I must say that I find television very educational. The minute somebody turns it on, I go to the library and read a book. --Groucho Marx

The Demon Trapper 's Daughter Review


                              The Demon Trapper's Daughter by Jana Oliver      

 Publisher: St. Martin's Griffin
 ISBN-10: 0312614780
 ISBN-13: 978-0312614782

                            I gave this book 5/5 Stars

Riley Blackthorne is a teenage/still in high school/female demon trapper and demons are running loose in Atlanta. Riley is determined to learn everything she can about trapping even though she is the only female trapper and her world is suddenly turned on its head.

This book sucked me in right from the very beginning, it only took me a few hours to finish it. Jana Oliver has written the most believable characters I have ever read, which made the book even better. The feelings and thoughts made me believe what I was reading was actually real. The depth of emotions from the characters left me speechless. Though I feel as if the book could have been longer, it felt to me like the book wasn’t finished.
The Demon Trapper's daughter is a book that you wouldn’t want to miss out on. It has everything you want and more, a tough likeable heroine, demons, drama, romance, fighting, and an ending that will have you counting the days until you get more. This book is amazing from beginning to end and the second book needs to hurry and get in my hand.

Save The Date Review

  •          Save the Date by Jenny B. Jones

  • Publisher: Thomas Nelson
  • ISBN-10: 1595545395
  • ISBN-13: 978-1595545398


                     I gave this book a 5/5 stars

Save the Date by Jenny B. Jones is honestly not the type of book I normally read and I wasn’t so sure that I wanted to even read it. But I said “hey what the heck?” Now Can I tell you that I am so glad I picked it up.

The book follows Lucy Wiltshire who runs an non-profit group and Alex Sinclair, former professional football star turned politician. Lucy loses funding for her group home for young girls who have aged out of the foster care system. Now it is up to Lucy to find more money before she has to tell the girls that they are once again homeless. Alex left the football field and is now running for congress but his playboy past just won’t let him go. So Lucy in a desperate need reluctantly agrees to pose as Alex’s fiancée to help his changes of winning congress, in exchange for the financial help she needs.

Though this was a Christian book and that is not the type of books I read I found myself reluctant to put it down and eager to find out what comes next. This book had me laughing out loud within the first few pages. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good and funny book, that makes you feel a whole bunch of feelings at one time. I found that I could really see the depths of the characters feelings and thoughts.
