Blog Tour: No Good Deed by Kara Connolly

Blog Tour: No Good Deed by Kara Connolly

July 24, 2017 Reviews 0

No Good Deeds by is a fresh take on the Robin Hood legend involving a little time travel. For me, retellings are a recent love. I’ve not always been a fan, but I really enjoyed this one. And Robin Hood, well he’s one of my favorites. I love the myth and legend surrounding this outlaw who stole from the rich to give to the poor. It’s nice to think the man existed at some point in the Middle Ages, fighting the people who were drunk on power to save the little guy. Robin Hood is iconic, which is why I thought… Read more »

Review: Ash and Quill by Rachel Caine

Review: Ash and Quill by Rachel Caine

July 14, 2017 Reviews 2

series just keeps getting better and better!! Ash and Quill by is the third book in this series and so far my favorite installment. The action and suspense are tripled in this book compared to the rest of the series. Please note that if you have not read the first two books, there will be minor spoilers to the previous books in this review. Read at your own risk! Ash and Quill picks up right where Paper and Fire left off. Jess and his friends along with Scholar Wolfe and Captain Santi have survived the Welsh invasion of London only to escape to Philadelphia, a burner-controlled city. Obviously… Read more »

Review: Perfectly Oblivious by Robin Daniels

Review: Perfectly Oblivious by Robin Daniels

July 13, 2017 Reviews 4

I first came across Perfectly Oblivious by on a Facebook fan page for Kelly Oram. At the time I didn’t realize they were sisters, but now it makes perfect sense. Friends if you love and are obsessed with Kelly as I am (she’s about the only YA contemporary I’ll read), then you are in for a treat. Perfectly Oblivious by is a sweet story about two best friends falling in love. Told in dual POV, the reader knows all creating some dang fine irony as we read the characters’ struggles. Bianca Barnes is who I wanted to be growing up. Petite, athletic, the girl… Read more »

Review: The Hundredth Queen by Emily R. King

Review: The Hundredth Queen by Emily R. King

July 10, 2017 Reviews 0

So I wasn’t overly impressed with The Hundredth Queen by like I thought I’d be. I thought I’d be fangirling over this book, writing a really enthusiastic review. But instead I feel meh about it. The Hundredth Queen had a lot of potential. It’s a high fantasy with elements of romance and rebellion. Sounds promising right? But in reality it was like all the other YA fantasy books out there where an unskilled, untrained young girl becomes the unwilling face of the rebellion…oh and she falls in love with the first boy she sees (literally!). The orphaned Kalinda was raised by a Sisterhood (similar… Read more »

Weekend Reads #93 – An ACOTAR binge and Fangirl review

July 8, 2017 Reviews 0

Happy Saturday y’all! I don’t know about you but my days have been all messed up this week with the holiday being on a Tuesday. All morning I’ve thought it was Friday 🤦🏼‍♀️ But I digress. I’ve made no secret that this Spring was a massive reading slump for me. Towards the end of May I was getting desperate. NOTHING I read interested me and I do mean nothing. I DNFed several books though for once I do plan to go back and try them again as I don’t feel that my frame of mind gave them a good assessment. So… Read more »

July 6, 2017 Reviews 0

The Shadow Hour by is the second book in the phenomenal urban fantasy series . I loved The Girl at Midnight! I loved the fantasy, I loved the world-building, and I loved Echo. The story is addictive and Echo is a heroine that is easy to fall in love with so I was anxious to start reading the second book. I needed to know what was going to happen to Echo, Caius and the rest of the gang. Please note that this is the second book in a series. There are minor spoilers to the previous book in this review.

Review Primrose Lane by is the third installment to the featuring the Gallagher brothers. This time it is Finn Gallagher, the brooding doctor recovering from his recent injuries in the Congo at the heart of Kitty and Colleen’s matchmaking. I have to say that I enjoyed this book! I planned to read just a few chapters and wound up reading the entire book in one sitting. This seems to happen to me every time I pick up one of ‘s books. The characters are well written, likable and relatable. Plus the dialogue and sweet romance is an easy read. Olivia Davenport… Read more »

They are that good. The characters are relatable, their plight heart-wrenchingly (is that… Read more »

Review: And I Darken by Kiersten White

Review: And I Darken by Kiersten White

June 26, 2017 Reviews 5

It’s no secret that I’m a sucker for historical fiction so I’m ashamed to admit that this book has set on my TBR shelf for more than a year. And I Darken by is the first in an alternate history series that imagines Vlad the Impaler as a woman. Honestly just typing that makes me giddy. I was so excited to start this book. It’s an interesting concept to take one of history’s most feared men and make him a woman. I was more than a little curious to see how the author would pull it off while also staying true… Read more »
