Think of Our Reviews As Introductions or First Dates

 

We all know that nothing replaces reading an entire book (especially in one sitting, over a slow, breezy weekend…)

Think of our book reviews as first dates.  They are deeper relationships than the ones we share with strangers from a distance, but they don’t require intense commitment.

We hope you enjoy.  Please, be our guest.

In which a witch bewitched the hatter’s daughter – and then some….Sophie lived in the town of Market Chipping, which was in Ingary, a land in which anything could happen, and often did – especially when the Witch of the Waste got her dander up.

The story takes place in the future where virtual reality is more like reality as most people spend their time in the virtual world of OASIS. Initially I was intrigued as it reminded me of the Bruce Willis movie Surrogates which I enjoyed, but this book was even better

Book Review: The Raft by S. A. Bodeen

Book Review: The Raft by S. A. Bodeen

I can’t really say much more about The Raft. I didn’t form a connection with the characters and I just felt like I knew how it was going to end before it got there. There were times that I was freakin’ out with Robie – especially with the sharks and being in the water.

Fairytales have started to become super popular lately in everything from movies, to TV (I’m an avid Once Upon a Time viewer), to, obviously, books. When we first were asked to review this particular book, I was excited for a new take on Snow White, but really didn’t know what to expect.

I feel that’s something to be aware of when reading the book, but I’d say it’s what makes Marley seem like such an amazing character in the way he deals with life that I appreciate the honesty of the writing

I was super stoked to see if the second book of the Gallagher Girls Series would live up to the hype built in first book and I was not disappointed in the least! I loved the integration of the boys school into the world of Gallagher Academy and the girls’ daily lives.

Book Review: The Other Life by Susanne Winnacker

Book Review: The Other Life by Susanne Winnacker

The Other Life is a fast, entertaining read. I liked the direction that Winnacker went with the Weepers and think the world that she created would be very interesting if I knew more details. I’m a details person, y’all. I love them – so I need that in my books, especially my dystopian books.
