Review: The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry and Richard Howard (Translator)

Review: The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry and Richard Howard (Translator)

“But eyes are blind. You have to look with your heart.” I’ve read The Little Prince many, many times. My mom had a beautiful, small hardback edition of this when I was small and it always fascinated me for some reason. I haven’t attempted to read The Little Prince in… Read more »

Review: Guarding His Obsession by Alexa Riley

Review: Guarding His Obsession by Alexa Riley

OMG. I HATED the heroine in this book. Hated. I hated every.single.thing. about the heroine, for the most part. Every time she had dialogue I wanted to rip off her lips and sew her mouth-hole shut. Permanently. The aggravation I felt knew no bounds. In fact, I was completely unable… Read more »

Review: Dragon Time by Ruth Nestvold

Review: Dragon Time by Ruth Nestvold

Note: Dragon Time is only available as a standalone from Smashwords. Amazon (and other e-bookstores) sells an anthology of Ms Nestvold’s short stories that includes Dragon Time. I received this free copy of Dragon Time via Smashwords in March 2011, qualifying it for my 2016 The Mt. TBR Struggle is… Read more »

Review: The Other Half of the Sky (Feral Astrogators #1) edited by Athena Andreadis and Kay T. Holt (3/4)

I discovered The Other Half of the Sky in 2014 when the controversy regarding long time hate blogger and new author WinterFox aka RequiresHate aka Benjanun Sriduangkaew. As I was reading up on all of the drama, I noticed there were some decent looking authors being mentioned (the authors were… Read more »

Review: Beauty and the Biker (Ghost Riders MC #2) by Alexa Riley

Review: Beauty and the Biker (Ghost Riders MC #2) by Alexa Riley

I’ve read a shitton of Alexa Riley at this point. I thought I was…numbed to AR due to the extreme amounts of her I read. OMG. I was NOT read for this one. Beauty and the Biker is quite disgusting on several different levels. Several. And I thought Pulling Her… Read more »

Review: Mr and Mrs (Alexa Riley Promises #1) by Alexa Riley

Review: Mr and Mrs (Alexa Riley Promises #1) by Alexa Riley

Let me start by being 100% honest: I disliked this book quite a bit. This is a new series by Alexa Riley where it seems she’ll be rehashing old Harlequin Romance tropes. Amnesia + a secret baby is most certainly an old school HR trope. And I always hated it…. Read more »

Review: Freshman by Madison Faye

Review: Freshman by Madison Faye

Wow. So. How did we end up here? O_O Twice Driven and Kindle Unlimited. That’s how. Freshman was one of the three free books in the back of Twice Driven. Freshman (like Twice Driven) sounds like an Alexa Riley book. It is not. What Freshman is is poorly edited. And… Read more »

Review: Twice Driven by Madison Faye

Review: Twice Driven by Madison Faye

So. I picked this one up because I read a shitton of Alexa Riley and this sounded a lot like an Alexa Riley book. It sounds like an Alexa Riley book…but it doesn’t read like an Alexa Riley book. At all. O_O Here’s the thing: Alexa Riley writes the same… Read more »

Review: Pulling Her Trigger (Ghost Riders MC #1) by Alexa Riley

Review: Pulling Her Trigger (Ghost Riders MC #1) by Alexa Riley

I think I’ve become numb. I’ve read waaay too much AR at this point. I need an intervention. So. This book. It’s AR’s version of a motorcycle club (MC) book – but “safe” (meaning no cheating, rape, abuse, and an HEA). For those who don’t read MC books, imagine the… Read more »
