Mini-Review Monday – AGAINST THE DARK by Carolyn Crane

Mini-Review Monday – AGAINST THE DARK by Carolyn Crane

   Romantic suspense is not my usual fare.  That is unless Carolyn Crane is writing it.  I picked this one up simply because I love its author.  Crane has a distinctive voice and her urban fantasy series, The Disillusionist, is one my favorites.  AGAINST THE DARK didn’t disappoint.  The action… Read more »

Review – BLACK ARTS by Faith Hunter

Review – BLACK ARTS by Faith Hunter

I love this series. I really do.  When I finished reading the last book in the Jane Yellowrock world, BLOOD TRADE, I felt even more reinvigorated for the series with its strong mystery, beautifully dark imagery, and the continued evolution of its heroine, Jane Yellowrock.  I feel Faith Hunter, with… Read more »

As some of you may already know, I’m a big fan of Faith Hunter’s Jane Yellowrock series.  It’s one of my auto-buy UF series and while I may not review each release on the blog, rest assured I read them.  I recently devoured book six, BLOOD TRADE, and loved it. … Read more »

Mini-Review Monday – THE DISTANCE BETWEEN US by Kasie West

Mini-Review Monday – THE DISTANCE BETWEEN US by Kasie West

   Yet another YA contemporary that isn’t quite me.  While I’ve enjoyed stepping out of my reading comfort zone, this wasn’t one of those instances.  I read some good reviews (and some lackluster ones) about THE DISTANCE BETWEEN US and I decided to give it a go.  My verdict?  Meh. … Read more »

ARC Review – GILDED by Karina Cooper

ARC Review – GILDED by Karina Cooper

Karina Cooper’s steampunk romance series, The St Croix Chronicles, is, without a doubt, interesting and original.  Cooper created a fantastic world in her alternate Victorian era London and I looked forward to cracking the proverbial spine of book two to see where our intrepid but seriously flawed heroine, Cherry St….

Review – CRACKED by Eliza Crewe

Review – CRACKED by Eliza Crewe

This is a good book.  Trust me.  In CRACKED, author Eliza Crewe managed to turn my expectations on their ears and give me a refreshing YA story with a complex heroine and no love triangle.  Yes, you read that correctly — NO LOVE TRIANGLE.  Can I get an amen?  Every… Read more »

I recently became a Maggie Shayne fan with her new series Brown and Deluca.  I really enjoyed her writing style and her crafting of a memorable heroine.  As a result, I was more than excited to delve into the first book in her Portal series, MARK OF THE WITCH.  Can… Read more »
