Geekerella is equal parts sugary sweet, endearing, and an out of this world perfect read.

Frostblood by Elly Blake

In a never-ending search for the next fabulous Young Adult fantasy to read I exuberantly accepted Frostblood, debut author, Elly Blake's first in series. The story had the look and feel of exactly what I like. As a huge fan of Sarah Maas's series, and books like Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard, Frostblood had a lot to live up to, and while not a contender for best in the genre, it was a good book. I recommend it to fans of the genre. You won't be disappointed.

I Am Princess X by Cherie Priest

‘I Am Princess X’ by Cherie Priest was an original young adult mystery that engaged me instantly and kept me guessing the entire time. I found the writing style to be a little more juvenile than other YAs in the genre, but I enjoyed it and look forward to reading more of Priest’s novels. ‘I Am Princess X’ is a novel mixed with a comic that meshes with the story, instead of illustrating the...

Intense Young Adult Fantasy Debut – The Sin Eater’s Daughter

The first in a new Young Adult Fantasy Series, "The Sin Eater's Daughter" by Melinda Salisbury is a book that had me intrigued from the cover and the synopsis. It was one of those books I picked up and put down, and picked up and put down - and then finally took the plunge and read. I actually thought it was more middle grade - but this one is definitely in the MATURE Young Adult category. The novel has a quick start, and it plunges you deep into a fantasy world and sets up a dark and dastardly plot that will have your head spinning. Then leaves you hanging in the end...

The Taking by Kimberly Derting #Review

PJV Quickie: THE TAKING by Kimberly Derting was a very intriguing start to a new series by this fabulous author. Derting has a creepy style that I enjoy, but she held it in check with The Taking, playing on suspense and mystery more then horror. It went over well and I find myself highly anticipating the next book in the series. REVIEW: One moment Kyra is on the road screaming at her father over...

Let’s Have a Quickie 5 Star – Expiration Day by William Campbell Powell

Expiration Day by William Campbell Powell was a surprise. The novel is touching and embraces a scifi / robot / future theme, much like you would find in classic scifi literature, but in a YA setting. It was reminiscent of some of the great English SciFi writers, like Stephen Baxter or Arthur C. Clarke that strive to write a message within the futuristic scope. The topic is “What Makes Us...
