    Becoming Violet

    Kacey Jones is your average young adult working and going to college while saving to go onto university with her friends. She has these recurring nightmares that haunt her and one morning after waking up she realizes she’s not so average after all. When I went into this book I actually had no idea exactly what to expect because the original synopsis was extremely vague and didn’t give much hint as to what the story was about. I was pleasantly surprised that it turned out to be a vampire novel, the more monstrous kind too. The pacing at the start of the novel was pretty good, it set the stage…

    The Line

    The Line is an urban fantasy about a powerful Southern witching family, told from the point of view of Mercy, the family’s black sheep. For the most part I liked Mercy’s character for the majority of the book, I could relate to her and could understand some of the troubles she faced, though by the end there are some inconsistencies in her characterization. There was a love triangle right off the bat which I didn’t care for, the childhood friend and her sister’s boyfriend. Her friend is handsome and dedicated to her, and she knows that she should love him back, but she just doesn’t feel that spark that she…
