I love a good book! Young Adult, New Adult, Adult and nearly any genre. If it’s well-written, I’ll read it. And, I love to talk about what I’ve written.


I have a WIP–a new adult dystopian novel. I’m also exploring short fiction.

Find my reviews here, on Wordpress, on Tumblr, on Facebook (The Word Smithe), Goodreads.com, and Amazon.


If you’re an author and you’d like me to review your book, just drop me a line. I’ll be happy to read an ARC. I always give an honest review. And, even if I didn’t particularly go crazy for your story, I will stay positive. I believe something redeeming can be found in nearly every book.

Wicka: The Chronicles of Elizabeth Blake

Wicka: The Chronicles of Elizabeth Blake - Christy Deveaux I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

The premise of this book is good. I was attracted based on subject matter and the main character lives in Michigan. Unfortunately, it read like a long narrative. I wanted more dialogue.

I appreciated the characters. The characters need to deliver the story instead of one person telling us what happened.
