  • Enchantment (The Channie Series Book One) on Nov. 01, 2011

    Enchantment by Charlotte Abel Reading this story it reminded me of young love and the wanting and dreaming of meeting your very own Prince Charming. This is one of those stories that you see the story unfolding and you turn every page to make sure it’s going to happen. The writing is great, easy to read, words flow so you just keep reading till you reach the end. The story begins with Channie (Enchantment) moving to a new city with her family, her father is on the run from a very powerful family, he owes them a huge gambling debt, this family is well known and will not just want money they may even kill Channie’s (Enchantment) family to get revenge on her father. Starting at a new school is hard enough but to be living around non magic humans is a whole other complication. Channie (Enchantment) meets Josh and their amazing almost fairy tale story begins. All I can say is this book is well written its about love, magic, awful parents, dreams, hopes and its touching funny and you just want the best for Channie and Josh. I will be keeping an eye out for a sequel. If you’re looking for a heart warming read this is the book to read. Charlotte Abel is an amazing author/storyteller.
  • Through the Third Eye; Book 1 of Third Eye Trilogy on Dec. 18, 2011

    Through the Third Eye by Lynn Boston This is the first book in the Third Eye Trilogy; I would say this would be classified as Mystery/thriller/Suspense. The story is told in the third person but the main points of view are by the two main characters Shali and Clay. The writing is good, I typically don’t read too many books in this genre as the historical part is not one of my favourites, but it sure did open my eyes to new possibilities. There is a lot going on in this book, past life regression, treasure hunters, mystery, suspense and the historical part of the book ends up fascinating to me. Even though you know this book is fiction the amount of work the author had to research for this book is amazing. Not to write any spoilers I would say briefly this is a book about two people searching for ancient documents and using any means they can to find them. As Treasure Hunters Clay believes this is The Big One....but they are people out there who do not want these ancient documents found, as it could change the world. The book is interesting and a new concept to me I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a well thought out suspense/thriller /mystery novel. If you were a fan of books like the Da Vinci Code this book is right up your alley.
  • Mobster's Girl on Sep. 22, 2012

    Mobster's Girl by Amy Rachiele So this is the first book I’ve read by Amy Rachiele, her writing was easy to read, plot and character development was well written, and the story flowed really well. I picked up this book this afternoon and finished it in one sitting with a few cups of coffee. Mobster’s Girl is about a young woman name Megan who all the sudden notices Antonio is looking at her. Antonio is tall dark and handsome and a bit dangerous young, he is also from a very well off and powerful family in their neighborhood. The title of this book says it all. Antonio remembers meeting Megan when he was 5 years old and is fascinated with her, but years ago he and his friends were warned by his father not to go near her. But you know what happens when parents tell you not to do something…. They talk ………….and Antonio knows he want Megan to be his. Megan knows her parents won’t approve but that doesn’t stop her, she gets butterflies when he smiles at her. Mobster’s Girl is about romance, coming of age, and finding out sometimes people are not always what they appear. I really enjoyed Megan and Antonio’s love story and cannot wait to read more. I have to thank Amy Rachiele for listing her book in our group We ♥ YA Books, and offering our members copies to review so thank you. I cannot wait to read the next book in this series Awakening the Mobster which I just found out was released 2 weeks ago. I have rated Mobster’s Girl a 4 star rating and if I could I would give 4.5 stars.
