The Collector by Nora Roberts

The Collector by Nora Roberts

August 26, 2014 Contemporary, Reviews 2 DNF

I feel like a DNF machine lately. After mentioning my issues with this book on Twitter several people @ replied me with a decided lack of enthusiasm. Nora Roberts’ The Collector is not a hit and so say we all. Or at least those of us that said it. She’s got… Read more »

They Say Love Is Blind by Pepper Pace

They Say Love Is Blind by Pepper Pace

August 19, 2014 Contemporary, Reviews 4 DNF

I’ve spoken at length here about disability issues and I’ve reviewed a number of romances that featured disabled characters. What I haven’t done much of, though, is read or review romances with disabled characters who aren’t white. Disability-themed books are kind of hard to search for, since they rarely announce… Read more »

My Beautiful Enemy by Sherry Thomas

My Beautiful Enemy by Sherry Thomas

August 12, 2014 Historical, Reviews 3

My Beautiful Enemy is a book possibly better without it’s prequel. The Hidden Blade was so exceptional that My Beautiful Enemy is left with shoes it can’t fill. Yet My Beautiful Enemy is an excellent story on it’s own merits. Catherine Blade is the heroine of her own life. She’s capable,… Read more »

The Hidden Blade by Sherry Thomas

The Hidden Blade by Sherry Thomas

July 29, 2014 Historical, Reviews 1

Strictly speaking, The Hidden Blade is not a romance. Sherry Thomas has put out the world’s longest prologue and I couldn’t be happier about it. If I’d had My Beautiful Enemy I’d have started reading it the second I finished The Hidden Blade. (Since it was 4:20 in the morning mistakes… Read more »

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? Can we go now? Ok, fine! Free has replaced Smite… 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 »
