Let me begin by saying it won't be all of the books that I've read this year. I'm a prolific reader and have read quite a bit this year. I want to focus on the books that stood out to me, the ones that I enjoyed and the ones I anticipated. The list might be a bit long, so I'll not to run on too much about each book. You already know that I'm not the best at reviewing books anyway.Read More
Oh my gosh. I’m in shock and actually quite dismayed. I just finished reading Nalini Singh’s new book Archangels Prophecy. It’s a punch to the gut and the worst cliff-hanger possible. This book was simply a roller-coaster, I had no idea what was coming next. Why was Elena getting weaker, which symptom would be next, where is this all heading?Read More
Books have been a pleasure for me this year. I didn’t write as many review posts as I would have liked to and I promise I will do better on that in 2018. One of the stand out posts for me this year was about what a well written book looks like to me, and though as I mentioned already I didn’t write nearly as many reviews as I should have, the year was still full of literature that kept me entertained and even a bit in my feelings.Read More
So I usually post a book review, on this last Sunday. However I haven’t read any new books that compelled me to write a review about them. Instead I’ve been revisiting books from one of my fave authors Shelly Laurenston. I’ve mentioned her a few times here and here. So I’m dedicating this post to a few of my favourite books that she’s written, through all of her various series.Read More
I was so apprehensive before I started reading this book. After reading the blurb I was expecting the worst and honestly I was scared thinking about what was gonna happen. I am quite pleased when I say that while there were definitely some unexpected turns in the story it worked out well in the end.Read More
So for the past few weeks I've been binge reading books from the author Kathy Barton. I have a love hate relationship with her books. Her story lines are pretty unique and her catalog varied but there are sometimes gaps and jumps that simply make no sense in her books. Characters will do random things that seem to occur just to prolong the story line even though it's not necessary. It seems that she wants the story to go a certain way and does an abrupt lane change to make it happen.Read More
If you enjoy the Fantasy/ Sci- Fi genre and haven’t read a Sherrilyn Kennyon book, then you’ve been missing out. I will say upfront that she takes her characters through the ringer. They tend to experience pain and heartache on a whole other level, sometimes I do find it a bit hard to read. This is the ninth/tenth? book in the Born of Series, I’ve read pretty much all of them, I think.Read More
I’ve read quite a few books this year, which doesn’t come as a surprise to me, reading is one of my favourite things to do when I have free time. I can’t articulate just why I enjoy reading so much, maybe I’m just a nosy person. After all reading does take into you the lives of other people, it tells you their stories and adventures. Their successes and triumphs and also their failures. Even if it’s all just a tall tale.Read More
When I first heard about this book, I was pretty excited. I’ve read the other eight books in the series and enjoyed them immensely, even though I initially thought I would hate them.
With this one I was certain what to expect, I just knew that I didn’t want anyone that I liked to die, and you can imagine that after eight books their are just a few characters that I like and would prefer stayed alive. It felt a little bit suspenseful to me because I kept expecting death. Not the best mindset to be in when reading but that was where I was at.Read More
Yes I know another G. A. Aiken Dragon Kin book. I promise I’ll have a different series and author next month, I just couldn’t resist.
I got my hands on this book, it turns out that I hadn’t read it before, which surprised me because I thought that I had read all of the Dragon Kin books, I was obviously wrong.Read More
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again Shelly Laurenston aka G.A Aiken is one of my favourite writers.
If you’ve never read any of the books that she’s written under her pseudonym G.A Aiken, you’re missing out. Heck if you’ve never read any of her books you’re missing out. I find the plot and the characters to to be well developed.Read More
Patricia Briggs, Nailini Singh and Shelley Laurenson. Three of my favourite authors. They write stories that compel me, that get me invested in the lives of their characters, I want to know everything that is happening to them even after the book has finished.Read More
