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 »

I liked Illusions of Fate, it was a sweet funny romance. I also liked that it wasn’t just a romance. Besides just romance, it was a book about prejudice and acceptance. Jessamin is a girl from the island of Melei. She is living and going to school in Albion. One fateful day she finds herself in an alley and about to be accosted by a ruffian. A guy named Finn comes to her rescue. From then on, she is thrust into a world of magic and murder. I liked this idea of a fantasy world that is just like turn… Read more »

[Manga Monday] Sasameki Koto

Welcome! Today’s Manga Monday takes a look at Sasameki Koto, or Whispered Words by Takeshi Ikeda. Sasameki Koto was first serialized in Monthly Comic Alive between May of 2007 and September of 2011. It gained a 13 episode anime series in 2009, and gained some notability on its handling of subjects such as same-sex couples, cross dressing, and how one handles their sexuality in this age where being open about who you are and who you like is difficult because of the conflicting decrees of the ages gone by and the new era opening up before us. But before we wax philosophic,… Read more »

Crown of Midnight is so much better than the first book Throne of Glass.  I have become a convert!  I am now a Throne of Glass fangirl because I am in so much like with this series after reading Crown of Midnight!  There is action, romance, and gut wrenching heartbreak. I stayed up into the wee hours of the night because I couldn’t put this book down. My book hangover at work the next day was completely worth it. Crown of Midnight is so good that it even has Darth Vader dancing with glee. Crown of Midnight picks up a couple… Read more »

It is no secret that I like books full of romance and happily ever after. When I saw a book about a heroine pursuing her own happily ever after, I knew I had to read The Break-Up Psychic. I sat down to just read a few pages, and before I knew it, I had read the entire book in one afternoon. I am glad too because I liked this book so much I would have been disappointed if I would have had to put it down for such mundane tasks like going to work. It is after reading The Break-Up… Read more »

My first reaction after finishing this book is that I love it, no I adore it. This book is so amazing it makes me want to do a happy dance. I don’t think I ever told anyone but the very first Kindle book I ever purchased and read was Anna and the French Kiss. I really liked that book and then I read Lola and the Boy Next Door. I fell in love with Stephanie Perkins’ writing and this world even more. Now I have finished this series and I didn’t think it was possible to fall even more in… Read more »

I am going to admit something, I like happy endings and the feeling I get when I have been swept up in the throes of a good romance. I am not ashamed to admit this. I really liked A Good Debutante’s Guide to Ruin because it was sweet, sexy, and swept me away. The book starts off with Rosalie Hughes when she is quite literally left on the doorstep of her estranged step brother’s house, the Duke of Branbury. Rosalie has nowhere else to go because her mother left her at finishing school way past the appropriate age. Declan, out… Read more »

[Manga Mondays] Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon

Hello Readers! Because of the release of the reboot series: ‘Sailor Moon Crystal’, I’m taking a look at the manga that has inspired (now) 2 anime series, and became a classic among manga and anime in the US. Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon! This series goes by a couple of names in English and Japanese. It’s known as Sailor Moon, Pretty Soldier Sailor Moon, and Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon. Though after this I’ll just use the short version. Sailor Moon is the creation of Nakao Takeuchi, and was first published in the magazine Nakayoshi before the company Kodansha released it in its volumed forms. In America, the… Read more »

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 »

Juneau is a girl who lives in the Alaskan wilderness. She’s pretty bad ass at most things involving survival without standard amenities. She’s also one with the universe and I expected her to break into a rendition of Colors of the Wind at any moment. Despite the blue corn moon, she returns from a hunting trip to find her entire family gone and all the dogs massacred. This prompts her to go on a quest to find her parents, though, she certainly finds more than she bargained for, caught between two different sects and unable to figure out who to… Read more »
