Martians Abroad has a great premise. Kids who were born and grew up on Mars coming to Earth for school. Boarding school stories are a little over done, but they can still turn out to be great. However, as I started to read Martians Abroad I realized that a lot of the problem with the story was the original premise.

A few days after finishing WYNTER’S BITE, I’m still not entirely sure how I feel about it. In the past, I’ve enjoyed the Scandals With Bite series quite a bit, but WYNTER’S BITE didn’t have the same feel as the previous books in the series, and I didn’t like it as much.
Well, THE EDGE OF EVERYTHING was nothing like what I expected it to be. There was a lot of hype surrounding this book, and I was really excited to read it. Unfortunately, it didn’t live up to my expectations of what it should have been, based on all the praise it had.
ELEVENTH GRAVE IN MOONLIGHT continues the tradition of the Charley Davidson series of being sassy and fun with an undercurrent of danger and mystery.
It doesn’t take long for FANGS & FENNEL to pick up steam. The fast-pacing of the novel promises a fight or a flee in every chapter. While it seems that everyone in FANGS & FENNEL either wants to kill or kiss her, Alena Budrene just wants to divorce her husband, keep her bakery, and be taken seriously by her friends and family.
PIT PERFECT is a delightfully cozy supernatural mystery story. I enjoyed the different turns the story took in making you question everyone’s motives at some point (except Smooshie, Lily’s adorable dog).
FOR THE BEAR’S EYES ONLY was a pretty decent paranormal romance with bear shifters which I feel are becoming the new ‘it’ shifter right now with all of the bear shifter books I’ve seen lately.
The collection of stories in SHADOWED SOULS are dark, twisted, and filled with mayhem and magic. Each of the stories had qualities I liked, some more than others.
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.
ONCE A GYPSY was an interesting paranormal romance read that suffered from a little too much going on. The setting and characters were fun, and the writing was good, but there were just a few too many bad guys.
