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: A Heart of Ice (Araneae Nation 0.5) by Hailey Edwards

Review: A Heart of Ice (Araneae Nation 0.5) by Hailey Edwards

I’m not really sure how to rate and review A Heart of Ice. It’s a novella for the Araneae Nation series (starts with A Hint of Frost (Araneae Nation #1)) – and I *think* it occurs before A Hint of Frost. A Heart of Ice is very much a “bridge”… Read more »

Review: The Atrocity Archives (The Laundry Files #1) by Charles Stross

  Note: This review is for The Atrocity Archive – the short story included in the book “The Concrete Jungle” will be reviewed separately. How can I describe The Atrocity Archive? What I’ve been telling people thus far is to imagine Sheldon from The Big Bang Theory, take away his… Read more »

I’m not really sure how I feel about “Questing Beast.” It’s…pretty… 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 »

Review: Snowed in with the Billionaire by Caroline Anderson

Review: Snowed in with the Billionaire by Caroline Anderson

I really enjoyed this one but it was so angsty. Not quite angsty enough for me to have the feels but I did feel so sad for both characters. Georgina (Georgie) and Sebastian were childhood sweethearts but Georgie left Sebastian when he…suddenly changed. They were both heartbroken but handled it… Read more »

Review: A Girl Less Ordinary by Leah Ashton

Review: A Girl Less Ordinary by Leah Ashton

I started reading Romance books as a very little kid – sometime in elementary school – and the majority of the Romance books I read at that time were Harlequins. My mom had tons of Harlequins around the house and I read them all. By the time I reached high… Read more »

Review: Otherwise Engaged by Amanda Quick

Review: Otherwise Engaged by Amanda Quick

Sadly, this book was rather “meh” for me. I like Amanda Quick as an author and I’ve read several of her books – my favorite being Scandal. The parts of Otherwise Engaged that worked the most for me was Amity and her sister Penny’s relationship and the agency that both… Read more »

Review: Stranded with the Tycoon by Sophie Pembroke

Review: Stranded with the Tycoon by Sophie Pembroke

Recently I stopped by the library to pick up a few books I placed on hold. I decided to wander around the stacks a bit – purely out of nostalgia as this library is NOT well appointed – and I ran across a handful of Romance novels sitting on a… Read more »
