The Book Diaries


I'm Italian, which means I'm loud, opinionated, passionate, and …. Did I say loud? I like reading all paranormal, horror, and fantasy type books. I spend my free time reading, writing reviews on my blog or on Goodreads, and watching some of my favorite shows like: Supernatural, Revenge, The Vampire Diaries, True Blood or The Office. I read an average of 100 books a year, and still find time to be a wife and mother of three. Some of my favorite authors are: Heather Hildenbrand, love her!, Angeline Kace, Dannika Dark, Patricia Briggs, Samatha Young, Charlaine Harris, Rachael Wade, and Nicole Harris just to name a few. One day I would love to pursue a career that would allow me to read all the time. So for all you authors out there that need readers/reviews, send them my way.

  • Wanderers of the Night on Nov. 13, 2012

    Wanderers of the Night picks right back up where All That We See or Seem left off. Tempest has added so much more to book 2 that you get sucked right in on page one. Lily is on her quest to rescue Lennan after being kidnapped by Ronan. With Larkin having left Lily, she is able to take a step back and look at where her heart should take her. Should it be with Ronan, Conall or Larkin. I know who my vote goes to but I will keep that to myself. In book one, Lily is just finding out who she really is and what her role is as the Dreamer. Lily is on a quest, a real quest and her first. What I liked most about book 2, Lily is stronger and we get to see her take charge of herself. She is not the timid, scared girl like in book 1. Yes, her love triangle is a strenuous one but oh is it a good one. Here we get to learn more of what role her new friends will play and have played in her former life. Just when you think you’ve got Ronan all figured out, he has blindsided us all. Ronan floats the fine line between good and bad, but you just don’t know which side he will end up on. Tempest has added so much more mystery, action and romance that have made her unique world addicting.
  • Dirty Blood on Nov. 13, 2012

    With all the wonderful reviews of Dirty Blood on the Internet, I figured I would throw mine in there as well. This was a little late for me considering I read this back in October. I loved it just as much then as I do now and will be forever a fan and follower of Heather. This was the first book I had read by Heather and she had me hooked immediately. I love things that go bump in the night, all the paranormal, fantasy especially werewolves. Heather's story was unique in the fact that she mixed werewolves along with the hunters. In her story they fight each other and co-exist, which added many layers to her story. Although I am a Wes fan now, when I read this I want to yell for Tara to run for the hills away from him, he's infuriating! He's so hot and cold with Tara that I feel so bad for her. Heather has given you action and adventure along with romance and suspense all wrapped into one. She is so good at adding mystery to her characters that you don't know whether they are good or bad which makes the end more of a surprise. Heather is one of the many great authors that you will want to continue following for many years. Enjoy!
  • The Impostor, A Love Story on Jan. 05, 2013 Ok, how hard is it to write a review on a book that you both loved and hated? Really hard. I enjoyed this story immensely but I hated the main character Nicole. Ugh, she was so smack worthy to me. So I can deal with the helpless, always needing to be saved female characters but Nicole was the most naive, hard headed character ever for me. Tiffany is a great writer, her story The Impostor, is so well written. She has the ability to keep the reader engaged in the story with such mystery and suspense. I never knew what was coming, or where she was going to go with the story. So my two favorite things that got this it's 4 Star review, was the originality of the story and the actual story itself. Tiffany really brings to light what a young single mother will do for their child, even though their determination might make them partially blind. I have admiration for anyone who is willing to sacrifice everything to make the life for their child(ren) better. The second book, Obsession and Sacrifice, will be available soon. Enjoy.
