Healing Hiatus has ended!

I am happy to report I have been cleared by my doctor to type again! I am so excited! My arm is not all the way healed yet, but it is about 60% and as long as I do not bear weight it should heal the rest of the way just fine.  To celebrate I am going  on a reading an reviewing binge starting this weekend! I would ideally like to post once a week again. I am trying to figure out a way to post my editorial schedule (using my book blogger plugin) so that you guys have an… Read more »

REVIEW: Daughter 4254

    I really enjoyed this book! I didn’t realize how boring life could be without the creative arts! The chapters alternate between before and after. After with daughter 4254 being in prison for crimes unknown. Before finds 4254 mourning the loss of her mother and trying to make better for her family and her future by attending secondary school. Yes, eventually the before and the after do intersect and we learn why she ends up there. I, however, am not going to spoil the surprise! I love dystopian in general and this one does not disappoint.

Grace’s mom is a fairly liberal Christian Minister. Her family moved due to her mother’s liberal views were ostracized from… Read more »

Healing Hiatus!

I want to apologize to you all for my lack of posting these many weeks. I know my regulars are used to pauses here and there but not this long! For those of you who have not read my bio page, I have something called Osteogenesis Imperfecta. In my sleep some weeks ago I had a full body spasm as I was falling asleep that snapped both my tibias all the way through as well as a clean through fracture of my humerus (upper arm bone) at the very top near my shoulder.  I was in the hospital for 3 weeks and… Read more »

REVIEW: The Most Dangerous Thing

First I would like to issue a public apology to the author of this title Leanne Lieberman. I was to review this as part of a review tour and unfortunately, due to midterms, I was not able to finish the book by the deadline. In the future, I plan to not to sign up to do reviews that fall the week of any major test.  I am glad I took the time to finish the novel before posting my thoughts because this book was worth it! This title for me was a very welcome change from the traditional YA romance…. Read more »
