Review: Dream a Little Dream by Kerstin Gier

Totally unexpected. That is the best way to sum up ALL my feelings about this book. This is a tough review for me because I always like to review books objectively. At the same time, there has to be some of my opinion in the review or else I’ll end up sounding like every other generic review. But in this particular story, there was a quirky little point of fact that I kept having a problem looking past the entire time I was reading the story. Hence my 3 ½ star review. I really liked the story, but I can’t go overboard on the “love”.

Review: Taming Lily by Monica Murphy (plus Owning Violet and Stealing Rose)

I’ve been known to read a series or two out of order. Or only read one book in the middle of a series. But for Monica Murphy, I will read the entire series and in order. Besides the fact that she is just a friendly, totally approachable author, she has a writing style I enjoy reading. It’s sexy-hot, sometimes dark (at least this series was), has dual points-of-view, and oh-my-gosh the “romance” is scorching! Yes, it does deserve two mentions.

Review: Hollywood on Tap by Avery Flynn

I had the awesome pleasure of meeting Ms. Flynn this year at Readers and Authors Get Together in early June. I had been hearing awesome things about her and her writing. Turns out, she’s a pretty awesome person if you get the chance to meet her in “real life”. She’s so down to earth, funny, generous, and someone you know you would have fun getting drunk with. Yep, that’s an author I want to support. So I bought a few of her books.

Sunday Post #51: I’m Still Getting Caught Up

I’m going to look like the WORST blogger in history this week. It’s been a while since I’ve looked at Edelweiss so I needed to go in, grab, and get out before some books disappeared on me. Don’t even talk to me about my % average in NetGalley… it ain’t good. I WILL get back above 80%! Yes, it will happen before the close of 2015. I think I feel a reading challenge coming on… unless someone else already thought of it. Hmmmm, got to go Google that one.

Review: The Shadow Revolution by Clay and Susan Griffith

I was super stoked to see that the Griffiths had written another trilogy. I have been meaning to read them ever since they released their Vampire Empire series back in 2011. Call me “easy” but I might have been lured in by the beautiful cover as well. Best part, this new series (a trilogy really) is releasing in quick succession so there’s no waiting in between books. No time to forget about Simon and his super cool tats. No time to forget about Kate, her crazy talent for alchemy, or that pesky unanswered question about her eccentric father who is somewhere out in the world (that one is really bugging me). Here’s why I’ll be reading all three books:

Reviews: The Consequence of Loving Colton & The Consequence of Revenge by Rachel Van Dyken

This is going to sound weird but I read the first two books in Rachel Van Dyken’s Consequence series out-of-order ON PURPOSE and I have no regrets! It most likely changed the mood and tone of each story for me. But I have to say that after reading the first book, I’m so glad I got to know Max in his book first and then got to know Colton and Milo in their book afterwards. It probably won’t make sense unless you’ve already read the books. I’ll try to explain, though.
