If you love your fairy tales hot, read In a Stranger’s Bed by Sophie Jordan | Book Review

I received this book for free from the author in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. This is a review for the Sophie Jordan novella, In a Stranger’s Bed, and not all the novellas in this book.   Holy hotness, people! I was super shocked with In a Stranger’s Bed! I knew this was going to be sexy but I DID NOT expect it to be THAT sexy! And I mean this in a good way! So, In a Stranger’s Bed is a retelling of Goldilocks and the Three […]

When the Beast Remains A Beast For All Time   A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas    Book Review

When the Beast Remains A Beast For All Time A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas Book Review

Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. I’m finally taking the time to review ACoTaR!  I mean, it’s been a few weeks since I finished reading this book and I’m still left speechless.  Because the LAST FEW CHAPTERS!  OMG! OMG?!  What do you mean OMG?! Well, just what I said.  The last few chapters of ACoTaR decimated me.  In a good way and a bad way.  ACoTaR was a pretty slow start for me.  I guess it was because SJ Maas was setting up the whole world. Oh?  So back up.  What is this […]

The Forbidden Wish by Jessica Khoury | Audiobook Review

The Forbidden Wish by Jessica Khoury | Audiobook Review

Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. When I picked up The Forbidden Wish on Audible, I didn’t really know what to expect.  Sure, I have heard GREAT things about this book on the blogosphere, but I really try not to get carried away by the hype.  I was WONDERFULLY surprised by this here book of super AWESOMENESS! Super awesomeness, you say? Yes, I SAY!  It is a retelling of Aladdin and I love the arc Jessica Khoury went with.  This time, the jinni is female and her name is Zahra.  She has secrets of her own […]

Stitching Snow by R.C. Lewis | Audiobook Review

Stitching Snow by R.C. Lewis | Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Review At a Glance. Disclaimer:  I listened to the audiobook way back in August so I am not 100% certain about most of the details, but I will review this to the best of my memory. Not another Snow White re-telling! I know many reviewers have compared Stitching Snow by R.C. Lewis to Marissa Meyer’s The Lunar Chronicles but I promise you, it isn’t!  Sure, it has the same themes as TLC but there is a marked difference. Tell me more! Obviously, Princess Snow is missing and she is […]

Winter by Marissa Meyer | Audiobook Review

Winter by Marissa Meyer | Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS So The Lunar Chronicles has come to an end and I have bittersweet feelings about it.  I guess this just stems out of me not wanting this series to ever end!  I mean, there are still loose ends to tie! The moment I finished listening to this book, I had book hangover and I couldn’t wait to talk to someone about it.  Unfortunately, I don’t know anyone who read the book and hubby still hasn;t finished reading it.  Plus he is no fun with book discussions because he just grunts and says “ok” or “it’s good” so… Anyway, […]

Crimson Bound by Rosamund Hodge | Audiobook Review

Crimson Bound by Rosamund Hodge | Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS “I don’t know how to review this book at all!” I finished listening to Crimson Bound by Rosamund Hodge via audiobook a couple of months ago and my initial thought was:  “I don’t know what to say.”  I mean, at this point, I think I am in a love/hate relationship with the book for many, many reasons.  Crimson Bound is a standalone book and is also a retelling of Little Red Riding Hood.  It is not in any way connected or a companion novel to Cruel Beauty but it has the same darkness and themes.  I admit that […]

Fairest by Marissa Meyer | Audiobook Review

Fairest by Marissa Meyer | Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS Let me just tell you that when I read Cinder, I hated Levana on sight (when I read her in the first book Cinder, I mean)!  She really felt like some weird, ugly crypt keeper-like Lunar with the veil concealing her face from the public, and even from us, the readers. So, when I heard that she was going to have her own story, I was excited!  This novella would be the answer to all the questions that had been on my mind.  Like:  What’s with the f-ing veil? or Why do you insist on marrying Prince Kai […]

Cress by Marissa Meyer | Audiobook Review

Cress by Marissa Meyer | Audiobook Review

Before starting my review, I would like to apologize to my readers for posting a blank post for this review a few weeks back.  With my pending vacation (I am still on said vacay), I was unaware that I set this review to post when I haven’t even written it!  So, please pardon my flightiness! My Thoughts Warning: This review may contain spoilers Since I read Scarlet, I have been super excited to read Cress because let’s face it, Thorn is a very interesting character!  In fact, I was hoping that Thorn would be the hero in this book.  I was not […]

Scarlet by Marissa Meyer | Audiobook Review

Scarlet by Marissa Meyer | Audiobook Review

My Thoughts “Unique.  I couldn’t put it down! A must read!” Scarlet is the second book in the Lunar Chronicles series and it is my favorite (I’ve also read Cress) so far!  I absolutely love this retelling of Little Red Riding Hood!  Ms. Meyer has a way of merging both stories – Cinder ( a retelling of Cinderella)  and Scarlet.  It is seamlessly done and very well written. Scarlet focuses on the story of  Scarlet Benoit (Little Red Riding Hood) and Wolf in relation to the whole series.  Scarlet’s grandmother, Michelle Benoit an Imperial Pilot (or something) has gone missing […]
