Royally Roma - The Royals Book 1

I'm sad to say that this one was pretty cheese and had insta-love. But the story redeems these things in spades. This was a great retelling of Roman Holiday, and I just couldn't put it down. Parts of the story were fairly filled with the ch...

Recruits - Recruits, #1

I really wanted to like “Recruits”. The premise was very interesting but the writing just didn't work for me. The teens are eighteen years old. So for me, I think this should have been written as a high young adult to even new adult, but th...

Black City Demon

I love the roaring 20's so when “Black City Demon” popped up for review I just had to grab it. This is a fast-paced world with shapeshifters, dragons, paranormal detectives, and more all tied together with the realm of the Feirie. I have to...

For Love and Honor

I have enjoyed every book that I have read of Jody Hudlund. I loved “For Love and Honor” just as much! This medieval fantasy series is one of my absolute favorites! The author has a way of grabbing you and keeping you reading until the very...

Seven Days of You

I went into “Seven Days of You” a little skeptical. The reason being, I thought it was going to be very insta-lovey and melodramatic book. But Vinesse did a great job of writing a very grounded and realistic story that could absolutely happ...

Gardenia

For me the cover to this one says it all. I was so excited to read this story about a girl who knew how long everyone had to live. It sounded exciting and wondrous but what I found was a slow story with almost no real direction. I ended up...

Allegedly

“Allegedly” covers the court system and how African Americans are treated within it. It does a great job with this. However, it does also have a lot of issues, in my opinion. Within the first few pages we have the three quotes. "You'd think...

Sea of Flowers - Mini Pads of Color

“Sea of Flowers” is a great little book to color. When I grabbed this one I thought it was going to be a full size book, but I was happily surprised to see this cute little 6 by 6 square coloring book. Each square is covered edge to edge wi...

A Perilous Undertaking - A Veronica Speedwell Mystery, #2

I know “A Perilous Undertaking” says that it can be read as a standalone. But if you don’t read book one you really miss out on the events of book one. This second book takes us deeper into Veronica Speedwell’s family life as well as the li...

What Makes a Family

“What Makes a Family” was an okay read for me. Faulkner is such a great author! Her other works have left me breathless and are so relatable! This novel, however, didn't leave me with the same warm and fuzzy feeling as her other novels. The...

The Dead Seekers - A Dead Seekers Novel, #1

How Not to Let Go - The Belhaven Series, #2

“How Not to Let Go” is a great book. It was a wonderful book because it has such beautiful writing. It was a little less passionate than its predecessor, but it is still beautiful in its own way. The reason why I only gave this book four st...

Highland Spy - The Mercenary Maidens Series, #1

Love, Sex, and Awakening - An Erotic Journey from Tantra to Spiritual Ecstasy

Flicker and Mist

The idea of people who could become invisible was a very neat concept. I was drawn in by the story but soon found out that it was not really for me. The descriptions of their world and the animals that lived there were not enough to paint a...

The Odds of Loving Grover Cleveland

“The Odds of Loving Grover Cleveland” for me was a mess. It was manic to the extreme and I just couldn't get into it. I felt very confused and didn't connect with any of the characters. The story felt very bipolar and it just didn't work ou...

The Da Vinci Code - The Young Adult Adaptation

I decided to read part of this book alongside its adult counterpart. And what I found was the adult version reads as a book two to “Angels and Demons”, The YA version reads as a book one. Other differences were we get a letter to the reader...

Once a Gypsy - The Irish Traveller Series - Book One
