In Every Generation by Kendare Blake

In Every Generation

Crystal Anne With An E comes to us from a sunny clime, though she is an indoor cat that prefers to remain pale. She is an autism consultant by day, and recently completed a degree in information science, mostly because she could and it was fun. She likes to read (obviously), watch TV while cross-stitching something geeky, play video games, beg her plants not to die in the hell heat of summer, and walk while … Continue reading In Every Generation by Kendare Blake

Books on Sale: Sweet on You by Carla de Guzman & More

Sweet on You by Carla de Guzman is $1.99! This is the first book in The Laneways series and de Guzman’s books I feel skew more new adult. A few of her titles have also been reviewed favorably on the site and this one in particular was mentioned in a Hide Your Wallet.

Books on Sale: All Stirred Up by Brianne Moore & More

RECOMMENDED: All Stirred Up by Brianne Moore is $1.99! Catherine gave this Austin-inspired contemporary romance a B:

All Stirred Up is not a book that sparkles – the atmosphere is more melancholy, with glimmers of sweetness and humour. It’s a story that requires patience – more patience, honestly, than I have – but if Persuasion is your favourite Jane Austen novel, I suspect you will love All Stirred Up. I don’t think I’ve ever read a retelling that captured the mood of the original so well.

Books on Sale: Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake & More

RECOMMENDEDThree Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake is $1.99! Elyse reviewed this one, giving it an A:

There are a couple of romances in the novel–one a love triangle but not an obnoxious one, and one that made my jaw literally drop. There’s sex too, but it happens off stage. The romances are secondary and serve to drive the plot, and aren’t the main focus of it.

Three Dark Crowns is fun. It’s dark and twisted, it’s all about lady-power, and it’s got a heroine who wears a poisonous snake for a bracelet.

September’s New Releases

September is here! And I probably could have done this post with just my input because it’s a really expensive one for me. I will also not apologize for the amount of fantasy YA coming out that I want to get my grabby hands on. But these new releases are by no means an exhaustive list of amazing books, so here are a few more popular choices to stick on your TBR pile: Sarah J. … Continue reading September’s New Releases

Books on Sale: Hunted by Meagan Spooner & More

RECOMMENDED: Hunted by Meagan Spooner is $1.99! This is a Kindle Daily Deal and it’s being price-matched. Elyse really loved this book and gave it an A:

Hunted is delightful. It’s the BatB adaptation that I didn’t know that I wanted or needed, but that kept me up reading all night. Unlike in many of versions of the fairytale, Beauty (in this case Yeva) isn’t the kindest, gentlest, “good”-est daughter of a wealthy merchant. In Hunted, she’s the strongest, the most feral.

Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake

Three Dark Crowns

I should be in bed right now. I should be getting a good night’s sleep before I start my work week tomorrow, but I’m not. All hope of being productive today or tomorrow went by the wayside when I started Three Dark Crowns this afternoon. Since I started the book I’ve done nothing but read, and now I’m reviewing it late at night because OMG YOU GUYS NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THIS. I am literally sweating right … Continue reading Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake
