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: 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: 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

Now in My Bookbag: Winter Shadows, by Casey L. Bond

This book is far different than Bond’s other books set in West Virginia. Where the other books fit within the New Adult/College Romance genre, Winter Shadows is a Christian/Dystopian novel. I believe the story is okay. I find the multiple … Continue reading

Now in My Bookbag: 1980: You Shook Me All Night Long (a Love in the ’80s Novella), by Casey L. Bond

I wasn’t sure what to expect from this series of novellas. If the rest of the 80s are as good as 1980, I will be totally impressed. I thought that the plot of this book was very imaginative, and I … Continue reading

Now in My Bookbag: Diving In (Book #4 in the Beach Bag Boxed Set), by Gretchen Galway

This is a nice story with likeable characters. It touches on issues like phobias and family divisiveness. Nikki is driven by the need to heal herself, and Ansel is driven by the need for his father’s acceptance and love. I … Continue reading

In My Bookbag: Kindred (Book #2 in The Watcher Chronicles), by S.J. West

I will admit that I used to be one of those star-only reviewers. The first, (and second and third), time I read this series, I didn’t give any of my books the review that I should. Kindred is a great book, eliciting a wide range … Continue reading
