Christmas at the Castle (Ever After #3) by Melissa McClone

Christmas at the Castle (Ever After #3) by Melissa McClone

I really liked this story. It was cute and xmassy.  It had a slow simmer to the romance. If I’m being honest it was pretty vanilla as far as chemistry is concerned.  Their attraction wasn’t physical so much as emotional and they became friends first.  Which is fine except the length of time it took […]

The Summer of Chasing Mermaids by Sarah Ockler

The Summer of Chasing Mermaids by Sarah Ockler

  4.5 stars — Well I must say, I am spoiled for reading ebooks people.  Reading this hardback was HELLA HARD.  For the usual reasons — can’t eat and read, can’t read in the dark, hard to hold open.  BUT I was surprised with how much I’ve gotten used to highlighting my Kindle books.  Like, […]

In this modern retelling of Hansel and Gretel, thirteen-year-old foster children Griselda and Holden escape from their abductor after three years of brutal captivity, and try to cross the Shenandoah River on foot.

Paper Cranes by Jordan Ford

Paper Cranes by Jordan Ford

4.5 stars — So, as with all my reads this week, I was very distracted while reading this book, and had a hard time getting sucked in.  But somewhere after the halfway point, this book took hold of my heart and didn’t let me go, making me stay up until 4:30 am to finish it.  To […]

Never Let You Go by Katy Regnery

Never Let You Go by Katy Regnery

4.5 stars — OK, I adore this author, so much so that I flew across the country to meet her this past weekend at an author signing, hence why I was trying to read her books beforehand.  But as yet that love had only been concentrated on her Blueberry Lane series.  I hadn’t been enthralled […]

Geekerella by Ashley Poston

Geekerella by Ashley Poston

3 stars — This one left me a bit conflicted.  I am a self-professed geek, and really enjoyed all the geek references in this book (whether quotes or nods to real life fandoms, or just the overall feel of BEING in a fandom).  That was honestly the highlight of the book for me, b/c I really […]

Rumpel’s Prize (Kingdom #8) by Marie Hall

Rumpel’s Prize (Kingdom #8) by Marie Hall

Blurb:  Imp, deceiver, villainous mastermind… Rumpelstiltskin’s been called all these names and more, and for the most part, they’re entirely true. But there is more to the brooding, blond haired Adonis than brokering deals for the devil. He’s hiding a terrible, hideous secret. One that threatens to fray the already delicate strands of his sanity and […]

Huntsman’s Prey (Kingdom #7) by Marie Hall

Huntsman’s Prey (Kingdom #7) by Marie Hall

Blurb: Rumors abound in Wonderland, of a dark princess named Chrysalis who bears the Moon’s curse. Her beauty is beyond compare, and her madness… even greater than her father’s, The Hatter. Death follows wherever she roams, and Danika—fairy godmother of all villains—knows this task is too great for her to handle on her own. She has […]
