The Perils of Intimacy Cover

The Perils of Intimacy

First I want to say thank you to NinePress for allowing me to read this Advanced Reader’s Copy. Now on to the review! Oh, what can I say, The Perils of Intimacy drew me in from the first few pages. I think it was the writing style that caught my attention. Each part of the […]

Living Dead In Dallas Cover

Living Dead in Dallas

Book two in the Sookie Stackhouse series, Living Dead in Dallas, is an alright addition to the series. For me, there was nothing really special about this book that drew me. But I did read is just a few days, it is on the shorter side pages wide. If you are looking for a quick […]

Harry Potter and Prisoner of Azkaban

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

The series continues! I really enjoyed the great character/world-building that took place in the book. I wish I could ride the knight bus! Diagon Alley just seems so magical and would be so fun to explore. We explored more of the Hogwarts castle and the surrounding areas in this book, which I really enjoyed. Overall […]

New Year, New E-Reader

The Evolution of Claire

The Evolution of Claire

I have long been a fan of the Jurrasic Park series. I think I first watched the first couple of movies in the early 2000s with my grandfather. Of course, being as young as I was I thought it was so scary. But as time went on I started to love them even more. That […]

Hocus Pocus Cover

Hocus Pocus & The All New Sequel

Okay, so Hocus Pocus the book is amazing! The first part follows the plot of the movie with some added aspects. The second part was all new and followed their child. The pace was really good and kept my attention. I was on vacation when I read this which was nice and relaxing. The second […]

Dead Until Dark Cover

Dead Until Dark

I LOVED this book! I read it a few years back but re-reading it recently I noticed a lot of details I did not notice the first time. While the book is from Sookie Stackhouse’s point of view, there is never a dull moment. At times she is naive and a little whiny but that […]

Princess in the Spotlight Cover

Princess in the Spotlight

Okay so honestly this book was just like the first one in regards to the writing style. If I had given it my true attention I would have finished it a lot sooner than I did. This book is geared more towards the middle school age group. As with the first book, this deviates from […]
