Review: Poison’s Cage by Breeana Shields

Brilliant!! Utterly brilliant! Seriously I have no other words to describe this book. Poison’s Cage by is the fantastic conclusion to Marinda’s story that began in Poison’s Kiss. Full of intrigue, politics, and crisis of conscience, readers will not want to set this book down until the final page. I just thought I loved the first book, it doesn’t even compare to my feelings after finishing its sequel. Picking up a few months after the end of Poison’s Kiss, Marinda is back with Gita and heading to the Naga’s hideout. She is determined to bring the Naga down and bravely volunteers to be a spy… Read more »

Happy Saturday y’all! It took me way too long to read Unearthed by but I finally finished it last night. In short, I wasn’t impressed. However the ending won me over and I will eagerly look forward to the sequel. If you enjoy scifi that will be very reminiscent of a Battlestar Galactica episode crossed with Indiana Jones, than I believe you will enjoy this one. Also be sure to read past the review to see which book y’all voted on for me to read this month. I’m excited about it 😀 Unearthed by was one of my most anticipated reads for 2018…. Read more »

Between the Blade and the Heart by is the first in her duology. This book was all action with a little romance which made it a fast read despite its size. My favorite part of the book though was the blending of urban contemporary with Norse mythology. It’s not a common thing in YA fantasy and I loved seeing it here. did a fantastic job of taking the mythology and interweaving it with today’s world. Following Malin, a young Valkyrie in training, Between the Blade and the Heart brings into question the choice of free will and the guiding hand of fate. Malin… Read more »

She does know that their friends with benefits arrangement can’t continue because it will eventually break her heart. The question is how does she tell Asher that.

Entangled’s Under the Mistletoe Blog Tour: The Christmas Promise by Sean D. Young

December 15, 2017 Reviews 1

The Christmas Promise by is the second in her series which revolves around the McClendon sisters. Each book can be read as a standalone with characters crossing over to the other books. This particular book is about Jennifer McClendon and a vacation that gives her more than she bargained for. I like Jennifer. She’s a strong heroine who despite circumstances (like finding her boyfriend cheating on her) keeps going. She doesn’t allow the lemons that life throws at her to get in the way of her hopes and dreams. Simeon is just as likable. In fact I found myself falling for… Read more »

12 Days at Bleakly Manor by is a Christmas retelling of the Dickens classic Bleakly Manor. I started this story with zero expectations but quickly fell in love with the writing style of , the mystery surrounding the manor and its guests, and the jilted romance between Ben and Clara. It reminds me a little of Agatha Christie’s And Then There Were None minus the murdering of course 😉 Clara is a young woman who has lost everything in the last year. On Christmas Eve the year prior she was to wed a man who not only left her at the alter but was… Read more »

Happy Saturday y’all! The closer the holidays get the less it seems I have time to read. Do any of you feel that way?
