If you follow my reviews you know that I love Richelle Mead’s Bloodlines series and really enjoyed the Vampire Academy novels. So I try all of Richelle’s other young adult novels. However, each time I’ve been let down. She just hasn’t been able to capture the beauty of the characters and the world she created for Vampire Academy.
THE UTTERLY UNINTERESTING AND UNADVENTUROUS TALES OF FRED, THE VAMPIRE ACCOUNTANT is one of the best books I’ve read this year. I love urban fantasy and paranormal romance, but sometimes they get a little too serious. These are stories about werewolves, vampires, witches, and eldritch horrors. These are ridiculous and crazy things, I love the serious stories, but it’s fun to take a comedic twist on the genre.
The legend and myth of Robin Hood has always fascinated me. The tale of a guerrilla stealing from the looting rulers and giving back to the producers has always been a story that has resonated with me. So I’m always drawn to Robin Hood books. Most of them aren’t that original, but I still enjoy the retelling from a different authors perspective. So when I first clicked on A DARING SACRIFICE and found out it was a Robin Hood retelling, but with a female Robin Hood, I was thrilled. This was just the new twist I was looking for on the Robin Hood legend. However, I was quickly disappointing.

MIDNIGHT MARKED has all the loveable hallmarks of this series: food, camaraderie, and Chicago pride. Dolloped on top of this delicious mix are a few relationship milestones and some impending doom, making for an enjoyable read all around.
I probably would have enjoyed BOUND much more had I read GUARDED as it took awhile for me to finally get comfortable with who is who and what was happening and why.

HIS RUTHLESS BITE is just as delicious as the previous books in the Scandals With Bite series. With romantic moments balanced out by suspenseful situations, HIS RUTHLESS BITE offers readers the rare combination of historical and paranormal romance, and does it very well.
Dark, original and awesome, GRIM TIDINGS is a strong follow-up to Kittredge’s BLACK DOG. With less of the elements that I don’t like and more suspense and drama, GRIM TIDINGS is an excellent second book in the Hellhound Chronicles.
