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 »

In Wicked, Jennifer L. Armentrout, does it again and delivers another fantastic book. This time the heroine is up against the fae. The fae are not some sweet magical race that is just misunderstood. No, they are wicked and feed off the human. It is up to Ivy and her the Order she works for to fight the fae for the good of the human race. I really liked this book because it had everything I have come to love about a JLA book. It had a heroine that kicked butt and didn’t take orders from a man. It had… Read more »

I had hard time finishing this book because it was just down right boring in parts. I powered through and I finished the book. In the end, I didn’t hat but I didn’t love it either. I am giving an indifferent shrug and three stars because it is just an okay book, nothing special. Seven years ago Imogen’s life was torn apart when her parents died in a fire.   She cut off ties with her extended family in England and lived for years in New York with her guardians. Then one day she finds out the last of her living… Read more »

[Review] As Long As You Love Me by Ann Aguirre

This book is a standalone story but it is part of series about three roommates. While I liked I Want it That Way, I liked this book better because there was just something about the characters that I could really relate to. The main character Lauren has major social anxiety. It has become such an issue that she has to quit school and go back home before her anxiety turns into a major drinking problem. I can relate so well to social anxiety because I have some of the same issues. While mine probably aren’t as debilitating as Lauren’s it… Read more »

I know I have said this before but I have become a big fan of the Hard Ink series. I like that each book focuses on one guy in the team but is just a piece in the overall story line of the series. In Hard to Come By the focus is Marz. I have liked Marz since the first book because he is easy going guy that will lay down his life to protect the ones he loves. I also like Marz because I don’t know while he can get emotional there is nothing emo about him. Plus, I… Read more »

I liked this short story in the Hard Ink Series. It was sweet and it was it also like a nice reprieve in the overall story line. The series is about five men who are ex-military Special Forces. In the first book the daughter of commander who betrayed them and cost them their careers shows up asking for help. The five guys plus some extra friends band back together to find help the daughter while clearing their name. The story line is kind of like A-Team meets a romance novel. This short is all about Easy. He starts having feelings… Read more »

[Manga Monday] Skip Beat

Hello manga lovers! This week on Manga Monday, we’re looking at Skip Beat! by Yoshiki Nakamura. Skip Beat! was first published in Hakusensha’s shōjo manga magazine Hana to Yume in February 2002. Viz Media bought the rights and features it in Shojo Beat.

The image depicts a smiling girl with short, strawberry blond hair. She wears a denim shirt-dress, and looks very indicative to shojo manga. This is Kyoko Mogami, our protagonist. Kyoko grows up abandoned… Read more »

I saw this book as recommended reading on Amazon a few month ago. I thought this book looked interesting but was something I might listen to or read when I had nothing better to do. I was kind of surprised in a good way when I saw the audiobook available on Audible. I have to tell you I went into this book interested but I did have low expectations. I have to say in the end I am glad I gave The Book of Ivy a shot because I ended up really liking it. I liked The Book of Ivy… Read more »

[Audiobook Review] A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray

I first starting reading this book when I got it from Edelweiss and I thought just ok. I sat it to the side because I knew this was going to be something I was going to have to listen to the audiobook. The beginning of this book is setup and full of some technical jargon plus it is kind of confusing with all the jumping around. I am glad I gave this book another shot because once I finished listening to it I am now hooked. The best way I can describe A Thousand Pieces of You is to compare… Read more »
