The Art Of Hearing Heartbeats by Jan-Philipp Sendker

The Art of Hearing Heartbeats is not a book to be passed up or overlooked.  I recently read a blog declaring this book would leave you breathless and incapable of setting the book down, and that blog was indeed correct. I did a quick search on the book and decided to give it a try. I hit up the closest Half Price Books and gave the book a whirl the next day during school.  The first chapter was a little confusing and slow, however after getting through that I was immediately taken-a-back by the intriguing and captivating tale that the author began to tell.  The book ponders the question, what happened to Julia’s father who had disappeared a few years back? Julia, the main character, stumbles across one clue that might lead to the answers that she has been looking for, a letter written from her father addressed to a mysterious Burmese woman, Mimi.  Julia finds an old acquaintance of her father’s and listens to him as he tells the story of her fathers life in order to uncover the mystery of his disappearance.  Her father’s, Tin Win, story follows the love story of himselve and Mi Mi, two disabled children who see the world from the most beautiful perspective of all; love.   Continue reading “The Art Of Hearing Heartbeats by Jan-Philipp Sendker”


Eve: Review of the chilling and murderous story written by Iris Johnson

Eve is the 13th book in the Eve Duncan series by Iris Johnson.  Eve is a gripping, modern thriller told through the eyes of a mother with a missing child and a tangled, complex romance.  Eve fights to find her daughter’s remains, risking her relationships and her soul in the process.  I really enjoyed this book because it took your breath away with the chilling and murderous tales of the antagonist, Black.   Continue reading “Eve: Review of the chilling and murderous story written by Iris Johnson”

Review of Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard

What a thrill this book was to read! From the beginning I knew, only someone with great imagination could have written this book. It begins with a gripping tale of a world millions of years from now, when everything we know now is destroyed, and the times of kings and queens are brought back through the war and destruction. Red Queen tells the story of a young girl who is forced to face dangers that are deeper than the magic of her world, but dangers
that are filled with regret, agony, and worst of all betrayal (how yummy). Continue reading “Review of Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard”

Review: A Job From Hell

You know those free books that you run into on iBooks?  This is where I found A Job From Hell by Jayde Scott.

A Job From Hell begins with 17 year old, Amber, who gets a job in Scotland as a maid for the mysterious, startling, handsome, and young billionaire Aiden McAlleister.  Amber is strangely drawn to Aiden, because of an ancient supernatural bond that causes the two to immediately fall in love.

Overview: LUX novels by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Praise for Lux novels!

Obsidian, Onyx, Opal, Origin, and  Opposition.

Only way to describe these books- AMAZING

In the first book, Obsidian, Jennifer L. Armentrout wrangles the reader into her series without the readers knowledge.  Immediately the smug (and all human beings can agree GORGEOUS) Daemon Black makes you fall in love with him.  From the moment Katy and Daemon meet, they bicker like an eighty year old couple, continuously going at each others throats.  His tough exterior fools everyone except Katy Swartz. Through out the book, Katy is highly against Daemon.   Continue reading “Overview: LUX novels by Jennifer L. Armentrout”
