Below are the books that I have reviewed
Lacrimosa by Christine Fonseca
"It is in a sense a love story, but overall deals with a greater battle between two worlds, Heaven and Hell. You also get to see how real friendship comes to play."
Inferno by Dan Brown
"Wow! Where do I begin with this review? This book exceeded all of my expectations hands down! Having read Dan Brown’s previous novels, The Da Vinci Code, Angels and Demons, and The Lost Symbol, I could not wait to dive into Inferno. I was excited to see where Robert Langdon would take us to this time around and I was not disappointed at all."
The Girl In The Clockwork Collar by Kady Cross
"I can honestly say that I enjoyed this book even though I had never read the first one. It was easy enough to understand due to Cross’ amazing writing capabilities....I found that the more I read, the more I wanted to keep reading. This book got better the further on you read and by the time I got to the end I was hoping for more. Thank goodness there is a third one!"
Pretty Little Liars by Sara Shepard
"Sara Shepard is an amazing writer. The book is read with such ease, the storyline is simple to follow. I could hardly put it down. And when I wasn’t reading it, I was thinking about it, wondering what would happen next."
Flawless by Sara Shepard
"I found the story-line of this book was wonderful. Each character kept adding to the main problem leading towards the ending where they thought they had figured out who A was, but all four were shocked to learn the truth..."
The Girl In The Steel Corset by Kady Cross
"Cross has a way of explaining things when the timing is perfect, and you find that some of the characters are more intertwined than you first think."
Evermore by Alyson Noel
"even though I had already read it, I still found that every time I had to put the book down I just wanted to pick it up again and see what was going to happen next! Alyson Noel is one of my favourite authors. She has this way of writing that reels you in and keeps you there. Her rich descriptions make you feel as though you are a part of it."
Shade by Jeri Smith-Ready
"As soon as I began reading Shade, I was immediately drawn into Aura’s world. How devastating would it be to not only lose who you thought was the love of your life, but to continue to see him as a ghost every day, but not be able to touch him?"
Four Summoner's Tales by Kelley Armstrong, Christopher Golden, David Liss, and Jonathan Maberry
"The stories themselves are short, but powerful. And it is very interesting to see just how different a person can make a story based on one premise. Each story is so unique and so unexpected. I never imagined the course these stories would take."
Horizon by Alyson Noel
"I can honestly say this final book did not disappoint. It was full of secrets, suspense, mystery and magic. The first three books, Fated, Echo, and Mystic, set you up for what will happen in the Horizon, the final chapter of either Daire Santos life or the life of all of the Richters. "
The Storyteller by Jodi Picoult
"It was one of the most powerful stories I have ever read."
Radiance by Alyson Noel
"Her character development and rich descriptions bring you right into the book, Noel never fails to deliver in making you feel like you are right there, experiencing it all with them."
Shimmer by Alyson Noel
"As she continues with her soul catching she learns to overcome a lot of her fears. She realizes that most of them are just figments in her mind, and if she believes strongly enough then she can overcome them and the obstacles she faces. She just needs to stay strong."
Dreamland by Alyson Noel
"I find myself continually turning pages to see what Riley is going to do next, or what is going to happen to her now that she has found herself in another unpredictable situation."
Whisper by Alyson Noel
"Noel has Riley face her issues, especially body image issues, which many young girls struggle with and can relate to. Noel very subtly, yet effectively, helps the reader understand that there is more than what meets the eye."
Divergent by Veronica Roth
"It was amazing! The plot is fast-paced and unpredictable.....this story starts out as a coming of age book, where Beatrice (Tris) has to make a big decision at the young age of sixteen that will affect the rest of her life."
Insurgent by Veronica Roth
"Roth has a way of writing that makes you wonder if what is happening at that moment is the truth, or if there is something hidden. Some of her characters bring forth surprising secrets of their own and we are left wondering who we can trust. Loyalties are challenged.....There are so many possibilities that you are kept on the edge of your seat."
Allegiant by Veronica Roth
"What if everything you believed in and the world you lived in turned out to be nothing like what you had expected? What if your whole basis of existing in that world was turned upside down and you found out you had no privacy and were being manipulated your whole life?......the turn the series takes is quite an unusual one. The truth about their lives and how they were living was shocking.....Change does take time."
Vampire Kisses by Ellen Schreiber
"Schreiber does a good job of describing the scenes, making it easy to picture what is going on... It was very easy to follow. Schreiber’s writing flows nicely and it keeps you wanting to read."
Kissing Coffins by Ellen Schreiber
"it had a little bit more action which was entertaining. It is a very light read, very quick to get through. I like that Schreiber doesn’t fill our heads with unnecessary characters or situations. Everything she writes has a purpose and has to do with the main story."
Vampireville by Ellen Schreiber
"These books are a quick easy read for teens that are short enough that you can get through them quickly. Yet there is enough going on that it keeps you reading."
