Or I will not have you at all.” You go girl! Inej, best wraith ever! February 2016 review: When you are reading this story you find that in the first chapter it’s just a book but by the second chapter […]

Thicker Than Water by Brigid Kemmerer

When I tagged the book to read I thought it was going to be a new adult book about solving a crime. What is it really about? Thomas and Charlotte in a Romeo and Juliet style love affair that revolves around a crime. The book is solidly written. The dialogue is in 2 different point of views, so it has some witty things happening there. All the characters involved are […]

Truthwitch by Susan Dennard

Review: Love the camaraderie between the main characters Safi and Iseult. They are both badass and loyal – two qualities that I enjoy in strong female leads. The story starts off running and the action does not stop. The characters are all well developed and believable. The story is woven very well and the “witcheries” are explained and demonstrated so you will not find yourself being lost or confused. When […]

The Siren by Kiera Cass

Review: I did enjoy this story. Kahlen as a main character was a bit annoying for me in the beginning. I had to keep in mind that she was 19 years old when she became a siren and that she was stuck in that naïveté, but at the same time she was more mature in other areas. The relationships that the author created between the siren sisters was special and […]

Rise of the Wolf by Jennifer A. Nielsen

When I read “Mark of the Thief” I was not necessarily in love with the book. This book….definitely an improvement. Review: I did enjoy this book from the start. The plot twists keep coming and I found that it was indeed a page turner. I thought that this time Nic was becoming more sure of himself and was starting to see himself as more than just a slave. You start […]

Mark of Blood and Alchemy by Evangeline Denmark

This novella did give me an understanding of how the “Defenders” came to be, it explained the extended life of the Defenders and it gave you an understanding of where the idea of the dolls came from. I found that the writing again left holes for me, that was the same issue I had with my review of “Curio.” I found my self annoyed with Olan because he is so […]

The Hunters by Chris Kuzneski

I have been wanting to read this book for sometime now and with a movie deal in the works…I wanted to read it before the movie came out. So I got my hands on a copy and here are my thoughts on it. I do like the action-adventure genre. I thought this book was good but not great. The writing was well done. He did a great job of researching […]

A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas

When I first read this book it reminded me so much of the Beauty and the Beast fairytale that I had a hard time separating the two. Sometimes when I am reading a book that reminds me so much of another book I get annoyed and initially that is how I felt with this book. After I read it though I kept thinking about it and read it again. Then […]

Silverlight by S.L. Jesberger

From the cover of this book you are thinking warrior? Epic battles? This book is about a betrayal of the worst kind, healing love, and retribution. I love this: “You might as well get it in your mind that you are staying with me until you breathe your last. My compassion is given without condition.” Kymber, once a warrior, is found shattered and broken. Magnus, once her lover and friend, […]

Curio by Evangeline Denmark

I did enjoy this book but the writing left lots of holes for me. There were details introduced but the writer failed to properly explain the whys of it all. Of course I can use my imagination but my conclusions might never be what the writer intended. If there is indeed a next book I will read it as I did connect with the main characters, I just hope there […]

Wicked by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Wow! This book was great from the beginning. Although it is an older book, I wanted to read it before the next book in the series comes out. The main characters are addictive. Ivy is badass and Ren is just steamy. The Fae in this book are just straight up bad but I am loving Tink, Ivy’s Brownie roommate. This book had it all…friendship, love, lust, Fae and betrayal. Also, […]
