Review: Hunter by Mercedes Lackey (@jessicadhaluska)

Review: Hunter by Mercedes Lackey (@jessicadhaluska)

Contrary to my assumption, HUNTER by Mercedes Lackey was not a YA fantasy. If I’d bothered to read the blurb, I would’ve known that, but what can I say? Old habits die hard. What it is is a paranormal/mythological/post-apocalyptic/dystopian mashup. Sounds cool, right? And a lot of readers, particularly those still in their teens, will […]

Review: Silver in the Blood by Jessica Day George

Review: Silver in the Blood by Jessica Day George

SILVER IN THE BLOOD could have been a lot of things. It could have been yet another spin on wolves in service (enslaved) to vampires. It could have been nothing more than two silly girls running amok in Eastern Europe. It could have been a bland Victorian tale about society misses having their sensibilities shocked […]

Review: Bitten by Noelle Marie

Review: Bitten by Noelle Marie

What if you are a teenage girl who on a sort of dare visits the local haunted house and gets bit by a werewolf? One that tries but fails to carry you off? That’s the premise of this young adult read. It’s also one that I read almost non-stop. Katherine is sixteen and lives in […]

Review: Current Impressions by Kelly Risser

Almost a year ago I read and reviewed the first in this series titled, Never Forgotten. I really liked it and looked forward to reading the sequel. Didn’t think about it again, but happened upon the sequel recently, and snapped it up.Third and last book is already published as well, for those of you that […]

Review: Wanderlust by Karen McQuestion

Review: Wanderlust by Karen McQuestion

The second in this trilogy, Wanderlust is the continuing story of four teenagers that share a secret after witnessing an otherworldly? event. Of course it is young adult, but even at my older age, I found it to be an engrossing read. The last book, Edgewood, featured Russ as the main character, with Mallory, Nadia, […]

Review: Forbidden by Selene Charles

Review: Forbidden by Selene Charles

Carnival Diabolique? Oh yeah, count me in. It might be an older young adult read, but I ended up completely enjoying it as much as any good adult book. And it was good! One thing though, when reading this, you immediately think of Twilight. Lots of similarities. As in, I almost put it down after […]

Review: Edgewood by Karen McQuestion

Review: Edgewood by Karen McQuestion

Buy a book and immediately read it? Not unheard of from me, but still pretty rare. I found this one, and was intrigued enough to read, AND not be able to put down this book almost immediately. It’s young adult, but that didn’t take anything away from my enjoyment of this read. Russ is a […]

Audiobook Review: Talon by Julie Kagawa

Audiobook Review: Talon by Julie Kagawa

Going in, I knew that this audiobook was probably going to be a letdown given how the reviews were stacking up, but I got it as a daily deal, so no big. The blurb is misleading with its “groundbreaking modern fantasy series” because Sophie Jordan wrote a very similar story back in 2010 with FIRELIGHT. […]

Review: Empire of Night by Kelley Armstrong

Review: Empire of Night by Kelley Armstrong

This is an interesting series by Kelley Armstrong, who is one of my favorite authors. I was very intrigued by the first book in this series. This series is about two twin sisters who live in a different world. They are the Keeper and the Seeker, which is a coveted position in their world. They […]
