‘Merica – Classic American Literature You Should Probably Read

I feel unAmerican to admit that I wasn't a HUGE fan of classic American literature. It's almost painful for me to read Steinbeck, and Hemingway with some of his titles underwhelmed, and don't get me...

Cast in Flight by Michelle Sagara – Fantasy #Review

My biggest complaint about this book is that it is number twelve in a series. Unfortunately NetGalley needs to update their series displays, unless it’s in the synopsis you can’t tell if it’s a series book. Yes, shame on me, I should have gone onto Goodreads.com and checked, but you see a pretty cover and a cool blurb and you get excited and you click. So, I think this book would have been much better if I was actually committed to the series, since there were eleven books that came before it.

Once a Gypsy by Danica Winters #PNR Review

A fresh new Paranormal Romance series, Once a Gypsy is a unique read that I found enjoyable and entertaining. Very slow to start it took me a little to get used to the nuances of the story and slog through a lot of the need to establish gypsy culture - but once the story got going it was interesting. I give it to Winters for staying true to the real gypsy culture, or at least the one that we are used to as depicted by TLC and not brushing it off, she did a great job of portraying pseudo-reality within the pages of fiction.

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.

Time Traveling with a Hamster by Ross Welford

This was scheduled to be the first review by the Little Junkee, aka my offspring, since she’s now in the 4th grade and has to do “book advertising” for her ELA class at school. I thought it would be perfect to lead up to little features on the blog, since she has expressed interest in reviewing. Video reviews of course. Who needs to type? But, four hours of homework later and this got moved down the list. But, she did read TIME TRAVELING WITH A HAMSTER (with me) and told me about it, so I would like to preface the review with this. This is my nine year old’s view of TIME TRAVELING WITH A HAMSTER by Ross Welford. I think her views are more pertinent than mine since this book was perfect for her.

Useless Bay by M. J. Beaufrand

Useless Bay by M.J. Beaufrand was a quaint YA mystery that was reminiscent of my childhood favorites, the early Christopher Pike books - or even further with Nancy Drew.

Magic Binds by Ilona Andrews #Review

There is a reason Ilona Andrews has a loyal following – this husband-and-wife team consistently writes action-packed books that hold the reader's attention until the very end. Twisting plot lines and detailed action scenes keep us on the edge of our seat right up to the last line. This is the ninth book in the series and it hasn’t gotten old; the story is still lively and exciting enough to re-read.
