Review: Chosen One by Scarlett Dawn

Review: Chosen One by Scarlett Dawn

November 30, 2017 Reviews 0

Chosen One by is the 6th installment in her massive series and the third for her heroine Caro. This book was lukewarm for me. There were parts I loved, parts I disliked, and parts that were just “meh.” I wanted to love this book because I really like Caro, but there were some issues that I just couldn’t overcome. The Likes: Caro! I really enjoy this character. She is one of those that just faces the world and what it brings her head on and doesn’t care what others might think about her. She’s feisty, courageous, and loyal. Seriously I root… Read more »

Review: Etched in Bone by Anne Bishop

Review: Etched in Bone by Anne Bishop

November 10, 2017 Reviews 2

Well….I don’t even know where to begin. I was so excited to read Etched in Bone by . I mean seriously guys, I was super excited. I devoured the first part of the series. I loved the off-beat humor, Simon and Meg, the Courtyard….all of it. I had extremely high hopes for the ending of the series, but y’all….it was SO boring! Almost 500 pages and really I can’t tell you what the plot was, it moved so slowly. The premise of Etched in Bone is that the Elders, the big scary Others who even the scary ones living in the Courtyard are scared… Read more »

Review: The Shadow Hour by Melissa Grey

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: Transcend by Scarlett Dawn

Review: Transcend by Scarlett Dawn

June 23, 2017 Reviews 0

This book has ALL THE FEELS!!! Transcend by built me up and then gutted me. Following Trigger, the second book in the series takes on a new couple while continuing the plot thread of the previous book. While I made no secret of my lack of interest in Trigger, I found myself engrossed in Transcend and fell in love with the characters and world Scarlett has created. Mina is perhaps my favorite character in the series so far. She is a scholar, still young enough to not face the decision of marriage or army, and she’s had a formal upbringing which the author conveys with her… Read more »

Merry Mondays #30 – Fictional Fathers

June 5, 2017 Features, Merry Mondays 2

Merry Mondays is a monthly meme hosted here @ Mom with a Reading Problem on the first Monday of each month and every Monday in December to celebrate the holiday season year round. Each month a different topic centered around the holidays will be discussed. In May, we celebrated Moms so it is only fair that June’s topic is “Dad’s Turn. Who is your favorite literary dad?” As I mentioned last month, I read a lot of YA dystopian. Parents are usually missing from these. They are either completely absent or vaguely discussed and rarely appear in actual dialogue. So like last month, it made… Read more »

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 »

City of Fallen Angels by is the 4th book in and picks up 6 weeks after the ending of City of Glass. Personally I had a hard time with this one. Don’t get me wrong, I really enjoyed it and it is pivotal for the series IMO, but the characters are in such a dark place. Jace is struggling with the aftermath of Clary’s choice to save him, Simon is realizing what it means when you are immortal AND have the mark of Cain, and Clary is dealing with her anger towards her mom, her nonexistent feelings for her brother and father… Read more »
