Challenge Updates – August

Challenge Updates – August

WOW, August definitely flew by fast! I can’t believe we’ve already started the first month of fall, even if I’m really happy to finally have some cooler weather! I have continued to do quite well in most of my challenges, and as usual, I have one post for all – I don’t want to spam people with several posts about all those challenges. 2015 Reading Assignment Challenge Update – August For the Reading Assignment Challenge, I challenged myself to read 48 books – four each month – of books I’ve […]

Review: Ryker – Sawyer Bennett

Review: Ryker – Sawyer Bennett

Ryker was simply fucking fantastic! From beginning to end, I was swept off my feet by both Ryker and Gray, they were such wonderful characters to get to know, and I was cheering for them all the way! My Ryker review: I already enjoyed Ryker when he arrived to join Cold Fury Hockey in Zach, and in his own book, that man is just completely made of amazing! Strong, loyal, loving, he is raising his two girls on his own after his wife left him for a much younger guy. […]

Review: Once Bitten, Twice Shy – Jennifer Rardin

Review: Once Bitten, Twice Shy – Jennifer Rardin

Once Bitten, Twice Shy is one of those fast-paced urban fantasy novels that grabs you from the start and brings you on a wild ride full of action, fights and intrigue. My Once Bitten, Twice Shy review: Jaz has definitely had a complex life so far, her childhood moving around to different army bases, her father being absent more often than not. But the strong ties she had with her twin-brother and little sister made it all bearable. Now, Jaz hasn’t spoken to her brother Dave in over a year, […]

The Sunday Post #47 – Weekly Wrap-up Welcome to my Sunday Post. Thank you to Kimba over at The Caffeinated Reviewer, who is hosting this weekly event. It is the perfect opportunity to share what happened here on my own blog, as well as some of the happenings elsewhere in the Blogosphere. I had a busy week with teaching this week, and it’s always a little difficult when following someone else’s program. The students all seem like good kids, and they were working really well, so I’m thinking next week will […]

Review: The Drafter – Kim Harrison

Review: The Drafter – Kim Harrison

The Drafter is a fast-paced story, in a world I would never want to live in! Peri is a very strong character, but so many people are trying to take advantage of her, leaving her with less memories of who she is, and what she’s been doing. My The Drafter review: The Drafter shows how hard life is for Peri, and how much she has to trust her anchor to bring back the right pieces of her memory after a draft. The way she is able to shift time to […]

Review: The Royal We – Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan

Review: The Royal We – Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan

The Royal We was a cute story, but the blurred lines between real and fictional royals made it less enjoyable to me… even the timelines were pretty close. My The Royal We review: I’ve been a fan of the fuggirls for a long time, their blog is funny and witty and sometimes quite sarcastic. I was expecting that when I picked up The Royal We, but I only partly got that. I felt like reading one of those darned tabloids at times, and I don’t enjoy tabloids at all. And […]

Review: Sideswiped – Kim Harrison

Review: Sideswiped – Kim Harrison

Sideswiped is the prequel novella to Harrison’s new series The Peri Reed Chronicles, and it sets the background for both the overall story and the characters. Mysterious and dealing prominently with time travel or time change, while also showing how agents are being trained in order to be able to work for a very secret government organization. My Sideswiped review: In Sideswiped, we first meet Silas, Allen and Summer, they’re just days away from graduation at the OPTI and Silas is feeling nostalgic about possibly not seeing Summer as much […]
