Quote of the Week

“A book is the only place in which you can examine a fragile thought without breaking it, or explore an explosive idea without fear it will go off in your face. It is one of the few havens remaining where a man’s mind can get both provocation and privacy. " ~ Edward P. Morgan

Book Review:

Jumping in mid-series seems to be a habit of mine lately: so many books I want to read, it’s difficult to keep everything straight and get to things in order.  Fortunately, I’m also not a reader who minds approaching a series back to front, and the Club Sin books are perfectly crafted for readers like me, as each story is self-contained within the larger series common story thread.

Fire Spell: Ivy Grace Spell Series #3 by T.A. Foster

I’m returning to present the third book in the ongoing story of Ivy Grace, the time-traveling novelist who just happens to have her own powers as a witch, and uses her spell casting to great effect in this series.

Book Review:

My favorite of the series so far, T.A. Foster has managed to bring all of the elements together in a cohesive story, giving Ivy some interesting romantic interests and another series of questions to solve in her ongoing story.  Fire Spell could have been a let-down after the action-packed events in New Orleans, but Ivy’s connection to her grandmother and the similarities in their lives presented a whole new set of questions for Ivy and readers, along with some wonderfully developed romantic interests for Ivy.

No in Between: Inside Out #4 by Lisa Renee Jones

Book Review:

Let’s start with the simplest bits: this is not a story that you can jump in at the middle – you will want to read it from the beginning – and since the earlier three novel-length books read quickly – it is no hardship.  AND – there’s a bonus – ALL of the books in this series are on sale (first time ever) and that makes this a perfect time to get the whole series.

In this installment, the relationship of Chris and Sara almost becomes a character itself as the pressures from the outside world, and Sara’s own fears of not being enough take a toll on their communication.  With the police looming, the whereabouts of Rebecca under question and Allure Gallery is under siege by press and paparazzi alike.  With a suspect in custody, and the legal machinations grinding to get that same suspect released on bail, the stress of being back in San Francisco, under constant surveillance and worries from how they left Paris, the inherent tension is already bowstring taut.

AudioBook Review A Hero’s Guide to Deadly Dragons: How to Train Your Dragon #6 by Cressida Cowell

AudioBook Review

Hiccup is turning 12, and when you only have a birthday every four years, you really want to make your day special.  But, it seems as if all of the fates have conspired against him: all he wanted was a quiet day- perhaps to read or write a bit, and to not have to participate in Viking training.

But, this is a story about the Hairy Hooligans and Hiccup’s struggle as he tries to meet the expectations of his father and the tribe, all while trying to hold onto his own way of doing things – even when they are contrary to the nature of a Viking, at least in the Haddock family. Read more

Gift by Andrea J. Buchanan

Book Review:

Gift by Andrea J. Buchanan has an interesting premise with Daisy’s mysterious gift and some hints of ghostie messaging, I thought it would be a fun pre-Halloween read for teens and fans of YA stories.

Daisy has a good heart and a huge secret, one that she found difficult to tell her best friend Danielle. In the grand scheme of things, Daisy really isn’t too different from any other high school sophomore, even if she doesn’t have as much money.  In fact school is not nearly as bad as she expected until she befriends Vivi, and is told of Vivi’s spirit friend Patrick.  Vivi is troubled and rather obsessed with Patrick, and is contemplating suicide to be with him forever.  But, there is more to Patrick than meets the eye, and soon Danielle is dreaming of long-ago events, not all pleasant, as it appears the spirits are attempting to finish that which was undone.  Read more

A Highlander In Peril: Gunn Guardsmen #3 by Kara Griffin

Book Review:

I can’t help it – historic romance with a Scottish theme and I am all in. Set in the 13th century,  Kara Griffin weaves the sights, sounds, and political machinations into the story in a way that makes the elements come alive, and enhances the tension and the romance.

Lady Frances is a package deal for Sean: hand-picked by his Uncle, he is obligated by tradition and position to accept the match, even though he isn’t necessarily thrilled at the outset.  To Sean, Frances is intriguing, and she engages his need to protect, especially as she arrives with a small child.   Read more
