{Review+Giveaway} Taming by A.K. Koonce

{Review+Giveaway} Taming by A.K. Koonce

Taming is the first book in the adult shifter romance series, called to Tame a Shifter by author A.K. Koonce. Though this is my first book that I have read by this author, I know it won’t be my last. I really enjoyed Taming. It was  a good start to what seems like it will be a very interesting series. Be warned, it does leave you on one heck of a cliffhanger, which made me even more anxious and excited for the second book. In Taming we meet our main character Arlow. Arlow is an animal taming and a mage. At the start of the story, she comes across three dragon eggs, which she takes because they will sell for a very high price. Unbeknownst to her, those eggs contain dragon shifters in them. Dragon shifters that are meant to hunt her down. The premise of the story is an interesting one, and even more interesting is how hostile the characters are to each other. I really didn’t expect that…. Read more »

{Review+Giveaway} Cold Spell by Mia London & Susan Sheehey

{Review+Giveaway} Cold Spell by Mia London & Susan Sheehey

Cold Spell is the third book in the Sweet Escape series by Mia London & Susan Sheehey. The sweet escape series is a series of standalone contemporary romance novels by this author duo. You do not need to read the books in this series in order. Cold spell is the third book in the series, but it is also the first book I have read from the series. I think this series will be great for fans of super quick, instant gratification type reads. I tend to like my books a little longer so I can enjoy all of the details of the story, so this novel was a little too short for me, but if you are looking for a read that you can easily complete in one sitting, this will be a great one for you. Cold Spell is the story of Liddy and Luke. Liddy goes on a quick ski trip to unwind with her friends and she ends up hurting her ankle. Enter hot and charismatic… Read more »

{Release Day Review} THE SPELLBOOK OF KATRINA VAN TASSEL by Alyssa Palombo @AlyssinWnderlnd @StMartinsPress

{Release Day Review} THE SPELLBOOK OF KATRINA VAN TASSEL by Alyssa Palombo @AlyssinWnderlnd @StMartinsPress

THE SPELLBOOK OF KATRINA VAN TASSEL: A Story of Sleepy Hollow by Alyssa Palombo. The Spellbook of Katrina Van Tassel is a retelling of the tale of Sleepy Hollow, but this time it is being told from the point of view of Ichabod Crane’s love interest, Katrina. I loved this switch in point of view because it offered a lot of great new insight and perspective into a story that I was already familiar with. Katrina breathed new life into the tale of the headless horseman. The Spellbook of Katrina Van Tassel is a perfect read for Halloween. I loved the gothic atmosphere vibe, paired with all of the supernatural elements of the story. It was a great combination for a mysterious and spooky read, but don’t worry, it also has plenty of romance woven in, which I also loved. Katrina Van Tassel and Ichabod Crane meet when Mr. Cranes comes into town as a new teacher. Watching him and Katrina meet and eventually fall in love was my favorite part… Read more »

{Review+Giveaway} Apollo is Mine by Mila Young

{Review+Giveaway} Apollo is Mine by Mila Young

Apollo is Mine is the first book in the Harem of the Gods series by Mila Young. This is the first book I have read from Mila, but it certainly won’t be my last. I think you guys all know by now that I am a sucker for anything greek mythology related. And when you combine that with my love for a swoony romance, well, you pretty much have a Michelle approved hit on your hands. Which is exactly what I found reading Apollo is Mine. I loved this novel and I am already itching for the next book in the series. The set up of the series is super interesting to me. This book is set in modern times. Zeus has given Elyse Lowe and her whole family line some of the Gods abilities. They are given those abilities to help fight monsters and demons on earth. Elyse is the last remaining member of her family, so the task of fighting all of these monsters now falls on her shoulders. That… Read more »

{Review+Giveaway} A Court of Blood and Void by Meg Xuemei X

{Review+Giveaway} A Court of Blood and Void by Meg Xuemei X

A Court of Blood and Void is the first book in the War of the Gods seres by author Meg Xuemei X. It is also my first book that I have read of Meg’s, and I have to say I really enjoyed it. Some parts I completely, completely loved but there were a few things that irked me. We will get to those things later on, but let’s start with what I loved. I loved the set up of the series. I really loved that. The plot of this book is excellent. We start out by meeting Cassandra, whose own mother has kept her locked up in a cage for her entire life. This has obviously shaped a lot of Cass’ personality. But she is being told that she is locked up because she is going to become some sort of big bad monster which will bring the end of the world. But soon she is rescued and thrust straight into running for her life. The world in the War… Read more »

{Review+Giveaway} DRAKON UNCHAINED by N.J. Walters

{Review+Giveaway} DRAKON UNCHAINED by N.J. Walters

  Drakon Unchained is the fifth book in the blood of the drakon series by author N.J. Walters. This book can be read as a standalone, but it is part of a larger interconnected series. I have not read the previous books in the series, but boy oh boy do I wish that I had. Mostly because I enjoyed this book so much, that I wish I had read them all in order. I didn’t have too many issues jumping into this world in the fifth installment, but I do think if I had read books 1-4 first that I would have had a better foundational idea about the workings of the Knights of the Dragon, which is a secret society that is integral in all novels of this series. However, I thoroughly enjoyed Drakon Unchained, and I plan on grabbing the first four books immediately and diving right back into the series. If this book seems like a storyline that you would enjoy, I would encourage you to grab… Read more »
