Review: Dear Aaron by Mariana Zapata

Review: Dear Aaron by Mariana Zapata

Dear Aaron was sweet and lovely, to be honest. Dear Aaron is written in email and messenger format for the majority of the book. And it got to be just a little annoying after some time. But I adored Aaron and I loved Ruby. While I really enjoyed Dear Aaron,… Read more »

Review: The Cloud Roads (The Books of the Raksura #1) by Martha Wells

Review: The Cloud Roads (The Books of the Raksura #1) by Martha Wells

I don’t have a lot of experience with Martha Wells – one short story (of the Raksura) and that’s about it. So, I had no real expectations as to how I would enjoy this book. And I did. By the end of the book, I found The Cloud Roads very,… Read more »

Review: Old Man’s War (Old Man’s War #1) by John Scalzi

Review: Old Man’s War (Old Man’s War #1) by John Scalzi

I’ve followed Scalzi’s blog for years and I quite like the man. I think this is why I find it ironic that I’ve never read any of his work – until now. In the space of two months my bookclub has read two books by Scalzi…and I’ve enjoyed both. I… Read more »

Review: The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms (Inheritance Trilogy #1) by N.K. Jemisin

Review: The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms (Inheritance Trilogy #1) by N.K. Jemisin

I purchased my copy of The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms in Sept 2011. This means that The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms qualifies for my 2017 The Mt. TBR Struggle is Real! challenge at 5 years, 6 months. I think I’m still trying to parse my feelings toward my read of The Hundred… Read more »

Review: Here Kitty, Kitty (Magnus Pack #3) by Shelly Laurenston

Review: Here Kitty, Kitty (Magnus Pack #3) by Shelly Laurenston

Love it! Here, Kitty Kitty made me so happy! After spending quite some time being frustrated with book 2 (Go Fetch!), Here Kitty, Kitty more than makes up for the bullshit I dealt with. Here, Kitty Kitty was just pure fun. There is some type of plot it wasn’t as… Read more »

Review: His Little Troublemaker by Emily Tilton

Review: His Little Troublemaker by Emily Tilton

So. I really liked His Little Troublemaker! I admit to rolling my eyes a bit… …and to being squicked out a bit by the hero’s – Daniel – interest in the heroine’s…pre-pubescent-like body. …And to disliking (but appreciating the realness) of the hero thinking of lying on the heroine –… Read more »

Review: The Undying King by Grace Draven

Review: The Undying King by Grace Draven

“It’s no tale, girl, but the truth. Tineroth is real as is her king. His people once called him Cededa the Fair, then Cededa the Butcher, and then they called him no more. Only the carvings on Tineroth’s gates remember him and not by name. He drank the Waters and… Read more »

Review: Branding the Virgin by Alexa Riley (Cowboys & Virgins #1)

Review: Branding the Virgin by Alexa Riley (Cowboys & Virgins #1)

Branding the Virgin is pretty cute but it barely reminds me of Lassoing the Virgin Mail Order Bride – which I appreciate. I want to say that Branding the Virgin has a lot more plot in it than most of the recent AR works which makes me excited! *big grin*… Read more »

Women Destroy Science Fiction! Anthology Review: Like Daughter by Tananarive Due (Narrated by Jamye Méri Grant) *spoilers*

Women Destroy Science Fiction! Anthology Review: Like Daughter by Tananarive Due (Narrated by Jamye Méri Grant) *spoilers*

Trigger Warning: There is discussion of child molestation in the story and in this review. Like Daughter gutted me. It was unsettling and sad and just chock full of emotional WTF that I was in a bit of shock while reading. The MC of Like Daughter is Paige. Paige is… Read more »

Review: Stepbrother’s Rules by Renee Rose

Review: Stepbrother’s Rules by Renee Rose

Jeeze! This was hot, hot hot! and I enjoyed almost every bit of it. It was both sweet and hot. I loved Brad but I wasn’t quite as fond of LuAnn. Brad picks LuAnn up from school after she’s kicked out of the dorm for drinking, smoking and boys. Brad… Read more »
