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 […]

December 20, 2013 2 Comments Regina

 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. […]

Erin’s Review:   Hello Ladies! There’s a new alien in town and he’s here to collect all of our hearts!     Yes, Yes it is. His name is Trey Allairis and it didn’t take long for him to have me swooning all over the place! While he’s not actually referred to as an Alien, He does mention being from another world and to get to said world they have to travel through a worm hole. […]

Jewels, and Bitches, and Boys! Oh, my! If you have watched HBO’s The Tudors, or nurse a love for English history (as do I), than you have probably been drawn to the Gilt, Tarnish, and Brazen books by Katherine Longshore. The stunning covers on the most recent editions of these books invoke a sense of richness and luxury reserved for kings and queens. I appreciate the hours and hard work spent on Katherine’s part to […]

BOO!ks for October: Playing With Fire (Freak House #2) by C.J. Archer

October 28, 2013 1 Comment Regina

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 […]

Hell hasn’t frozen over, Lorelie was sent to Maine. (You can check out my review for books one and two in this trilogy here, and here.) At the end of book two in the Darklight trilogy, Lorelei was ghosted away to a boarding school in Maine to keep her safe from the restless spirits and forces of evil that were hunting her down back  in Riley’s Switch, New Mexico.  She is the last prophet , […]

Stars in September: Still Star-Crossed by Melinda Taub

Stars in September: Still Star-Crossed by Melinda Taub

September 30, 2013 0 Comments Regina

Melinda Taub’s Still Star-Crossed is full of bloody brawls, Princess Bride style adventure, chivalrous rescues, and Bard-level story crafting. It definitely put me in the mood to re-watch Franco Zeffirelli’s Romeo and Juliet. The Main Players: Rosaline- Romeo’s prior infatuation  Prince Escalus- Prince of Verona Benvolio- R0meo’s kinsman Livia- Rosaline’s younger sister Paris- Juliet’s intended before Romeo For the past 15 years of my life, I have DESPISED Rosaline. Ever since I saw Leonardo DiCaprio […]

This book started out slow for me. It took a while for me to warm up to Lily, but eventually I got there. Like other female characters of JLA’s, Lily was full of some good snark and I think that is what finally got me. Lily is one kick-ass girl who hardly ever gets into a situation that she can’t get herself out of. Though, that doesn’t mean she doesn’t have a guardian angel looking […]

September 20, 2013 1 Comment Regina

“Faster, Lionheart, you little stud-pony, faster!” If Stardust was a woman (or a man), s/he would be fast, easy, and funny. This book showed up on Amazon’s Best Seller list, so I shrugged and thought “why not”. A few chapters in, I almost ditched it because I felt like I was losing brain cells. Then, I turned on the television and proceeded to watch Hardcore Pawn. I decided that was quite ironic, and went back […]

I kept track of my reactions to the book, Shark Out of Water, by Jenn Cooksey as I read. This image pretty much sums up the whole book, and if you’ve read it. You’ll totally get it. I absolutely LOVE this series. I came across Shark Bait when I was scouring through the bowels of Amazon in September of 2012 looking for something, ANYTHING interesting to read. Finally after pages and pages of books…the (original) […]

You can find my review of  Introductions (The Academy #1) here. This book had me ready to rip my clothes off. Sang and the boys are back with a bang, and these are the sexiest First Days of school that I’ve ever attended. In book one of this series we learn that the boys will be infiltrating Sang’s public school. Sang is still having to dodge bullets to hang out with the boys, but she […]

This third book in the Roswell High series proves again that Melinda’s writing and story telling are just as good, if not better, than in the first book. Things start getting a little more crazy, even by Roswell standards in The Seeker, and we learn a lot about our favorite alien-hybrids. In this book, Isabel is still struggling to get over Nikolas’s untimely death in The Wild One, and Alex  provides the shoulder she needs […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

“You’re my human.” Can I really be attracted to a gargoyle? That was the question I asked myself while debating whether or not to read this book. The mention of gargoyles struck up cemented images in my head of hog-nosed, crumbling stone creatures ready to tumble-down from their lofty perch and end me. Then, the memory of The Gargoyles cartoon from a decade ago hit me like a ton of bricks, and I recalled how […]
