Review: ‘The Game of Love and Death’ by Martha Brockenbrough #COYER #2016HW

From the first paragraph, you are thoroughly aware that this isn’t your typical Young Adult fare. It’s a most unusual and unique tale that is told in an old-fashioned manner. It is bright and hopeful; it is shadowy and piercing. And while... Read More | Share it now!

Review: ‘The First Time She Drowned’ by Kerry Kletter #COYER #SRC

Review: ‘The Heir and the Spare’ by Emily Albright

On occasion (or twelve), I will read a book and put off writing the review. There are always different reasons, but it happens. It totally sucks when it is a book that I’ve been asked to review, especially if I didn’t like it the first... Read More | Share it now!

Shirley Temple’s got nothing on ~ ‘Bright Side’ by Kim Holden #Review #COYER

It’s never a good sign when I have multiple pages of notes about a book I am reading. Let’s just say I heard about this book from a friend and decided to check it out for myself. Other than fulfilling a scavenger hunt item in a summer book... Read More | Share it now!
