Review – 27 Hours by Tristina Wright

I struggled to write this review, probably more than I have in a while for a book. Part of this is because I’ve seen backlash on lower rated reviews for 27 Hours and there are SO MANY higher ratings that I thought that I was crazy for not enjoying this one as much as other readers have. And before I say anything more I want to add […]

Review – The Innocence Treatment by Ari Goelman

Review – The Innocence Treatment by Ari Goelman

What do you do when you believe everything you’re told? It’s crazy, hearing that. Sounds like fiction. Which, in this case, it is though I know a few people out there that fit the description too… In Lauren’s case, it’s extreme and the surgery she has makes her truly see the truth. It’s not pretty. I wasn’t really sure about The Innocence Treatment. I know my […]

Review – Ally by Anna Banks

Review – Ally by Anna Banks

I had my doubts about reading this book after Nemesis just wasn’t a great read for me, and honestly I probably should have listened to them. Ally continues the story set forth in the first book, now with tensions high between Sepora and Tarik as they try to do best by their people and their hearts. And I honestly couldn’t care about any of it. For starters, it […]

Review – The Fire Queen by Emily R. King

Review – The Fire Queen by Emily R. King

Y’all may remember how much I enjoyed The Hundredth Queen earlier this year. So it goes without saying that I had some fairly high expectations for The Fire Queen but my overall impression was. . . well, frankly it was average. I wouldn’t say this book suffered from Sequel Syndrome exactly but it didn’t suck me in like the first one. A lot happened but I didn’t […]

Review – An Enchantment of Ravens by Margaret Rogerson

Review – An Enchantment of Ravens by Margaret Rogerson

I NEED ANOTHER BOOK. It feels like it’s been ages since I read a faerie book, and a good one at that. Though I’m sure I’ve read some since then, the only ones that come to mind are Holly Black’s Tithe/Modern Faerie Tales series and Melissa Marr’s Wicked Lovely series (both of which are some of my favorite books in general). I am absolutely adding An Enchantment of Ravens to that […]

Review – Hunting Prince Dracula by Kerri Maniscalco

Review – Hunting Prince Dracula by Kerri Maniscalco

Once again Maniscalco slays with a fabulously haunting read. Set against a backdrop of superstition and myth, Hunting Prince Dracula makes even vampires seem real as Dracula rises from the grave to terrorize the people of Romania. I don’t think I can say anything bad about this book. Last year, I gave Stalking Jack the Ripper a go despite it falling outside my usual genres of choice, and […]
