Smashwords book reviews by Stacey Wallace Benefiel
EyeLeash: A Blog Novel (teenage memoir)
on May 22, 2010
I sat down to read the first twenty pages or so of EYELEASH and ended up reading the entire novel. The blog/IM style it's written in helps keep up the pace-I had to know how everything between Jade and Novan turned out! I enjoyed the way the author used the nuances of things such as file names to complete the characterization. This added humor and humility to these young adults who, as they are prone to be, were full of teenage angst and confusion at times. At several points while reading EYELEASH I felt like I was experiencing a YA Bridget Jones' Diary.
Hush Money (Talent Chronicles)
on Aug. 06, 2010
I just finished Hush Money and am totally jonesing for the next book already! Loved this book. The main character, Joss, is snarky, strong, insecure, and protective-all things that make her a realistic heroine. I enjoyed her voice and also reading things from Dylan's (her crush) point of view. The back and forth between the two really kept the story moving. The action sequences were written well-easy to imagine and quite exciting! I can't wait to find out more about all of the characters and how they use their super powers. Great debut!
The Other Side of Life (Book #1, Cyberpunk Elven Trilogy)
on Aug. 03, 2011
Another fantastic, fun and thought-provoking read from Jess C. Scott. She's combined several elements seemlessly in one book - fantasy, social commentary, romance, technology, astrology and action/adventure. Jess has a wild imagination and her writing is clean. Even though I'm not the most tech-savvy or science-minded person, all of those components in the story were easy for me to understand. I recommend everyone take a look at The Other Side of Life and I look foward to book two, The Darkside of Life.

I read Red in one sitting and really enjoyed it. It had all the things that I like in a YA paranormal romance - a tough heroine, a swoonworthy boy, romance, action, and an interesting twist on a familiar story. What most surprised me was the attention to detail that Ms. Nolan paid the setting. A good portion of the book takes place in the woods and I constantly marvelled at the level of research she must have done to make all the orienteering and survivalist components believeable and correct. Well done!
