This month I’ve read a varied bunch of books. Some fabulous, while others…not so much. There’s one that shines more than the others though, and that’s DARKFEVER by Karen Marie Moning. I’d heard so many good things about this series and can’t think why I didn’t pick it up sooner. It’s a fantastic read with great characters and a strong, exciting plot. And the hero is to die for *ah Barrons*. I would definitely recommend this book – a great start to a series. An 8/10 from me – review coming soon.
I have to say I haven’t really had a great reading month and have only managed to get through three books, none of which have blown me away and one which I really disliked However, I did like THE GOBLIN KING by Shona Husk, as it had a really enjoyable love story and a yummy tortured hero, which makes it my rec of the month! Rating a solid 6/10. I’m sure April will bring more bookish delights!
This month I’ve read books from a variety of different genres, each with a paranormal element. A couple of these books have been brilliant, the other two didn’t capture my attention quite as much… Most prominently, the book that stood out for me was SHADOW OPS: CONTROL POINT by Myke Cole, I expected to hate the army based plotline but was absolutely pulled in and loved every minute of it. The characters were great, and I couldn’t stop reading until I’d reached the end, so many plot twists vying for my attention! I highly recommend it!
Having been my first month reviewing I have to say it has been a more varied month than normal. I have a habit of sticking to authors I know, but this month has been a challenge, seeing me try out new authors. I have to say I have enjoyed trying them out, if not the stories themselves. But without a doubt, my favourite book and the one I would definitely recommend has to be LOVER REBORN by J. R. Ward. The series is a total favourite of mine and I was thrilled to have been given the chance to review it. As ever in this series, the characters come to life with a vengeance (enough to make me feel queasy!) and had me sobbing like a baby over the misfortunes of life, even for vampires. A resounding 10/10 from me – my review will be up tomorrow.
This month has been a bit of a mixed bag for me really. The stand out book though has to be DEADWORLD by J. N. Duncan. It was one of those books that just grabs you from the first page and doesn’t let up untill the end. Duncan is an author to watch. A 9/10 for me, and you can read my review here.
