Blog Tour/Review: One by Leigh Ann Kopans

One, by Leigh Ann Kopans, is a refreshing new young adult novel that twists fantasy and science fiction into a dreamy comic-novel for both guys and gals.  Let me explain, I love the idea of comic book super heroes, but I don’t actually read comics.  I love to watch the Marvel movies, Batman, Superman, Spiderman, X-Men… All these men!  While some prefer a lot of action with a sprinkle of plot, One is a great option for the novel reader who wants a dash of superhero.
I read One with the …

Nobody by Jennifer Lynn Barnes

Nobody, by Jennifer Lynn Barnes, started out as a promising mix of YA paranormal and sic-fi. Claire could be depressing and whiny, but despite no one paying any attention to her for her entire life she sucks it up and works on her tan.  Then there is an attempt on her life.  Claire is unaware that she has a rare ability, but when she sees the guy that wants to kill her it starts a string of events that bring the two to work together.
I really liked the character Claire, …

The Ultra Violets by Sophie Bell

The Ultra Violets, by Sophie Bell, is an ultra-awesome Middle Grade novel, that is going to take your kids on an adventure to Sync City with a purple-haired pre-teen, Iris, and the rest of her friends!  I have to admit that while I am an avid reader, my own daughter takes some encouraging in the subject.  When The Ultra Violets arrived in the mailbox, I had to convince my daughter to let me read the brilliant, purple-covered book first. While the cover is extremely inviting, you’ll be pleased to know that the …

Clicks by Amy Evans

Born and bred to win, Cami’s family expects her to join a secret society called The Guard, marry one of the two identical twin boys next door, and stay on Pinhold Island for the rest of her life. Home to perfect waves, black sand beaches, and the world-famous Surf Carnival, Pinhold seems deceptively perfect. While visitors are jealous of the few hundred people who get to live there, Cami feels stifled. Thanks to the intense link she shares with her own twin, Mica, she can’t even be alone with …

Sapphire Blue by Kerstin Gier

This is the second novel in The Ruby Red Trilogy, Sapphire Blue, by Kerstin Gier.  I have been waiting a year for this novel, and I still feel so incomplete… Probably because it is a trilogy and I have only read two of the novels in the series!  If only I knew German!  As these books are being translated, I have been waiting as patiently as possible. I admit that it has been worth the wait, with new characters and a growing relationship between Gwen and Gideon, I could not …

Origin by Jessica Khoury

ORIGIN excerpt:

My dreams are tangled around each other like plants vying for the best spot in the sun. They strangle each other in their attempt to get the better of my reason. I know which one I truly want – I’ve wanted it all my life. But I’m being overtaken by a new desire, a raging, unpredictable dream that could destroy everything I’ve worked for. (Origin, page 99)

Origin, by Jessica Khoury, is tame and wild all at the same time! I give Origin 4 books on the bookshelf!

Thoughts from Jessica:
In …
