I always love a good dragon story ! This was excellent.
This book was a lot of fun! Much better than I was expecting! If you are looking for a fun romance and a fun light read, here you go!
This book is so hilarious, I recommend it to anyone looking for a fun read!
I've never read a book by Catherynne Valente so I decided to pick one up and found a used copy of this book. I was able to identify who some of the characters were based on but not all of them. I liked it though. It was fun but also quite sad :( RIP, partners of comic book super heroes who have died to further someone else's story line.
I picked up this book for the Pop Sugar reading challenge prompt "a book from a celebrity book club" as it was featured in Reese Witherspoon 's book club. I really enjoyed this book . It was a story of women coming together, opening up to one another, and forming their own kind of community eventually banding together to stop a murderer (so unexpected!!). It was a fun read and I loved all the characters:)
I love that there are fluffy fae bugs that produce wool and get periodically sheared in vol 4. In vol 5 Chise helps a fae who has fallen in love with a human who can't see her. She brews a potion that allows him to see his love before he passes on. Also I rarely see characters that share my name that I actually enjoy reading, but Ruth the emo black dog is pretty great.
Volume three brings us back to the Dragon Aerie! And reveals a great enemy! I really do love this series. I know it may seem repetitive to post a picture of every single freakin volume but this year I'm trying to get better at reviewing books because I'm terrible at it. Also I enjoy keeping track because it makes me believe I can actually reach my ridiculous goal!
I'm really enjoying this series and lamenting I don't find more at the used bookstores. In vol 2, Chise finds out more about what she is and how to use her magic gifts. Elias continues to be my favorite character, he is a delightful ancient creature with ulterior motives.
The romance continues between Peter and Lara Jean but disaster strikes when someone uploads a video of them to the internet and photoshoppers take over. To complicate matters, another boy from the past resurfaces and Lara Jean has to sort out her confusing feelings. I enjoyed this book just as much as the first and I liked the discussion surrounding the posted video. I thought the incident was handled in a good way.
I really enjoyed reading this book although it's not something i would normally think to read. In a dystopian future society, a rich 20something woman is cut off from her family's wealth and finds she really enjoys the life of a killer for hire.
The plot is at times quite heavy handed but altogether a fun read.
I really wanted to like this book and my online book club adores it and is planning for the sequel but honestly it wasn't for me. This book has a style if writing where it alternates between the present and the past and I found it jarring. It disrupted the flow of the story and I felt it was taunting me with out of context spoilers. I don't think I'll be reading book two and I think I'll find a new home for this one. The cover is beautiful though.
Finally reached the end of this series until Mayish when the next one comes out! When my favorite character is kidnapped and Kate receives visions of doom from many sources, she must act quickly to deflect that possible future and save my favorite character! Excellent!!
Yet another amazing edition to the series. When a friend is kidnapped by a djinn, Kate drops everything to help. The reader learns more about Curran's adopted parent, Mahon and his weird views on how werebears are the greatest of all shapeshifters. Kate has dinner with her dad. Excited for the next one!
I'm not the hugest fan of true crime stories but I picked this one up through book of the month club and my books club decided to read it. It was very interesting and gave a very detailed account of these terrible murders. The last act of the book details the further research the author conducted that expanded the conspiracy in place far beyond what the original investigation uncovered .
Yet another fun adventure with much sadness towards the end. Cameo appearance by weredolphins. Yeah. Imagine that and then try to sleep. This book was a little weirder as it involved a complicated plan to go overseas into what was an obvious trap. But the heroes won in the end.
The covers of these books are just not fun as an ebook. In other news, this series continues to be awesome as a weapon capable of destroying magic is going to be unleashed in Atlanta by a radical group of anti magic zealots. Kate must learn more about her powers to save a friend, and alliances are forged with the witch population as Kate finds out more about her mother's past. On to the next book!
I rarely see the complete Goblin Market poem so when I found these little books at half price books, I picked them up to enjoy. I loved Christina Rossetti but I was indifferent to Emily Bronte. I'm not a huge poetry lover so sometimes poetry just doesn't resonate with me.
Mostly narration about a shoplifter with few emotions who gets pulled into a giant conspiracy. The passage of time in this book was really weird. It would be described as if months had passed when it was only a week. I found the ending very anticlimactic and the book was overall dull.
Fun fact, this author is actually two people, a husband wife team. My husband is a fan of this series and I've been wanting to give it a try for a while. I enjoyed it although it does seem to suffer from first book in a series problems. I'm looking forward to reading more!
I mean it's still a good book but dangit, quit stealing police evidence!! Quit telling people you work with the police!! The police pull in the main character as a suspect and treat her with an amazing amount of hostility that I didn't really understand. This book wobbled all over the place and the main character managed to eat her weight in sugary things I think.
Eeehhhhhh..... The concept of this book sounded better than the book ended up being. There was a lot of description but the plot didn't progress very fast at all. It seemed to talk in circles in several parts and tried to add romance where there obviously was none. All in all I wouldn't really recommend it.
I love Pride and Prejudice and I always enjoy finding new formats! There were a few small changes to fit it to a manga format, and I really enjoyed Mr Darcy's horrified expressions throughout . Definitely glad I picked this up! I already have Emma the manga, and I think Sense and Sensibility is the other in manga form.
I'm one of those people who reads Pride and Prejudice once a year and loves the trope of hate turning into love. This book is pretty great at that trope. Two people who work at a publishing company post merger gradually fall in love. One believes they are bitter enemies and the other is too shy to share their feelings.
This was a very enjoyable book. It ended well, although I'm sure the bad guy will continue to do bad things in other books, but that happens in series . I don't know if I will continue the series or not but I'd recommend the book to a friend if I had friends who liked a lot of vampires :)
