Am very much enjoying reading everything I can. I downloaded a bunch of books durning Smashwords Summer/Winter Sale and have been slowly working my way through the pile. I will leave a review for each book that I downloaded that was generously given away by the authors.
Thank you authors for the opportunity and privilege to read your work!
I don't know why, but every one of your books crashes in Adobe, I am unable to read any your work. I have even tried deleting and re-downloading, nothing works. It's a shame, I would love to read your work.

I thought this was a very nice short story, I really enjoyed reading it, I wish it was longer. I would like to see more from this author.
I could have sworn I left a review here, anyway. I thought the story line was very good and really liked the characters and the way they interacted. I think the author is off to good start but needs a little more practice.
What really took away from the story for me were typos, there were just too many to make the story enjoyable. There were also a couple of areas that felt like they were missing something, a paragraph or sentence.
I really feel that this author will do better with time.
I thought this book was fantastic. I really enjoyed the characters and the story itself was great. I found myself a few times not being able to put it down. I can't wait to read some of the other books I have from this author.
I LOVED this book. This is a true fantasy story. I loved the way the author tells the tale of two sisters born into sorcery. There is Gwyneth who is the Queen of the Fairy Realm. She is loving, kind and good, everything a Good Fairy should be. She loves and watches over her fairies. On the other hand you have Guenevere, who is the true source of evil. She is jealous of her good sister and covets what she has. The evil Guenevere is determined to have Excalibur for herself. The way the author blends the whole story together is amazing and her attention to detail is fantastic. You truly feel like you are there in the fairy lands. This would be a wonderful story to share with a young daughter. I would love for the author to write more fantasies like this one. Great job and thank you for such a wonderful story!
Just finished reading "Heart of Gold". I did not enjoy this book at all. To me there was nothing hard-boiled to it. I thought it was slow and just seemed to drag on, not much to the story line to keep the reader interested. The characters are bland, even the main characters and the plot is boring and narrow minded. When it did finally come to a conclusion (which happened in one chapter) it seemed like it ended mid-sentence, I thought I missed a page. I think the only thing I can say good about this book is that there were only a handful of typos.
I had to basically force myself to finish this one, for sure it's going to get added to the "did not like" pile. Sorry Mr. Smith.
I really do like mystery/detective stories. I have to say, I really did enjoy this book. I thought the main character was delightful and very likeable. The plot was great and it flowed nicely throughout the book, I was intrigued until the end. The story was original and nicely thought out. I do have to say though, I really liked the original cover better than this one. Ms. James, you did a wonderful job, keep up the great work and I look forward to reading more of your writings.
I throughly enjoyed this book. I found the main character very likable and her sense of humor was extremely cute. This book was a pleasant change from your typical fantasy with a very original idea.
On another note like the others have said, it seemed as though a few things weren't explained that needed explanation and a few parts were a little confusing. That said I think all in all this was a fantastic book and great for young audiences.
I will be reading her next book Limerick with great expectations. I think this author did a great job on her first novel and am looking forward to reading her second. I feel this author will only impress us more with each book she writes. Keep up the great work Ms. Spencer you have a winner on your hands.
Fantastic job Ms. Spencer! I really enjoyed this book, the writing flowed beautifully. The story line picked up right where Shimmerspell left off. Things that weren't explained in Shimmerspell were revealed in Limerick. I think Ms. Spencer's writing has no other direction to go but up, I can't wait to read the next book in her "Faerie Tale Girl" series.
I have to admit, I wasn't happy about the ending, the book just came to an abrupt halt. It had me looking for the next chapter. The ending left a lot of questions unanswered, but I have a feeling that is exactly what Ms. Spencer had in mind. I'm guessing that she is setting us up for the next book in this series.
I also love that Ms. Spencer knows how to proof read, no typos, great editing job. I really admire her book covers too they are very appealing, whoever creates her book covers does exquisite work.
