Review: Venom & Vanilla (The Venom Trilogy #1), by Shannon Mayer

Review: Venom & Vanilla (The Venom Trilogy #1), by Shannon Mayer

November 7, 2016 Review 0 ★★★

VENOM & VANILLA was not quite what I was expecting: I thought it would focus more on the baking and on Alena learning to fit in north of the wall. Unfortunately for her, it’s less of a country or town, and more of a ghetto where supernaturals are dumped, encouraged to stick to their own kind and policed by a clearly corrupt police force.

Review: Bloody Acquisitions (Fred, The Vampire Accountant #3) by Drew Hayes

Review: Bloody Acquisitions (Fred, The Vampire Accountant #3) by Drew Hayes

October 14, 2016 Review 4 ★★★★

BLOODY ACQUISITIONS is easily the best book in the Fred, the Vampire Accountant series. Drew Hayes’ writing has improved a lot since THE UTTERLY UNINTERESTING AND UNADVENTUROUS TALES OF FRED, THE VAMPIRE ACCOUNTANT. He’s managed to keep all of the amazing things that make the world of Fred, that Vampire Accountant so lovable, while ditching all of the bad parts. This is no longer a collection of novellas, but one story. BLOODY ACQUISITIONS still has an episodic feel to it, but it follows one story line.

Review: The Graces (The Graces #1) by Laure Eve

Review: The Graces (The Graces #1) by Laure Eve

October 13, 2016 Review 1 ★★

THE GRACES pulled me in with its intriguing description and lovely cover, but ultimately didn’t deliver. Though the writing was lovely, the plot wasn’t as good as it could have been and the ending was, to me, a complete let down.

Review: Crimson Death (Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter #25)

Review: Crimson Death (Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter #25)

October 11, 2016 Review 5 ★★★

Process nerds will find much to love and hate in the latest Anita Blake installment. While readers may tune in to solve a crime spree, that promised police procedure never materializes. Rather, CRIMSON DEATH offers an unexpected love song to therapy, to the rewards of the hard work required to maintain relationships both romantic and otherwise. For the first time in a long, long time, it is the relationship side of Anita’s story that offers progress and hope.

Review: Locke & Key, Vol. 1: Welcome to Lovecraft by Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodríguez

Review: Locke & Key, Vol. 1: Welcome to Lovecraft by Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodríguez

September 27, 2016 Review 0 ★★★★

I’m usually not that much of a graphic novel reader, however, I had lots of friends recommend Locke & Key Vol 1: Welcome to Lovecraft to me, so after much convincing I picked it up. And I’m glad I did. Locke & Key is a series I will read through to the end, and I liked it so much I’ll be getting the fancy hardcover versions for the rest of the series.

Release Day Review: Magic Binds (Kate Daniels #9) by Ilona Andrews

Release Day Review: Magic Binds (Kate Daniels #9) by Ilona Andrews

September 20, 2016 Review 0 ★★★★★

Have you ever read a book and wanted to immediately start it over again or find a way to get the next book even though it isn’t completed yet and your T.A.R.D.I.S. is always broken? That happens to me every time I finish one of the books in the Kate Daniels series. Such is the disappointment of traveling through time in a linear fashion.
