I am going to do something a little different today with my review of “The Art of Not Breathing” by Sarah Alexander. Usually I would give a brief synopsis and go through the review that way but I want to try a different type of review and just get down to the nitty gritty of it all. This book really makes me go back and forth on the fence or whether or liked it or did not like it. Are you ready for the good and the bad of “The Art of Not Breathing?” I have to say that I […]

Why I am Waiting? I am always interested in something that will make me laugh. I think “Winning” will do just that. Alexandra Miles is wanting to become homecoming queen and in order to do that she is going to pull off a devious plot. I feel like this has disaster written all of it. I can’t wait to dive in.

“The Word for Yes” by Claire Needell is an important read however I don’t think it was executed as it should have been. This story is about a not stranger rape. Jan, Erika, and Melanie are three sisters that are going through a big change. The girl’s parents are separating, Jan is off to college, Erika and Melanie are trying to figure out how to coexist. See the two of them have never gotten along. Melanie is always a bully to Erika, and it just gets worse when Melanie gets raped at a party. Erika and Jan have no idea […]

My Teaser: Morris shook his head. “Your mom is great, but she has this weird idea Melanie is about eighteen years old and you’re about ten.” Erika smiled. But she understood why her mom thought like that. Melanie was tough. She was the sort of person you didn’t think needed looking after.

Why I am Waiting? I think “The Word For Yes” is going to rip my heart out and hand it back to me. I am a firm believer of this. The synopsis is the tell tale sign of this. I really hope this novel is full of as much raw emotion as it sounds like there is. I am looking forward to reading this book.

Book Review: Liars, Inc. by Paula Stokes

Book Review: Liars, Inc. by Paula Stokes
Posted December 31, 2015 by love2dazzle in Reviews, Young Adult / 0 Comments

I loved “Liars, Inc!” There were twists and turns through out the entire story. I feel like Paula Stokes out did herself with this one. “Liars, Inc” is a young adult thriller that will have readers hooked until the very last page. It has been hard trying to find a really good thriller for young adult readers. I feel like Stokes was able to hit the thriller genre right on the mark. “Liars, Inc” is a story that will keep the readers guessing. Even if one thinks they have everything figured out, they will find out that they are completely […]

Allie always looked up to her big sister Leah. These two sisters mad a pact together, but Leah didn’t stick to the pact. Allie wants to know why Leah killed herself. Allie keeps seeing Leah around, even though she knows that Leah is dead. This is a very heavy story. The story covers pain and lost but also finding a new hope. I really liked getting to know Allie and following her on this journey to figure out who she is and what she expects from life. It is a big change for her not having her sister in her […]


Book Review: Hook’s Revenge by Heidi Schultz

Book Review: Hook’s Revenge by Heidi Schultz
Posted November 28, 2015 by love2dazzle in Middle Grade, Reviews / 0 Comments

“Hook’s Revenge” is such a cute story. This is one that shall not disappoint! This story is about Captain Hook’s daughter Jocelyn. She is such a spunky character. I loved her to pieces. Jocelyn is sent to a school for girls to be taught how to be a proper lady but the only thing that Jocelyn wants to be is a proper pirate. Schulz does a great job in bringing Jocelyn to life for her readers. I have read a lot of Peter Pan retellings and sequels and I have to say that “Hook’s Revenge” is one of the best. […]
