Lucas MacKenzie and the London Midnight Ghost Show

  I am going to start off with, of course, the amazing cover. Because I am a complete sucker for a great cover. It's the first thing someone sees, and it PULLS a reader in. This one did just that. Great job Month9Books! This book, I really liked. It was a great middle school book, that in the future I will let my daughter read. ( It's still a bit too early for her. ) Lucas has quite the job for his age, and that involves running into some unexpected creatures along the way. Ghosts, vampires, the adventure never ends for him. He goes on quite the quest to find his friend Yorick, and trying to find his family. He felt it was...

The Ghost of You

  Powerful. Heart breaking. Emotional. Affecting. Compelling. These are just a few of the words I would use to describe this amazing book, which had me crying in bed at 2am. Crying like a complete and utter baby. I don't even know where to begin. I had an incredible amount of feeling hitting me while reading this book. It's a crazy roller coaster ride, which ended in the perfect way. It wasn't one of those books that took you for a ride, and then crashed. One of the best stand alone books I have read this year. I can't imagine how it would feel to lose someone, so close to you. Especially a twin. In a way, you can't blame her for the...

The Glass Arrow

  "They've forgotten, or maybe they never learned, that their worth is not determined by how much a man wants them." This book has blown me away, and set me sail in the waters of absolute love. Phenomenal. It comes out of the starting gate, and kicks you right in the face with action, then drags you by the arm and pulls you right through to the final round. In a way, it's scary. This book made me think - About how these women live on a daily basis, some of them feeling that it's appropriate for things to be this way. I would never be able to live in a world like this. But to be honest, if raised from the beginning to...

Going Down in Flames

I wasn't sure how I was going to feel about this book when I bought it. I read the blurb, and started reading. ( My best friend read it at the same time with me! ) The first thing I noticed that I loved about this, there are none of your typical things in this books - Vampires, Werewolves, all that jazz. It has dragons and knights. Who doesn't love a good book with dragons and knights. Bryn, the main character, does not conform to any certain cliche, she is a rebel and leads not follows. As i've mentioned time and time again, I love a book with a good strong female lead. I think my only complaint is I feel...

Spark Rising

When I started reading this book, I had been wanting to read another dystopian, which happens to be one of my favorite genres to indulge in. And did I ever indulge in this book. I breathed it in. It was delicious. The world building is beyond words, I could picture everything as I went along. I loved the concept of dust and sparks, something different from everything else I have read as of late. Lena is one of the strongest female characters I have come across, truly living for herself. Strong, powerful and not a woman to take shit of any kind, from anyone. She had only herself, to keep her going, when it came to making sure she was safe, and...

Red Queen

“The truth is what I make it. I could set this world on fire and call it rain.” I had the pleasure of reading this beauty the day it came out, thanks to one of my best friends whom preordered it, and let me read it before her. With all the hype, the excitement, and that gorgeous cover, I was pretty pumped to get my hands on it and jump in. It took me a while to find myself really being into the story. I, personally, found the beginning a bit slow, and I was a little disappointed. I love the characters and the idea of bleeding silver and red. It's a very unique concept that I loved about this book. One of...

The Girl on the Train

“Life is not a paragraph, and death is no parenthesis.” I picked up my copy of this book to take part in Chapters/Indigos Worlds Biggest Book Club. Every month, they pick a book and then at the end of the month, everyone comes together on Twitter to discuss it. ( Sometimes with the author. ) I knew when I grabbed this book, that it was not the type of genre I usually go for. Normally I stray away from these books, but I thought what the heck, and I dove in feet first. Thank the stars I did, because this book is officially on my top 10 for this year. It absolutely blew me away. Just when I thought I knew what...
