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 »

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….

The Clockwork Scarab by Colleen Gleason is an entertaining YA steampunk featuring Sherlock Holmes’ intrepid niece, Mina, and Bram Stoker’s vampire hunting little sister, Evaline.  I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to read such a creative and promising premise for a new series.   Of course what I always tend to… Read more »

Mini(ARC)-Review – Awaken the Curse by Alexa Egan

  I‘m honestly unsure how to review Awaken the Curse, author Alexa Egan’s prequel novella to her Imnada Brotherhood series.  On the one hand, I think Egan succeeded in creating interest in a complex paranormal world and mythos.  On the otherhand, I really could care less about the romantic relationship between… Read more »

ARC Review & Giveaway – Nightlife by Matthew Quinn Martin

ARC Review & Giveaway – Nightlife by Matthew Quinn Martin

Nightlife is a creepy new horror novel by author Matthew Quinn Martin.  There’s a lot to recommend about this book, particularly the strong lead characters and Martin’s unsettling take on vampires.  However, there were some issues I had with secondary characters and multiple POVs that kept Nightlife from really shining… Read more »
