  As some of you may remember, Jennifer L. Armentrout is one of my favorite authors.  Because of my love for her Lux series, I was definitely intrigued when I learned she was writing a YA suspense novel.  So it’s with great pleasure that I offer you this peek into… Read more »

ARC Review – CRUEL BEAUTY by Rosamund Hodge

ARC Review – CRUEL BEAUTY by Rosamund Hodge

CRUEL BEAUTY by Rosamund Hodge was a good read.  A nice retelling of the Beauty and the Beast tale with original worldbuilding, stunning imagery, and a heroine that defies YA convention.  Though I had some issues with the romance and the pacing, I thoroughly enjoyed CRUEL BEAUTY.  What I loved… 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 »

Mini-Review Monday – Lovely Vicious by Sara Wolf

  I really enjoyed LOVELY VICIOUS by Sara Wolf.  It’s not my typical read but, after having read a few reviews from bloggers I love, I downloaded it on a whim and really couldn’t put it down.  The story revolves around the relationship between Isis, the new girl in school,… Read more »

Mini-Review Monday – The Lunar Chronicles

Mini-Review Monday – The Lunar Chronicles

This series surprised me.  I didn’t think I’d be interested in it.  The idea of a cyborg Cinderella intrigued me but not enough to go out and buy the first book in the series, Cinder.  Then the reviews started coming in and bloggers I follow and enjoy began to sing… Read more »

Review – Ashes on the Waves by Mary Lindsey

Review – Ashes on the Waves by Mary Lindsey

There are certain keywords and story settings that are like crack to me.  If I see them in a blurb or in a synopsis, I can’t help it.  I hit the “buy” button immediately.  Those words include “gothic” and “romance;” those settings include small towns.  And if they happen to… Read more »

ARC Review – THE COLLECTOR by Victoria Scott

ARC Review – THE COLLECTOR by Victoria Scott

  I was really looking forward to the release of Victoria Scott’s THE COLLECTOR for two reasons.  First, I rarely read male POVs so I was interested in reading a paranormal where the male voice would take center stage; second, by all the buzz around the book, I knew that… Read more »
