Supernaturally by Kiersten White
Genre: Paranormal romance
Cover: Thumbs up! I like the red it it flows good with the cover of the first book.

Review:  good reads:Evie finally has the normal life she’s always longed for. But she’s shocked to discover that being ordinary can be . . . kind of boring. Just when Evie starts to long for her days at the International Paranormal Containment Agency, she’s given a chance to work for them again. Desperate for a break from all the normalcy, she agrees.

But as one disastrous mission leads to another, Evie starts to wonder if she made the right choice. And when Evie’s faerie ex-boyfriend Reth appears with devastating revelations about her past, she discovers that there’s a battle brewing between the faerie courts that could throw the whole supernatural world into chaos. The prize in question? Evie herself.

    I enjoyed this sequel to Paranormalcy. The world is interesting and this book gave Evie more depth as she learns more about her past and struggles with big decisions. If you're interested, start with the first book. This is book 2 in a trilogy and cannot stand alone.

Fantasy Lover

Fantasy Lover by Sherrilyn Kenyon
Genre: Paranormal romance
Cover: Id give it a C.I just don't like the model
Review: A sex slave cursed in an ancient book? Yeah, sign me up. But I was disappointed over all. I liked all the Greek god back story in this book but some of the character traits really bothered me. I found it very hard to believe that, as a sex therapist, Grace was such a prude. Also that, as an ancient fierce warrior, Julian would wouldn't want his son to practice with a sword.Also,the casual way that these ancient gods used English slang. I just didn't think it fit the characters and it kept throwing me out of the story. Even Grace's ex, Paul's comments were hard to believe.

Home with God

Home with God by Neale Donald Walsh
Rating: A
Review: Amazing. The conversations with God books are sacred text to me. They've changed my world and this book is no different. From good reads:
Nothing has riveted humanity's interest more -- nor has anything been more frightening or awe-inspiring -- than the experience known as death. In Home with God, the final installment of his bestselling Conversations with God series, Neale Donald Walsch asks the questions that everyone has longed to ask and receives the answers readers have all been waiting for.
Through his profound and personal dialogue with God, Walsch explores the process by which all human beings must end their days here on Earth and begin their new life in God's Kingdom, to which all eventually return, regardless of their earthly deeds. This astonishing spiritual work offers hope, comfort, and surprising revelations for all humankind.
yup, amazing. I recommend this book for spiritual seeker and/or those who have anxiety concerning death.


Hana by Laren Oliver
Genre: dystopian, YA,romance
Cover: ok
Review: I loved everything but the very ending. Which is usually my response to a Lauren Oliver book. Her books are completely engrossing! This book is part of Delirium from Hana's point of view. I highly recommend it to any one who enjoys the Delirium series

The Iron Duke

The Iron Duke by Meljean Brook
Genre: Steampunk romance
I really had high expectations for The Iron Duke and I'm really sorry that I cant honestly give the book a higher rating but I just didn't like anything about it. Right off the bat I was totally confused. The author jumps right into this altered world with slang and references that had no explanations. I found myself really struggling to understand. Then we have a hero that's just not likable, a brute really. I honestly just pity  the heroine,Mina.  I even dislike her mother. I cant understand how they can have nano agents and flying airships but still communicating via telegram? I'm still not sure why some people are zombies but others are buggers. And I didn't find the relationship between Mina and Rhys
romantic at all. Baxter and Hunt and Haynes all got mixed up to me as the story just failed to hold my interest.  Maybe this might interest someone who is really into steam punk but it was definitely no for me.

Kill me twice

Genre: romantic suspense
Review: DNF so I cant review but heres a tip: If your sister is missing, contact the police instead of posing as her and flirting with her bodygaurd.

Just the sexiest man alive

Genre:contemporary romance
Rating: A

Review: This was a smart and sassy contemporary romance. The lead female is a strong, smart and beautiful lawyer and the lead male is a gorgeous, conceited, jerk actor....but I so liked him! And I think thats hard for an author to pull off. Its hard to make a character flawed on the outside but have the reader see that inside, the character is authentically good. Ive trash many books because of a lead jerk! But this character worked and I really liked him. This is my first Julie James book but it will not be my last!

Perception by Kim Harrington
Rating: B
This is the 2nd book in a series and I enjoyed it just as much as"Clarity" the first book.Frist , I love the cover. It has a great look and goes well with the cover for" Clarity". Now, why was this a good read? I was guessing who the bad guy could be up until the end! This was a really good young adult mystery.  There were, however, a couple of things that I didn't like.  I felt like Clare had  said a couple of things, particularly to Perry, that sounded like someone much older than a teen. Also **spoiler alert*** what girl sets up a guy she likes on a date with another girl? never! and Clarity is much to smart to do something like that. That totally pulled me out of the story, I was like"Are you kidding me? Your not being nice, your an idiot". That said , I did like it very much and Yes, I would recomend it as a light mystery.

Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver

Genre: YA,dystopian,romance
Rating: A

Review:  I'm trying out a new rating system, I'm hoping it has a better look, let me know what you think. This is the sequel to "Delirium", which I liked very much, except of course for the huge cliffhanger at the end, "Pandemonium" is no different. Just as enjoyable of a read and it leaves you with a huge cliffhanger. I have to say that I love Laren Oliver's writing voice. I read her earlier work"Before I fall" also, which was amazing, but I'm never totally happy with the endings. Ms. oliver's writing style and story telling make it worth it for me but now I kinda go into her books expecting that I might not be totally happy with the ending but satisfied overall.
  In this book we see Lena struggle physically and emtionally to survive in the wilds. Her journey is full of danger and intregue and brings lots of new and interesting new charaters into the mix. I read this book in one day and can not wait for "Requium" the 3rd book in the series!

Clockwork Prince

Clockwork Prince (The Infernal Devices, #2)Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was the 2nd in the infernal devices series. I had a little trouble remembering the exact details of the first book. Thats another reason that I prefer to wait until a series is complete to read it. That said, I liked the book very much. The world that Ms. Clare created is so rich and unique. Will's charater goes on quite a personal journey and I loved seeing the changes for him. All the main charaters are back. Tessa, Jem, Jessamine, Will and sophie are all involved and have major parts to play in the tale. And I enjoyed them all in this dark, mysterious world. Of course the book ends with a cliff hanger and I look forward to the next book "Clockwork Princess".

                                         Curio by Cara Mckenna 4 out of 5 stars

Oh My God.. what a fantastic read. First, I had no idea when I read this that the author is also Meg Maguire. Second, the emotional journey that the characters went on made this one of the best erotica books Ive read.
