{Review+Giveaway} Guardian of Secrets by @BrendaDrake @EntangledTeen @chapterxchapter

{Review+Giveaway} Guardian of Secrets by @BrendaDrake @EntangledTeen @chapterxchapter

Guardian of Secrets by Brenda Drake is the second book in the Library Jumpers series. The Library Jumpers series is a young adult fantasy series, that I am really enjoying. I loved the first book, Thief of Lies, and I liked this one just as much, if not more! Gia was an even better character than she was in the first book, and I think I overall enjoyed this one even  more. Plus, hello they can jump into different libraries. (if you are a library geek like me, you should totally check out Brenda’s guest post on her top favorite libraries from around the world! Its awesome.  See it HERE) Guardian of Secrets picks up where Thief of Lies left off, so you do need to read this series in order to fully understand an enjoy it. Gia is our main character, and she has grown so much in this series already! I think that is what I was the most impressed with. She was a bit on the immature side… Read more »

{ARC Review+Giveaway} Black Dawn by Mallory McCartney @MalMcCartney

{ARC Review+Giveaway} Black Dawn by Mallory McCartney @MalMcCartney

Black Dawn is the first book in a new adult fantasy series by Mallory McCartney. I have classified this book as new adult because the character are in their 20s, but the content is very clean so I can very easily see this also appealing to younger readers and lovers of young adult fantasies. Black Dawn is a really cool story, and is the set up for what looks like it is going to be an awesome series. I really enjoyed book one, but because there was a lot of world building and background setting, I did have some bumps along the road. However, Black Dawn is a story that just kept getting better and better as it went along. And I think I am going to love book two even more than I did book one. Can I please have book two now Mallory?? Black Dawn starts off in multiple perspectives, rapid fire three different people in the first three chapters and throughout the book we get to see… Read more »

{Review+Giveaway} Twisted by @BonnieMHennessy

{Review+Giveaway} Twisted by @BonnieMHennessy

Twisted: The Girl Who Uncovered Rumplestilskin’s Name is a young adult fantasy re-imagining of the story of Rumplestilskin by Bonnie M. Hennessy. Twisted is Bonnie’s debut novel and I have to say I loved it! I found it to be a delightful, and dark twisty tale of not only Rumplestilskin, but also of the young lady, Aoife. This part of the summary is what initially got me interested in the story was, “This is not the tale of a damsel in distress, but a tenacious, young woman who solved a mystery so great that not even the enchanted man who spun straw into gold could figure it out.” And let me tell you, Aoife was a fierce heroine. I really liked her. I do have to say, I initially thought that Rumplestilskin was going to be the love interest, and as I was reading, I even wanted him to be the love interest. But no, Rumplestilskin is not. There is a romance in Twisted, and it was pretty twisted, just… Read more »

{Review+Giveaway} Ruthless by Gina Maxwell

{Review+Giveaway} Ruthless by Gina Maxwell

Ruthless is the second book in the playboys in love series by Gina Maxwell. The playboys in love series is an adult contemporary romance and each of the books can be read as standalones. I have not read any books by Gina but I had no problem following along in this one. I will say this, this book is very adult. Even more so than I was expecting. So know that when you go into it. I have read books on many of the various Entangled lines, but I have never read any from their “scorched” line. Now, I can say this book is as advertised…scorching hot. I ended up liking the story, but I didn’t fall head over heels in love with it. It was a good read though. The plotline of Ruthless was pretty unbelievable for me, but you just have to go with it and not think about it too much. The main character, Roman, is a very successful attorney and also a male stripper. Those two… Read more »

{Review+Giveaway} Gold Rush by Jennifer Comeaux @LadyWave4

{Review+Giveaway} Gold Rush by Jennifer Comeaux @LadyWave4

Gold Rush is a standalone young adult ice skating romance set in the same world as Jennifer’s Edge series and Ice series. I have read, and the loved the entire Ice series, which is Josh and Courtney’s story. I still have not read the edge series, which is the story of Liza’s dad, but I am so going to. I loved the Ice series to pieces, and Gold Rush gave me all the same great feels. I love the feel good romance that Jennifer Comeaux is so excellent at delivering. This was a great book for new and old fans of Jennifer’s work. Gold Rush is Liza’s story, a two time world champion ice skater. Liza has been so focused on skating her whole life that she has missed out on all the boy, and dating, aspects of growing up. In fact, she has never even been on a date at 19, much less anything else with a guy. And then along comes Braden. I loved Liza and Braden from… Read more »

{Review+Giveaway} Frost by Kaitlyn Davis @DavisKaitlyn

{Review+Giveaway} Frost by Kaitlyn Davis @DavisKaitlyn

Frost is the first book in the young adult paranormal series, Midnight Ice series by author Kaitlyn Davis. The Midnight Ice series is a spin off series from her very popular, Midnight Fire series. I never read Midnight fire, but it has gotten tons and tons of rave reviews over the past few years. The series can each be read separately, but the books in each of the series do need to be read in order. They are all set in the same world and they do have some character crossover. Frost is a story about Pandora, who is a titan turned vampire. But not a titan like you are probably thinking. What intrigued me most about Frost was how mysterious the whole set up of the story was. It has been ages since I have read a vampire story, but this one felt different right from the start. There are all sorts of protectors- people who protect humans from vampires. But they are not the tradiaonal hunters. There are… Read more »

{Review+Giveaway} ACCIDENTALLY ON PURPOSE by @JILLSHALVIS @avonbooks

{Review+Giveaway} ACCIDENTALLY ON PURPOSE by @JILLSHALVIS @avonbooks

Accidentally on Purpose is the third book in the adult contemporary romance, Heartbreaker Bay series by Jill Shalvis. Each of the books can be read as standalones, but they do follow different couples in a group of friends. I have heard amazing things about the second book in the series, The Trouble with Mistletoe, and it is on my TBR for the next holiday season. I really loved Accidentally on Purpose. I think it might be my first 5 star contemporary romance of the year. Accidentally on Purpose is told in dual narrative between Archer and Elle. I freakin’ loved Archer and Elle. If someone came up to me and said Michelle, what would be a great combination for a romance. I would say, I love bantering, I love a couple who keeps one another on their toes, and I love a long play romance with some good guy jealousy. Archer and Elle had all of that in spades. Theirs is a story that I already want to revisit. Elle’s… Read more »
