[Review] Unknown by Wendy Higgins

There is something truly terrifying about an apocalypse setting that scares and fascinates me at the same time.  I think Wendy Higgins did a good job of building a truly scary world in Unknown.  I finished this book in two days.  I only put it down to sleep.  Even when I put the book down I still kept think about how frightening this book actually was.     Unknown starts out like any other contemporary love story.  A girl grows up with her brother and his best friend.  Then the brother’s best friend becomes her friend as well.  Of course,… Read more »

I just have to say Defending Taylor didn’t disappoint. I read this book in one day. It is one of those short breezy books that grab you and don’t let go until the end.       I once heard someone I think it was another adult, say they didn’t like read because the parents are never around or they look stupid. I didn’t know what to say to that because it is true the parents are hardly ever around in YA. You know what I say now: so what. Even in Gilmore Girls Rory had to go off on… Read more »

First off I have to say, oh man, this book was good.  A coworker of mine asked me what this book was about the other day.  I said it was a coming of age with some romance thrown in.  She said it sounded predictable.  You know what that is not bad thing.  I like that this book was predictable and I knew that no matter what happened in between the heroine was going to make it through. The Problem With Forever is about a girl named Mallory and Mallory has had really tragic past.  She was a foster kid who… Read more »

I liked this book well enough. I was so excited to read this book that I think I held it up to something it wasn’t in my head. I liked the story but I was also a little disappointed by it. I was expecting something really spooky. The story was a little spooky and a lot of confusion. There were plot twists left and right in this book. Sometimes it was hard to keep up with it all. Best thing I can compare my reaction to reading Blood and Salt, is when I watched the movie Oculus. I was looking… Read more »

I didn’t gobble this book up in one sitting like I thought I would but slowly savored it over a few days. Why? Because I never wanted to let go of the story. I think this book is my favorite of the series. I liked the first three books but they were about spoiled, naïve, and broody kids that had still had a lot of growing up to do. This book is about change. Not just change in the direction of the of the overall story but change with the characters themselves. I loved that this book above all the… Read more »

It is official I am addicted to the stories of the men and women the Marked Men series. It was this book that sealed the deal. I liked Rule and Jet but, Oh Man, I really liked Rome. Rome is a moody ex-soldier trying to find a place for himself in civilian life. Cora is colorful, a loud mouth, and just wants to find her happily ever after. I liked this book so much because while it was moody and both characters could be jerks. I liked that were “perfectly imperfect” together.   Rome is Rule’s brother from book one… Read more »

  I think this book has potential to become a favorite but right now it was good and liked it well enough. I am curious for more. I think this story spent way too much time on the instalust and not enough time explaining what was going on. I was confused about everything except that Piper got all hot and gooey every time Zane was around. I mean I would have liked more explained about the Reaper war that is coming. I would have actually liked a training montage. I think this story is broken up into short volumes so… Read more »

I feel like this book has been on the top of to read pile for a while now. I don’t know why I didn’t pick it up. I am glad I did because in the end I liked it and I know there will be more men from the Marked series in my future.     Rule was a little hard for me to get into at first but I think that was because I picked up this book trying to get over a book hangover from the book I had just read. Once I got into this book and… Read more »

I read this book in one day because I liked it so much. I liked the humor, the heart break and, of course, the sizzling chemistry this book has to offer. I like when big sexy confident athletes give the babbling sometimes socially awkward girl a chance. There is something to be said for a guy that smiles and laughs when a girl is babbling about charming serial killers in the first five minutes of meeting him. I like a guy that will jump through some major hoops like writing a love poem, taking a sexy pic on red velvet… Read more »

[Audiobook Review] Under Different Stars by Amy A. Bartol

I started listening to this audiobook one day at work. I became so engrossed in the story that I literally could not put this book down. I came home and kept right on listening to this book instead of turning on the TV. For me, this book was so entrancing that I could not stop until I had listened to the very last sentence. Under Different Stars opens with Kricket working and living under the radar because she ran away from foster care. Then one day her life changes forever when men from another world start coming after her. They… Read more »
