This is one of those books where you hear so much good buzz about it you have to read it. But since I am a blogger with copious amounts of review books to read, I never really get to read for pleasure. So this delight was pushed to the back...

Crystal Fire by Jordan Dane

I received an e-copy of this book from the blog tour host in exchange for participation in the tour and an honest review. To be fair, I may have decided to read this book mainly on cover appeal. I saw the wispy fire-like cover and was intrigued...

Pretty Dark Nothing by Heather L. Reid

I received an e-copy from the publishers at NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I was intrigued by how dark and spooky the cover portrayed the book to be. It seemed like it would be more horror than anything else. The premise even gave the same...

Shadows by Jennifer L. Armentrout

I read this book at the second most perfect time one could. Of course, the obvious best time is at the very beginning before diving into the other books of the series. I knew it was about Daemon's brother and I honestly didn't see Dawson playing more of a roll...
