Interview with Rachel Caine

I read Ink and Bone a few weeks ago and absolutely loved it so I’m thrilled to have Rachel Caine on the blog today! Can you tell readers a little about Ink and Bone? It’s set in a world where the Great Library of Alexandria never burned … and now owns, by law, all books. Jess Brightwell is the son of a book smuggler who is sent to the Library for training as a Scholar; his father hopes he’ll be the family’s spy inside the organization. But Jess quickly discovers that there are forces inside the Library far more dangerous than anything he’s ever imagined, and he might not survive the training. It’s an adventure story with a large, very […]

The In Between by Olivia Pierce

The In Between by Olivia Pierce

ERICA’S REVIEW Going into this I was thinking of the book Kissed by an Angel by Elizabeth Chandler, if any of you have read this then you know what I mean. If you just read the synopsis of both you kind of get the same feel. Except Kissed by an Angel has a person after the main character! Anyway, that’s what came to mind so I was completely thrilled as I loved that book. The In Between did not let me down. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and was so happy. This was actually the first book I requested on Netgalley and I just read it. Shame on me! The whole story was yes, a little predictable, but I still was interested throughout the whole thing. […]

Playing the Player by Lisa Brown Roberts

ERICA’S REVIEW Another Entangled Crush book off my check list! Another book that I did really enjoy. Yes, I really enjoyed it and my 3 star rating may not show that, but when it comes to these Entangled Crush novels I get a little picky and what-not! This wasn’t one of my favorites, but like I said above, it was a good read. Like all Entangled Crush books the romance was wonderful, but with this one it was slow. But, not in a bad way. There was no insta-love and it was the romance was built so perfectly. At first there was even a little bit of love/hate situation going on and that was awesome. I love that whole idea. […]

Every Last Word by Tamara Ireland Stone

Every Last Word by Tamara Ireland Stone

Every Last Word really surprised me, which it shouldn’t have considering all of the amazing things that I’ve heard about this book and this author.  Based on the summary and the things that I had heard, I kind of knew that I would like it.  But oh my gosh, Sam’s story was so touching and I loved every minute of it. Honestly, I wasn’t sure how I was going to feel about Sam during the first few chapters of this book.  She tries so hard to fit in with her popular ‘best’ friends, even though she’s not at all.  I’ve read books like this before and the MC almost always gets on my nerves because they try so hard to […]

Sky High by C.J. Lake

ERICA’S REVIEW I was really excited for this book…and I’m not completely sure how I feel. I wasn’t let down, but I wasn’t completely blown away either. This book definitely had an amazing romance and I cannot deny it that, but I think it was too over the top. You guys are like, “Whaaaa, Erica thinks it has too much romance?” I know, I know…I love my contemporary and romancey type books, but like I said above there was just too much. I really liked Jamie’s character. He was super sweet and it was nice a fresh to see a character like him. Sky was alright for me. I know she always meant well, but I felt like she was […]

Blackmail Boyfriend by Chris Cannon

ERICA’S REVIEW Lately I have fallen in love with all of the Entangled Teen books. They have been absolutely amazing and this one was no different. Blackmail Boyfriend was absolutely incredible and I am so happy to have read it. Recommendations all around, especially if you want a quick, happy, and light read. Haley Patterson is a wonderful student, pretty but stuck in the crowd, crushing but from afar…until one day. A rumor is going around school and she takes full advantage of it. She has two brothers her are always on her case when it comes to boys, but when this rumor comes out its her chance to quite them. Bryce is the boy she has been crushing on […]

Battle of the Ships!

Are you ready for another BATTLESHIP?! If you are interested in entering into the gauntlet you can enter here. You can go up against Christy and I, a friend, or a random opponent (which is pretty awesome). It’s Lily VS. Rose! Daemon & Katy Lux Series VS. Legolas and Tauriel LOTR and The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien Why Lily chose Daemon & Katy? Where do I even start? First of all, Katy and Daemon are such great characters on their own but together it is just ten times better. They have such great dialogue which is so so SO entertaining and they make each other even better, more loveable characters. Daemon makes Katy stronger and Katy makes Daemon more compassionate and I […]
