Fiction Friday- Book Review: The Faerie Guardian (Creepy Hollow #1) by Rachel Morgan

The Faerie Guardian (Creepy Hollow, #1)The Faerie Guardian by Rachel  Morgan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I found a copy of this book online on Smashwords. I’m not going to lie- I had incredibly low expectations simply because the book was free. Except it is absolutely amazing.I love the world-building. This is such a different book. It’s intriguing, it’s mysterious and it is impossible to put this book down! I can’t wait to read the rest of the series. I thought the romance between Nate and Violet was a bit forced but Nate was a sweet character.This may not deal with the same supernatural creatures but this is my new Harry Potter.

Book Review: Faelorehn (The Otherworld Series #1) by Jenna Elizabeth Johnson

Faelorehn (The Otherworld Series, #1)
Faelorehn by Jenna Elizabeth Johnson

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This was a great read but it ends just when the plot is at a peak (for me anyway). I also wish that the high school students weren’t such pains in the ass but that is how high school students are. (God I really hated them in this novel).
Meghan has eyes that change colour, hears voices and has the ability to predict the future. She’s accepted the fact that’s she’s weird but doesn’t know why. Until she meets Cade
Cade introduces her to a world of Gods and Goddesses, magical creatures and mythology. But Cade has mysteries and secrets of his own.
This book was slow at first but it was amazing when it picked up. My biggest issue is that this is a series that needs to be read all at once.

Book Review: The Wild Hunt by Ron C. Nieto

The Wild HuntThe Wild Hunt by Ron C. Nieto
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I found a free copy of this book on Amazon. Honestly I only read this because of the guy on the cover. Yes, I was interested in the plot but I was supposed to be reading for college until the cover distracted me. Oh well.Lily goes to visit her (strange but lovable) grandmother. However her grandmother’s usual eccentric ways have now become downright crazy. Or is Lily the one losing her mind? Items in the house keep disappearing and reappearing and Lily sees things that aren’t there. However it isn’t long before Lily discovers she isn’t crazy. No, she’s simply meant to be a faerie doctor like her gran. Her now missing gran. Lily struggles to fit in this new world she’s thrust into but she has no way out. Her grandmother’s safety depends on her. Lily joins the mysterious Troy as they search for answers as to what really happened to her grandmother. I thought this book was so intriguing with the different kinds of fae and the two different fae courts. I don’t know much about fae so this was such an adventure to read. Of course the chemistry between Troy and Lily certainly didn’t hurt matters either. This book will entertain any lover of fae and fantasy.

Movie Review: 50 Shades of Black

Is a movie really successful if it hasn’t been made into a spoof?
And a Wayan brothers spoof is like the king of all spoofs.
“50 Shades of Black” made such an impression on me that I think I might prefer it to the original.
This movie is almost a scene-by-scene parody of “50 Shades of Grey” and had me roaring with laughter.
From references to the original movie and it’s movie to original lines that kicked ass, this movie is my new favorite.
I really hope there’s going to be a “Fifty Shades Darker” spoof. This movie is like “Scary Movie” on crack.

Fiction Friday: Book Review- Every Move She Makes (Who’s Watching Now #1) by Jannine Gallant

Every Move She Makes (Who's Watching Now, #1)Every Move She Makes by Jannine Gallant
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book was a total gem and I expected no less. Rachel leads a calm life with her three children. When she meets Kane she is instantly attracted to him. But a trip to test the waters of their budding relationship turns deadly when it’s revealed that Rachel has a crazy stalker.Obviously this book frustrated me when I had no idea who the stalker was and yes I loved every minute of it regardless. I did eventually figure out who her stalker was which didn’t diminish the fun of the book.This book is excellently written with an intriguing plot

November 9 by Colleen Hoover

November 9November 9 by Colleen Hoover
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This story has a sweet idea but falls flat towards the end. It seems like the characters are dragging out their romance simply because November 9 is a special day for them. If you look past that obvious flaw this is an amazing book, well-written with intriguing characters. Fallon and Ben have an instant connection and because she is moving away, decide to meet every year on November 9. However life gets in the way and as they grow, they struggle to keep to their arrangement.

Book Review: Again the Magic by Lisa Kleypas

A prequel to the Wallflower series, Again The Magic tells the story of the romance of the two Marsdens girls, Livia and Aline.
Aline has been in love with McKenna-the stable boy- since she was a little girl. But once their affair is exposed she’s forced to lie that she never loved him in order to remove him from the estate and save him from her fathers wrath.
Now years later, McKenna has returned and he is seeking revenge on Aline. He is accompanied by handsome American Mr Shaw who is instantly taken by Aline’s younger sister Olivia.
For some reason this novel took me longer than most to read(3 days) and so I’m dead tired now. But I loved every minute of it. McKenna was a bit too dark and brooding for me but the romance between Livia and Mr Shaw provided a perfect light contrast.
My only regret is that I didn’t read this before I started the ‘Wallflowers’ series.

Every Vow She Breaks (Who’s Watching Now #3) by Jannine Gallant

Every Vow She Breaks (Who's Watching Now, #3)Every Vow She Breaks by Jannine Gallant
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I love how each title in this series is from a song. This book deals with a broken vow and brings a variety of possible suspects. The reader is keep on edge throughout the novel. Claire has made a vow and broken it. And now she’s going to pay. But the question is who is the guy leaving her threatening messages? Her ex-husband? Her ex-boyfriend who she once thought she would marry? Her cheating ex who she was going to marry? Or is it just some crazy person who is obsessed with her? This book was both romantic and thrilling. I couldn’t stop until I found out precisely who was stalking Claire and every few seconds my top suspect changed. I loved this book. It was like an insane roller-coaster ride and I enjoyed every second of it. I will definitely be reading the other books in this series.

Book Review: With Malice by Eileen Cook

With MaliceWith Malice by Eileen Cook
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I love Eileen Cook’s books. They’re well-written and comforting. I like to think of them as the hot chocolate of the book world. You can generally be sure of a great feel-good story in an Eileen Cook novel. Note that I said “generally”. This book is not one of those occasions. Yes it was well-written and impossible to put down like other books of hers that I’ve read. But if Cook’s other works are hot chocolate this one is a dark coffee. It’s strong and will keep you up all night.Jill wakes up in the hospital with no memory of the past six weeks. She has no memory of her trip to Italy, no memory of her best friend’s death and especially no memory of killing her. Simone and Jill had been friends since fourth grade. Jill may not have her memory but she knows she would never kill her best friend.However the media, her school, her friends, family and the Italian police all seem to think differently.As more evidence comes to light, even Jill starts to doubt her innocence. This book was impossible to put down. I suspected the ending but it was still a shock. Fans of mystery and Eileen Cook will love this book. It’s so different from the other books of hers I’ve read but it’s also so damned great!Get yourself a copy ASAP!
