Review: Haven by Celia Breslin

Review: Haven by Celia Breslin

“Let’s don’t and say we did” When the main character is snarky enough to say something like that to the vampire that is trying to kill her, then you know why I loved this book. I love snark in any book and this one has it in spades. Just one of many reasons to enjoy […]

Audiobook Review: Charming by Elliott James

Audiobook Review: Charming by Elliott James

I loved Elliott James’ PAX ARCANA universe, his first person POV writing style, and John, the male protagonist, but I had some major issues with the love triangle, info dumps, and the fact that the female lead was a Valkyrie. However, the former appears to have been resolved, and even though I have reached my […]

Review: Storm Siren by Mary Weber

Review: Storm Siren by Mary Weber

Hmmm . . . first of all, when I requested this book, I didn’t realize that it was published by Thomas Nelson, which is a Christian imprint of HarperCollins. If I had known, I probably wouldn’t have requested the book, b/c I don’t like being preached at when I’m reading recreationally, BUT . . . […]

Review: Dust to Dust by Karina Halle

Review: Visions by Kelley Armstrong

Review: Visions by Kelley Armstrong

As a long time Kelley Armstrong fan, I hate to say this but I didn’t like OMENS. I just couldn’t connect with the characters, it was more psychological thriller than urban fantasy, and readers were left with an exorbitant amount of unanswered questions. I honestly expected the worst when I started reading VISIONS, instead… I […]

Review: Storm Front by Jim Butcher

Review: Storm Front by Jim Butcher

Lover of Urban Fantasy that I am, it may come as a surprise that before now . . . I have never actually . . . read Jim Butcher . . . I KNOW. I’m such a poser. In my defense, I haven’t had much luck with male authors in the genre, and come on […]

Review: Tempted by a Rogue Prince by Felicity Heaton

Review: Tempted by a Rogue Prince by Felicity Heaton

Even though I’m saving myself for Bleu, I do love a good anti-hero, and you don’t get more tortured than Felicity Heaton’s mad elf prince, Vail. TEMPTED BY A ROGUE PRINCE was the darkest installment yet in the ETERNAL MATES series, and the perfect read for all of us bad boy fan girls! I highly […]
