Review ~ A Fall of Water ~ Elizabeth Hunter

Review ~ A Fall of Water ~ Elizabeth Hunter

A Fall of Water was the perfect ending to B & Gio’s story, as well as the Elemental Mysteries series. EHunter brought things to a very satisfying conclusion without it being trite. She also setting the stage for the two (?) spinoff series in such a way as to ensure I continue on with these characters. 🙂 Special thanks, once again, to Lenore of Celebrity Readers for buddy reading with me. *mwah* Everything has been leading up to this final book. The culmination of it all was exhilarating, gut-wrenching, and riveting. B and Gio spend much time apart as they deal with politics and locating allies required in order to prevent a war as well as the release of a […]

Review ~ The Force of Wind ~ Elizabeth Hunter

Review ~ The Force of Wind ~ Elizabeth Hunter

OH. MY. GOODNESS. EHunter continues to hold me captive with this series. Maybe it’s just me but I feel like this series keeps getting better. I was so eager to crack open this book but I could never have prepared for all it contained. Gah! So intense! The Force of Wind kept me riveted with this installment. I was alternately biting my nails, tearing up, and swooning. The Force of Wind puts the romance between B and Gio on the back burner in favor of lots of action. It begins with B and Gio traveling to China – yet another fantastic locale. They’re meeting Tenzin there for a conference with is essentially the ruling council of vampires. The surprises that […]

Review ~ This Same Earth ~ Elizabeth Hunter

Review ~ This Same Earth ~ Elizabeth Hunter

I was thrilled to be able to continue this series as a buddy read with my COYER friend, Lenore! It makes for more exciting reading when you can actively discuss the book while you’re reading it. This Same Earth picks up 5 years after the end of the first book. B is now a research librarian living in California and dating. Gio is never far from her thoughts, much to her dismay since he left her, but life is good. Then one day while working, B gets a whiff of a familiar scent and she’s once again being drawn into a world she thought she’d left behind…and back to Gio. Even though most of it’s been done off-page, I could […]

Review ~ A Hidden Fire ~ Elizabeth Hunter

Review ~ A Hidden Fire ~ Elizabeth Hunter

If I hadn’t read other books from EHunter, I’d feel a lot worse for not having gotten to A Hidden Fire sooner. As it is, I’m still kicking myself. But I was thrilled to be able to join Sophia Rose and Lenore (COYER friends) in a buddy read, especially because I was able to chat, moon, and generally wax poetic about how incredible this book is! Beatrice is a heroine after my own heart since she’s studying to be a librarian. 🙂 She lives with her grandmother, having lost her father and then grandfather, and attends school in Houston. Who would have thought her chosen field would lead her to knowledge of what really happened to her dad, a supernatural […]

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Halfway to the Grave ~ Jeaniene Frost

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Halfway to the Grave ~ Jeaniene Frost

Oh wifey! I’m so excited to have started our re-read of the Night Huntress series for the COYER read-along. It’s been so very long since I was in Cat & Bones’s world and I didn’t realize how much I’ve missed them! You know, when I started Halfway to the Grave, I realized I first read this series in 2011, before I even started blogging. And I had forgotten how much I loved both Cat and Bones. It was so nice to come back into the universe of the Night Huntress.   I have to admit that I’d completely forgotten how prejudiced Cat was when we first meet her. I mean, I understand the reasons behind it, but still. I was […]

Bookworm Bites ~ The Blood King & The Warrior King ~ Abigail Owen

Bookworm Bites ~ The Blood King & The Warrior King ~ Abigail Owen

Wowza! The Blood King was fantastic! Ladon and Skylar’s story was action-packed! There were lots of dragon battles as well as battles of will and battles of the heart. These two were absolutely fated for each other but both were too stubborn to recognize the signs. Once they did, they were too stubborn to want to give in. LOL The banter between these two was fun and built the sexual tension. There was more to the story than the romance though. We got to know more about dragon culture and the ways in which phoenixes and dragons ruled together. And we got even more insight into Pytheios’s sick determination to be the immortal ruler of all dragon clans. I read […]

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Layla ~ Colleen Hoover

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Layla ~ Colleen Hoover

With Layla, CoHo dipped her toes into unchartered waters – paranormal romance. I wasn’t sure what I was going to get other than I knew I’d enjoy it. And I wasn’t wrong. CoHo delivered on what I knew to expect from her – a well written story with fully realized characters – and on what I could only have imagined. Layla was suspenseful, mysterious, twisty, romantic, and AMAZING. It really was! I had so many different theories as I was reading Layla, with each little thing that happened, I was totally going off in my imagination. As always, CoHo did very well. I adored Layla from the start. She was so open and honest, insightful and REAL…refreshing. Her meeting Leeds […]

Review: Archangel’s Sun – Nalini Singh

Review: Archangel’s Sun – Nalini Singh

In Archangel’s Sun, an Archangel who is known for being strong, and an artist who is thought to be weak have to fight the reborn together to save the world. Archangel’s Sun in which Singh so totally did it again! I have loved her Guild Hunter series from the start, and even now, after all this time, it keeps getting better with each book! I mean, Brandee, my co-blogger (or blogger-wife) and I face-timed tonight, when I was at around 60% through the novel, and I kept telling her that Titus and Shari were screaming at me to hang up with her and keep up with their story 😉 Shari is the Hummingbird – Illium’s illustrious, artistic, but apparently broken […]

OctobeRec Fest Review #3 ~ The Immortal Coil ~ J. Armand

OctobeRec Fest Review #3 ~ The Immortal Coil ~ J. Armand

I can’t believe October flew by so quickly and I only got 4 books read! But OctobeRec Fest was successful in my opinion. I read some good books and got 4 books off my shelf. 😉 Be on the lookout for a blogger wife chat review soon of Carmilla – the 4th book I checked off my list. I didn’t quite finish The Immortal Coil before October ended but I was close. 😉 Kristen @ Metaphors & Moonlight turned me on to The Immortal Coil AND I happened to win a signed copy in a giveaway she held. Yay! Oh, and the beer pairing? Four Noses Pump Action Pumpkin Ale. Yum! For a large portion of the book, I was […]

OctobeRec Fest Review #1 ~ Betwixt ~ Darynda Jones

OctobeRec Fest Review #1 ~ Betwixt ~ Darynda Jones

Here’s my first review for OctobeRec Fest. Thanks to Robyn for the recommendation and gift of a great book! 😉 And the perfect beer pairing? Samuel Adams’ Jack-O! Omigosh do I love this beer! Pumpkin with the perfect amount of pumpkin spice. If you like pumpkin AND beer, give this one a try. And pick up Betwixt too! 🙂 Betwixt is an excellent introduction to DJones’ Betwixt & Between series. I was immediately drawn into the story as the characters, especially Defiance (is there a better name for a witch?!?), are so engaging. Then there’s the setting – an old home in Salem, Massachusetts. It all adds up to a witchy good time! Highlights: Characters Dephne (Defiance) is a character […]
