Feverborn NOLA party!

Yay! I finally got all of my plans set for Karen Marie Moning’s release party for book 8 in her ‘Fever’ series!! 

…then I find out that a mandatory school meeting has been moved to the same weekend. 

Head + desk. 

Hopefully they will let me do FaceTime or Skype or something because, speaking from previous experience, Moning has awesome parties for her book releases! 

Also, this particular party is a combined birthday party from my family and I won a VIP ticket to a reception with other VIP’s and Moning herself!

Last day of 2015!

Being the last day of 2015 I didn’t want to leave the blog empty, so here I am again! 

Did you miss me? 😉

This year a lot happened. Some good, some bad, some headache inducing and some that just left us all ‘meh’. 

For me, I got good grades in school (I’m in my last year before transfering to a 4yr. Woot!), had to use so much of my savings for emergency situations that crept up its scary, wrote a short story, and finished my Goodreads challenge(thought it was a close thing). 

Next year I’m planning to start my own shop on Etsy, attend the Feverborn party in NOLA, and have a blast in Ireland when I go for study abroad. (Amongst other things, of course).

I hope and pray that whatever plans everyone else has that they are successful! 

All the best in the new year peeps!

Oh, boy…

I have just emailed my submission for the ‘Write your way to RT’ contest and I’m not sure if I’m really excited or just nervous. 

This is the 3rd year that Best Selling author Jennifer Armentrout has done the contest, but it’s the first year I’ve heard of it (and obviously the first year I’ve submitted).

It’s a really epic contest because the 1st place winner gets to go to the Romantic Times Booklover Convention (or RT for short) for free! 

Jennifer Armentrout pays for a flight (if needed), the hotel and the registration fee to attend. The total can be anywhere from $2,000-$3,000 and it’s all out of pocket for her! 

Also, (as if that wasn’t cool enough) the 2nd and 3rd place winners get a box full of books!! 

That’s all I’ve got for now, except ‘good luck’ to everyone who is participating this year in the contest!!

Review: Born of Fury

Born of Fury
Born of Fury by Sherrilyn Kenyon
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

And yet another hit by Kenyon!! I adored Dancer Hauk as I have adored all the others in the series. He is absolutely hilarious and loveable. Sumi Antaxas was great as well, she has a sense of humor that compliments Hauk and the Sentella members amazingly and will leave you in stitches!
No matter what anyone else says, this book was fantastic and I can not wait for the next League novel!!

Review: Last Dragon Standing

Last Dragon Standing
Last Dragon Standing by G.A. Aiken
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Yay!! I adored this book to an epic degree! Then again I have yet to read a book by this author that is bad. Keita and Ragnar are such a cute couple. He is a no nonsense warrior mage dragon and she is the, supposed, spoiled princess who gets whatever she wants and has no intention of settling down. Ragnar, after some very big oops moments, finally figures out that Keita is more than just an annoying princess and sets out to win her heart. And of course he has the perfect game plan.
The dialog between the two fit their characters to perfection and the character growth was subtle but there. The interactions between the vast extended family was in keeping with the first several books and we get to see pretty much everyone else we know and adore. There was a great set up for the next book too and I can not wait for the latest to come out this year!

Review: The Taker

The Taker
The Taker by Alma Katsu
My rating: 1 of 5 stars

I did not like this book. I read the back cover of the third book and it sounded really good, right up my alley, but it is a trilogy that must be read in order so I checked out book one, The Taker.
The main character, Lanny, becomes obsessed with the prettiest boy, Jonathon, in her town/village. Since no one else seems to like him because he’s so beautiful, the two become friends. Jonathon is the town playboy, he pretty much sleeps with whatever woman he wants, whether or not they are married but for some reason Lanny thinks that she is the only one for him and if he will just give her the time of day he will love her back. Jonathon ends up having sex with Lanny and gets her pregnant, but of course he can’t marry her because his family is the richest in the area and hers isn’t. He marries someone else and she is sent away to have the baby. She ends up in Boston and is brought to the house of Adair, who is an immortal, and he gives her a potion to make her immortal because she is beautiful and he collects beautiful people and changes them. She miscarries because of the change but for some reason is only angry about that for a short time before she ends up in Adair’s bed, which is another stupid move because he had drugged her initially and let her be gang raped. Then she pretty much sleeps with everyone else in the house and then whoever else she can find in Boston. The entire situation is supposed to be a sexual awakening kind of moment for Lanny, but it reads as just too pathetic and her character doesn’t change at all. She is still obsessed with Jonathon and when Adair sends her to change Jonathon and bring him back she agrees. Jonathon has a child now and his father is dead so it’s his responsibility to take care of the business and the people who work for him. He is still married but jumps into bed with Lanny as soon as he can, but he is also sleeping with another woman at the same time and whos husband finds out and shoots him. Lanny changes him right then and leaves town with him. To say he isn’t happy is an understatement but he can’t get away from Adair. Lanny finds out that Adair is a sorcerer or something and plans to switch bodies with Jonathon so she gives Adair a very strong sleeping drug and runs away with Jonathon. But the two don’t stay together and don’t see each other for close to two hundred years when Jonathon finally e-mails her and says he wants to see their old town again. They travel there and, of course, sleep together then he asks her to kill him because he fell in love but the woman died and he just can’t take it anymore. She kills him, gets arrested, and ends up in a hospital with a doctor, Luke, who she has been telling the story too the entire book. (It switches from present day to the past and back almost every chapter) Luke helps her escape and takes her over the border to Canada where they stop at a hotel for the night and, you guessed it, have sex.
I struggled to finish this book because I really hoped that it would get better but it only got worse. Most of the characters seemed to be drug addicts and only interested in sex and who they could have sex with next. Lanny was too selfish and only cared about herself and what she wanted for me to be sympathetic to anything that happened to her. Supposedly in the last two books Adair shows up again and says that if she will stay with him that he will bring Jonathon back from the dead. I have no intention of reading the other books because I just can’t take hearing Lanny whine about her love for Jonathon(who never loved her back) and how mean Adair is and how Luke is the only one who has ever understood her. Usually I can find something that I liked about a book but it would take me a long time to figure it out with this one.

Review: Bite Me, Your Grace

Bite Me, Your Grace
Bite Me, Your Grace by Brooklyn Ann
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was a great book and I can not wait for the next one in the series! Angelica was an awesome heroine who was determined to be an author no matter what society said and Ian was a vampire lord who was trying his hardest to keep people from finding out what he was. Of course the two should meet and cause tongues to wag which invariable leads to a compromising situation and Ian is forced to marry Angelica or watch as her reputation is ruined forever.
So what happens when a vampire Lord trying to stay hidden marries a human who is determined to be the next great gothic author?
Sparks and tempers will fly!
Epic book with plenty of action, romance and hilarity.
