Review: Garden of Dreams and Desires by Kristen Painter

Review: Garden of Dreams and Desires by Kristen Painter

I don’t know if it was the writing, Kristen Painter’s personal style, the characters, or what, but I’ve come to the conclusion that this trilogy just wasn’t my thing. CITY OF ETERNAL NIGHT showed the most promise out of all of the books (except for the ending); however this finale felt more like the author […]

Review: Accidental Abduction by Eve Langlais

Review: Accidental Abduction by Eve Langlais

I had no idea what to expect when I started this book. It’s my first read by this author and I have to say, it certainly was different. “Maybe drowning won’t be so bad” When a book starts out like that, it did peak my interest right away. Megan is treading water in the middle […]

Review: Forsaken by the Others by Jess Haines

Review: Forsaken by the Others by Jess Haines

It’s an unspoken rule that every series has to have one blah installment, and unfortunately for H&W INVESTIGATIONS, this was it. Jess Haines’ engrossing writing style was still present, but FORSAKEN BY THE OTHERS was minus the tall glass of action that I’ve become accustomed to, the love interest was mostly a no show, and […]

Karen Marie Moning tried to right the wrongs of book 6 by reshaping several of the characters into more ‘acceptable’ […]

Audiobook Review: Dead of Winter by Kresley Cole

Audiobook Review: Dead of Winter by Kresley Cole

This audiobook was #4 on my most anticipated reads of 2015 list, so it’s with a heavy heart that I give it 3-stars. The dystopian universe created by Kresley Cole in THE ARCANA CHRONICLES that I’ve come to adore was dwarfed by this series’ love triangle, and the plot whittled down to Evie’s boy toy […]

Audiobook Review: The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater

Audiobook Review: The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater

I’m a huge fan of Maggie Stiefvater’s THE WOLVES OF MERCY FALLS trilogy, and I recently listened to SINNER in audio which is what prompted me to give this series a whirl. Well, that and the fact that I won a copy from Loupe at Hot Listens (thank you!!!). The author’s lyrical writing style that […]
