Dust Spells by Andrea Lynn

Dust Spells by Andrea Lynn is a young adult historical fantasy novel that I think is best described as 12 Dancing Princesses meets The Diviners by Libba Bray. It’s set in the 1930s in the Dust Bowl and tells the story of three sisters and one vagrant who discover a magical world where not all […]

When You Get The Chance by Emma Lord

This book was fantastic. I was a little hesitant in the opening chapters because I wasn’t sure I would get invested in a weird rivals-to-lovers where the main characters already thinks the rival is hot as fuck, but in the end the strength of the rival character won out. I recall at first wanting there […]

The Darkest Corners by Kara Thomas

The Darkest Corners by Kara Thomas is this author’s debut, and as much as I enjoyed it, I think I enjoyed her later novels more. I definitely feel that she grew as a writer through her next few novels. This one felt a bit like a mystery, but never really pulled off suspense or thriller […]

The Seven Year Slip by Ashley Poston

I’m giving this five stars even though I didn’t love it as much as The Dead Romantics because I do love Ashley Poston, there was absolutely nothing wrong with this book and many, many things that were very good. However I think that the reason I didn’t love it as much as The Dead Romantics […]

The Encounter (Animorphs Graphix #3) by KA Applegate, Michael Grant, and Chris Grine

As a somewhat devoted fan of the original Animorphs series who once spent an entire day reading the Animorphs Wikipedia and learning absolutely nothing new, seeing Tobias’ story faithfully adapted into a beautiful graphic novel was a treat. Not only does the graphic novel capture all the tense adventure of the original story, it updates […]

The Lake by Natasha Preston

I think that Natasha Preston is not for me. I’ve read The Twin, which was an OK read until the ending, which I did not like AT ALL and rewrote it in my head to an ending that I actually thought was completely plausible and satisfying. With The Lake, I was able to suspend my […]

The Counselors by Jessica Goodman

I really enjoyed Jessica Goodman’s previous novel They’ll Never Catch Us, though I haven’t yet read her debut They Wish They Were us, so when The Counselors (with one L because American spelling) became available on audio at my local library, I went straight to the waiting list. I love listening to thrillers or suspense […]

Dog Driven by Terry Lynn Johnson

I have been dealing with the passing of my beloved sweetheart kitty, so I wanted to bury myself in a book about beloved animals. My first thought was, what’s better than the reliable companionship of a sled dog? So I sought out this book from my local library. This boo is about a 14 year […]

You Must Not Miss by Katrina Leno

I quite enjoyed this book. It was suspenseful, probably even bordering on horror, with a sprinkling of magical realism. I liked the atmospheric writing style. It was suspenseful and evocative, and I found it engaging and entertaining. I like the word choices and how the author kept the audience in suspense for most of the […]

Vigilante by Kady Cross

The thing about this book, about a girl who is sick of people being sexually assaulted by their peers, is that the main character was already super-capable before the book even started. And because of that, she reminded me too much of other super-capable (read: boring) heroines like Celeana Sardothian, so tough that no one […]
