The Time Weaver – Thomas A. Knight

The Time Weaver – Thomas A. Knight

*I received a free ARC of The Time Weaver from DragonWing Publishing via Manic Readers in exchange of an honest review* This review of The Time Weaver was originally posted at Risque Reviews on July 6th 2012. The Time Weaver grabbed me from the first line and hauled me inside a crazy world, on a wild ride! I have rarely felt so connected with the main character after just the first line, and I just had to turn the page, see what would happen next, and continue to be amazed. The words are wielded with the same sure elegance Seth learns his magic. Subscribe to Blog via Email Enter your email address to subscribe to this blog and receive notifications of […]

Fifty Shames of Earl Grey (Fifty Shames #1) – Fanny Merkin aka Andrew Shaffer

Fifty Shames of Earl Grey (Fifty Shames #1) – Fanny Merkin aka Andrew Shaffer

*I received a free ARC of Fifty Shames of Earl Grey from DaCapo Press  via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review* I read the first couple of chapters of Fifty Shames of Earl Grey when they were on Shaffer’s blog, and I found the writing to be hilarious! This whole book is fan-fricking-tastic. The snark goes from win to win, and I couldn’t read more than a few sentences at a time without laughing (sometimes, it was every single sentence). And the way it pokes fun at every thing in pop culture from literature to music to strange sexual fixations is way excellent.

Sterling (Mageri #1) – Dannika Dark

Sterling (Mageri #1) – Dannika Dark

Sterling was an amazing read! Extremely well written, a completely new world that made sense little by little, and intriguing and very likeable characters! Zoë was a normal 29-year-old until one night she decided to take a short-cut home, where she was attacked and thought she died. She woke up in a body bag – completely panicked, after getting out of the bag and the ambulance, she ran like the devil was after her, until Adam found her. Adam and Zoë formed a tentative friendship, although she woke up looking completely different from what she looked before. There was also a whole lot of great humour, I laughed so hard in many places, I need to go through my status […]

Review: Forever and a Day (Lucky Harbor #6) – Jill Shalvis

Review: Forever and a Day (Lucky Harbor #6) – Jill Shalvis

*I got a free copy of Forever and a Day from the Grand Central via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review.*  Forever and a Day is my favorite Lucky Harbor novel, I like it even more than I liked At last! Grace is a little clumsy, but such a cute heroine anyway, and Scott is the forbidding doctor who thinks he doesn’t have time for love.

Chasing Magic (Downside Ghosts #5) – Stacia Kane

Chasing Magic (Downside Ghosts #5) – Stacia Kane

Chasing Magic had me going: Oh my goodness! Chessiebomb – you are so damaged, and I can’t help but loving you anyway. Chess is always fighting her demons, and most of the time, she truly does do the right thing. She tries so hard to be good, but underneath it all is that lack of self-worth that has been instilled in her since she was only a little girl. Even just the hinting of what she has been through is really heavy stuff, and I hope that one day, she will feel worthy of the love she and Terrible shares. Terrible is terribly wonderful (heh, see what I did there?) he is always on Chess’ side, and even comes to […]

The Next Best Thing – Jennifer Weiner

The Next Best Thing – Jennifer Weiner

*I received a free ARC of The Next Best Thing from Atria Books via netgalley in exchange of an honest review.* The Next Best Thing is simply delightful! It’s the only word I can use to describe it accurately. It tickled my funny bones, tugged at my heartstrings and made me root for Ruthie from the first sentence. All of the main characters seem so real to me that I wish they existed in real life. Ruthie needs a girlfriend, and I want to be that for her. Ruthie has gone through a lot more hard times than most people, but she never lets herself give up. When bad things happen, she will cry and mope, and then get herself […]

Tangle of Need (Psy-Changeling #11) – Nalini Singh

Tangle of Need (Psy-Changeling #11) – Nalini Singh

Tangle of Need left me in a tangle of confusion! I am not completely sure how I feel about this instalment.  It took me several days to read, which is not usual for me, and I felt less connected with the characters as well.  The story was really filler material, nothing really important happened, there was no huge show-down between the changelings and their enemies, and the great love story of Riaz and Adria didn’t hit me in the gut like most of the other couples have. I thought that both Riaz and Adria seemed pretty shallow and juvenile, which is strange when you think about what their position in the pack is.   I think my main criticism is […]

Pure Healing – Aja James

Pure Healing – Aja James

*I received a free copy from the author in exchange of an honest review* Pure Healing started out really well, there are vampires, pure ones, humans, a very young pure Queen, a protector and a healer who uses some kind of magic, and has a very special way of sustaining herself.  The premise is very interesting as it gives a new take on vampires and other mythical creatures we may or may not have heard about before.

Finding Magic (Downside Ghosts # 0.5) – Stacia Kane

Finding Magic (Downside Ghosts # 0.5) – Stacia Kane

Before I started reading Finding Magic: I need something to keep me from going into withdrawal while I wait for the next Downside Ghosts novel! A few minutes after I finished reading Finding Magic : YAY this was an awesome novella, and I usually don’t even like shorter stories all that much. The only thing I’m a little confused about is Jillian… I thought she and Chess had never met before in a later book. I think a re-read is what I need right now 🙂 Chess is even more damaged than I thought she was, and I feel so sorry for her! It was great to see how she acted before she became a ‘real’ church-witch, and how her relationship […]
