Mid-Week Muse: The Nightmare Affair

I LOVED this book.  Goodreads Blurb: Sixteen-year-old Dusty Everhart breaks into houses late at night, but not because she’s a criminal. No, she’s a Nightmare. Literally. Being the only Nightmare at Arkwell Academy, a boarding school for magickind, and living in the shadow of her mother’s infamy, is hard enough. But when Dusty sneaks into […]

Mid-Week Muse: Between Shades of Gray

If there’s one book that can reach deep down into your soul, make you weep and make you thankful for every blessed thing in your life, it’s BETWEEN SHADES OF GRAY. It’s a story about family and the spirit of community. At 15, Lina is such an amazing person. I don’t know if I would […]

TEMPEST

Goodreads blurb: The year is 2009. Nineteen-year-old Jackson Meyer is a normal guy… he’s in college, has a girlfriend… and he can travel back through time. But it’s not like the movies – nothing changes in the present after his jumps, there’s no space-time continuum issues or broken flux capacitors – it’s just harmless fun. […]

Under the Never Sky

Goodreads blurb: Since she’d been on the outside, she’d survived an Aether storm, she’d had a knife held to her throat, and she’d seen men murdered. This was worse. Exiled from her home, the enclosed city of Reverie, Aria knows her chances of surviving in the outer wasteland – known as The Death Shop – […]

Third Person that’s Like First

Have you ever read a book written in third person that feels like first? I have and it’s one interesting read. One of the reasons that most YA tends to be written in first person POV is because it’s immediate. You can connect to the character where as third tends to be distance. One of my […]

Between Shades of Gray

This is not the Twilight fanfic or some smn spin off. This book will take hold of your heart and not let go until the last page. Lina is just like any other fifteen-year-old Lithuanian girl in 1941. She paints, she draws, she gets crushes on boys. Until one night when Soviet officers barge into […]
