Dead Witch Walking (The Hollows, #1)
4.03
Er...ok. So this is not going to be a complimentary review, as you've probably already guessed by the rating.

I am a character-driven reader. I don't...more

The Mark of Athena (The Heroes of Olympus, #3)

After Reading:

Frankly, this was sub-par and not at all worthy of Rick Riordan and the characters he's created (By that I mean Percy and Annabeth, not...more

Gunmetal Magic (Kate Daniels, #5.5)

After Reading:
It would seem my prayers went unanswered after all. The book is like Bayou Moon, aka the one that everyone loved to pieces but which I...more

Bayou Moon (The Edge, #2)
4.09
This is the first Ilona Andrews book that didn't do it for me.

ON THE EDGE was their very first book I read - and it took me a while to warm up to it,...more

Bloodfever (Fever, #2)
4.33
Ha. Ok.

I still think that the writing is much tighter than KMM's highlander series, but the characters leave a mighty lot to be desired.

Tempted by Her Innocent Kiss (Pregnancy & Passion, #3)

It would seem that Maya Banks' writing does not work for me.

I hadn't read the other books in the 'Pregnancy and Passion' series, so I might b missing...more

Claimed by the Highland Warrior (MacKinloch Clan, #1)

The hero was so whiny! The heroine was annoying. The story was bland. I did not enjoy this one.

Black Arts (Jane Yellowrock, #7)

At this point I am frankly tired.

We are - what? - 7 books into a series? And et we are still making rookie mistakes. Jane and Leo have been working to...more

Shadow Bound (Unbound, #2)

After Bood bound left me on tenterhooks, I couldn't wait to read Shadow Bound. It's probably my biggest disappointment of 2012 so far. Here's the thin...more

Surrender (MacKinnon’s Rangers,  #1)
4.14
Massive Yawn.

I didn't enjoy this book very much. In fact, I skim-read so much that it should probably be put as a DNF and not a "read" book. Very, ve...more

Fifth Grave Past the Light (Charley Davidson, #5)

A whole lot of nothing happens in this book.

For me, the series is getting old. Ms. Jones does not appear to have a direction - there is no sense of an...more

Dark and Stormy Knights

The Innocent's Dark Seduction (Harlequin Presents, #2855)
3.37
Why, Jennie Lucas, why?

And why do the editors think it is a good idea to publish stories like these in 2009, for the love of all things holy?!

Demon Hunts (Walker Papers, #5)

For the most part, this series leads me to think of what it might have been, instead of what it now is. It could easily have been a great series, but...more

The strongest emotion I feel after reading this book is disgruntlement (if that's a word at all). Allie Beckstrom's tale started out well enough. We'r...more

This one was a disappointment for me.

It is one of those books that could almost have been a rollicking fun ride. Operative word here: almost.

I don't like Riley Jenson, not even a little bit. I don't like the world or the mythology Ms Arthur has created. I'm pre...more

Love and Respect: The Love She Most Desires and the Respect He Desperately Needs

The more I think about/re-read bits of this one, the more I dislike it, and the more I'm convinced it's not a wholly healthy/Christian POV
