Honestly, this is a “it’s not you, it’s me” situation. I used to read Paranormal Romance a lot in my early 20’s, and I just plain got sick of it. After a while, it all reads EXACTLY THE SAME. Super sexy, single Mary Sue – a virgin too, eye roll – in her mid 20’s (what 25 year old has NEVER HAD AN ORGASM? I mean I’m sure it happens occasionally but why is it EVERY SINGLE PR EVER?!) meets […]

Oh my goodness, I found an Urban Fantasy that I actually enjoyed! And that breaks out of the genre! I usually hate Urban Fantasy, because they all read exactly the same. For once I was pleasantly surprised! This one stands out and brought a fresh perspective to the table that I thoroughly enjoyed. First of all, SINDARI. Um, sentient magical tiger sidekick, YES PLEASE! Actually, he was the reason I picked this up in the first place. Ya’ll know I’m a […]

Wow. I don’t really know what I expected going in. I saw Cait’s (@paperfury) review where she said “this book softly held my hand, lead me to the edge of a cliff, and then shoved me straight on off” and went and bought it instantly. I didn’t even really know what genre it was – the synopsis is very vague, so I thought it was a contemporary pushing thriller with maybe some possible paranormal elements. What I got was NOTHING […]

Audiobook Review: Rules for Vanishing by Kate Alice Marshall

This book was suuuper creepy!! I love how twisted and bizarre it was. It was definitely dark and atmospheric – this would have been a perfect Halloween read! I didn’t think it was scary, but definitely disturbing at times. That was 100% the selling point of this book for me! I adore the dark and disturbing and this book was full of it. My main complaint about it, though, is that I couldn’t connect to any of the characters. I […]

Why did I wait so long to read this book?! I’d been seeing a lot of people say good things about it, but for some reason I thought it was a Historical so I was put off from reading it. It’s not a Historical, but it is about the Amish, which isn’t something I would usually be interested in reading (only because I steer clear of any books with religion). But I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this […]

Okay, so I’d enjoy anything Mortal Instruments just because I love the world. But sadly, I’ve fallen out of love with this series. Don’t get me wrong, I still enjoyed it while reading – but ever since City of Glass, the books have failed to leave a lasting impression on me. It’s kind of like beating a dead horse at this point. I strongly believe that Cassie should have left this a trilogy, the way it was originally meant to […]
