My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I received this book for free from Book Look Bloggers in exchange only for an honest unbiased review of the book.

This book was not what I expected I was expecting a more adult style chapter book, but instead I found a much more young teen friendly book. The book jumps from topic to topic in a manner that many teens would find fun. This jumping from topic to topic helps to stop the book from getting boring. The author did a good job incorporating biblical elements into the book with out making it over kill. This book delivers on its promise to engage teenage girls with how it provides age relevant information on beauty, acne, and nail tips.

Armada by Ernest Cline

ArmadaArmada by Ernest Cline
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Okay so this is definitely a book for die hard geeks not regular sci-fi fans. The book is well written and everything flows together just fine, but it is very slow. The book does not really start until page 90. From that point the main character meets the Earth Defense Alliance who had been secretly preparing Earth's population for an alien invasion through pop culture. Movies like Star Wars and video games had been financed by the alliance to get people ready to fight the alien threat. The whole book is very conspiracy theory style with a very geeky hero element. I would not recommend this book to a friend or family member, but I acknowledge that their are probably a lot of people who would like this type of book and I don't mean to offend anyone with this review.

Second Street Station: A Mary Handley Mystery by Lawrence H. Levy

Second Street Station: A Mary Handley MysterySecond Street Station: A Mary Handley Mystery by Lawrence H. Levy
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The first thing that drew me to this book was the cover. It made the book look like it was old even though it was brand new. The cover told me that this was a book about the past before I even opened the cover. Once I began reading the book I became confused by the prologue which was about a man referred to as the Frenchman instead of the female detective Mary. Chapter one was where Mary appeared and the first chapter was where the reader learned about who Mary was as a person and how she became who she was. I loved how the book flashed back to her childhood days. My favorite part was when Mary put on the murder case. I also like how Mary played stupid at a party to get information from Edison, and to outwit him. I was surprised by how much of the book was real and I enjoyed the mix of real and fiction. Overall I found this book to be a good read even though the viewpoint swaps were a bit confusing.

Arabian Knights - Volume 2

Arabian Knights - Volume 2 (Knights of Arabia, #2)Arabian Knights - Volume 2 by Aisha Bilal
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Arabian Knights - Volume 2 (Knights of Arabia) by Aisha Bilal is a set of multiple stories about the heroes of ancient Arabia. I skipped book one so I may have missed some information, but I did not notice any big gaps in the stories because of my lack of knowledge. I found each one of these stories enlightening; I never had read anything about Arabia before. I can honestly say that even though this is not the type of book I normally read I was very glad I read it. The stories are all a decent length not too long nor too short and they all keep you at the edge of your seat.

Plague of Angels

Plague of Angels (The Descended, #1)Plague of Angels by John Patrick Kennedy
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Plague of Angels (The Descended, #1) by John Patrick Kennedy is book onto itself. I did enjoy this book, but I have to warn you that while it is fiction it draws a good portion of its story from religion. The closest thing I can compare this book to is the TV show Supernatural. If you have watched the show Supernatural and did not have any qualms about how it used angles and GOD in the shows then you will have no problems with the Plague of Angels. I would recommend this book to all supernatural, sci-fy, and all around fiction fans.

Wraithsong (Desirable Creatures, #1)Wraithsong by E.J. Squires
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wraithsong: Desirable Creatures Series by E. J. Squires is a contemporary paranormal young adult romance that is a great book for both teens and adults. Sonia and Anthony were both well written and very believable; I loved how Sonia had to struggle to find out who she is and what she can do, nothing was handed to her on some magical silver plate. The first few chapters are a little slow, but if you stick with the book you will not be disappointed. I really hope Squires continues the series. I would fully recommend this book to any young adult or adult who loves fantasy, romance, adventure ,and the paranormal.

That Frequent Visitor

That Frequent VisitorThat Frequent Visitor by K. Hari Kumar
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

First things first, I bought this book because of the cover. It looked like a creepy horror story and I would not miss such books. But when I started reading, it did not look anything like horror. It had a gloomy element in the beginning and soon there were some fantasy elements, but I was not getting anything horror like until the second half. It’s true, the writer takes a long time in establishing the horror elements, but given the way he has developed the story, I think the timing is worth it. The moment horror begins, the thrill factor simply won’t stop and before you know you are totally on all fours to find out the mystery behind the horror.
That Frequent Visitor is a story narrated by an Englishman’s ghost to a young Anglo Indian girl called Shiuli. This story is set up in the colonial period of British India and we get to see lot of interesting facts about the period ranging from the World War 1 to granting of independence to India. But those are just the backdrop; the real story is about a psycho legend who spells doom upon whoever breaches his property. At times, it is kind of typical plot but then the author hari kumar uses so many varying literary devices and facts that the story hardly seems like fiction. I liked the story and I needed lot of patience to sit through the first fifty or so pages, but after that it’s a tsunami!

Doctor Who: The Drosten's Curse

Doctor Who: The Drosten's CurseDoctor Who: The Drosten's Curse by A.L. Kennedy
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

"I received this book from Blogging for Books for this honest review."
While the book was slow to start once the Doctor appeared everything move a lot faster. The book had me pulled in tight from the moment Bryony rescued Putta and the Doctor form being swallowed alive by the golf course. I loved how Bryony was a strong female character that did not need rescue, but could and would rescue herself. I also fell in love with Putta who showed us that not all aliens come to Earth to destroy humans. Overall I greatly enjoyed reading this book and I would love to see more of Bryony and Putta especially with a newer Doctor.
