The Good Luck Girls by Charlotte Nicole Davis

I finished this book a couple of days ago but I needed some time to mull it over, to put my thoughts into order, and give The Good Luck Girls by Charlotte Nicole Davis the kind of review it merits. So what did I think of this book? I was conflicted but overall I loved it. Now, you might be asking yourself why I loved it if it also brought […]

The Traitor’s Crux by Jessica Prather

The Traitor’s Crux by Jessica Prather is a rare beast indeed. A book that weaves themes of magic and dystopia – two of my favourite genres so rarely mixed together. A young girl called Kenadee experiences a trauma as a child. Her elder brother Eli was discovered to have magic. He is taken away (possibly killed) by the evil President (think President Snow from the Hunger Games but even more diabolical). […]

After the cataclysmic events of the first book, Janelle is trying to pick up the pieces in a world that has gone to chaos. Still reeling after losing her father and best friend, Janelle […]

Yesterday by C.K. Kelly Martin

Yesterday by C. K. Kelly Martin was a slightly disappointing read for me. I have heard really good things about this author but I was not overly wowed by this book, though the writing was good and I would still consider checking out her other works. I really liked the idea behind this story but the execution of it fell little flat for me and I found the story to […]
