Reviews by BookLouver
On 6/8 BookLouver wrote: When I read that this book was compared as a retelling of Cinderella, I thought the story would be tragically romantic, and that discouraged me a bit. However, I am happy to say that it was not what I expected and, despite appearances, it is not as romantic as it is believed. This novel focuses mainly ... Easy and quick contemporary reading
On 6/8 BookLouver wrote: For those who follow this series, I am very sorry to inform you that the happy ending of the first book ended in Unraveling. However, this does not mean that the adventures are over. In fact, Eliyana (or El), begins a whole new life and it is not easy for her to adapt to this reality. Far from being ... "Happily ever after" had a bad ending
On 6/23 BookLouver wrote: This novel is a mix between dystopia and science fiction. The story unfolds in an undated future, where humans interact with alien races and have a culture deeply rooted in technology. Initially that was what attracted me to the book. However, it didn’t caught me completely. In general, I think it’s ... Young adult sci-fi
On 5/19 BookLouver wrote: From the previous Melanie Dickerson books I've had the opportunity to read, I always admire her incredible ability to retell a fairy tale and make it more interesting. This novel was based on the Grimm brothers' tale, "The goose-girl", and although I have never read the original story, I really enjoyed ... A retelling of the "The goose-girl"
On 5/4 BookLouver wrote: This book reminded me, in a way, of the story of Beauty and the Beast. Although this novel has nothing to do with the story, the way Sabine sees herself and how she thinks she will never find love, made me think of the Beast. However, the similarities with that story end there. This story has a romance ... Braveness, self love, and romance.
On 2/27 BookLouver wrote: Although it is a very thin book, it is not very easy to read. This novel focuses on the illness of the main character and his struggle, not only with himself, but with the rest of the world.

On 12/21 BookLouver wrote: Andrew Klavan is an author whose youth books I really enjoyed. I love his way of creating suspense at the end of each chapter, and how the whole story always has a deeper message than expected.

On 10/21 BookLouver wrote: This story so mystery as much as drama and romance.

The ... Presumed guilty
On 9/26 BookLouver wrote: I honestly did not expect this to like series as much as I did, but I could not help but get trapped in the story and it left me desperate to know the ending. After the last book, Shades of Doon, the plot became more complicated, so I had high expectations for this fourth book. For those who like happy ... Satisfying ending!
On 8/21 BookLouver wrote: This book promised much drama from the beginning –which it’s clear stated in the synopsis- and drama is what you get.

On 7/20 BookLouver wrote: Years ago when Brian "Head" Welch’s first book, “Save my from myself” was published, I was very intrigued to read it. As I could not get it, I settled interviews he gave in the media. Thanks to that, I knew that he was drug addicted while he was in the metal band, Korn; and how her daughter Jennea ...

On 4/24 BookLouver wrote: After hearing about a lot of non-Christian novels of the same genre, I was beginning to wonder when I would read something from this genre that is Christian and something I could like; and I think I've found another of my favorites this year.

On 3/8 BookLouver wrote: Suspense to the limit. Suspense is one of my favorite genres, and that’s probably why I find it a bit easy to deduce what will happen in a scene or the true identity of the characters. So when I started reading this novel, I thought I could figure out what was going to happen. However, I was wrong. This ... "If I run" - Terri Blackstock
On 3/4 BookLouver wrote: Storm siren is a trilogy that I would not normally read because fantasy is not really my thing, but couldn’t resist because of the incredible writing of Mary Weber.

On 2/3 BookLouver wrote: I don’t usually write reviews criticizing books but beyond my personal tastes, I always rescued the best of each novel and emphasize it.

On 11/12 BookLouver wrote: This is one of those books you know it will be really deep with just reading the synopsis.

On 9/5 BookLouver wrote: I really like books with siblings as protagonists especially if they are twins, so I knew I'd like this novel since I read the synopsis.
