Devils & Thieves (Devils & Thieves #1) – Jennifer Rush

I think DEVILS & THIEVES was my first Jennifer Rush book and I was excited to read about motorcycles and magic. First, let’s get this out of the way — it’s not about motorcycles. The different motorcycle clubs are various families and groups, usually specializing in certain powers (often because specific magics run in specific families […]

Mini-Review: The Demon’s Lexicon (The Demon’s Lexicon #1) – Sarah Rees Brennan

I read THE DEMON’S LEXICON on audio before Halloween (well, long before Halloween — in September) when I was in the mood for paranormal/urban fantasy/horror reads so it’s been a while since I’ve read it but I’ve also put off writing the review for a while because it wasn’t as stand-out of a book as […]

Last Call at the Nightshade Lounge – Paul Krueger

I immediately jumped on the chance to read LAST CALL AT THE NIGHTSHADE LOUNGE after seeing it in Shelf Awareness and at BEA 2016. Quirk Books asked me to be a part of the blog tour and with a description that calls it “Harry Potter for adults,” naturally I couldn’t refuse. I was also anxious […]

Rocks Fall, Everyone Dies – Lindsay Ribar

As much as I distrust THIS meets THAT comparisons on books, I’m always intrigued when something good pops out at me. When I heard that ROCKS FALL, EVERYONE DIES was Twin Peaks meets Stars Hollow, I knew I had to read it. I just love quirky, a little dark, and small town so this book […]

Hellhole – Gina Damico

HELLHOLE is another book that I really picked up solely because of the audiobook narrator. If I’m being perfectly honest, this book wasn’t even on my TBR until I heard MacLeod Andrews narrated it! It wasn’t intentionally off my list but the book really hadn’t grabbed my attention and I actually really love my favorite […]

Young Adult Meets The Princess Bride

Two of my favorite things are book recommendations and pop culture mash-ups. I had a blast coming up with some mash-ups to blend young adult novels and Disney movies as well as YA Meets Friends and as I was thinking about The Princess Bride (as one does) and started coming up with recommendations for the characters. […]

Hold Me Closer, Necromancer (Necromancer #1) – Lish McBride

When I first received FIREBUG as a review copy from Macmillan, I hadn’t realized it was tied into Lish McBride’s previous two Necromancer books. Once I did, I quickly purchased them and put FIREBUG on hold… and like many books I purchase, there they sat for a long time. When we designated HOLD ME CLOSER, […]

Which YA Character Are You? | MBTI Personality Type

The other day we were talking about personality type according to the Myers-Briggs or MBTI Personality types. I always forget what mine is but luckily I was able to remember because I had taken the quiz a while back and matched myself up with a Harry Potter characters thanks to an awesome graphic which I first […]
