It is HARD to find a good mystery in the young adult genre. Recently, more of these types of stories have made their way to the young adult book shelves. […]
I am not sure how to classify Jennifer Ryan’s books. I read most of her Montana Men series. And now she’s started this spin-off, Montana Heat. Delving into the law […]
Bear with me a moment…. A few weeks ago I went back to my hometown to visit my parents. As I drove to my childhood home, I couldn’t help […]
I really couldn’t control my all-out sprint from the ending of White Hot, headfirst into starting the last book in the Hidden Legacy trilogy, Wildfire. The writing team of Ilona […]
In the realm of book series, we readers have very little patience. We kick, scream, and throw epic tantrums when the next book in a beloved series doesn’t come out […]
Like your romance a little dirty? Ah, c’mon… I can admit it, I do! Sophie Jordan can write fun historicals but oh, can she write dirty bad boys…
Kasie West is one of my “happy place” authors. I can count on her to write a great young adult story that won’t weigh me down with angst, nasty unnecessary drama, or leave me dangling off a cliff when all is said and done.
I’ve been looking forward to Archer’s story since Jill Shalvis’ the last full book in the Heartbreaker Bay series.
Before I begin, can I just say that I love that the main character’s name is “Jill”?! What a completely normal, everyday name!! I have total love for that.
The unique storytelling format added a ton of humor to this second chance romance with the added story about “crazy” parents (tongue firmly in cheek).
Would you believe that I actually read this book AND then joined the book tour? Yep, I enjoyed this story THAT much. So besides a review, I can share an excerpt and a tour-wide giveaway. I so smart 🙂
I’ve just read my first Jill Shalvis book. Where have you been all my life, “Jill Shalvis books”? Oops, there’s one sitting on my bookshelf, unread. Dammit. I […]
So there’s this Queen that can keep everyone safe from the mean, nasty natural spirits that inhabit this world. The Queen can do this by controlling these water, fire, earth, wood, and air spirits by using the power they gave her over them. Do you see anything wrong with this scenario? Oh, yeah, a lot can go wrong…
I love stories with the soft spoken, hard working, tough guy who is nothing but a gentleman to the ladies. Yep, I like a strong guy 🙂
What a diamond in the rough I found! On a whim, I picked up Cheryl Etchison’s Here and Now, the second book in her American Valor series.
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.
Did I just read one of the nicest, purest romances ever? Perhaps….
“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event hosted at Breaking the Spine. We share those books we can’t wait to get our hands on!
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 […]
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.
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…
Even though it’s not out until October this year, I’m looking forward to reading this new series from Nichole Chase. I’ve wanted to read her books for a while now so this new series is a great place to start. And the cover is pretty to look at.
