Shooting Stars 01 Cinnamon – V. C. Andrews Book Review

For Cinnamon, dreaming of imaginary worlds and characters is her only escape from her mother’s breakdowns. Her grandmother’s overbearing control. Her family’s turmoil. But Cinnamon is discovering something special about herself, a gift from deep within that sets her apart: a talent for the theater that would finally give her a chance…to truly escape.

Divergent * Veronica Roth (Book 1)

“Becoming fearless isn’t the point. That’s impossible. It’s learning how to control your fear, and how to be free from it.” I have to say, I had an absolute blast reading this wild ride of an adventure, and I enjoyed every minute of it. EVERY.SINGLE.MINUTE! I haven’t had this sort of rush since Katniss enteredContinue reading “Divergent * Veronica Roth (Book 1)”

Insurgent * Veronica Roth (Book 2)

“Like a wild animal, the truth is too powerful to remain caged.” Insurgent takes off where Divergent left off. It is literally like we turned over the last page of Divergent and ended up in the beginning of Insurgent. Tobias, Tris, Marcus and Caleb travel with the remaining Abnegation to seek refuge with the Amity.Continue reading “Insurgent * Veronica Roth (Book 2)”

Orson Scott Card * Tales of Alvin Maker * Book 5 – Heartfire

“With delicacy and insight, incorporating folk tales and folk magic with mountain lore and other authentic details, Orson Scott Card has evoked a vision of America as it might have been.” –Greensboro Tribune-Review I love the Alvin Maker books. Even though how I imagine Alvin and how he currently looks on all covers are twoContinue reading “Orson Scott Card * Tales of Alvin Maker * Book 5 – Heartfire”

Seeds of Yesterday * Book 4 * V.C Andrews Book Review

After reading book 1, Flowers in the Attic , Petals in the wind and If there be thorns, I decided to continue reading the story of the Dollanger kids. And so it came to pass, I started reading the next dark chapter in a strange, chilling tale of passion and peril was delivered, but it was neither strange orContinue reading “Seeds of Yesterday * Book 4 * V.C Andrews Book Review”

If there be thorns * Book 3 * V.C. Andrews Book Review

After reading book 1, Flowers in the Attic and Petals in the wind, I decided to continue reading the story of the Dollanger kids. It seems the people found this lemony drama so compelling they made a third movie about it. This is another book about incest and rape so if you feel like youContinue reading “If there be thorns * Book 3 * V.C. Andrews Book Review”

Petals in the Wind * Book 2 * V.C. Andrews Book Review

I am very happy I did not purchase a hard cover / paperback for the next book in the Dollanger series after reading Flowers in the Attic * Book 1 * V.C. Andrews Book review. I went with an e-Book and I wanted to scream and trash and burn away every shread of technology thatContinue reading “Petals in the Wind * Book 2 * V.C. Andrews Book Review”

Dexter in the Dark * Jeff Lindsay Book Review

I’ve listened to Jeff Lindsay * Darkly Dreaming Dexter Book 1 and Dearly Devoted Dexter * Book 2 * Jeff Lindsay and I must say I enjoyed the third book in the installment. The blood splatter analyst is about to get married and his dark passenger is no longer an entity that’s part of Dexter. It becomes aContinue reading “Dexter in the Dark * Jeff Lindsay Book Review”

Flowers in the Attic * Book 1 * V.C. Andrews Book review

When I picked up this tiny looking book (compared to the behemoths I usually adhere to), I was surprised that I really, really liked it! And I can totally see why it was banned for years due to strong sexual themes, incest, rape scenes and other sensitive subjects. This is not a “cute book” aboutContinue reading “Flowers in the Attic * Book 1 * V.C. Andrews Book review”
