The Difference Between Young Adult and New Adult…and Why It’s Important

The Difference Between Young Adult and New Adult…and Why It’s Important

January 22, 2018 Features 5

In the last couple of years, a new genre has started to take root, and in the last year I’ve noticed that it is really becoming popular: New Adult. This isn’t the first time I’ve addressed this. I wrote a post about it a couple of years ago. What is New Adult? I defined it as a subgenre involving characters aged 16-30, and I think that is fairly accurate. New Adult typically involves characters that are entering college or have just finished college and are dealing with adult issues such as committed relationships, bills, finding a house/job, etc. BUT typically… Read more »

Happy Saturday y’all! This week was one of those weeks where it was too cold to go out which means it was perfect reading weather. About two years ago (almost 3 now),  I read Spelled by and while it was just an okay read, the ending left me intrigued and wanting more. So imagine my happy surprise when the book turned into a trilogy called . I highly recommend this to those that enjoy fairy tale retellings, urban fantasy, and snark….lots of snark! This review is hard to write because while I really enjoyed Wanted by , I was also really lost through the… Read more »

Review: Sugarplum Way by Debbie Mason

Review: Sugarplum Way by Debbie Mason

January 19, 2018 Reviews 0

I honestly don’t know where to start. Up to this point, every book by I’ve really enjoyed. I enjoy the small town setting, the life-like characters and their banter, and the romance. Each of her couples are unique, playing off each other’s strengths and the chemistry is usually off the charts. However I felt like all of that was lacking in Sugarplum Way.  Julia is one of my favorite female characters in so I was really excited to see her story. I mean she’s a bookaholic, how could I not love and identify with her?! Introverted, quirky, and shy, Julia is me… Read more »

Review: The Scourge by A.G. Henley

I forgot how much I love The Scourge by ! I picked up the audiobook to listen to last week and I could not stop listening. I binged it in one day and it was perfection. I first read The Scourge back in 2014 around the time the second book of the series hit shelves. I devoured everything from the series then and waited for the third book. However I somehow missed the release and because it had been so long I wanted to reread. I’m SO glad I did. The premise of the book is simple. Set in the distant future, people living… Read more »

Review: Poison’s Cage by Breeana Shields

Review: Poison’s Cage by Breeana Shields

January 15, 2018 Reviews 0

Brilliant!! Utterly brilliant! Seriously I have no other words to describe this book. Poison’s Cage by is the fantastic conclusion to Marinda’s story that began in Poison’s Kiss. Full of intrigue, politics, and crisis of conscience, readers will not want to set this book down until the final page. I just thought I loved the first book, it doesn’t even compare to my feelings after finishing its sequel. Picking up a few months after the end of Poison’s Kiss, Marinda is back with Gita and heading to the Naga’s hideout. She is determined to bring the Naga down and bravely volunteers to be a spy… Read more »
