I like this series and the latest installment Vision in Silver was no exception. Vision in Silver is the third book in The Others series by Anne Bishop. I tried to keep thoughts general but there might be spoilers for the first two books in the series. Vison in Silver picks up after the events in Murder of Crows. Terra Indigene are on edge because a group called Humans First came after the group at the compound. They also think this group is tied to the humans that have been breeding and holding blood prophets hostage, Meg’s people. Simon, a… Read more »

[Audiobook Review] Under Different Stars by Amy A. Bartol

I started listening to this audiobook one day at work. I became so engrossed in the story that I literally could not put this book down. I came home and kept right on listening to this book instead of turning on the TV. For me, this book was so entrancing that I could not stop until I had listened to the very last sentence. Under Different Stars opens with Kricket working and living under the radar because she ran away from foster care. Then one day her life changes forever when men from another world start coming after her. They… Read more »

Not gonna lie, when I found this in my mailbox I cocked my head and squealed about the pretties. Then I questioned why it was in my mailbox. Did I sleepily enter a giveaway? Don’t they usually email you first? It didn’t even show up on the UPS tracking because it was one that got shuttled over to USPS before delivery. So, honestly it was a wonderful surprise. I did question the cover, because is that a sword? Is it supposed to be her dagger? It’s too short for a sword and much too long for a dagger. I know… Read more »

[ARC Review] Diary of an Accidental Wallflower by Jennifer McQuiston

I am going to make this review short and sweet. Why? Diary of an Accidental Wallflower is a cute read and I am not sure there is much more I could say without adding endless nonsense. This story starts off cute because Claire is quite taken with Mr. Alban, a future duke. One day when she is in the park she sees him out and about but god forbid Mr. Alban sees Claire in an old day dress. She lunges into some bushes to hide and hurts her ankle. That is how Dr. Daniel Merial begins taking care of Claire’s… Read more »

After the long, very much-anticipated wait, I finally got my hands on Invaded and finished it forty-eight hours.  It was worth the wait because oh wow I really liked this book and maybe a little bit more than the first book.  This book picks up right where the first book, Alienated, left off with Cara staying behind on L’eihr and Aelyx leaving to go back to Earth.  This book deals with the trials each on faces as they struggle to be apart and continue the mission to save Earth. I really that the first book was about acceptance, love and… Read more »

[ARC Review] Cursed by Fire by Jacquelyn Frank

I think when I first saw the cover and blurb for this book I was expecting more of the same contemporary paranormal romance I have read. Centuries old cursed warrior set free in modern times. This book is different from that, in the fact when the centuries old warrior is set free, this book reads more like a romantic high fantasy novel. I liked that the setting was something different and the world building. I think that is the only aspect of this book that I really liked. The story itself was a bit a yawn with steamy happy fun… Read more »

This book is actually a novella and so my review is going to short just like this cute short story. I really liked this story it was adorable, sweet and sexy. I am giving it four stars because it left me in a nice happy place.     I have been a reading rut for a week now. I think this story was just I needed to pull me out of it. It was a short story so I was able to finish it in one night. It was also, an entertaining romance. I am sucker for books about athletes… Read more »

[ARC Review] Gone Too Far by Natalie D. Richards

  I liked this book because it was an okay read. It was an easy read even though I didn’t really care who the mysterious vigilante was. It was just one those books that quick and I liked but I didn’t think it was the best thing since sliced bread. It was a bit predictable at times and I think I was expecting more of a thriller when I went into this book. The book is about Piper who finds a notebook full of scandals about her fellow students. Then one day she over hears some popular jock guys hassling… Read more »

[Arc Review] The Quick and the Undead by Kimberly Raye

I grabbed this one from Netgalley because I wanted something different, and fluffy. Something akin to potato chips or popcorn. I didn’t want to have to commit to anything too much. I just wanted it to be, and to fluff about being ridiculous. This book hit the mark in some aspects of that, and then fell flat in others. I was looking for vampire cowboys, and I got vampire cowboys, but the execution of said vampire cowboys was lacking. Honestly, the first chunk of the book was a lot of fun. We met the main characters, and learned plenty about… Read more »

[ARC Review] This Shattered World by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner

I LOVED the first book in this series, These Broken Stars. It was full of heart stopping action and swoon worthy romance. While the second book, This Shattered World, was full of action. For me, the romance part fell a little flat. I just didn’t connect with Jubilee and Flynn. I felt that it was realistic to have the two characters that are caught up in a revolution and conspiracies not to be declaring undying love after only a week. I also didn’t really care if they hooked up or not. I felt the story moved a little slower and… Read more »
