Review – Gemina by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

Review – Gemina by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

So going into Gemina, I didn’t know what to expect. I didn’t even know if they were going to be the same characters from the first book or not! I wanted to be totally surprised going into this (I’m actually that way with a lot of books). I was not disappointed. I absolutely loved this one! It was heartbreaking, intriguing, and left me wanting more. […]

Blog Tour Review & Giveaway – Cage of Darkness by Jennifer Anne Davis

Blog Tour Review & Giveaway – Cage of Darkness by Jennifer Anne Davis

I was fortunate enough to have Cage of Darkness in hand after finishing Cage of Deceit; otherwise that would have been quite the long wait. I hadn’t been familiar with the author until these books but I have a feeling I’ll be reading more by Davis in the future. The sequel picks up right where the first book left off and dives right into the […]

Review – Never Trust a Pirate by Valerie Bowman

Review – Never Trust a Pirate by Valerie Bowman

Give me pirates, give me spies, give me ALL the deception and romance. This wasn’t like most of the historical romances I’ve read, involving a lady who’s not all that she seems and a pirate of sorts who has quite a share of secrets himself. I liked that Danielle held her own as the leading lady. She has a lot of secrets herself that really […]

Review – Hurricane by Cherry Adair

Review – Hurricane by Cherry Adair

So far this is the second of the Cutter Cay novels that I’ve read and I have to say I enjoyed it less than the previous book, Stormchaser. Where I had issues last time around with the romance, it came up again in Hurricane between Addy and Rydell. The couple were married before disaster befell them and they divorced, but a dark turn of fate leaves Rydell in […]

Review – Given to the Sea by Mindy McGinnis

Review – Given to the Sea by Mindy McGinnis

I wanted to love Given to the Sea SO so much. I mean an all-consuming love for a book that I knew was going to be magical and original and all things right with the world. And I think my expectations were a bit too high. Let’s start with the basics: the multiple points of view. It’s common enough in fantasy, not a shocker. But when you […]

Review – Duels and Deception by Cindy Anstey

Review – Duels and Deception by Cindy Anstey

Anstey has done it again with another fun, clean romance in Duels and Deception! I absolutely loved her previous release, Love, Lies and Spies, which is also a standalone like this one because these books are just plan fun. To start, I love the writing style. The pacing is good, alternating between action and plot movement, and character development which slows it down a bit and gives […]

Review – Caraval by Stephanie Garber

Review – Caraval by Stephanie Garber

Where to start with Caraval…It was everything I expected and more. Usually when a book has so much hype I end up not liking it for that reason. But with Caraval that was not the case. It was magical, intriguing, and it took me on the ride of a lifetime. There were some issues that I noticed people talking about and will point them out […]

Blog Tour Review & Giveaway – Defy the Stars by Claudia Gray

YA sci-fi is always a tricky genre for me because I either really love it….or really don’t. But I can safely say that I loved Defy the Stars! This is exactly the kind of space adventure I never knew I needed but couldn’t get enough of! Noemi is a soldier from the planet Genesis, seventeen and ready to give her life to provide Genesis with a little […]

Review – My One True Highlander by Suzanne Enoch

Review – My One True Highlander by Suzanne Enoch

I have mixed feelings about this book. My One True Highlander follows the tale of Lady Marjorie, who is kidnapped by young highlanders and ends up in the hosue of Graeme and his brothers who doesn’t know what to make of an English woman living with him against her will. On the surface, the story had plenty of tension and opportunity for action but, for me, […]
