City of Ashes

City of Ashes

My Review City of Ashes is the second in The Mortal Instruments series and just as good as the first.  City of Bones threw some wrenches into the romance and the frustration with that is just as palpable in this book.  The action is kicked up yet another notch and the twists and turns just don’t end! The […]

City of Bones

City of Bones

My Review I was engrossed in City of Bones from the moment I started turning the pages, no matter how late to the game I am for this series!  The characters are fun and varied, the story is rich with mythology and action, and there is a nice mix of humor and romance, too. The cast […]

Hana

Hana

My Review I really enjoyed this novella!  There are a lot of moments in this novella that weren’t in Delirium and others that were, but we get to see them in a totally different light in Hana. Hana becomes much more of a three-dimensional character in this book.  We see much more than the fun-loving, rebellious girl […]

Alex

Alex

My Review Alex is the last of the Delirium novellas, letting us get to know Alex through his own eyes instead of through Lena’s.  Most of it told of his time in the crypts and then his escape.  It was interesting to see his character change during his time away, but it made me even less sure […]

Annabel

Annabel

My Review Annabel is the story of Lena’s mother and it really gives readers of the series a little bit of insight to her.  It starts years before Lena was born and shares Annabel’s experience with the cure and her time in the crypts.  Annabel grew up as society was changing and she rebelled against […]

Requiem

Requiem

My Review I have such mixed opinions on this last book in the Delirium series.  I have enjoyed the series, but the pacing and story in this one seemed to stall a little bit.  And the ending… I just don’t know how I feel about it! I liked the back and forth POVs between Lena and Hana. […]

Mistletoe in Manhattan

Mistletoe in Manhattan

My Review This is the second Talli Roland I’ve read and it was as much fun as the first!  Holly is an event planner who works for her parents’ company, throwing Christmas parties throughout the year.  She hates it and wants nothing more than to branch out and make it big.  When a British ex-pat […]

The North Pole Prize

The North Pole Prize

My Review The North Pole Prize is a sweet short story with all of the whimsy of the North Pole and the elves.  The blend of childhood favorites with a contemporary twist was so much fun!  Garrett is an engineer at the North Pole, a Scotsman with a troubled past who even makes an appearance in […]

Pandemonium

Pandemonium

My Review I loved Delirium and I loved Pandemonium just as much, if not more!  I enjoyed the “now and then” structure of it.  It gave us backstory a bit at a time and let the story of the now keep moving forward and that was an interesting mix. Everything about Lena’s life has turned on […]
