by Ann Aguirre
"I Highly Recommend this Fast-Paced Post-Apocolyptic YA Novel!"
Posted July 8, 2011

After reading Shady Lady, I was eager to move on to the other Ann Aguirre novel I had, ENCLAVE, a YA story. ENCLAVE is promoted as similar to The Hunger Games, which I've never read. This story was a smidgen slow, but once it gets Read more...

Wickham's Diary
by Amanda Grange
"A Must for Austen Lovers!"
Posted July 8, 2011

I love all Ms. Austen's....movies. Ok, so embarrassing, I've never actually read any Jane Austen, but I LOVE all the Austen-based movies, so I was psyched to see WICKHAM'S DIARY by Amanda Grange on our list. His less-then polished background is hinted at (at Read more...

Shady Lady
by Ann Aguirre
"Greatest compliment I could give is that she reminds me of Kim Harrison, one of my favorite authors of all time."
Posted July 8, 2011

I had never read a Corine Solomon book before, but SHADY LADY sounded good and I have a passing acquaintance with the author, so I thought I'd read it. I was not disappointed. Corine's story gets started immediately, with an introduction of her character in her pawn shop Read more...

The Breakout Novelist
by Donald Maass
"If you don't own any Donald Maass books, this is the one to get!"
Posted July 8, 2011

As I writer, I was psyched to read THE BREAKOUT NOVELIST by the great Donald Maass who is a giant in the publishing industry. This book has so much information in it, you may want to just nibble your way through, as there is too much information to consume large Read more...

by Rebecca Lim

The Dressmaker of Khair Khana
by Gayle Tzemach Lemmon
"Very Interesting Story of the Plight of Afghani Women"
Posted June 2, 2011

THE DRESSMAKER OF KHAIR KHANA gives us a glimpse of what it's like to be a woman in Afghanistan at a time when we, as Americans, assume we know that they are oppressed. In reality, the capital city of Khair Khana was a liberated city where women worked, were Read more...

Fang Me
by Parker Blue

FANG ME is the third in the Val Shapiro series and the best by far. Val is really in the thick of things now, what with trying to figure out what happened to a valuable set of books her father bequeathed her. She gave them to her demon cousin for Read more...

Bite Me
by Parker Blue
"First Book in the Series has Some Bite!"
Posted May 11, 2011

BITE ME is the first in a series by Parker Blue and stars Val Shapiro, a half succubus/half human vampire hunter. Definitely a twist on all those vampire stories out there! From the get-go, we are launched into Val's situation: her mother has just kicked her out Read more...

Daybreak Zero
by John Barnes
"A Complex Post-Apocalyptic Story"
Posted May 10, 2011

It probably would have helped if I had read the precursor to DAYBREAK ZERO, but John Barnes does a darn good job of catching us up without it being overwhelming. After Daybreak, a mysterious, moon-based entity, has done its best to destroy all human life on Earth, it continues Read more...

"Tension, romance, and a larger cast of characters make for a great book 2"

The Soldier
by Grace Burrowes
"A Historical Fiction for Modern Times!"
Posted April 29, 2011

THE SOLDIER by Grace Burrowes is full of strong-willed characters; from the soldier himself, Devlin St. Just, to his love interest, Emmaline, to the young girl Winnie, personalities are clashing left and right. Things are going along just fine for Emmaline Farnum, or Emmie as she is called, as Read more...
