Book Review: May Day

If the murderer you’re tracking is a vampire, then you want a vampire detective. Just maybe not this one. It’s not that Jack Valentine is bad at her job.

Book Review: Killian’s Dead

Love is for losers.
​Jack doesn't care about anything except music. All she wants to do is find a decent gig, stand by the speakers and let the bass roll through her. It's the only reason she gets out of bed.

Until she meets Winta. In the space of a second, everything is different. Winta knows what she wants and for one night, what she wants is Jack. It feels like the start of forever.

​One thing's certain: Jack has no idea what she's getting herself into.

Book Review: Knight in Paper Armor

A beautifully written YA book about a young boy, ostracized from everyone else and who has powers unimaginable, and who is saved by the confident, brave young girl he meets at school. Billy Jakobek isn't like other children--he lives as a kind of science experiment, his very existence a mystery. Natalia Gonzalez is a Guatemalan immigrant working hard to keep her family whole and well, and her life is turned upside down when she meets the strange new boy. Will their friendship and developing relationship survive what's coming?

Book Review: The Wolf’s Tooth

So far, the book seems to like it'll be a pretty easy and quick read. The writing style is reminiscent of Tolkien's The Hobbit with the writer taking a direct role in explaining to the reader what is going on, and making corrections as necessary. It also has that faint fairytale-esque feel to it. The prologue and first chapter are both relatively short, so I haven't seen much of the plot or character(s) just yet and can't really comment on them, but I am excited to continue this journey and see what happens!
