Half-Blood by Jennifer Armentrout {Stephanie’s Review}

Half-Blood by Jennifer L. Armentrout was picked as one of the COYER book club selections for September. It’s been on my TBR for awhile so it seemed like a good time to read it. I’ve never read an Armentrout novel before. I really struggled with Half-Blood in the beginning. It was a very typical chosen one trope with the chosen one saying and doing whatever […]

Hounded by Kevin Hearne {Stephanie’s Review}

Hounded by Kevin Hearne was picked as September’s COYER book club pick. Yet again we picked a book that has been on my TBR Pile for awhile. I love it when that happens. I really liked Hounded. I don’t know why but I really wasn’t expecting to. I appreciated the Celtic lore and the battle between the Celtic gods. I thought the magic in Hounded […]

I honestly didn’t love the plot of Mother Knows Best. I’ve never seen the movie Tangled so I didn’t really know what to expect. Perhaps not having seen Tangled before reading set […]

Seconds to Live by Melinda Leigh {Stephanie’s Review}

Anne from Books of My Heart buddy read Seconds to Live by Melinda Leigh with me in July. We wanted to finish out the series. Honestly I’ll continue to read Leigh’s work. I really enjoyed the pacing and the twists and turns that popped up. Normally I’m fairly good at seeing the villain in the story. Leigh got me with this one. I went for […]
