Book Review: Ink and Bone by Rachel Caine

Book Review: Ink and Bone by Rachel Caine

Book Reviews | April 7, 2016

When Ink and Bone first came out, it got some rave reviews that made me place it on my wishlist and file away under “definitely should check out at some point”. That point arrived in the form of a book club nomination. I went into the book not knowing much about it aside from (a) the good reviews, […]

ARC Book Review: No Love Allowed by Kate Evangelista

ARC Book Review: No Love Allowed by Kate Evangelista

Book Reviews | April 5, 2016

Fake dating, a.k.a. fauxmance – one of my favorite tropes in romance novels. So, yeah, I couldn’t resist No Love Allowed. I like contemporary romances because regardless of quality, they’re breezes to read and I can usually find something entertaining or fun about them. No Love Allowed had that… and it didn’t. It was rather average, though undeniably […]

Book Review: Right of First Refusal by Dahlia Adler

Book Reviews | March 17, 2016

I adore Dahlia, so this book could have been exclusively about a Saturday morning spent doing groceries and laundry all by your lonesome, and I probably would have picked it up anyway. As it is, she asked me to read it for review and I jumped at the chance. In case you didn’t know, when it comes to […]

ARC Book Review: The Skylighter by Becky Wallace

Book Reviews | March 13, 2016

The Storyspinner was without a doubt one of my favorite 2015 debuts. It completely enthralled me with its fun characters, fast-paced plot, and engrossing writing style. And with the mild cliffhanger ending, of course I couldn’t wait for the sequel. Well. It’s finally here. And it did NOT disappoint. The action picks up right where it left off […]

Book Review: Spinning Thorns by Anna Sheehan

Book Reviews | March 12, 2016

Fair is fair, although I wasn’t completely in love with Sheehan’s first book A Long, Long Sleep, I decided to give her another shot with Spinning Thorns. Though it’s ANOTHER Sleeping Beauty retelling, that’s one of my favorite fairy tales. And with this cute of a cover, I could hardly resist. But in this case… I wish I […]

ARC Book Review: A Study in Charlotte by Brittany Cavallaro

ARC Book Review: A Study in Charlotte by Brittany Cavallaro

Book Reviews | March 6, 2016

“Modern Sherlock retelling.” At the moment, it doesn’t take much more than that to get me salivating over a book. And I know that there is some skepticism if it could ever be done any better than the Every series by Ellie Marney, and whether people should even bother trying anymore. Well I absolutely loved Cavallaro’s take on […]

ARC Book Review: Kingdom of Ashes by Rhiannon Thomas

Book Reviews | February 28, 2016

If we haven’t spoken in a year, you may not have noticed the intense love I’ve been consistently proclaiming for A Wicked Thing by Rhiannon Thomas. But boy. I love that book. It’s so thoughtful and unique – and though there wasn’t a lot of action, I was completely swept up in the main character and her voice. […]
