I am big fan of A.G. Howard’s Splintered Series. When I saw The Architect of Song was now available on audiobook I bought it and started listening to it right then. I was not disappointed by this audiobook. I really enjoy a good audiobook that can distract me from the frustrations of say traffic while I am driving in my car. It is definitely the type of audiobook that is a great escape from the monotony of my day. The Architect of Song is a gothic romance that swept me right up into the story and I enjoyed every minute… Read more »

I admit the first time I read The Mediator series I was not officially a teen but I was close enough to it. I freaking loved this series. I love Suze and Jesse. I love the Suze and her wacky ghost adventures. I can remember when the sixth book came out, my friend and I went to the book store that day. Then I proceeded to re-read the entire series because I wanted it all fresh when I got to what I thought would be the last book in one weekend. When I saw there would basically be a reunion… 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 »

[ARC Review] Alive by Chandler Baker

I liked the beginning of this book but I thought the end fell flat and just fizzled out. I liked the beginning, a story about a girl that gets a heart transplant and falls for the new guy at school because he makes the pain in her chest go away. Then there the creepy visions, mind boggling pain that only came at certain times of day, and the feeling that she is being followed. I thought this book was to be romantic and creepy. The tag line says “Stella’s heart is poisoned.” I am expecting some major creepiness like with… Read more »

[ARC Review] Sisters of Blood and Spirit by Kady Cross

I liked this book just okay. It was an entertaining read full of action and spooky times. It was kind of slow in parts and easy to put down. It was one those read’s that I am glad I read but it didn’t keep me riveting to my chair wondering what would happen next. Just as they compare themselves to the Scooby Gang, the story was pretty much like an episode of Scooby Doo, you can watch knowing the good guys will win in the end so you feel pretty safe letting Scooby Do run in the background while you… Read more »

[ARC Review] Shutter by Courtney Alameda

Man, I’m having so much trouble reviewing this book. Seriously. On the one hand, if, by merits of a young adult urban fantasy I would have to give it way more stars. Unfortunately, the author felt the need to shoehorn literary characters into the book for no real reason. It’s not like they couldn’t have had the same elements including the goddamn ancient assassins without slapping the names Helsing and Stoker et al upon it. Doing that just makes it awful and cheap and campy. Don’t ruin a good thing by shoving literary and mythological references into things that don’t… Read more »

[Audiobook Reveiw] Famous Last Words by Katie Alender

Keeping in the spirit of all things that go bump in this month, I decided to pick up another book featuring ghosts and psycho killers. I may have mentioned before that I am big fan of the slasher style YA mystery. I thought Famous Last Words was going to make the list of my favorites but unfortunately, I think this book is just going to end up on my list of so so YA horror. Why? Because the nicest thing I can say about Famous Last Words is I didn’t hate it. Famous Last Words is a book that I… Read more »

[Review] The Girl From the Well

I don’t even know what I’m supposed to say about this book. On one hand we have a vengeful ghost of legend named Okiku, going with the same mold as the other girl in the well you’re probably thinking of. You know, the one from The Ring. Only, instead of being utterly frightening, she just wanders around and stares at things and has fits about the number nine. She is supposed to be a vengeful spirit, yet, after awhile she is content to wander around after the main characters like a ghostly guard dog. I found myself agonizingly waiting for… Read more »

[Review] Sea of Shadows by Kelley Armstrong

Let me start this review off by saying that I am a huge Kelley Armstrong fangirl.  I have been a fan since I first read Bitten many moons ago.  That being said, I don’t think Sea of Shadows will go up there as my favorite Kelley Armstrong book of all time.  I liked Sea Shadows well enough, but I didn’t love it.  This book had action, good world building, and of course a little kissing.  All the things that should make me love it, but it in the end it was just a decent read. Sea of Shadows is Kelley… Read more »

[Review] The Bone Doll’s Twin by Lynn Flewelling

It’s rare to come across an Epic Fantasy novel that breaks out of the Tolkien mold. (Seriously, there wasn’t even one drinking song (that’s a win for everyone) and forget Elves and Dwarves.) The Bone Doll’s Twin not only breaks the mold, but manages to create something unique and new. I imagine that this book is what you would get if Game of Thrones and Wuthering Heights had a lovechild. Described by the author as “Gothic Fantasy,” the story revolves around a princess whose very gender has to be hidden because of her royal blood and the King’s obsession with… Read more »
