Huge Fan of YA and Juvenile Fiction

Wing - ?See all my reviews This review is from: My Wizard Buddy: (Juvenile Fiction) (Fantasy & Magic) (Kindle Edition) I am a huge fan of YA and Juvenile Fiction.

Oh my goodness… Oh no, just no!

***************** Delusional by Scott Spotson http://bookbuddiesph.blogspot.ca/2014/09/review-delusional-by-scott-spotson.html Review: GENERAL: This book is a combination of psychological thriller and action thriller. There's also a hint of romance thriller, if you know what I mean. (And yes, there's a lot of different types of thrillers, they're called sub-genres.) While I was reading this book, it makes my heart beat so fast like I was playing the role of the protagonist and it kept on the edge of my seat. Every chapter offers something and it's really thrilling, in my opinion. I couldn't...

Delivering Entertainment at its Best

http://www.amazon.com/gp/cdp/member-reviews/AEY6JE5NATI5V 5.0 out of 5 stars A tense and gripping thriller, delivering entertainment at its best., August 31, 2014 By Mrs Rachel Tetley - See all my reviews This review is from: Delusional (Kindle Edition) This is one of the most entertaining and enjoyable thrillers I have read for a very long time. I find it really unpleasant to read about subjects such as affairs, and therefore I was a little nervous that I was going to automatically dismiss the storyline, but I was completely wrong. I was totally gripped by the story, which moves along...

Brilliant sequel to Life II

http://www.amazon.com/review/R1URKNKZBRFTPH 5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Sequel to Life II August 22, 2014 By professor Format:Kindle Edition Sometimes I watch a movie and I notice the female lead gesticulating wildly, displaying many emotions through facial expressions, exhibiting every kind of body language, and I think, "My heavens, that lady is really acting her heart out." And that's the problem. She's acting, not `living' the character and so the illusion is lost. Yet one finds other actors so involved in their characters that the acting is totally unobtrusive. And that is good acting. It is the same...

Dedicated Review of The Four Kings

http://www.amazon.com/gp/cdp/member-reviews/A3DJHXIODYF1MJ 3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but needs focus, June 1, 2014 By Pamela L Estes This review is from: The Four Kings (Kindle Edition) The opening chapter really gets your attention and sets the hook. Wizards instantly take over the United States and soon after dispose of almost every nuclear weapon in the world. The story is unpredictable – the wizards forcefully and illegally seized power, yet they did so without killing anyone and seem benevolent. Of course, they’re benevolent now, but they hold absolute power and proclaim they...

Brilliant Novel Idea — Life II

A wish we've all had becomes a brilliant novel idea May 26, 2014 This review is from: Life II (Paperback) A wish we’ve all had, becomes a brilliant idea in Life II As human beings, we’ve all wished we could do it: go back to our youth, knowing what we know now. As authors, some of us have no doubt wondered how this wish might become an idea for a book. In “Life II”, Scott Spotson takes hold of the idea, runs with it, and scores quite the touchdown, in my opinion. Max is a bit north of 40, and unhappy with his career and marriage, though he has two children he loves. When a book he finds...

No turning back… 5-star review of Life II

http://steampunksparrow.blogspot.com/2014/05/life-ii.html 5.0 out of 5 stars  A unique take on time-travel that's not just focused on the sci-fi, May 19, 2014 By Mati Raine (Idaho) This review is from: Life II (Kindle Edition) Of all the stories I've read about time travel, Life II beats them in my opinion. It has a somewhat realistic, heartfelt, and unique look at all the "what-ifs" you would face if you suddenly had the chance to go back in time. Rather than following a renegade time-traveler, and focusing entirely on an action packed plot, Life II follows one man as he gives up his old life...
