The Hunger Games Trilogy, by Suzanne Collins

 #1  4 Stars I thought this book was well written, the characters were engrossing, the Hunger Games were nightmarish, and overall I enjoyed the book. Having never read some of the books that others say this book has features from, none of that bothers me, because well, I’m sure Suzanne put her own spin and …

Fire by Kristin Cashore

4/5 Stars I really, really enjoy Cashore’s writing style. I love how she describes places and things and people, I love how she let’s you use your imagination to paint the details. I think that is important when writing. I enjoyed Fire. I was engrossed from the very beginning. It was interesting to see the …

Graceling, by Kristin Cashore

I will try not to give spoilers, really about 3.5 to 3.75 stars Spoiler at the end only I both liked this book and didn’t like this book. The writing was promising. Kristin Cashore’s style was graceful, fluid, without excess descriptions, and I associated with most of the characters. I enjoyed the world that she …

The Name of the Wind, by Patrick Rothfuss

5/5 Stars!! I cannot believe that this book is a debut from Patrick Rothfuss. I don’t normally read pure fantasy, I generally like a little more romance, a little more fantastical beasts (Vampires, Were’s, Paranormal) but something about this book drew me in before I even read it. I found the description here at Goodreads …

Naked Edge, by Pamela Clare

4.5/5  I-Team Novel #4 What a great and riveting book. It felt authentic, Pamela Clare really did her research on Navajo and Indian Culture (I think!) Kat was a strong, virtuous, fierce, survivalist heroine. Gabe is a Hardened, adrenaline junkie who doesn’t believe in love, just sex. I thought the book was well written, interesting, …

Review: Unlawful Contact by Pamela Clare

    Unlawful Contact by Pamela Clare I-Team Novel #3 This book was great. Pamela Clare is an extremely talented author. Her writing is concise, eloquent, and easy to read. Her characterization is fantastic. I found myself rooting for a convicted felon to actually not get caught when he escapes prison. I mean, not many …

Review: Hard Evidence by Pamela Clare

      Hard Evidence by Pamela Clare I-Team Novel #2 Quick, Quick Review: Again, well written, fast paced, interesting and dangerous. Tortured, Alpha Male Hero, Strong, Compassionate Female Lead. I liked both Julian and Tessa. Both have scarred pasts, secrets and have trouble connecting with others. Pamela Clare has a gift for writing likeable …

Queen of Song and Souls, by C.L Wilson

Rain and Ellysetta continue on their journey towards completing their mating bond, gaining alliances, and defending the Fey,Tairen,and Humans as well. Tempers Fly high as the Bond Madness begins, and Ellysetta is plagued by horrid nightmares and possible futures. Elly still cannot trust herself. Meeting with the King of the Elves was interesting to say the …

Bayou Moon, by Ilona Andrews

Bayou Moon is due out in stores September 28th, 2010 447 pages…woah. A Long book! 4.25/5 Stars this was a great read! I’ll write more Character based Reviews in a week or so 😛 I can’t classify The Edge Series. It isn’t Urban, it isn’t Paranormal. It isn’t Romance. I could try to classify this …

City of Ghosts, by Stacia Kane

I owe Stacia Kane an apology. The first book was good, but I was put off by drug use. I let it cloud my mind and it took away from the reading experience for me. However, I still was fascinated by Chess and the host of characters in the Downside Series. Saying that… This book …

Unholy Ghosts by Stacia Kane

 This was an interesting debut book for her new series. I really thought the world and concept were original and interesting. I find I was intrigued by Chess aka Cesaria Putnam. This book had a lot going for it, but I was really bugged with all the drug use. It was extreme, and hard to read and …
