I was pleasantly surprised by this one - I picked it up on a whim, intrigued by the Denver setting more than anything else, and it way exceeded all my expectations!  Filled with fun, interesting, eccentric characters (they are often too good to be true, but what the heck, that's why we read...

Julie Ann Peters is probably my favorite author of all time. I offer this as a disclaimer because I think it would pain my heart to give her anything below a five star rating. That bias aside though, Grl2Grl is a great resource for teens or adults who are questioning their gender identity or...

I used to be a connoisseur of romance novels, in my younger days. I enjoyed the escape of a well-written novel, interesting characters, and good dialogue. Hoping for a little of that escapism, I picked up Luckiest Lady in London.

The dialogue in this book is...

The concept of the "graphic" novel is simple. There are pictures that connect with the story. The simplicity is wonderful because the reader can fill the gaps for themselves. The only thing I didn't like was the characters were too simple. The two main characters were in love with each other,...

*Spoiler Alert* This book was difficult for me to finish, mostly because of the situation that was going on in the book. It is a great book for teens because it discusses a serious topic of a controlling boyfriend or girlfriend. And how you may not even be aware of the situation that you're...

Penguin in love is one of the most heart warming books I have read in a while. It is a true romance from cover to cover, but simplifies it into the most basic of equations. This book haphazardly follows the lost item theme that people may be familiar with, think of Cinderella. Somebody lost a...

It might be a classic, but I didn't care for Madame Bovary.  I might be looking at this piece of literature too superficially, but it didn't offer me much more than a cheap, modern day romance novel.  The story's main focus is the immature attitudes and behavior of Doctor Bovary's...

I was pretty impressed with the writing in this book, even if it is seen as a "beach read."  I enjoy reading romance novels from time to time, and this one was one of the better stories of this type that I've read.  The characters were interesting, and unlike many stories, the saucier...

An enjoyable collection of paranormal short stories. Most of the stories feature characters from the authors full length book series. Short stories are a great way to try out new authors and get a feeling for their style of storytelling without committing to a whole novel. Some of my favorites...
