Blog Tour/Review: VAIN by Fisher Amelie

REVIEW:
Vain, by Fisher Amelie, was a refreshing read for me! Not only was I completely unaware of where the story would lead the main character, but it was also a great change for me in the New Adult genre.  (Side Note: New Adult should NOT translate to smut.) Vain offered a story that was insightful and encouraged self-reflection, but it remained entertaining.
Sophie is annoying for the first few chapters, and I think it helped me appreciate the journey she goes on as well as the changes she makes in her life.  Make …

Gabriel Stone and The Divinity of Valta by Shannon Duffy

One of my favorite Middle Grade novels from my childhood is The Chronicles of Narnia. I remember my grade six teacher, Mrs. Adams reading it to the class. She would read a few chapters each week and we’d never want her to stop! I think that’s when I really fell in love with Fantasy stories and the idea of going to another world. Other favorites growing up were Charlotte’s web, Bedknobs and Broomsticks, Nancy Drew, Anne of Green Gables, and anything with a fantasy theme where something was happening that …

Ten Tiny Breaths by K.A. Tucker

Ten Tiny Breaths, by K.A. Tucker, is not the first Contemporary novel I’ve read, but it is the first New Adult novel I’ve read. (By now y’all know I prefer Paranormal and Fantasy.)  Where Young Adult tends to be the level of content that I’m most comfortable with, this New Adult novel did not have me shying away from the new category of fiction for twenty-somethings.  (Although, I might have blushed a few times!)  Ten Tiny Breaths takes a look at the life of a young woman who has survived …

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 …

The Golden Lily by Richelle Mead

The Golden Lily, by Richelle Mead, is the long-awaited second novel in the Bloodlines Series. I was left breathless by Sydney’s busy schedule, and a few angsty moments she has.  I love this series, even more than the Vampire Academy Series… You will not be disappointed by the perilous positions the characters get themselves into!
The story continues to follow the life of Sydney Sage, an alchemist who’s current assignment is the protection of Jill Dragomir, a vampire princess.  Sydney’s aversion to vampires is waning, she’s taken up dating, and we …
