Audiobook Review: White Trash Zombie Apocalypse by Diana Rowland

Audiobook Review: White Trash Zombie Apocalypse by Diana Rowland

I’ll be honest, I was concerned whether I’d like this installment after having found the previous one a tad too over-the-top in the zombie conspiracies department, and also lacking in classic Angel moments because—let’s face it—I read this series mainly for her crass humour. WHITE TRASH ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE has a nice mix of both, so […]

Review: Gameboard of the Gods by Richelle Mead

Review: Gameboard of the Gods by Richelle Mead

I love Richelle Mead. Everything that I’ve read of hers–Georgina Kincaid, Dark Swan, even Vampire Academy (though I still haven’t read the last book of that series)—I’ve, at a minimum, REALLY liked. But for some reason, I held out on reading this new series until now. The initial reviews were kind of MEH, and I’ve gotten leery […]

Review: Dreams of Gods & Monsters by Laini Taylor

Review: Dreams of Gods & Monsters by Laini Taylor

NO SPOILERS!! I love pie. This is not a secret. I particularly love blueberry pie (which is weird b/c I HATE blueberries). My husband does too. So much that on his birthday, he’d rather have pie than cake. I’m happy to oblige, but b/c I’m a miser and a glutton (when it comes to pie), […]

Review: Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor

Review: Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor

When I was in college, I had this incredibly obnoxious French professor. The woman made us—grown men and women—sit in a circle and read (in French) basic sentences that would add up to nonsensical stories. Like we were in grade school. The first person would get a slip of paper with the equivalent of, “Jacques went […]

Audiobook Review: Trapped by Kevin Hearne

Audiobook Review: Trapped by Kevin Hearne

This was probably my least favourite installment to date; that being said, I’m still giving it four stars because Kevin Hearne’s humor and sharp writing continue to dazzle me even though in this particular instance the story did not. TRAPPED felt like a segue book; it’s twelve years later and the time has come for […]

Review: Ghost Seer by Robin D Owens

Review: Ghost Seer by Robin D Owens

I was first drawn to this title because of its eye-catching cover and interesting premise; the fact that it’s book 1 in a brand new series, and features a ghost dog spirit guide were definite pluses as well. The pacing and romance were a little slow moving at times, but overall I enjoyed learning about […]

Review: Deadly Descendant by Jenna Black

Review: Deadly Descendant by Jenna Black

Deadly Descendant proves without the shadow of a doubt that its author is brilliant.    And I am talking shining star tier.    It seems as I always say I will have to forget the last fifty or so pages that manage to miss the boat that the last three hundred were sailing me out […]
