Crazy Pucking Love by Cindi Madsen

I just met the girl of my dreams. Megan Davenport is funny and smart, and she’s as much of an insomniac as I am. She’s also my team captain’s little sister, which I only found out after our passionate kiss. Megan is completely off-limits—her brother makes that very clear—and I know better than to think I can keep a relationship going during hockey season anyway. But that doesn’t mean we can’t be late-night friends, right? The only problem is, love makes you do crazy things, like breaking all the rules.

Go on a journey in this heart-stopping modern day fairytale.

Sixteen-year-old Autumn goes to stay with her friend Carley in Castleton, Maine, for the summer. All she’s expecting is a normal couple of months hanging out at the beach with friends. Nothing out of the ordinary is supposed to happen.

But as soon as she arrives she meets Holt Roth. Holt is unlike anyone she’s ever met before – and her reaction to him is even more unexpected.

Then she meets Holt’s friend, Samuel Cheshire. If her reaction to Holt was strong, her reaction to Samuel is shocking. The only problem is that he seems to hate her for no reason at all.

Autumn knows there’s something very strange going on, but no one will tell her anything. When she finally does learn the meaning behind what’s been happening – that Holt Roth and Samuel Cheshire are fairies and that she is destined to be a fairy too – her life will change in ways she cannot possibly imagine, and the choices she makes will have the power to destroy lives – including her own.

The Lord of Thunder’s sudden death leaves his daughter, Evelyn Stormbourne, unprepared to rule Inselgrau in his place. Weeks before Evie’s ascension to the throne, revolutionaries attack and destroy her home. She conceals her identity and escapes under the protection of her father’s young horse master, Gideon Faust.

In her efforts to reunite with her protector and reach allies on the Continent, Evie befriends a band of nomads who roam the world in airships fueled by lightning. She also confronts a cabal of dark Magicians plotting to use her powers to create a new divine being, and she clashes with an ancient family who insists her birthright belongs to them.

If she’s to prevail and defeat her enemies, Evie must claim her heritage, embrace her dominion over the sky, and define what it means to be Heir of Thunder.

The Operator by Kim Harrison

On-the-run ex-agent Peri Reed returns bigger and bolder than ever in this second highly-anticipated installment in #1 New York Times bestselling author Kim Harrison’s new suspense trilogy, The Peri Reed Chronicles.

Peri Reed’s job eats her mind, but for a special task agent in hiding, forgetting the past can be a blessing.

Betrayed by the man she thought she loved and the agency who turned her into the very thing she fought against, Peri abandoned the wealth and privilege of Opti for anonymity riddled with memory gaps and self-doubt. But when a highly addictive drug promises to end her dependency on those who’d use her as a tool for their own success, she must choose to remain broken and vulnerable, or return to the above-the-law power and prestige she once left: strong but without will—for whoever holds her next fix, will hold her loyalty.

Yet even now as then, a love based on lies of omission might still save her life.

Phil! A Hilarious Account of Everything by R.P. Momsen

 

phil

syns

 

Billions of years ago, our universe was born. Not really that terribly exciting for most life forms except of course yourselves… and, well, Phil. The poor bastard who’s had to watch over all you people the last billion or so years.

Well, finally after years of listening to all your griping, bitching and whining, always with some imaginary being getting all the credit, he’s finally had it!

Phil has decided to explain what the world is, why you’re here and how you can evolve finally into a species worth talking about at parties.

In this hilarious actual account, Phil takes two unwitting Physicists on the adventure of their lives, which isn’t saying much for a couple of physicists, and shows them what life, the universe, and lovely little corner pubs really is all about. They’re transported to other dimensions to meet their better-looking selves, get taken prisoner by an evil but very good looking race, fly through black holes and help the creation of a new planet all while their greatest challenge hangs in the balance, saving earth from the evil, and best dressed, species the universe has ever seen.

Will they save earth? Have all the years of hard work Phil has done creating you beings be lost? Does any of this really matter?

One night a life changed. My life. I used to write about chaos – about lives turning on a dime. Never once did I think it would ever happen to me. I went from a blossoming career to a prisoner in the span of a single evening. A living nightmare I was determined to escape. The price of evil was high, but I wasn’t backing down. I knew in my heart the men in my life would be looking. I just had to survive. One day at a time. Minutes turned to hours. Hours turned into days. Then, it was time to make a choice. Live or Die? I chose to live. Hell hath no fury and I had no more time…

**Moonlight Falling is a prequel novella to Midnight Burning; Book One of The Norse Chronicles.**

 

Before he moved to Alaska, Chapman “Mani” Mundy promised his twin sister he would find out why shadows seemed to follow him and why ice sometimes formed in his footsteps. For nearly three years, he has failed to keep that promise, but a budding romance with co-worker, Skyla Ramirez, inspires him to renew his investigation.

If Mani has any hope for a real relationship with Skyla, there can be no secrets or mysteries between them, but as he hunts for the source of his peculiar abilities, sinister adversaries with dangerous motives will emerge from the shadows to conspire against him.

Solina Mundy lives a quiet life, running the family bakery in her small North Carolina hometown.

Driven to learn the truth, Solina heads for the Land of the Midnight Sun. Once there, she begins to suspect Mani’s friends know more about his death than they’ve let on.

my though

 

This book is defiantly not for the weak-minded. It has some graphic scenes about abuse and sexual abuse. I know that can bother some people. Being a debut novel it was really good and I enjoyed this book. World building was great and so were characters, there had a great development and a great backstory, so you knew what was going on. It often went back and forth, between retelling the past and the current time frame. But it was well done and did not get confusing, it helped a lot to know some of the past events. Overall I really enjoyed this book….it was a wild thrilling ride, with some surprising twists and turns and some really shocking reveals. Some of it seemed a bit rushed and also some of the snark seemed forced. But not enough to make it a bad book. No, it was a great first book and I look forward to seeing more from Barb Shuler.

I rate it 3★

my though

 

Going into this book I wasn’t really sure what to expect, but turns out I really enjoyed this book.

It was short (for me) and super funny.

Phil, creator and over-watch of us little humans, tells us what he really thinks of us and our behavior and actions.

Phil is just plain hilarious, as he retells important events on earth and his input in our doing.

This is kind of a difficult book to review as it is rather short and I don’t want to giveaway anything.

So I just make it short.

Super funny with plenty of loud out loud moments, it is well written and easy to follow.

Has also quite a few pop culture references in it.

Overall I highly recommend this funny little book if you looking for a good laugh.

I rate it 4 ½ ★

Peri Reed’s job eats her mind, but for a special task agent in hiding, forgetting the past can be a blessing.

Yet even now as then, a love based on lies of omission might still save her life.

 

 

my though

 

 

I started out liked the book better than the first, but after like 25% into the book I was not so sure anymore. And to be honest even now after finishing it I’m still not sure what my feelings are about the book and the series. The characters are a lot more in depth this book, more background more understanding to them. Except Peri. Sadly I had a really hard time with Peri. There is something about her that I cannot connect to and or relate to. Buy I can’t really put my finger on what it is, that I don’t like about her. I hope I figure it out soon. Maybe it is her over confidence that I don’t like. I’m really not sure what it is. We get more into her world and get a better understanding as she is on the run. But she keeps getting caught, escapes just to get caught again ….or so it seemed. The story moves on but really sometimes it seemed it didn’t and we move in circles. Other times it was confusing and hard to follow when you get to think “didn’t we just do that?” It also seemed there were a few pages fillers that were unnecessary full of attempted romance and or repeated things, or just plain silly over descriptive things to fill a page. It really pains me saying this and being a fan Kim Harrison’s prior books and series, but I don’t think I will be continue this series of hers. I rather wait and try something else by her. Overall, I thought it seemed long and sometimes boring with a main character that I still failed to connect with.

I sadly will have to rate it at 2★ for me.

Weeks before Evie’s ascension to the throne, revolutionaries attack and destroy her home. She conceals her identity and escapes under the protection of her father’s young horse master, Gideon Faust.

If she’s to prevail and defeat her enemies, Evie must claim her heritage, embrace her dominion over the sky, and define what it means to be Heir of Thunder.

 

my though

 

Being a fan of Karissa Laurel’s work it was a no-brainer reading this book YA or not. Besides I like YA books just as much. And I was not disappointed. It was a beautiful paranormal coming of age story that kept me captive and guessing to the last page. I really enjoyed the world, in which we follow Evie (Evelyn Stormbourne) through her adventure. World building was great and it just brought you right into the setting. Though, I have to say that the beginning of the book seemed a bit slow, with the world and character interdiction but once we get past that point maybe 15-20 % into the book it really picks up and fast . Things are happening with and to Evie, and she is just trying to survive. She also has a lot to learn as she never used to have to do much on her own, being sheltered by her father most of her life didn’t help. Now on the run with Gideon she has to learn fast. Of course there are hick-ups and not everything goes as smoothly as she thought. She also learns quickly that she should not trust everyone and that betrayal is a real. I liked how much Evie grew throughout the book and how she became more and more confident in her abilities and herself. Gideon is there to get her to safety in one piece, but there are a few things that are a mystery about him. We learn more and more about as Evie grows closer to him. But how much we really know about him is yet to be seen. Evie meets a lot of great and interesting people along the way. Some help, others are out to get her … some do both. Overall great book and I enjoyed it a lot, once it got passed the slower start. Really looking forward to see what happens next to Evie and her crew.

I rate it 4 ★

Well the idea was good, that is pretty much the only positive thing I can say about this book. I am stumped that this book has so many good reviews…..I really don’t like to give negative feedback, because I know how much sweat, tears and time the author probably put into a book. But sometimes it is just the way it is. I will make it short but to the point. This book was WAY to angsty . I get the point it is a YA book but there are many great YA books out there being great without all the teenage angst. I swear Autumn made tying your shoes angsty . Everything seemed so forced, emotions, actions and reactions, characters and story line all seemed forced together. Which gave the book a kind of monotone feel to it. Also the love triangle just didn’t feel right, not only did it seemed also forced but also angsty . The made the twilight triangle look great. The story, besides being felt forced had some pretty good potholes in it, which just made it even harder to read and follow the story, which sometimes kept jumping back and forth.

Overall I can say that this book was really not for me.

my though

 

 

I won this book a while back and finally got to it. And I’m glad that I did.

I enjoyed this book and it is a crazy concept, as far as the games goes and to see how far people would go to ensure their happiness.

It is an easy to follow book and also very fast paced. It has multiple point of view, we get a view into the council, staff of the game and some of the contestants, which was good to get the whole point of the book.

I enjoyed the individual characters and their backstories, the little we did get.

Overall I enjoyed the book, but a few things I didn’t enjoy so much.

One was that there was very little dialog … which was a bit odd for me and could have helped bit more some info.

Another was that there were a few things repeated over and over, like for example the announcements for the host of the games. Yes, it was good in the beginning but didn’t not have to be repeated in print every five pages. It kind of slowed the flow of reading it.

Also a bit more info about the games itself would have been nice.

That being said I’m glad I read the book, because it makes you think about the status of society and the end was a bit surprising but it could have been carried out a bit much.

I just met the girl of my dreams. Megan Davenport is funny and smart, and she’s as much of an insomniac as I am. She’s also my team captain’s little sister, which I only found out after our passionate kiss. Megan is completely off-limits—her brother makes that very clear—and I know better than to think I can keep a relationship going during hockey season anyway. But that doesn’t mean we can’t be late-night friends, right? The only problem is, love makes you do crazy things, like breaking all the rules.

It’s no secret that I’m in love with Dane since book two and couldn’t wait to hear his story and see him get his HEA. So needless to say I loved this book…. For the most part. I liked Megan, math genius, quirky, funny, just an overall nerd. I liked that she didn’t back down from him in the beginning and pretty much stood her ground and didn’t take no for an answer. She wanted a fresh start and nothing will stop her and she sticks to it. I also liked her roommate and how that turned out. Maybe we will see her in future book ;) Dane, takes to Megan right away, but once he finds out who she is, he knows he better shouldn’t but it is hard for him to stay away. He struggles with his family and his ex-girlfriend and thinks he is responsible to what happened to her. It takes him a long to open up and so far mainly he and Hudson know what happened. It is pretty clear early on that Dane and Megan are good for each other and bring out the best in each other. They both know it but can’t commit for each different reason and one big in common .. Becket. Overall I loved the book and Dane and Megan’s story and their HEA. The only minor thing I didn’t care for was his sister(s). It just felt weird. Other than that I thought it was great and glad my boy Dane ended up with a great nerdy girl like Megan and both of them are happy. I hope to see a couple more books in the taking shots series.

I rate it 4 ½ ★

Red Death by Jeff Altabef

Every child of Eden fears the Red Death. All those afflicted with the plague die young, their souls stripped away as punishment for ancient sins long forgotten. For centuries, Guardians have protected Eden from the Red Death by killing outsiders who stray too close. They must keep Eden a secret if they are to survive.

Seventeen-year-old Aaliss is a highly-trained and dedicated Guardian, but when her rather odd thirteen-year-old brother discovers a cure to the plague, her world is turned upside down. The discovery is a miracle, yet miracles are dangerous in Eden.

The corrupt, all-powerful High Priest brands Aaliss and her brother Wilky as traitors, forcing them to run. They seek refuge in the last place Aaliss thought she’d ever go—beyond the boundaries of Eden, and into the land of the Soulless. Here they must navigate a medieval world filled with witches, magic, and warrior kingdoms run by Elders who are only a few years older than her.

Aaliss yearns to return home to Eden, but she must protect Wilky at all costs. And when her heart tugs her deeper into the world of the Soulless, she questions everything she once believed, everything the Priests had taught her about those who live outside Eden—they are forever cursed, savage, soulless.

Has her soul been taken? Will she and Wilky fall victim to the Red Death, or might they die sooner in the center of a battle that threatens to tear apart the Soulless world? Or… might Aaliss finally find, against all odds, what her heart has yearned for all along?

Living with her alcoholic deadbeat dad in the swamps of southern Louisiana, she’s a high school dropout with a pill habit and a criminal record who’s been fired from more crap jobs than she can count. Now on probation for a felony, it seems that Angel will never pull herself out of the downward spiral her life has taken.

That is, until the day she wakes up in the ER after overdosing on painkillers. Angel remembers being in an horrible car crash, but she doesn’t have a mark on her. To add to the weirdness, she receives an anonymous letter telling her there’s a job waiting for her at the parish morgue—and that it’s an offer she doesn’t dare refuse.

Before she knows it she’s dealing with a huge crush on a certain hunky deputy and a brand new addiction: an overpowering craving for brains. Plus, her morgue is filling up with the victims of a serial killer who decapitates his prey—just when she’s hungriest!

Angel’s going to have to grow up fast if she wants to keep this job and stay in one piece. Because if she doesn’t, she’s dead meat.

Literally.

Note: This book is intended for those 18 and over due to graphic language, descriptive sex, and the world’s most inappropriate grandparents.

A mysterious island. An abandoned orphanage. A strange collection of curious photographs.

A horrific family tragedy sets sixteen-year-old Jacob journeying to a remote island off the coast of Wales, where he discovers the crumbling ruins of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. As Jacob explores its abandoned bedrooms and hallways, it becomes clear that the children were more than just peculiar. They may have been dangerous. They may have been quarantined on a deserted island for good reason. And somehow—impossible though it seems—they may still be alive.

A spine-tingling fantasy illustrated with haunting vintage photography, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children will delight adults, teens, and anyone who relishes an adventure in the shadows.

Grief-stricken by the murder of her twin, Keely Morrison is convinced suicide is her ticket to eternal peace and a chance to reunite with her sister. When Keely succeeds in taking her own life, she discovers death isn’t at all what she expected.

Instead, she’s trapped in a netherworld on Earth and her only hope for reconnecting with her sister and navigating the afterlife is a bounty-hunting reaper and a sardonic, possibly unscrupulous, demon. But when the demon offers Keely her greatest temptation—revenge on her sister’s murderer—she must uncover his motives and determine who she can trust.

Because, as Keely soon learns, both reaper and demon are keeping secrets and she fears the worst is true—that her every decision will change how, and with whom, she spends eternity.
