Now in My Bookbag: In All My Life, by Ciara Knight

I find this story imaginative and very well written. It deals with a truly serious topic. The ‘sweet romance’ takes a backseat to this grave issue. Knight deals with both in a meaningful way. She has put a lot of thought … Continue reading

Now in My Bookbag: In All My Dreams, by Ciara Knight

Such a sweet romance, even though Charlotte and Brady are a bit more abrasive than Knight’s Riverbend characters, but inclusion of her previous characters offsets some of the grating feel. The world-building for this town takes place in earlier books. … Continue reading

Now in My Bookbag: The Bones of Odin, (Matt Drake Book 1), by David Leadbeater

I think that I was looking for something of an Indiana Jones adventure. While Leadbeater delivers shades of Indy, there are way too many ideas in this book… many of them are underdeveloped. Drake is a very interesting character. It is … Continue reading

Now in My Bookbag: True North (Aurora Sky Vampire Hunter), by Nikki Jefford

I like this series by author Nikki Jefford. There are a lot of good ideas, characters that are interesting, and an engaging story. Overall, this series is good. I wish that the overall story arc was condensed into five books … Continue reading

Now in My Bookbag: Whiteout (Aurora Sky Vampire Hunter), by Nikki Jefford

I am conflicted about this book. I really like the plot progression, and feel that most of the book is filled with excitement and adventure. There is a lot of action, which I like. However, Aurora is still written as … Continue reading

Now in My Bookbag: Hunting Season (Aurora Sky: Vampire Hunter), by Nikki Jefford

I am not as impressed with Hunting Season. There is too much fluff. There is too much made of planning to save Dante, when the simplest, most efficient plan is mentioned halfway through the book. Aurora already has all of the help … Continue reading

Now in My Bookbag: Aurora Sky Vampire Hunter, Bad Blood, by Nikki Jefford

Author Nikki Jefford puts a lot of focus on metamorphosis in this book. So many changes. Everything diversifies with every decision made. It is so hard to keep up with what is going on, and who you have become. This is Aurora’s … Continue reading

Now in My Bookbag: Love (The Allure Chronicles), by Alyssa Rose Ivy

I like this book. The development of this story reminds me of Alice in Wonderland, by Lewis Carroll. Glendale even reminds me of the Cheshire Cat. The nonsensical characters are interesting, but I am missing further development of the original characters. … Continue reading
