Now this may not have been a paranormal romance, but it was still full of paranormal goodness...

I am slightly disappointed that there isn’t a romance to root for, but it’s not a total letdown… *sigh* This book is more than just who the main character is going to hook up with. Silence by Michelle Sagara is sad and confusing and fascinating. Emma Hall is far from...

Torn may have been a lovely improvement in the series, but it's got nothing on Ascend.

Have you noticed that most paranormal romances have something to do with a war? And that sends me into book lovers heaven! It's why I adore paranormal romance books so much, and the fact that Ascend by Amanda Hocking has dilemmas which transcend the mostly political war that has been...

The fight has come, down to every last man, woman, and child, and no one is safe.

I've gone from hating this series at points, loving it at others, but it wasn't until I actually had to twiddle my thumbs in a show of helpless waiting for this final showdown that I realized I'm terminally in love with this series. Despite our differences, our ups and downs,...

Sure, it’s all about boating and family, romance, but it’s got so much more going on.

I know a ton of people have been mentioning that this a book about cheating. And it is, but that’s not so much what I concentrated on. I was saddened by Clementine’s anguish over her past mistakes. Unbreak My Heart by Melissa Walker flips the coin and shows us what...

Smart, funny, real.

REALLY? AGAIN… OR MAYBE NOT. How many times have we heard this oh-so-tragic tale of starcrossed lovers? Not just in Shakespeare but in EVERYTHING. But, okay, especially Shakespeare. Romeo and Juliet never struck as me as romantic, but certainly tragic. And everytime this story gets retold, I’m...

Spirals into the disappointing with it’s unbelievable heroine, even more unbelievable romance!

THAT COVER. WHAT'S THAT ALL ABOUT, HUH? The Last Princess by Galaxy Craze has a heart-stopping cover, with gorgeous colors and a straight-up mesmerizing depiction of the futuristic—and I want to say post-apocalyptic—London known to Eliza. Buildings have been shaken to the very foundation, crops are no...

Has all of the telltale awesomeness of Cashore’s writing—scenic, descriptive, and downright vivid!

I obviously genuinely enjoyed Graceling by Kristin Cashore; I understood why everyone was so in love, even if that particularly intense emotion never paid me a visit while reading Cashore’s first novel. But the potential is like fire—haha—in that you can’t ignore something so violent and vivid, especially when it’s...

This book is seriously funny!

IS THIS ABOUT MERMAIDS OR NOT? Yes and no. Of Poseidon by Anna Banks technically features these mermaid-like creatures. But, if you don’t want to get your head bitten off by Galen, or the average Syrena—I don’t care if they don’t actually do that; it’s an insult—you’d...
