Audio Review: The Defiance by A.G. Henley

Audio Review: The Defiance by A.G. Henley

March 8, 2018 Reviews 0

The Defiance never gets old! This is my third time reading ‘s zombie-esque dystopian and first time listening to the audiobook. I love Peree and Fenn, their world, and the fight for a better life. In this installment of the series, Fenn and Peree are back in their villages and must convince their people to return with them to Koolkuna and their protected waters. Fenn is a different person than who we met in the first book. She is more independent now and not afraid to speak her mind. I liked seeing this version of Fenn as she grieves the loss… Read more »

February #2018HW – Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo

February #2018HW – Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo

March 5, 2018 Reviews 0

Not what I was expecting, but sometimes that can be a good thing. Crooked Kingdom by broke me and put me back together again. It’s hard to really describe these characters without remembering (with a little horror) that they range in age from 17-20. They are still kids for all intents and purposes, and it hurt my heart every time that fact was thrown in my face. Picking up where Six of Crows left off, Kaz is on the warpath. He has concocted the schemes to end all schemes in order to get Inej back and teach Van Eck a lesson. In fact, Kaz… Read more »

I was so excited to start Lake Silence by . I loved the first part of , and I was curious to see where the author would take us next. I wasn’t disappointed 😀 Welcome to a small town in the middle of Wild Country off the coast of one of the Finger Lakes, Lake Silence. Vicki DeVine is a recently divorced woman trying to make a go of the property she inherited in the divorce, The Jumble. What Vicki doesn’t realize is that the Jumble is actually a terra indigene community. This makes for quite the surprise when the book opens with one… Read more »

Audio Review: One Blood Ruby by Melissa Marr

Audio Review: One Blood Ruby by Melissa Marr

February 26, 2018 Reviews 0

I was REALLY looking forward to starting One Blood Ruby by after I had read the first book in the series. I enjoyed Seven Black Diamonds that much! I liked the multiple POVs, the Fae living in the human world, the modern setting, really all of it. So why was One Blood Ruby not as good as I was hoping?! The book picks up pretty much right where it left off. Lilywhite, now Lilydark, is about to be named the heir to the Hidden Throne. However she has some stipulations, namely that she would like to live in both worlds, stop the war, offer protections to… Read more »

February 24, 2018 Reviews 4

Happy Saturday y’all! Earlier this month you voted for me to read Geekerella by , and I’m SO glad that you did. This is a fun book, full of fangirling, fandoms, and a little romance too. If you enjoy contemporary romance, I highly recommend this sweet YA. Geekerella by is a sweet, fun contemporary YA romance centered around fandoms. Elle is a girl obsessed with the cult-classic show Starfield. When the show gets a movie reboot, she is all kinds of excited until she learns that the soap star Darien Freeman is playing the lead. What Elle doesn’t realize though is that Darien is just… Read more »

Review: The Wedding Date by Jasmine Guillory

Review: The Wedding Date by Jasmine Guillory

February 23, 2018 Reviews 1

When I picked up The Wedding Date by , I was expecting a sweet, contemporary romance set over the course of a whirlwind weekend. I based that assumption off the title, having skimmed the blurb. Imagine my disappointment when the wedding date was only the first 20% of the book. Despite this disappointment, there were other factors that detracted from my ability to like the story. But before I get into those, here are the things I really liked about the book: Interracial couple: Alexa is black and Drew is white (hence the cover 😉) Meet during a power outage on an… Read more »

I really enjoyed Driftwood Cove by ! The last book in the kind of fell flat for me so I was hesitant picking this one up. But there was no reason to be. I loved every minute of this book and devoured it in almost one sitting (I fell asleep with two chapters left….granted it was 3am). For those of you new to the series, each book follows a different couple and is told in dual POV. It can be read as a standalone, but just know that other characters from previous books do show up in each one. Driftwood Cove follows the… Read more »

Review: By the Book by Julia Sonneborn

Review: By the Book by Julia Sonneborn

February 12, 2018 Reviews 0

I don’t know about you, but I love, LOVE modern adaptations of Jane Austen classics. Is it just me? Seriously, I’m obsessed with them. I can’t get enough! It always astounds me how Austen’s thoughts on women, relationships, romance, and politics can be transferred to today. This is a woman who lived in the 18th century and yet her work lives on today, over two hundred years later AND it is still relevant. By the Book by is a testament to that! Following the story of a college professor, By the Book is a loose, modern retelling of Austen’s classic Persuasion. Anne Corey thinks she… Read more »
