Stunning Sequel.

This book ripped my heart out in that-this is an amazing second book-kind of way. (Here's hoping the final book stitches it back together again.) Marie's writing is stunningly beautiful and this story she's created; the characters, the world-building, the plot, is nothing short of perfection. PERFECTION!...

Imaginative and Entertaining

Story: 4.5 Stars I'm often skeptical of re-tellings, but this one was done in such an imaginative way that I was immediately invested in the characters and the outcome of the story. Stacey Jay gives us just enough of the traditional Sleeping Beauty tale (Disney's version at...

Wicked Start To A NA Paranormal Series.

Jennifer L. Armentrout never fails to surprise me. First aliens, then demigods, followed by gargoyles, and now Fae. IS THERE ANY PARANORMAL CREATURE SHE CAN'T MAKE ME LOVE?! Probably not. Except maybe---owls. I don't think even she could change my mind about owls....

AUDIOBOOK REVIEW

Audio: 4.5 Stars I've been on an audiobook binge this year and I'm happy to say, this one (along with it's sequel, Crown of Midnight) is one of the best on the market. Everyone involved makes this an entertaining experience, especially Elizabeth Evans, who does a fantastic job of...

AUDIOBOOK REVIEW

Audio: 4.5 Stars As I said before, this is one of the best on the market and Elizabeth Evans continues to give each character their own distinct "voice". Story: 4 Stars I get it now. The hype, the fandom, the feels, I GET IT!...

This is an intense story of love, family, romance, and betrayal.

The Audio: The narrator is a bit slow at times and I wasn't crazy about the voice she lends to Bishop, however, she does get better the farther you listen. The Story: My initial thoughts upon finishing The Book of Ivy was, WHO DO I HAVE...

Not Quite The Story I Was Expecting

A HUGE thank you to Penguin for sending me a copy of this book! I was SO excited and SO surprised when this showed up on my doorstep the other day. (There may have been a lot of screaming.) I went into THE INFINITE SEA...

A real page turner.

What I liked: the cover, the action, suspense and pacing. I never got bored, and with all of the survival information, I felt like I was freezing my cupcakes off right along with Britt and Mason! I have the annoying habit of figuring out...

The line for Drill starts behind me.

What I LOVED: Drill. The end. (Okay, so not really.) Rites of Passage is an empowering story, one that female AND male readers alike will appreciate and enjoy. (My 14 year old son read it and LOVED it!) Well-written, fast paced and action packed, once I...

Engaging Debut.

The pretty cover is what initially drew me to this book, but it was the poetic writing and flawed characters that kept me reading. The Buchanans reminded me a lot of the Kennedys, and it was easy to see how quickly Charlotte could become so enamoured with them, but it's...

What I Loved: The cover is what caught my attention first, but the intense, darkly romantic thrill ride I embarked upon is what kept me reading long into the night, and I loved every minute of it! The characters are colorful and unique, but what...

Taking risks, learning to love again and finding yourself in the process.

I had the privilege of reading a very early version of this, something I'm still smiling about! One of the reasons I enjoy Miranda Kenneally's books so much is because of her writing style, it's clean, crisp and easy to follow. The other is because she gives us characters who...

Love, Romance and Swoon.

For those who enjoy love, swoon, and more toned down smexy times in their New Adult, these are the books for you! While they are companion novels, both Never Again and Once Again can be read as stand alones without any loss of storyline. Once Again is...
