Blog Tour: Retribution by Virginia Brasch + GIVEAWAY!!!

March 13, 2014 1 Comment Regina

Today is my stop on the blog tour for Retribution by Virginia Brasch and I’m featuring a Review! This blog tour runs from 3rd March 2014 until 16th March 2014.    Retribution is a fierce, action-packed tale of covert operations, arms-dealers, modern day pirates, and pay back. The only thing hotter than the revenge in this novel is the romance. I’m not crazy about the cover of this book. There should have been a beautiful […]

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

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 […]

You can check out my reviews of the first 3 books in this series here, here, and here. You can also check out a feature on C.L. Stone here, and ENTER TO WIN one of her E-books. Forget the Fifty Shades trilogy. The Academy series will pleasantly torture you into submission.     “We’re all in together. Now you are, too.” “Without being in the Academy?” He half smiled. “You can be with us and […]

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

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 […]

  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 […]

        Let them eat cake….. AND DIE!!!   [sc_embed_player fileurl=”http://mereadalot.com/muzak/02%20-%20Heads%20Will%20Roll.mp3″] ( I’m a die-hard Marie Antoinette fan (pun intended), and when I saw this book it was like a Parisian pastry calling to me from behind a shiny window display. I’ve read most of the heavy and historical stuff about Marie , so I was ready to eat up this fluffy-looking  fictitious spin on her legacy. Katie Allender successfully transported me to […]

Jack Langley won’t just melt your heart in Playing With Fire, he’ll melt your knickers as well. The cold, crisp night air nipped at my skin like cat teeth, and the warmth stirring inside me only made it feel colder in contrast. I hurried towards the edge of the woods where Jack requested I meet him after the house was settled in sleep. I hugged myself, and rubbed my hands up and down my arms […]

The Descartes Legacy is a Blockbuster movie waiting to happen. Okay, this book might not be spooky in the BOO! sense, but it’s definitely creepy and suspenseful, thus making it fit for a BOO!ks for October rec. Lucas Grafton– Tall, dark, and handsome. A man on a mission. Our male MC. Jenna Young– Tall, blonde, and beautiful. A woman with a purpose. Our female MC. The Conclave– Exclusive terrorist organization   I really enjoyed the […]

BOO!ks for October/ARC Review: Conjured by Sarah Beth Durst

BOO!ks for October/ARC Review: Conjured by Sarah Beth Durst

October 9, 2013 4 Comments Regina

Conjured is Magical Realism at it’s finest. (Okay, I am posting this ARC review waaaaay late, but as the saying goes, “Better late, than NEVER!” ) Conjured is the kind of story that makes me want to invent words to use to describe it. Basic vocabulary seems unfitting for such a unique story. After reading it, the first thought that sprung to mind was, ” Man, I really want to interview this author!”.  The cover […]

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. […]

* 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 […]

Holy SHIT. This book is unlike ANYTHING I’VE EVER READ BEFORE. I didn’t know what the fuck was going on most of the time. The story is creative and unique, and the writing is impeccable. Usually I pick up on typos and misspellings when I’m reading but I did not notice ANY in this book. The  is a dark story about a young 20 something year old girl named Deanna aka Jess. She has cut […]
