Saturday Shorts: The Island by Jen Minkman

Saturday Shorts: The Island by Jen Minkman

September 6, 2014 Reviews 4

  Happy Saturday everyone! I hope you are having an amazing day. I know I am, my Vols are playing in just a few short hours and of course the whole family is already decked out in Tennessee orange (#GBO). But that’s not why you’re here is it? Today’s short story is really a novella and is a bit longer than the normal shorts I post, but it fits here. The last couple of weeks I haven’t read a dystopian novel and to be completely honest I needed a fix. I came across Jen Minkman’s novella series The Island. I already owned… Read more »

Your Soul to Take by Sean Hayden

August 29, 2014 Reviews 0

Your Soul to Take by Sean Hayden is book two of Rise of the Fallen and picks up exactly where book one left off. If you haven’t read book one, stop reading my review now and read book one first!!!!! At the end of book one, Connor kills a vampire he turned, but not before the vampire got to his sister Caelyn. Caelyn is dead or at least everyone thinks she is and is in the morgue. Connor is with her and she wakes up scaring the crap out of him in the process. So now Connor’s sister is a vampire and his… Divider

Bound Forever by Hanna Peach

August 28, 2014 Reviews 0

Bound Forever by Hanna Peach is the exciting conclusion to Bound by Lies. Caden and Kitten (I still cringe with that name) are on the run, hiding from Jacob, the man who started all this madness. At the end of book one, Kitten learns that Caden is an undercover cop, working to bring down Jacob’s organization, that he was using her. Or was he? She thinks he was so that’s all that matters in her eyes. Caden has secrets, lots of secrets and Kitten plans to uncover them all. So I was pleasantly surprised with this book. If you read my review of… Divider

Books I Want to Read but Don’t Own Yet

August 26, 2014 Features 1

Happy Tuesday everyone! It’s that time of the week again where I get to make a list. I <3 Lists 😀 So this weeks topic is “Top Ten Books I Really Want To Read But Don’t Own Yet.” This one took a little bit of thinking for me, because as I confessed last week I’m the world’s worst one-clicker on Amazon. So I own way to many books, all of them I want to read, but there’s just not enough time in a day. Also, just a little FYI, this list is a bit repetitive from earlier lists this month. Top… Read more »
