*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.
Before I Wake had absolutely everything I could have wanted to make it a great book! Kaylee finally figuring out what it means to be an extractor as well as a bean sidhe, Tod and Kaylee growing closer, and Kaylee fighting with all she has to save her friends and family. Before I wake is exciting, and at the same time very sweet and romantic. Filled with action and fast paced, I could not click ‘next page’ quick enough. When Kaylee returns to school, it is very difficult for her to deal with all the attention. Nash and Sabine do not want to talk to her, and the only real friend she has in school is Em. The contrast between […]
This is the first time I try the feature and follow meme, and I hope I am doing this right! I am very happy to be able to use this meme in order to find more book blogs to follow, and also to gain some followers myself, as I am very, very new to this. I look forward to getting to know everybody who stop by! Today’s question is what book-character would you like to come jump out of your birthday cake? My choice is Bones from the Night Huntress series by Jeanine Frost. Or actually, maybe Terrible from Downside Ghosts by Stacia Kane? Can I have two? I don’t think I did the link thing correctly, but here are […]
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 […]
Infamous was not as satisfying as I had hoped it would be when I started reading. It really felt like a filler book. There was not a lot of progress being made, Nick was younger than in the other instalments, and he was learning little by little what his powers were, or would become. Also, neither Nick or the readers know who he can trust, except for the obvious people, being his mom, Acheron and Kyrian. At the same time, knowing that Nick from the future is coming to give advice to young Nick in the book it is difficult to know exactly how the relationship between Ash and Nick will develop. I usually love it when someone is able […]
*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 […]
Let it Bleed is a novella in the WVMP Radio series. And, Yes! I totally loved this little installment of the WVMP radio crowd! I feel like fangirl-squeeing, but I’ll try to keep it to a minimum 😀 We learnt a lot about Ciara’s actual blood family in this story, and all the things she missed out on because her dad took her away from them, and never told her about them.We also learn quite a few new thing about Ciara’s new family, and how awful at least one of them are! Ciara had to go through a lot of pain in her first few weeks as a vampire, though, and it’s amazing that she uhm un-survived? survived? stayed un-dead […]
*I got a free ARC of At Last from Forever via netgalley in exchange of an honest review* At Last is sweet, hot, romantic, delightful and touching. Amy is so sweet and insecure, even if she is hiding behind a pretty tough armour not to show what she is feeling at any time. Matt is hot – good thing he only exists in a story, or I might have had to try to find Lucky Harbor on a map and go on a trip *grins* The chocolate quotes at the beginning of each chapter had me each time – so funny, and oh so accurate. Chocolate can solve almost any problem that can ever arise. I love how both Amy […]
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 […]
Bitterblue was awesome, but I have to start with saying that I love this amazing world of the Graceling Realm and the seven Kingdoms. I think I actually preferred this final book in the series, both because characters from prior books showed up again and because Bitterblue was such a great heroine.
