Rain by India R Adams

I have read several books by India Adams. My first book was actually a novella called Blue Waters from the Tainted Waters series. That book was just amazingly written and it just tore my heart out in all the best ways! I loved it so much that I had added it to my favorites shelf at Goodreads. India and I were chatting on Twitter and she gifted me any book […]

March 2017 Books to Read Goals

I can’t believe March is already here but I am ready! There are several books coming out this month that I have pre-ordered and can’t wait to add to my collection. Two I am especially looking forward to and they are: Mere months ago, gunslinger Amani al’Hiza fled her dead-end hometown on the back of a mythical horse with the mysterious foreigner Jin, seeking only her own freedom. Now she’s […]

Nobody’s Hero by Bec McMaster

I received this book from Bec McMaster because I subscribe to her newsletter. What a phenomenal present for me because I am a huge fan of her work and I am grateful. I was introduced to her work with the book Kiss of Steel from the London Steampunk series. From the book forward I will absolutely read anything Bec McMaster. There are still several books that I haven’t read so […]

Flights of Fantasy Update February 2017

The Flights of Fantasy challenge is hosted by Alexa of Alexa Loves Books and Rachel of Hello, Chelly. So far this is still the only reading challenge that I have entered into for the 2017 year. It is a no pressure challenge as I set my own pace and choose my challenge amount, which is 30. Here are the fantasy books that I have read and reviewed on this blog: On the above list there […]


The Bone Witch by Rin Chupeco

The Bone Witch by Rin Chupeco

What was it that drew me to this story? A story revolving around necromancy is not something you run into that often and hello on that gorgeous cover! Upon reading it I find that there is a significant Asian (think geisha) influence throughout the writing and the story itself is about love, loss and revenge. This story is told from two points of view and it transitions from past to […]

February 2017 Wrap-Up and Mini-Reviews

Ok, so I dropped the ball and I did not have time to complete a February 2017 TBR post. So we will start with my TBR shelf at the start of February: Yeah it was a bit overflowing. So for the month of February I worked on making room on this shelf. Now I will be honest I removed Passenger and Wayfarer by Alexandra Bracken because I tried to read Passenger […]

Silence Fallen by Patricia Briggs

To say that I am a fan of the Mercy Thompson series is really an understatement. I have read every book and that actually makes me potentially a great critic. Where other series can start to get stale or predictable this series has remained strong! Silence Fallen steered away from the formula and gave us new features to look forward to in future installments. Fan-tast-ic! Mercy is back and this time […]

Someone Like You by Lauren Layne

I had seen this book somewhere when I was looking at upcoming books and thought that it sounded interesting. When I got time to actually read it, well it was “meh” for me. There are two main characters, Lincoln and Daisy. Lincoln’s backstory is creative. Not something I had read before and I liked that his personal life was actually a well hidden secret. Not because I think it should […]

Semi-Charmed by Isabel Jordan

The idea of a psychic and paranormal private investigator is what drew me to this story. It was the witty dialogue however that truly held my attention from the start. Snark and sarcasm will keep me entertained every time! I really enjoyed the banter between the main characters. Harper’s character was sassy, witty, and determined while Riddick’s character was brooding, tortured, and self-deprecating. The juxtaposition between these characters was just […]

One Taste of Love by Amanda Siegrist

One Taste of Love is the second book in the A One Taste Novel series. The characters of Ben and Rina were introduced in the first novel of this series. With that said you could read this as a stand-alone book but I feel that you would get more from the story if you read the books in order. Ben is a sweet character and has been in love with […]

Nighthawk by Kathryn Le Veque, Spotlight with Excerpt

Excerpt from Nighthawk: Brighton was miserable. She hung her head, looking at her feet. How can I tell him what I am thinking? How can I confide in him? I will only sound foolish! “P-please,” she whispered. “There… there is nothing wrong. I….” He shook her, gently. “No lies,” he snapped softly. “Tell me now or we shall spend the rest of our lives here because I will not let […]

The Dark Companions by M.A. Kassel

Let’s start by saying that this story involves children but I do not think it is meant for young readers. Heck, maybe not even some teens. It is a dark fantasy and the characters are not interested in good versus evil. There is very little good. Even the main character of Sid is not wholly good. I did however truly appreciate his love for his sister. The entire plot about […]

War is on the horizon and it is up to the people of Denall to band together to stop Mordyar and his supporters. Since book one, this story has been about Mordyar’s quest to bring about the prophecy that is connected to the six stones of power. He has developed alliances, put plans into motion and had his followers do all his dirty work in order to pave the path […]

Firestorm by Donna Grant

Firestorm is the tenth book in the Dark Kings series. The story takes place in various areas of Scotland. It also means that most of the Kings including Dimitri speaks with a Scottish accent. It is verra, verra good and makes his character a bit more swoon-worthy. The Kings are dragons that existed on Earth before mankind and through poor judgement on their part swore to provide protection for humankind. I […]

Flight of the Krilo by Sam Ferguson

I am a fan of Sam Ferguson’s writing style. Every character is unique and the world building is always so original. The words just flow and create a vivid story that interests you throughout the tale. This story takes place in a world that has several races all striving to conquer, kill, or survive. There is a Native American feel for the Varvarr race. They are very connected to the […]

The Minx’s V-Day Recommendations

    I do not read a ton of romance books but since today is Valentine’s Day here in the United States I thought I would do a post with some books that I found to be quite romantic in their own way. Just in case you are looking for a bit of romance in your day. I have included a synopsis with each book and if you click on […]

Think Before You Speak by D.A. Bale

This is the second installment in The Bartender Babe Chronicles and I found it to be witty, humorous, and a real page turner. I do not know what it is about the character of Vicki Bohanan but she just keeps me entertained page after page. It might be that she is not perfect and that although she makes plenty of mistakes she always wants the best for those she cares […]
