Apollyon by Jennifer Armentrout
★★★★★

Alex has discovered how special she really is; not only is she a half-blood, but she is also an Apollyon. Alex had to rise to new challenges and had to face many of her fears. Even when she didn’t believe in herself, she had people around her that did — especially Aiden. Her world is crumbling down around her. Will she make it out alive?

Jennifer Armentrout has done it again — her books are like a bad drug addiction. Just like every book of hers that I have finished — in this series and the Lux series — I have been left craving more. Without another one to read, I go instantly into withdrawals. I have no idea how I’m going to wait for the conclusion to this amazing series. She seriously makes me feel like a crazed junkie. Thankfully, she writes fast and publishes books fairly faster than other authors.

The characters are pushed even farther in this book. There are a lot of holy crap moments and some great action scenes. This book was intense, to say the least; and I don’t want to give too much away, especially to people who haven’t read this series yet. I’m terrified for the next book to see how this all ends up, and I know I will be sad to say goodbye to this world and these amazing characters that have found a permanent place in my heart.

This is one of my favorite series, and I highly recommend it! You won’t be able to put these books down until you finish them. I have to go back to read the other ones to review them because I couldn’t stop reading them to review them, and I don’t want to accidentally mix up what happened in each specific book. It is a great series for readers of any age

I received this book from the publisher, Spencer Hill Press, for review. Thank you Spencer Hill Press!

Hopeless by Colleen Hoover
★★★★★
Sky had never been attracted to anyone before she met Dean Holder. The hopeless boy who swooped into her life and expressed a variety of different personalities and emotions. He ran hot and cold, and she couldn’t figure him out. Meeting him triggered events that spiraled her life out of control, but she also needed him to regain control again. There was a lot more to Holder than his good looks and bad temper.
I cannot put into words how amazing this book is and how much I love it. It deserves more than my highest rating of five stars. That is how epic this book is. I read this book in one sitting the first time and couldn’t go to bed before I finished this beautiful, heartbreaking story. I was thinking about it continuously for days after until I re-read it again a few weeks later with my good friend Michele from A Belle’s Tales. She was the one who told me about the book to begin with; and boy, am I glad! Hopeless is now one of my all-time favorite books. These characters and this story will stay with me for a long time; they have not let go of me yet.
The story is breathtaking, and I had no idea where it was taking me; the author did an incredible job keeping me in the dark about what was going on. There were plot twists and turns I didn’t see coming. Some things I was able to kind of figure out, but it still took me a while. The mystery and intriguing words kept me propelling forward, jumping off each cliffhanger chapter to get to the next. There were things I never saw coming and moments that made my heart stop.
The author made me feel like I was part of this book; I felt every raw emotion and felt like the things the characters experienced, I experienced. The author’s writing and style was amazing, and I really can’t wait to read more of her work.
This was a work of art, perfectly put together and done flawlessly.
The author recently announced that she would be writing Hopeless in Holder’s point-of-view, and all I can say is I can’t flipping wait. This is a book that I will definitely re-read again in the future, and I highly recommend it.

Fractured Light by Rachel McClellan
★★★★☆
Llona lost her parents at a young age and had been living with her Uncle Jake ever since. She was forced to be the adult since Jake was still in a depressed state. Llona was special and had to hide what she was and refused to go to the school that promised people like her. She didn’t have any friends other than May and kept everyone at arms’ length… until Christian came into her life. She learned to let people in, and she learned more about herself and the power she held inside.
This book was awesome, and I really enjoyed it. It took me a bit to get introduced to the story and learn the names of things; but once I got used to it, it was a fast, fun read. I enjoyed the characters and the subtle hints that were thrown my way. The book kept me guessing, but I got my AHA moment near the end. The characters felt real, and I really enjoyed seeing Llona change and the relationships grow between her and her new friends — especially May and Christian.
The author had a very nice writing style that I found fluid and kept me wanting to read more. When she ended a chapter, it was difficult to stop with how they left off, which propelled me to continue reading more.
I met the author a year ago when she was at a book event at my college in Maine. I had seen Fractured Light around the blogging world and had already been interested in reading it, so I had to buy it when I saw her at the event. I love autographed books, of course. I actually had to leave the event, but she told me she was doing another event at Books-A-Million so I went to that one after, purchased her book, and got it autographed. My fiancé was with me and so was my friend Katie, and we ended up hanging out with her for the entire event and talking with her.
I arrived at Books-A-Million before she did and, at the time, knew a lot of the employees because they were previous Borders employees. They somehow had communication issues and didn’t know about the event; so luckily, I asked and they were able to get something set up for her. I wish there had been more awareness for her because she was a ton of fun to talk to (well, maybe I don’t feel too bad since I was able to talk to her as much as I did), and now I know that her books are awesome.
It took me a while to begin reading it because this year has been crazy, but receiving the ARC of Fractured Soul so I could be a part of the blog tour was great incentive and at least this way I can start reading Fractured Soul right away. 
I would definitely recommend this book to Fantasy readers. I’m really excited to start Fractured Soul and also look forward to reading more of Rachel’s work.

Fractured Soul by Rachel McClellan
★★★★★
Llona graduated high school and decided to go to Lucent Academy, the school with people like her that she had fought going to. After recent events, she decided to go there with May to learn more about her powers and how to use them. The school is supposed to be safe, but Llona soon found out that was not the case. An evil plot was unfolding, and it was up to Llona and her friends to stop it.
My first thought after finishing the book was WOW. I just finished, and I’m reeling with emotions. I loved this book. I really loved the first book, but I loved this one even more. This one was packed full of action and Llona struggling through a lot of bad stuff. I don’t want to give anything away, but this book was killer.
Both books have made my heart sad, and I’m still having a hard time believing what happened in this one. If she hadn’t done such an awesome job making the book so gripping that I couldn’t let go of my Kindle, I may have thrown it.
The author does a fantastic job at making it so you can’t put the book down. The end of each chapter is a cliffhanger and the only thing you can do is jump off the cliff to find out what will happen next. I really like how she does this.
This was a very fast read and was an exciting journey every step of the way. The ending of this book seriously killed me, and the sneak peek of the next book made it worse. I can’t wait to get my hands on the next book. I’m not sure how I’m going to wait for it. I’m going a little crazy right now.
This is a fantastic series that I will be continuing until the end.
I received this book from the author for review for her blog tour. I also received it from Netgalley after she sent it to me. Thank you both very much; I greatly enjoyed it and can’t wait for more.

Jacqueline had her heart broken and didn’t want to do anything anymore. Her best friend took action and made her go to a party to get her out of her depression, which ended up changing her life. That night she met Lucas, who had seen her; but she had been so wrapped up in her ex-boyfriend that she had never seen him. After that night, she began running into him everywhere.

I don’t think I have words to describe this book. It was beautiful, honest, and heart-breaking. I finished it a week ago, and I’m still thinking about it. I have wanted to re-read it ever since I finished last Wednesday at 4:00 am. I could not put it down for the life of me. I seriously tried because I had class Wednesday at 9:00 am, but it wasn’t possible to stop reading. The story had a hold of me and has yet to let go.

My good friend Michele from A Belle’s Tales gifted this book to me after she read it and loved it. If I remember right, she stayed up all night reading it also. I would never have found this book if it wasn’t for her, and I’m really glad she gifted it to me because it is one of my new favorite reads.

This story is extremely powerful and broaches a very serious subject that is hard to talk about. It grabbed a hold of my heart, broke it, mended it, and then broke it all over again. It is impossible not to feel the array of emotions in this book.

The author did an amazing job, and I look forward to reading more of her work. Lucas and Jacqueline will be with me for a long time to come.

Chronicles of Myriad: Quest for the Oracle by James Nicholas Adams
★★★★☆

Jason’s best friend Kristine disappeared when they were children. People tried to convince him that she had not been real, just an imaginary friend… but he knew she was real. Eight years later, he left his home behind to find Kristine and ended up on a journey he never expected to be on. He discovered a world very different from his own, where magic is real and dragons roam. He soon found out his destiny was a lot greater than finding his childhood best friend.

I really enjoyed The Quest for the Oracle. The story was well developed and kept me interested until the end.  I liked seeing how Jason developed as a character while he learned about himself. The fantasy and action scenes were done nicely, giving me the excitement I like in this type of book.

I’m impressed by this first-time author’s book and his writing. I thought the story was well-written, and I enjoyed his writing style. I can tell he put a lot of time, care, and effort into this book.

I look forward to reading more of the author’s work - especially the next book in the series. I hope I don’t have to wait too long to find out what happens next in this world with the awesome characters that I got to know.

Timeless by Michelle Madow
★★★☆☆
 
Lizzie and Drew were finally together, fate had been changed, and they had a second chance at love. They were ready for their happily ever after, but no such luck.  An evil curse was following Lizzie, which would change her newfound fate back to what happened in her past life… her dead. Lizzie knew that she was meant to be with Drew, but the universe didn’t seem to want that… or her ex-best-friend Chelsea. Lizzie, Drew, and Chelsea would have to team up in a race against time to fix the curse and stop Lizzie’s eminent death.
 
I was highly anticipating this book after reading Remembrance and Vengeance, and this was a nice conclusion to the series.  I didn’t find this one as enchanting as the first book, but I still enjoyed it and am glad we got to see what happened with Lizzie, Drew, and Chelsea. The book picked up more for me around the halfway mark.
 
This was an enchanting series, and I really enjoyed the interaction between the characters. It was a lovely young adult romance, and you can see the inspiration from Taylor Swift in it.
 
The author did a nice job tying up loose ends in the series, and I think readers can be content with how it ends. The author’s writing style reads smoothly, and I look forward to seeing what she writes next.

 
I would recommend this series to young adult readers that enjoy a fun, clean romance. It is also a great read for Taylor Swift fans.

Left to Love (Next Door Boys #2) by Jolene B. Perry
★★★★☆

Leigh seemed to have her happily ever after. She married Brian, the guy of her dreams, started her own sewing business thanks to her new husband’s computer skills, and got to be a mother to Nathan, Brian’s son, who she loved like he was her own child. All of these things came to an abrupt and devastating halt, once Leigh realized she had been experiencing symptoms… her cancer was back. Now, with her new family, she had to battle her cancer again. Leigh didn’t want to put them through this pain and struggled to protect them while she lost sight of what she needed.


Left to Love was the much-anticipated sequel to The Next Door Boys. I really loved The Next Door Boys and was so happy to find out she was writing a sequel after I finished it. I received it from NetGalley and it was one of my first reviews when I started blogging. I have loved every one of Jolene Perry’s books since then; she has not disappointed me yet.

She is a fantastic new author that has definitely caught my attention. There are not many young adult authors that write about difficult situations such as cancer and abuse. I have said this in past reviews also, but it is very true and she does it very well. I keep comparing her books to my favorite author’s  Lurlene McDaniel, and that is pretty high praise for me. I had been looking for more books like hers and couldn’t seem to find anything close enough to what I was looking for until I requested The Next Door Boys from NetGalley. I am so glad I did because I found an author I really love. 

Left to Love was really good and did a great job pulling at my heart and then breaking it. This type of story isn’t for everyone, but I love reading these types of stories. Yeah, I’m odd, I know, but hey, the books sell, so it can’t only be me. I’m glad the author wrote more to Leigh and Brian’s story and we got to see them married and have their forever. In most stories, you have the romance, but who knows what happens after the book ends? Do they get married? Do they end up falling out of love? I loved having that answer and also seeing them work though something incredibly difficult, which made them only love each other more in the end. 

I look forward to reading more of Jolene Perry’s work and am excited to see what she writes about next.

Intangible by J. Meyers
★★★★☆

Luke and his sister Sera were special; he could see the future and she was able to heal people. Luke had never been able to stop his visions from happening and Sera couldn’t stop herself from healing someone that was badly hurt. Luke had never wanted to stop his visions so much until he had one of Sera dying. Each vision filled him with impending doom.  Time was running out, and he still didn’t know how to save her.


Intangible was a refreshing fantasy; it was different than most stuff that is around right now. The story pulled me in, so I didn’t have a problem getting into it. It was also quite cool that it was set in Vermont. I have lived in Maine since 2001, but, before that, I had lived in Vermont since I was born, and I often go back to visit family. It is a ton of fun reading books that are set in places that I know. To me, it makes my reading experience more personal.

The vivid images the author created were fantastic. It was easy for me to get lost in the scenes and pretend I was actually there. The characters were also very relatable and I loved reading about the two main characters, Luke and Sera. I felt like I really got to know them in this story, and, when something happened to them, it felt like it was happening to me.

I really enjoyed the storyline and the magic in the book. I love the world of fantasy and magical powers, especially when the story isn’t just a copy of another with different names and places. For me, Intangible was a new storyline. Yes, relationships will always resemble other relationships, because really - how many different ways can you write romance? I’m okay with that; I love the story just the same, and, as long as the core of the story isn’t overdone and impresses me, I am happy, and that is what this one did.

I recommend Intangible to young adult fantasy readers, or even readers that do not read a lot of fantasy. The story is set in an every day world, so the fantasy aspect is very balanced and not overpowering for people that don’t read a lot of it. I look forward to reading more of J. Meyers’s work, and I am anticipating the next installment to this series.

I received this book for review from the author.

I recommend Intangible to young adult fantasy readers, or even readers that do not read a lot of fantasy. The story is set in an every day world, so the fantasy aspect is very balanced and not overpowering for people that don’t read a lot of it. I look forward to reading more of J. Meyers’s work, and I am anticipating the next installment to this series.

I received this book for review from the author.


Q
Christine, greetings! I like your blog. Do you accept review requests? I'm a self-publishing author and I recently released my first novel, a YA dystopian fantasy called Mutt. It's gotten a wonderful response from the bloggers who've reviewed it so far. You can link from my Tumblr to the book's Amazon page to read the description and other reviews (since askbox hates direct links). If you'd be interested to read it, I'd love to send you a free ebook copy for review!
