Fire & Flood: Victoria Scott Reviews Her Own Book!

February 26, 2014 1 Comment Regina

        Sometimes authors CANNOT RESIST picking up a copy of their own book at their local bookstore. Yep. They wrote the darn book but they want to experience it again with fresh eyes, and pretend they are reading it for the first time. This psychological phenomenon leads these same authors to want to review their own books as well. The following is what happens when they do: In Which Victoria Scott Reviews […]

It’s only been six months since the lovely Meredith from Meredith and Jennifer’s Musings introduced me to the first The Academy series (now known as The Ghost Bird series), but I feel like I’ve been in love with the Academy boys since, like, FOREVER. Drop of Doubt, book 5 in the series, was released earlier this month and C.L. Stone is introducing a new Academy series on February 26 titled The Scarab Beetle series. Thief […]

          I have reddish-brown hair and the palest skin that blushes fiercely, all the way from my chest to my forehead. Eden is our main chick and she shares her name with a couple of other things besides the title in this tale of time travel and romance.  I found her to be a sensible and likable character; a fair skinned beauty who makes the same mistake most  high school girls […]

Drop of Doubt (The Academy #5) by C.L.Stone

January 30, 2014 4 Comments Regina

Hair washing; it’s the new sex. There’s a shift in tone to Drop of Doubt. The first hundred pages had me nostalgic for the prior four books in this series, but nostalgia was quickly replaced with a strong desire to consume this installment down to the last drop. No doubt about it. Sang really comes into herself in this novel and acknowledges that she is more than her mother’s daughter. Sang is becoming a pro […]

Dante Walker. Soul Collector turned Soul Protector. When does the video game come out!? I’ve always been a sucker for the bad boys. When Dante Walker abdicated his Collector Cuff to save Charlie Cooper’s life at the end of The Collector, a little part of my demon-loving heart died. In The Liberator, Dante’s swingin’ for the other team. Big Guy’s team (a.k.a. Lord of the Heavens), and he’s officially turned his back on Lucille (a.k.a […]

“He is yet a stranger to me, and then somehow I feel as though I have known him for many years now, as though he may be the one I imagined would come and whisk me away…” Pg. 13 I think this book was marketed incorrectly. I bet most of the people that went into this book saw it on an Epic Reads ARC party and fell in love with it because of the cover […]

In a fictional world, Ian Somerhalder is my leading man. The Rules of Attraction. That’s the first time I ever knowingly set eyes on Ian Somerhalder. “Who’s the hottie with the eyebrows!?” I asked my college roommate after watching the preview on the pc before she dragged me to see the movie. ” I don’t know, but it’s at the dollar cinema across from campus so we’re going.” “Okay,” I said, “but I’m only going […]

12 Days of Reviews and Giveaways: The Emily Chambers Spirit Medium Trilogy by C.J. Archer

December 22, 2013 3 Comments Regina

Today, I’d like to highlight another one of my favorite C.J. Archer trilogies. The Emily Chambers Spirit Medium trilogy was how I first met C.J. Archer’s writing, and I’ve developed quite a love affair with it since. C.J’s tales of Victorian Era England never fail to sweep me away in grand fashion. If you are planning to read C.J.’s Freak House trilogy, then reading her Medium trilogy before hand will make Freak House that much […]

 You can check out my reviews to the first two books in this series here, and here.   Jack Langley is going to BURN. IT. UP. I’ve been carrying a torch for Jack Langley, and he set my heart ablaze in this last book of the 1st Freak House trilogy. The race to find a cure for Hannah has emotions and tempers running high. The situation is dire. Tempers aren’t the only thing heating up. […]

This isn’t the Susan B. Komen Race for the Cure. This is the Brimstone Bleed.   I want to start a garage band just so I can name it after this book. I”m still debating on whether to name my new baby kitty Pandora, Tella, or Guy. I want a shirt that says, ” I skied the Brimstone Bleed. When Hell freezes over, I’ll ski that too!” There is just so much YES in this […]

  Ladies, you will Surrender your heart (as well as your skivvies) to Alexander Redcliff. A tall, broad shouldered and strikingly handsome gentleman filled the doorway. Striking in that his good looks hit her in the chest and stole her breath. Dark hair curling at the ends framed a strong, lean face. A wide mouth was saved from being overly generous by the sculptured, defined lips. The square jaw could have been hewn from marble […]

ARC Review+GIVEAWAY: The Weight of Words by Georgina Guthrie

December 2, 2013 6 Comments Regina

First, there was Shakespeare. Then, there was Georgina Guthrie. Sometimes you stumble upon a book that appeals to all your senses. A book that wraps itself around you, and warms you to your core like a chenille sweater during a Canadian winter. The Weight of Words is one of those books. In my mind’s eye, TWoW is leather-bound in Oxblood-red with roughly edged, cream colored pages. It’s a romantic contemporary classic that deserves to be […]
