Review – Breath of Fire by Amanda Bouchet

Well then. Cat’s back in the second installment of the Kingmaker Chronicles and the stakes are higher than ever. A Promise of Fire saw her fighting against her past and falling for the alpha male Griffin who kidnapped her (that’s a whole other conversation). But in order for them to have a peaceful future and achieve Griffin’s vision of a united […]

Review – Reality No-Show by Kiersten White

You know, I was FINALLY getting used to this story and the style in which it’s told. But clearly that was the best time to throw everyone for a loop and bring in NEW characters because obviously there weren’t enough. I both liked and disliked this episode. For starters, it’s focusing on these new people but the story didn’t seem […]

Mini Review – The Blazing Star by Imani Josey

Time travel is tricky. Generally, I’m not a fan of it because it tends to be used as an excuse to explain a new fantastical world to the protagonist. Lots of info dumps and whatnot. But I had hopes for The Blazing Star with the promise of Ancient Egypt as a setting. Unfortunately, while the story had potential to be great, it […]

Review – Crystal Storm by Morgan Rhodes

I don’t often read the Acknowledgements at the ends of books. It’s just something I’ve never really done. But I read this one and I’m glad Morgan Rhodes apologized to her readers because OH. MY. GOODNESS. THAT ENDING. But maybe I should start back at the beginning. We’re on book 5 of the Falling Kingdoms series and lately with young adult fiction, […]

Review – Wicked, My Love by Susanna Ives

In the second installment of Susanna Ives’ Wicked Little Secrets series, we meet the cool, calculating Isabella and her business partner and childhood “enemy” Randall. This is one of those romances that takes on the enemies-to-lovers tropes, which also happens to be one of my favorites, so I was excited for Wicked, My Love since I really enjoyed the last book […]

Review – The Female of the Species by Mindy McGinnis

I’ve always found my best reviews tend to be the ones written while still in the emotional thrall of a book. For a book like The Female of the Species, I think this is especially important. Before I go on, I want to mention that this book contains a lot of commentary on rape and rape culture, as well as scenes […]

Review – A Spring Deception by Jess Michaels

Celia Fitzgilbert is back in A Spring Deception, the second installment in the Seasons series. While the first book, An Affair in Winter, focused on her engagement and her sister, Rosalinde’s romance, this time around is for Celia and her happily ever after. I’m glad I stopped after the first chapter and went to read the first book in the series, An Affair […]

Review – Umta by Matthew Cody

Finally! Umta has been a character of pure mystery since the first episode and now in episode 5, we finally get her perspective and a little more information. It’s safe to say that I’ve been waiting for her backstory for a while now and hope that this is the turning point of the ReMade serial. I think this episode is […]
