Sucker Punch Book Review

Liezel’s Thoughts:
Honestly, I had a lot of hesitations about this 27th book in the Vampire Hunter Series. It takes Anita Blake away from Jean-Claude and drops her in the middle of another case in Michigan. I felt as if the main couple in the series never gets their own time. Yeah, can you tell I am a little disappointed?
Despite that, however, I became fully engrossed in Sucker Punch. There weren’t any graphic arduer feedings that …

The Wedding Game Book Review

Liezel’s Thoughts:
The Wedding Game had me literally in tears – not the wrong kind but the very, very good kind. My tears weren’t just brought on by the laughing out loud hilarity but how uplifting it made me feel. It was exactly what I needed this lonely Valentine’s Day. What was so amazing about it was uh…. everything!
The heroine Luna Rossi was terrific. Luna is one of those characters you wish was a real person …

Cemetery Boys Book Review

Liezel’s Thoughts:
If you asked what was the best thing that I loved most about this book, I wouldn’t be able to pinpoint one specific element. The first thing that caught my attention was the main character – Yadriel. His strength is unparalleled. I am not talking about physical strength rather the strength in his character, in his personality.
To come out to his family as being trans is a challenge all on its own but to …

Chain of Gold Book Review

Liezel’s Thoughts:
I have yet to read most of Cassandra Clare’s books but after finishing this story, my love for  YA fiction is completely renewed. I  am now determined to read the entire series from beginning to end.
I do have to admit, it was difficult for me to fully commit to reading this book. Introducing so many different characters is difficult for me but as the story flows I understood why this was necessary. I learned …

The Cabin Book Review

Liezel’s Thoughts:
They said at the end that this story that they wrote was “heavy at times”… for me, that was an understatement. It was heavy from beginning to end. I’m a widow… the main characters of the book are both widows. Need I say more?
What I loved so much about this book was how the writers poured so much emotion into this story. I felt their loss, their despair, the emptiness… it all felt genuine. …

Queen of Nothing Book Review

Liezel’s Thoughts:
Say it isn’t so! Did these series have to end? This is definitely one of those series that I wish that could last forever. Why, you might ask? Jude, of course. She is one of those smart, strong-willed, and independent heroines that you could never get enough of.
Time and time again, they try to underestimate her. It was her mortality that made her even better. From the very start, Jude is given tasks to test …

Headlines Book Review

Thoughts:
I am a mood reader – so, I guess I wasn’t in the mood for this book? It was disappointing, really. I know you are going to ask me… Did I even read the first 2 books in the series? Yes, I did, and I immensely enjoyed them, thank you very much.
What was disappointing was I expected so much more. Instead, what I got was a long drawn out whining session from a supporting character. I …

Our Way Book Review

Liezel’s Thoughts:
 I didn’t read the synopsis nor check out the reviews before reading “Our Way.” I wanted that element of surprise on my side, and sure enough, it started off as being pleasantly surprised.
Early on, I thought it was terrific witnessing every tiny detail on how Eliza and Nathan’s beautiful friendship unfolded. It definitely was an excellent foundation for a beautiful friendship but what made things complicated was Nathan’s sexuality. The way the author described …

Wicked Hour Book Review

Liezel’s Thoughts:
The Chicagoland Vampires series is definitely one of the best paranormal series to date, BUT … man, after reading the Heirs of Chicagoland, it has fast become my favorite. Come on, what is there not to like when you combine a vampire with that of a shifter’s world?
The characters – Elisa Sullivan and Connor Keene, are what make this series. What is so amazing about Elisa Sullivan is despite how influential her parents are, …

Sea of Ruin Book Review

Liezel’s Thoughts:
I’ve put Sea of Ruin on the back burner for weeks. The idea of a historical romance did not appeal to me. Considering it was a story written by Pam Godwin, I decided to give it a shot.  I am glad that I did because, without a doubt, the Sea of Ruin is one of the best stories I’ve read this year.
The Sea of Ruin truly is quite the adventure. It is about a …
