Sophie and Max

Antoinette Corum

Rating: 5 Shrimps!

Antoinette Corum takes us on a fun adventure in Sophie and Max.  After being attacked in an alley, spacetime changes a scientist into a cat.  She is taken in by a kind old man whose dog Max doesn’t like her but is her only ally in returning her to human form.  This is a fun book kind of reminding me of classics like Homeward Bound.  Corum’s writing is perfectly descriptive making Sophie and Max perfect for any animal lovers out there!

To Kill a Mocking Dog

Angela Cowan

Rating: 4 Shrimps!

Angela Cowan takes us on a wonderfully absurd adventure in To Kill a Mocking Dog.  Marty Hollis is a serial killer who has recently died.  When a strange being called Mr. Scarlet gives him a chance to live again provided he saves someone’s life, he takes it (with plans of his own).  Marty makes a good antihero and the plot has some great twists.  Cowan also laces everything fantastically with voice making To Kill a Mocking Dog fast-paced, interesting, and fun!

Ariella’s Escape

Carolee Croft

Rating: 5 Shrimps!

I love a good romance set within a greater plot!  In Carolee Croft’s Ariella’s Escape, Ariella is a warrior baroness.  During her conquests, she is gifted Demetrius, a pleasure slave.  But when Ariella is betrayed and threatened, Demetrius is the only one she can trust.  I like the adventure of Ariella’s Escape and the growing passion between Ariella and Demetrius.  This one’s perfect for lovers of fantasy and romance alike!

Rating: 4 Shrimps!

Everyone struggles when they get a new sibling or roommate.  In Ellie Crowe’s Harold and the Poopy Little Puppy, Harold the dog must adjust to Prince, an adorable little puppy, especially when he gets blamed for Prince’s mischief.  The story is fun and has a good moral making Harold perfect for children and any dog lovers out there!

Exiles of Babylon

Eugene Cundiff

Rating: 4 Shrimps!

New York has fallen apart in Eugene Cundiff’s Exiles of Babylon.  Moran and Kurt are trying to make due on the mean streets of Babylon, not an easy thing to do when their powers attract unwanted attention, and especially not when they run into some mysterious strangers who also have powers.  Cundiff’s story is gritty and exciting and I enjoyed the dynamic between Morgan and Kurt.  This one’s great for anyone who enjoyed Escape from New York or loves post apocalyptic lit!

Red Dale Ray

Debra Cunningham

Rating: 4 Shrimps!

Ray Bowler is in for a sobering ride in Debra Cunningham’s Red Dale Ray.  After a bit of a binger, Ray is ordered to an alcohol free counselling camp where he encounters a slew of quirky characters.  Cunningham’s writing is plucky and fun and her story is full of character and heart.  Check out Red Dale Ray if you’re looking for a bit of humor and some touching moments!

Take a dive into virtual reality and the human heart in Davon Custis’ The Memory of Lost Dreams.  This dystopian novel rockets us into the action and mystery as Malik Soules explores a mysterious virtual world.  Custis has great description and voice and I really enjoyed the tone of discovery Lost Dreams offered.  If you love dystopian lit, definitely check this one out!

Rating: 4 Shrimps!

Mikey Alston is in for a rough trip in J.S. Edge’s Elephant Shoe.  After surviving a car wreck that killed his parents and scarred his best friend Tate, Mikey must find some way back to emotional recovery, for him and for Tate.  This book is emotional and I loved the journey as well as the emerging romance.  I hope to see more of Mikey and Tate in the future!  This one’s great for anyone who loves a good emotionally challenging story!

Grace Pace

Joshua Edwards

Rating: 5 Shrimps!

Do you need to slow down because life is going just too fast?  Or perhaps you need a speed boost?  Joshua Edwards offers some encouragement and spiritual guidance in Grace Pace.  This Christian-centered self help guide is written with almost poetic description and offers a lot of great life tips mixed with Biblical wisdom.  I enjoyed Edwards’ insights and writing and would recommend Grace Pace to anyone looking for a little encouragement!

Mfonemana Uduak

Rating: 4 Shrimps!

Mfonemana Uduak plunges us into a cool fantasy world in Lucy Wickshire.  Lucy comes from a lineage of strong and deadly women, but her journey will stretch her to her limits like never before.  Lucy is a cool character and Uduak brings the world to life with great descriptions.  Lucy Wickshire is great for anyone who loves fantasy, especially stories with a strong female lead!

Let There Be War

Samantha Eklund

Rating: 5 Shrimps!

Samantha Eklund takes us on one hell of a ride in Let There Be War.  Addie and her friend Mel are visiting New York when the apocalypse breaks out.  It’s zombies and monsters and more in this cool action run, and Eklund slowly ratchets up the tension along a twisting plot.  This one is gritty, fun, and perfect for any post apocalypse lovers out there!

Snow

Mikayla Elliot

Rating: 4 Shrimps!

Mikayla Elliot gives us a rich vampire world in Snow.  Neva has been plunged into the world of vampires.  Torn between two moralities, she must make a choice, a choice that will affect the future of all vampires.  I really enjoyed the intrigue attached to Snow and the depth Elliot poured into Neva.  This one’s perfect for anyone that loves vampires or the supernatural!

Descendants

Rae Else

Rating: 5 Shrimps!

Rae Else builds an exciting new pantheon in Descendants.  El has been cursed.  Hunted and forced to flee from her family and everything she loves, she finds herself trapped in a war between two ancient factions.  Else’s fresh take on mythology and choice to focus on those cursed by the gods versus the gods themselves was immediately appealing to me.  Add into it smooth character development and a deep rich lore and Descendants quickly became one of my favorites!  Check this one out, especially if you love mythology and YA!

The Girl on the Mountain

Carol Ervin

Rating: 5 Shrimps!

Carol Ervin captures the triumphs, tribulations, and feel of the late 1800s perfectly in The Girl on the Mountain.  Life at this time was real rough for women, and the same holds true as May Rose Long must contend with company hardliners and brothels while caring for herself and a young girl.  This novel is heartfelt and powerful and I look forward to seeing where Ervin goes with it next!
