Underwater by Marisa Reichardt | Review

Underwater by Marisa Reichardt..

Posted August 16, 2016 by Kaitlynn in review, Uncategorized / 1 Comment

I’ve always been the queen of contemporary but it’s not often that I find a contemporary novel that I adore.  That was the case with Underwater.  Marisa Reichardt’s debut novel completely blew me away. I’m always a big fan of books that are fast paced and have a lot going on.  Underwater is not one […]

Blog Tour: Evidence of Things Not Seen by Lindsey Lane | Review + Interview

Blog Tour: Evidence of Things ..

Posted September 18, 2014 by Kaitlynn in blog tour, interview, review / 4 Comments

Evidence of Things Not Seen might be one of the most bizarre books I’ve ever read.  It’s unlike anything else in the YA market and while it wasn’t my favorite, I truly enjoyed reading it. The story focuses on the disappearance of Tommy Smythe.  Tommy is a strange boy with a fascination for particle physics […]

Rites of Passage by Joy Hensley | Review

Rites of Passage by Joy Hensle..

Posted September 10, 2014 by Kaitlynn in review / 10 Comments

Rites of Passage is a strong debut novel from Joy Hensley.  I was seriously impressed by this contemporary novel and I’m already looking forward to whatever she writes next. Rites of Passage combines a few of my favorite things: strong females, forbidden romance, and a school setting.  And it just so happens that all three […]

Gates of Thread and Stone is a strong debut from Lori M. Lee and a wonderful start to a new fantasy series.  It’s got a little something for all readers and I think it’s a great introduction to fantasy if that’s not a genre you’re familiar with. The story starts off strong and continues that […]

My Last Kiss by Bethany Neal | Review

My Last Kiss by Bethany Neal |..

Bethany Neal’s debut novel, My Last Kiss, was not at all what I expected.  It had a lot of potential to be an awesome story but it fell flat in a lot of areas.  I enjoyed it enough to read it through but this one may not be for everyone. My Last Kiss has a […]

Vivian Divine Is Dead by Lauren Sabel | Review

Vivian Divine Is Dead by Laure..

Posted June 16, 2014 by Kaitlynn in review / 2 Comments

Vivian Divine is Dead is a unique addition to the young adult contemporary suspense genre. Lauren Sabel crafted a very twisted mystery that left me guessing until the very end. It’s not often that I’m unable to figure things out but that was definitely the case with this one. Vivian Divine is a spoiled rotten […]

Open Road Summer by Emery Lord | Review

Open Road Summer by Emery Lord..

Posted June 11, 2014 by Kaitlynn in review / 4 Comments

Open Road Summer is a book after my own heart.  Emery Lord’s debut novel is everything a contemporary lover could want in a book.  It’s a novel of friendship, fame, family, and love and it hits the right notes on every one of those subjects.  And did I mention Matt Finch?  No?  Well don’t worry, […]

I’m not sure where to even start with Prisoner of Night and Fog.  This is definitely going to be one of those reviews that can’t even come close to doing justice to how amazing the book is.  Anne Blankman’s debut novel has me eager to check out anything else she ever plans to write. First […]

The Murder Complex is Lindsay Cummings’ debut novel and the start of what promises to be an awesome new dystopian series.  The characters, the story, and the pulse pounding action make for a thrilling read. Meadow is a strong female character who knows how to take care of herself.  Her dad raised her so that […]

Sekret (Sekret #1) by Lindsay ..

Posted May 29, 2014 by Kaitlynn in review / 4 Comments

I picked up Sekret, Lindsay Smith’s debut novel, hoping for a good historical novel with some hints of intrigue and romance.  What I got was something so much better!  Lindsay Smith puts a whole new spin on the Cold War and spies both Russia and the United States. The characters really make Sekret so amazing.  Each […]
