Scarlet by Marissa Meyer

Scarlet by Marissa Meyer

Ah, Marissa Meyer has done it again! Cinder was one of my Top 10 Reads of 2012, so of course I anxiously awaited the sequel. I did get a little worried though, as information about Scarlet started hitting the web saying a character based on Red Riding Hood was going to be a focus. So […]

Sunday Post #31 (3/31/13)

The Sunday Post is hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer. What the heck, man? March is over already! I do like the numbers for today though: 3/31/13. I like the UK version better: 31/3/13 since I have a fondness for palindromes. And then this in my 31st Sunday Post. Sorry, I have a thing […]

The Collector by Victoria Scott

The Collector by Victoria Scott

  Oh, Dante Walker. You delicious demon, you! I have to admit, I was worried the hype over this guy was too much. You know what? He’s worth it. The Collector sucked me in right from the start and kept me hooked the whole way through. Dante is Satan’s right hand man. He’s one of […]

The Dead and Buried by Kim Harrington

The Dead and Buried by Kim Harrington

Gimmie more ghosts! I love ghost stories, but it’s a subject in books that seems to always be a gamble for me. Thankfully, The Dead and Buried turned out to be a good gamble. Though it was a bit predictable, it was still a fairly solid story that I enjoyed. Moving to a new town […]

Pretty When They Collide by Rhiannon Frater

Pretty When They Collide by Rhiannon Frater

  I’m such a fan of the Pretty When She Dies series by the super talented Rhiannon Frater, so hell yeah I was excited to read this novella about Cass and Aimee. Pretty When They Collide is technically a prequel, because the events take place prior to the first book. However, the characters do not […]

Mercy, A Gargoyle Story by Misty Provencher

Mercy, A Gargoyle Story by Misty Provencher

I’ll be honest, this book is tough to write about. It’s nothing bad against the book, at all. In fact, it’s the opposite. Mercy is not a light, fluffy read. It’s dark, gritty, and I’m sure disturbing for some. Thankfully, I love all those things. But not only that, it’s also gut-wrenchingly beautiful. It’s definitely […]
