"I'm trying to understand how can anyone recommend this series. My fault if it's YA, I should have checked before buying (it was 1$, not a big deal). But god almighty a grown woman recommending a book about a 17 yo stupid, immature girl is a WTF. I mean, I wouldn't recommend it to my teen niece...there's more in life than boys and god love triangles. Real only in bad books.." 3 hours, 23 min ago

A must for fans waiting the next novels. It's made of a cute vignette of a 18 yo Jane and two short stories, one of which introduced the new heroine from the author's next series. I am really intrigued, but if Ricky Bo is going into it I'm not sure I...more

3 1/2

Really cute, nice world, great heroine (and plot with its twists). A woe-is-me hero that caused really unnecessary pain for lack of any idea of what clear communication is. And this is my only nit. It was crystal clear to me than a minimum amoun...more

Really nice idea behind the book, an interesting world-building, characters that you could both believe in and root for. There's not much depth and growth for them, but then the book isn't that long. She's not my usual strong woman, she's merely stub...more

Update: Has someone noticed their reviews disappearing from the feed? I noticed that if I don't log in, my review of trace of magic disappears from the list (at the moment 3 pages long) of ratings/reviews. It's nowhere. Only if I filter the reviews w...more

Wickedly Dangerous reminded me of a well-known cocktail drink ordered at an unknown joint. You don't really know how good the barman is, but more or less you know what taste the drink is going to have. Then, when the drink arrives, you realize that t...more

Snowball in Hell by Josh Lanyon
Snowball in Hell (Doyle and Spain, #1)
by Josh Lanyon (Goodreads Author)
read in September, 2014
Rate this book
Clear rating
A mystery/crime story with a dash of romance (or rather a promise), set in the '40s. Lanyon can sketch a story in few bold, dark strokes. Being different is never easy, but I can't imagine what it must have meant being gay in those years (during the...more

<2

Unborn is a mix of mythologies, Greek and Judeo-Christian, in a urban fantasy setting. I've seen this mix some where else, but where in Cursed it was well woven, here it lacks any good foundation on which to base the new world. So for all the bo...more

Sometimes we readers are a funny bunch. Last year in August I was moaning and bitching I had to wait at least a year for the sequel to Forsaken by the Others.

Then, this year I left this book on my TBR list close to 2 months, terrified it wouldn'...more
