Guest Blog Post: The Best Little (Nerdy) Bookstore in Queens, by Author Kendra L. Saunders

Enigma Bookstore in Astoria, Queens is still a relatively new bookstore, but it has the friendly presence of a neighbor you’ve known your whole life. Amid a selection of seemingly hand-picked fantasy, sci-fi and graphic novel titles, you can find anything and everything that your inner nerd bookworm might desire. In my opinion, though, the […]

Book Review: The Kelpie, by T.J. Wooldridge

I loved T.J. Wooldridge’s take on the Scottish water horse myth. Although this is a middle grade novel, I found myself wrapped up in it, eager to turn the next page. The Kelpie, by T.J. Wooldridge is a winner! Heather and Joe –Prince Joseph to be exact, set out on an adventure to discover why […]

Fantasy Friday! Book Review: A Perpetual Mimicry, by K.P. Ambroziak

  “What would you give, my friend, to regain your star?”  I wish I could see inside the mind of K.P. Ambroziak. I love the stories and characters she creates. She is an AMAZING author.

Book Review: The Enlightening, by Adrianne James

Wow… I went through this book like a whirlwind, and devoured it within one afternoon. I LOVED it, even more than the first (and that one is hard to beat).

Book Review: Celeste by V.C. Andrews

When I saw Celeste by V.C. Andrews on my local libraries book shelf, nostalgia flooded my heart. I haven’t read her books since I was a pre-teen. Most people don’t know, but Andrews died in 1986… A ghost writer, who Andrews selected prior to her death, has written 40+ novels under her name since, all […]

Book Review: The Reflections of Queen Snow White, by David C. Meredith

This story intrigued me and held my interest from page one. This isn’t the Snow White fairy tale your parents read to you as a child… Rather, this Snow White is moody, troubled, and depressed.

Book Review: Rise of the Deva’shi: A Chronicle of Parthalan, by Jennifer Allis Provost

Rise of the Deva’shi is an epic fantasy romance written by Jennifer Allis Provost. I thoroughly enjoyed this story, from page one to last, and really hope that this isn’t the end of the Chronicles of Parthalan. I am really interested in hearing the next story! The released story before this is “Heir to the […]

Book Review: Copper Girl, By Jennifer Allis Provost

I was lucky enough to get an advanced release copy of this book and let me tell you, I REALLY enjoyed this story! And this is coming from someone who has absolutely no interest in fantasy books. It was just that good. The story centers around a young woman named Sara. She works at an […]

Book Review: The Coldest Girl in Coldtown

The Coldest Girl In Coldtown is a love letter to all of Holly Black’s favorite vampire books. I purchased it at her book release party at the Odyssey Bookshop in South Hadley, MA.

Book Review: Dust and Decay, by Jonathan Maberry

Dust and Decay is the second book by Jonathan Maberry in the Benny Imura adventure series. However, it does work as a stand alone, as I did not read the story before this one and was able to jump right into it. First of all, wow, what a book! I absolutely loved it! Even though […]

Book Review: Black Heart, by Holly Black

Black Heart by Holly Black is the last book in the Curse Workers series.

Cassel Sharpe has the ability to transform objects and people […]

Book Review: Red Glove, by Holly Black

Red Glove is the follow up book to Holly Black’s “White Cat”. Like the first book, it is based on curses, cons, magic, and a catastrophic love. “White Cat” ended with Cassel’s mother ‘gifting’ him with tricking his crush Lila into loving him. This gift comes at a cost, because Cassel’s conscience eats him alive […]

Cassel comes from a family of Curse Workers; people who have the amazing power to change your feelings with the the touch of their bare hands. They can change your memories, your luck, and your state of mind, and because of this they are very powerful and feared by regular citizens. This practice is also […]

Book Review: Call of the Jersey Devil, by Aurelio Voltaire

** spoiler alert ** I absolutely loved Call of the Jersey Devil, by Aurelio Voltaire. It actually made me miss being a teenager. I identified so much with the character Prudence. It was a wonderful read… Five goth kids head over to a poorly promoted festival/concert featuring a washed up goth singer, Villy Bats. When […]

Book Review: The Raven Boys, by Maggie Steifvater

I am not a YA reader by any stretch of the imagination, and my 2 star rating for this book reflects my opinions on YA books in general. With that being said, it was hard for me to get through this story. However, that doesn’t mean the story itself wasn’t interesting; just that it didn’t […]

Book Review: Death and Mr. Right

*** WARNING: CONTAINS SPOILERS *** Death and Mr. Right, by Kendra Saunders, is a dark-romantic-comedy that I was lucky enough to get an advanced release copy of from a friend.
