Review: Sublime by Christina Lauren

Review: Sublime by Christina Lauren

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.

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.


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.

Once you get past the terrible Photoshopped aspects of the cover, the pages of CHAINED BY NIGHT hold an acceptable addition to the MoonBound Clan Vampires series. While I wouldn’t say I liked it more than BOUND BY NIGHT, it definitely tied up the cliffhanger from the first book’s epilogue, plus it gave the reader plenty of action and serious chemistry between the main characters.

GHOST LAYER had potential as it had a really interesting premise with the main character, Clare coming into her ghost seer powers which from what we see of them sound pretty darn awesome. The problem I had was that the actual story was confusing and just didn’t hold my attention enough for me to get really invested in the characters.


Review: Wanted: Wild Thing (Midnight Liaisons, #4) by Jessica Sims

Review: Wanted: Wild Thing (Midnight Liaisons, #4) by Jessica Sims

September 22, 2014 Review 0 ★★★

WANTED: WILD THING was a sweet ending to a fun series about a paranormal dating agency. While I wasn’t as thrilled by this one as I was for the previous books it still had its charm and amusing quirky character moments that I’ve come to enjoy in the Midnight Laisions series. Where the previous book featured mostly shifters and vampires WANTED: WILD THING put a bit more emphasis on fairies


Review: Haunted (Bishop/Special Crimes Unit #15) by Kay Hooper

September 18, 2014 Review 0 ★★★

Though I had misgivings entering the Bishop/ Special Crimes Unit series with number fifteen, I found HAUNTED to be easy to pick up and follow. Some of the aspects that made HAUNTED accessible were positive , while others ultimately proved to be a narrative shortcoming.


Review: Voices from Beyond (Ghost Finders, #5) by Simon R. Green

Review: Voices from Beyond (Ghost Finders, #5) by Simon R. Green

September 15, 2014 Review 0 ★★★

Simon R. Green’s stories tend to have a dark twisted humor to them that makes the horror of what is happening manageable. VOICES FROM BEYOND definitely is classic Simon R. Green with the difference being that these protagonists have slightly less super powers than his other books. I liked that as it made the story feel more intense and their victory even more earned.



Review: Red Blooded (Jessica McClain #4) by Amanda Carlson

Review: Red Blooded (Jessica McClain #4) by Amanda Carlson

September 11, 2014 Review 2 ★★★

RED BLOODED is an unsurprising addition to the Jessica McClain series. By that I mean it follows Jessica’s mishaps and constant fight for survival in a fast-paced ride through the book. Though the setting is imaginative and different, and we learn more about Jessica’s history and the prophecy that everybody in the supernatural world is concerned about, which is rewarding, RED BLOODED lacks the interplay between Jessica and the more well-known characters, such as Rourke or Ray, which is disappointing.
