Nil by Lynne Matson

Nil by Lynne Matson

When I first saw Nil, I was on the fence about it. Then when I saw it described on the author’s Goodreads page as a “YA thriller with a SF twist”, I got a lot more excited. Unfortunately, it didn’t quite hold up to what I thought I was getting. Nil starts out with Charley, […]

Must Love Otters by Eliza Gordon

Must Love Otters by Eliza Gordon

When I first saw Must Love Otters, I thought it sounded adorable. Oh my gosh, it was perfect! I got a lot more than I expected, and it turned into one of my favorite reads of 2013. Hollie works as a 911 operator and can’t stand it. Her boyfriend is … well, he’s something else. […]

Raw by Bella Aurora

Raw by Bella Aurora

“Not everyone can be a fairy-tale hero.” “The world needs villains too.” Okay, so I was initially curious about Raw when I saw someone express their dislike of it. Hey, you never know. Then when I read the blurb for the book, I snagged it up. I was in a dark mood, so I felt […]

The Undead Pool by Kim Harrison

The Undead Pool by Kim Harrison

Oh, how far we’ve come! I can’t believe I’ve been reading this series for almost ten years, and that there will only be one book left after this one. I admit, I get a little weepy and nostalgic when I look at the cover of The Undead Pool. It coveys so much, especially how much […]

Southbound Surrender by Raen Smith

Southbound Surrender by Raen Smith

Not even gonna lie, I picked Southbound Surrender because of the cover. I love the softness and coloring of it, but I think it was those jean shorts that sealed it for me. Haha, that sounds so bad, but it’s true. It wasn’t in a pervy way, it’s just that I’m drawn more to characters […]

Perfect Lies by Kiersten White

Perfect Lies by Kiersten White

Oh, how I loved this book! I completely fell in love with the characters and writing in Mind Games, so I was absolutely ecstatic to read Perfect Lies. I enjoyed the first book a little more, but this one totally held its own. I can’t even tell you how much I love the writing style […]

Sunday Post #67 (2/16/14)

The Sunday Post is hosted by Kimba Caffeinated Book Reviewer. Well the weather went back to warm and sunny. Today it’s 75º, which is not normal. I love it, though. But then I feel a bit guilty for being happy with it because the drought here is really bad. Farmers aren’t even able to put […]

Evertrue by Brodi Ashton

Evertrue by Brodi Ashton

It’s over … it’s actually over. The Everneath series has come to an end. This series has been a big bundle of emotions for me. Everneath and Everbound ripped my heart out, and I loved it! So I was expecting Evertrue to take me on another ride aboard the emotional rollercoaster. Hell, I was looking […]
