This fantasy book didn’t feel like a fantasy. I looked at that cover, read that synopsis, and had expectations. I envisioned an epic fantasy romance with Norse mythology. What I got… was pretty much a contemporary book.
Furyborn: Star Wars but with angels?!
Furyborn is a REALLY cool story with two different timelines that relate and intersect. The prologue shows you the outcome of Queen Rielle’s timeline, then chapter one takes you two years back to explain how events led up to that outcome. Then chapter two gives you Eliana’s point of view, which is a crazy 1,020 years later!
Eye Candy by Jessica Lemmon
What I liked There was a lot I liked about Eye Candy: Office romance. Two characters with a tough relationship history (both divorced). I liked the characters a lot both individually and on their own. I looove the whole “friends become lovers” trope. And just […]
Review: Wired by Julie Garwood
Despite being part of a series, Wired can be read as a standalone. Man, this book was a huge letdown for me. I had high hopes since I’m a coder and I thought a coding/FBI/romance/thriller book just sounded AMAZING. But it wasn’t what I hoped […]
Review: Royally Roma by Teri Wilson
You have no idea how much I wanted to (and almost could have) love this book. The premise—girl meets prince and doesn’t know he’s a prince—is PERFECT. Add in Rome and it’s beyond perfect. But sadly the book didn’t quite work up to my hopes. […]
Series Review: Queen of the Tearling (no spoilers!)
It took me long enough, but I finally finished The Queen of the Tearling series! This post doesn’t contain spoilers for any of the books, so you can safely read everything here even if you haven’t read the first one yet (just skip reading the […]
I Was Looking Forward to this Book So Much… then it fell flat
I had my eye on Stealing Home for months! I’m a big Nicole Williams fan. I loved the Crash series (five stars all around!) and while I liked Lost & Found a little less, I still enjoyed it quite a bit. So when the synopsis […]
Nevernight by Jay Kristoff – Bloodbaths, F-Bombs, and Sex
Massive thanks to Harper Voyager UK for providing me with an advanced reading copy! ♥ Things I Loved An adult fantasy book I loved the fact that Nevernight was an adult book. Sure, the main character is a “young adult”, but I wouldn’t class the […]
The Fantasy Book That Had Me Frolicking Around My Apartment
DO NOT LOOK AT THIS COVER AND RUN AWAY. You might disagree (different strokes for different folks), but I think it looks like a cheesy, soap opera historical romance. Had I come across this book on my own, I can tell you with 100% certainty […]
Review: Captivated by You by Sylvia Day
In a nutshell: I finished Captivated by You and was pleased. It was nice to be reunited with these characters and I enjoyed the book. It wasn’t until after some reflection that I realized nothing happened. In the grand scheme of things, Captivated by You […]
