Book Review: Winter Queen by Amber Argyle @amberargyle

On October 2, 2013, Posted by , In 5 Stars,Book Review, With No Comments

Review Winter Queen is stunning in that it is so raw.  It holds nothing back.  There is blood and death, violence and despair.  It shows people at their best and worst.  Individuals bent on power and sacrifice for others.  It’s not often I see that in a book, and when I…

Review If you’re a geek and a Douglass Adams fan, you’re probably going to love this book.  Every notation I made in the book was some short hand of me laughing.  I made comments about laughing so hard I was in tears or laughing so hard I was wheezing.  The…

Book Review: Operation Earth by Maria Hammarblad @mariahammarblad

On August 15, 2013, Posted by , In 5 Stars,Book Review, With No Comments

Review The book starts out pretty well.  I think it could have started out better.  It seemed to almost portray the overtaking of earth through the eyes of someone in shock.  No real fear, panic or driving to action.  The main character is very level headed, which has its good…

Book Review: King Hall by Scarlett Dawn

Review The book has a strand of naughty humor woven throughout it that popped up when you least expected it. The book does a good job at evoking emotional responses from the reader, any emotional response.  The author isn’t too picky.  Laughter, emotional pain, embarrassment, you name it.  Oh, there…

Book Review: The Beckoning of Beautiful Things by Calinda B

On August 5, 2013, Posted by , In 5 Stars,Book Review, With 4 Comments

So, recently, I’ve become a member of Calinda’s street team, and I realized that while I had reviewed her book a while ago (back in April according to Goodreads), I never posted it to my blog.  So, here I am.  I highly encourage checking out this book.  It was a…

Book Blogger Fair: Reviews of Not the Norm & Unmasked Alloy by Becca Campbell

Not the Norm I loved this story.  It’s gripping, intense, and very different.  It incorporates classic themes, and puts a new spin on them.  The idea that we can make people perfect.  Ostracizing and destroying that which is different.  These are classics, and I loved how the author utilized them…

Book Review: Wanted: One Ghost by Loni Lynne

On July 15, 2013, Posted by , In 5 Stars,Book Review, With 38 Comments

Review Wanted: One Ghost is a fun, enjoyable, well-written fiction which is kind of goofy and filled with irony while mixing mystery, danger, angst, and the best of ghost stories and investigations.  Growing up, I always loved a good ghost story.  I remember quite a few nights staying up at…

Review: Vaempires: Revolution by Thomas Winship @vaempires

Review I’m going to take a deep, hopefully calming breath here and try to come down off this agitated high I’m on that makes me absolutely incapable of sitting, typing, or editing.  I can’t seem to decide on a book to read and though I got my book back from…

Review: Growing Disenchantments by K. D. Berry @kevinberryxxx

On June 5, 2013, Posted by , In 5 Stars,Book Review, With No Comments

Review Of all the books I’ve read of late, I don’t think I’ve read one with a more misleading cover.  Upon first glance, this cover, which looks like it was made by a five year old, didn’t leave the best taste in my mouth. When I got the request for…
