ARC Book Review: Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas

August 20, 2014 Reviews 1 ★★★★½

Sarah J. Maas delivers again with Heir of Fire, the third installment in a high fantasy series that is turning out to be one of my absolute favorites. At 565 pages, this book is HUGE – but I loved it and almost wish it were longer so I could have stayed in that world. And I know this book hasn’t even been released yet, but can I has the next… Read more »

ARC Book Review: The Fine Art of Pretending by Rachel Harris

August 18, 2014 Reviews 2 ★★★★

The Fine Art of Pretending was one of the top books on my wishlist for BEA, because with that spectacular premise which contained so many of the things I absolutely love in a contemporary romance and that adorable cover, I knew it would be the right kind of fluffy for me. And I was not disappointed. The Fine Art of Pretending was for me one of those books that just… Read more »

Book Review: Open Road Summer by Emery Lord

Book Review: Open Road Summer by Emery Lord

August 15, 2014 Reviews 4 ★★★★

I knew this book would be a hit with me right from the start for the simple reason that I love the premise. I mean, I love show biz, particularly singing, I love the celebrity romance trope, and this year I’ve been completely obsessed with the TV show Nashville. So teenage country music star on the road, behind the scenes romance with a swoony singer guy? I was ALL for… Read more »
