[Review] Queen of Swords by Katee Robert

I am huge of science fiction and romance, so when I find a book that can combine the two, I am of course in seventh heaven. Queen of Swords is a fun story full of intergalactic adventures and happy endings. I really really really liked Queen of Swords. This book was good, it makes me want to dance with glee.       Queen of Sword is a swash buckler sci fi romance for sci fans, who like things like Farscape and Star Wars. This book is about a daughter of a gunrunner down on her luck and the cocky prince… Read more »

[Review] A Darkness Strange and Lovely by Susan Dennard

First off let me say that I enjoyed this book so much better than the first book, Something Strange and Deadly. A Darkness Strange and Lovely takes place three months after the events in Something Strange and Deadly. I think it I liked A Darkness Strange and Lovely because it was full of: hot kisses, zombies and old fashioned Paris balls. Of course, a heroine that scoffs at traditions and hunts zombies in pants, no corset, and kicks butt with magic.     A Darkness Strange and Lovely takes place in late 1800s Paris this time. Eleanor goes there to… Read more »

[ARC Review] Kiss of Deception by Mary E. Pearson

To quote Sir Walter Scott, “Oh what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive.” I think that pretty much sums up Kiss of Deception. There are lies and mysteries that even, I, as the reader couldn’t figure out until they were unveiled. I liked Kiss of Deception a lot because it is a book about deception but also a book about courage. I loved the idea of a princess willing to risk everything for a chance at happiness and then willing to risk it again to fight for what she thinks is right.   Kiss of… Read more »

[ARC Review] Magnolia by Kristi Cook

Let me say first off there is just something about a boy from the south.  I don’t mean rednecks, I have nothing against rednecks.  I mean a well-mannered boy from the south that calls his mama, says yes ma’am, and most of all has one of those lilting southern accents.  Ladies, let me tell you that Ryder from Magnolia has all those qualities and more.  When I read Magnolia I spent the whole time wishing I had met a boy like that when I was seventeen. Magnolia is a story of two teens whose parents want them to be together. … Read more »

[Audiobook Review] The Murder Complex by Lindsay Cummings

I actually got this book as an e-Arc, but I didn’t have time to read it so I bought the audio book right when it came it out. My first thought after finishing the audio book of The Murder Complex was I didn’t hate it, but I didn’t love it either. It was one of those books that was either very interesting or very slow. I don’t know if it was just me, but sometimes I found myself right on the edge of my seat and other times I found myself tuning out the book and running my grocery list… Read more »

Today I continue my foray into contemporary romance with Wish You Were Italian by Kristin Rae.  This book is YA contemporary that is cute, sweet, heart-breaking at times, and oh so romantic.  This review will be short and sweet for a book that is the same.  Wish You Were Italian is about a young woman who is kind of forced to go to Italy, the summer before her senior year, to attend a program in art history.  The only problem, Pippa is not that into art history. She is ready for this summer to be the worst summer of her… Read more »

[Review] Sea of Shadows by Kelley Armstrong

Let me start this review off by saying that I am a huge Kelley Armstrong fangirl.  I have been a fan since I first read Bitten many moons ago.  That being said, I don’t think Sea of Shadows will go up there as my favorite Kelley Armstrong book of all time.  I liked Sea Shadows well enough, but I didn’t love it.  This book had action, good world building, and of course a little kissing.  All the things that should make me love it, but it in the end it was just a decent read. Sea of Shadows is Kelley… Read more »

What do you get when you mix Gargoyles and 1899 France?  A pretty decent gothic horror novel called The Beautiful and the Cursed.  Sorry, but this review will be short and sweet.  The Beautiful and the Cursed is about two sisters who live in 1899 and their mother has always dreamed of running a gallery in France.  With the permission of her husband, of course, their mother moves herself and her daughters to France for the summer.  Their brother has already gone to France ahead of them to scout out locations, secure the place, and hire servants.  He finds them… Read more »
