- Next Move, You're Dead
on March 27, 2011
I spend a lot of time reading and I've always been a fan of murder mysteries and Next Move,You're Dead was a great read.It held my attention from the first paragraph until the last and I found myself unable to stop reading because I was so interested to see what would happen next.I'm very much looking forward to reading what Ms.Barton comes up with next.I'm sure it will be as enjoyable to read as Next Move,You're Dead was.
- Temperature: Dead and Rising
on March 31, 2011
I have just finished reading Temperature: Dead and Rising by Adam Santo and I found it to be an enjoyable read from start to finish.I am guaranteed to like any book that has zombies in it because I am a huge fan of any book in the horror as well as the fantasy and supernatural genres.Temperature: Dead Rising was well written and very descriptive which is why I give it 5 stars.
- Love Immortal
on April 06, 2011
I've just finished reading Love Immortal and found it intriguing.The story of Jewell and Collin and how much they loved each other even though they had only known each other for a short time.Besides being a love story there was also suspense and a plot line that had to do with the Holy Grail.Parts of Love Immortal were similar to Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code.I give Love Immortal five stars for being a captivating and intriguing read.
- Bloodbound: Deluxe Edition
on April 08, 2011
I thoroughly enjoyed reading Bloodbound because it isn't a typical book about vampires.The vampires in Bloodbound feel real emotions such as love,anger,and pain.I also liked that the couple in the story were two men instead of the usual vampire and human woman combination.Chase Erwin couldn't have done anything to make this a more enjoyable read which is why I give it 5 stars.
- Sons of Sin
on April 11, 2011
Sons of Sin started out interesting and fast-paced but it slowed down quickly and I was more than a little confused with the main character's sudden change from a woman into a man.It was completely unexpected. I did like that a good part of the book took place in Japan because there aren't many novels that use Japan as a backdrop to whatever story they are telling.I give Sons of Sin 3 stars because while it was a bit confusing and hard to follow it was very well written
- Josie's Thorn
on April 12, 2011
Josie's Thorn started off fast paced and didn't slow down at all through the book.The story was filled with suspense and mystery and I couldn't get enough of the incredible chemistry between Josie and Jacob.I cheered when they finally gave in to their love for each other and put aside all of the years of hurt and anger between them to raise their son as a family.Josie's Thorn gets 5 stars from me for having such believable characters,plenty of suspense,and a faithful animal companion named Bo.
on April 14, 2011
It was a pleasure to read Twenty Somewhere by Kristan Hoffman.I really identified with each of the women in her book because I went through some of the same things as the characters did for instance, not knowing what I wanted to do with my life and still living at home.Each character, both male and female was completely real and if they were actual people I could definitely see myself being friends with each of them.For all of the reasons above, I give Twenty Somewhere by Kristan Hoffman a 5 star review.
- Hush Money (Talent Chronicles)
on April 15, 2011
I really enjoyed reading Hush Money because I was a lot like Joss when I was in high school,doing everything possible to be invisible and to remain under the radar of the bullies but I didn't have the power to move things with just my mind and a flick of my finger.I was happy that Joss found a friend in Kat and the other girls who she was able to be herself with towards the end of the book.Throughout the book I was rooting for Joss and Dylan to get together and for Marco and Jeff to finally get exactly what they deserved.
- Ice Blue
on April 18, 2011
Ice Blue was an excellent book that has plenty of suspense.I enjoyed every part of it and I was very surprised when the murderer was finally revealed.Emma Jameson did an excellent job writing this book.
- After Eden (Fallen Angels, Book 1)
on May 28, 2011
Author Katherine Pine did an excellent job writing After Eden (Fallen Angels,Book 1) and I am very much looking forward to reading the next volume because I loved each character especially Oz and all of his snarkiness and sarcastic comments.I also enjoyed the character Devi as well and can't wait to see where Katherine Pine takes the story next.
- Anathema (Causal Enchantment, #1)
on June 17, 2011
Anathema was a great book with tons of excitement and suspense that had me hooked.My favorite character was Sofie because I was never able to figure out whether she was a good guy or bad guy.The excerpt from the next book was a great teaser and I cannot wait to see what K.A. Tucker has planned next for each of the characters.
- Cowboys and Olympians
on June 19, 2011
I thought this book was great.I enjoyed the storyline very much and the way Katie and Leo's relationship evolved couldn't have been written any better.I was also happy to see the character of Katie change from a spoiled rich girl into a more humble,caring person.
- Spoon-fed Addiction
on June 19, 2011
Spoon-fed addiction told the story of Adirian's last day alive.It was dark and at times disturbing but worth taking the time to read.I thought it was a very true to life depiction of the life of a drug dealer.
- Nature of the Beast
on June 23, 2011
Nature of the beast by Jodi Langston is a well written book with equal amounts of romance and suspense.I enjoyed each of the characters particularly Angie and Kathy for being two strong female characters who weren't afraid to fight for what they wanted.Looking forward to reading the next book featuring Nick Dempsey.
- Uncommon Magic
on June 25, 2011
I thoroughly enjoyed Uncommon Magic.The storyline was great and this is a book that will appeal to all lovers of the fantasy genre, both teens and adults alike.Michelle Scott definitely knows how to write a thrilling and captivating story.
- Blood Sisters
on June 29, 2011
Blood Sisters by Michelle Scott is an enjoyable read and I thought the character of Starla was excellent.The saying the grass is greener on the other side definitely applies to Starla's situation.Blood Sisters was a good and highly enjoyable read that I would recommend to anyone who enjoys YA fantasy.
- Murder Stalks
on July 04, 2011
Murder Stalks is a great suspense filled novel that kept me guessing nearly until the end.I hope that author Sara Thacker writes more novels featuring Marissa and Tony Santos because both were fantastic characters.I loved the chemistry between them.
- The Dying God & Other Stories
on July 07, 2011
Having the chance to read S.M. Carriere's collection of short stories again reminded me how much I enjoyed each story the first time I read it.
- Hunter's Choice
on July 15, 2011
This was a great short story and I enjoyed it very much.I'll definitely be reading more of Shiloh Walker's books in the future.
- Sojourner (Sojourner Series Book 1)
on July 21, 2011
I thought the plot was intriguing and well written.I also thought that the author's variation of an angel was great.I found the way Lev and Elizabeth interacted reminded me a bit of how the main characters of the Twilight series interacted.I look forward to reading the other books in this series very much.
- Sleepers - The Swarm Trilogy, Book 1
on July 26, 2011
Sleepers by Megg Jensen is another fabulous book and a great start to her new series.I liked the character of Lianne just as much as the character of Reychel from The Cloud Prophet trilogy but for much different reasons.The character of Lianne was very spunky and full of fire.I was surprised that Kellan turned out the way he did but at the same time I was glad that Lianne still ended up with the person she loved.
- Dark Matter Heart
on July 26, 2011
While I thought the murders that were taking place in the background of the story was a smart move on the author's part I was confused as to whether Cor was a vampire or if he just suffered from severe allergies.I think I would have enjoyed the story a little more if the main character wasn't a vampire.
- Shelter (Blood Haze: Book One)
on Aug. 07, 2011
I found this book to be a very enjoyable read and I can bet that anyone who is a fan of the Twilight series will fall in love with the Blood Haze series by Tara Shuler.The cliffhanger at the end of the book worked, I'm eager to read the next book in the series so that I can find out what happens to Kai.
- Scary Mary
on Aug. 12, 2011
Scary Mary definitely lives up to the title and I loved all of Mary's comebacks and sarcastic remarks.This is a book that I'd recommend to anyone who enjoys a good haunted house story and to fans of the paranormal genre.
- There's A Killer Lurking At Every Curb
on Aug. 25, 2011
Travis Ford has created a good storyline with interesting characters but the amount of spelling and grammar errors took too much away from the story itself.
- Fourteen Days Later
on Sep. 22, 2011
I enjoyed this book very much.The evolution of the character Helen throughout the book was great.Author Sibel Hodge did a really good job of creating engaging characters and a fun storyline.
- My Perfect Wedding
on Sep. 22, 2011
This is yet another fun read by Sibel Hodge.I enjoyed seeing where the author would take the character Helen after 14 Days Later.Some of the situations Helen gets herself into are hilarious and if you are a fan of chick-lit I recommend that you read both 14 days later and my perfect wedding by Sibel Hodge.
on Jan. 12, 2012
I enjoyed reading Compulsion very much. I finished it in about 3 hours. I found all of the characters to be engaging and interesting particularly Lily. I understood why she got angry with Mason but when she finally forgave him I cheered. Dax and his brother were so wicked but they served their purpose of making the story exciting for the reader. I am seriously hoping that there will be a sequel so I can get more of Mason and the rest of the Moon clan. I also want to see what Dax has planned next.
- Blood of a Red Rose
on May 07, 2012
While I did enjoy reading this book I found myself liking the main character less and less as the book progressed. However, Tish Thawer's writing style has grown considerably stronger since the first book in this series. I liked how she wrote the book with each chapter from a different character's perspective. That being said, I am eager to see what Tish Thawer has in store for Meredith and Jeremy in the final book of the Rose trilogy.
