Wrap-Up for September 2016

Hello out there! I have survived another month of the Wobble Challenge over at Goodreads. We are just about to head into our last challenge and I am ready for the challenge to be completed. Do not get me wrong I am loving the challenge but I am looking forward to reading books for me, ha ha ha, not for completing a challenge. There are a few books that I […]


Omega Rising by Anna Kyle

Omega Rising by Anna Kyle

A truly inspired world development with such attention to the characters! Even the supporting characters were fleshed out and given a truly meaningful part. The story is about shape-shifters, referred to as Joined, and they come from all different walks of life and even religious practices. There are also witches, humans and fae in the mix. This is not just a simple boy meets girl fantasy. There is a complex, […]


A City Dreaming by Daniel Polansky

A City Dreaming by Daniel Polansky

This book felt like a series of short stories with M being the main character and the world he inhabits is unlike anything I have ever read before. It seems to be commentary about M’s life, friends, and the city where he lives. It was very challenging to find the overall plot. If anything I felt that nothing made sense. There is no explanation of the world you find yourself […]

Terrific Tuesday: Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo, Releasing September 27, 2016

I really enjoyed reading the Six of Crows from author Leigh Bardugo! I am really looking forward to reading the next book in this series Crooked Kingdom. I just cannot believe that this day has finally come. As a book collector I already have my signed copy on the way but because I am totally impatient my digital copy should already have been delivered! Synopsis: Kaz Brekker and his crew […]


Race the Darkness by Abbie Roads

Race the Darkness by Abbie Roads

This was one twisted and unexpected story. I could not make up my mind what genre that I would even classify this under. It was foul-mouthed, believably unbelievable and at times nauseating. I loved it! Xander Stone was struck by over 50,000 volts of electricity via a lightning strike and it did not kill him. Instead he has been “marked.” He has a phenomenon known as Lichtenberg figure all over […]

Mini-Reviews from August 2016 Wrap-Up

August was a good month for me. I read a few books that I found to be great reads! There were also some really bad reads. Since there was a lot to choose from this list I decided to separate it by categories/genre. Zombies:   I gave this one a 4 stars. This story was heart breaking! The time transitions are done well and the story itself is believable in […]


Hart Broken by Annie Arcane

Hart Broken by Annie Arcane

This book received five stars from me, which I do not give out all that often. In order for a book to get a five star from me it has to stay with me. Once I close the book do I continue to ponder it or do I just move on, that is what separates a four star from a five star. This book did that for me. From the […]

Black Waters by India R. Adams

When I first began to read this book I understood that it was from Link’s point of view and I was ok with that. What I thought was that his part of the story was going to start from the ending of the previous book Blue Waters. I will say I was a little disappointed that it started before the ending of the previous book. In fact it actually started […]

Magic Binds by Ilona Andrews

Ultimate urban fantasy series!! With every new installment the writing and the characters just improve, how is that even possible after nine books?? This book was very different than the rest though. Kate as we know her has changed fundamentally throughout this story and there has been shifts in the key powers that be. There are plenty of surprises and a few places where your heart will just crush upon […]

Secrets at the Keep by Eric Buffington

I enjoyed this story as much as I did the previous book, The Troven. This story picks up where the previous book left off and it has continued to serve up action and adventure at every turn. We delve further into the mystery of the six magical stones called the stones of power and follow the stories of the surviving members from the first book. What I liked about this […]

Not Quite Perfect by Catherine Bybee

This is my first time reading a novel from Catherine Bybee and I am wondering what rock I have been living under?? I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book! The story is entertaining, light-hearted, and comical but it also held a dark twist to it that although predictable added just the right amount of edge to keep this story from going into the “mega eye roll” territory. “Analyzing people and recognizing […]

Terrific Tuesday: Pirate by Clive Cussler, Releasing September 13, 2016

I am a huge fan of Clive Cussler! This Terrific Tuesday posting is for one of his books that is releasing in one of my favorite series, Fargo Adventures. This series follows Sam and Remi Fargo who are a husband and wife treasure-hunting team. They travel all over the world finding lost treasure and unraveling mysteries. They also seem to run into trouble at every turn. It is a great series […]

Mini-Reviews from July 2016 Wrap-Up

My summer was a very busy time and I am finally getting around to doing mini-reviews for some of the books I read in July. Do not expect mind-blowing reviews, ha ha ha, it was a very busy summer.   I gave this book 4 stars. This was a wonderful, awful, terrible heart wrenching beautiful disaster of a book and I am so in love and hate with it! It […]

The Scarlet Tanager by Emigh Cannaday

This book started off with deception, action, and a sinister villain. It then went for a ride into the realm of appalling. Honestly, poor Annika! Then with another twist to the story, past actions comes back to haunt Finn and confuse Annika. I guess some sleeping dogs just don’t lie. There has been some debate amongst fans as to what team they are on, Team Talvi or Team Finn. I […]

Terrific Tuesday Follow-Up: The Problem With Forever by Jennifer L. Armentrout

This book was one of the first Terrific Tuesday books that I wanted to read and I am finally getting to do just that. This novel was nothing like what I was expecting. This story deals with a tough subject, the effects of childhood neglect and abuse. I was not expecting such a thorough and heart touching story on this subject matter and was blown away by how spot-on her […]
