The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones | Movie Review

The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones | Movie Review

MY THOUGHTS Warning: This review may contain spoilers It has been a couple of weeks since I saw the movie version of City of Bones and despite what others have said, I found it very underwhelming.  True, I never expected the whole movie to follow the book scene by scene but come on!  It was definitely NOT the City of Bones that I read prior to the movie.  To quote the […]

City of Bones by Cassandra Clare | Book Review

City of Bones by Cassandra Clare | Book Review

I started reading this book because I knew I wanted to read it before seeing the movie (and I did the right thing!  More about the movie in different post). This book was a slow start for me.  In fact, I had to force myself to finish reading it in time for the movie.  It wasn’t that I did not enjoy it, I did but the first few chapters did […]

Love, Technically by Lynne Silver | Book Review + Giveaway

Love, Technically by Lynne Silver | Book Review + Giveaway

This was a very quick and refreshing read for me.  I actually enjoyed the story despite thinking the female protagonist to be a bit dense but I guess, the author had to use someone who wasn’t as tech savvy as the male protagonist.  Despite that issue, I enjoyed it and read it in just one sitting. Noah Frellish, Billionaire CEO, helps Michelle Kolson one night while she was working late. […]

Sin Anthology by Jess Michaels | Book Review

Sin Anthology by Jess Michaels | Book Review

I’ll start with reviewing my favorite story of the three novellas, The Sweetest Sin.  I absolutely adore the two protagonists Landon and Julianna who were eloped five years ago.  It should have been a happy ending but their marriage was annulled when Julianna’s father, Lord Trevington, caught up to them and forced her to marry the Duke of Breckinhill.  The story however, starts when five years later, Julianna, now a […]
