Tempest by Julie Cross

Tempest by Julie Cross

Tempest is what I wanted Jumper to be. Jackson Meyer is a likable protagonist with extraordinary abilities. Shortly after his eighteenth birthday, he learned he could time travel. At first, it was a couple hours, and he only submitted a projection of himself. Then, suddenly, it is two years and Jackson is living in the past. The problem is, his abilities have taught him some strange things about his family, and he isn’t sure who he can trust. And for good reason – someone just shot his girlfriend. Trusting a friend from the future and trying to thwart the CIA […]

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince by J.K. Rowling

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince by J.K. Rowling

So many things have changed at Hogwarts. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is a complete turnaround from the angsty nightmare that was Order of the Phoenix.  There are EMOTIONS and it is BEAUTIFUL and character development happens and I LOVE IT. Half-Blood Prince is my favorite book after Prisoner of Azkaban.  There is so much going on, and a BIG adventure is starting, and THINGS ARE GETTING REALLY REALLY REAL.  I could go on and on about how this book is delicious and how Rowling is my Queen.  How the writing is perfect, the characters are perfect, the story is perfect, I […]

Eve by Anna Carey

Eve by Anna Carey

  Eve was a difficult book. I wanted to like it, but somehow, it didn’t add up.  Eve is about post-apoctaylptic America, after a plague has wiped out most of the population.  Orphans, in particular, have been subject to the cruel regime and have become servants to build and repopulate.  The boys start in when they are young, but the girls are raised in the shadow of false hope.  Eve, our main character, is the smartest girl at her school when by chance someone who hates her reveals the whole dastardly truth and not only does she manage to pretty […]

Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson

Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson

  Neverland is complicated. You have faeries running off to spy on 15-year-old girls, the same girls running off to run around the forest like a wild beast with a pack of boys, drunk pirates trying to kill said boys for no explained reason, and missionaries coming in to convince the tribe to bully their wonderful transgender shaman to deny who he is. This book is marketed as a love story between Peter Pan and Tiger Lily and I can feel the author trying to do that, but honestly? This is just a mess. It’s told in the POV of […]

Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine

Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine

  I remember checking Ella Enchanted out of my local library as a kid, and having a few very distinct impressions: There’s a centaur named Apple.  This stuck with me vividly.  I have no idea why. Ella was much too young for Char. BORED. As such, this was NOT my favorite little book growing up.  But then as a teenager, I saw the film, knew it was nothing like the book, and loved it.  I decided as an adult it needed a revisit… and I’m glad I did! Characters ❤︎ Ella is an adorable bundle of resilience and creativity.  I am not […]

Anna Dressed In Blood by Kendare Blake

Anna Dressed In Blood by Kendare Blake

  Cas Lockwood hunts and kills ghosts. Note:  he is NOT a Ghostbuster, he just kills ghosts.  He has no friends and he and his mother travel the world to take out ghosts that are killing the living.  Cas is a lone ranger and that’s the way he likes it.  This ghost, though?  “Anna Dressed in Blood”?  She catches his attention, and her mystery leads to friends and to the trail in destroying the spirit that killed his father. Ughhhhh. This book was not my favorite.  I’m going to try to give it as fair a review as I can. […]
