Review: 45 Pounds (More or Less) by K.A. Barson

July 25, 2013 Reviews 4 ★★★★★

I was only on page two when I decided I liked Ann. Right off the bat, she was realistic and relatable. Pretty much the entire time I was reading, I was going “Yup!” “Yes!!” “Mmhmm!” “Been there, thought that.” I mean, I could go on and on. I literally took… Read more »

Review: Second Chance by Heather Brewer

July 7, 2013 Reviews 0 ★★★★★

Once again, Heather Brewer has written an amazing and entertaining book. I’ve grown to really care about Joss as a character and as a person. You really don’t get to know him in The Chronicles of Vladimir Tod – All we know if he’s trying to kill Vlad, and we… Read more »

I’ve been a Minion (term for fans of Heather Brewer and the Chronicles of Vladimir Tod series) since Eighth Grade Bites (Vladimir Tod #1) came out in 2007. So, forever, basically.

Review: The Last Echo by Kimberly Derting

July 3, 2013 Reviews 0 ★★★★★

*Review may contain spoilers.* The Last Echo was, by far, the best book in The Body Finder series. It had a little bit of a darker feel to it. I could tell almost right away that it had a more ominous tone, and I knew something terrible was going to… Read more »

Review: Desires of the Dead by Kimberly Derting

Review: Desires of the Dead by Kimberly Derting

June 30, 2013 Reviews 0 ★★★

The description, as with the first book, intrigued me. The premise of Desires of the Dead is simple: Violet has drawn unwanted attention from the FBI, and now she must play a game of cat and mouse to keep her “morbid secret ability” a secret. Unfortunately, Desires of the Dead… Read more »

Review: The Body Finder by Kimberly Derting

June 29, 2013 Reviews 8 ★★★★

This book really caught my eye when I first picked it up in the bookstore. The words “morbid secret ability” intrigued me. I’m used to reading about vampires, witches, werewolves, and ghosts. So right away, I knew this was going to be different than anything I’d ever read (thus far)…. Read more »
