Will Poole's Island by Tim Weed is a descriptive adventurous tale of growth, friendship, and freedom. A fellow Goodreads user named Troy said "What starts out as a classic coming of age tale unfolds into a meditation on culture clashes, spirituality, freedom, and trust." I completely agree and I could not have said it better myself. The reader gets to go on an adventure with a 17 year old Will and his mentor/friend Squamiset, a Native American. The reader get completely immersed into the vividly described story. This happens to be why I liked this novel so much. I love when a story is so vividly described that you can clearly see it in your minds eye. I also really liked the characters. They were nicely developed and had many layers to them, even the antagonists. The only reason I did not give this story a full five out of five stars is that it starts out kind of slow, but once you get past the first couple of chapters it becomes very fast paced. I ended up finishing this in like two sittings after it got fast paced. I also really like the supernatural/paranormal aspect to Tim Weed's world, which does not overwhelm the story. I would recommend this historical fiction read to anyone. Even if you do not typically read historical fiction.

I will leave the Goodreads links as well as the links to purchase the novel for those who are interested below.

Thanks for reading!

Anyone? by Angela Scott

I finished this book in about three hours...
I also tweeted her to see if there would be a sequel...which I want really bad...

"The end of the world? That’s the stuff of Hollywood blockbusters and deep philosophical exercises in school. No need to sweat it. So when sixteen-year-old Tess’s doomsday-dad builds a bomb shelter in their suburban backyard, everyone thinks he’s gone crazy….
…Until fire rains down from the sky, sinking whole cities into colossal craters and setting much of the world ablaze.
Tess’s dad gives her a few short minutes to gather her emergency bag and her freaked-out kitten, then leads her outside and into the underground shelter. Terrified, the last thing she expects is for him to leave her there all alone, but he has no choice—he must find her missing brother. Before leaving, he makes Tess promise to keep the hatch door shut, not to open it for anyone but him, and to stay put until he returns.
But he forgot to tell her one thing: What is she supposed …

Dewey's 24 Hour Read-A-Thon Tips for All!

Hey everyone! I hope you all are having a great month. I am super excited since the Dewey's 24 Hour Read-A-Thon is almost here. I have only done this once, but I learned a lot during that 24 hour period. Now I am going to share my advice with you.

1. Read What YOU Want to Read.

This is incredibly important. If you are not reading something you want to read and your pushing yourself to read it, then put it down and take a break. Read something you want or take a nap. If your doing this, it could led to a reading slump or watching Netflix... I totally did that! Not that there is anything wrong with taking a break! Or watching Netflix...


2. Take Breaks, Even Naps!

This is key to having fun during this read-a-thon! If your eyes start to blur, take a nap. If your hungry or want to watch Netflix for a little bit. Do it! Or you could cheer other people on during the read-a-thon. If you didn't sign up to be a cheerleader, join #TeamRogue and cheer. :D Just do not over work yourself.

Night of All Evil by J.M. Shorney

Night of All Evil was a good gothic horror novel about a witch named Freya that has a dark past that comes back to haunt her and her family. Freya was my favorite character and I really enjoyed reading from her point of view. The thing I liked about her was how she acted in the situations she is placed in. She also is just an interesting person that also happens to be a super powerful witch, which is pretty cool. In fact once I started this novel, I had a hard time putting it down. While I really enjoyed reading the story, the character development was just okay and it was kind of predictable. However, it was still a good read that grabbed my attention and kept me entertained.                                                                                                   Thanks for reading!                                            …
