Shift by Rachel Vincent

I had originally started to read Shift before Prey as the later wasn’t available at the bookstore. I quickly found myself lost and put the book aside until I was able to acquire the 4th novel. The story picks-up right where it left off from the last book. Only a few days have elapsed. I would recommend […]

Happy Thanksgiving to my fellow Canadians!

We had a pretty quiet Thanksgiving again this year. It’s the second one since my ♥mom♥ passed. Paul and I spent Saturday and Sunday in Kingston, Ontario with his sister and mom. I don’t think I’ve ever been to Kingston in the fall; it’s beautiful! Seeing all of the multicolored leaves surrounded by historical buildings […]

Prey by Rachel Vincent

This book was amazing! I can’t believe that it’s taken me this long to get around to reading it. It probably took me until now because Pride wasn’t very memorable and left me on the fence; undecided on whether or not I was going to continue with the Shifters series. Boy am I ever glad […]

Frostbitten by Kelley Armstrong

In this novel, Kelley Armstrong goes back to the characters that started it all in her Women of the Otherworld series: Elena Michaels and Clayton Danvers. Bitten and Stolen were the first two books I read by her and are what got me hooked. This series has been a great read overall but the novels […]

An excuse to buy books

In light of my new blog I bought new books! No sense starting a book review blog with nothing to read. I didn’t buy just any books, but books from a few of my favorite series. As a result, I should devour these and have plenty of material to blog about. It’s a shame that […]

The eReader bandwagon

I’ve been toying with buying an eBook reader for sometime now. With Christmas around the corner, the debate has resurfaced. My dilemma is this: I already spend many hours in front of a computer screen at work, at home and while studying part-time online. Do I really want to stare at another screen while engaged […]

Moon Sworn by Keri Arthur

Excellent ending to this series! Unfortunate that it had to end but what an ending! Riley is knee deep in the usual sh!#: investigating murders, feuding with her pack and killing vampires. After having her life nearly taken away from her at least 5 more times throughout this book she realizes that being a guardian […]

Bound to Shadows by Keri Arthur

A good addition to the Guardian series by Keri Arthur. Lots of action, danger, love and supernatural without overdoing it like Laurell K. Hamilton in her later books. Arthur has stuck to the same format / storyline that has made this series so successful without taking it too far over the top. The story was […]

Living with the Dead by Kelley Armstrong

Another great book by this Canadian author. The story wasn’t as riveting as some of her earlier novels but still a great read. It didn’t have as much supernatural content as I’ve come to expect from this series. Out of all the characters, the half-demon Hope is one of my least favorites. Her powers can […]
