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.

Ancestral Revenge


I received a copy of the book from the author in exchange for an honest review.


I found Vicki Leigh’s Catch Me When I Fall to be hauntingly brilliant! It hooked me from the very first page.


The characters in Leigh’s story of Nightmares and Sweet Dreams stayed with me long after I closed the book. This well-written imaginative story had beautiful, well-developed characters. My favorites were Daniel and Kayla. Their emotions bled right off the pages. Their emotions triggered the sympathy button for me. I felt bad for all the Dreamcatchers and Dreamweavers and how they came into existence. Seth and Tabbi stuck out for me. Such noble actions from those two. You have to love them.


Leigh did a wonderful job on creating creepy, evil villains. Thankfully, I am not prone to Nightmares (even I did I’d want Daniel as my Dreamcatcher…read the book!), and was able to sleep after reading her book before bed.


Catch Me When I Fall is such a creative book. Are you familiar with dream catchers? No. Go to this page to read a little: Click for info on dream catchers


Hopefully we’re on the same page. Now, you can understand the creativity behind Leigh’s book. Even the cover reminds me of a dream catcher. Brilliant!


I highly recommend Catch Me When I Fall! There’s hold your breath action, intrigue and even a serious plot twist. I had the same reaction Daniel had when the twist happened. Oh, and there is romance…duh! I loved this book and can’t wait for the next one.
