Paper and Fire – Rachel Caine

Paper and Fire – Rachel Caine

  I am an unabashed Rachel Cain lover. I have enjoyed everything I have read of hers and I was beyond excited to read her latest, Paper and Fire. The first in this series, Ink and Bone was one of my favorite books of 2015 (see my review here) so […]

The Dig – John Preston

The Dig – John Preston

I had vaguely heard of the Sutton Hoo discovery when I requested this book. But I liked the synopsis of a retelling of an important historical discovery. Kindof like Indiana Jones in book form. Well The Dig was not Temple of Doom, but it was a fast, fun read that […]

The Martian – Andy Weir

The Martian – Andy Weir

The Martian had been languishing on my Kindle since January 2015. I kept hearing about it and the movie. I was determined to at least read it before seeing the movie, but nope didn’t happen. I really enjoyed the movie and needed to get to the book. But did I? […]

Don’t Get Caught – Kurt Dinan

Don’t Get Caught – Kurt Dinan

Don’t Get Caught is a fun read. Pranks, clueless school admins and crushes all combine for a genuinely good read. Max is an average guy, 2.5 GPA, not into parties, nothing special. So when he gets an invite to the exclusive and secret Chaos Club he wonders why. But then he thinks why […]

Black Widow Forever Red – Margaret Stohl

Black Widow Forever Red – Margaret Stohl

I am the odd one in my family. I am not a comic book/graphic novel fan. I enjoy the movies and have collectables of certain characters (Gambit, Harley Quinn, and Deadpool), but have never really gotten into the reads. My hubs and two kiddos, however are super into comics. My eleven-year-old […]

Firstlife – Gena Showalter

Firstlife – Gena Showalter

Oh Gena, you have done it again. Great action, great characters and a gripping and unique plot. Firstlife has been on my radar for months and I was trying to patiently wait for publication. Then I got it and had to wait as I had some other reads scheduled first. When I was […]

This Is Where It Ends – Marieke Nijkamp

This Is Where It Ends – Marieke Nijkamp

This is Where it Ends was on my list of most eagerly awaited 2016 debuts. I heard about it in fall of 2015 and requested it on both Netgalley and Edelweiss. I did not receive it on either, so I grabbed it for my Kindle once it was released. I […]

The Impostor Queen – Sarah Fine

The Impostor Queen – Sarah Fine

How have I not heard of Sarah Fine before! I feel so cheated that this is the first book of hers I have read. The Impostor Queen was glorious. A magical world where copper runs through the land and imbues the residents with fire and ice magic, a girl whom […]
