Review: Alpha by Rachel Vincent

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 […]

Shift by Rachel Vincent

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!

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

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

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

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

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 […]
