Review: Welcome Caller, This is Chloe by Shelley Coriell

Welcome Caller was bittersweet and touched on some difficult subjects like drug addiction, Parkinson’s, and change, but still managed to stay light and fun. The characters were wonderfully flawed and different in their  own way. I hated Chloe at times, but she grew on me towards the end. She was self-centered and a bit vain, but her wit charmed me and made me giggle quite a few times. In the beginning I kind of just wanted to slap her – […]

I may get flogged for this…but I couldn’t even bear to finish this one. There was so much hype and sooo many people marked this as 4 or 5 stars – which, frankly, I can’t see why – but it just was not for me. I knew going in that it was historical fiction, but decided to give it a try anyway (even though I hate anything historical), because it had such great reviews and ratings. But, after about 200 pages, […]

Oh my, where do I start? This book was so wonderful!! I’ve been stuck in this horrible rut of mediocre books with vomit-inducing romances for so long that I was beginning to think it was just me. But as it turns out, it isn’t! I loved this one from start to finish. It opens with Annie getting totally shot down by some buttface jock and I immediately saw her as a kindred spirit, because let’s face it – I was […]

The only complaint I have about this book: It wasn’t long enough. The stories within a story were awesome and really set the scene (even though I didn’t really know it). The tale of the dragon was very witty and I really liked the Ice Flower story, but my favorite was the new take on a werewolf stemming from Alchemy. Very interesting and unique! The touch of steampunk was pretty cool too! The relationship between Rolph and Tara moved a bit […]

I must say I kinda waffled when it came to rating this one. I had a bit of a love/hate relationship going with this  book, alternating between being intrigued and bored out of my freakin’ mind. My attention span wandered and I couldn’t connect to the characters at all, which really dragged the story down for me. A few times I considered giving up, but I’m glad I didn’t. The last 20% or so made up for the rest. When […]

I kept waiting for this story to grab hold of me and pull me under (tee hee). Sadly, it never did. Not to say I didn’t like it, because it was still pretty good…but I found myself getting bored frequently. It was a refreshing change to be told in the POV of a male protag. My comfort zone really lies with female lead roles, so this story broke that mold for me. I do believe the only other male POV’s I’ve read are […]
