Hey again guys! We've been busy this month reading and writing lots of review for the site. You may have noticed that we have changed the ste about a bit (color wise) and are adding new pages like "contact us" and "about us" which will be coming soon.

Not only that, but we have been in contact with author of "Greatest of These" (review below) Sarah Fall and she has agreed to do an interview for us!!! It will be posted soon so look forward to it!

I bought a new toy that I am in LOVE with. My brand new Kobo ereader I named Ira!So I can buy even more books and bring them everywhere with me.

Last but not least!! My school was able to bring in a author for the students on Friday April 29! She use to be a teacher at my school and she read passages from her books to us, talked to us, Jean Raae Baxter, thank you for coming, it was great to meet you. And I was able to skip my next class and get time to sit with her and read more of her book and talk with her and some teacher, an amazing day!

The Greatest of These- Sarah Fall

Tile: The greatest of these

Author: Sarah Fall

Publisher: Ebook (buy hardcopy on author's wedsite)

Pages: There is no exact page count given. Approx word count is 370,841.

From the back of the book: Love is the greatest of all...

Charlotte Overholt is used to responsibilities in her teenage life, but they're quickly multiplied when she learns her father has Early Onset Alzheimer's Disease. As "Charlie" adjusts to these changes, she becomes acquainted with her father's good friend, Adam Clark. When Charlie's friendship with Adam blooms into something unexpected, Adam suddenly finds himself in a situation he never dreamt possible.

Middle-aged Adam Clark is a confirmed bachelor, settled in his ways with no hope of ever changing. But this unassuming Master Plumber has a big secret that not even Charlie can anticipate, and when it comes to light, no one in their small town will ever be the same again.

Review: A few years ago while looking for something good to read I stumbled across this one website, filled with books of romance and true love. While trying to think of a new book to read for the site and bring attention to a 'new author' I say new because not many know of her. I suddenly remembered Sarah Fall and her books that I had loved so much a few years ago.

When I began re- reading I will admit I was bored. The opening chapter is very slow, giving background on the characters and their family. This is needed information but it was slightly boring. As the book moves on into the next chapter the story picks up speed and the plot becomes more exciting. But the book doesn't really begin until Charlie meets Adam.

Now, Adam Clark, can I just say YUMMY! Why are there no guys like him anymore.. Charlie I wish I were her at some points in this books, the romance is one I wish I could have.

I hadn't already read this book I don't think I would have continued with it. I highly recommend for people to continue reading as this is one of the best e-books I have read online. And if you can't read the books online and would like to order one or simple want to just HAVE the book to read, you can order the book online (instructions on Sarah Falls website)

Sarah Fall is a Christian Romance writer but doesn't push God on you as a reader like some books do. If you are a person who either doesn't believe or is unsure I would still recommenced this book to you and even to those who do believe, this is a must read!

Rate: For the reasons I have given above I rate this book from 1, I couldn't finish it to 10, unputdownable, a 9 1/2.

Demonglass - Rachel Hawkins

First thing is first, if you haven't read Hex Hall WTH is wrong with you? I mean how can you go wrong with a school for deliquent witches, fairies, and shifters? And the romance oh god...Oh and demons did I forget to mention demons?

Well Demonglass does not disappoint, though through most of the book it doesn't seem like a whole lot of "action-y" stuff is going on until the last quarter or so, but the way it is written keeps you interested and on your toes.

Now I literally just finished reading Demonglass, and I am all over the place, I'm talking ALL OVER THE PLACE! This book made my pulse race, it made me yell at it or rather certain characters, it made me SQUEE! and Awwww and it made me laugh. Sophie's smart-ass comebacks and her sarcasm are so well written,actually the entire book is well written.

So if you haven't read Demonglass yet, you damn well better!

If I were to use a rating system, Demonglass is definitely a 50 out of 10.

Fallen- Lauren Kate

There's something achingly familiar about Daniel Grigori.

Mysterious and aloof, he captures Luce Price's attention from the moment she sees him on her first day at the Sword & Cross boarding school in sultry Savannah, Georgia. He's the one bright spot in a place where cell phones are forbidden, the other students are all screw-ups, and security cameras watch every move.

Even though Daniel wants nothing to do with Luce--and goes out of his way to make that very clear--she can't let it go. Drawn to him like a moth to a flame, she has to find out what Daniel is so desperate to keep secret . . . even if it kills her.

Before I bought this book I read the back blurb to the second in the series and I had to read the first. It took me a few days before I could get back out for book shopping and this was the first book I looked for when I got to the book store. I bought it and started reading it right when I got into the car.

And yet even though I liked this book it took me a while to finish reading it, for a few reasons really. I forgot it at Ashley's house for a few weeks, I started reading another book while I waited to get this one back from Ash, then I started school and I had lots of work to do, as I was busy transferring back to my old school after being at a school that focused on baking, it took me a while to get back into the swing of this school again, and I found I just didn't have time to begin reading this one again. Yet the entire time I didn't have it and was reading other books I would stop and think for a while about this book, the plot and characters. I would remember a scene from the book like it were a movie playing in my head... when I got the book back I finished it within the next few days and I was left wanting more and cannot wait to go buy the next in the series!

I rate this book from 1, I couldn't finish it to 10, unputdownable, a 10. I would recommend this book to anybody who is looking for a good read as this was exactly that and more.
