Review: As I Wake by Elizabeth Scott

Review: As I Wake by Elizabeth Scott

The one star? Yeah, that was for the cover. Thank God this book was less than 300 pages. It was awful and the only reason I read it so fast was to force my way through it and make it to something more interesting. I’m actually quite proud of myself for making it through at all.   Starting out, your first thought is…WTF? Ava doesn’t have a clue what’s happening, and since the story is in first person POV, neither […]

Review: Sweet Venom by Tera Lynn Childs

Review: Sweet Venom by Tera Lynn Childs

After reading Bloodlust, this book seemed rather mundane. I wasn’t wowed by Childs’ prose, but I do admit there weren’t really many spots in this book that I got bored. This book was simple and mindless with not much thought required…but sometimes it’s nice for a quick and easy read. I really like the thought behind the story in this one…triplets separated at birth (with mythological powers) stumble upon each other unexpectedly…kind of like Parent Trap with a twist.  I […]

Review: Bloodlust by Michelle Rowen

Review: Bloodlust by Michelle Rowen

Man, this book was intense. Rowen outdid herself in this one. This was an emotional rollercoaster of a read…from shock to anger to despair, I felt like I was right there with Jill at every turn. Rowen really injected you as a reader into the story in a way that surpassed the first book. There were so many times I was engrossed in this book, reading open-mouthed in awe (and exclaiming “oh shit!” out loud).    Declan’s mood swings (caused […]

Review: Nightshade by Michelle Rowen

Review: Nightshade by Michelle Rowen

I have been looking forward to reading this book ever since I laid eyes on it, so I had pretty high expectations. And thankfully, it didn’t disappoint. It certainly wasn’t a slow start (which appealed to me, because I get bored easily), with Jill getting stabbed with a syringe and injected with Nightshade, vampire poison. I loved the development between Jill and and her kidnapper, Dec…the way it turns into Stockholm Syndrome also appeals to me because I really like romances […]

Review: Darkfever by Karen Marie Moning

Review: Darkfever by Karen Marie Moning

This is hands down my favorite series. The entire saga is just incredibly written with so many twists and turns and dark secrets. I love the world that Karen paints with brilliant and masterful words! I just read this one again so I am writing this review now. When I finish my library books, I’ll start back up with the re-reading the rest of the series and review those too. Reading this for the second time was almost as thrilling […]

Review: Rosemary and Rue by Seanan McGuire

Review: Rosemary and Rue by Seanan McGuire

Not gonna lie, this book was pretty boring. It was extremely slow and didn’t seem to have much of a plot. It was a lot of Toby running around and getting hurt. She was constantly almost dying, it was a little annoying really. It’s been a month or two since I read it and I already forget most of the book. I did enjoy several of the characters, one was a young, headstrong girl (I don’t even remember her name…sad, […]
