And her aunt, […]

Review: Pocket Apocalypse by Seanan McGuire (@jessicadhaluska, @seananmcguire, @dawbooks)

Four books in and I’m still loving McGuire’s InCryptid series, though it must be said that I’m not going to terribly miss Alex’s POV. He’s just not as fun as Verity. *shrugs awkwardly* POCKET APOCALYPSE sends us to Australia to investigate an outbreak of lycanthropy. In most circumstances I’d rejoice at this development, but not […]

Review: Driving Rain by Sierra Dean (@sierradean)

Review: Driving Rain by Sierra Dean (@sierradean)

Book 1 in the RAIN CHASER series left me with a Dean Winchester taste in my mouth, and my suspicions were confirmed upon reading DRIVING RAIN’s dedication. Tallulah Corentine was intended to be the female equivalent of my favourite SUPERNATURAL brother! Combine that with some lightning and Sierra Dean’s flair with words, and I was […]

Review: A Tale of Two Dragons by G.A. Aiken (@mlsimmons)

I’ve really loved this series since i read the first book. I love the characters. The banter is wonderful. The romance isn’t the strongest I’ve read, but it is good. Mostly, I like the world and the humor in these stories. I had read all the novels and anxiously awaiting the next book. I missed […]

Bookfessional: My Literary Signpost

Literary Signposts, we’ve all seen them, right? I don’t know about you guys, but I love them. They’re so whimsical and bookishly indulgent . . . *sighs happily* I’d never given them much thought though—they’re all variations of: Hogwarts, Neverland, Narnia, the Shire, etc. And I was fine with that. B/c it was the idea […]
