Keeping in the spirit of all things that go bump in this month, I decided to pick up another book featuring ghosts and psycho killers. I may have mentioned before that I am big fan of the slasher style YA mystery. I thought Famous Last Words was going to make the list of my favorites but unfortunately, I think this book is just going to end up on my list of so so YA horror. Why? Because the nicest thing I can say about Famous Last Words is I didn’t hate it. Famous Last Words is a book that I… Read more »

[Review] The Turning by Francine Prose

The Turn of the Screw is one of my favorite classics. It’s a gothic ghost story that leaves the reader questioning the reality of the events unfolding in the story. So when I saw that there was a young adult remake of this classic, I was ecstatic and immediately borrowed it from my local library. (Well, I had to wait two weeks for it to come in through interlibrary loan, but I immediately placed my request when I saw my library didn’t own it.) Disappointment accompanied me throughout much of the book. Most of the elements borrowed from The Turn… Read more »

[Review] Chained by Night by Larissa Ione

I really liked Chained by Night. Chained by Night is a hot, steamy, and action packed paranormal romance. It was everything I expected in a Larissa Ione novel. If you have not read Bound by Night the first book in the Moonbound Clan series then you probably want to stop here because there will be some spoilers. Chained by Night is the story of Hunter, the Moonbound chief, he is first introduced in Bound by Night. In Bound by Night to save his clan he makes a pact with a rival clan to marry the eldest daughter. Chained by Night… Read more »

If you don’t know me then you don’t know that the last three months of the year are my favorite time of the year. Scary times, good food and presents. I love that October kicks off my favorite time of the year because Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. To celebrate Halloween there will be a lot of books this month that have or feature things that go bump in the night. To kick things off I went back to one of my favorite YA horror series Fear Street. That is right folks, R.L. Stine decided to come back… Read more »

[ARC Review] Burn For Me by Ilona Andrews

I love Burn For Me so much that I started reading it when I got home from work and could not put it down until I had finished the whole story. It has all the things I love in a fantastic paranormal romance: scary bad guys, an even scarier alpha male, and a snarky female heroine. I loved Nevada Baylor. I loved that she is willing to do anything to protect the ones she loves. I love that when a sexy badass magic wielding billionaire tells her to get in his bed, she tells him to shove it. I love… Read more »

[ARC Review] The Fine Art of Pretending by Rachel Harris

I grew up on sappy romantic movies and novels. For me, these stories about hope, love, and happy endings are my bread and butter. You could say I am a fool for love. The Fine Art of Pretending does not disappoint for it is a story I loved and it made my sappy romantic heart swoon with joy. It was a story that sucked me in and didn’t let go. I thought I would just start by reading one chapter and before I knew it, in a matter of hours, I had the entire book read. The Fine Art of… Read more »

[Audiobook Review] Made For You by Melissa Marr

I have to be honest the first time I ever listened to a book by Melissa Marr I had just finished The Hunger Games so I think my option was a little biased. Needless to say, Wicked Lovely will not be making an appearance on any of my top books ever shelves. Since a few, ahem quite a few, years have passed since The Hunger Games and Wicked Lovely hit the shelves I thought I would give another Melissa Marr book a try. I have to say Made For You is not that bad. It is not a favorite book… Read more »

[ARC Review] Snow Like Ashes by Sara Raasch

Snow Like Ashes is the kind of book that sucks you in and doesn’t let go until the very last word. Or at least that was true for me. After I read the last word I knew this was a book I was going to want to share with all my friends and family. Why? Because it had it all: kissing, epic battles, and of course a heroine out for vengeance. I know this sounds similar to other books out there because it seems everyone is hopping on the epic fantasy bandwagon, but believe me this book does not disappoint… Read more »

[ARC Review] Rites of Passage by Joy N. Hensley

I ended up really liking this book. I am all about books that promote girl power.     I have these read these types of books before about the tough as nails girl going to military academy and having to prove she can keep up with the boys. Don’t get me wrong, I these types books are awesome because girls can do whatever they set their minds too. What set Rites of Passage apart was that isn’t what just a girl proving herself in the face of bullies; but a girl caught up in a mystery that could bring down… Read more »

[ARC Review] The Hook Up by Kristen Callihan

If I had to sum The Hook Up with just a few words it would be: Hot! Hot! Hot! This book was smoking hot. It is not the type of book you want to read on a plane, train, or well anywhere in public. It is the kind of book that is best read in private because take my word for it, it will make you blush. I liked The Hook Up, but then I think I like anything Kristen Callihan writes. I think she could write a picture book and I would still be like oh wow I really… Read more »
