Velvet by Temple West | Book Review

I unabashedly enjoy romance books and books with kissing and such, so of course I am 100% on board for the books published by Macmillan’s new imprint Swoon Reads. This imprint basically guarantees there’s going to be kissing or else. Velvet by debut author Temple West is a paranormal offering from this imprint featuring a vampire […]

The Ruby Circle by Richelle Mead | Audiobook Review

Why Did I Listen To This Book? Reader friends, I have listened to almost the entire Bloodlines by Richelle Mead series on audiobook. It stands to reason that I would happily finish up the series via audio. ALSO! I was lucky enough to be offered a review copy of the audiobook, so of course I immediately jumped […]

Frostbite: The Graphic Novel by Richelle Mead | Book Review

I picked up Frostbite: The Graphic Novel based on the series by Richelle Mead adapted by Leigh Dragoon illustrated by Emma Vieceli (what a mouthful!) because I had seriously whipped through the first adaptation of Vampire Academy in graphic novel form. Of course, I read this during the Dewey Readathon and it was one of the few books I got through (this was the same day that the Hale firestorm started). I knew that this would be a book I could get through quickly and where I wouldn’t have to concentrate too hard because I already knew the story and what to expect. And well, this book absolutely meets that whole Readathon purpose.

Vampire Academy: The Graphic Novel by Richelle Mead | Book Review

You know how sometimes you get on this reading roll where you are reading all of the books ever at once and it’s so awesome and you are like hey, I might as well beat my own record this weekend by picking up a super fast graphic novel of a book that I already love? Well, yes that’s exactly why I read Vampire Academy: The Graphic Novel by Richelle Mead adapted by Leigh Dragoon and illustrated by Emma Vieceli. Pretty much this book took me exactly 40 minutes to read and let me tell you straight out that I refuse to spend longer on this review than the book took me to read, it’s just the principle of the matter.

The Eternity Cure | Julie Kagawa | Book Review

I am one of those people who does not re-read a book before I read it’s sequel. Apparently this is a skill that would serve me well, alas. When I began The Eternity Cure by Julie Kagawa, sequel to The Immortal Rules there was a lot of initial confusion. I had forgotten the significance of a few of […]
