My Soul to Take by Rachel Vincent

This book and I have a bit of a history. I bought My Soul to Take and tried to read it when it first came out. After trying (and failing) a few times I decided that it just wasn’t for me and never really gave it much thought afterwards. Then I started hearing a lot of positive buzz about subsequent books in the series and my interest was piqued once more. I […]

Naked by Kevin Brooks

Naked is the first Kevin Brooks book I’ve read but it will definitely not be the last. This was a raw, exciting novel set in the burgeoning world of punk.

Graveyard Child by M.L.N. Hanover

Graveyard Child is the fifth (and final?) installment in The Black Sun’s Daughter series.

I have been eagerly awaiting this book after the ending of Killing Rites left off on such a pivotal cliffhanger. This book picks up pretty much where the last one ended with Jayné, […]

Counterfeit Son by Elaine Marie Alphin

Counterfeit Son is a really hard book to rate and review. It is a very dark story and the subject matter is deeply disturbing. I cannot say I enjoyed reading it but I was definitely riveted. It was very short so I ended up reading it in a single sitting but given the topic at hand it worked better as it was direct and to the point with no filler at […]
