{ARC Review+Giveaway} Realm of Knights by Jennifer Anne Davis

{ARC Review+Giveaway} Realm of Knights by Jennifer Anne Davis

Realm of Knights is a young adult fantasy book and is the start of the Knights of the Realm series by author Jennifer Anne Davis. To say I was excited when I first heard about this novel, and series being releases, is a huge understatement. Fantasy is my favorite genre by far, and Jennifer Anne Davis has written one of my favorite fantasy series of all time. (Her Reign of Secrets series is EPICALLY AMAZING, if you have not checked it out already) Bottom line: I was pumped to see a new fantasy series by her and after I have read Realm of Darkness…dare I say…I might have a new favorite series. I loved this book so much! I am already itching for book 2. In Realm of Knights we meet our main character Reid. Reid is the fifth daughter of the Duke of Ellington. Her father is the Duke in a land that only allows title to pass to male heirs, so when Reid’s mom passes away giving birth… Read more »

{Review+Giveaway} The CAIT LENNOX: FEMME FATALE Series by Roderick Donald

{Review+Giveaway} The CAIT LENNOX: FEMME FATALE Series by Roderick Donald

The CAIT LENNOX: FEMME FATALE Series  is an urban fantasy series by Roderick Donald. The series is taglined as Urban Fiction with a Paranormal Twist. The series currently has three books released, however; this review is for the first book in the series (which could also be considered a full length prequel to the series) called The Awakening. The Awakening gives the readers a lot of useful background information on the events leading up to our main character getting her “gift”. It is literally about the awakening of the powers she will have. I felt like the plot was a bit too slow in parts, and overall I found this to be a decent read but it didn’t blow me away. I am still interested in reading the next book, but it will have to pick up the pace a bit to keep my interest. It was an interesting start to the series, but I kind of wish our main character, Cait, got the gift of her powers earlier in… Read more »

{Review+Giveaway} Ecrivain by Elizabeth Dunlap

{Review+Giveaway} Ecrivain by Elizabeth Dunlap

Ecrivain is the first book in the young adult Ecrivain Academy series by Elizabeth Dunlap. I was immediately pulled into the idea of a boarding school for writers. I loved the whole concept of the school, especially the different houses, like Lovecraft, Shakespeare, and Austen. I loved the idea of being sorted into a house based on your literary style, but what if you want to write more than one kind of book. I felt for Calliope in that regard. She didn’t know which style she would fit in with, so she was exploring the different houses. I am super excited to continue on with the Ecrivain series. If you are a fan of boarding school books that are full of drama, suspense and some crime, then I think this series is going to be a great one for you to check out. In Ecrivain, we meet Calliope, who is an aspiring writer. But to make it more difficult for her, she has to keep her writing hobby a secret… Read more »

{Review+Giveaway} Forever Chosen by K.L. Bone

{Review+Giveaway} Forever Chosen by K.L. Bone

Forever Chosen is an adult paranormal romance novella in the vampire brides series. The books in the vampire brides series are each standalones, so they can be read in any order, and they are all written by different authors and have different lengths and heat levels. I like the concept behind a series like this, and I think it would be perfect if you are craving some vampire romance. My problem is I think I am just over vampires at the moment. Most of the time, they don’t feel unique or different enough, and that was kind of my experience with Forever Chosen. This book was ok. It was well written and the story and characters were fine. It just didn’t excite me because I didn’t really want to be reading about vampires. That is entirely a me issue, not a book issue. I think if you are in the mood for a vampire romance, this book and this series will be right up your alley. Forever Chosen is the… Read more »

{Review+Giveaway} Wolves & Monsters by Dyan Chick

{Review+Giveaway} Wolves & Monsters by Dyan Chick

Wolves & Monsters is the first book in the Siren Problems series by Dyan Chick. The Siren problems series is a new adult paranormal romance series. I thought this was a good first book. It is a little on the short side and it is very, very action packed so if you are looking for a fast paced read with a second chance romance and adventure, this is going to be a great quick fix book for you. Not to mention, it is has wet my appetite for more in the siren problem series. I don’t get to read too many books featuring a siren as the main character, so I was immediately intrigued by our main character Angie. Angie is a siren that feels like she is cursed. Every man that she has ever been with has died shortly thereafter. So when she actually fell in love for the first time, she high tailed it out of town so she couldn’t kill him. But her newest death by siren… Read more »

{Review+Giveaway} S.S.S. Year One (Supernatural Spy Academy) by Yumoyori Wilson

{Review+Giveaway} S.S.S. Year One (Supernatural Spy Academy) by Yumoyori Wilson

S.S.S. Year One is the first book in the Supernatural Spy Academy series by Yumoyori Wilson. The Supernatural Spy Academy starts off with a really cool concept. With an origin of many super hero world stories, there was a change that spread throughout earth which changed people into witches and other supernatural creatures. The Supernatural Spy Academy is a prestigious school where shifters train to become spies. But witches have never graduated from the academy. This is something that our main character, Silver Spell Solange (see what the author did there with another SSS?) is hoping to change. She has always dreamed of graduating from the Academy, but getting in and staying in is no easy feat. Their entrance exam is essentially a dangerous magical quest, which you know is completely up my alley. Silver was a decent main character, and I am starting to warm up to her group of classmates/quest teammates. But honestly, some of their storylines felt a bit forced, and were a little off putting to… Read more »

{Review} Space by Penny Reid

{Review} Space by Penny Reid

Space is the second book in the Laws of Physics series by Author Penny Reid. But to make things a bit confusing, the Laws of Physics series is the second trilogy series in the Hypothesis series. Each of the trilogy follows a new set of characters, but at least one of the main characters is tied to science. And I love a nerdy romance. Especially if Penny Reid is the author. I think you all know by now that she is one of my very favorite authors of all time. I loved the first book, Motion soo much ( you can check out my review HERE) Space picks up a few years after the events from Motion left off, with Mona running off on Abram, and replacing herself with her twin sister Lisa. (if any of this sounds confusing to you, then you need to go back and read motion because this is a series that does need to be read in order.) I loved Motion so much, but I… Read more »

{Review+Giveaway} Battlefield Love by Skyler Andra & Mila Young

{Review+Giveaway} Battlefield Love by Skyler Andra & Mila Young

Battlefield Love is the first book in the new adult operation cupid series by Skyler Andra & Mila Young. The operation cupid series is a mythology and fantasy romance, that has a really cool premise. You all know I am a sucker for anything mythology, and I love Mila Young’s Gods and Monster’s series so much, so I was extra excited to see what they would do with another mythology series. The coolest part of Battlefield Love is the world setup and the treatment of the gods of greek and roman mythology. I did have a small issue with one aspect of the story, but I love the setup and Battlefield Love has all of the makings and potential to be an awesome series. I can’t wait for the next book. In Battlefield Love we meet our main character, Locke is just a normal woman, until Eros (the Roman version of Cupid) pulls her into the world of Gods and their human Avatars. The concept of Avatars is one that… Read more »

Each of the trilogy follows a new set of characters, but at least one of the main characters is tied to science. And I love a nerdy romance. Especially if Penny Reid is the author. I think you all know by now that she is one of my very favorite authors of all time. And Motion is pretty high up there on the list of favorites as well. I loved this book so much, and I am DYING to get my hands on the second book in the series, which is slated to be released sometime next month. In Motion we meet Mona, who is a twin. Her sister is Lisa, and they are both daughters of celebrities of some kind. But Mona is a celebrity of her own kind (in the science world… Read more »
