Tempest by Julie Cross

Tempest by Julie Cross

Love. Time travel!  Love it!  I enjoy the complexity of it, and that you can basically make up your own rules for it.  However, I’m so picky about the story making sense, and making sure there are no inconsistencies.  The author did a pretty good job at making everything mesh, and took an interesting route […]

Unraveling Isobel by Eileen Cook

Unraveling Isobel by Eileen Cook

Loved this book! It’s funny, cute, and creepy; how could this not be a fun book? Unraveling Isobel was one of those books that I almost didn’t read, but changed my mind at the last minute.  Then it ended up keeping me awake until 1:30am doing the must-read-just-one-more-chapter thing. Poor Isobel had to leave her […]

The Demon Lover by Juliet Dark

The Demon Lover by Juliet Dark

Confession time!  For some unknown reason, when I started reading The Demon Lover, I thought it was more of a young adult book.  Jokes on me!  While I read the very beginning, I kept thinking to myself how there was no way I’d feel comfortable giving the book to a 15 or 16-year-old (even though […]

Switched by Amanda Hocking

Switched by Amanda Hocking

There is something so addicting about a Hocking book!  I first read the Trylle trilogy about a year ago, and devoured them.  So I was ecstatic when it was announced that the trilogy was going to be published by St. Martin’s Griffin.  When I received a copy with the new cover, I actually had to […]

Every Other Day by Jennifer Lynn Barnes

Every Other Day by Jennifer Lynn Barnes

Well, this was different.  Every Other Day is about a teenage girl who is normal one day, and then a predatory demon-hunter the next, alternating every 24 hours.  Wait, this actually sounds like a regular teenager.  Ha.  Hey, teenagers can be scary moody.  Seriously though, the idea is interesting – having amazing healing powers, super […]

With Good Behavior by Jennifer Lane

With Good Behavior by Jennifer Lane

You want drama?  Well here it is.  With Good Behavior has it all – blackmail, physical and emotional abuse, betrayal, murder, romance, redemption, sexy time, and humor.  I was excited to read this book because of the psychology and Navy connection, and it definitely incorporated both into the story, plus a lot more. Also, there […]

Sweet Dreams by Aaron Patterson

Sweet Dreams by Aaron Patterson

Bravo, Mr. Patterson.  Bra-vo.  I pride myself on being able to predict a storyline early on in a book, and now I have to admit that you got me.  I was so not expecting what went on in Sweet Dreams.  Wait, let me rephrase that… I thought I knew what to expect, but I was […]

The Pledge by Kimberly Derting

The Pledge by Kimberly Derting

I’m going to admit it!  I was afraid that I might not like The Pledge, so I became Ms. Procrastination when it came to reading it. Now, I can honestly say that I had nothing to be afraid of – I actually really liked it.  I wasn’t quite sure about the whole language thing at […]

Hollowmen by Amanda Hocking

Hollowmen by Amanda Hocking

I can’t even tell you how much I love this series!  I read Hollowland back in March, and ever since then, I stalked Amanda’s blog like crazy.  There are only a handful of author’s I keep major tabs on, and she is one of them.  I was beyond stoked when Hollowmen went up on Amazon!  […]

Blood Brothers by Nora Roberts

Blood Brothers by Nora Roberts

I’ve had this book since it was first released a few years ago.  Somehow, it and a couple of other books were stored away, still in the never opened Amazon box.  I found them a couple weeks ago and they’re just like new.  I’m so glad I found it, because I probably wouldn’t have sought […]
