Novella Review: Destroy Me

Novella Review: Destroy Me

April 13, 2013 Review 22

DESTROY ME is the first, and most likely only, novella I have ever purchased. I don’t really agree with paying for a short story that isn’t necessary for the overall plot, but that is another rant story. DESTROY ME was worth every penny! Who doesn’t love a good villain? I know I love villains! In every book, no matter how […]

Review: Perfect Scoundrels

Review: Perfect Scoundrels

April 12, 2013 Review 6 ★★★★½

I think I should start off by saying I love Ally Carter. Her writing is fantastic. Always light and funny, but with a great plot line and emotional undercurrents. PERFECT SCOUNDRELS was no exception to her awesomeness. If anything, it was slightly more serious and character driven than the previous Heist Society books. But I’m more than okay with that. Especially […]

Blog Tour (Review) Surface |DAC|

April 11, 2013 Review 12 ★★★½

When I first read the blurb, I knew I had to read this one. Anything about mermaids, Sirens, selkies, or even water by itself draws me in. Theia starts off the story kidnapped by a group of three, totally unsure of what they are going to do with her and why they took her in the first place. When they […]

April 10, 2013 Meme 32

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine.   Hey look, I’m writing an intro again! It’s amazing! Not  really. I don’t have much to tell you. It’s just that Alise has demanded that I tell you why she chose this particular book as a WoW, and I quote, “it is because I freakin’ love manatees,” until she realised that […]

ARC Review: Rotten

April 7, 2013 Review 10

When I saw this on Netgalley, I knew I had to request it because of my own little Rottweiler sitting right in front of me. I even broke my “no books about animals” rule to read this, and I am glad I did! JD comes home from his summer stay at his “aunt’s house” to a surprise. His mom adopted […]

Review: The Diviners

Review: The Diviners

April 6, 2013 Review 20 ★★★½

Historical novels are a passion of mine. I love the past, it’s really interesting to see where society has come from and how the ideals have changed over time. However, I usually stick to pre-1900’s stuff. Once or twice I’ve read books set in World War II, sometimes World War I, but never the 1920’s until now. THE DIVINERS was […]
