Welcome To My Blog

Welcome to my blog! I invite you to enter into the splendiferous world of the library where I will share my knowledge and love of books I have read, as well as send out praise to the authors of these treasures. Most of the books reviewed on my site will be Teen or YA Sci-Fi/Fantasy, though every now and then I'll throw in an adult book just to shake things up.

The Goddess Test by Aimee Carter

From GoodReads: t's always been just Kate and her mom—and her mother is dying. Her last wish? To move back to her childhood home. So Kate's going to start at a new school with no friends, no other family and the fear her mother won't live past the fall.
Then she meets Henry. Dark. Tortured. And mesmerizing. He claims to be Hades, god of the Underworld—and if she accepts his bargain, he'll keep her mother alive while Kate tries to pass seven tests.
Kate is sure he's crazy—until she sees him bring a girl back from the dead. Now saving her mother seems crazily possible. If she succeeds, she'll become Henry's future bride, and a goddess.

From the second I read the blurb about this book I was intrigued, and now, 3 hours after starting it (and finishing it) I can honestly say that the blurb did not do it justice.  
This book was amazing!! There was this constant underlying mystery to solve, a who-done-it with very few clues.  The story was so unique and well-written that from the moment I picked it up, I couldn't put it down! I was torn through emotions just as the main character, Kate, was.  Constantly wondering what was coming nest.  I think the second book to this series will be even more exciting than the first and I cannot wait to read it! A round of applause for Aimee Carter, brava!
