I was given the opportunity to read THE TROUBLE WITH FATE by Leigh Evans about a year ago when it was still in the process of being published by St. Martin’s, and I fell in love with the story and the characters. Hedi is one of those chicks that I completely loved to read. Her voice was refreshing and totally kicka** to be honest, which is much like the author once you get to know her. Evans …

I finished reading Lisa Burstein’s Pretty Amy this afternoon. It was a lovely and painful read for me, and I know I should explain that more fully so as not to be misunderstood. Do not think painful means it was hard for me to get through. That is not the case at all. There are two reasons I say it was a lovely and painful read for me.
First, It was painful for me because …

Recently, I had the opportunity to pick up a Galley of MJ Rose’s The Book of Lost Fragrances. Lately, I seem to have been spending a lot of time with books of the paranormal, dystopian, or fantasy genre, so I was surprised when I read about this book and couldn’t get it off my mind. The synopsis was awesome and pulled me in right away. Here’s the synopsis from Amazon.com:
“A sweeping and suspenseful tale of secrets, intrigue, and lovers separated by time, all connected through the mystical qualities of a perfume …

“If we have little, and want for little, and we are all equal, we envy no one.” (p. 28)
*Spoiler Warning* Divergent is one of those hyped books that I was initially wary about. I’m sure some of you can sympathize about being burned by a hype book and as a result you become a little guy shy.
