Blood Games (Chicagoland Vampires)

I am not sure when it started but by book eight of the Chicagoland Vampires by Chloe Neill I was sorely disappointed. I read book nine simply to give the series the benefit of the doubt. Then decided I would not go on any longer. That is until I heard that the final book in…

Tiger Lily

I will declare here and now that I have never read or watched any of the Peter pan books or movies. I do know that Peter pan is associated with Wendy and Neverland. I do not know his story, I do not know the characters involved in his story, I have nothing. Zilch. Allow me…

Harbinger

Harbinger, harbinger of death to be more specific is something/someone I have long been curious about. Harbinger by Sara Wilson Etienne has such a beautiful cover that I was seduced to devour it. Man, am I glad. This is such a beautiful world that Sara has created, rather than say that the world she created…

Orphan Train

“Nothing encumbered movement more than fear, which was often the most difficult burden to surrender.” –Bunny McBride¬†Women of the Dawn The phrase is part of a quote that appears before the title page in the book and I really loved it for I felt it was true. I’ve been eyeing Orphan Train by Christina Kline…

The Child’s Child

The Child’s Child by Ruth Rendell writing as Barbara Vine is not my usual cup of tea. Its Literature. The reason I picked this book was the title and the reason why I read this book is the summary. Now let me tell you this before I go on, this post is likely to contain…

Saturn’s Daughter, Wielder of Justice

Boyfriend from Hell by Jamie Quaid. If I submitted one of my ancient assignment papers for publication, this is probably what it would look like. See, I had cracked the secret to meeting word counts–you take everything you’ve said and rephrase it a gazillion times through the paper giving off the feeling that you’ve said…

Cast in Peril

When I first started reading The Chronicles of Elantra by Michelle Sagara, I was absolutely in love. Now, eight books in and I’m not sure why. It is not so much the story as it is the characters. Most of them have a ego bigger than Jupiter. Why I never wanted to pick up another…

The Alex Craft Series

I never re-read a book. Never. Mostly because I can’t. I usually remember the story, the details, they’re lost to me, but what happened and why it happened stays with me. So I usually don’t have the desire to read the story again. I’m telling y’all all this because I recently re-read a book. *Gasp*…
