*spoiler-free* I didn’t dig the sequel to Tempest Rising NEARLY as much as its predecessor.

~Tempest, Tempest, Tempest *clucks tongue*~ If you have or will read my review of Tempest Rising, I used to find Tempest a real treat, as I could appreciate her sarcasm, bitterness, and her love of family. Uncertainties are bound to linger after the events of Tempest Rising,...

DNF Explanation

Bottom line Even Kraven and all his smart ass remarks were not enough to keep me from throwing down the white flag and metaphorically shutting this e-ARC. What’s worse, I had such high hopes, such is the way with all brand new paranormal romance releases. ...

YOUR EYES ARE NOT LYING TO YOU. This review is REALLY HAPPENING.

~Kat, Dee, and Daemon are back!~ By the end of Obsidian, things are far from resolved and yet Armentrout gives it a clean break that doesn’t make the book feel half-baked or unfinished. Set after the events of the first book, though not directly after, feelings of...

I didn’t like The Last Echo by Kimberly Derting more than The Body Finder, but it was close...

~The scariest psychopath yet~ One of the most twistedly thrilling aspects of Derting’s series is the sick avenues introduced to Violet because of her gift. She’s witnessed some gruesome things, and as her ability allows her to find the murdered dead, you can only imagine what sorts...

I don’t think I’ve laughed quite so much in one sitting!

A huge disappointment!

~I was so excited for THIS book~ I don’t very often read books related to military service. It’s just one of those things, the unexplainable things that YOU WISH YOU COULD explain to other people. While He Was Away by Karen Schreck, however, is one of those...

I had so many smiles planted on my face because of this awesome story!

~Welcome, Chloe, to my Fave FMCs List~ I haven’t gotten around to creating my long and very telling FMCs, or female main characters, Favorites List, but best believe Chloe has secured a shimmering spot on the higher end of that list. It could be her ridiculous joke-cracking,...

I didn’t necessarily enjoy the sequel more than its predecessor... *NO SPOILERS*

~It’s like a freaking maze up in here~ Angelini’s gift really lies in the mythology she twists up to create this ginormous plot arc. The combination of classic Greek literature as the characters’ true history and the gods and goddesses that come into play make this story...

My dream book come to life!

Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo is pretty much my dream book. Cultivated from the richness of the Russian language, and perhaps customs—though I’m not certain, this fantasy brings me joy beyond imagining. Leigh Bardugo is the map that leads us to the treasure trove, as each word is spun...
