that it ended rather abruptly. I hope that means that there is another novel in the works to wrap up all of the loose ends. If so, I will be reading it! I received this book for free in exchange for my honest review.

  • The Curse Girl on May 06, 2012

    A modern retelling of Beauty and the Beast, The Curse Girl has some twists and variations to the original story that keep you turning the pages! I devoured the book in one sitting and it was such a great book, I couldn’t put it down! I love retellings of fairy tales; I own many and have read many versions. Kate Avery Ellison’s is among one of the best I have read! It was refreshing and a unique spin on a classic tale! The characters are fun, interesting and relatable! I was pleasantly surprised by the depth of the emotions that were felt by the characters. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves fairytales, fantasy, or young adult books. I look forward to reading many more books from Kate Avery Ellison!
