Review and Giveaway: Saving Lucas Biggs by Maria de los Santos and Davis Teague

Review and Giveaway: Saving Lucas Biggs by Maria de los Santos and Davis Teague

Confession: I don’t read much middle grade.  OK, any.  Including Harry Potter.  (I know, I KNOW.)  But I’m a sucker for a good time travel story, and I loved the synopsis of Saving Lucas Biggs, a book that proved to be both moving and thought-provoking. Margaret comes from a long line of time travelers.  When the story begins, her father has been sentenced to a death by the crooked judge, Lucas Biggs, for a murder he didn’t commit.  Margaret lives in Victory,… Read more »

Review and Giveaway: We Were Liars by E. Lockhart

Review and Giveaway: We Were Liars by E. Lockhart

If you’ve already read We Were Liars, you can appreciate how crazy this is is: I read the book yesterday, and earlier that day, I finished another book (which shall remain unnamed to prevent spoilers in either case) that had the SAME twist ending as We Were Liars.  Go ahead and digest that, because what are the chances?  Both stories were pretty good, but I think the other one pulled off the twist better.  Part of the problem, or perhaps,… Read more »

Review: After the End by Amy Plum

Review: After the End by Amy Plum

Writing thrillers and horror movies and books must have been a lot easier prior to the late 90’s/early 2000’s, before everyone over the age of ten had a cell phone.  Think of a film like The Blair Witch Project.  It would have been a much different (and much shorter) film if the characters had been able to whip out their phones to call for help or to open up their GPS. Phones play a big role in After the End,… Read more »

Top Ten Book Covers I’d Frame as Pieces of Art

Top Ten Book Covers I’d Frame as Pieces of Art

vide   Top Ten Tuesday is a meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week a new topic is given, and this week’s topic is: BOOK COVERS I’D FRAME AS PIECES OF ART I won’t be writing much commentary on the covers I chose, because: 1) They probably don’t need them, and 2) My AC is broken, it’s hot, I’m sweaty, and I’m grumpy as hell.  So, in addition to linking up your picks below, feel free to cheer me… Read more »

Review: Rebel Belle by Rachel Hawkins

Review: Rebel Belle by Rachel Hawkins

Imagine that you’re about to be crowned Homecoming Queen, and as you do a few last-minutes preparations in the school restroom, the janitor bursts in.  He’s mortally wounded, he makes some bizarre comments, and as he’s dying, he presses his mouth to yours, and a strange…energy fills your body.  You now have superhuman strength and the ability to kick some major ass. This is the awesome opening of Rebel Belle, the new series by Rachel Hawkins.  I’ve only previously read… Read more »
