Review: Shadow Bound (Unbound #2) – Rachel Vincent

Review: Shadow Bound (Unbound #2) – Rachel Vincent

Shadow Bound really built on the Blood Bound’s story, and the character development Kori went through was quite amazing. Of course, she was only a side character in the first book, and here, she was the heroine, but it was still easy to see how she changed, and how she became completely willing to fight for what she thought was right.   Subscribe to Blog via Email Enter your email address to subscribe to this blog and receive notifications of new posts by email.

Deep Autumn Heat (Star Harbor #1) – Elisabeth Barrett

Deep Autumn Heat (Star Harbor #1) – Elisabeth Barrett

*I got a free ARC of Deep Autumn Heat from  Loveswept via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review.* I am amazed that Deep Autumn Heat is actually a debut book, it is extremely well written, it is packed with action, romance, a little sex, great food and a really great heroine. The hero isn’t so bad either 😉 Subscribe to Blog via Email Enter your email address to subscribe to this blog and receive notifications of new posts by email.

Review: The Golden Lily (Bloodlines #2) – Richelle Mead

Review: The Golden Lily (Bloodlines #2) – Richelle Mead

The Golden Lily actually surprised me in a very good way! I was a little cautious before I started it, because I had heard rumors of a love triangle, and I hate love triangles in my books. I wish I hadn’t listened to those rumors, because I would have read this long before I actually did. Sydney continues to be herself in this story, and at the same time, she lets herself grow as well, even when what she wants to do seems to be against her Alchemist beliefs. She takes a stand, and decides that she needs to be able to protect herself if she is to protect others as well. Subscribe to Blog via Email Enter your email […]

Feature and Follow #3 – Why blogging?

Feature and Follow #3 – Why blogging?

The Feature and Follow meme is hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read and is made in order to help bloggers to meet new bloggers, gain more followers and have some fun.  Today, Vivian and Jessica are the featured bloggers. Today’s question is : What drove you to start book blogging in the first place? My personal answer is that I love reading, and I love sharing my love for books. I thought that Goodreads was one way to do it, but through GR, I discovered many great book blogs, and I felt like I have something to say and share in the blogging world as well 🙂 What’s your reason? Thanks for stopping by – if you are a new […]

Review: Team Human – Justine Larbalestier and Sarah Rees Brennan

Review: Team Human – Justine Larbalestier and Sarah Rees Brennan

Team Human did have a few things going for it, but I didn’t connect that much with the MC, Mel was acting like a spoiled brat for a lot of it, and she thought she was helping her friends, but really, she was looking out for number one. I really liked Cathy, even if we didn’t get to know her all that well, since everything that happened was seen through Mel’s eyes. However, Cathy seemed like a serious, old soul who would rather have lived in the 18th century as a noble than in 2012 being a teenager having to attend high school. I could completely understand her attraction to Francis, and maybe that is what made it so hard […]
