College educated. Plays the violin. And he has red hair,” Delaney reads, then runs her fingers over the ends of my hair. “Do you want little redheaded babies?” I laugh. “I think I’d like the choice whether they should have red hair or not, and clearly I’m only bringing recessive genes to the equation.” Penny swipes left dramatically […]

Series Review: Luna (New Moon and Wolf Moon) by Ian McDonald

3.5 stars Avg.  Luna New moon introduces us to a new family empire *dragon* on the Moon (Luna) which makes a total of 5 dragons on Luna. Think of it all a turf wars between different gangs except this is on the Moon and they are dealing with power and resources on it. The new dragon is the Corta-Helio family with different family members having different positions in the empire. The world building of these books is excellent and so are the characters. The family and the different *dragon* dynamics is also done well. We get quite a lot of different POVs from the […]

Review: The Trouble with Mistletoe by Jill Shalvis

Rating~ 3.75 stars I enjoyed this one! This makes for a good winter read especially with Christmas and hopeful vibe it has. I’ll start of by saying that it took me quite a few chapters to warm upto Willia (I actually think this might be the one heroine I didn’t instantly connect to by Jill Shalvis). I just felt what happened with Keane when she was younger was hurtful and painful to Willa but when I found what it was I was bit confused of why she made it seem like it such it was a huge and horrible thing . I didn’t understand this […]

Short Review: Her Darkest Nightmare by Brenda Novak

An enjoyable light suspense/thriller read with a great protagonist Evelyn. The romance between her and Amaroke was done well and I really liked them together. Though the constant age difference talk in the later half got a bit on my nerves. I hadn’t read the prequel of the book (didn’t realise there was one when I started) but it didn’t effect my enjoyment of the book though I do it, it would have made this read a better one had I read the prequel. Looking forward to the next book in the series!
