A message we all need

Every time I pick up one of Elizabeth Eulberg's books I don't think it can be better than her last one. She continues to prove me wrong. Revenge of the Girl with the Great Personality blew me away. I honestly don't even know where to start with...

Even better than Defiance!

Deception by C.J. Redwine is the sequel to Defiance. (I gushed about my love for Defiance here.) We all know that sometimes the second book in a trilogy can be disappointing. It's like that awkward stage we all go through, a necessity but not all that much fun. Thankfully, Deception...

Mythology, sarcasm, and adventure, oh my!

I've been a fan of Kiersten's from the day Paranormalcy was published. I thoroughly enjoyed that series. I was intrigued (and a little freaked out) by Mind Games. Which reminds me... I need that sequel soon!! But this book, this is Kiersten's best book so far!! ...

Absolute genius!!!

On several occasions I have declared my love and adoration for Hourglass by Myra McEntire. More than once I offered to sell my soul for an ARC of the sequel to Hourglass, Timepiece. Luckily I did not have to actually sell my soul to get my hands on a copy....

One choice, an eternity to pay for it

I've been hearing buzz about Everneath for a while so when my friend offered to let me borrow her ARC I jumped at the chance. I'm not sure what I was expecting going into the book but it certainly wasn't what I thought it was going to be. ...

Not just another werewolf book

I was leery about reading another wolf book but the Guardians are completely different than any other wolves I've read about. I loved everything about this book! The setting, the characters, the tension (oh the tension!!!), the history- I loved it all!! I'm dying to get my hands on Wolfsbane...

What a ride! The perfect conclusion to this amazing trilogy!

There are certain books that I clear my schedule for. Books that I make sure I have nothing planned the day they come out so that I can devote my time to reading. Bloodrose by Andrea Cremer was one of those books. Last Tuesday night I came straight home from...
