Let me start off by saying that while this while this idea has already been done before, I haven't read other books like this, but I can say that this book was awesome and I loved it.The characters and basically the whole plot of the story was well written and well orchestrated. I felt like nothi...

I read a review copy of this book on Net Galley, and this is my honest review. I really enjoyed this book once I got into it. It was a little confusing at first, mostly due to Elias' personality disorder and switching back and forth between regular Elias and the "Other One", as he called himself....
A Killer Retreat (2000)

I read this as it was readily available on Kindle while I was waiting on a few other books I had on hold. It's cutesy, almost too precious with the nicknames the main character assigns to everything. She (Kate) is pretty obnoxious, as are her friends and all but one other character in the book,...

This is a great book. It seriously blew me away. It’s an emotional, moving read which I’m pretty sure has made its way to my all time favourites list.I immediately felt compassion for Sora our main character. Sora is diagnoses with ALS at a young age. It’s heart breaking. ALS is an awful disease....

Increíble ! Definitivamente entendí que lo que lo me gusto del primer libro fue la ambientación, no disfruto para nada los libros históricos, los personajes son maravillosos y sin duda ambientados en esta época resultan mil veces mas interesante y menos mártires, en especial el femenino. Excelent...

I just can't even. There are no words for this review. I've put off writing it for a week now and STILL have no words. So I'm just going to say if you like fighter books, you like things a little dark, a little dirty, and a whole lot of rollercoaster then you NEED to read this book. NEED IT! I lo...
The Lonely (2014)

Almost a five-star read for me, this is highly recommended for jaded readers looking for sophisticated YA fare.I liked:- The writing style. It’s sophisticated, engaging and draws the reader into its world immediately with the appealing voice of its central character. So good to read a YA book w...
Rich Kids of Instagram (2014)

See that one-star rating up there? Has nothing to do with Maya Sloan as a writer—she’s quite talented. That star represents me throwing this book into the bonfires of hell while I hurl my guts into the bowels of my toilet. My fault though. This was a self-inflicted pain.I admit to the guilty, yet...
Zahorí. El legado (2013)
3.97 of 5 Votes: 1
El legado es buena y fue interesante,pero tampoco siento que pasaran demasiadas cosas que le agregaran emoción o intriga a la narración. Se mantuvo en un ritmo lento durante la mayoría de la historia y no es que me aburriera, pero constantemente esperaba que el ritmo acelerara y simplemente que p...
The God Who Smokes: Scandalous Meditations on Faith (2008)

The back cover of this book made it sound like this would be a well-balanced look at emergent theology. However, this book has turned out to be an assault on Rob Bell. Why Rob Bell, you ask? Because Rob Bell and Timothy Stoner share a hometown... and Timothy Stoner seems convinced that Jesus i...

This book was really a good story. I read the whole thing in one sitting and it kept my attention throughout. However, I almost felt like the author was being rushed. We are told in the synopsis that Beth is kidnapped and is caring her fiancé's child. There first back starts out with the baby alr...

Prama (2008)

(Mr. Canfield)I thought the book "Prama" was very realistic. This book was about teenage girl drama the week before prom. All the drama involves boys, mean girls, and the crowning of the prom queen. Molly is the main character, she is involved with the prom committee, which leads her boyfriend...
Beach Week: A Novel (2010)

I grabbed this off the clearance rack and I can see why it was there. I tried to be open minded but the characters are just so stereotypical it makes it hard to be open minded. There are multiple points of view and at times it's just too confusing.The characters all seem to have issues that point...
