Review:  Fantastical by Kristen Ashley

If WIldest Dreams was Frozen and Golden Dynasty was Game of Thrones, then Fantastical was Disney’s Enchanted.  Light, fluffy, and fast, Fantastical is the third book in Fantasyland series and introduces us to a whole new realm of Kirsten Ashley’s parallel universe. Fantastical begins with our heroine, Cora Goode waking-up in a Beauty and the Beast, Disney-esque world complete with elaborate furniture, talking birds, and a sister who sits on […]

Review:  The Hunt (Devil’s Isle #3) by Chloe Neill

I picked-up The Hunt, cautiously optimistic after finding the first two books in the series to be just “okay” and WOWZERS!! The third book in Chloe Neill’s Devil’s Isle series was the best installment to date!  Full of adventure and mystery (with a dash of romance), this book flew by in no time at all.   Here’s what went down: Claire Connolly is on the run after revealing her forbidden […]

Review:  Steal the Light by Lexi Blake

Where has this series been and I’m the only one who didn’t know about it until now?!?  Steal the Light,  the first book in Lexi Blakes Theives series was a funny, dangerous, and slightly angsty Urban Fantasy Read.  I was left wanting more (in the best possible way) and I fully intend on devouring the rest of this series as fast as humanly possible. The daughter of a legendary thief, […]

A Breath of Fire by Amanda Bouchet

I finished this book almost a week ago and can’t get this Cat and Griffin off my mind.  Breath of Fire was an enjoyable read, but I’m appreciating it more the longer I have to think through the overall story arc – aren’t books strange like that sometimes? Maybe it has to do with the jam-packed storyline… Overall this series continues to be very enjoyable.  A Breath of Fire is well […]

White Hot by Ilona Andrews

I’m so grateful that the third (and hopefully not final!) installment in the Hidden Legacy trilogy comes out at the end of July because WOW!  This book didn’t disappoint.   White Hot picks up two months after the events in Burn for Me. Nevada is still trying to keep her family’s Private Investigation business afloat while strengthening her powers as a human lie detector.  She hasn’t heard from Connor “Mad” […]

Golden Dynasty – Kristen Ashley

Golden Dynasty – Kristen Ashley

Golden Dynasty was impressive and I’m not ashamed to say that I really like it!  I’ve never fully committed to the Kristen Ashley bandwagon and I struggled with the writing style in the previous Fantasyland book; however, I read several Goodread’s reviews claiming the second book was better and I have to agree. In fact, I already one-clicked Fantastical, the third book in the series. Let’s get this out of the […]

A Promise of Fire by Amanda Bouchet

A Promise of Fire by Amanda Bouchet

I picked-up Amanda Bouchet’s A Promise of Fire after seeing it’s Goodreads nomination for Best Debut Author.  I love Fantasy, but struggle to find something adult oriented with a strong Female protagonist.  A Promise of Fire delivered with a magically gifted heroine; however, I think her strength of character won’t be fully appreciated or evident until later in the trilogy. Cat is a Kingmaker, the ultimate diplomatic weapon able to […]

Wildest Dreams by Kristen Ashley

Wildest Dreams by Kristen Ashley

Wildest Dreams was a fun fantasy book that read like a mash-up of Disney’s Frozen and Beauty and the Beast – with DRAGONS and ELVES!  (Note: Wildest Dreams was published in 2011, long before Frozen’s release. Maybe Kristen Ashley should contact Disney regarding some legal-ish stuff? Hmmmm….) Finnie is Elsa from Frozen, complete with an Arendelle-esque Winter Kingdom Finnie Wild travels to a parallel universe – where everyone has a twin – to find […]

A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas

A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas

 A Court of Wings and Ruin was one of my top 5 most anticipated reads of the year.  I laughed, I sobbed cried, and now I’m reflecting.  I knew what I was getting into when I started: Feyre had planted herself as a spy within the Spring Court in advance of war with Hybern.  This was originally a trilogy, so my only questions were who was going to die and […]
