Review: Robin in the Hood by Diane Reed

Never have I read a story so unique and captivating as Robin in the Hood! The characters were quirky and some outrageous and I loved every second of it.

At first I had no idea what to expect when a rich privileged girl finds her family broke and breaks her father out of the hospital to keep from being sent away. I was thinking maybe this story would follow the usual rags to riches storyline but then it turned into something totally unexpected. Robin finds herself in a trailer park with a cast of colorful characters and finds she may actually have roots there. As she longs to find out about her family's past she finds herself and love in the process. She may have also found herself becoming a thief. WHAT?!!! But with the beautiful bad boy with a heart of gold, Creek leading the way, I can't blame her for doing some crazy things.

Reed's writing has a mysterious & mystical aspect that left me with the feeling of wonder and intrigue page after page. I simply cannot wait to read the next book in this enchanting YA series.

** I received this book in exchange for my honest review. **

Review: The Vampire In My Dreams by Terry Lee Wilde

When young witch, Marissa goes out looking for a suspected vampire with her best friend, she never would have guessed that what she would actually find was her soul mate. Too bad for Marissa an evil vampess named Lynetta had already set her sights on him and she wouldn't give up easily.

This was a quick,fun read with a sweet yet action packed romance between a young witch and a vampire. I really enjoyed that we get to hear the story from both Marissa and Dominic's point of view. I think this really helped me to feel connected with the characters and ultimately to swoon over Dominic's sincere affection for Marissa.Even the secondary characters have me hoping for a sequel to this captivating YA novel.
