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: Lick, by Kylie Scott

Lick was hilarious and enjoyable in parts but tedious and eye roll worthy in others.  An easy read for anyone looking to binge some Rockstar Romances. Evelyn goes to Vegas with her bestie to celebrate her 21st birthday. What she doesn’t tell her best friend is her real reason for going: she’s determined to have good sex for the first time and erase the nightmare of her actual first time with a

BOOK REVIEW: Neverwhere, by Neil Gaiman | #TBRChallenge

February’s #TBRChallenge theme was Backlist Glooms which means any author who had more than one book on your TBR. For this challenge, I chose Neil Gaiman’s Neverwhere. Even though I haven’t actually read a large number of his books, I still count Gaiman as one of my favourite authors and one of my auto-buy authors. Whenever I fall into a writing slump, I also turn to Gaiman for inspiration (I’m writing this while

BOOK REVIEW: Tempest Legacy, by Nicole Peeler

Tempest Legacy is a fast-paced addition to the Jane True universe. There is no slow build for Jane in this book, expect an explosion of activity and a relentless pace throughout.

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
