Cruisin’ through books cause books make life worth living with Aly! First of 2018!

Hey guys, as I’ve said before these are going up for a second time. The first time they go up is on Aly’s site, located here.

One Wish Away by Ingrid Seymour

Oh how I love Genie books!  this books was very good with some different twists I didn’t expect.  Not all genie are bad or good.  I really enjoyed Marielle and Faris’s relationship and how it grew in the book.  I am curious where the next book is going to go.  I think I will have to continue with this series.  I am glad I found it!   5/5 Stars

Special Minds by Ally K.

I think this book is very unique!  I enjoyed it! This book kept me reading more.  I wanted to see what this book was about.  I thought when I read the title it would be about a genius or something but I enjoyed the story because it was not what I expected too.  I got drawn into the story with Milly and I think book two will be great as well.  *This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.* 4/5 Stars

Cruel Angels Pass by Keishi Ando

This book was a very short read but I liked it.  I think there was something I lost a little in this one though. *This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.*  3/5 Stars

Tales of His Words by Keishi Ando

A quick love story that can last over both time and death.  I very dreamy and romantic story for me.  I liked it. *This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.*  4/5 Stars

The Burning by J.P. Seewald

This book to me was a heart wrenching story but a interesting story to read.  This story has me remembering Erin Brockovich a little bit.  Another greedy company was involved in this as well and didn’t want to help anymore than it had to if at all.  The characters were something I can relate to which makes it better for me.  *This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.*  4/5 Stars

Trouble at Riverside Academy  by Liam Moiser

I enjoyed this quick read.  What would you do when your father shows up from out of the blue?  I liked this book and I had a great time getting to know Rachel and Ben.  This book was quite an adventure in a short story. *This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.*  4/5 Stars

Smiley by Michael Ezell

I love these serial killer books!  This one is great yet just as spooky too because the killer is a “nice” guy and neighbor.  I have read in other things about some of these killers can blend in but this guy is good. A home town boy and big LAPD police guy comes back home after he loses his father, and this guy, Garrett, has a killer case on his hands.  The book was great and hard to put down.  * This book was given to me for free at my request from NetGalley and I provided this voluntary review.*  5/5 Stars

Hinder by Kristin Ping

Hinder was not quite what I expected but I enjoyed the meeting and learning about Benders and Wielders.  I thought that was an interesting part of this book. I think the character were very good together.  I think this book and it’s author has some great ideas and a new look on witches.  I thought this book was ok but it did not caught me as much as I had hoped it would.  *This book was given to me for free at my request from Netgalley and I provided this voluntary review.*  3/5 Stars

The Tell All by Libby Howard

What a lovely little mystery book. I enjoyed being cozy and reading a cute,  fun book.  A interesting book I didn’t expect to like as much as I did.  This book had me from the first chapter until the end.  It made me laugh a little too.  *This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.*  4/5 Stars

Destiny: Book of Love by Brandon Schieckoff           

This book was ok for me.  I enjoyed reading about the new nation of Heath.  The world building was not bad for me.  I just did not connect to this book like I wanted too.  Bii is a interesting character name I liked it but this book felt to me familiar to me like I have read or watch on a movie a little like it.  I think you should try this book for yourself and see what you think. I think this author is a good writer but the story did not connect to me like I wanted it too. *This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.*  3/5 Stars                   

Grim by Thea Atkinson

This book was good with reapers and fallen angels and much more.  I was hoping it would pull me in more than what it did but I think the characters were fun to read along with and I enjoyed meeting Alya.  I felt by the end of this book I was missing that “it” part of the book that makes me “have to” read the next one in the series.  4/5 Stars

Suckers by Keishi Ando     

I think this one is my favorite of Keishi Ando short stories.  It was creepy and still a great fun read.  So exciting to read good short books!  *This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.*  5/5 Stars

The King’s Peace by Kevin Hammond

This book reminds me a little of a PC game I used to play called “King’s Quest”.  It had swords and sorcery and more.  There is, of course, good and evil in the book, what story is not complete with some form of this? This story is much different from the game but I enjoyed it just as much if not more.  I was on this good thief’s side through out the book.  This story grabbed a hold of me from the beginning and kept me reading more.  * I received this book from author—this is my honest review*  5/5

Her Name is Grace by Shidorr Myrick-Gayer

I was very excited about this book when I got it.  But I was disappointed in this one.  This book lost me about half way through the book.  The beginning of the book was hard for me to get into and I just wished for more from this book.  I think the author had some good ideas in this story but this book was kind of a mess for me. 3/5

Silent Child by Sarah A. Denzil

I enjoyed this book very much.  I wanted to guess who I thought took Aiden but my guess was wrong.  I wanted to help Emma through out this book and I felt for her situation.  I am not sure if I could live through what she has.  The book was very exciting to me and I think this is a new author for me.  So, I will try more books from this author again.   I wonderfully engaging book for me!  5/5

Reaper’s Claim by Simone Elise

I don’t find too many books about reaper’s so when I do I can’t wait to read them.  This book’s characters twin sisters who are very much opposite of each other is good. One sister is an artist and one sister  a party animal.    This book did remind of the old TV show “Sister, Sister” a little bit.  I think the characters were likeable to me and I think the story is great for a young adult audience.   I enjoyed the book.  * I received this book from the author—this is my honest review* 4/5
