Review: The Invisible (Brokenhearted #2) by Amelia Kahaney

Review: The Invisible (Brokenhearted #2) by Amelia Kahaney

October 31, 2014 Review 0 ★★★★

While it didn’t manage to pack quite the emotional punch as THE BROKENHEARTED, THE INVISIBLE has it’s own way of twisting the reader’s heartstrings. A thrilling and action-packed follow-up to THE BROKENHEARTED, THE INVISIBLE will grab readers from the beginning and remind them why they loved book one so much.

Review: Loop (Loop #1) by Karen Atkins

Review: Loop (Loop #1) by Karen Atkins

October 25, 2014 Review 0 ★★★

I keep trying time-travel stories and while LOOP is the first one that left me with a vague sense that I understood what was going on in the various timelines, they still end up giving me something of a headache while I read them. I can’t help wondering if my struggle to keep up with what’s going on keeps me from fully engaging with the plot itself. As far as LOOP goes, I think that’s only half of it.

Review: Sublime by Christina Lauren

Review: Sublime by Christina Lauren

October 18, 2014 Review 0 ★★★

Don’t be fooled into expecting the usual YA ghostly love story, SUBLIME will entrap those tender expectations and twist them into horror. While the characters are as charismatic as expected from the expert romance duo Christina Lauren, most of the ghostly promise of the plot ultimately fell flat.

Release Day Review: Stitching Snow by R. C. Lewis

Release Day Review: Stitching Snow by R. C. Lewis

October 14, 2014 Review 2 ★★★

A very creative take on the Snow White fairy tale, STITCHING SNOW has a brilliant heroine coupled with a stubborn and honorable hero, taking place in what appears to be a galaxy, far far away. While some of the plot points were a bit predictable, it was a diverting read, and a fun way to spend a few hours.

Review: Snow Like Ashes (Snow Like Ashes #1) by Sara Raasch

Review: Snow Like Ashes (Snow Like Ashes #1) by Sara Raasch

October 14, 2014 Review 1 ★★★★

Though the world of SNOW LIKE ASHES by Sara Raasch is a bit uninspired in its construction, Raasch more than makes up for kingdoms named after seasons and capital cities named for misspelled calendar months with Meira and the other refugees of the Kingdom of Winter. An aspiring soldier, desperate to be important to her people and her lost homeland, sixteen-year-old Meira struggles with being kept off the battlefield and forced into a world of political machinations. She’s a pawn, she’s a symbol, she’s a hero – much like THE HUNGER GAMES Katniss, all Meira really knows is that she wants to survive. That, and she’s in love with her best friend, the once and future king.

Review: Crown of Ice by Vicki L. Weavil

Review: Crown of Ice by Vicki L. Weavil

October 5, 2014 Review 0 ★★★★

CROWN OF ICE offers so much more than just the tale of The Snow Queen with a change of perspective. A solid YA adventure with teenagers who learn so much about themselves, and each other. Even the expected happily ever after offers believable surprises that underscore the maturity and independence they each have gained.
