Talon by Julie Kagawa | Audiobook Review

Talon by Julie Kagawa | Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Review At a Glance. First off, I just want to say that I love how awesome the cover is! Does anyone agree?  Well, it seems that this is the only highlight of the book.  The last book I read with shapeshifting dragons was Vanish by Sophie Jordan and that turned into a DNF for me, no matter how much I loved Firelight, the first book in the series.  Why am I mentioning this?  It is because Talon is similar to this dragon story. What is this story about? This […]

The Beautiful Ashes by Jeaniene Frost | Audiobook Review

The Beautiful Ashes by Jeaniene Frost | Audiobook Review

The Beautiful Ashes by Jeaniene Frost is her first YA novel.  I have been putting off reviewing this book for a few months because Jeaniene Frost is one of my favorite authors and this book was a huge disappointment to me. What is it about? The Beautiful Ashes is about a young teen (adopted) who has the power to see otherworldly things (i.e. ghosts, different places not seen by other normal humans).  When her sister is kidnapped and her foster parents die of a car accident, Ivy is left alone and vows to find out what happened.  Because of her investigations, […]

The Match of the Century by Cathy Maxwell | Book Review

The Match of the Century by Cathy Maxwell | Book Review

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. MY THOUGHTS One of my favorite tropes is reunion romances and A Match of the Century by Cathy Maxwell was going to be that.  However, I was hugely disappointed.  I really tried to soldier on and finish the book, but I just couldn’t do it!  I finally gave up at 79% and decided to just let it go and mark it as DNF. What did not work for […]

How to Lose a Lord in 10 Days or Less by Elizabeth Michels | Book Review

How to Lose a Lord in 10 Days or Less by Elizabeth Michels | Book Review

My Thoughts How to Lose a Lord in 10 Days or Less is the first book by Elizabeth Michels that I read.  This book is the third of the series but can read as a standalone.  I initially picked up this book because I had read a couple of books with the same title (or very, very similar) last month and I loved it!  I thought that this book would be the same.  The story focuses on a stuffy aristocrat, Andrew Clifton, Lord Amberstall and country girl recluse, Katie Moore.  Both have been a little estranged in society and found each […]

Evermore by Alyson Noël | Audiobook Review

Evermore by Alyson Noël | Audiobook Review

My Thoughts “Meh…unbelievable” I don’t know how to start this review at all.  Having said that, I know that I am not going to pick up the sequels – ever (pun intended)!  If you do want to try this out, check out your local library (which I thankfully did) to see if you like it. The story starts off pretty strong.  Ever Bloom (right?!) is the only survivor of a fatal car crash and she moves to Laguna Beach, California to live with her father’s twin sister.  The result of the car crash?  She can see auras and can read […]

Woo’d in Haste by Sabrina Darby | Book Review

Woo’d in Haste by Sabrina Darby | Book Review

My Thoughts Woo’d In Haste is the first book of the Taming series by Sabrina Darby and is a retelling of William Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew.  This is a longish novella about 150 pages and it read like a novella.  Woo’d In Haste tells the story of Miss Bianca Mansfield and Lucien Dorlingsley, Viscount Asquith and how they “fell” in love. This is the first book that I read by Sabrina Darby.  Unfortunately, I didn’t really enjoy it as much.  Maybe owing to the “live at first sight” trope.  Now, don’t get me wrong, I do love a […]

A Long, Long Sleep by Anna Sheehan | Book Review

A Long, Long Sleep by Anna Sheehan | Book Review

My Thoughts I was very surprised when I read A Long Long Sleep. I actually read a review on this book while blog hopping (I forgot which blog it was) and I thought the blurb sounded very interesting. When the ebook was available at the library, I immediately checked it out and promptly forgot about it. Fast forward to three days before the book was due and I received an email from the library that the book was due. I started reading it that same day and I enjoyed it. The story is that Rosalinda, daughter of one of the […]

A Most Scandalous Proposal by Ashlyn Macnamara | Book Review

A Most Scandalous Proposal by Ashlyn Macnamara | Book Review

This is Ashlyn Macnamera’s debut novel so she is definitely a new to me author.  Don’t get me wrong, I do love to read new to me authors.  In fact, I have discovered a lot of awesome authors this way.  However, this story just missed the mark.  I read the book knowing this was going to be about Miss Julia St. Claire but instead, I was reading about the sister Sophia meeting another guy!  I mean, I just barely started reading and by the time I reached Chapter 3, I was totally confused about where this story was headed. True, […]
