Beautiful Demons (Peachville High Demons #1)
I've had this book for a while and I don't know what force made me pick it up this time around, but I am glad I did. Beautiful Demons is the beginning of what it looks like a great series, revolving round Harper and her new life in Peachville. Harper always knew she was different. When she is angry she can make things move with her mind. But arriving at Peachville, she finds out she is not the only special girl. A lot of the successful women of the town seem to have similar powers to ...more

Man, it feels like forever since I’ve posted a review. Life has just been hectic lately. But fear not, I will never give up reading/reviewing. I started this book because my baby sister has been singing its praises and quite honestly, I saw that the first one was free on Amazon and figured I had nothing to lose. I had seen this book before, but the cover didn’t really grab my attention and I don’t like downloading books I’m not s ...more
Beautiful Demons pulls you in from the first page and never lets down in the pacing. It's a fast and very entertaining read. I've been wanting to read this series for a while, because of the pretty covers and titles. Currently Beautiful Demons is available for free, but I don't know how long that will last.
I really liked the main character, Harper Madison. She gets moved in a group home after bouncing around from foster care homes, due to getting into tro
You know you're in the wrong town when a random dude helps you (commands you?) to pick out a backpack that sports the same colors as everyone else.
OR IS IT THE RIGHT TOWN? It's hard for our heroine (or us) to know for sure, because she keeps having her memory altered. Or something. But there are powers. Women have them. Except for the dude. Who she keeps forgetting. In a literal sense. Who begs her no ...more
Beautiful Demons starts off with Harper moving to a new home. She's had a tough life (since weird and dangerous stuff happens wherever she goes) and thi ...more
Harper Madison has not had an easy life, she's been in seven fosters homes in just one year ever since her only adoptive family were victims of a big fire caused by her when she was just 8 years old, and the only thing that can save her from end up in juven ...more
That last chance comes in the form of Shadowford home, a place for girls struggling with the care system.
On the first day of school Harper can see that the cheerleaders rule the social side of the school. They're thought of like queens. Everyone Harper talks too are obsessed with them, but Harper can feel there's something not ...more
This book is definitely a plot driven book. It's more about the twists and turns of it all than it is about its characters. In fact, the only fleshed out, or character with beginnings of being fleshed out, is Harper. Harper is a prett ...more
This wasn't exactly what I expected. It was far from it, actually.
I went into this book knowing I'd get mad, and a little confused. But I didn't expect to be mind-blown.
I am very upset with the ending, because, well...I like Jackson better. In alll honesty I hope drake dies or something terrible happens to him, because...well HE ISN'T JACKSON!!!
Umm....I was upset when Jackson didn't jump in ...more
I'm also excited to see more Jackson!!! Need more Harper and Jackson time! Forge ...more

The first thing that caught my attention was... THE COVER! right!
Witches are ok, but they are not my favorite subject. Though this one is a very entertaining story and so fast paced that I seriously loved it!
(I read the 5 published books in the series in 4 days!)
There is only one word to describe this book: ADDICTIVE!
It's a great introduction for a series, we get to know the background of the story and it clear ...more
Harper was a great character at the beginning of the novel, but I have a hard time believing that she succumbed to the popularity contest an ...more
What really drew me into the story was the whole idea of a Stepford-like town where everything seems perfect on the outside, but has a sinister feel to it and a dark ...more
This book was awesome!
It was like a combination of Charmed, The Secret Circle, and Twilight.
Not really Twilight, just in the fact that there was a group of extremely beautiful people that everyone admired and envied, basically.
Harper Madison has gotten kicked out o ...more
Definitely a 4.5 and I'm not sure what is stopping me from lighting that 5th star this time around. The first time I really didn't know where the series was going and since it was a short book I think that's the reason for the 4 stars. This time knowing where everything is leading I should light the fifth star. The book is engaging, the characters very likable, and there is enough of a story line that keeps you guessing "what the heck is going on here?" Every time you t ...more

"They're popular because they're cheerleaders," he said.
I rolled my eyes. "What is it with this town and cheerleaders?”
