Book Review: A Court of Thorns and Roses by Maas

A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah Maas So, I’m gonna preface this by saying that I would not put this book ANYWHERE near a teen shelf. This is solidly New Adult, which is  17 / 18+   –  basically a heavy duty (HEAVY DUTY) PG-13, more likely soft R rating. But here’s the […]

The Scarlet Trilogy by A.C. Gaughen

I have a bit of a confession to make: I owned Scarlet for over a year before I pulled it off my bookshelf and set to reading it. And I bought Lady Thief  before I ever read Scarlet because I was a sucker for the idea behind the story and the breathtaking covers. But I still […]

Joyride by Anna Banks

Joyride by Anna Banks Pub Date: June 2, 2015 I received this title in return for an honest review. Many thanks to Macmillan Publishing for offering me a chance to review it. Joyride is the first book I’ve read by Anna Banks and I suspect I’ll be reading more of her work in the future […]

Book Review: The Lux Series by Armentrout

Want to know, hands down, the best way to diet? Read the Lux series by Jennifer Armentrout. OBSIDIAN, ONYX, OPAL, ORIGIN, and SHADOWS I know. You’re like, “Poor woman . . . her brain is finally fried. She thinks you can diet by reading.” YOU CAN! Want to know why? Because this series is so […]

BOOK REVIEW: SIEGE AND STORM (Dark YA Fantasy)

OH YEAH! As much as I loved SHADOW AND BONE, Leigh Bardugo surpasses her first novel with SIEGE AND STORM. SIEGE picks up with Mal and Alina on the run from the Darkling after a throw down / massacre in a dark swath of land known as The Fold (see review of first book HERE). Bardugo […]

BOOK REVIEW: THROUGH THE EVER NIGHT

THROUGH THE EVER NIGHT by VERONICA ROSSI So, it ain’t no secret that I loved UNDER THE NEVER SKY, Rossi’s first book in this fabulous dystopian series. Of course, being that I adored book #1 meant that I had high standards set for book #2 (THROUGH THE EVER NIGHT). Dang it all, Rossi actually outdid […]

BOOK REVIEW: DEFIANCE by C.J. REDWINE

DEFIANCE will hold a special place in my heart since it was the first thing I ever bought on my NOOK Color (and, realizing that I am a MAC girl at heart, it is saying something that I even GOT a NOOK . . .). Aside from being my first purchase, however, it is a […]

BOOK REVIEW: SHADOW AND BONE

SHADOW AND BONE by LEIGH BARDUGO When I was a child, my grandmother used to make the most decadent, velvet smooth chocolate sauce in the world. I remember pouring it generously over vanilla bean ice cream and watching it turn the snowy mounds into a river of milky goodness. The best part was always dragging […]

BOOK REVIEW: THRONE OF GLASS

THRONE OF GLASS by SARAH J. MAAS A++ Brilliant! Must, MUST be read. I first heard about THRONE OF GLASS on an agent’s blog and will admit, I wasn’t instantly dying to buy it. Assassin? Eh. Glass Castle? Eh. THANK HEAVENS I DID BUY IT! Want to know just how good it was? When I got […]
