Review: The Ex Hex (Ex Hex #1) by Erin Sterling

This book I snagged on a whim as my Book of the Month pick for October. It sounded like funny fluff reading and even if I haven’t been a fan of Erin Sterling AKA Rachel Hawkins, I was still excited to read something a little funny and distracting for the bewitching season. And yes I know that it is now November and I am just now getting around to posting my review of this one. Things have been a little crazy so while I did read this one back in October my review calendar has been pretty full so here we are.

So what exactly attracted to me to this book? Well the cover is cute and it sounded so funny—-drunk witch mistakenly hexes ex-boyfriend using a harvest apple candle. I was dying of laughter just picturing it. Erin Sterling is a pen name for Rachel Hawkins who wrote The Wife Upstairs—which I wasn’t a fan of. But just because I wasn’t a fan of the thriller she wrote, doesn’t mean that I won’t enjoy a witchy romance for Halloween. So when I was struggling with my spooky Halloween book for the month, I decided to flip the script and read this one instead.

If you are wanting a funny quick read that has some romance and witch-craft then I think you will love this book. It wasn’t earth shattering literature but it was a fun way to spend a few days enjoying some funny moments and electrifying chemistry and of course a talking cat!

Special Feature: The Rules of Enchantment by Wendy Tardieu

Fantasy and romance always makes for an interesting combo in my opinion. I mean seriously, magic and fantasy are romantic just by themselves but when you add in actual romantic love I just think it’s a great combo!

Today I have this lovely new fantasy/romance mash up on my blog for special feature! This one comes in at just under 200 pages so it will make a quick read so if you are into romance and fantasy, then I think this could be a fun quick read for you!

This book has been labeled an ‘erotic’ fantasy adventure but from some of the reviews I have been reading, many say it’s more of a romance than erotica. Either way keep reading to get all the details!

Review: A Heart of Blood and Ashes (A Gathering of Dragons #1) by Milla Vane

Say hello to my longest read of the year. Not necessarily the longest book in terms of pages, but rather in terms of how long it took me to actually read this one!

I started this one at the beginning of July people and here it is September and I am just now finishing it! In fact I finished it last week and to be honest that shocked me.

I fully expected to finish this book in only a few sittings and sadly I just didn’t But there are a couple of reasons for that—I had a lot of other books going and this one wasn’t a partner review so it was more of a ‘when I get to it’ type book. That and I started a new job and just generally got waylaid when it came to reading this one. Continue reading “Review: A Heart of Blood and Ashes (A Gathering of Dragons #1) by Milla Vane”

Review: The Enforcer Enigma (San Andreas Shifters #3) by Gail Carriger

Last month I had the pleasure of reading one Gail Carriger’s latest books and this month I was able to squeeze this one in.

As you might recall, I love her books because her world building is so rich and detailed with so many fun characters that stand out and that I want to read about!

This series has been a fun read and focuses on shifters and werewolves which normally aren’t really my fav but I love Carriger and she never disappoints! Continue reading “Review: The Enforcer Enigma (San Andreas Shifters #3) by Gail Carriger”

Review: Defy or Defend (Delightfully Deadly #2) by Gail Carriger

If there is one author that I have always had good luck reading—-it’s Gail Carriger. I discovered her Parasol Protectorate series years ago and fell head over heels in love with it.

Since then I have read may of her other spin off novels and series most set in the same world as the Parasol Protectorate series. I adore her spunky and sassy characters that make up her world but I also love that many of her characters are LGBTQ, while others are not.

She isn’t afraid to write bold characters and doesn’t conform to traditional gender roles in her novels which I love. I also know that whenever I pick up one of her books, I am always going to be in for a treat! Continue reading “Review: Defy or Defend (Delightfully Deadly #2) by Gail Carriger”
