Katherine Sheppard is the exception to the rule. That is, as long as she continues to run from the law; murder innocent people; and manipulate the Collector’s List… Shouldn’t be hard, right? Since the tender age of six, Katherine has always loved to hear Jonathan’s nightly stories about tracking, stalking, and collecting his victims. She’s even had the privilege of watching souls transition into the afterlife, led by the hand of the Collector to their paths where angels or demons escort them home. It has been an unwavering friendship that has flourished for sixteen years. That is, until an unexplainable […]

Amy is fine living in the shadows of beautiful Lila and uber-cool Cassie, because at least she’s somewhat beautiful and uber-cool by association. But when the girls get stood up for prom and take matters into their own hands—earning them a night in jail outfitted in satin, stilettos, and Spandex — Amy discovers even a prom spent in handcuffs might be better than the humiliating “rehabilitation techniques” now filling up her summer. Even worse, with Lila and Cassie prenatally banned, Amy feels like she has nothing — like she is nothing.Navigating unlikely alliances with her new coworker, two very different […]

Tamani looked at her gravely, and reached up to tuck her hair behind her ear. He hesitated for an instant, then his hands found the sides of her face, pulling her to him. He didn’t kiss her, just held her face close to his, their foreheads resting together, their noses almost touching. She hated how much it felt like good-bye. Laurel now knows the truth: Yuki is a rare Winter faerie, the most powerful–and deadly–of all, and Klea plans to use her to help conquer and destroy Avalon. But Klea’s reach extends far beyond one wild Winter faerie. With Tamani, […]

Perfect for the fans of “Shatter Me” who are desperately awaiting the release of “Unravel Me,” this novella-length digital original will bridge the gap between these two novels from the perspective of the villain we all love to hate, Warner, the ruthless leader of Sector 45. In Tahereh Mafi’s “Shatter Me”, Juliette escaped from The Reestablishment by seducing Warner—and then putting a bullet in his shoulder. But as she’ll learn in “Destroy Me,” Warner is not that easy to get rid of. . . Back at the base and recovering from his near-fatal wound, Warner must do everything in his […]

Juliette hasn’t touched anyone in exactly 264 days. The last time she did, it was an accident, but The Reestablishment locked her up for murder. No one knows why Juliette’s touch is fatal. As long as she doesn’t hurt anyone else, no one really cares. The world is too busy crumbling to pieces to pay attention to a 17-year-old girl. Diseases are destroying the population, food is hard to find, birds don’t fly anymore, and the clouds are the wrong color. The Reestablishment said their way was the only way to fix things, so they threw Juliette in a cell. […]

I was very excited when I got this book because it is my very first uncorrected proof. Thank you so much Epic Reads. I started reading “The Turning” right away. What I didn’t count on, is with starting school up, this book was going to take forever for me to read and that was mainly because I didn’t have the time, not because I didn’t like the book. Here is my very first uncorrected proof review. I hope you enjoy. Stars: Three Jack is babysitting for the summer on an isolated island with no Wi-Fi, no cell service, and no […]

Lorenzo places his hands on either side of my face, lowering his head to stare directly into my eyes. His voice is barely above a whisper as he says, “you are my dream now.” Being on Rachel Harris’ Flirt Squad,  I was eagerly awaiting the release of her book.  Promoting “My Super Sweet Sixteenth Century” has been such a blast, I was excited to receive my pre-ordered copy early from Amazon.   Finally I am getting a chance to review this lovely book for my lovely author friend Rachel Harris. I have to say that time traveling has never been my […]

Stars: Five Oh my goodness!!! I am not totally sure where I need to start with this review. This book was great. I liked it better than the first two books. I couldn’t put the book down. I needed to know what happens next. Cassandra Clare has done a great job wither her character development. I like reading series because I love to see the character development. I like to see where characters start and how they grow and develop. I read a lot of books and my favorite genre is Young Adult Fiction and authors tend to write about […]

Stars: Five I wasn’t really sure if I was going to like this series or not. I really like the mortal Instrument books and I wasn’t sure Cassandra Clare was going to be able to top her debut series. I was completely wrong. I was blown away. I loved this book. I thought Clockwork Angel was way better then the first Mortal Instruments trilogy. I love the Victoria Era of London that the book is set in. It was definitely a change of scenery compared to all of the books I have been reading lately. Jem and Will…goodness can you […]
