I really enjoyed The Wild One, book two in the Roswell High series. It basically picks up right where The Outsider left off, and we are introduced to a new character named Nickolas. Now, if you have watched the Roswell show and read the books before, you know that the Nickolas in Melinda’s book is very different from the one in the show. Just as our three alien-hybrids, Max, Michael, and Isabel, are getting comfortable […]

I was sucked in by the Gravitational pull of this awesome book cover. Humans are no longer alone in the universe. Aliens, known as the Ancients, helped Earth recover from near extinction decades ago, and the Ancients only needed one thing in return: To use humans as their own personal batteries.  Humans are each assigned their own Ancient, and are visited every night by these beings. The Ancients absorb vital nutrients without compromising their human’s […]

I have tried to keep this first post mostly spoiler free, but I can’t promise the same for the rest of the reviews in this series. I remember watching the Pilot of Roswell on television as if it were yesterday. The chemistry between the cast, and the way they played their characters felt true. I discovered the books after the show shot an arrow through my heart like cupid. I was a little nervous to […]

This sexy book was recommended to me by the wonderful Meredith of Meredith’s Musings. Why did I call this book sexy, you ask? Is it because of the cover? NO. It’s because SEVEN good-looking, sensitive yet masculine males are bound between the covers of this novel. Oh, and there are two handsome male teachers to boot. Please do not judge this book by the picture on the front! I know, I know. It looks like […]

      “Until now, I’ve never loved anyone except Aurora. It’s more than his music, more than even the smell of his skin. More than the way his body is like a magnet calling all the iron in my blood. He’s a drug that’s hooked me on the very first trip. “   Do you remember the hard, black, book sized  journals you had to keep in high-school if you were in photography or […]

Saturday Night Shrine: Pepe Toth as Daemon Black

July 20, 2013 4 Comments Regina

Pepe Toth is OUT-OF-THIS-WORLD. When I was a little girl, the only alien I knew about or had a crush on was Alf. That furry little extraterrestrial stole my heart, and I still have my stuffed Alf doll. Now that I’m all grown up, I want my aliens to be hot and heroic. Alf still might be more height appropriate for me (*shrugs* I’m short), but I never want to imagine an alien as fuzzy […]

Page Morgan had me at Sangiovese. If you haven’t read the first book in this series by Page Morgan, The Beautiful and the Cursed, then you can check out my review of it here. This short and satisfying novella had me ready to leave my house and go buy some wine and cheese to enjoy it with. I was intoxicated with the story by the first page.  Marco is Italian. I LOVE all things Italian. […]

I know it’s Sunday, but I am lusting after some literary inspired home and fashion finds. I’m always guilty of judging a book by it’s cover, and I’m not gonna lie. I’ve liked a book so much before, I wished I could wear it…or something inspired by it.  Right now, the items below are as close as I’m gonna get. Would you wear literary inspired fashion? What bookish items are you lusting after? Literary Lusts […]

* Review to be read to one’s self in a proper British accent* I have had Gail Carriger’s Parasol Protectorate series on my TBR list for a while, but decided to start with her Finishing School series since it is written for the YA genre. The corsetted cover model holding a stylish pair of sewing scissors on the dust jacket was enough to make me want to read this book in my finest pair of […]

My favorite red-headed pixie chic is back full force in Death, Doom, and Detention. Many revelations (quite similar to the Book of Revelations)  left Lorelei with an identity crisis and warring emotions in Death and the Girl Next Door. She  found out the boy she’s in love with is the Angel of Death, her creepy stalker is her Nephilim body-guard, and there is a dormant demon residing in her. And that’s just a short list. Now, […]

The thought of reading a New Adult novel strikes up an image of me reading  under my covers with the darkness of night to shield me. The few that I have read in the past seemed to be heavy on smut, and light on story and character development. I haven’t been a particular fan of the genre, or sought out any of these books to read for enjoyment. One thing I do seek out for […]

It’s not a secret to my friends and family that I stalk Robert Pattinson on the Robsessed Blog. I didn’t discover Twilight until I caught one of those entertainment shows doing a behind the scenes segment with the cast to promote the film before it was released. I can remember the exact moment. My jaw dropped, and my eyes glazed over as I saw Rob (Edward) offering Bella an apple. A subsequent “oooooh” escaped my […]

Darynda Jones had me at FIVE FEET TALL…“I lowered my voice, controlled the tone and inflection of every word, every syllable, striving to make myself sound menacing. I took up a mere five feet of vertical air space, so menacing was not always easy for me to accomplish.” Welcome to the world of Lorelei McAlister. At five feet tall, red-headed, and alabaster complected, Darynda Jones creates quite the firecracker in our petite heroine. Lorelei’s parents […]

I had to read this book because the guy on the cover was calling to me. I mean, come on. Just look at the perfectly subtle, bow-shaped pout of those lips. Could you resist such pillows of perfection? The rest of that bad boy face isn’t bad, either. Now that we have established that I’m shallow, let’s take a deeper look at this book. Dylan is our hunk on the cover. An outcast since birth, […]

Ten Hail Mary’s and some Bible scriptures later, I review Demonic Dora. Be ready to confess your sins after reading this book. It’s sacrilegious, vulgar…..and unfortunately, VERY FUNNY. I picked this book to read because I liked the Goth cover and name. I honestly can’t even remember if I read what the book was about, so I went into it not knowing what to expect.   I probably should have known what to expect. This […]
