Monarch Madness: The Midnight Witch by Paula Brackston + GIVEAWAY!

March 27, 2015 5 Comments Regina

  Okay, so this book doesn’t technically involve a monarch BUT it does involve a Duke and Duchess, so I’ve decided to include this review and the giveaway hosted by St.Martin’s Press. I had not had the pleasure of reading one of Paula Brackston’s books until The Midnight Witch, and I cannot believe it took me this long to get around to it. I can’t imagine a more magical combination for a Historical Fiction lover […]

Bad Girls Don’t Die (Bad Girls Don’t Die #1) by Katie Alender

Bad Girls Don’t Die (Bad Girls Don’t Die #1) by Katie Alender

March 12, 2015 1 Comment Regina

A fresh and funny take on the classic possessed-doll-poltergeist story. I love Katie Alender. Her writing is clever and carries that kind of quick-wit charm you see on the big screen or current television shows aimed at teens. I really enjoy Katie’s writing and her simple yet effective characterization. I first fell in love with Katie’s writing in her book, Marie Antoinette, Serial Killer. You can check out my review of that one, here. Alexis […]

Fever (Parallon #1) by Dee Shulman

Fever (Parallon #1) by Dee Shulman

February 7, 2015 0 Comments Regina

The Parallon Trilogy trailer from Dee Shulman’s website: I really liked this book. On top of the eye-catching, must-own cover, the love story at the heart of Fever was beautifully woven in and out of the past and present.   The first part of Fever takes place in present day London with our female protagonist, Eva. Eva is characterized as a girl who is too smart for her own good. Bored by the public school system, […]

I remember the first time I almost purchased Grave Mercy. It was a fateful spring night and under a facade of calmness, I was trying to decide on a book to purchase from Target’s limited selection of YA lit as the clock clicked closer to closing time. The book I had come for was out of stock, so I scanned the section for something else that looked appealing. I HAD to have a book. Going […]

The Romance and Mystery continue at The Frankingham Estate aka Freak House: The Memory Keeper picks up with Samuel and Charity’s story right where we left off at the end of the first Freak House trilogy. I was SO ATTACHED and IN LOVE with Jack […]

I jumped at the chance to read and review this for a blog tour that SHP was organizing. It had been awhile since I had read a book with an Angel theme and this one sounded promising and well, the cover art really got me too. I think the cover is beautiful. We follow Julia as she learns more about whom she descends from and we find out what she’s been through in her life […]

I don’t mind first endings, second endings or sad endings. But I do mind farewell endings. There’s no one who hates the ”farewell” ending of a series more than I do. Now, I can’t technically prove that last statement. But I CAN prove how much I loved the Dante Walker trilogy and how much Victoria Scott’s debut series meant to me. How can I prove this you ask? With glowing praise and reverent reviews and […]

You can find my review of Destiny (BKoD #3) here and a short interview I did with P.T. Michelle featured on Scriptland about self-publishing here. P.T. Michelle knows how to write romance. I have a problem with guys sprouting wings in books. It’s one of the main reasons why I didn’t get into the Fallen series by Lauren Kate. But P.T. Michelle does wings right! I LOVE the male MC, Ethan, in this series, wings and […]

My thoughts… I enjoyed this story for the most part. There were a few minors things that I didn’ t care for, but overall I enjoyed it. I found the plot to be intriguing and I couldn’ t wait to get started reading it. Once I got started I couldn’ t put it down. I was able to read it in a day which is pretty fast for me. I loved both main characters. Jase […]

January 13, 2014 8 Comments Regina

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 […]

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. […]

Check out Michelangelo’s beautiful work and other sources on the Italian icon HERE! “Caterina, a great adventure is in store for you.”     Cat Crawford comes from your typical Hollywood family: broken with baggage. Her father is a Hollywood executive, and her mother is an actress with a scandalous existence that guarantees she gets lip-service on every tabloid in the country.

        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 […]

To be honest, when this book series was first announced I was like, ‘Gargoyles?!! Why would anyone write about gargoyles?’ Then I remembered that this is Jennifer L. Armentrout that is writing these books! I shouldn’t question her for writing about gargoyles, I should just trust the knowledge that we all know: Jennifer L. Armentrout writes the most swoon-worthy male characters EVER. After that realization I started to get excited! One day Jasmine’s father has […]

This book was crazy, complicated and all over the place, and I LOVED IT. Reaper’s Novice was another one of those books that I chose to read because of the awesome cover. The interior settings of this story are just as beautiful, and that’s what initially kept me reading. I was also very curious to see how our main character’s violin played into the story. Avoiding any spoilers, let’s just say Ana, her violin, and […]
