The start and finish of this was great, but the middle had too much running around. All the other books in this series were so great it was almost impossible for me to put them down, but this one I found my attention wandering.

Golem in my Glovebox is the fourth book in the Zoey Donovan series. Her mother is still missing only now she’s been taken by a killer who has already killed the board and has taken all the Aegises that she had just rescued from the collector. Zoey will have to head across the country in a roadtrip that could end in blood. At least she won’t have to drive across the country alone she’s joined by her sexy reaper boyfriend Riley. As well as a tiny golem that Bernice created but unlike her other gol ...more

I've been a huge fan of this series since I first discovered it, it's perfect light hearted and funny urban fantasy and I know I can pick up any book in the series when I'm in the mood for something that's going to make me giggle. I absolutely love the number of different Hidden creatures that R.L. Naquin has included in the series, she always manages to introduce us to something new with each book and this instalment brings golem, Griswald, who is accompanying Zoey and Riley on a road
A serial killer is on the loose, and Zoey and her friends have to capture him.

The body count in this book is high, and the murders gruesome and graphic. Although the tone is still witty at times, these books have taken a turn towards the grim. Instead of fun urban fantasy, this was more of a Jessica Jones gritty thriller, which wasn't really what I signed up for.

I can't even begin to describe how much I love this series! The thing that attracted me first were the gorgeous covers and the idea of a Closet Monster than can bake. From reading the first book, I fell in love with Maurice and this series. I actually put off reading these last few books because it meant that the series was finished! Anyway, I've read the last three and now I'm finally getting round to reviewing them.

3 1/2 stars This is book 4 in a series. If you haven't read the 3 previous books you will not get as much out of it. I really recommend you read the first 3 before starting this one.

While I did like this book I'm not sure that I'd call it my favorite in the series. It's basically one continuous road trip with Zoey and Riley. BUT, it's an important road trip because it's the first real chance Zoey gets to search for her mother. It has all the makings of a real road trip, fun beginnings, goofy n

This book was fantastic. Novel-wise, it was a bit of a deviation from the previous books, but it is completely on par with the level of writing and reading enjoyment as the books that come before. I laughed, I cried, I squeaked out happy sounds, I shook my fist at the injustices and gasped at the revelations. I wanted to take home all of the characters and give them hugs. R.L. Naquin has the writing talent that puts her on the same level as the best urban fantasy writers out there, in my opinion ...more
When I first started this series I wondered if I would finish the first book. It was a little bit ditzyat the start. But I really enjoyed it and the rest of the series is just as good. I read this as soon as it came out.

È passato quasi un anno dall’ultima volta che ho preso in mano questa serie (mea culpa). Come se non bastasse, a maggio la Blue Nocturne ha chiuso i battenti e posso dire che già mi manca. Ok, ultimamente si erano persi a ristampare libri già pubblicati, ma è grazie a loro se molti romanzi urban fantasy sono stati portati in Italia… a prezzo stracciato poi. E, fatalità, erano pure carini. Insomma, diciamo che è solo grazie a loro se la zia Gena ha fatto fortuna qui.

I fell in love with Zoey and Maurice in Monster in my Closet, where she found out that she is an empath and she saved her best friend from being drained by an incubus. Maurice is just Maurice, he’s a wonderful closet monster and I absolutely adore him!
The adventures continued in Pooka in my Pantry, where the Leprechaun mafia moves into town, and the only one who truly can stop them is… You guessed right; Zoey.

I was introduced to the Monster Haven books on another blog a couple of years ago. I loved the look of the covers and the idea behind the books. When I won a copy of the first book, I was thrilled, but put off reading it. I continued to oooh and ahhh over each new book cover and add them to my TBR pile. I even introduced them to my sister and she read hers, while mine sat, still unread. That changed though when I saw that Golem in My Glovebox was on Netgalley.

This book is pretty much at the level its predecessor was. Unfortunately it reaches this level from the other direction. It made me wait until I read the next book because I had to ask myself if I was still interested in the series.

While I found the previous book to be overburdened and ultimately falling flat, here we have a good ending that is reached after slogging through boredom.
The story is your basic serial killer/scavenger hunt affair with a bit of a roadstory in as well. And almost none

The fourth book in the Monster Haven series is an intriguing and fascinating fantasy read. The Hidden government is in shambles and with only string of deadly clues to follow, Zoey and Riley set off on a cross-country chase to stop the murders of the captured Aegises. Will Zoey become the final victim of this new evil or will she finally be reunited with her mother?

I was a bit disappointed. I was expecting to find a fun and amusing read. I did get a decent urban fantasy read filled with a ton of different supernatural characters including some that must have been inspired by Pixar movies (closet, attic and under the bed monsters). The only character that got much page time was Zoey, our main character and Griswold, the golem. Riley, the reaper, and Zoey's main squeeze is there, but he basically assists her.

GOLEM IN MY GLOVEBOX is a wonderful addition to the Monster Haven series which has always been delightfully quirky and fun with some truly touching moments that make these characters seem all the more real. The story has a different feel to it as it takes place on a long road trip and because of that road trip to find the missing Aegises the pace of the story is in constant motion as Zoey tries to find her mother. Aside from the rush to find the kidnapp
If Fairies in My Fireplace amped up the Monster Have series, then Golem in My Glovebox takes it to a whole new level. This is the first time that Zoey really gets to be out in the field and I think it’s a really great place for her to be. In this new setting, Zoey was stronger, more take charge. She was totally kick butt, even when she was unsure of herself. I loved seeing her and Riley having time together too and I liked that it wasn’t all lovey dovey. No matter how much you love someone, bein ...more

I've said it before and I will say it again, I love the Monster Haven series. "Golem in My Glovebox" is another great addition. This time, Zoey's house is over flowing with refugees from the monster world seeking asylum. She and Riley decide to get away for the weekend but not before she receives a phone call from, Art, Riley's boss informing her that he has a lead on where her mother may be found.

Instead of a weekend for lovers Zoey and Riley head off to see Art and Bernice. Prior to departure,

Trolls, closet monsters, and mermaids are just a few of the many different types.

With a pocket sized golem in her glovebox, a sexy reaper boyfriend, and the help from a few members of the OGRE squad ...more

Questa saga è sempre una continua sorpresa. Il primo libro mi colpì per lo stile sbarazzino, la protagonista buffa ma dolcissima e una serie di creature decisamente non comuni (a chi serve un Edward quando si può avere un Maurice?), la continuai con piacere e il piacere aumentò volume per volume vedendo che lo stile rimaneva invariato ma le trame si approfondivano, si toccavano argomenti delicati, si univano nuovi personaggi mai banali o superflui e le creature continuavano ad essere originali e ...more

Yay for road trips LOL This is the 4th book of the series, and it's fun as ever!! These characters are all so lovable and I just love this series!! It's fun, it's touching, and it's a great addition to the fantasy world! Zoey and Riley are trying to find the missing Aegis, and we get to see them in action, just on the road. Zoey wants her mom back ASAP, and she's not gunna stop until she finds her.

I always enjoy diving back into Zoey's Monster filled world and Golem in My Glovebox was a delightful addition to a great series.

In Golem in My Glovebox, we get Zoey and her Reaper boyfriend traveling all around the country trying to thwart a serial killer and maybe finally saving Zoey's mother.

I really don't wanna give anything away, but let's just say that R.L. Naquin has brought up the creepy level a few notches and I love

I've really enjoyed this whole series to the point I'd give 4.5 stars. I'd hold back from the five star rating because it's not for everybody. I enjoyed the banter and the zany characters but it's like Gilmore Girls or Psych in the regards it's not for everybody. I however was hooked after reading the first one, Monster in my Closet. My only real complaint was that I felt there was too much recap in the subsequent books. If you're like me and read all of them back to back then it'

R.L. Naquin keeps churning out these wonderful stories of supernatural creatures finding solace with an Aegis (a 'hiddens' protector.)

When I start any of these books I just set back, open my mind and let the words of the story take me away to a world teeming with supernatural creatures and new adventures. I feel as if Zoey, Riley and Maurice are old friends of mine and they have stopped by for a visit to tell me about their latest adventure.

During these times they make me laugh, cry or gasp but

I enjoyed Golem in My Glovebox, it is always fun to catch up with Zoey - she is quirky and very appealing - and I really like her crew: Riley, Sara and Maurice. Plus I liked the new additions to the cast as well - especially golem in the glovebox:)

I love this series. Zoey loves what she does and that's saving the Hidden. These are the books where you feel the compassion and love flowing. But this book was especially chilling. You have a 106 year old person stuck in the body of a 6 year old and she is very angry and out for revenge. She gets it in the most bizarre and deadly ways she can. To think that someone can control your mind and make you kill yourself is terrifying. You feel so much for Zoey as they are driving back and forth across ...more
