Review: Calling on Dragons (Enchanted Forest Chronicles #3) by Patricia C. Wrede

Review: Calling on Dragons (Enchanted Forest Chronicles #3) by Patricia C. Wrede

Ugh. I did not enjoy this one as much as others. I’m only giving 3 stars (and not 2.5) because the read wasn’t the worse – but the ending KILLED most of my enjoyment. The first two books of the Enchanted Forest Chronicles really set the tone for the series…. Read more »

Review: Snowflakes and Silver Linings (The Gingerbread Girls #3) by Cara Colter

Review: Fate’s Edge (The Edge #3) by Ilona Andrews

Review: Fate’s Edge (The Edge #3) by Ilona Andrews

I really don’t know what to say about Fate’s Edge. I guess I can start by saying that the very dark turn that The Edge series took in Bayou Moon has continued with Fate’s Edge (though I feel that Bayou Moon is the darker of the two books). Fate’s Edge… Read more »

Review: A Pregnancy, a Party & a Proposal by Teresa Carpenter

Sometimes when I sit down to write a review…I don’t know what to say. Usually its for one of two reasons: either the book was so entertaining I don’t know where to to start…or the book was so underwhelming that I barely remember reading it. A Pregnancy, a Party &… Read more »
