Review: Lovelight Farms by B.K. Borison

Lovelight Farms Author: B.K. Borison Reviewer: Nima Rating: B+ What I’m Talking About: Yes, I am one of those people who watches the Hallmark “Christmas in July” marathon. Although…since the book contains sexual situations, maybe a better comparison is Lifetime’s Christmas movies. For readers like me, Borison is completely valid in releasing her loosely Christmas […]

#Read-Along #Audiobook Review: Hammered by Kevin Hearne

Audiobook review: Hammered by Kevin Hearne Having read the entire Iron Druid Chronicles before, this is my second time listening to Hammered. While I don’t give away any spoilers, I will note that my feelings about this one were definitely altered having listened to it and the entire series previously. That said, I actually enjoyed Hammered more […]

Review: The Duchess Takes a Husband by Harper St. George

The Duchess Takes a Husband Author: Harper St. George Reviewer: Ang Rating: B+ What I’m Talking About: I will be honest, the only reason this book did not receive an A is because it deals with VERY sensitive topics, namely domestic violence and rape, and DID NOT come with a warning. As a survivor of both, I […]

Review: Meet Me at the Lake by Carley Fortune

Meet Me at the Lake Author: Carley Fortune Reviewer: Nima Rating: B What I’m Talking About: Meet Me at the Lake was thankfully more romance than women’s fiction because arghhhh…so much over-thinking. The story explores how depression, clinical as well as situational, can affect life choices. Main character Fern Brookbanks was raised by a single […]

Listen Up! Audiobook Review: Talisman Tails by Danielle Garrett

Audiobook review: Talisman Tails by Danielle Garrett For all my issues with this series (Selene’s over-the-top snarky attitude, the fact that the last three books were actually one story), I really enjoyed how this one ended. Originally, the author had planned to wrap up Cora and Selene’s stories with Talisman Tails; however, she’s since told fans […]

#Read-Along #Audiobook Review: Hexed by Kevin Hearne

Audiobook review: Hexed by Kevin Hearne Starting my re-listen of Hexed, the second title in Mr. Hearne’s Iron Druid Chronicles, I realized I had the order of events wrong in my memory and enjoyed being “surprised” by what goes down in this one (I recalled it happened later in the series). The story expands Atticus’s world beyond […]
