Review of #32 Dark Genesis by Dave Ferraro

Dark Genesis is AWESOME! and so is Dave Ferraro.

Throw in a parallel universe, supernatural beings, kick-ass lead female character and evil villains to the mix and you will get a Dark Genesis cake. :D

I know,  I'm cheesy like that but seriously, Dark Genesis is worth the midnight oil.

Dark Genesis grips you from the very beginning and kept slapping you with shock after shock.
The storyline is fantastic and fresh that you will not get bored at all.

I am in love with the main character because she is so strong and determined even though she has lost her memories.

Not only that, the connection between the main character and her entourage that she picks up along the story makes this book one of the best book I've ever read.

There is no doubt that Dave is in my favourite authors list.


Review of #31 Surface by Tiffany Daune

'Surface' grips your attention from the very beginning.
This is because its filled with action, mystery and suspense.

The beginning is really good because it made made me feel as if I'm hanging off the edge of the cliff.
It made me question a lot of things and 'Surface' really got my attention.

I love how Tiffany gave a twist to the whole mermaid-siren thing, the idea is fresh and its good.

However, I didn't really get the chemistry  between Theia and Luc. Their love was so sudden, it made me stumble. It'll be really great if there's more suspense between them because readers could really see the chemistry between them grow into a beautiful thing.

The setting, which is in the sea, are not really explored. 
Hopefully, the second book will be better in terms of the description of the setting and the chemistry between all characters.

All in all, 'Surface' is a wonderful read.


Review of #30 The Legend of The Blue Eyes by B. Kristin McMichael

Another great book by B. Kristin McMichael!!

If you haven't read the review of "To Stand Beside Her" , click this.

The Legend of The Blue Eyes is the first book of The Blue Eyes Trilogy.
I have to say, this is a great read.

I love that the story is absolutely original and I want to give a huge a round of applause because the author actually took the time to craft the 'people' meaning The Tengu, Baku, Dearg-Du and Lycan ( Lycan in this story are sort of a type of vampires) clans.

I love how all these different clans are somehow interconnected with one another.

However, the author did not really explore the main character. I could see the carefully crafted minor characters but Arianna is kind of a mystery to me.

Hopefully, the next book will be better in terms of character advancement.

Overall, 'The Legend of Blue Eyes' is a great read.
 I  can't wait for book 2!



Review of #29 To Stand Beside Her by B. Kristin McMichael

I love love LOVE this book!

The content is original, the writing style is awesome and easy to understand.

I fell in love with Leila straight away because she is kick-ass and humorous.
I hated King Nalick at first because I was looking at Leila's point of view. But as her point of view changed towards Nalick, I started to like Nalick's character.

I love how the author is able to bring me and my imagination to this beautiful ride called, To Stand Beside Her.

Leila is one of best strong female characters I've ever seen because the author presented her as someone with a specific skill set.

Not only that, the other characters were also perfectly woven into the story.

To Stand Beside Her promises an engaging read, filled with the ups and downs of human life, loyalty, love and death.

Selina. :D

#46 Wish You Were Here by Catherine Chant

She's out of place.

He's out of time.

In 1956, Joey Tempo was the biggest sensation to hit Memphis since Elvis Presley. Within twelve months he was gone--killed in a transatlantic plane crash.

Half a century later, Callie Reinard is headed for college and her dream career in radio broadcasting. When she discovers Joey’s iconic first album, she’s mysteriously drawn to his tragic story. A profound desire to change his fate invokes a mystical force that sends her back to 1957 to “make things right.”

What Callie doesn’t expect is her meddling to make everything worse…much worse. Joey may be glad to be alive, but not everyone welcomes her presence. Especially not Joey’s glamorous fiancée, who has her own plans for his future.

Every second Callie spends in the past she’s altering much more than Joey’s fate. She’s changing the lives of everyone around her. And she’s growing closer to Joey by the minute.

If Callie can’t find a way back to her own time soon, she may lose more than a college education and the career she’s always wanted. She may lose her heart to a boy she can’t have.

#45 Easy "A" (Magic School U.S.A. #1) by Charlie Fey

Richard "Vegas" Beltran is an underachiever. That's bad for any student, but it's especially bad when you go to a wizardry school. Black Magic is something to be taken very seriously, but Vegas has been caught smoking "eye of newt" in the boys' bathroom, and all of his bubbling cauldrons contain ice and alcohol...

The principal, Professor Diaz, is ready to drop Vegas into a slower-paced magic class. But Vegas would rather die, Houdini-style, in a botched escape act than have to suffer through "remedial magic."

After all, Vegas only came to Absolution Academy, school for the "Paranormal Sciences," to learn a spell that would bring his girlfriend, Katherine, back from the DEAD.

Unfortunately, now that his tuition's been paid, he finds that resurrecting the dead is an act of Godslaughter--a forbidden form of magic--and at Absolution Academy, an illegal activity.
But "illegal" is a funny word... one among many that Vegas doesn't seem to know the meaning of...

**Easy A**

Vegas is determined to find the spell he needs to bring his beloved back from the DEAD. His teachers warn him that it's a criminal act. Haters are motivators, and Vegas is sure he'll be able to do what even his teachers CAN'T.

He strikes up a deal with creepy professor Allen Allens. If Vegas survives one night of "detention" in Dr. Allens torture chamber, Allen Allens will give Vegas a spell book that contains the spell he needs.

...The forbidden Resurrection spell...

And if Vegas doesn't pass the evil Doctor's death trap for teenagers? He can choose between being Allens' gorgeous young sex slave or face the cold grip of DEATH.

...Death is the better deal.

It's all or nothing for Richard Beltran and if he dies at least he'll never have to eat that sh*tty school cafeteria food ever again...


This is the FULL VERSION of "American Magic School: Tricks of the Trade", published under the name of the dead comedy writer that possesses me, "Charlie Fey".

It’s just one of many secrets they have yet to discover about themselves.

#42 The Cadence by Casey Hays

Hey everybody!! Check out The Cadence down below.

I believe the cover could be better. I believe in first impressions.

Emma King’s life is fairly ordinary, with the exception of one extraordinary aspect. She is plagued with the rare ability to feel a person's emotions with a simple touch. Any sensation she feels becomes amplified to almost unbearable levels. Emma has learned to keep her hands to herself and her emotions under wraps.​

But when quiet, good-looking Gage Parmer moves to town, everything changes, and for the first time in her life, Emma loosens the chains that hold her emotions in check and prepares herself for the whirlwind that is to come. Mysteriously lacking in emotions, Gage tells Emma an incredible story that pulls her into his world of impossibilities. At first, she refuses to believe. But when she puts his words to the test, she discovers that his world is also hers. ​

Soon she will be forced to use her ability in an attempt to destroy an ancient evil that has defied death and ruled the centuries in a reign of terror.

They are called… The Cadence.​​

In the end, she has only one weapon and one chance to defeat the Cadence, break their circle of power, and restore hope.

#41 Reprobate - A Katla Novel (Amsterdam Assassin Series, #1) by Martyn V.Halm

The synopsis is so eye-catching! I can't wait to read it. :D

Blessed with an almost non-existent conscience, Katla Sieltjes, expert in disguising homicide, views assassination as an intricate and rewarding occupation. Hidden behind her male alter ego Loki, Katla receives anonymous assignments, negotiates the terms with clients through electronic means, all to protect her identity. Her solitary existence satisfies her until she meets a blind musician whose failure to notice a ‘closed’ sign causes him to wander in on Katla’s crime scene. And Katla breaks one of her most important rules - never leave a living witness.

Recovering alcoholic Deborah Stern reluctantly re-enlists with the DEA as a liaison in The Hague, where her language skills are valued to counter suspected sabotage by Dutch law enforcement officials. After a U.S. Army officer dies on a German NATO base from a heroin/cocaine overdose, the trail leads to Amsterdam. The DEA and the Dutch IPOL launch a joint undercover operation, but not everyone is playing by the same rules.

Reprobate is the first novel in the Amsterdam Assassin Series. With authentic details and fast-paced action, featuring an uncompromising heroine and a supporting cast of unusual characters, Reprobate gives a rare glimpse in the local Dutch culture, information on the famous Dutch capital, the narcotics trade, computer hacking, motorcycle gangs, mehndi bridal tattoos, martial arts, and the brutal effectiveness of disciplined violence.

Review of #28 Blue Hearts of Mars by Nicole Grotepas


I admit, Blue Hearts of Mars took me by surprise.

The world of Blue Hearts of Mars is beautiful. The settings (Mars), characters, the interactions and the beautiful chemistry between Retta and Hemingway made me fell in love with this book instantly.

Blue Hearts of Mars is a much better read than Twilight.
No offense to all Twi-Hearts fans out there but Blue Hearts does not have cheeky, glittery vampire boys.
Its all android with human feelings and red hearts....
Which is awesome.
Plus, the cover is SUPERB!

The relationship between Retta and Hemingway was so beautifully spun, I can't help but keep reading it. The midnight oil that I burned was definitely worth it.

"Blue Hearts of Mars is undeniably a great piece of art, beautifully spun with a touch of dystopia, romance and happy ending."

Nicole Grotepas is definitely on my favourite authors list.


Review of #27 Echo by Alicia Wright Brewster


Warning: This one sentence might make you feel the intense urge to read Echo.

Imagine...the WORLD won't END if YOU DIE.
Well, I am!
This book is great!

I really admire Ashara (The Main Character) because she did not start out as the typical kickass heroine.
She's mortal and ordinary.

Alicia had a great and original idea. The twists in the story is absolutely wonderful.

I really enjoyed the pace of the story, the sadness and tragedy, the chemistry and the abilities that the people had.

Its a great and scary world to live in but Echo has the perfect setting for the storyline to unravel.

Its awesome.


Review of #26 Revival (The Variant Series) by Jena Leigh

Oh my gosh,
This book is seriously awesome.
It blew my mind with all the thrill, suspense, and the peek-a-boo romance within its pages.

It is absolutely, unbelievably GOOD!

I love the writing style and the way Jena brought in the character to the story.
The whole twist and turn of the storyline was unexpected.
There's a lot of laughter and it made my tummy hurt in a good way.

In addition,
It was a page turn from the beginning till the end.

My favourite characters in the book?
Alex and Declan!!
Love the chemistry between them.

Thank you, Jena for providing the opportunity for me to read your book.
The time taken to read it was absolutely worth it.

You are definitely in my favourite author's list.

Selina. :D

#35 The Phantom Squadron Series by Don A. Martinez

There are no synopsis available for the first book. Sorry!

Over the course of history, a team of four supernatural agents has been assembled for a Black Ops team unlike any other.
The Guardsman : ageless paladin knight.
Cyrus Salem: immortal shrinking wizard.
Kitty Lazarus: woman warrior in a cat's body.
Ariel Vibria: modern dragon with a tortured soul.
Both separately and together, these agents will face down an enemy of immense evil, with the fate of the world itself possibly in the balance, rising above their differences and individual traumas and coming together to face Sheol, a demonic matriarch hiding within one of the holiest sites in Europe.
Each agent has his own concerns. Is being the Guardsman worth the sacrifice of childhood Ken Sharpe made to be the paladin? Will Cyrus continue to shrink throughout history? What purpose does the Hindu god Durga have for Kitty? What will happen if the secretive government project that produced Ariel comes to search for their missing experiment?
Do they have a chance against Sheol?

The United States is no more. The New Empire of America holds power now.

The people of the former U.S.A now live in the "glory" of President-for-Life Carleton Regent, his wife and Vice President Jennifer, and the immensely powerful Supernatural Suppression Agency.

Their goal: eliminate all supernaturals!

A victim of the SSA's purges is Alanna Sharpe, now missing her supernatural parents Ariel and Cole. Summoned by her parents' former ally Gabe Francis, she takes the burden of her Sharpe birthright ... the Sword of the Guardsman.

Gabe presents Alanna with a quest. To save her parents, she must bring down the New Empire of America!

Alanna pushes forth against the SSA and its field commander, General Tyrelius Scolar. But will Alanna be prepared for the haunting secret behind the rise of Scolar, the SSA, and the New Empire?

Alanna Sharpe is going to Hell …

In hiding for half a year after discovering her father Cole Sharpe has become General Tyrelius Scolar, her feared enemy, she is brought back into the fold of the insurgency against the New Empire of America by Gabe Francis … a man she distrusts because of his habit of holding back vital information.

Her friends still support her in her mission to reunite her family, but that mission takes an unexpected turn when the insurgents capture Scolar. Gabe reveals to Alanna that Scolar is indeed Cole, but is also simply a body lacking its original soul, that of her father.

In a quiet moment, alone with the comatose body, Alanna catches snippets of a message.

“Find me …”

The search for her father’s soul will cross over many planes of existence, from the world of the living to the mystical realm of Avalon, ultimately leading into the Inferno of Hell. Led through the many circles of damnation by a former family enemy-turned-guide, Alanna must now endure all of Hell’s torments and follow her father’s path if she ever wants to be reunited with him.

To have any chance of reuniting her family, Alanna must bring her father back from damnation’s grasp.


#34 Out by Laura Preble

In a society where “perpendiculars,” opposite-sex couples, are forbidden, persecuted, freakish...Chris Bryant, a preacher’s son, finds himself in love...with a girl.

Chris has always been faithful to his Anglicant religion – even though he’s never felt like everyone else, never felt...parallel. And then it happens: he meets her. Carmen. Daughter of one of the leading Perpendicular prosecutors...the girl he knows he can’t live without.

Carmen has always thought the treatment of Perps is barbaric – but to actually be one? To fall in love with Chris and openly admit to it is suicide.

Their only chance to be together is the Underground, a secret society Chris’s sister introduces him to that is determined to mount an attack against the social restrictions of the Anglicant church.

They want to make an example of Chris and Carmen, two Perps from high social families, to become the catalyst for an uprising that will threaten the traditions of their society’s families and church.

But the cost of involvement just might be death for them both.

#33 Deadgirl by B.C. Johnson

"You know how it is: go on a date, get killed, wake up the next morning. No? Just me?" - Lucy Day

Fifteen-year-old Lucy Day falls between the gears in the machinery of the afterlife. She is murdered while on her first date, but awakens a day later, completely solid and completely whole. She has no hunger for brains, blood, or haunting, so she crosses “zombie,” “vampire,” and “ghost” off her list of re-life possibilities. But figuring out what she is becomes the least of her worries when Abraham, Lucy’s personal Grim Reaper, begins dogging her, dead-set on righting the error that dropped her back into the spongy flesh of a living girl.

Lucy must put her mangled life back together, escape re-death, and learn to control her burgeoning psychic powers while staying one step ahead of Abraham. But when she learns the devastating price of coming back from the dead, Lucy is forced to make the hardest decision of her re-life—a decision that could save her loved ones...or kill them.

#32 Dark Genesis by Dave Ferraro

Alyssa opened her eyes to darkness. And in the first flash of light provided by a gathering storm, she could make out a ring of bodies surrounding her.

With no memory of who she is, Alyssa stumbles into a dark world populated by witches. The witches are powerful, and demonstrate frightening powers, but even more terrifying are the monsters who rule over the land. Vampires, werewolves and other awful creatures of the night have taken over, forcing the witches behind stone walls, afraid to venture outdoors. But Alyssa finds that as she kills certain monsters, memories return to her, memories of a life on Earth, and the boy she left behind.

The quest to collect her memories and piece together the puzzle of what has happened to her is a daunting one, with betrayals and sacrifices every step of the way. But Alyssa is determined to fight for a world that is not her own, destroying powerful monsters along the way, so that she can return home to the boy she is coming to love through the memories she recollects.

Hidden beneath the rolling waves lies the secret to Theia’s past and as she unveils each haunting truth, she realizes the last seventeen years of her life have been a lie. Now, drawn into a mysterious new world and with nowhere to turn, Theia must place her trust in Luc, a beautiful boy who stops her heart with each dazzling smile, but even his unearthly charm can’t hide the truth—he has secrets— dark secrets binding him to his world—an underwater world where Theia will never belong—a world determined to destroy her soul.  

#30 The Legend of The Blue Eyes by B. Kristin McMichael

Arianna Grace liked her boring, Midwestern, teenage life where she ignored the many unanswered questions of her childhood. Why were her parents dead? Why did she not have family? Where was she raised until she was five? When someone offers to explain it all, Arianna thinks she’s just getting answers. Instead, she is thrown into a world of night humans who drink blood.

On Arianna's sixteenth birthday, her world is thrown upside down when she changes into a vampire. Night humans, or demons, as some call them, live in normal society. Learning all of the new rules of a world she didn’t know existed might be hard enough, but it's further complicated by two former-friends that now want to help her take her role as the successor to her grandfather.

There is a war going on between the night humans. Sides have been taken and lines are not crossed. Four main clans of night humans are struggling for control of the night. Divided into two sides, clans Baku and Tengu have been at war for centuries with the clans Dearg-dul and Lycan. That is, until Arianna Grace finds out the truth; she’s the bridge of peace between the two sides. But not everyone wants peace. With the night humans divided, Arianna is now a pawn in the war between them. She must choose a side—her mother’s family or her father’s—and for once in her life, decide her own fate.


#29 To Stand Beside Her by B. Kristin McMichael

Review of#25 Darkness of Morning by Samantha Boyette

Like I said, Darkness of Morning is the second installment of The Guardian of Morning Series.

It picks up really well from the first book and I love how Samantha explores the character in more ways.

Throughout the story, I really hated Dylan/ Morning because she was such a jealous bitch but I guess it wasn't really her fault. I believe a writer is good if you can actually bring out emotions from the readers so, cheers!

I love Kara because she's strong and she maintained her cool throughout the story. There was only a part where she was freaking pissed but it was expected of her.

The settings are good and suspense is GREAT.

Why oh why did you put the suspense at the end. It's SLOWLY KILLING ME but what's a book without suspense, eh?

Thank you Samantha for allowing me to review your book. It was absolutely divine.
Do let me review your third copy. I LOVE LOVE LOVE your series. :D


Review of #24 By My Side by Stephanie Witter

By My Side is a story of the bittersweet love between two people whose life is irrevocably changed.

The Main Character, Lily has a personality that I admire. She's strong, fun, albeit sarcastic but she uses her sarcastic side to protect herself.

Its a great read because Stephanie fully explored the character and the chemistry between Lily and Gabe.

Both has been giving sarcastic remarks for years and hated each other but the way Stephanie brings those two different yet same people made this book a fantastic read.

By My Side is a mixture of jealousy, death and abandonment and how both these characters went through the changes in their lives.

Stephanie, you're awesome. :D

Review of #23 Dystopia by Janet McNulty

I wish there are better words to describe how much I love this book.


I love how the storyline glides from the starting to the end and the way the author describes the characters and the settings of the book.

I love the main character, Dana because she is headstrong, strong and stubborn.
I love how she tackled the challenges she faced but I was sad because someone close to her died in the story.

I love everything about the dystopia world, the existence of the evil government and the 'resistance group' fighting for the rights of true freedom.

I wish I have a true paperback copy of this book. :D

The ending was PURE SUSPENSE!!
Why oh why did you end it like that??? I'm so freaking curious about the end.

If there's book 2, I would love to get my hands on it. Hehehe.

Thank you, Janet for giving me a chance to review your book. It was a pleasure.


Review of #22 The Torturer's Daughter by Zoe Cannon

First of all, I love how the dystopian society formed a world filled with fear of dissidents.
Zoe Cannon definitely instilled fear in all of her characters, making them follow the status quo and such.
It is very fascinating to read Becca's perspective and her relationship with her mother, which is a torturer.

Not only that, Becca's world was literally turned upside down and it made her question everything she knew in her world.
Heck, it even made me question everyone's motives.

She had a hard time figuring things out and her constant fear of dissidents made her paranoid about everything.

I really like the way Zoe Cannon explored Becca's character because the elements of human nature are definitely explored and the way she describes Becca's fabric of reality being torn apart was super good.

I didn't really like the ending but the ending was truly explosive.
I'd never expected Becca to make that kind of decision but I really admire her.

All in all, expect love, betrayal, sadness, loyalty and hatred in The Torturer's Daughter.


Review of #21 Aurora by Marina Latcko

It is true that Aurora is one of a kind.

I like the storyline but the plot is a bit jumpy.
I get lots of confusion at some parts but I'm able to decipher it. (Hehe)
I don't really like the main character because she has a shallow personality and I thought that she will grow more mature as the story progresses but unfortunately, she didn't.

I love the other characters and the settings are good.
However, the writing style....makes the storyline hard to get across to the readers' mind.

I had a hard time figuring out things but I believe that with more practice, this book will be a great read.

Thank you Marina for the chats and the book.
Keep writing!



Review #20 Phantasma by Penelope Reece

Penelope!!! You're awesome!!!
I love love love love LOVE Phantasma!
Its a great read and I finished this in an hour. HOUR!!
I love Alphie and I was kinda shocked because she wasn't really human.
I liked the fact that Alphie and Noer are the same.
I was frustrated with the starting because I couldn't really understand some of the parts because it wasn't really clear.

However, as the story progresses, the writing style is much clearer, the characters have depth and I love and fear the setting of Limbo.

It was absolutely terrifying and I love how the storyline went from shock after shock.

Thank you Penelope for allowing me to review your book.
I would love to review your other books. :D
They sound awesome.



Review of #19 Karmic by Denise Mathew

One word to describe the theme of the book, HUMOR.
It is absolutely funny and fun to read.

I seriously love all the characters especially Al (He is not the main character) because his spelling sucks and the way Denise describes him made me grin.

It has a great storyline, a steady plot, kick-ass Karma and awesome characters.

I'm in love with all of Denise's books which is of different types of genre. She can WRITE!!

Luke (The Main Character) is awesome and I find myself frustrated with him like how Daria feels.
High five, girl.

This was a great journey.
Thank you for bringing me there. :D

Review of #18 The Crush (Book One) by Denise Mathew

The Crush is another awesome book written by Denise Mathew.
I am absolutely in love with the world that Denise created.

I am also in love with the apocalypse theme and how the world changed when all the plastics in the world disintegrate and formed Vapour which killed a lot of people.

The Vapourcalypse, (:D) changed the world in so many ways and two different groups were formed.

I love the characters, settings and plot because there were many in-depth exploration of the characters and the plot is filled with suspense, love and tragic but brutal death.
My cup of tea. hehe

Its a great book and I wish to see the world in a movie.
It'll be a super great material. :D

Thank you again, Denise. The Crush is SUPERB!


Review of #17 Grey Boy by Denise Mathew

Grey Boy is a touching story because it made me think of human nature.
There is no doubt that people will judge you in ways you can't imagine, especially if you're the son of a suspected murderer.
I was moved by both major characters in the story because they're background is almost the same and the way Denise collided both of their worlds was so unique that you can't help but fall in love with the characters, settings and plot.

Both characters have a tragic past but somehow they helped each other to overcome the challenges.

Grey Boy is definitely a book filled with a suspense, love, hate and betrayal.
I love love love this book.

Thank you Denise for allowing me to review your book. It was absolutely touching and it taught me something new about life.


Review of #16 Breathe by Elena Dillon

Breathe is absolutely wonderful.

Breathe is absolutely breathtaking, bringing me to a journey filled with suspense, horror and love.
It really made me picture the world in different ways and the changes in someone's life after a terrible incident.

Breathe is absolutely beautiful yet terrifying at the same time.

I'm awed with Jasmine (The Main Character) because she tried her best to stay strong despite the challenges. Not only that, I love the way Elena spins her characters in such a way that you can't help but fall in love with all of them.

The plot is great, filled with great suspense and has a final bang.

Of course, who doesn't like a happy ending?
I do. :D

Thank you, Elena for allowing me the wonderful pleasure of reading your book. It was absolutely thrilling. :D


Review of #15 Kindred (Night School Vampire Hunter Novella #2) by Michelle Cornwell-Jordan

This is the second book of The Night School Vampire Hunter Novella.
 Like I said in my last review, I Love Love Love This series.
There's more information on the other minor characters and I LOVE them.
Angel is definitely mature now as she is owning up to her powers and the love *sigh* for Rafael is pretty intense.
It made me go lovey dovey. hehes!

Angel fought for her brother even though she found out it wasn't really her brother.

Rafael turns out to be exactly like Jacob Black but screw it. I love this series.

The phantom little girl is absolutely terrifying.

I'm definitely looking forward to the next installment so I can see Angel kick more evil butts. :D

Thank you Michelle for allowing me to review your book. Do send me a copy once #3 comes out. :D
I would love to review it!


Review of #14 Night School Vampire Hunter Novella by Michelle Cornwell-Jordan

I love love love this series!

I really like how Michele tells the story through Angel's (Dasheen - The Main Character) blog.
However, I don't really understand some parts of the story because it wasn't really fully explored and there's no further or in depth information.

I really like the setting of the story and the characters but I don't really get a sense of the other minor characters in the story.

Its short and straight to the point but it lacks suspense. :D

All in all, its good and there's room for more improvement.

Thank you Michele for allowing me to review your book!!
I really appreciate it. :)


Review of #13 Shadow of The Wolf by S. M. Pace

Shadow of The Wolf is definitely a great read.
I didn't really like the main character, Toby, at first but in the story, you can see the transitions that Toby's character made.
He was stronger and believed in himself. 
I was really happy that I reviewed this because the world in which Toby lives in scary and undeniably unexpected.
The relationship between Toby, his powers and his sister's connection to everything is staggering.
I love how the story fits the theme of fear and the supernatural. Not only that, the ending is sad but beautiful.

All in all, I'm really glad to have the opportunity to read this book.

Thank you, S.M. Pace. :D


Review of #12 Transcend by Christine Fonseca

Hey everyone!!

I'm so sorry that I haven't been updating my blog. There were some problems with my internet so I was catching up with all the books so I can write my review here.

So, here it is!

Transcend is sad, shocking and beautiful.
It took me to a journey filled with horror and I really pity Ien.
It literally took me by surprise when I read it till the ending. Its similar to the Phantom of The Opera yet its not.
The confusion, the love triangle, the miscommunication, the heartbreak and death signifies this book.
Its definitely dark and terrible but in the end, I am in love with this book.
From the cover to the contents of the book, it is remarkably good.
My cup of tea. :D

Thank you, Christine for letting me review your book.
It was an honor.
