Review: Finding Harmony by Amy Kaybach

Posted 12/10/2022 by Charli - 0 Comments -

Ok by now we all know I’m a sucker for Amy Kaybach’s books – and this series in particular, so it should come as absolutely no surprise that I loved the book. Characters Viola (Vi) If you’ve read Blending Chords, you’ve met Viola before and you know who she is. If you haven’t read Blending Chords, Viola is Arista’s older sister. Arista is Callum’s wife – please, read Blending Chords for that story. Viola is having a time of it – she made some mistakes in her past, but most of them weren’t really her fault. I love Viola because in some ways, I’m like her. I don’t have a POS ex-husband, but I do have some pretty crappy ex-boyfriends. And I’m definitely in the “I’m too old for this guy” category because most of the guys I find attractive are younger than me. So I get it. I love […]

Hello again everyone. I’m back with another blog tour – this time I’m featuring The Q by Amy Tintera, a post-apocalyptic YA science fiction novel. Read on for more information on the book and my review of it. If you don’t know by now, I love a good thriller – YA, adult, you name it, I’m probably going to at least try it. But with this one, we also have the science fiction bent with the post-apocalyptic style which was intriguing to me. Characters There are a lot of characters in this book. Some play bigger roles than others, as always. I’m going to detail three characters here that I feel the need to talk about. Maisie Rojas Maisie Rojas is our female main character and she’s a great one. The daughter of the former second-in-command of the southern part of The Q, everyone expected her to take over when […]

Blog Tour: Friends Like These by Jennifer Lynn Alvarez

Posted 11/01/2022 by Charli - 0 Comments -

Hello everyone. Today we have another blog tour, this time featuring Jennifer Lynn Alvarez’s new novel, Friends Like These. I’ll be reviewing the book for you today, so let’s get this party started! Ok, if you’ve been coming here long enough, you know that I absolutely LOVE a good suspense/thriller novel. Even better if it is a YA suspense/thriller novel. Trust me when I say this book doesn’t disappoint. Characters So let’s look at our characters: First, we have Tegan, who drives me up the wall. I’ve known girls like her – they think they’re so generous and so loyal, but the only person they’re truly loyal to is themselves. I really don’t care much for her, to be honest. She and Jessica used to be best friends, until Chloe came along that is. Next, we have Jessica. She’s one of our two main characters. She’s in love with Jake. […]

Book Review: Gleanings by Neal Shusterman

A couple of years ago, I read and reviewed the Arc of a Scythe trilogy by Neal Shusterman. I absolutely loved the trilogy and gave it high marks here on the blog. Well, the other day as I was trolling through NetGalley, I noticed a new book by Neal Shusterman and the cover reminded me a lot of the Arc of a Scythe trilogy. Then I noticed the title – Gleanings. That was all I needed to see to know there was a new Arc of a Scythe book coming out. I requested it and was granted my request to read and review the book. Gleanings is a collection of short stories that take place at various points in time during the Arc of a Scythe trilogy. In some cases, it gives some backstory – such as for Scythe Curie and Scythe Goddard. In other cases it tells what happened […]
