“If this nation is to be wise as well as strong, if we are to achieve our destiny, then we need more new ideas for more wise men reading more good books in more public libraries. These libraries should be open to all—except the censor. We must know all the facts and hear all the alternatives and listen to all the criticisms. Let us welcome controversial books and controversial authors. For the Bill of Rights is the guardian of our security as well as our liberty.”

– John Fitzgerald Kennedy

Rhapsodic

Rhapsodic (The Bargainer, #1)Rhapsodic by Laura Thalassa

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


This book deserves much more than 5 stars. I would give it 10 or 20.....50. It was that good and I don't say that lightly.

I hardly have words to talk about this story. Callie and the Bargainer have a past, and through this past we see their life and their relationship develop like no other. Callie is a siren that is in need of help and the Bargain is there to strike a bargain. From that point their lives are never the same. Their story is woven together in perfect ebb and flow. The reader is drawn into a story that you don't ever want to leave. I would wake up at night thinking about these characters. And I can hardly wait to continue this story.

A Stir of Bones

A Stir of Bones (Red Heart of Memories, #.5)A Stir of Bones by Nina Kiriki Hoffman

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


This book was absolutely heartbreaking and hopeful all at the same time.

Susan who lives in a home full of secrets finally makes friends and finds a house with its own secrets. While this story is about children it is not a children's story. And the story is so gripping it is hard to put down. I wasn't ready for the story to end and I would like to know what happens with Susan and her family but from what I understand the second book does not pick up here.


This is a story full of magic, friendship, sadness and hope. My heart ached when it ended.

Venomous

Venomous (Alien Warrior, #1)Venomous by Penelope Fletcher

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


I absolutely loved this book! But I warn you that it is not for everyone. There is a lot of violence in different parts of the book. It is also a reverse-harem with alien partners and very long (650+ pages) but I hated to see it end.


Lumen is abducted by aliens and sold into slavery where she is deemed unworthy and given to the warrior that remains after a bloody fight to the death. With no way to communicate with the winner of the battle they have to find a way to communicate in order for her to survive. This is the beginning of her journey and it is a roller coaster ride from the very beginning. It certainly made me with that I could find my own four armed, reptilian alien hero.
