Balancing the Scales – Read More Female Authors in 2014

Balancing the Scales – Read More Female Authors in 2014 

It still astounds me sometimes that the literary world is not equal, that people are necessarily inclined to undertake a specific effort in reading more books by female authors, that women in the genre are still treated as though they don’t belong. Somewhere along the line, it became a bad thing to be a female […]

Warning: Spoilers ahead for those who have not read the first book, Angelfall. (If not, what are you waiting for, the apocalypse?! Just kidding…well, not really.) Had enough of the cookie-cutter, dystopian YA novels of late? Looking for something off-the-wall? How about some agnostic angels with a generous helping of horror? Then, look no further […]

I rarely purchase a book on impulse – I like to study the form, as it were, to have an idea of what I’m about to get into – but this is exactly what I did with Holly Black’s White Cat. My first reason was seeing it high on the ebook best-seller list, the second […]

Urban Fantasy versus Paranormal Romance

Urban Fantasy versus Paranormal Romance 

These two extremely popular sub genres are so often confused and debated, I thought a closer examination would be useful and interesting. Similarities Both are types of speculative fiction, involving fantasy elements (vampires, weres, shifters, demons, succubus, magi, etc.) in a real world setting. Both appeal to not only fantasy readers but also to romance […]

Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea by April Genevieve Tucholke

Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea by April Genevieve Tucholke

This is YA fantasy with a dash of horror, although, being in the fantasy genre, the horror part can be fairly debatable. Perhaps it is the YA aspect that renders the characters and events to be on the creepy side. For me, it was just a sense of eeriness throughout the book, like you just […]

Urban/paranormal fantasy? Female protagonist? Vampires and werewolves? I know what you’re thinking. It’s going to be tough to get through this without making the obvious comparison. So I won’t even try. Twilight happened. For good or for ill, let’s accept it and move on. Still with me? Good. You won’t be sorry. The last time […]

So, this is one of the newest Young Adult titles to come out of Tor Teen this year. While perusing the bookstore on my birthday with my fiancé, I noticed the lovely jacket cover (pictured below). Because it is human nature, and we all judge everything first by appearance, I was immediately intrigued by the […]

“There are many shades of gray between good and evil, Jenny, and the lighter shades are to be preferred, if we cannot have pure white.” Alexander Death is the third and final book in the Paranormals series by J. L. Bryan, and it was a fantastic conclusion to the series. It manages to bring the […]

And he did something that he later wouldn’t believe he had the courage to do. He kissed Esmeralda, the mysterious Latin girl with the supernatural power, right on the lips. Then slipped the gold Indian-head coin into her hand. She stared at it. “That’s for you,” he whispered. “I love you.” As one could see […]
