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 »

[ARC Review]Lady Bridget’s Diary by Maya Rodale

I am big fan of Maya Rodale’s historical romance novels. When I saw this book up for review, I just knew I had to read it. I was definitely not disappointed. It was just like in a good historical romance: cute cheesiness, kisses galore, and swoony lords. Plus this story is a Pride and Prejudice retelling with a handsome Darcy in a wet shirt.     Lady Bridget’s Diary was just the kind of read I searching for, meaning it is a light fluffy romance. The story is a Pride and Prejudice retelling so I don’t think I need to… Read more »

[Review]The Girl From Everywhere by Heidi Heilig

I think the theme of this book should be:   I kept thinking that over and again as Nix broods over and over again about her father.   Nix’s dad is a time traveler. He can take any map from any time and place and sail there. It is about all about belief and abilities. Nix was born in Honolulu in 1868. Her mother died giving birth to her while Nix’s dad was out traveling. Now, for as long as Nix can remember he is obsessed with getting back to the time before Nix’s mom met her dad because he sure… Read more »
