ebooks are my thang

I used to read and review books. Now I just read for fun :)

The Hook Up

The Hook Up - Kristen Callihan Some of *THE HOTTEST* hook-up scenes I have ever read. I mean, seriously. WOW. Just when you think you have read it all! I thoroughly enjoy this book, the only thing that really detracted for me is when a hero has to chase the heroine for like 80% of the book. It was a bit much and is just not a trope ("no no, we can't be together! I have issues and just can't tell you about them!") I enjoy, but the book overall was awesome and I can't wait for the next one.

Dark Places

Dark Places - Gillian Flynn Whatever this author writes, I will read. Her ability to weave a super dark story that keeps you guessing throughout is unmatched.

Sharp Objects

Sharp Objects - Gillian Flynn Thoroughly engrossing. I could not stop listening, no matter how much my stomach turned. It took me a while to really digest what I had experienced in this story, and I keep thinking about it long after the fact. I can honestly say that whatever this author writes, I will read.

Rock Addiction

Rock Addiction (Rock Kiss) (Volume 1) - Nalini Singh I need to mention that I adore Nalini Singh. It was a no-brainer to try this book in her new series, because I love her other two series. But this book had two things about it that I cannot stand. insta-love AND a virgin heroine, all within the first 50 pages. BARRRRRRFFFFFFFF I hung on and the book did get more engaging, but I just did not like it. This book (and likely the series, tho I'm not closed to trying it again) is not for me.

Gone Girl: A Novel

Gone Girl: A Novel - Gillian Flynn What the HELL did I just listen to? LOL

House Immortal (House Immortal, #1)

House Immortal (House Immortal, #1) - Devon Monk Devon Monk knows how to write ensemble casts, and kickass strong chick first person POV. Already an Allie Beckstrom series fan, I bought this without reading the blurb. I knew whatever she wrote, I'd like it - and I was totally not disappointed. The entire concept surrounding this new series is unique, and I found myself immediately sucked in. I was up most of the night because I needed to keep reading, and now I have a book hangover. Thank goodness the next book is out in roughly 6 months or I would be devastated!


Havoc - Ann Aguirre I was glued to the pages, and did not want this book to end. ARG!!!! I waited a year for this and now have to wait another year for the conclusion. AWESOME book!!

Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking

Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking - Susan  Cain I found it to be somewhat anecdotal and not the inspiration I was looking for.


Evernight - Kristen Callihan *swoon*
This book went by way too fast. And I say this EVERY time I finish a book in this series - waiting for the next one is going to be AGONY! Especially the excellent setup for it!!!
This series continues to be an auto-buy for me.

Fair Game

Fair Game  - Holter Graham, Patricia Briggs Superb.


Truly  - Ruthie Knox Thoroughly engaging romance with a tortured bee keeper hero. I love Ruthie Knox.

Clean Sweep

Clean Sweep -  Ilona Andrews I listened to the audio version of this on my commute and thoroughly enjoyed it.

Reaper's Stand

Reaper's Stand - Joanna Wylde I did not want this book to end. OMG this series. I need more more more, each book is NEVER ENOUGH. She did Picnic's story right. Loved his story - NEED THE NEXT ONE NOW PLEEEEEEEEEEAASE. Full review closer to Release date.

The Fiery Cross

The Fiery Cross - Diana Gabaldon Diana Gabaldon HATES Roger.

So. The first book [b:Outlander|10964|Outlander (Outlander, #1)|Diana Gabaldon|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1402600310s/10964.jpg|2489796] is A MA ZING. Amazing. My best advice is to stop there if you are interested in an HEA.

The second book [b:Dragonfly in Amber|5364|Dragonfly in Amber (Outlander, #2)|Diana Gabaldon|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1393788871s/5364.jpg|2866304] will have you in knots. It is very well done, and I adored it, but you know how it's going to end from the beginning, and it's brutally stressful. The end will have you grabbing for book three, even though you just got done reading 700+pages.

The third book [b:Voyager|10987|Voyager (Outlander, #3)|Diana Gabaldon|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1388191457s/10987.jpg|1131570], FOR ME, just went downhill from there (see my review on it for why), tho it SEEMS to be people's favorite.

I enjoyed the fourth book [b:Drums of Autumn|10988|Drums of Autumn (Outlander, #4)|Diana Gabaldon|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1388191458s/10988.jpg|3123704] more than the third, but it was close to 900 pages, and I was wiped out upon completing it. I still felt affection for all the character enough to continue on to the 5th book, which leads me to this review....

This book (the 5th)? 1000 pages of every minute detail you don't need to know. The entire story could have been told in 100 pages. I skimmed it just so I could advance to the next book because most say she picks up steam again then, but this book was a CHORE.

In summary: Read Outlander. Stop there. If you're able to speed read, go forward, but go forward knowing that the stories get more and more ridiculous with each book. :)

He's So Fine

He's So Fine - Jill Shalvis Why am I still reading this series? That is my review. :(

Gunmetal Magic

Gunmetal Magic -  Ilona Andrews Favorite quote: "Our original plan waved goodbye to us, stuck its thumb in its mouth, strained, and exploded." this captures the humorous narration that makes these books for me. Honestly, Ilona Andrews are immune from making missteps. Everything they put together is gold.
