[Review] The Problem With Forever by Jennifer L. Armentrout

First off I have to say, oh man, this book was good.  A coworker of mine asked me what this book was about the other day.  I said it was a coming of age with some romance thrown in.  She said it sounded predictable.  You know what that is not bad thing.  I like that this book was predictable and I knew that no matter what happened in between the heroine was going to make it through. The Problem With Forever is about a girl named Mallory and Mallory has had really tragic past.  She was a foster kid who… Read more »

[Audiobook Review] The Marked Girl by Lindsey Klingele

The first thing I said when I finished this audiobook was, “thank goodness I made it to the end”. So, I first tried to pick up The Marked Girl when I received a copy from the publisher about a month ago.  Sadly, I just couldn’t get into this book so I put it to the side.  Then when I saw the audiobook was on Audible, I was like perfect now I can have someone read it to me. I was hoping maybe that would make my reading experience go faster. Again sadly that wasn’t the case. Amanda Dolan the narrator… Read more »

I don’t know why this book took me so long to read.  I think it was because I was going through a bit of slump last month.   When I saw My Lady Jane was out on audiobook I decided to use my audible credit and give it a go.  I can honestly the audiobook did not disappoint.  I ended absolutely loving this book.  I listened to My Lady Jane in the car and in my office at work.  I know there were times people were staring at me because I could not stop laughing.  This book was so funny there… Read more »

[Audiobook Review] Ruined by Amy Tintera

I think this book is more of a 3.5 star kind of read but I have rounded up because I did like the ending so much. I listened to this audiobook and maybe things got lost in translation but it was hard for me get into it at first. I really had to power through. Let me say not because of the narrator, Emily Rankin does decent job making the story come alive. Once, I got to the middle of the book the rest of the story was addicting. I flew right through it. Ruined isn’t anything new in YA… Read more »

I have been in this mini reading slump. I knew I needed to read something that was full of romance. Something that would get my reading juices flowing again. I didn’t even know what this book was book was about but in the word of Shia Labeouf, I knew I just needed to “just do it” aka in my world just read it. Ride Hard was everything I was looking for to help get me back in the reading swing of things. I am a fan of Laura Kaye’s Hard Ink series. When I saw this book up for request… Read more »

[ARC Review] Nightstruck by Jenna Black

Nightstruck starts out really really creepy and that insidious feeling never lets go the whole way through. Imagine a place where inanimate objects can come alive and murder people on the streets. Imagine a dark magic that can infect people to the point they are killing each other on the streets. I really liked this book because parts of it made the hair on my arm stand up.   This review will be very short and sweet because I don’t want to give too much away. I think the best part of experience reading Nightstruck was that didn’t know too… Read more »

[ARC Review] All Chained Up by Sophie Jordan

This story wasn’t about a guy in prison that got framed. Nor, is it a story about a man trying to solve some problem with gangs when he gets out of prison. It is a story about a guy who made and has been paying for it ever since. Was this my favorite Sophie Jordan book? No. I can’t gush and love every book she writes. There wasn’t some big mystery or nonstop action. I didn’t end up hating this book it was just a sweet romance about two people learning to open up and find love. All Chain Up… Read more »

[Audiobook Review] Freaky Days by Amanda M. Lee

I admit I picked this book up on a whim. It was on sale on Audible and I have been trying to give more indie publications a shot, so I thought what the heck. The cover was definitely a bit freaky and I wasn’t sure what to expect so back, to my what the heck attitude. I began listening to Freaky Days. Imagine my surprise when I actually really liked this book.   I even quote parts of it to my friends and coworkers now. Freaky Days is a murder mystery set in a traveling circus. But, Mystic Caravan isn’t just… Read more »

[Review] Marked In Flesh by Anne Bishop

The more books I read in The Others series the more I fall into even more like with this series. Marked in Flesh, the latest installment, had it all: touching moments, on the edge of seat thrills, moments of laughter, and even the seeds to a future romance.     Marked in Flesh was all about “how much human should they keep.” Not just human survivors but human customs and human goods as well. I think the real question in this story is, who are the real monsters? It is easy for humans to be scared of things that go… Read more »

[Audiobook Review] Into the Dim by Janet B. Taylor

I got an E-ARC of Into the Dim but there are just not enough hours in the day; so I decided to buy the audiobook and listen to this book while I was at work. I am glad I did because I really really enjoyed Into the Dim. It was full action, romance, and of course, time travel. I can say I liked this book even more because it was narrated by one of my favorite audiobook narrators: Amanda Ronconi. For those who don’t know who Amanda Ronconi is she narrates adult romance author Molly Harper’s novels. I just love… Read more »
