Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire

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...

Skulk by Rosie Best

A copy of this book was provided by the publishers in exchange for an honest review. I have developed a tendency to request practically every book that is offered to me by the publicity department of Strange Chemistry. I have yet to find a book published by...

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...

Opal by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Oh my goodness. How I have waiting to dig into this book. I requested it not long after I finished Onyx and have been waiting patiently for the library to fill my request so I could find out what happened with Katy and Daemon. As I also read Shadows around...

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...

Half-Blood by Jennifer L. Armentrout

I borrowed a copy of Half-Blood from my local library. I have read a couple of Jennifer L. Armentrout's books (mostly from her Lux series) and I loved them. I wanted to see how her other famous series mounted up against my favorite series. The story starts very similarly to...

Towering by Alex Flinn

I am sure everyone has seen the movie Beastly, but I am also sure that many people do not know about the book that started the movie. That book was written by the same author of this book, Alex Flinn. Alex clearly has a wide imagination and her fairytale retellings...
