Sunday Surprise – Anticipating 2013!

23 December 2012 Jackie 0

To round out 2012, each one of us at LE have been hijacking Sunday Surprise to show off three books we would recommend. Now that we’re down to the last week of the year (and the Mayans were wrong), we’re going to end it by showing you what we’re dying […]

Veronica Wolff

Black Friday: The Law of Mistletoe by Veronica Wolff (+Contest)

22 December 2012 Jackie 7

Black Friday is here and we’re discussing the season with Veronica Wolff’s Laura and Eddie from Timber Creek. In love and war, something’s gotta give… For Laura Bailey it wasn’t easy weathering her teen years at her quaint family lodge in a boondock town at the foothills of the Sierra […]

SBeecroft-Lego Watch Out Monsters About

Watch Out, Monsters About! by Simon Beecroft

20 December 2012 Jackie 0

Mock me if you will, but I have to say I’m actually impressed with LEGO Monster Fighters: Watch Out, Monsters About! by Simon Beecroft. It’s the perfect urban fantasy for children. It has all the requisites to be an urban fantasy – vampires, werewolves, zombies all in an urban fantasy […]

JRWard-Lover Reborn

Lover Reborn by J. R. Ward

20 December 2012 Casey 3

I have mixed feelings about Lover Reborn by J. R. Ward. I am Team Wellise one hundred percent. She was my favorite shellan and I cried like a baby when she was murdered. After J. R. Ward said that she had always known Wellise was going to die, I (somewhat) accepted the […]


The Help by Kathryn Stockett

20 December 2012 Nikki R 2

From the second I stepped out of the theater after watching The Help, I knew I had to read the book. This was my kind of tear jerking, tear at your heart strings kind of story. I crossed my fingers and hoped that I wouldn’t be disappointed. It does occasionally […]

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. […]

MFlyte-City of Dark Magic

City of Dark Magic by Magnus Flyte

19 December 2012 Natassia 0

Magnus Flyte’s City of Dark Magic transported me to another place, if not another world. Prague, the featured city, sets a beautiful backdrop for a tale of Beethoven, espionage and nobility. Though the book tells of a fantasy unlike the one I imagined at first glance, I was soon transfixed […]

MCard-Ward Against Death

What Casey Would Recommend

19 December 2012 Casey 1

When Jackie told me I had to come up with a list of recommendations, I was stumped. Not for a lack of recommendations; if anything, I have too many. I’ve practically spent this entire year ranting and raving about J.R. Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood series. It’s impossible to get me […]
