BOOK REVIEW: Grave Sight, by Charlaine Harris

Rereading Grave Sight was more enjoyable than I anticipated. Ten years later and I think my emotional connection to Harper may have grown. Grave Sight follows Harper Connelly a woman who travels across the USA with her step-brother Tolliver finding the dead when conventional resources fail. Struck by lightning as a teenager, Harper can see the deceased’s final moments and sense their final resting place. Called to yet another small

BOOK REVIEW: Breaking Hollywood, by Samantha Towle

Breaking Hollywood is a light and fluffy read on the surface. It’s a highly enjoyable new adult contemporary romance and very in keeping with Samantha Towle’s other works. Breaking Hollywood is a follow-up book to Wardrobe Malfunction and catches up with wardrobe mistress Ava after the unfortunate loss of her job. Absorbed in her problems, Ava doesn’t notice Gabriel Evans, her Hollywood A-list crush, walking up to her car. Ava breaks Gabriel’s foot and,

BOOK REVIEW: Ashes Reborn, by Keri Arthur

Ashes Reborn is the fourth book in the Souls of Fire series and unfortunately could end up being another Memory Zero. Dread is, unfortunately, overshadowing my enjoyment of this action-packed instalment. Ashes Reborn picks up a couple of days after the roaring events of Flameout. Emberly races against the clock to get revenge against the sadistic and mysterious Rinaldo for Rory’s death and the pain of his rebirth. Emberly and Jackson are forced

BOOK REVIEW: A Veiled Deception, by Annette Blair

I didn’t understand what a cozy mystery was until I read A Veiled Deception. It turns out that I’ve read a number of them but A Veiled Deception was by far the best. A Veiled Deception follows fashion design assistant Madiera as she returns to her hometown to help her baby-sister plan her wedding. Unfortunately, Madiera’s first night in town is met with the untimely murder of a wanna-be fiance

BOOK REVIEW: Hell’s Bell, by Keri Arthur

Hell’s Bell is the second book in Keri Arthur’s new Lizzie Grace series. The first book was an excellent introduction to Lizzie and this action-packed instalment did not fail to entice us with more hints at Lizzie’s past. RECAP Lizzie Grace is an odd witch, a disappointment her family claimed. She’s supposedly a low-powered anomaly for a blueblood-witch family but no one has ever considered that Lizzie and Belle, her human familiar,

BOOK REVIEW: Grave Ransom, by Kalayna Price

Grave Ransom is the fifth book in the Alex Craft urban fantasy series and I just can’t get enough of Kalayna Price’s work. Alex Craft is a private investigator and consultant for the police with a twist: she can speak to the dead. Not in the usual psychic sense, Alex is a grave witch operating in a world where the supernatural aim to work in tandem with humans. Nekros City

BOOK REVIEW: Flameout, by Keri Arthur

Flameout is the third book in the Souls of Fire series and it’s just as fast-paced and high impact as the first two books. My love for Keri Arthur’s work just keeps growing. Flameout follows Emberly, a Phoenix living with her fated mate in Melbourne, as she falls further down the psychotic rabbit hole of Melbourne’s changing status quo. PIT’s manpower is spread thin between struggling to control the outbreak of

BOOK REVIEW: Deja Who, by MaryJanice Davidson

There’s something about Deja Who that I could easily connect to watching a four-car pile-up; you know you should stop watching (or in this case reading) but you just can’t turn away. Now I’m going to preface this review with a disclaimer: I used to love MaryJanice Davidson. In the beginning, I loved Betsy and, despite what some reviewers say about Fred being a carbon copy of Betsy, I loved Fred.

This month I bit the bullet and finally filmed and uploaded a video to Booktube. In my second video, I talked about my 2017 favourite reads and explained some of my reasons – as best I could considering I hadn’t written up my thoughts. In this video, I talk about the following books: The Hating Game, by Sally Thorne (New Adult Contemporary) Blood Kissed, by Keri Arthur (Urban Fantasy) Wardrobe

BOOK REVIEW: Practical Magic, By Alice Hoffman

As I’m sure is the case for many, I grew up loving the film adaptation of Practical Magic, by Alice Hoffman. It only occurred to me late last year that I really should read the book. My drive to do so stemmed entirely from the release of The Rules of Magic, which is the prologue to Practical Magic.  I wish I could say I was wowed and fell in love with the characters
