Review: Seeker by Arwen Elys Dayton

Review: Seeker by Arwen Elys Dayton

Hmph….I’m not sure where to begin. There were aspects of Seeker that I loved then there were parts I just couldn’t overlook. Seeker tells the story of three friends who have trained a majority of their lives to become…well, Seekers. Though none of them really know what this means and won’t know until they take their oaths. When the […]

Mini-Review: Scarlet by Marissa Meyer

Mini-Review: Scarlet by Marissa Meyer

So I didn’t think it was possible, but I LOVED Scarlet even more than I did Cinder. This book picks up right where we last saw Cinder and the author does something that usually turns me off to series. She introduced not one, but three new main characters and POVs while keeping Cinder and Kai as well 😀 I […]

Review: Outlander by Diana Gabaldon

Review: Outlander by Diana Gabaldon

FYI: This is review will be more fangirling than reviewing… For those that don’t know me, I have a soft spot for historical fiction. I love books that take me back in time and show me life before electricity and iPhones and computers. I even like books that show these things but, you know, like […]

Review: The Last Orphans by N.W. Harris

Review: The Last Orphans by N.W. Harris

NOT at ALL what I expected!!! When I picked up The Last Orphans to read, I was expecting the typical young adult dystopian that I’ve come to know and love. But it was so much more! This story follows Shane Tucker and his friends at the start of an apocalyptic adventure. Animals are turning and killing the adults, […]

Mini-Review: Dear Mr. Knightley by Katherine Reay

Oh wow! It’s not often that a book makes me sigh aloud at its ending, but this one did! Dear Mr. Knightley is a story about finding hope in our darkest time, overcoming our own weaknesses and stepping out of your comfort zone. Samantha Moore is a twenty-three year old foster kid turned adult who accepts a […]
