Awe, man… I was so totally looking forward to Tate and Wren’s story. I love a good “you annoy the crap out of me” to “let make babies” romance.
Game On is a great young adult story with substance and sweetness all rolled together.
I’m just going to get this out of the way first: This story has a love triangle that isn’t a love triangle. There is an obvious couple who […]
By now you’ve most likely heard about the book Illuminae. It’s innovative, fast-paced, and extremely mind-numbingly contemplative. I’m sure many of my brain cells suffered in the reading of this book. […]
Did I just read one of the nicest, purest romances ever? Perhaps….
Ms. Carlino has done it to me again. I don’t even know where to start.
I’m going to start off this review by sharing my “Colleen Hoover” resume. So I’ve read about five of her books and I’ve enjoyed every one of them. I […]
This is one of my favorite lines from Monty Python and it fits so many things in life. It just sings in my head whenever I come across […]
I just read and reviewed Sophie Jordan’s Hell Breaks Loose the other day and I can’t help but notice that I have another book on my hands here with a bad boy and his love interest in an impossible happily ever after situation. But Jen McLaughlin’s Dare to Stay is different in that Chris, our bad boy, really eff’d up. He IS a bad boy who is possibly on his way to redemption.
Being second book in a series is always tough. “Sophomore slump” is what they call it when the second book doesn’t live up to the quality of the first […]
Ahhh… the sun shines brighter on the days I read a book by Kasie West. She is one of my favorite summer-time authors. I think my head might explode if […]
Lori Foster, besides being an all-around fabulous human, is an author I know I can go to for a well written romance that 9 times out of 10, will include a bit of suspense to keep my heart rate up all the way to a happily ever after. In Don’t Tempt Me, Ms. Foster even offers up double the happiness by the end of the story – a veritable two for one 😉
I think I’m batting about 50% this month on books I’m reading. I’ve had a few lately that I’ve wanted to DNF but I managed to stick it out and finish them. Unfortunately, this particular book was one that actually made me more mad by the end.
There are some romance tropes that just drive me up the wall and back down the other side. Hidden in this tale was a storyline that had me putting this book down once, pondering a “DNF” status for it, but finally picked it back up and enjoyed the story for what it is: good writing and intriguing characters.
Young adult urban fantasy is hard to find. GOOD young adult urban fantasy is even harder find. Forget about finding GOOD, DARK, INVENTIVE, and SMART urban fantasy in the young adult section… until Schwab’s This Savage Song.
I might own a few of Kiersten White’s previous books. I might not have read them yet, either. I may have to change that immediately.
It’s time for the tenth book in the Charley Davidson series! And believe it or not, it’s getting harder and harder to review Ms. Jones’ books.
Realistic and an impossibly horrible situation – that’s what drew me to this young adult contemporary story of hope and a bit of romance.
Today I’m participating in a blog tour for Cecy Robson’s Inseverable, book one in her new Carolina Beach series. This is, IMHO, something a bit different from her….
I don’t think I’ve read a story plot this deep or thought provoking as this one in a long, long time. My brain muscles are still un-cramping from all the thinking and flat out speed reading I’ve done in the last two days. This is just one of those stories that doesn’t have a good place to stop, regroup, and circle your thoughts back around.
Non-spoiler: If you don’t like love triangles, just don’t read this story.
Oh us silly women. We forgive waaaaay too easily. I love just about everything Karen Erickson (aka Monica Murphy) writes. I eat up her books for breakfast, lunch, and dinner – yummy 🙂 So I can honestly say that my ONLY complaint about Ignite is that our heroine needed a backbone. Let me explain with my completely biased but glowing review…
What happens when the most uptight, over-achieving, driven student in the senior class ends up getting drunk as a skunk and wakes up next to the school’s most notorious playboy? A whole lot of character growth, sprinked with sweet, tender family moments that make this contemporary romance an easy winner for a summer time quick read.
I’m not one to read girly, friendship-type books. I actually run away in the opposite direction from them. But when I picked up the review copy of The Unexpected Everything, I had no clue that ‘friendship’ was a pretty big part of the story’s plot. Turned out, it wasn’t that painful for me to endure.
