Lord Carew’s Bride by Mary Balogh

Lord Carew’s Bride by Mary Balogh

September 29, 2014 Historical, Reviews 0

You’ve probably noticed that we’ve been pretty bad at posting reviews lately. We’ve all either got stuff going on or we bought new videogames we just can’t seem to stop playing and reading books and writing reviews has just not been happening. I didn’t want to go a full week… Read more »

The Game and The Governess by Kate Noble

The Game and The Governess by Kate Noble

September 12, 2014 Historical, Reviews 2 DNF

Two strikes and we’re out. Something about Kate Noble’s voice doesn’t work for me at all. The Game and The Governess is my second Kate Noble attempt. Previously I failed to love The Summer of You. Although The Game And The Governess uses two of my least favorite tropes (exchanged identities and bets… Read more »

The Necromancer Chronicles by Amanda Downum

The Necromancer Chronicles by Amanda Downum

August 5, 2014 Fantasy, Reviews 5

I was swayed to give this fantasy trilogy a try when I learned that one of the books would have a trans woman pov character. The numerous characters of colour, including several pov characters, were an added bonus. The books are written in third person limited voice. The one character… 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 »

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 »

Flight by Kate Christie

Flight by Kate Christie

June 30, 2014 Contemporary, Reviews 2

Author Jill Sorenson stops by today with a review of a coming-of-age/New Adult f/f book that she really enjoyed. I have no idea why I bought this book. I think I found it on Amazon during one of my endless searches for affordable, well-edited lesbian romance. By the time I… Read more »

All They Need by Sarah Mayberry

All They Need by Sarah Mayberry

June 27, 2014 Contemporary, Reviews 5

I was talking on Twitter yesterday about how books with tattooed heroes with violent tempers are frequently described as “edgy” and how it didn’t make sense to me. How can a violent construction of masculinity be “edgy” when it’s clearly the norm? Wouldn’t a straight hero who’s really into musical… Read more »
