Fifty Shades of Grey (Fifty Shades, #1)
3.67

Slave to Sensation (Psy-Changeling, #1)

Good god, I should take off a star for the awful cover. It's like some cheesy ad for those sex pills you see at gas stations.

Trashy romance in the gui...more

Even though I admit to reading all sorts of trash, I'm still embarrassed I read this book. But to my defense I skimmed through most of it. I don't kno...more

Follow My Lead

(3.5 stars)

Not bad for regency romance! And definitely better than the cover leads you to believe.

For being a book whose cover features a shirtless guy wearing a shiny leather jacket and showing off his washboard abs, The Iron Duke was quite good!...more

Thorn Queen (Dark Swan, #2)

**spoiler alert** I dove eagerly into Thorn Queen as soon as I finished reading Storm Born. Richelle Mead is a straight-forward writer and an excellen...more

The Duke of Shadows

I needed something *different* after reading Blood Meridian: Or the Evening Redness in the West. Something to cleanse my palette. I saw this in my Goo...more

Angels' Blood (Guild Hunter, #1)

I think this is Singh's newer series and a nice change from her Psy-Changling series which I got sick of. Angel's Blood is about Elena, a vampire hunt...more

Jane Eyre

What a timeless classic! This was my first time reading Jane Eyre and I can see myself revisiting it again in a few years. Initially, I thought the be...more

The Sky Is Everywhere

Silent on the Moor (Lady Julia, #3)

This one definitely had a Bronte vibe to it. A little bit of Wuthering Heights, and a little bit of Jane Eyre. Very gothic and moorish. Unlike the oth...more

Pale Fire

Wow! I was a fan of Nabokov's prose thanks to Lolita but that book has nothing on this one. Pale Fire is many-layered, many-framed and at times makes...more

Unclaimed (Turner, #2)

I mostly read this because of the reversal of roles since it's the man who's chaste and virginal in this one instead. But it wasn't much of a reversal...more
