Review: School’s Out – Forever

May 16, 2016

School’s Out – Forever by James Patterson My rating: 4 of 5 stars Good sequel. This series really reminds me of the Lorien Legacies: Group of kids, all with developing powers, running from evil non-humans much more powerful than they are, whose destiny is to save the world… And they have a talking dog… Pretty […]


Review: The Snow Queen

May 15, 2016

The Snow Queen by Hans Christian Andersen My rating: 3 of 5 stars Weird story. So this is obviously a story of redemption and, while I see vague similarities, this is not at all like the story in Frozen. Frozen, of course, claims that this is the tale which their movie is based off of. […]


Review: The Angel Experiment

May 9, 2016

The Angel Experiment by James Patterson My rating: 4 of 5 stars This is a fun book. I am glad to have read it. I plan to continue the series, as well. It is a young adult genre – and was clearly written for a young audience – but its not so young that you […]


Review: A Study in Scarlet

March 30, 2016

A Study in Scarlet by Arthur Conan Doyle My rating: 4 of 5 stars My first dive in to the world of Sherlock Holmes was certainly as strange one. I enjoyed this book much more than I thought I would. Many people claim it is very boring and through the first 30%, I’d say I […]


Review: The Healer’s Apprentice

March 26, 2016

The Healer’s Apprentice by Melanie Dickerson My rating: 3 of 5 stars Bad beginning, better middle, extremely obvious ending… But overall fun to read once you get in to the story somewhat. Although, it was very easy to guess where they were going from very early on. The mystery of the thing was ruined immediately […]


Review: Seventh Grave and No Body

February 27, 2016

Seventh Grave and No Body by Darynda Jones My rating: 4 of 5 stars Finally we are seeing what Charley is capable of!! I like Osh, too. But I think he is hiding something. I want to see more of what Charley can do next also, but maybe more magic and less magic-words would be […]


Review: Carriers: A Novel

February 15, 2016

Carriers: A Novel by Patrick Lynch My rating: 4 of 5 stars This was a really good read. The book was a little slow-ish to start. Slow-ish because the urgency that you would expect once a sort of plague begins to show itself -that there would be more panic and that stuff would begin to […]


Review: American Psycho

January 29, 2016

American Psycho by Bret Easton Ellis My rating: 3 of 5 stars I am not happy. I just finished a book that was pretty gross, fairly disturbing, had smut woven all through it, had no story arch, and no ending. The only reason this book got 3 stars is because the characters were funny to […]


Review: You’re Never Weird on the Internet

November 21, 2015

You’re Never Weird on the Internet by Felicia Day My rating: 4 of 5 stars I love you, Felicia! I am a weird internet gamer girl in her mid thirties, too, who totally loves everything that Felicia does and not just cuz she’s a girl. I also love the dudes that keep geeking fun such […]


Review: Shutter Island

November 20, 2015

Shutter Island by Dennis Lehane My rating: 4 of 5 stars Wow. That was a cool story. Although, having had that there was a (view spoiler)[twist at the end (hide spoiler)] leaked to me early-on, I will say that I was doing the thing where (view spoiler)[you read into the story too much and really […]


Review: Sixth Grave on the Edge

June 13, 2015

Sixth Grave on the Edge by Darynda Jones My rating: 5 of 5 stars Another amazing addition to the series. I love these books for many reasons. I love the mystery, the banter, the silliness, the non-stop action, and the paranormal epicness of the plot. I was totally freaked that a character was going to […]


Review: The Wonderful Wizard of Oz

May 19, 2015

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum My rating: 3 of 5 stars That was an odd story. It’s definitely written for children. It was much less entertaining than I would have thought, as a classic. And the differences from the iconic movie were surprising and hard to accept since the movie is […]


Review: A Christmas Carol

December 23, 2014

A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens My rating: 4 of 5 stars Just like the many movies, the book was pretty much as i had expected it. I had hoped to see a more gradual, realistic change in Scrooge than in his movie counterparts since that’s never been probable to me of the story, but […]
