5 Star Review – You Are Mine by Janeal Falor

5 Star Review – You Are Mine by Janeal Falor

Reviews 2 ★★★★★

I won a copy of You Are Mine in a giveaway and was really excited to read it!  SO glad I did! This is an intense book that will make you want to scream in frustration and horror at some points (in a good way) and will delight you in others.  I absolutely LOVED it! The story follows Serena, a 17-year-old girl who has just come of age – the age at which she can be sold to a warlock as a breeding machine and slave. Serena lives in a society where women are nothing more than property – completely controlled by their overbearing and often abusive warlock husbands. She doesn’t dare dream of happiness – she merely hopes to be sold to a lesser evil than her father. But when her ownership is won by an Envadi barbarian, Serena fears that things will be much worse for her than she ever… Read more »

Review: Poison by Bridget Zinn

Review: Poison by Bridget Zinn

Reviews 5 ★★★★½

Poison is a delightfully cute and light fantasy novel.  The book is published by Disney Hyperion, which makes complete sense because it fits right into their wheelhouse – I could easily see this as a Disney movie!  The book was the perfect diversion from some of the darker fantasy and dystopian novels that I read and I loved it! The story centers around Kyra, a young potions master who is on the run after attempting to murder her best friend, the princess (I won’t spoil why, but she did have good reason).  Kyra believes that she has to finish what she started, so she enlists the help of a cute little tracking pig to help her find the princess (who has been hidden away since the assassination attempt) while simultaneously avoiding the guards (along with her ex-fiance).  Along the way, she meets up with Fred, a sweet and charming guy… Read more »
