Blog Tour Review – Freeks by Amanda Hocking

If I had to describe this book is one word, it would be disappointing. Not bad, not great, just… nothing like what I expected or hoped for. This isn’t my first time reading Hocking’s work. I enjoyed her Trylle books when I was younger (and maybe that was why, I’m not sure as it’s been a while) but all the circus/carnival-y […]

Review – Thunder Moon by Joanne Mallory

I did not realize how short this book was until I started reading. Like novella length, so don’t do what I did and go in expecting a full-length novel… which I think was the problem. Thunder Moon NEEDED to be a full length novel to accommodate all that was going on. This sounds like it’s going to be a paranormal romance/urban fantasy type book, […]

Mini Review – Mourning Train by Carrie Harris

The ReMade serial begins a new twist as all the character lines are in one place. I was excited to see that we weren’t getting YET ANOTHER new character, but returning to Nevaeh. This would have been all well and good if the story didn’t rehash everything we learned about her in a previous episode. It felt like a filler before the […]

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, […]
