BITE SOMEBODY ELSE is a hilarious and irreverent romp of a vampire romance story. While there were some funny bits and quirky characters (my favorite kind of character) I found it to come off as a bit too juvenile at times and the plot seemed to meander and drag towards the beginning and end which obviously lessened my overall enjoyment of the book.

THE SUFFERING TREE has themes teens will identify with but the plot holes and writing style overwhelm and distract from the overall novel. Tori Burns and her family move to Chaptico when they are bequeathed a house and plot of land in a will. After her father’s death, Tori is depressed and angry. She’s a cutter who already feels like she doesn’t fit in, and living in the close-knit town just isolates her further.

BORROWED SOULS started out really strong! Promising characters were surrounded in a richly developed world with an awesome magic system… That’s all there ever was though. I wanted to love this book, but the great start fell flat as nothing happened throughout the rest of BORROWED SOULS.

Review: Owl and the Electric Samurai (The Adventures of Owl #3) by Kristi Charish

Review: Owl and the Electric Samurai (The Adventures of Owl #3) by Kristi Charish

A step up from its predecessors, OWL AND THE ELECTRIC SAMURAI is a welcome departure from the all-action, little-plot formula readers are familiar with from the first two novels. Delving deeper into supernatural politics, and significantly raising the stakes, OWL AND THE ELECTRIC SAMURAI shows an maturation of both Charish’s writing, and the main character, Owl.

Review: Mark of Truth (Wicked Kingdoms, #1) by Graceley Knox

Review: Mark of Truth (Wicked Kingdoms, #1) by Graceley Knox

May 23, 2017 Review 0

MARK OF TRUTH hits every expected beat in an urban fantasy/paranormal romance. There’s the loyal teammates, the hunky love interest that she kinda hates, the adopted pets, the adopted child. The world of MARK OF TRUTH is expansive (sometimes to its detriment) and features several rival fae factions.

Review: City of Ghosts (GhostWriters Book 1)

It takes far too long for CITY OF GHOSTS to get started. Plot and character development is pushed to the second half of the novel, leaving the first half aimless. The revealed backstories aren’t enough to humanize characters who have spent the entirety of the novel telling us how women are just the worst.

Review: The Librarians and the Mother Goose Chase (The Librarians #2) by Greg Cox

THE LIBRARIANS AND THE MOTHER GOOSE CHASE, the second in The Librarians series, follows our intrepid Librarians as they fight a Mother Goose who is intent on ending the world. Sounds like pretty standard Librarian fare, yes? While it definitely fits the Librarian playbook, THE LIBRARIANS AND THE MOTHER GOOSE CHASE is entertaining, action-packed and even has a reveal at the end that I didn’t see coming.
