Review: One of Us is Lying by Karen M. McManus

Review: One of Us is Lying by Karen M. McManus

One of Us is Lying by is an intriguing mystery following four high school students after one of their fellow classmates dies during detention. This book reminds me of a darker version of the 80’s classic The Breakfast Club, which happens to also be the original inspiration for the story. Delivering a keep-you-guessing mystery while […]

Review: Honeymoon for One by Jennifer Peel

Review: Honeymoon for One by Jennifer Peel

Honeymoon for One by was originally part of a collaborative series with other authors, but was recently pulled and rereleased with new content and to stand on its own. Y’all I couldn’t be happier with it! This is a sweet, unconventional romance that brings the magic of the season to the forefront and will no […]

Audio Review: Holiday Spice by Samantha Chase

You know how you start a book and you think you know how itโ€™s going to go and then it hits a little harder than you thought it would? Yeah…thatโ€™s what happens every time I read a book. Chills and tears several times in this one – fair warning. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Ben Tanner is a bit […]

Audio Review: The Great Pursuit by Wendy Higgins

Audio Review: The Great Pursuit by Wendy Higgins

The Great Pursuit by is everything I could’ve asked for and more for the . It compliments The Great Hunt perfectly, shifting the hunt into a full-blown war. Paxton and Aerity are separated for much of the book, but that doesn’t detract from the love that was born in book one. In fact, I feel […]

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 […]

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, […]

Warcross by is the first in a sci-fi duology about the digital age of gaming. This isn’t the first book of its kind (Ready Player One people!), but it is unique in its own right and written specifically for the YA crowd. It asks some big questions. What happens when life is lived in virtual […]

Review: Island of Exiles by Erica Cameron

Review: Island of Exiles by Erica Cameron

Island of Exiles by is an addictive, high-stakes read. I found myself engrossed from page one. What makes it so addictive was the unique world-building and setting Cameron developed through the eyes of her main character Khya. It is unlike anything I’ve ever read! Khya is a warrior, put simply. She, like everyone else, puts […]
