Harper Madison isn't like other girls. She has extraordinary powers, but her inability to control them has gotten her kicked from so many foster homes she's lost count. Shadowford Home is her last chance, and she hopes Peachville High will be the fresh start she needs. But when evidence ties her to the gruesome murder of a ...more
I used to read a lot of Young Adult, Fiction and Fantasy books before. My little sister mentioned to me a few weeks ago that she started reading this genre. I decided that it would be a good thing to join her in this adventure, and to read some of the books she is reading.
I have also asked for recommendations on the bookshelf that I made especially for this, and received so many responses. Thank you to all of you who contributed, and this is the ...more
The story opens with Harper Madison, a highly powered and beautiful young female (of course), coming to a new home for wayward girls who get kicked out of other foster homes. New town, new home, new school, new rules. It appears she’s come home to roost here though, since this turns out to be the school and town where it’s all started for her.
The story and writing style eventually improve after the first few chapters, but overall the story is too juv ...more
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

Boy was I wrong, now don’t mistake that for saying it was amazing. For the length of the book it was very good. The characters were all pretty good, I feel like we need more Jackson though and enough of the cheerleaders. It almost reminded me of the season Coven from American Horror Story.
There are a few twists in this one, not huge mind altering twists, but twists nonetheless.
Harper is a very ...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
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
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
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
I really enjoyed this one - a great YA paranormal read. High-school, and yeh I know, that comes with the resident bitch(s). Because, life's like that. I know I've read this one before, but could only remember the beginningish.
And yeh, the orphan thing, agaiiin. But's it works out fairly good in this work, although you know, as usual, it's all about her mother.
Still, a good read. Mandatory sexy guys, beaut ...more

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
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
I'm a very generous rater. I am a VERY generous rater. I think my average rating is like almost four. Or four something or whatever. I am very generous in my ratings.
Plus, I tend to avoid bad books like the plague, and if I do read a bad book, I always tend to give stars for the potential that the book had.
Had nothing going for it.
I don't even know what to say.
It was an abnormally short read. Only a hundred something pages. I only read it because the first t ...more
Sarra Cannon did an amazing job bringing to life Harper Madison, a foster kid who has special abilities. When she moves to Peachville, not everything is as it seems, which Madison soon finds out. I wondered what happened when things went from bad to perfect for Harper, but I definitely didn't see the end coming! OMG! Wow! That ju ...more
I'm also excited to see more Jackson!!! Need more Harper and Jackson time! Forge ...more
This was a great escape from a super busy time of the year, and I immediately found myself drawn into Harper's drama. Sarra's strength is clearly characterization, and really, wherever these characters would be, they ...more
What I Liked
The main premise of this book--following a girl with magical abilities as she is placed in a group home in a town full of other magic-possessing women--is intriguing. Though I'm not a big fan of fantasy or paranormal books, this book did not totally ward ...more

Picked this book up for free on Amazon. I like free books. I also like reading indie authors as much as I love reading best-selling authors. It gives me a chance, to help spread the word about so many talented people

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