    1. DNF-60%I received this novel from Net Galley in exchange for an honest review.I hate dnf'ing a book but unfortunately, I just cannot continue on anymore, I've given it the best shot I can. When I read the synopsis I thought this would be a book I'd love, especially being a fan of all things Supernatural/Paranormal. Unfortunately, I didn't like the writing much, and the pacing felt off (some parts were too slow, others ran through too quickly). The characters didn't feel very well developed, and [...]

    2. Okkkkkkkk. so this was awesome. But now I need more. Like whattt. Amazing read, and nice and quick as well. Loved the main character Ellicia, but a little far fetched as well. (view spoiler)[Chosen One. Angel. Reincarnation!!! What!!! (hide spoiler)] But still an excellent book to read. I cannot wait until I get my hands on book 2 and find out what happens, because that ending Thank you to Net Galley, the Publisher and of course the Author for giving me a chance to read this amazzzzing book. < [...]

    3. I recieved this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. I like the storyline but to me, the story just doesn't flow, like the pace of it is off, too fast. It has potential to be a really good story though.

    4. *I received an advanced reading copy for an honest review***Also SPOILERS**So last year after years of my friends begging me to watch, I sat down and began the tedious task of watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer TV show for the first time. I am not ashamed to say that I thought it was ridiculous and I am not a fan, despite my being a total fan of Joss Whedon. The story was alright, the characters were meh, and for a show that claims to be all about feminism there was a lot of sexist things in it. [...]

    5.    After the accident (and murder) that killed her father, Ellicia’s life has turned upside down. Between the monsters she thought wasn’t real and therapies to make sure she wasn’t insane, to transferring to AlleyHill High and meeting the vampire Jason, the angel Nathaniel, the asher (vampire, werewolves and ghosts hunters) Deana. Who’s to say that life will get easier?    Oops! I almost forgot! Ellicia Wayfield, daughter of Jeremiah and Lillian Wayfield, is also the Protector of t [...]

    6. My blog - lfbooks/*Rubs face* Where to start? I was never so happy in my life to finish a book. The end dream scene would have been perfect, if it was used. That was the only good thing about the book in my opinion. The whole book build up this whole fight for the end, which lasted. One second let me go count. 6.5 pages.There was so much of a rush to add all these different elements to the paranormal, it just made it confusing. Why add so much? Focusing on one or two would have made the story so [...]

    7. Originally published on my blog: Nonstop Reader.The Becoming of Ellicia Wayfield is book 1 of the Winged One series by Kemdi Ik from Kay & Unruly Press, released 22 Sept, 2015.It's a YA urban fantasy with a high school and town full of supernatural beings (vampires/angels/werewolves etc) and supernatural hunters called 'ashers'. Ellicia herself is a protector (of the hell gates, what that involves is never precisely stated in the first book). I understand sarcasm and snark seem to be quite p [...]

    8. This is simply a case of it not being to my expectations. I expected it to be a much funnier then what I got. I guess urban fantasy and paranormal only works for me when it simply is much funnier than it seems.And well, this just doesn’t cut it. Ellicia, she has very little interesting things about her. I thought that perhaps she will be more active and at least more snarky in a way that I wanted it.But it never had the same kind of effect that I wanted in it. And that although the world does [...]

    9. 3.5 -I was not sure about this book after all the reviews on it, but it was interesting to me. It did seem to be missing some of the depth for the characters and be a little fast paced at times but I thought the overall plot was interesting I would read the next book in this series. Thank you NetGalley for allowing me to read this and write a honest review.

    10. This completely revised book, now with a new title (The Becoming of Ellicia Wayfield. Formerly, Alleyhill: The Becoming), is finally out. Yay! Read more here.Main genres: young adult fantasy, coming of age, paranormal

    11. I recieved a free copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.Unrated due to DNFing at 22%I didn't enjoy this book, there was no build up of suspense, the storyline was hard to follow and the main character was extremely unlikeable. It felt like someone attempting to combine the most popular elements from well known and well loved fandoms but not injecting anything new or fresh. It disappoints me to see portions of the Buffyverse included so obviously and without any origin [...]
