Review Hodgepodge (#6)

Well, this is me, so as usual, I picked up one M/M book fully prepared to move on to something else when I was done. That rarely happens, and it sure as heck didn’t happen this time. I don’t know what it is about the genre (sub-genre?) that grips me. Once I’m in, it’s hard to find my way out. I find M/M to be brimming with emotions that don’t feel forced and filled with angst that is beautifully done. I found some really good (and funny) reads with this bunch. And one full-on bust. ūüôĀ Adulting 101 by Lisa [ Read More of this Review ]

On the Hunt | Tracking an Epic Romance

  Isn’t there¬†no better feeling than finding a book that’s like magic in your hands. ¬†A story that, from page one, sucks you in and holds you hostage. ¬†One that when you get to the end and you can feel your heart squeezing, and your soul aching, and you just clutch the book to your chest because you know that physically putting it down would be like ripping off the toughest of band-aids. I’ve felt that way about only a handful of books¬†and the sad fact is that, despite rereads, I’ll never get that initial feeling again. ¬†There is literally [ Read More of this Review ]

Review Hodgepodge (#1)

Sometimes I get so caught up in the joy of reading, I forget I’m also supposed to (hopefully) be helpful and informative to other people when they’re choosing books or if they just want to compare notes. Today, I have some books I’ve read, but been so gung-ho to start my next read that I’ve blown straight past reviewing. May these reviews be helpful and maybe spark some note comparing!

Deadlocked (Sookie¬†Stackhouse¬†#12) by Charlaine Harris *Read Library Book* Regina’s Rating and Review:¬†1 Skull, Grade F I think I may be¬†somewhat of a fool.¬† I was disappointed¬†with Dead in the Family and Dead Reckoning.¬† Despite my disappointment with the complete destruction of Eric and Alcide as a characters in these past few books and despite the lack of anything important happening in these last two books, I still waited excitedly for each new release, read them quickly and kinda enjoyed them.¬† So, I put my name on the library waiting list maybe nine months ago for Deadlocked and repeatedly (hopefully and [ Read More of this Review ]

Snark Review: Explosive Eighteen by Janet Evanovich

  I hate writing bad reviews. I really, really do. But I just can’t help this snarkfest. Sorry ya’ll. Grade: F So, here I am again. I swore I wouldn’t read another Evanovich Plum Novel–after my last review of Smokin Seventeen, I swore tooth and nail to my husband, my mom, and my blog readers that I wouldn’t read it! So…I went to the library. I really just had to know if it was as bad as the previous one. After being teased that she might make a decision in 18, I let my small curiosity overshadow my intellect. Remember [ Read More of this Review ]
