#3Bloggers1Series: Mercy Thompson Read-Along Finale

11 January 2018 Casey 0

As some of you may know, I am part of the #3Bloggers1Series podcast; and in 2017, we read the Mercy Thompson series by Patricia Briggs. It was so much fun talking all things Mercy with Tamara from Shelf Addiction and Nicola from Alpha Heroes. You can listen to our podcast on […]

Menagerie by Rachel Vincent

21 September 2015 Sarah 0

A dark and twisty story that encapsulates the best that urban fantasy has to offer, Menagerie by Rachel Vincent is supremely satisfying.  In the back of my mind, I heard dark, discordant calliope music while reading (creepy and foreboding).  A crazy alternate reality of paranoid humans seeking to cage the monsters […]

The Chaos of Stars by Kiersten White

28 August 2014 Casey 0

The most prominent mythology used in young adult books is Greek Mythology. Which is fine, (there’s nothing wrong with Greek mythology) but there are other cultures/mythologies out there that can be used. It seems like Kiersten White knew this and instead of basing her story about Greek Mythology, she used Egyptian. That’s right, […]


The Immortal Crown by Richelle Mead

1 June 2014 Nicole 1

I have mixed feelings about The Immortal Crown by Richelle Mead, which is the second novel in her Age of X series.  I still love her writing (mainly because she has such a way that is very easy to read) and I do enjoy the storyline of The Age of X series, […]


Echo Prophecy by Lindsey Fairleigh

17 October 2013 Nikki R 0

When I read the first part of the synopsis for Echo Prophecy by Lindsey Fairleigh, I read no further, and said yes without hesitating. Egyptology is a weakness for me, *grin*. Sadly, it didn’t turn out the way I had hoped or expected. I don’t hate the novel, just disappointed […]


The Blue Blazes by Chuck Wendig

16 October 2013 Natassia 0

An edgy thrilling ride, the intro to the Mookie Pearl series is as  enticing as the name The Blue Blazes implies. Page after page, I was reminded why Wendig is a writer’s writer through his gritty storytelling. With a cast which is perfectly raw, Wendig unabashedly spins a tale that […]


Worlds of Arthur by Guy Halsall

26 June 2013 Nikki R 2

I’ve mentioned a time or two that I’m a HUGE history buff.  Let me make things clear, if a historical book, whether fiction or non-fiction, is within a mile of me I can sense it.  Also, I must have it.  It’s a weakness.  So the second I saw Worlds of […]

Gameboard of the Gods by Richelle Mead

20 May 2013 Nicole 0

I am a HUGE Richelle Mead fan and I’ve devoured all, and I do mean all, of her series (yes, her 2 adult series with Georgina and Eugenie, as well as her Vampire Academy series).  All of these sadly came to an end and I’ve been eagerly awaiting her new […]

DDuvall-Darkness Dawns

Darkness Dawns by Dianne Duvall

24 January 2013 Nikki R 0

When it comes to vampires or werewolves, for the most part we’ve read it all. Occasionally a writer comes out and throws you for a loop, making you fall in love with these creatures all over again. That’s how I feel about Dianne Duvall’s Immortal Guardian series. She takes an […]

Stormdancer by Jay Kristoff

19 December 2012 Natassia 0

Jay Kristoff brings steampunk to feudal Japan in a way that is truly groundbreaking with Stormdancer. Even though the story’s locale is different, it’s not Victorian London or Civil War era US, it is Kristoff’s understanding of steampunk that takes this book from an interesting read to a stellar gamechanger. […]
