Ravenite – Alicia Rades

This was such an engrossing read for me. It had just enough depth that made it interesting, and the heroine was quippy and sardonic, which is just how I like them 😉 Rachel Collins is a low-level witch on a mission to find and save her sister from the vampires who murdered her parents. While […]

The Confectioner’s Guild – Claire Luana

Let me just preface this by saying, as a teenager, young adult fantasy was my jam. J. K. Rowling, Holly Black, Stephenie Meyer, Cornelia Funke, Libba Bray (and so on and so forth) … if the book said it was fantasy, I snatched it up and read it–usually in one sitting. Thing is, though; I never […]

A Date for Hannah – Callie Henry

Katy Regnery is one of my favorite authors. I’ve been a fan since I first read The Vixen and the Vet a few years back. It just so happens I’m a huge fan of the young adult genre as well, so when I found out she wrote a young adult romance under her new pen name, […]

(ARC) Marks of the Mazza – Blake Blessing

I recently had the pleasure of reading the debut novel of a brand new author. Marks of the Mazza by Blake Blessing is a paranormal reverse harem romance filled with intrigue, mystery, supernatural politics, a fascinating cast of characters, and plenty of steam. *fans face* At the beginning of the story, our heroine has no concept […]

The Watchers: Knight of Light

BLURB “The Watchers” are supernatural beings in human form, charged with protecting mankind from the armies of darkness. Unfortunately, some of these Watchers go bad. Deirdra Eden’s The Watcher’s Series is written in a traditional fairytale style with a young girl’s discovery of incredible, but dangerous powers within herself, a cast of humorous side-kicks, a […]

The Torment of Rachel Ames – A Novella by Jeff Gunhus

I should begin by being completely frank: the genre this book falls under is not my preferred genre in the least. While I love thrillers in the movie genre, I tend to gravitate more toward romances in the book genre. Yes, there is an underline of romance in this novella (and yes, I am woman […]

S.O.B.

I’ll be honest with you: the idea of a stepbrother romance really wigged me out. I love J. C. Valentine’s books, though, so I decided to give it a chance. I’m really glad I did. This book is nothing like how I initially perceived it; the main characters never grew up together, they had a […]

Sleepy Hollow: An Ingenius Retelling From Katrina’s Point of View

To be honest with you, I have very little knowledge of Washington Irving’s The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, other than that of the infamous Headless Horseman and the names Ichabod Crane and Katrina Van Tassel. I knew bits and pieces of the story, mostly from Tim Burton’s take on the story in the 1999 film Sleepy […]
