Think. Pink. And Paladins. This book filled my head with all kinds of glittery, pastel, satin-y, sequined images punctuated with spiked heels and daggers. Not just because of the ballerina-pink cover but because of the bouncy, bubble gum like dialogue and scenes. Rachel Hawkins says she pitched this book to her agent as Legally Blonde meets Terminator but I would  pitch it as Legally Blonde meets 1992’s Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Harper Price is a smart […]

The Distance Between Us by Kasie West

The Distance Between Us by Kasie West

April 17, 2014 4 Comments Regina

There’s nothing like meeting the man of your dreams…. at a doll store. Caymen Meyers lives above and works in a porcelain-doll store owned by her mother, tucked away in quiet, wealthy town. In RL we all know that anyone that lives and works with creepy dolls would be possessed or psychotic, but this is fiction so Caymen is a smart, down-to-earth, functional young lady. She has an extremely dry and sarcastic sense of humor. […]

I’m writing this short and sweet review because I received an ARC and I am required to. Erin already posted about WHK and you can check out her more in depth review here. You can check out my Psych Ward file on Jennifer here. I read Bitter Sweet Love and White Hot Kiss in one fell swoop. I fell in love with gargoyles in fiction last summer when I read Page Morgan’s The Beautiful and […]

I’m like a Sofia Coppola film. I love pop music, pop culture, trendy clothes, and glittery, sparkly, never-ending-shimmery things. On sunny days you can find me driving to work with my sun roof open, jamming Britney Spears and admiring how my freshly painted nails contrast with my gold steering wheel cover. The truth is, I LOVE bubble gum pink, Chanel lipstick, and pretty things. So does Gia. Sounds superficial, right? But zoom in on the […]

You can check out my reviews for the other books in The Academy Series here and a spotlight on C.L. Stone here. You might want to steal away for a day to read this book. Dun, dun,  DAA DAA, dun, dun,  DAA DAA, dun DUN! The first chapter of Thief reminded me of the Mission Impossible theme song. It was clever, exciting, and perfect. I found myself imagining certain scenes of Thief set to this music […]

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 […]

Fire & Flood: Victoria Scott Reviews Her Own Book!

February 26, 2014 1 Comment Regina

        Sometimes authors CANNOT RESIST picking up a copy of their own book at their local bookstore. Yep. They wrote the darn book but they want to experience it again with fresh eyes, and pretend they are reading it for the first time. This psychological phenomenon leads these same authors to want to review their own books as well. The following is what happens when they do: In Which Victoria Scott Reviews […]

After Eden by Helen Douglas

After Eden by Helen Douglas

February 3, 2014 6 Comments Regina

          I have reddish-brown hair and the palest skin that blushes fiercely, all the way from my chest to my forehead. Eden is our main chick and she shares her name with a couple of other things besides the title in this tale of time travel and romance.  I found her to be a sensible and likable character; a fair skinned beauty who makes the same mistake most  high school girls […]

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

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

January 30, 2014 4 Comments Regina

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 […]

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

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. […]

  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 […]

Okay, this review is way over due! I read Friends vs Family back in August, so forgive me if things are a little vague. You can check out my reviews for book one here, and book two here. If Sang died and was reincarnated, I swear she would be a kitten. She’s been in every Academy boy’s lap, and they can’t stop petting her. Friends vs Family is true to its name, and in this […]
