Review: Sublime by Christina Lauren

Review: Sublime by Christina Lauren

October 18, 2014 Review 0 ★★★

Don’t be fooled into expecting the usual YA ghostly love story, SUBLIME will entrap those tender expectations and twist them into horror. While the characters are as charismatic as expected from the expert romance duo Christina Lauren, most of the ghostly promise of the plot ultimately fell flat.


Review: Accidentally…Over? (Accidentally Yours, #5) by Mimi Jean Pamfiloff

When the world is about to end according to a prophecy of course you are going to get a wild and crazy ride from the characters in the Accidentally Yours series. Being the last book in the series, ACCIDENTALLY…OVER? is filled with hilarious moments and a pretty entertaining storyline. The pacing is quick but the story can be confusing if you are starting the series with this book.

With DARING, the second book in the Pax Arcana series, Elliott James becomes an urban fantasy author to watch. DARING manages to take everything I liked about book one and keep it, chuck everything I hated, and not come across as a sophomore slump. It’s a surprisingly good read that really steps up the series.


Release Day Review: Stitching Snow by R. C. Lewis

Release Day Review: Stitching Snow by R. C. Lewis

October 14, 2014 Review 2 ★★★

A very creative take on the Snow White fairy tale, STITCHING SNOW has a brilliant heroine coupled with a stubborn and honorable hero, taking place in what appears to be a galaxy, far far away. While some of the plot points were a bit predictable, it was a diverting read, and a fun way to spend a few hours.


Review: Snow Like Ashes (Snow Like Ashes #1) by Sara Raasch

Review: Snow Like Ashes (Snow Like Ashes #1) by Sara Raasch

October 14, 2014 Review 1 ★★★★

Though the world of SNOW LIKE ASHES by Sara Raasch is a bit uninspired in its construction, Raasch more than makes up for kingdoms named after seasons and capital cities named for misspelled calendar months with Meira and the other refugees of the Kingdom of Winter. An aspiring soldier, desperate to be important to her people and her lost homeland, sixteen-year-old Meira struggles with being kept off the battlefield and forced into a world of political machinations. She’s a pawn, she’s a symbol, she’s a hero – much like THE HUNGER GAMES Katniss, all Meira really knows is that she wants to survive. That, and she’s in love with her best friend, the once and future king.


Review: Chasing Power by Sarah Beth Durst

Review: Chasing Power by Sarah Beth Durst

October 13, 2014 Review 0 ★★★★

I wasn’t sure what to expect from CHASING POWER, especially after reading the summary. The female lead is a thief and the male lead blackmails her into helping him on a quest. Not exactly the sort of thing I usually jump into reading. Still, I chose it for review and gave it a shot. Turned out to be a very good decision.




Review: A Highland Wolf Christmas (Heart of the Wolf, #15) by Terry Spear

Review: A Highland Wolf Christmas (Heart of the Wolf, #15) by Terry Spear

October 9, 2014 Review 2 ★★★★

A HIGHLAND WOLF CHRISTMAS is a wonderfully sweet holiday romance stock full of kilted Scotsmen who relish in sword fighting and castles with many a hidden nook to have your romantic trysts in. Both Calla and Guthrie are featured in previous book in this series so it was neat to finally see more of these two and learn more about their lives.
