The Virgin (White Years #3) by Tiffany Reisz

the virgin

My Review... Note: This series is recommended for adult readers 18+ and may not be for all readers. Having loved The Original Sinners Series (a.k.a. The Red Years), it was a little hard to transition to the White Years.  Don't get me wrong, I totally enjoyed those books just not as much The Original Sinners but The Virgin was everything that I love and more about Tiffany Reisz. “If you saw the crowd I used to run with...let's just say we put ...

Branded (Sinners #1) By Abi Ketner and Missy Kalicicki

branded

My Review... I have read this book twice and I thought it would be fitting for a review since book two 'Hunted' is scheduled to release (finally) April 28, 2015! (according to Goodreads dates) "Don't move. This will only take a few minutes. It's time for you to be branded." Branded is an original dystopia story of a 'new world' after World War five ran by a sadistic leader who has changed everything from the laws to sanctions around. The ... Read More

Pride and Prejudice (Manga Classics) by Stacy King

21433253

Pride and Prejudice is my all time favorite classic. When I saw that it was converted into a manga, I just HAD to read it. This is no doubt a great adaptation. It captures the original Jane Austen book and gives it a fun, light-hearted feel.  I absolutely loved the illustrations in this one! Each one could express a long range of emotions, and also be hilarious at the same time. I like that in this manga we could actually see Darcy’s ... Read More

{Audiobook Review} Alias Hook by Lisa Jensen

AliasHookbyLisaJensen

My Review... Alias Hook was supposed to turn into a favorite. I know it was. Peter Pan is one of my all time favorite books, so why exactly wouldn’t I like this book? But the fact is, I didn’t really connect to this. Ever. I actually put it down about 3 times before I even forced myself to read it again. And… why force myself to read it if I hated it so much, you ask? Well frankly because I thought it would get better. But my ... Read More

The Deal (Off Campus #1) by Elle Kennedy

the deal

My Review... I love reading contemporary romance, but I especially love how well it works as palette cleansers between fantasy reads. So when Amazon recommended the Off Campus series to me for only $4.99, it seemed like the perfect way to pass time, and leave me renewed for whatever Urban Fantasy or Fantasy book I decide to cross off my TBR next. After I one-clicked, I saw that is was New Adult.*heavy sigh* I've learned to avoid ... Read More

17061489

Do You Read the Extras?

e6c99a3a237426a372ecc820976234e7

  Do you read the extras in books, like the dedication pages or acknowledgements or any other extras? I’m kind of hit or miss with them. Well, more of a miss, I guess. I feel like I should read the dedications and/or acknowledgements because I’m sure the authors put a lot of thought into them, but unless they’re short, then I end up skipping them. Sometimes both the dedications and acknowledgements can get long and wordy. I’m ... Read More
