Review: Last Sacrifice by Richelle Mead

Review: Last Sacrifice by Richelle Mead

Last Sacrifice by Richelle Mead My rating: 4 of 5 stars Last Sacrifice being the final book in the Vampire Academy series, I took my time reading it, trying to make it last as long as possible. I have enjoyed the series so much, I am sad to see it come to an end. Although […]

Publishers offer titles of soon-to-be released books to prospective readers for review. Today I found out by email that 3 of my book requests were accepted and I will be receiving advanced […]

Review: Spirit Bound – Richelle Mead

Review: Spirit Bound – Richelle Mead

Spirit Bound by Richelle Mead My rating: 4 of 5 stars Spirit Bound being the 5th book in the Vampire Academy series, I have to admit it was the hardest for me to read. It’s not that I disliked the book, I thought it was very good. The subject matter was just hard for me […]

Review: Blood Promise – Richelle Mead

Review: Blood Promise – Richelle Mead

Blood Promise by Richelle Mead My rating: 4 of 5 stars Book 4 in the Vampire Academy Series Like all the other books so far in the Vampire Academy series, I enjoyed Blood Promise and couldn’t put it down once I started reading it. However, because of Blood Promise’s particular story line it was difficult […]

Review: Shadow Kiss by Richelle Mead

Review: Shadow Kiss by Richelle Mead

Shadow Kiss by Richelle Mead My rating: 4 of 5 stars Shadow Kiss being the third book in the Vampire Academy series, and once again I started it and couldn’t put it down. This book had a lot more action than the previous books have had, and it also has a really large twist (that […]

Book Review: Frostbite: Vampire Academy Book 2 – Richelle Mead

Book Review: Frostbite: Vampire Academy Book 2 – Richelle Mead

Frostbite by Richelle Mead My rating: 5 of 5 stars After reading Vampire Academy the first in the series, I had to buy Frostbite right away. It’s nice to be so wrapped up in a series, I don’t think I’ve been this “into” a series since Harry Potter or Twilight. I love the 2 books […]

Book Review: Vampire Academy Book 1 by Richelle Mead

Book Review: Vampire Academy Book 1 by Richelle Mead

Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead Started Vampire Academy last night when I woke up and couldn’t sleep – I figured I’d just read a few pages to kick the book off and then get some more shut eye. WRONG. Once I started reading I couldn’t pry my eyes away from my nook and I just […]

Book Review: Pursuit by Thomas Perry

Book Review: Pursuit by Thomas Perry

Pursuit by Thomas Perry My rating: 4 of 5 stars Pursuit was a great suspense novel. It’s basically a story of two professional hit men going toe to toe. Both are great at what they do and it’s fascinating to see how they go about trying to outsmart the other one. Pursuit starts out with […]

Book Review: Abandon by Blake Crouch

Book Review: Abandon by Blake Crouch

Abandon by Blake Crouch My rating: 3 of 5 stars Abandon starts off with a very intriguing premise – in 1893 an entire mining town in the mountains of Colorado disappears without a trace. In 2009, a group goes to the mining town all with their own agendas – which become clearer as the book […]

Reading Challenges for 2011

Reading Challenges for 2011

Instead of making New Years resolutions this year, I decided to set a couple reading challenges for myself. The first being to read at least 55 books this year. Last year I read 57 books, which is probably a record for me (at least in my adult years) but I realized that some of the […]

Welcome to My World!

Welcome to My World!

I’ve been working on this site for a couple weeks now, tweaking it “just so” and I realized today I am never going to get it exactly how I want it – because there are just TOO MANY OPTIONS! I love options, but I could tweak this site forever and never make a post. So, […]
