The Hunger Games Trilogy

The Hunger Games Trilogy BoxsetThe Hunger Games Trilogy Boxset by Suzanne Collins
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I never got around to reading this series, though I bought the bundle back in September when it was on sale, until I started seeing the trailers for the movie. Then I saw an extended trailer at the theater and had to read it right now. I’ll be going to see the movie, so I knew I had to read the books first.

Wicked Games by Jill Myles

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
If you’re looking for good self-published romances and/or you’re a Survivor fan, I highly recommend Wicked Games by Jill Myles. It was my Tropical Storm Irene read and I really enjoyed it. The heroine gets sucked into doing a Survivor-esque reality show and it’s a fun, fast, sexy read. Usually I avoid first-person but in Wicked Games it worked for me, especially with the quotes from the hero opening … Read More »

Review: Storm’s Heart by Thea Harrison

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I rarely read shifter books. And by rarely, I mean almost never. And, of the ones I’ve read, almost all were written by friends. I pretty much ignored early mentions of Dragon Bound. The buzz grew, but I still skimmed over it. Shifters don’t really fire my engine and the word-of-mouth I was seeing included words like magic, Fae and such. Really not my … Read More »

Chasing Fire by Nora Roberts

Chasing FireChasing Fire by Nora Roberts
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I was expecting this to be like The Search, which I enjoyed but felt was weighed down by the research. The S&R details in The Search were interesting, but I didn’t need a master class in Sit & Stay 101 before even meeting the hero. It’s obvious an insane amount of research went into Chasing Fire, as well, but it adds flavor and intensity without slowing the story … Read More »
