This book is giving me the thoughts. My brain cells are tired. My review may show signs of this fatigue and I apologize ahead of time for this. Grammar be damned. Silas be damned, but I am not a walking thesaurus. Who’s Silas? Only the teenage boy of my teenage dreams. And he’s right here, in this book. Right here. Fictional, dammit. But that’s why I read, to escape reality.
I wanted with my entire being to love this story to pieces. It just didn’t have the ending I was looking for…
As soon as I figured out that Ronnie Douglas was Melissa Marr, I had to know what she was going to do with the new adult genre. Especially because she noted that she wrote from experience on her Ronnie Douglas website. Sounds like fun to me!
I have a total thing for heroines who are, how do you say? Quirky? But Jennifer Ryan has gone above and beyond and taken quirky and added a brilliant mind, a kind soul, and a horrible upbringing to build one of my favorite characters of the year! “Cowboy” romances are still new to me – I don’t read all that many – so I’m glad I didn’t let this one get by me!
I’ve always wanted to read a novel by Lora Leigh. Ever since I started working at the library, I would be shelving the paperbacks and the sheer amount of Lora Leigh books would astound me (and pretty much get in my way). Why had I never heard of her before? She wrote paranormal romance for goodness sake! The sheer volume of books in her multiple series had me a bit intimidated, though.
I’m slowly getting caught up on all the fabulous books I read while my blog was down. Even though these are quick reviews, it’s my chance to make sure you notice these books for those times when you’re standing in front of the stacks at the library and you have no clue what you want to read. OR, better yet, put them on your Amazon wishlist and watch out for those price drops!
Some of the books I get to review have expiration dates. It’s hard for me to keep track of but I try my darnedest. Joyride was a book I was originally mediocre about but I saw it was going to expire in two days so I started reading it.
The review where I lost my mind somewhere along the way…
Megan Erickson is an author I’ve noticed around the blogs but it wasn’t until a recent review I saw on Nick’s Book Blog for one of her other books that I took the leap. Besides, how could I refuse such a catchy series name and smart book titles? Dirty mechanics? Yes, I’d let these guys work on my chassis… okay, not really, I’m married but they make great matches for our sweet heroines!
I freakin’ bawled my eyes out when I finished reading this final book in the Crown and Key trilogy. Heads up people – if you want to read this series, start at book one, The Shadow Revolution, and don’t skip book two, The Undying Legion. Only then will you properly and fully enjoy the complete experience of the Crown and Key trilogy (*cue the John Williams music*).
