Review: The Prey

Review: The Prey
Feb 10
2015

The cover is what I found myself leaning in towards. I then found myself falling in love with the synopsis and knew that I wanted to read more. This was a debut novel so I did have high expectations for the author and I was excited to see where this book was going to grab me. The beginning was what intrigued me the most. Right away it had me wanting to know more and to see the history of the world and the history of the characters. When I hit the middle, I am going to be honest and say that this was where I was slowing down with the reading and getting lost. I was tempted to put it down but I did want to keep reading and see if this book would redeem itself. The ending was your saving grace. It still wasn’t all that for me but like I said, the book did redeem...

Friendship On Fire: The Sequel

Friendship On Fire: The Sequel

After reading the first book, I was very interested in what happened to Daisy. I felt like there could be more and indeed there was. Plot: This story goes far deeper than what I thought it would be. Daisy has taken off to Africa leaving everyone to wonder why? I like that this plot goes on such a emotional roller coaster. It was exactly what kind of story I was in need of. The plot also dived into relationships and the brokeness of them. Some were life changing and others well, Daisy has to fight for. Friendships/Relationships: After everything Daisy went through I felt as though Daisy lacked backbone. It was like people always told her what to do yet Daisy couldn’t even speak up for herself. I do understand that things have dramatically changed for Daisy...

Review: Perfect Couple

Review: Perfect Couple

I just love these types of stories. The ones with two unlikely people that do become the perfect couple. Plot: It senior year and all the seniors are voting for their classmates. After being voted perfect couple, Brody and Harper take it in as a joke. Then they start to fall for each other. I really admired this plot. I felt it deepen with emotions and real life decisions. This plot goes further then just senior year but what they want for their future. Friendship/Love: Sometimes things don’t always go as well plan. That seemed to be the case with Brody and Harper. They both had girlfriend/boyfriend ( I don’t like the whole aspect of cheating, but they are in high school, not married, etc.) so them coming to the decisions of what is best is a hard to...

Since being a special needs mom myself, I thought I give this book try. I wanted to see things from another perspective and this story gave me just that. Plot: This is about a young girl named Amy who has a disability and becomes friends with boy named Matthew. This story tells of their friendship from beginning to end. The good, the bad and the ugly. I really enjoyed how detailed the plot was. There was no painting a pretty picture but really giving a story that tells the truth. Friendship/Love: Having a disability lots of people think that there is no possible way for love. Yet this story tells otherwise. I like that their friendship goes beyond what anyone would think. I love that their friendship goes through trials and at some points fails. They are just...

Review: The Murder Complex

Review: The Murder Complex

Super excited to read this debut, I read it in just a few hours. I really loved the movement of the plot and the setting. Plot: Since I have not read an dystopian book in a while, I thought it was time to dive into one. I have heard many good things about this book and yes, it was very good. The plot is in the future where a disease has ravaged the human race. A cure was found but not without consequences. Now all humans are traced through a system. That system is more complex than what the reader ever thought. One thing I enjoyed with the plot is the following the bread crumbs to more information. I love that the author didn’t divulge information right away, but slowly gave the reader bits and pieces of it. The initiative: I really like this aspect of the...
