Nightmare City

Nightmare City

On 1/23 Elizabeth L wrote: This is a unique novel aimed at Young Adults. The first half of the book is eerie and with a bit of a horror vibe to it. However, with an interesting twist I found myself rethinking the entire first half of the novel. I did find myself questioning why this novel was written in third person when it ... Great Plot

Memory's Door

Memory's Door

On 1/3 Elizabeth L wrote: I hadn’t realized until I received this title that it was the second in a series. I usually try to read a series in order and not start part way through so I was worried that I wouldn’t be able to follow along. I think I would have been able to get into the story easier had I read the first book, ... Memory’s Door By James Rubart

Moon Over Edisto

Moon Over Edisto

On 5/9 Elizabeth L wrote: Moon over Edisto is a beautifully written book about one families history of betrayal, heartbreak and ultimately the peace that forgiveness and a change of heart can bring.

Confessions of April Grace: Chocolate-Covered Baloney

Confessions of April Grace: Chocolate-Covered Baloney

On 12/20 Elizabeth L wrote: I loved the author's use of voice to write this book, I felt convinced I was actually reading the writing of a (very funny) tween. For example, "Her hair was a color I have never seen on a real human person....And I believe if you are a million years old, you should not wear mini-skirts." Even the ...

Lovelier Than Daylight

Lovelier Than Daylight

On 10/31 Elizabeth L wrote: This novel almost reminded me of a classic English novel but set in America but with a lot more action and very easy to read. I thought the details from dialogue to description struck me as being very authentic. I have to say though I found it very frustrating that the characters were so true to their ...

Grieving God's Way

Grieving God's Way

On 7/11 Elizabeth L wrote: Grieving God's Way By Margaret Brownley is a 90-day devotional healing experience for the grieving spirit. The death of a family member or friend is devastating.

The Searchers

The Searchers

On 5/22 Elizabeth L wrote: Skepticism is so easy, so necessary in age of scandal and spin. But that doesn't mean we've given up searching. Somewhere, deep down, we still want to find meaning, purpose, contentment. Doubt may protect us from deception, but it can also trap us in despair. Two thousand years ago in the city of ...

Instead 9 babies are born out of prophecy - the horsemen of the apocalypse. Fast forward to 2048 and the story centers around the life of Dr. Paul Binder, professor of history and cultural semiotics ... The Seraph Seal By Leonard Sweet, Lori Wagner
