2015 Audiobook Challenge Sign-up

2015 Audiobook Challenge Sign-up

2015 Audiobook Challenge Sign-up I have decided to do yet another challenge for 2015 – it kind of ties in with my 2015 Bookish Resolutions Challenge, and with my 2015 HW Challenge, so I figured why not? I own lots of audiobooks, but I’m not always so good at actually listening to those books. I have found a few narrators lately that I have really enjoyed, and so I thought that a challenge was just what I needed. The 2015 Audiobook Challenge is hosted by The Book Nympho and Hot […]

Review: Profile – J.A. Huss

Review: Profile – J.A. Huss

Profile took me on a wild and very scary ride, as Grace had to figure out how to flee once more. With my heart in my throat, I kept wanting to close my eyes for fear something terrible would happen to one of my favourite heroines. My Profile review: Please beware that Profile is the fifth book in the Social Media series, and even if I try very hard to not post anything spoilerish, there are some spoilers from prior books in my review this time. If you aren’t up […]

Up Close and (un)Conventional #11 – Bought vs ARCs

Up Close and (un)Conventional #11 – Bought vs ARCs

Up Close and (un)Conventional #11 – Bought books vs ARCs Welcome to this week’s Up Close and (un)Conventional. This is where I discuss both things that have to do with reading and blogging, and things that just have to do with life in general. This week, I’m discussing books I have bought versus ARCs I have requested and received. Going through the books I have read in 2014, I noticed a strange trend! Especially when I worked on my whole year wrap-up post. It seems I’m much better at reading […]

Review: Heroic Abduction – Eve Langlais

Review: Heroic Abduction – Eve Langlais

Purple, strong, hot alien meets headstrong human female who is always ready for a new adventure in Heroic Abduction. My Heroic Abduction review: Dyre is very different from the other purple aliens I’ve come to know through the Alien Abduction series! He’s a mercenary who wants to be a hero, and that brings about many humorous situations in Heroic Abduction. With his inner musings commenting everything from how Betty looks to what he’d rather have her eat instead of her pizza, I was howling with laughter more than once! Traveling […]

Review: Clean Sweep – Ilona Andrews

Review: Clean Sweep – Ilona Andrews

Clean Sweep is the amazing start to yet another awesome series by power-couple Ilona Andrews. Witty, magical and with a strong female character, I loved the way the first story in the Innkeeper Chronicles is so different from their Kate Daniels series. My Clean Sweep review: Dina is a really good character to follow, she has some magic, but it’s mostly chained to the inn she’s the hostess of. And it’s a very special kind of inn, too, in which people of various species come to stay, and where the […]

2014 TBR Pile Challenge Wrap-up

  2014 TBR Pile Challenge I signed up for this challenge in January of 2014, and then, I more or less forgot about it :O I have read some of the books that were already in my pile before 2013, though, and so I figured I might as well do a whole year wrap-up post, even if I haven’t done the monthly posts at all. You can check out the rules and other posts about the 2014 TBR Pile Challenge over at Bookish, who is hosting it. I read the […]

Review: A Christmas to Remember – Jill Shalvis et al.

Review: A Christmas to Remember – Jill Shalvis et al.

A Christmas to Remember has five sweet stories about finding love during the Christmas holiday, some really touched my heart. My A Christmas to Remember review: In Jill Shalvis’ Dream a Little Dream, I was swept off my feet! Melissa and Ian already knew each other at the beginning of the story, they had even been friends with benefits for a while, until Ian wanted more. Their history, made their interactions believable, the connection was already there. One of the things I enjoyed the most was the Ian had to […]
