I was anticipating Vivien’s story since I read her in the first book, An Introduction to Pleasure. Now, reading the first chapter blew me away. It introduced us to the depraved life of Vivien and how she has been living her life year after year after year. The first scene actually made me empathize with her as she was trying to find fulfillment in her life. Considering all the parties and sexual conquests, she was getting fed up with it. We also get to revisit the previous couples of the other two books and in a way, it makes Vivien […]
A new month is here! I’m pretty excited this much as this month marks our 5th wedding anniversary! I still can’t believe that we made it to 5 years. This marks 11 years of us being together. Anyway, on to my list. I saw Beautiful Creatures on the Big Screen last month and I was intrigued. The movie was pretty meh for me but the premise of the whole series caught my attention. Plus, the series was discounted during the movie premiere week so I bought my copy. I also bought By Love Unveiled by Sabrina Jeffries which I had […]
I had high hopes for February. With it being the month of love, I thought I would be reading a lot of romance! Unfortunately, that was not the case. I’ve had hits and misses this month and have only finished reading TWO books! Can you imagine that? I’ve probably opened up to 5 books last month that I haven’t finished. Here’s a short recap of the books that I read – some I did finish and some I didn’t. Everneath by Brodi Ashton – ♥♥♥ A Mermaid’s Kiss by Joey W. Hill – ♥♥♥ The Importance of Being Wicked by Victoria […]
Everneath is loosely based on the Greek mythology of Persephone and Hades and of Orpheus and Eurydice with mentions of the Egyptian gods Isis and Osiris. The story starts 6 human months after the feed where the main protagonist Nikki awakens after being sent to the Everneath (or the Underworld). The Feed or Feeding is the way an Everliving (those immortals that live in the Underworld) can continue their immortal lives by stealing/feeding on the emotions and memories of the living (humans). The feed lasts for a hundred years which is like 6 months of human time. Once you have been […]
For some reason, this song has been playing on my mind for the umpteenth time since last week. In fact, hubby has been so annoyed he always skips this song when I play it. So yeah, I was listening to the song while driving home from work. Guilty! This song reminds me of the following books Do you have any song right now that reminds you of a certain book or books? Comment bellow!
It’s another week again and here’s my newest top 10! Top 10 Tuesday is hosted by The Broke & Bookish. Here’s my top 10 in no particular order. I decided to divide them between my childhood faves and adult faves. Without these childhood faves, I’m sure I would never have been seduced into the wonderful world of reading. Ronald Weasley (Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling) Who doesn’t love Harry’s sidekick? This carrot top is way better than Harry ever was. Well, IMHO anyway. Harry is okay but Ron is the one that really captured my interest. I love how […]
There are times when the books you pick end up as a DNR (Do Not Resuscitate, yes because I am a nurse, so I have to call it that). At the first of the month, I had high hopes with my book choices. In fact, I signed up for a mini challenge hoping to get through my TBR pile in a breeze. For the most part, I had hoped that by mid month, I would be at least halfway done. But no. I just couldn’t get past finishing my choices. Maybe I was being ambitious. But I thought picking 5 books […]
