December 28, 2018 1 Comment Regina

By now everyone knows that a re-imagining/series sequel of the CW hit television show Buffy the Vampire Slayer (Joss Whedon) is in the works. As if that weren’t exciting enough, Kiersten White’s new series set in the Buffy universe is hitting the shelves on January 8th! Buffy’s back (sort of), bitchezzzz! via GIPHY From what I’ve read on Goodreads, Slayer (Slayer #1) closely follows the Buffy comics and picks up shortly after the ending of […]

The Suffering Tree by Elle Cosimano: The Review, the Controversy

October 15, 2017 2 Comments Regina

“It’s Dark Magic Brings Him Back.” The name and the cover of this book were not appealing to me. I did, however, think that the dark synopsis was original, therefore intriguing. I did not want to be lame and judge a book by its cover, so I started reading it. Long story short, I could not put this book down. This novel was a refreshing departure from the market-driven YA books that I have been […]

Under the Influence was a great read that had unique and interesting characters. I really liked Dalton. When things got tough he did what he had to do in order to insure wrongs were made right. Both he and Spencer came from less than desirable backgrounds. Their young lives were rough. Spencer by far lucked out when she was placed with a good family. Eventually Dalton was placed there too. It was then that Dalton […]

Release Day & Review: All the Rage by Courtney Summers

April 14, 2015 0 Comments Christy

All the Rage is written by a new to me author. The synopsis sounded really interesting so I thought I’d give it a try. For the most part I think the book was okay. It didn’t really blow me away. At times it was slow going. The suspense aspect was good, but I was easily able to figure that it out pretty easily. I found Romy to be quite a strange girl. I can’t really […]

My thoughts… Take Me On is part of one of my favorite YA series. It’s well written and very enjoyable. I really liked West in the previous book and was happy that Take Me On was his book. I also really liked Haley too. She’s a very strong heroine and I think her and West made a great couple. I enjoyed sinking into their world. Even though I really enjoyed this book it took me […]

My thoughts… This is one of those auto-buys. I honestly did not read the synopsis for this novella. I’m a big fan of Ms McGuire’s work. I absolutely loved Beautiful Disaster & Walking Disaster. So when I heard she had a new series coming out I knew I had to read it. Right away I was drawn into this story. Easter, who’s first name is Erin is one of three Erin’s in her high school […]

May 15, 2014 1 Comment Christy

My thoughts… What a great novella. It’s a beautifully written short story about two high school seniors who come from different backgrounds. Way different. I found both Jonah and Stella interesting and I enjoyed slipping into their world. Even though they’ve been aware of each other for years, they’ve never been friends. That all changes in the most unlikely place. Once I started reading I couldn’t put this one down. It had me experiencing all […]

April 10, 2014 0 Comments Christy

My thoughts… I’ll be honest… I sort of went into this book blindly. I wasn’t sure what to expect going into it. A couple twitter pals recommended this book so I thought I’d give it a try. Things started off great. I was enjoying the first few chapters, but then things started to change for me. Clay started acting irrational and I had a hard time accepting his behavior. I’m hoping this isn’t to spoilerish, […]

My thoughts… Sia. I really liked this one. It held my attention from the beginning until the end. I think both the main and secondary characters were very interesting. I loved Sia. (love her name) She wakes up on a park bench and has absolutely no idea who she is or how she got there. She’s forced to spend a week living homeless on the streets. She befriends a homeless woman named Carol who helps […]

My thoughts… Hated is the final book in the Rock Star trilogy by Mercy Amare. I have to say that I’m a little sad that this series has come to an end. I’ve really enjoyed spending time with not only the main characters, but the secondary characters as well. This one starts off with Stephan and Scarlett being newlyweds. I don’t know why, but I had forgotten that Stephan and Scarlett tied the knot at […]

Excerpt: “You’ re so hot, and sexy. I just… I want to lick you.” I have no idea why, but I laugh. Hard. “You want to lick me?” “Yeah!” Ty nods. “Can I?” “Where?” “Right here,” he answers, motioning around us. “I don’ t care who sees.” I laugh. “No. Where would you lick me at? Like on my body.” Ty smiles. “Anywhere you want.” Hmm… I’ m liking this. “How about everywhere.” Ty looks […]

This book mainly focuses on the relationship between Emma and her mother Rachel. Emma wants to try and see if they can salvage their torn relationship before she heads off to college after she graduates. Right from the beginning I couldn’t understand why Rachel wanted Emma to call […]

My thoughts… This book was amazing. I loved it so much! Holder has got to be one of the best heroes I had the privilege to read about. Losing Hope is written in Holders POV. I know that seems to be the new thing these days. Authors writing a companion novels in the leading males POV. I’ve heard some negative things about this as well as positive. Normally the deciding factor for me is if […]

My thoughts… Amazing. Absolutely amazing. I loved this book. At first I was a little worried that this book wouldn’t live up to the first book. Sometimes that happens. The more I read though, the more I learned that Falling Into Us is just as amazing as book one. The story is told from both Jason & Becca’s POV. Both are secondary characters in the first book entitled Falling Into You. I loved getting to […]
