The Intruder (Roswell High #5) by Melinda Metz

The Intruder (Roswell High #5) by Melinda Metz

The Intruder is probably my LEAST FAVORITE of all the Roswell High books. My disdain for this book doesn’t lie with the writing, it lies with Michael’s story line. In book five, we pick up right where we leave off in book four. Max has just been saved with the crystals from their ship, and connected with the collective consciousness of his planet. Unfortunately, we lose Ray Iburg at the end of book four, and […]

The weight of a whole new world lies on Ari’s shoulders. If you haven’t read Gravity, the first book in this blockbuster series, you can check out my review here. Looking for a fun Summer series that leaves you feeling like you just came out of an action-packed Sci-Fi film? Then search no more, because The Taking series by Melissa West fits the bill. In Hover (The Taking #2), we join Ari on her new […]

“Our race has a….collective consciousness, ” Ray explained. “It’s like a psychic Internet. All the knowledge, all the life experience, all the emotions of all of our people are there in the consciousness. When a young person reaches maturity, he or she is able to make the connection to the consciousness for the first time. This rite of passage is called the akino.” The Watcher is the most intense book yet in the Roswell High […]

I really enjoyed The Wild One, book two in the Roswell High series. It basically picks up right where The Outsider left off, and we are introduced to a new character named Nickolas. Now, if you have watched the Roswell show and read the books before, you know that the Nickolas in Melinda’s book is very different from the one in the show. Just as our three alien-hybrids, Max, Michael, and Isabel, are getting comfortable […]

      “Until now, I’ve never loved anyone except Aurora. It’s more than his music, more than even the smell of his skin. More than the way his body is like a magnet calling all the iron in my blood. He’s a drug that’s hooked me on the very first trip. “   Do you remember the hard, black, book sized  journals you had to keep in high-school if you were in photography or […]

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 […]

 The Antidote by St. Vincent Dante gets ready to this song. 🙂 Contrary to popular belief, Dante Walker is a little piece of Heaven on Earth.    Hey, guys. My name’s Regina. A while back I read this book called The Collector. One of my homegirls said I would like it, so I gave it a shot.  Dante flippin’ Walker. I really didn’t want to like this guy. I heard he gave Daemon Black from […]

I came across Shark Bait when I was scouring through the bowels of Amazon in September of 2012 thinking that I finally read everything there is to be read on Amazon when I found Shark Bait. It caught my eye and I took a gander at it and thought it sounded interesting so I bought it. I instantly got hooked and I don’t think I put my iPad down til I finished the book. Shark […]

ARC Review: Facade (The Games Series #2) by Nyrae Dawn

June 15, 2013 0 Comments Erin

I started this book not even knowing it was a sequel. I didn’t find out until about halfway through that it was book 2 in a series and I only found out because I was looking at it on Goodreads and saw that it was apart of the Game series. So that, I think, is a good thing about this book: You can read it without having read the first book, Charade, in the series. […]

“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 […]

Man, what happened to Rush? Is it me or is he like seriously WHIPPED? This book didn’t have a whole lot going on..I think it’s mostly just for Abbi to tie up Blaire & Rush’s story and then introduce some new characters that I do believe we will be seeing again in the future. 😉 First we met Harlow, Nan’s uber-conservative, sweet and innocent half-sister. Next, we meet ‘Oh Captain, My Captain.’ Although we really […]

I totally picked up the first book in this series because the glossy purple and black cover called to me. The almost alliteration of A’s in the title pleased my nerdy side, and the elegant looking woman on the cover was someone I wouldn’t mind living vicariously through. Already sold on the aesthetic appeal of the cover, I read the blurb on the back and gave a little squeal at the name Tristan (one of our main […]

This book was highly entertaining! It had me laughing non-stop. It also gave me some food for thought on any future break-ups, including some Steps/Rules that maybe we should all remember to follow in the future concerning possible new relationships, break ups or life in general. 😉 This was a light, funny read and I really enjoyed it. I’m glad I was given the opportunity to read and review it. 😉

Regina’ s Review: Spirit was a bit of a ride for me. For most of this story I felt like I was breathing with cinder blocks on my chest, waiting for the next drop. I felt like I was behind a glass wall, screaming at Hunter to make the right decisions. I wanted an insta-stick worm hole that I could toss on the wall and step through to guide his thoughts.  This roller coaster ride of […]

Regina’ s Review: That moment when you’re reading a book, and a couple of chapters in something “clicks” and leaves you <insert sharp intake of breath here> Breathless? Yeah, this installment in the Elemental series gives bold significance to the title from the start. This book had a different feel than the rest for me. I felt more like a voyeur, vicariously experiencing something forbidden through the thoughts of Nick Merrick, Gabriel’s identical twin. Nick is […]

Book Review: Spark (Elemental #2) by Brigid Kemmerer

May 25, 2013 2 Comments Regina

Regina’s Review: Gabriel Merrick has consumed me. Gabriel Merrick starts out as a guilty pleasure. Like a song you hear on the radio that you hate, but can’t get it out of your head so you end up actually liking it.  On first impression, he is a (very attractive) prig and deserves to be slapped for his crude humor and ne’er do well ways. But smart girls like me (and Brigid Kemmerer) know there’s always some sexy […]

I must confess that I almost did not read Seduction and Snacks because I read the title and thought it was gonna focus on food “in the bedroom” and that concept totally makes me want to vomit. Here is where I tell you I kicked myself because I was SO wrong and I am SO glad I picked up this book. It would be a huge mistake to miss out on this saucy literary gem […]
