This Totally Surprised Me! Jackaby by William Ritter Audiobook Review

  Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. Hello, Paranormal! I absolutely enjoyed this book so much and I can’t believe I waited a couple of years before I read this book! I mean, it has been on my TBR pile for the longest time! I also have a physical copy of this book but I decided to go for the audiobook version, which I DO NOT regret at all! I mean, picture Sherlock Holmes in America during the late 1800s with a touch of the paranormal! And of course, I LOVE a […]

Skinny Reviews: That Time I Read Paranormal

Skinny Reviews: That Time I Read Paranormal

Click book title to jump to the review: My Life as a White Trash Zombie | Moon Called I haven’t read a lot of paranormal books in a while. I mean, I absolutely love a good vampire book (I absolutely love the Night Huntress series), but I haven’t really ventured into the other paranormal staples like zombies and werewolves. Sure, I love watching movies and TV shows featuring these creatures, but it is not something that I actually love to read. I have been reading a lot of historical romances lately and I picked paranormal to genre cleanse. I bought My Life as a White Trash […]

The heroine stole the show! From Duke Till Dawn by Eva Leigh | Book Review + GIveaway

The heroine stole the show! From Duke Till Dawn by Eva Leigh | Book Review + GIveaway

I received this book for free from the Publisher via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.   Don’t want to read the excerpt?  Click to jump to the Review? London, England 1817 A woman laughed, and Alexander Lewis, Duke of Greyland felt the sound like a gunshot to his chest. It was a very pleasant laugh, low and musical rather than shrill and forced, yet it sounded like The Lost Queen’s laugh. Alex could not resist the urge to glance over his shoulder as […]

All that’s Missing is an EPIC Space Battle! Defy the Stars by Claudia Gray Audiobook Review

  Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. I have no reason why I love reading about artificial intelligence and this book HAS one! Think YA Star Wars! Sure, the start was a little slow, but the story picked up speed as I got immersed into the world. Defy the Stars is about two unlikely heroes, an android named Abel and a teen soldier named Noemi. Noemi inadvertently rescues Abel from his prison where he has been stuck in for about thirty years. These two become allies as they try to stop an […]

Romance and Epic Fantasy in one Amazing Book! The Winter King by C. L. Wilson Audiobook Review

Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. It’s been a while since I wrote a review and I feel that I have become a bit rusty! Anyway, I will try to get my groove back and review away. The Winter King by C. L. Wilson blew me away from the first chapter! It had absolutely EVERYTHING that I love in a fantasy AND a romance book. Kick-ass female? CHECK Broody alpha male? CHECK CHECK Magic and power? CHECK CHECK CHECK Obviously, I am a little late in this book and I absolutely regret not picking this […]

I was brought to tears by the Bedchamber Games by Tracy Anne Warren | Book Review

I was brought to tears by the Bedchamber Games by Tracy Anne Warren | Book Review

I received this book for free from the Publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.   Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. This series was unmemorable for me TBH. I read the first book, The Bedding Proposal and I even rated it a 4/5, but for the life me, I just can’t remember the plot! I guess, this calls for a re-read! I also put the second book, Happily Bedded Bliss, on hold and I’m not really […]

OMG THE FEELS! Devil in Spring by Lisa Kleypas Audiobook Review

OMG THE FEELS! Devil in Spring by Lisa Kleypas Audiobook Review

  Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. Devil in Spring was absolutely DELIGHTFUL! Actually, I was a little bit worried about this book because although Pandora was very interesting in Cold-Hearted Rake and Marrying Winterborne, she tended to become very irritating, which really frustrated me. A LOT. Finding out who the hero for this book was, BLEW me away! I actually re-read Devil in Winter last year because I was so excited! As many know, Sebastian St. Vincent is one of Lisa Kleypas’ favorite and beloved heroes. I can see why. But I don’t agree. […]

Flipping Pages: Lions & Lace by Meagan McKinney Audiobook Review

Flipping Pages: Lions & Lace by Meagan McKinney Audiobook Review

Reviews of Books Written Before Year 2000. Lions and Lace is perhaps one of my favorite historical romance books of all time. Yes, I said it. ALL TIME! Heck, I carted this thing from the Philippines to the US the very first time I moved here, which was waaaay back in 2005. My copy is also pretty well loved that the front cover actually came off! I also remember purchasing my very first copy of this book from a used bookstore which explains why it was super battered. Don’t worry, I actually bought another copy now. Thank you, Amazon! Lions and […]
