Review: The Space Between the Stars by Anne Corlett

Review: The Space Between the Stars by Anne Corlett

June 16, 2017 Reviews 1

Have you ever read a story that you fall into and forget isn’t real? The Space Between the Stars by is like that. I fell into this story from the first words and found myself so engrossed with the characters, their plight, and their adventure that I forgot about the world around me. Jamie Allenby is a woman not young, but also not old (honestly I’m not sure if her actual age is revealed and pictured her to be in her mid-thirties). She needs space, away from her loved ones to figure out her own life. BUT a nasty virus has turned… Read more »

Review: The Dragon’s Price by Bethany Wiggins

Review: The Dragon’s Price by Bethany Wiggins

June 15, 2017 Reviews 0

I had really, REALLY high hopes for The Dragon’s Price by . Honestly the name says it all….dragons. Dragons are my favorite in high fantasy. There are so many ways an author can take dragons. Dragons can be mean, like to snack on cattle and humans, or they can be wise creatures who protect humans. Neither is the case in this book. Basically, two kingdoms who hate each other and have very strong prejudices towards one another come together when the princess of one kingdom reaches a marriageable age and “sacrifices” her to the prince of the other kingdom in marriage OR… Read more »

Review: King’s Cage by Victoria Aveyard

Review: King’s Cage by Victoria Aveyard

June 12, 2017 Reviews 0

I’m honestly at a loss for words. It’s no secret that I loved the first two books in the series. I loved them so much that the ending of Glass Sword had me ugly crying and screaming at my Kindle because it could NOT end like that. I couldn’t wait an entire year to read what would happen to Mare. But I did wait. I waited longer than a year, even though I preordered and received King’s Cage the day it came out. I was scared to start it. Scared of how I would find Mare, scared of what Maven was doing with the… Read more »

Review: Trigger by Scarlett Dawn

I’m not gonna lie. I had high hopes for this book. Trigger by is the first in a new dystopian series about shifters. I adore dystopians and the idea of making a dystopian world where shifters are the rulers was intriguing to say the least. The fact that I have so far loved everything I’ve read by the author also raised my stakes in this book. Unfortunately I was underwhelmed and had a hard time finishing the book as a result. The story follows Poppy, the almost 25 year old daughter of the resistance leader. At the beginning of the book, she… Read more »

Happy Saturday y’all! This is my stop during the book blitz for Keeping Kyler by . This book blitz is organized by Lola’s Blog Tours. The blitz runs from 30 May till 5 June. You can see the tour schedule here: http://www.lolasblogtours.net/book-blitz-keeping-kyler-by-siobhan-davis Review Okay, so I have a confession: I’m not a big contemporary reader (I know that’s not a huge confession because I’ve said it a lot!). I never have been and I never will be. If I pick up a contemporary, it’s because A) I’m in the mood for some clean, Hallmark-type romance, B) I want that HEA… Read more »

Review: Lake Town by Jane Redd

Review: Lake Town by Jane Redd

June 2, 2017 Reviews 0

Okay, I hate to admit it but I was not very impressed with this book. Lake Town by is the second book in the dystopian series . I really enjoyed Solstice so I was looking forward to continuing Jezebel’s story. However the pace of the book, plot holes, and poor character development led to a big disappointment for me. Jezebel James is on the run with Rueben (the boy she met during her incarceration by the Legislature). He knows what she is and along with a small band of insurgents he plans to get her out of the city. Much to Jez’s surprise, Sol… Read more »

Review: A Strange Hymn by Laura Thalassa

Des is back! This is not a drill. DES IS BACK! A Strange Hymn by is the second book in series and I seriously couldn’t have been more excited to dive back into the Otherworld. For those of you that have not read the first book in the series (Rhapsodic), there may be minor spoilers to that book in this review. Read at your own risk! Rhapsodic left me dying for more. I wanted to know how Callie would come back from Karnon’s torture and Des’s darkness. I wanted to know more about the secrets the Bargainer keeps and oh God did I… Read more »

Review: When It’s Real by Erin Watt

Review: When It’s Real by Erin Watt

May 29, 2017 Reviews 4

All I can say is WOW!!! When It’s Real by the author duo known as was a fantastic, contemporary read (and friends that comes from someone who doesn’t care for contemporary). Following the story of a former teen heart throb wanting to remake his rockstar image and the girl hired to be his fake girlfriend, I could not read it fast enough! I loved the characters, the story, and the combustible romance that followed. Oakley Ford is an enigma. I honestly wanted to hate him. He is arrogant and entitled, two things I personally cannot stand, yet Oak grew on me. The… Read more »

Review: Losing Kyler by Siobhan Davis

April 6, 2017 Reviews 3

Okay I have to admit something….Losing Kyler by blew me away! I’m not usually a fan of YA contemporary, mainly because I loathe drama and teen angst. Knowing this about me, you are probably wondering why I even bothered reading this book. Honestly, it’s because I love the author and her other sci-fi series. is the master at writing complex characters, heart-stopping action/suspense, and swoon-worthy kisses. Seriously, sometimes a kiss takes a couple of pages worth of a book….that is one heck of a kiss! But I digress, Losing Kyler is written in the same vein as The Royals series by Erin Watt. There is… Read more »

Today I’m so excited to share with you the next book in ‘s series. This sweet romance is a must read for lovers of second chance stories. Starlight Bridge by is the second full novel in the series and follows the eldest Gallagher brother as he returns home to find that he not only still has feelings for his ex-wife but she may also have the same for him. I’ll be honest I was more than a little curious about Ava’s story after reading the first book. Sophie’s concern for her cousin and how much the woman had changed was intriguing…. Read more »
