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 […]

Stars: Three “How far would you go to save the person you loved most in the world? And what if he were already…dead?” Wren’s boyfriend Danny died in a car accident before she had a chance to say goodbye. In a moment of grief, she brings him back from the dead with a powerful spell. But she soon realizes that the boy brought back is no longer quite the boy she loved. I was surprised that the author focused a lot on love, loss, grief, and responsibility. The author shows us a lot of what Wren’s and Danny’s relationship should […]

I don’t even know where to start right now. All I can say is that I am completely blown away. It isn’t very often that a book catches me by surprise. I am a writer myself and so I usually try to figure out the plot and where the author is going with the story, why I am reading it. I was so engrossed in Rachel Carter’s book and so completely captivated that I just wanted to know what happens next…the story wasn’t as predictable as I thought it was going to be. Of course, with this being a trilogy…there […]
