Review: After by S.K. Gregory

Review: After by S.K. Gregory

This review first appeared on YA Book Central. I love zombies. I never thought I’d say that. I’m not a horror reader, and in my opinion, zombies fall into that genre. But they also fall into the scifi genre which I happen to love. After by falls into the zombie category where it isn’t quite […]

Review: Skipping Forward by Bethany Wicker

Review: Skipping Forward by Bethany Wicker

This review first appeared on YA Book Central. Skipping Forward by is a standalone contemporary fantasy about a girl who can skip through time. This book surprised me in not being at all what I thought it would be. From the blurb, I expected an adventure romping through time. That was my fault. This book […]

Audio Review: The Lost Sisters by Holly Black

Audio Review: The Lost Sisters by Holly Black

The Lost Sisters by is a novella that is part of . It follows The Cruel Prince….well sort of. Told from Taryn’s point of view, this novella is part-apology, part-defense of Taryn falling in love with Locke. Y’all I loved this little novella! It is compelling and while I found myself hating Taryn a little […]

#MyTBRL Review: Twilight by Stephenie Meyer

I don’t even know how to begin this review. This isn’t the first time I’ve read ‘s Twilight. It isn’t even the second or third. I’ve read the countless times since I was first introduced to the series in the Fall of 2008. I credit Twilight with bringing me out of the dark ages (aka […]

Review: Brentwood’s Ward by Michelle Griep

Review: Brentwood’s Ward by Michelle Griep

Brentwood’s Ward by is the first in that combines mystery with a touch of romance. While the series itself is based on a real profession and location in London during the late 1700s to mid-1800s, the characters and story are pure fiction. I found myself engrossed at times, missing meals to finish the book. Nicholas […]

Review: Shock of Fate by D.L. Armillei

Review: Shock of Fate by D.L. Armillei

This review first appeared on Young Adult Book Central. Shock of Fate by is the first in the series. Aside from the gorgeous cover (y’all seriously, I’m drooling over here), the blurb hoooked me. Alternate realities/dimensions are a favorite of mine, and this one doesn’t disappoint. Vanessa Cross, Van for short, lives on Providence Island, […]
