  • Betrayal on Feb. 23, 2012

    What do we read about in Regency romances: A battered, abused heroine-check! A cynical rakish hero-check! The cruel world making it impossible for them to come together-check! The most villainous snake about to marry the heroine-check! Really good friends of the couple-check! This novel had it all! Don't get me wrong, I really liked it too. Another thing I liked was that it was not a heavy weight and yet he author managed to write a good book and I didn't feel being rushed. Yes, maybe it is time for romances to have heroes who actually LISTEN to the heroine and for heroines who don't forgive the guy every offense just because they're in love. But this novel is a good read for all fans of regency romances!
  • Awakening the Nightmare on Feb. 26, 2012

    Amazing book! It is more UF than PNR. I loved how Nick was the one doing the wooing (if it can be called that) and how he seemed to respect her privacy. I really liked Cory's character-how kickass and selfless she was and still unsure about her control. The story was exactly the right length but it does have potential to be developed into a series. I would love to read more about Edge and whether he finds his match. And whether it goes alright for the Alpha of the werewolf pack and Kendall. The humor was done well. The mystery surrounding Cory's lineage only made the book more interesting. And there was just the right amount of love scenes!
  • The Lists on March 11, 2012

    This was a fun, erotic book. It wasn't too lengthy or too short. There wasn't much romance, though. The story ended on a happy note and would work as a good pick-me-up when you're in the mood for something light and need a break after some heavy reading!
  • The Zombie Story The Chronicles of Orlando on March 17, 2012

    I enjoyed reading this book for various reasons: it had zombies in it! it was YA but there were no love triangles or romance in it! the whole zombies evolving idea was good and may turn into something even better in the next book! However: there were some misspelled words here and there. the events in the story don't gel together. I think this would be a good book for any young readers who are just beginning to learn how cool zombies are!
  • Zollocco: A Novel of Another Universe on April 03, 2012

    I got this book to read and review from Making Connections: Link to the book thread I liked a lot of things about this book: it was beautifully written the world building was extensive the customs of different places which the MC visits were well thought out and explained-my favorite place was the country with two types of governments and the idea of stealing being accepted as a society norm was intriguing Also loved all of the scenes in the forests, especially Zollocco I just had one issue with the book and that was its length. After reading 3/4 of the book, the remaining length seemed exhaustive The book makes us think about what we're doing to our world today-if only there was a Zollocco here who'd fight back!
  • How Gods Bleed on April 05, 2012

    ** spoiler alert ** Loved this book! the book is about people belonging to a city that is the first line of defense for humans. If the werewolves ever tried to take over the human empire, this would be where the first battle would take place. Naturally, the people living in such a place have to be extraordinary-always alert and ready to defend. Add to that a king who would do anything to ensure his people's survival and warriors who worship him. Could it be more awesome?Yes, it can. The king not only wants to win every war, he also plans to make the werewolves fear him and his warriors. The tricks and maneuvers that the king uses to instill fear in the werewolves are just.. wow! Then there is Cada Varl- the coolest immortal you'll ever read about. He's the best and yet he never gloats but just goes on being his rockin' self! And of course, the 6 Helluvan warriors (poor 7th best warrior) were just that..one helluva adventure!
  • The End Begins: The Nine on April 28, 2012

    I received this book for free, in exchange of an honest review, through the Making Connections group. Get your copy here What I liked about the book: the atmosphere of the world after the war-nobody knows whom to trust the presence of religion in such a world-the book had its share of devout men and the nutcases who killed in the name of religion I loved how confused Vincent was, regarding his cyborg-ness. He didn't know whether he was alive or had died when they decided to replace parts of him with machine! James' character-his cocky attitude and the humor he brought to the story made him like him a lot. What I did not like: there was almost no humor in the book. I mean I get it that this was supposed to be a serious story but a little humor would have gone a long way. the events individually were good to read about but they didn't come together like one big story. the romance between Cass and Caleb felt forced. I also didn't like Cass' character at all. She felt too inhuman and unfeeling to me.
  • Deadly Obsession (Deadly Vices, Book 1) on April 29, 2012

    I got this book for free, in exchange of an honest review, from the group Making Connections. Get your copy here My Thoughts: the love scenes between Nic and "Lorna" were hot and sweet at the same time but the instant love was a problem for me. I could understand Lauren being attracted because Nic was a movie star but Nic came as a wannabe shifter eager to claim his mate. the humor kept the story entertaining and all the supporting characters were good. the book was the exact perfect length and the ending was done perfectly, however, like many readers I guessed the identity of the stalker from the very first page. how Nic comes to realize how selfish he was being about his secret and his unfair treatment of Rachel I also liked Lauren's reaction when Nic was trying to seduce Vivian. The book is an easy short read that you'll enjoy curling up with.
  • Undermountain (The Undermountain Saga #1) on June 16, 2012

    The action started from the get go and it never stopped. It has been so long since I enjoyed a YA novel this much and didn't end up wanting to hit every character over the head-well, maybe Shiv, at times! My favorite character was Grizz for obvious reasons. TogYip were cute too. The transformation that each teenager goes through by the end of their journey (as Harvin was kind to observe for us) made the story even better. The romance or sprinklings of it was just the right amount. There were a few spelling mistakes which I noticed though. The descriptions of the city of Bigfeet were sufficient without being boring. I loved every bit of it!
  • The Emerald City on June 21, 2012

    This was such a refreshing book! Another YA novel that I’d recommend to those of us who aren’t too into them. The book had everything: a teenager who acted her age, was smart and kicked butt-not dumb enough to dismiss the strange ongoings in her school like most YA protagonists would have done. characters that kept me interested throughout-Nick’s zombieness made him all the more fun and Lydia was cute. the right beginning and a balanced ending-the book wasn’t too long either. there were some spelling mistakes, yes. the humor was done just right. It was fun, witty and a quick read-I just couldn’t put the book down till I was done reading.
  • Beginnings, a YA Paranormal Romance (Prequel to The Guardians of Vesturon) on July 27, 2012

    A short, cute love story. It was love at first sight for Rowan and Annalise. He was mesmerized by her beauty and she was amazed at the lengths he would go to be with her. Rowan ‘s behavior towards the Elders and his father’s response to it were both hilarious. Enjoyed it!
  • Tales from Brookgreen: Gardens, Folklore, Ghost Stories, and Gullah Folktales in the South Carolina Lowcountry on Aug. 12, 2012

    The Mistress of Brookgreen: Reads a bit like E.Nesbit or Enid Blyton stories. A simple introduction about a capable lady who fell in love, married someone else and then fell in love again to marry the man she loved. Don’t Tief! A sweet story about how stealing rice from your boss can't be a crime! The White Lady of the Hermitage: The story tells us about how the White Lady came to haunt the Hermitage. Ghost Ships: Would you build a beach house with the pillars of an abandoned Church? Brother Gator and His Friends: A few short fables about the animals of the swamp. Crab Boy’s Ghost: Cousin Corrie was too scared too try to catch a Stone Crab and with good reason! The Wachesaw Ghosts: An ancient Indian burial ground is discovered along with their ghosts. The Great Sandy Island Expedition: How the residents were involved in putting together a folktales book. Beautiful stories written in a style that begs to be heard, instead of being read.
  • Chaos Children on Aug. 14, 2012

    I got this from Smashwords and it wasn't mentioned that this was a prequel. The author has a way of drawing you in to the story. Even though, I loved the part about how the first vampire came into being, I couldn't connect to the rest of the characters. It might be because I haven't read Solstice Night. The concluding love scene was just meh too.
  • Nordic Fairies (Novella series) on Aug. 15, 2012

    What I liked about it: Interesting concept that the story's based on-both sides hire people and offer incentives. the sweet love scenes going on between the MC. the very real possibility that Trym might be working for the dark side. the mystery behind the lady in the jewel shop. What I didn't like: there was no explanation about the two factions of fairies other than one was bad and the other good. I would have liked some info about them and who led them.
  • Raisinheart on Aug. 15, 2012

    The anthology comprises of three short stories about Jimmy-a loner and a nerd. Magic: How do you get rid of a friend you don't like? By making a "Make-Out Chamber" for them! Awards: How do you get rid of a bully? By making friends with a jock, of course! Glory: A friend's betrayal. A story with a sad ending and my favorite out of all three.
  • Young Subway Stalkers on Aug. 15, 2012

    Three short stories in this bundle. Sexy Teenage Vampires: An old man who has "already seen everything" comes across something he hasn't seen before! Return of the Sexy Teenage Vampires: A man gets to meet the bloodsucking duo while waiting for his train. Attack of the Sexy Teenage Vampires: Even vampires have to keep up with the current trends-fangs were so last season!
  • The Goat and the Heathen (2nd ed.) on Aug. 16, 2012

    A short erotic romance. There's very little story development but the synopsis of the book doesn't promise one. The romance between the MC is sweet and hot. The roommate was funny and quirky and I liked her.
  • The Part-Time People on Aug. 16, 2012

    What David wrote in his application was by far the most interesting thing in this story and I would have loved it, if the author had went on with that. We are never told what becomes of Gwen and I would have liked to know where she ended up. Not one of the author's best.
  • Catch on Aug. 17, 2012

    What I liked about it: all that action from the get go-even though, the book wasn't a big one, the action made it feel like an even quicker read. loved how Catch got involved in the kidnapping. I liked how the male lead was flawed just like the bad guy and had to deal with his past every day. Loved how Hallie showed backbone and her inability to let her father go, even when she came to know who he was. What I didn't like: the little alien girl- that part was just sprung on us. I'm so sure Stark isn't dead and am hoping we'll see him again, if there's a sequel. The govt. lady letting Catch and Hallie go seemed improbable but again, if there will be a sequel.. A fast paced thriller and I liked it!
  • Knock on the Noggin and Other Stories on Sep. 20, 2012

    The Silent Girlfriend: Scientists discover that there is such a thing as a "soul" and that it doesn't leave, when a person dies. It sticks around. 4 stars. The Goldfish: Second story in this collection. Henry's girlfriend loves him a lot and he loves her back. Too bad, one of them is a Goldfish! 2 stars. Knock on the Noggin': What would you do, if a beautiful girl fell from the sky and told you she loved you? 3 stars.
  • Between The Land And The Sea on Sep. 20, 2012

    A book about a half mermaid, half human teenage girl with a difficult choice to make. What I liked: Both the male and female leads were sensible characters and it was like a breath of fresh air. The humor in the story, mostly because of Cruz and Megan made the story more fun. What I didn’t like:: The same ol’ trope about the hottest guy in the school falling for the new girl has been done too many times. If you want to read a sweet, funny YA book without love triangles (or vampires), check this one out.
  • Adventures In Funeral Crashing (Funeral Crashing Mysteries #1) on Sep. 23, 2012

    The book's based on an intriguing topic and I loved that. It had everything a YA novel requires: a not-so popular female lead who reads (shocking, I know) and has problems at home which make her weirder the hottest guy in school the estranged bitchy mean girl/ex bff I just had one small issue with it and that was this book is yet another example of the current trend. The trend that divides kids into the popular and not-popular groups. I know that's how it is at school but shouldn't authors try to make girls see their uniqueness, instead of emphasizing that the female lead isn't popular, so she's weird? Even then, I had a good time reading this book. Oh and I liked Troy much better than Ethan hehe
  • The Scarlet Dagger (The Red Sector Chronicles, #1) on Oct. 01, 2012

    I have to say this book surprised me. I went in expecting nothing and then had a lot of fun reading it. Its not a short book but I finished it in a few hours because it kept me hooked. Aside from a few spelling mistakes-which really put me off books- and a few other things, I liked the story a lot. Sloane is a kick-ass character and I enjoyed reading about her. What I missed was the lack of details of on the side characters. We only realized they were in the story when they were included in a scene to interact with Sloane. I loved the concept of a world populated by people who weren't quite human, yet not vampire. The other thing that bugged me was who Nero turned out to be. I don't know why I was disappointed with his identity, maybe I expected it to be Orion. But I loved the little tid bit about Sloane's dad having been of the vampire bloodline. This was also another place where I realized that we were told next to nothing about him. It was just thrust upon us in the last pages or so that he had rage issues. I was like huh? When did THAT happen? Lets see what the sequel brings with it.
  • Seeds of Discovery: Dusk Gate Chronicles on Oct. 05, 2012

    What I liked about it: the book starts off like a typical YA novel-high school, popular guys, not-so popular girl- but then it surprises you. how sensible the female lead was. it was the perfect length. ended at just the right place. What I didn't like about it: lack of details-I never thought I'd been the way to notice that! The flora & fauna unique to the kingdom were not described in too much detail. A good book to curl with and spend some hours of relaxed reading.
  • Nordic Fairies (Novella series) on Nov. 06, 2012

    What I liked about it: Interesting concept that the story's based on-both sides hire people and offer incentives. the sweet love scenes going on between the MC. the very real possibility that Trym might be working for the dark side. the mystery behind the lady in the jewel shop. What I didn't like: there was no explanation about the two factions of fairies other than one was bad and the other good. I would have liked some info about them and who led them.
  • Temporary Monsters on Nov. 11, 2012

    The story is written well and enough action happens, even though this is a novella. I liked the dark ambiance of the world created in the story but I do think a little background about the world existing parallel to this one was needed. I mean, I couldn't understand, if everybody knew about that world or was it a secret. And if everybody knew about it, why was the appearance of a vampire such a shock? The ending felt a little abrupt to me too. I'd like to read the next one before I decide.
  • The Second Dragdani Prophecy (Part 1 of the Dragdani Prophecies) re-edited on Dec. 28, 2012

    What I liked about this book: the beginning was sweet and interested me enough to read ahead the humor which sprung up in unlikely places and kept the tale from being too dark- the exchange between Delsani and Peter about "roadrunner" was one such scene. the relationship between John and Helene how the different factions seemed to mistrust each other, even though they were on the same side and the funny situations it led to. What I didn't like: quite a few spelling mistakes-obvious enough to put me off the dialogue felt awkward in a lot of places like a lot of first books, this one contains scenes that could be left out or happen off stage, as well as, repetitive conversations the Council plans to mess with Peter's memories and his mom agrees to it? Peter's personality is inconsistent-sometimes we're told he's shy in front of strangers and at other times, he behaves in the exact opposite way! the scene where Peter starts to confront his bully of a teacher- it breaks off and there's this huge info dump and then we're thrown back into the scene again. What I found confusing: how could nothing be known about the Valcotas? why was there a lot of misunderstanding about the prophecies/ wizard history?
  • Angel Evolution on Jan. 24, 2013

    What I liked: I really liked the author’s idea of combining evolution with angels & demons mythology-however, the issue of the snake that started it all needs further delving in. Maybe it will be touched upon in the sequels. Of course, the superiority complex that all angels seemed to be a prey of and to what lengths they’d go to keep it that way was another interesting bit. both the angel and the demon did NOT fall in love with the heroine- very refreshing in a YA novel. What I didn’t like: the treatment of Gargoyles-if I’m correct, they’re the result of unions between two angels or two demons which makes them their offsprings…sub intelligent but still their kids. Why are they treated like animals by both sides? And not only are the supes okay with that, so were the humans? Taylor took a lot of things too calmly and she switches between hating and loving Gabe a little too much & too easily. This is a fast paced YA novel with a unique spin on angel/demon myth. I liked it a lot!
  • There Can't Be Shadows Without Light (Druantia's Children - Book Three) on Jan. 26, 2013

    I really liked this book for several reasons: there seemed to be something happening all the time! the humor was done very well. even though the family had magical powers, they also seemed to have limits! the story kept me interested throughout and I liked the myriad of characters involved in it. My favorites were Thymane & Randy. the book was the third in the series and I haven't read the first two books, not once did I feel clueless-it may be more enjoyable by readers following the series but I had a lot of fun reading it anyway. However, the books needs editing and this kept me from rating it higher. Readers who would like a fun fast paced book should try this one!
  • Sweet Blood of Mine on Jan. 31, 2013

    What I liked: the cover there was a last twist to what Justin was, even by the time we thought we knew what he was. it is a YA story that many young adults would want to read because we all like a nerd to stud story. in places, where Justin sounds his age, the humor was really good. What I didn’t like: Justin does not sound like a teenager-I could pretty much “see” the author talking instead of a teenage boy. Elyssa becomes quite bitchy after figuring out who Justin was. Didn’t know why she would react that way. An interesting paranormal YA novel with lots of humor thrown in & no love triangles!
  • Afterlife (The Undermountain Saga #2) on Feb. 14, 2013

    What I really about this series so far is that these are intelligent YA books that don’t treat the reader like kids. Another of my favorite things is that the protagonists don’t seem to be perfect – Danny is seen to struggle with doubts concerning his girlfriend and realizes that if he cheats on her, he will be responsible for the consequences. Breyona,on the other hand, is learning that good intentions aren’t enough to make wise decisions when it comes to power. Shiv realizes that while acquisition of knowledge is a good thing, the path chosen to acquire it is very important. The books are about teenagers who must find their own path while dealing with issues much bigger than them. However, this book won’t be as effective, if read without reading the first one.
  • Water on Feb. 20, 2013

    What I liked: the whole idea about people close to nature & how they could draw energy from it was interesting. the story started well and kept my interest as it progressed. the cover is really pretty! What I didn't like: the Seven were short on funds...so much so that they didn't eat too well most days, yet they could travel all around the world? I don't think causing an increase in the phytoplankton population can be that easy and even if it was, there are always consequences when humans think they know better than nature. Kaitlyn's attraction to Micah was too insta-love for me! She accepts everything too easily-kidnapping, almost maiming, almost rape, killing of other Gaias etc. How nobody, even wise Cato, could see how unstable Shawn really was. I understood Micah's reasons for what he did in the greenhouse & why Shawn hatched that plan too. What I didn't get was how Kaitlyn could forgive either of them.
  • New Myths of the Feminine Divine on Feb. 27, 2013

    Women Within the Earth: ★ A woman led by her dreams goes to wake up Antigone. Crayon Tree: ★★ All the vegetation on Earth has died. The Crayon Tree gives humans a second chance.

Bed Frame Riffs: ★★★ Talking beds, aliens & research grants! A collection of stories that kept me interested and was fun to read. All the stories focused on at least one strong female character-there were researchers, dancers, swordswomen, deities, artists & sorceresses.
  • The Romance of the Unicorn on March 15, 2013

    What I liked: the myriad of magical creatures we meet-from unicorns & griffins to trolls, goblins & even luminescent fungus-okay the last one isn't magical! that Elayne played by her own rules & didn't need to be rescued. What I didn't like: the book needs some editing "damsels" was the only word used when referring to women the characters were seen calling out to a "Goddess" but we're never who the deity is or shown any religious practices When you pick up this book, bear in mind that it is an adventurous romp and you'll need to devote a lot of time to it.
  • Starkiller (The Undermountain Saga #3) on May 02, 2013

    What I liked about it: the issues faced by the teenage characters: Breyona's struggle as Nefer's nature took over, Shiv & his internal battle, the effect of Wa's death on his friends, the book doesn't just focus on Danny but on all the teenagers, a nice wrap up of the trilogy What I didn't like: Catching up with GorVit (who seemed unkillable) got a little tedious. I was sorry to see this series end & I'd recommend to all readers of YA
  • Illusions & Reality on May 26, 2013

    Your hand in mine: The last conversation between two friends. Thirsty Boots: A tavern wench & a bard dream of a life together. The Ballad of St. Anne's Reel: A magical ballad that brings people together. A Kiss on the Hand: A son who doesn't want to let his dead mother go finds an alternative.

An Act of Faith: A man who sold his father to the Inquisition faces his punishment. The Salt of the Earth: What happens after you've died and are stuck in the in-between. My favorites were "A Kiss on the Hand"-though the story should have ended with the engagement ring idea, "Karmic Justice" & "The Salt of the Earth".
  • Midnight Marriage: A Georgian Historical Romance on Sep. 09, 2013

    *Well written & well edited * Free on Smashwords * Cute romance with a misunderstood rakish hero & a different from other girls heroine with a tarnished reputation. * I liked how the couple overcame all the odds which led to a happy, if typical, ending.
  • The Baptist: A Psychological Thriller on Nov. 27, 2013

    What I liked: the book caught my attention from the start. I liked all the parts that happened inside the asylum. Marguerite/Mary/Alice was my favorite & remain so up to the end. the whole Feargal/Joe mystery was really interesting & done well. What I didn't like: the second half of the book was just all right. Made me skip & skim my way to more interesting parts. the parts with Alice & John living in Kingsmead became boring quite fast.
  • The Dragon of Doughton Park on July 12, 2014

    What I liked: Cliff's character is fun reading about - he chews on stuff and hesitates making rash decisions but he ends up exactly that! the Inner Circle pack wasn't stupid - they guessed Danielle might be spying for her master etc Nicole & her problems with Cody seemed genuine - she's an Omega & he's a dominant, things shouldn't be smooth in their relationship & they weren't how Cliff realized that they didn't have much of a plan when the packs attacked the vampire nightclubs & that it was luck that got them through. It thus becomes essential for any battles in the future books to be meticulously planned out. the twist at the end - can't wait to see where Claire's been up to! What I didn't like: Cliff's soft spot for Danielle has become irritating - when will he get over it? There wasn't much indication in the first half of the book about Cliff being hung up on Claire and suddenly he just was? I would have liked some more details about the Dragon & his sidekick but I'm pretty sure, we'll learn more in the next book. A good follow up to an interesting book!
