I was drawn to DEVILS & THIEVES by the unique mashup of motorcycle clubs and magic, and while I had a few issues with the book, the motorcycle and magic combo did not disappoint.

Being very familiar with (and loving) fantasy books set in England’s Regency period, I absolutely had to read MURDER, MAGIC, AND WHAT WE WORE. And luckily, I was not disappointed! This book is a fun example of this genre, and was a cute, quick read.
BLACK BIRD OF THE GALLOWS fits in a lot of YA paranormal romance cliches while somehow also managing to be very unique and totally creepy. The creative mythology really gives a lot of oomph to what could be a very flat and boring YA paranormal romance.
The only word I can think of to describe THE GENTLEMAN’S GUIDE TO VICE AND VIRTUE is that it is a romp. A delightful, amusing romp through Europe, with bits of fantasy here and there. Definitely don’t go into this one looking for a fantasy story, instead, suspend your disbelief for the alchemy tidbits and enjoy the ride.
My only complaint about SNOWSPELLED is that it is too short! Leaving me desperate for the next book in the The Harwood Spellbook series, SNOWSPELLED is an adorable romantic novella with a bit of a mystery. It’s exactly what I would have expected from the author of KAT, INCORRIGIBLE.
So here’s the deal. I actually tend to really enjoy Swoon Reads books. They’re generally light and fluffy, offer some sweet romance, and are overall fast reads. And AMID STARS AND DARKNESS lives up to that exact description. Light and fluffy, with sweet romance and definitely a fast read.
In ACCIDENTAL SIRE, Harper brings the Half Moon Hollow series back to Half Moon Hollow, and with it, brings in many favorite characters from throughout the series, with nearly everybody making at least a small cameo. I wouldn’t say that the description of the book is completely accurate, though, as it makes it sound like Ben is the focus, not even mentioning Megan, the main character of the book (the one who accidentally gets turned into a vampire).
RUINS & REVENGE picks up right where TREASURE & TREASON ended. The two together make for a satisfying duology within the Raine Benares series, offering adventure, danger and even some hints of romance. With a cast of characters that outshines the slightly repetitive nature of the storyline, RUINS & REVENGE is a perfect conclusion to Tam’s adventure.
With A KISS BEFORE DOOMSDAY, the Dru Jasper series has quickly become one of the series I’m adding to my must-buy list. With its down-to-Earth heroine and the creative situations she finds herself in, A KISS BEFORE DOOMSDAY is super enjoyable and I can’t wait to read the next in the series.
With legitimately crazy bridezillas, amusing incident reports, and a dab of romance, HEROINE WORSHIP manages to follow in the footsteps of HEROINE COMPLEX nicely. Clever and entertaining, HEROINE WORSHIP is an excellent entry in the urban fantasy genre.
