Breaking the Ice by Julie Cross

Breaking the Ice by Julie Cross

4 stars — Earlier in the year I read book 1 in this series and really enjoyed it, despite it being very different from YAs I usually read.  And so I was excited to see another book set in the town of Juniper Falls.  And this one was similarly engaging and yet SOOOOO different!!  Honestly, […]

The Way Back to Us by Jamie Howard

The Way Back to Us by Jamie Howard

4 stars — I had a bit of a harder time getting sucked into this one, but I can’t figure out if that had more to do with me and my frazzled mind, or the book…  That’s always the kicker eh?  Which, obviously if I still gave it 4 stars, does not mean the book […]

Dance with Me by Alexis Daria

Dance with Me by Alexis Daria

4 stars — Well this was a fun sequel!  I loved being back in the Dance Off world and finding out what was happening with Natasha, but the fun thing was that this was a completely different story to the first one!  It may have been set in the same world, but it wasn’t during […]

Love on the Tracks by Tamsen Parker

Love on the Tracks by Tamsen Parker

4.5 stars — Well this was a whole bowl full of awesome!  It was kind of tailor made for me.  I mean, I’m not sure how many people know this about me, but I am an Olympic FIEND.  It’s my favourite sport (and I realize it’s not a sport, just like rainbow isn’t a colour, […]

Christmas at the Castle by Melissa McClone

Christmas at the Castle by Melissa McClone

4 stars — Oh dude, this was so refreshing after my last read!  I was sucked right into this one, it was everything I wanted in a Christmas book!  I honestly think it just hit all my Lenore buttons, you know?  I do find “royal” stories to be a bit of a guilty pleasure, and […]

The December Deal by Dana Volney

The December Deal by Dana Volney

2.5 stars — Yeah, this one just left me feeling very meh.  I didn’t end up being that captured by either character…we dive right into the story fairly quickly, and so we really don’t get to see who either of them are before it’s about the two of them together.  I think this kind of […]
