Midnight Crossroad by Charlaine Harris

Midnight Crossroad by Charlaine Harris

July 24, 2014 Paranormal, Reviews 3 DNF

What happens when a roller coaster author stops delivering that giddy can’t-believe-you’re-still-reading thrill? A DNF at page 123. I generally tear through a Charlaine Harris book in a few hours, reaching the end with the same unsettled feeling I get after inadvertently eating an entire pint of ice cream. Three weeks into Midnight Crossroad, I… Read more »

The Suffragette Scandal by Courtney Milan

The Suffragette Scandal by Courtney Milan

July 22, 2014 Historical, Reviews 5

File under: Finished at 4 a.m. because OMG. The Suffragette Scandal is a new Courtney Milan book and therefore the reviewers of Romanceland are swooning like Directioners at a meet and greet. Let’s not pretend I’m above that. Do we even need a review?

Seduction’s Canvas by K.M. Jackson

Seduction’s Canvas by K.M. Jackson

July 17, 2014 Contemporary, Reviews 1 DNF

I’m giving up on K.M. Jackson books for now. Two DNF reviews in a row feels less like reviewing and more like piling on. I picked up Seduction’s Canvas because it’s in the third person. Jackson’s Bounce has a lot of strong reviews, but the first person didn’t work for me. Seduction’s Canvas… Read more »

Trapped At The Altar by Jane Feather

Trapped At The Altar by Jane Feather

July 15, 2014 Historical, Reviews 7

Trapped At The Altar has a street date of July 22nd but I can’t wait. (Sorry, kids.) Jane Feather was highlighted in June by NetGalley. While the synopsis didn’t grab me, the advance chatter did. This is an awful, terrible, no good book with a slut heroine whore? TELL ME MORE! (Well… Read more »
