Recent Release Review! Later Gator (Southern Fried Sass #1 / Love Spells) Julia Mills!
Later Gator - Julia Mills

 

 

Welcome to Hairy Wart! Home of the SOUTHERN FRIED SASS DETECTIVE AGENCY and the DRAGONETTES - proof that it's not the size of the scales but the SASS in the flames that makes the Guardsma...ahem, I mean, Guardswoman. Where the Tofu is always Southern Fried and the Soul Food is vegetarian, 'cause it just wouldn't be right to eat your neighbors.

 

When the mood strikes and the need for change is too strong to ignore, most people move to the big city or the mountains, heck, some even head to the beach.
Not me. No way. That would be way too easy. No L.A., Aspen, or Miami for this Witch.

 

Hairy Wart, LA, is where I landed.

Not only is it the Southern Fried Tofu capital of the world, but this blink-and-you-miss-it ‘burg with a population of Ninety-nine-point-five, (Do not ask.) and a mayor who happens to be a seven-foot Pink Bunny when the mood strikes, just might be the home of the craftiest chicken-napping, rock-wielding crazy killer I've ever come up against.

 

To say I have bitten off more than I can chew is like saying the Grand Canyon is a pothole. However, I absolutely refuse to admit defeat. Especially not with Sherriff Sexy Pants dogging my every step and making me all hot and bothered. Whoever said a Gator Shifter can’t make a couple yards of denim really, really happy they became a pair of Wranglers never met Beauregard St. Croix. He takes a bite outta crime in an up close and personal kinda way that I’m liking a little more every day.

 

With a mighty swish of my wand and my sisters by my side, I have made it my mission to rid Hairy Wart of all things nefarious and make the streets safe for everybody – scaled, furry, feathered, or otherwise. No case too small, no lawbreaker too evil. We’re here to help!

 

Bubble, bubble, are you in trouble? Not to worry, we'll be there on the double. No need to fear. No need to fret. We're Southern Fried Sass, Baby. We'll save the day, and my friends, you should take that bet.

 

 


“Later Gator” is a sassy, spirited read with funtabulous characters that has readers chuckling as they get to know them.

 

The romance in the story sizzles with lots of chemistry as the couple fight their attraction with lots of snarky comments but the relationship can’t be denied when it is this full of heated passion and sass. The fast paced plot keeps readers on their toes even while it keeps them in stitches as three witch sisters, dragonettes, and gator shifters take on a banished witch and try to save the day.

 

I have to say that I quite enjoyed my visit to Hairy Wart, LA with its fascinating characters, the quirky town, unusual types of shifters and the “Southern Fried Sass” that went along with it so I am definitely looking forward to reading the next book in the series.

Mom of two rockin' girls, Reader of everything, Author of The Dragon Guards series and many more surprises to come!

 

I am a sarcastic,sometimes foul-mouthed, not afraid to drink a beer, always southern woman with 2 of the most amazing teenage daughters,
a menagerie of animals and a voracious appetite for reading who recently decided to write the storied running through her brain. I read my first book, Dr Suess' Cat in The Hat by myself at 4 and was hooked.


I believe a good book along with shoes, makeup and purses will never let a girl down and that all heroes of all the books I have ever read or will ever write pale in comparison to my daddy! I am a sucker for a happy ending and love some hot sweaty sex with a healthy dose of romance.


I am still working on my story but believe it will contain all of the above with as much SPICE as I can work into it. CHEERS!

Witches Abroad (Discworld)
Witches Abroad - Terry Pratchett,Nigel Planer
Witches Abroad - Terry Pratchett

An excellent riff on fairy tales.  I'm not actually sure what to say about it beyond that.  If you've read any of the discworld books, this one won't disappoint you.  

 

I listened to the audiobook, and Nigel Planer did an excellent job, though I disliked his Magrat and Ella choices; his voices for them both made them sound dull and stupid. On the other hand, I've also listened to other Pratchett books narrated by Celia Imrie and I really disliked her Granny Weatherwax voice; Planer gets Granny just right - she's the crone without hurting your ear drums. 

 

The plays on words are always my favorite part of Pratchett books and Witches Abroad did not disappoint (Emberella = Cinderella).  I also loved the we finally saw Granny's magic in a very decisive show; I hope it won't be the only time we see it.

Release Day Review! Wild Hunger (Heirs of Chicagoland #1) Chloe Neill!
Wild Hunger - Chloe Neill

 

 

In the first thrilling installment of Chloe Neill's spinoff to the New York Times bestselling Chicagoland Vampires series, a new vampire will find out just how deep blood ties run.

 

As the only vampire child ever born, some believed Elisa Sullivan had all the luck. But the magic that helped bring her into the world left her with a dark secret. Shifter Connor Keene, the only son of North American Central Pack Apex Gabriel Keene, is the only one she trusts with it. But she's a vampire and the daughter of a Master and a Sentinel, and he's prince of the Pack and its future king.

When the assassination of a diplomat brings old feuds to the fore again, Elisa and Connor must choose between love and family, between honor and obligation, before Chicago disappears forever.

 


“Wild Hunger” is an excellent and fascinating start to the “Chicagoland Vampires” spin off series “Heirs of Chicagoland” It continues with the fascinating and well developed world with the brilliant mix of characters from the previous series and new ones. All of which are all really strong, compelling characters that easily draw readers in and hold them captive throughout the book.

 

Elisa has a dark secret and the only person she trusts with that secret is Gabriel Keene, who she has always had a sort of frienemy relationship. That relationship adds romance to the story as they both slowly realize that there may just be more between them and readers can practically feel the chemistry sizzling between them, but the relationship has a few obstacles which keeps readers in suspense of just what will become of that attraction.

 

The smooth flowing plot is fast paced and full of twists that surprise readers during all of the thrills and excitement that takes place during the story, starting with the assassination of a diplomat and continuing with lots of intrigue, unknown enemies, rising tensions between the supernaturals and magical mysteries and battles which ensures that the readers never have a chance to become bored. There is also additional intrigue and interest involving Elisa and her dark secret and also with Lulu and her magic which further draws readers in and ensures that they want to know more.

 

There was no way that I could put “Wild Hunger” down, once I began reading and I really excited about that because this was one highly anticipated book and it seems that this new series will live up to the fascinating and wonderful world of the previous one. “The Heirs of Chicagoland” is off to a thrilling start and it definitely ensures that readers will want more.

Review: A Discovery of Witches (All Souls Trilogy #1) by Deborah Harkness
A Discovery of Witches - Deborah Harkness

 

 

Deep in the stacks of Oxford's Bodleian Library, young scholar Diana Bishop unwittingly calls up a bewitched alchemical manuscript in the course of her research. Descended from an old and distinguished line of witches, Diana wants nothing to do with sorcery; so after a furtive glance and a few notes, she banishes the book to the stacks. But her discovery sets a fantastical underworld stirring, and a horde of daemons, witches, and vampires soon descends upon the library. Diana has stumbled upon a coveted treasure lost for centuries-and she is the only creature who can break its spell.

 

 

   

 

 

   

This book was more or less an impulse buy. I saw the trailer for the movie or TV show and thought it sounded interesting so I went on Amazon and ordered me, luckily ,a cheap used copy. Did I regret buying and reading it, no not really but maybe next time just get the book from the library.

Overall it was okay, not the worse but defiantly not the best.

The beginning was slow and sooo much info dumping that I was close to giving up. We were just thrown a whole ton of background information after the next load, it was way too much. I mean after 80 pages I knew all of her history, her parents history, both sites, the witches history and how they and other creatures exists, that was just the first 80 pages and it’s not like she was short on pages we do get over 500 some pages.

After that it did get a little better and I could enjoy the book a bit more.

I did like the overall story line, the different creatures, and also how she used a Bishop witch to be the main character, which was rather clever. I liked the magic system and how vampire and demons were endangered in a way. But sometimes I had the feeling I’m reading the NA version of Twilight.

Diana was okay but often annoying, not only her personality but also her choices, she seemed to go one way or the other, no in between. Like she either trusted no one or she trusted everyone way to fast, which of course got her in trouble. She also seemed to think with other parts of her body more than her brain ,that is for sure.

Oh their relationship. It just seemed to jump too. I actually had to track back a couple chapters to see if I missed something because it was from one peck to test a reaction to a full blown relationship the next minute. That just felt odd I thought I missed something. Also once they were a together the romance defiantly took over the story and book, which is sad because you could have both nicely balanced.

Matthew, I had a hate-love relationship with. On the one hand I really liked him and on the other I really didn’t and never could fully trust him, not even sure why. He reminded me of Vampire Bill from True Blood, the TV version, maybe that is why lol.

Overall it was an okay read and I might continue on to see what will happen but I’m not in a hurry. I need to recover from the eye rolling that this book made me do so many times.

I really have a hard time rating this book, because some aspects I really liked but others I really didn’t so I will just go with 2 ½★ - 3★ on this book .
