[Review] Going Dark by Monica McCarty

What can I say about Going Dark after finally getting through it? Well, Going Dark is not a bad story but it definitely wasn’t a fantastic story.  Going Dark was just an okay story. It is one of those military A-Team type stories I have read quite a few times. A platoon goes missing or is blamed when something goes on a mission. In the case of Going Dark it is they go “missing” and it is assumed they were all killed in action. All is not right on the mission and the survivors must go into hiding. So, Dean… Read more »

I am sure it comes as no surprise that I love all things romance. I will read anything as long as it has even a hint of romance. Over the past couple of years I have become a big fan of Maya Rodale. Her books are sweet, very sexy, and guaranteed to have that happily ever after I am looking for. When I saw Maya Rodale had new romance out, I was like sign me up because I am all over that.   Chasing Lady Amelia was everything I hoped it would be. I truly fell into some serious like… 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 »

[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 »

[Review] Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas

I didn’t gobble this book up in one sitting like I thought I would but slowly savored it over a few days. Why? Because I never wanted to let go of the story. I think this book is my favorite of the series. I liked the first three books but they were about spoiled, naïve, and broody kids that had still had a lot of growing up to do. This book is about change. Not just change in the direction of the of the overall story but change with the characters themselves. I loved that this book above all the… 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 »

Welcome to our first edition of COLLECTIVE PERSPECTIVE A new segment where at least two of our bloggers collaborate to share their thoughts in a joint review discussion. Today, Bry and Fry discuss their latest obsession, ‘The Girl With All The Gifts’ by M. R. Carey.   Fry: I finished this book last night and I’m still reeling from it. The ending was both disheartening and elating. A true testament to Ian Malcom’s proclamation of, “Life finds a way.” It held some elements of books in the same genre, but it offered less horror than Justin Cronin’s The Passage and less conspiracy than… 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 »

[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 »
