Review – Reign the Earth by A.C. Gaughen

If Reign the Earth is any indication of what’s to come this year in YA fantasy, then everyone needs to start saving up because we’re going to all be broke real soon. I started this book, made it 100 pages in and was forced to stop because I had to get some work done. . . well, I should have stopped but the […]

Mini Review – Adulthood Is a Myth by Sarah Andersen

I contemplated whether I even wanted to review this book or not. I was sitting at work at the library and someone had returned Adulthood Is a Myth so it was staring me down from the cart in the back area. I picked it up, read through the first comic, and KNEW I had to read the rest.  I’m not sure […]

Review – When the Stars Come Out by Laura Trentham

Although 5th in the Cottonbloom series, When the Stars Come Out follows the sub-arc about the Abbot brothers, picking up after Leave the Night On. I wouldn’t say you need to read the first 3 books in the series to pick this one up but may want to pick up the fourth as it features one of the brothers, Wyatt, and his relationship […]

Review – The Hazel Wood by Melissa Albert

So. The Hazel Wood. This is a book that, if I passed it in the bookstore I’d immediately pick it up for that cover alone. And then I’d read the synopsis and be hooked. Then I’d read the book and be horribly disappointed.  I’m not sure what ruined the book for me — my own expectations or the hype (which just […]

Review – Beyond Scandal and Desire by Lorraine Heath

I was hesitant going into this book. There were elements of the synopsis that caught my eye, such as the fact that the leading gentleman, Mick, isn’t nobility in full and therefore his place in the world is not the prim and proper London ton which is usually the case. There’s also the fact that the heroine, Lady Aslyn, is also a bit […]

Review – Runebinder by Alex R. Kahler

I almost DNFed Runebinder. I wanted to love it because it’s diverse. It’s YA. It’s fantasy. I mean, you can’t lose, right? Heh. About that. . . So this book’s major problem right off the bat for me was the fact that I had no idea what was going on. For starters, I thought this was a fantasy (as in, a […]

Review – The Trouble with True Love by Laura Lee Guhrke

Lady Truelove is back in book 2 of the Dear Lady Truelove series! Last time around, a newspaper editor found love with a duke, and I debated whether it was worth reading the sequel due to a number of issues. I’m happy to say that The Trouble with True Love was an improvement on the series, featuring a heroine whose confidence grows […]
