Every Other Day by Jennifer Lynn Barnes

Every Other DayEvery Other Day by Jennifer Lynn Barnes

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Unique. Addictive. Badass. Three words I would use to describe Every Other Day by Jennifer Lynn Barnes. I stumbled across this ebook looking for a short, fun romance story to get lost in but found myself reading late into the night whispering, “one more chapter.”

Every Other Day takes place in a world like our own but where supernatural creatures have existed for a while. Kali, a normal high school girl isn’t as normal as everyone thinks, especially her father. Kali finds herself unraveling secrets about who and what she is, while trying to not die again. Oh, and Kali might just be going crazy because an intriguing voice in her head named Zev won’t shut up.

Barnes does a fantastic job of building this world that’s half supernatural and half science. No longer are the creatures that go bump in the night stories, they’re real and even on the endangered species list. I loved reading Every Other Day and still can’t decide if I’m happy or devastated that this is standalone book. I do know that I highly recommend this book to everyone, especially if you’re in a book slump!

There are times I wish for pain so

I can feel closer to you.

 

Breath Of Fire by Amanda Bouchet

Breath of Fire (Kingmaker Chronicles #2)Breath of Fire by Amanda Bouchet

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

After what seemed like forever I finally sat down and read Breathe Of Fire by Amanda Bouchet. I should say I devoured the second book in Bouchet’s Kingmaker Chronicles because there was little sleep. This series has quickly become a favorite of mine as it’s a mythology encased romantic adventure.

Breath Of Fire starts immediately after A Promise Of Fire,” jumping right into “Cat” Catalia Fisa dealing with the aftermath of the events in the first book. From the start, there’s drama, action, romance and my favorite, a dose of Greek mythology. I loved that this second book involved more mythology and Bouchet does a great job intertwining it with the characters stories.

I loved Cat and Griffin’s story. Their relationship progresses to the point that Griffin is more than ready to take the next step and I love his support of Cat. In this book a lot of secondary characters are pushed to the front. We learn a lot more about Kato, Jocasta, Carver and Flynn. I really look forward to learning more about Piers which I have a hunch we’ll get in the next book!

So the wait for Heart on Fire begins! For anyone who has already read the Kingmaker Chronicles, I recommend rereading them and for everyone else I absolutely recommend you start reading.

Green Rider by Kristen Britain

Green Rider (Green Rider, #1)Green Rider by Kristen Britain

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

While looking for my next great epic fantasy read I came across Kristen Britain’s Green Rider series! Again, a great book I found when I wasn’t even looking. Green Rider is the first book in the series and I should have known that I would love this book because of three things. First, the series follows a woman named Karigan G’ladheon. Second, there’s action and I’m not talking about a few sword fights but life and death type of situations. (fyi, there’s no such thing as too much action) And third, there’s magic involved!

The Green Rider is an excellent book if you’re looking to follow a woman through a perilous journey she didn’t ask to take. Britain does a great job of creating a female character who acknowledges her faults but still perseveres through the face of danger. Though I was looking for my next epic fantasy when discovering Green Rider, I wouldn’t classy this first book as high fantasy or what I refer to as epic fantasy like The Lord of the Rings or the Sword of Truth series, which was the type of book I was looking for. This book was lighter in its mood and simpler in writing.

No matter what type of genre/style you’re looking for in your next book, I definitely recommend checking out Green Rider by Kristen Britain!

Throwback Thursday Review: Where the Heart Is by Billie Letts

Where the Heart IsWhere the Heart Is by Billie Letts

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I first read this book a long time ago after seeing the movie, with Natalie Portman played Novalee Nation. Natalie Portman became one of my favorite actors and I had to read the book after watching the movie. P.S., it didn’t disappoint!

Where the Heart Is is a soft heart warming story. I love the pacing and mood throughout the book. There is a trustful mood set from start to finish that allows the reader to have faith that everything will work out in the end. I love that Letts was able to create this mood as it helps develop the characters.I really recommend the movie to everyone and to give the book a shot. I just love the story and its one of my favorites!

Throwback Thursday Review: In Bed with a Highlander by Maya Banks

In Bed with a Highlander (McCabe Trilogy, #1)In Bed with a Highlander by Maya Banks

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

If you’re looking for a period romance featuring a sexy Highlander, then this is a great book! I zoomed through this book in a day! A satisfying story,  it featuring great chemistry between the two main characters. Paired with solid writing, the pace produces an urge to finish the story asap. After finishing this book I found out it’s part of a trilogy and it left me wanting more. I look forward to reading the next book!

Throwback Thursday Review: Dragonswood by Janet Lee Carey

Dragonswood (Wilde Island Chronicles, #2)Dragonswood by Janet Lee Carey

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Interesting YA book that hooked me with the mention of dragons. I enjoyed the characters, especially Tess and Bash but would have liked to see the author go deeper into their characters. While reading I felt the author only touched the surface of the characters and could have fleshed them out more and in doing so would have made this a solid unforgettable YA book.

I really do recommend this book if you’re looking for a quick fantastical YA read. This book only took me six hours to get through.
