Shadows by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Shadows by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Reviews 0 ★★★★

I wish the Lux novels were about Dawson.

It's not that I don't like Daemon ... well actually, I don't like him much at all ... but I wish authors and publishers weren't so eager to always shove tortured, rebellious, mysterious bad boys in our faces. I'd much rather read about someone who is genuinely sweet and amazing like Dawson over a jerk like Daemon.

I love this story so much. It's short, but very sweet and manages to capture the essence of Dawson and Bethany's romance perfectly. I also love the glimpses we get into Luxen life and the relationship...

Night of Cake & Puppets by Laini Taylor

Night of Cake & Puppets by Laini Taylor

Reviews 1 ★★★★★

This is perfect!! I was missing this story-world, and Night of Cake & Puppets was the perfect thing to immerse myself in without re-reading the books (which I will probably do soon anyway). I love Zuzana, so I enjoyed this gorgeous story, which tells of her and Mik’s first date, immensely….

The Sparrow by Jason Mott

The Sparrow by Jason Mott

Reviews 0

I don’t know if I enjoyed The Sparrow as much as The First – I think it deals with weightier issues, and in such a short book, it feels disjointed and stilted. Whereas The First is about the very first person who comes back from the dead, The Sparrow deals…

The First by Jason Mott

This novella is so sweet! It follows Edmund Blithe, who blithely turns up to work, alive and well, exactly a year after his death. Chaos ensues, and soon he’s being questioned by government officials and hounded by the media. But he has no answers – he can’t even remember being…

Venom by Fiona Paul

Venom by Fiona Paul

Reviews 2

It took me a long time – more than half way through the novel – to really get into Venom, and there was a time when I contemplated not finishing it. Something about Cassandra and her predicament refused to click with me, and I couldn’t see the so-called romance between…

Ember X by Jessica Sorensen

Ember X by Jessica Sorensen

Reviews 2

This version the book is an extended new adult edition of the YA release Ember, but I found the new parts clumsy and ultimately unnecessary. Which is not to say that I think I would have enjoyed the original YA version much better – this book has a premise that has…

Peter V. Brett said he has no problem with this review appearing in fuchsia. So, here it is, in all its pink glory. Why has it taken me so long to read the second instalment of The Demon Cycle? I loved The Painted Man, I ended it eager to start…
