Musing Mondays (1)

Hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.This week’s musing asks: Do you prefer hardcovers, trade paperbacks (the bigger ones), or mass market paperbacks (the smaller ones)? Why? I will have to go with mass market paperbacks. They are more affordable and I can carry one easily in my purse for when I’m on the go. […]

Review: Alpha by Rachel Vincent

WOW! The finale to this series was all I hoped it would be and more! This book was pretty intense! I laughed, I cried, I got angry… it was quite the emotional roller coaster. Rachel Vincent nailed it! Her writing pattern seems to be a kick ass book followed by an okay one and so […]

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 […]
