I was waiting for “The Siren” by Kiera Cass for what seemed like forever. The old version was taken off the shelves. I had to wait for the new version to come out by HarperTeen. I ended up getting lucky and acquired an ARC. I dove right in; however my review has been long anticipated since I finished the book a while ago. Summary: Kahlen was supposed to die. She shouldn’t have lived. Her family is gone. Miraculously, Kahlen ends up being saved by the Ocean to become a siren. Kahlen is now a very deadly weapon. She and her other Siren […]

“Fire Falling” by Elise Kova was definitely a much better book. Everyone is always worried about whether or not the second book would be the sophomore slump book and I think Kova was able to overcome this. Kova really got into Vhalla’s character in this book. Vhalla gained so much confidence in this book. It was so great. It made me happy to see Vhalla to finally be a confident character. Kova’s writing is fantastic. She did a great job writing this book. Everything sounds great. I loved her style and how she tells the story. I think “Fire Falling” […]

The Only Thing Worse Than Me Is You Blog Tour: Excerpt and Review

PRAISE: “A hilarious, heartfelt book that treats pop culture and Shakespeare with the same reverence and adoration, THE ONLY THING WORSE THAN ME IS YOU a perfect geeky read that I wish I’d had in high school. If you could rate books on a scale of comic book conditions, this book would be MINT.”-Eric Smith, blogger and author of The Geek’s Guide to Dating “There’s a lot to enjoy in debut novelist Anderson’s geek-positive update of Much Ado About Nothing, including intense comic book fandom, a cheating scandal, student council drama, themed dances, and two central characters engaged in an […]

Ali: Thank you Nora for stopping by Dazzled by Books today. It is really great to have you here. I want to start off this interview with a hard question but it is totally good, what is your favorite book of 2016 so far? Nora: Not that any of them were published in 2016, but of the books I’ve read so far this year, I’ve really enjoyed All The Bright Places (YA), Big Little Lies (Women’s Fiction) and All The Light We Cannot See (Literary). (There’s a “light” theme apparently.) I am also deeply excited for Curtis Sittenfeld’s Eligible. A: […]

“Island in the Sea” by Anita Hughes was good but not as good as the past books that I have read by Hughes. I was a big disappointed on all the product names. It seemed to be more products pushing than anything else. I get that Lionel was supposed to be super famous and all but all the brand name products was unnecessary. I was really looking forward to this book because I have really liked the past novels by Hughes. I feel like “Island in the Sea” is a bit mediocre. Hughes didn’t spend a lot of time setting […]

An Amish Year by Beth Wiseman

An Amish Year by Beth Wiseman

I absolutely love Beth Wiseman but I did not love this. These novella stories don’t feel like Wiseman put her heart into it. It seems that she just didn’t do as good as a job or dedicated time to these stories. It was very disappointing to get two novellas that are already published and have been out for a while. I would have loved to get some of Wiseman’s writing back like it was in her first novels. Her new stuff hasn’t been able to keep me interested.
