Wires And Nerve by Marissa Meyer
Wires and Nerve, Volume 1 - Marissa Meyer,Douglas Holgate

Epic!!
I love The Lunar Chronicles, and this graphic novel is a perfect addition to an already fantastic series! I can't wait to read the second one when it comes out next year. 
All of our favorite characters are back, and they are brought to life with the illustrations. Those illustrations are awesome, and being a fan of the series, it is nice to see what exactly Marissa Meyer had in mind when she created the characters. It's quite close to what I dreamed up in my mind when reading the novels.
I love this book and all the rest in the series, so I can't recommend them enough, but I still will till the end of time!

hoopla audio needs some serious fine-tuning
Of Beast and Beauty - Stacey Jay

I just couldn't listen to this...hoopla audio app is so bad sometimes.  The audio is so slow, and you can speed it up, but the only issue is it sounds like the narrator just sucked in some helium.  It is beyond crappy...

 

Maybe, I'll try reading this instead...idk.

Wicked Abyss by Kresley (I love this author) Cole
Wicked Abyss - Kresley Cole

I absolutely love this series, Immortals After Dark. I set alarms for release dates, I get desparate enough to troll fanfic, I even have my tattoo dude drawing a tat for them. Something interesting... Before drawing the thing he is reading the books, he loves them, just wishes the porn scenes (as he calls them) weren't so frequent, I have no problem with their frequency ;).

 

This is a Beauty and the Beast retelling, probably the best I have ever read, and I have read quite a few of them. I could see a great resemble between this and Disney's animated movie, I haven't seen the new one yet though, I really want to. We get relatively new characters, and the story is set in a new to us realm were most of the previous characters are not present, so not a lot of revisiting going on, we do get brief glimpses though. I do wish we got to see a bit more of the Valkyries, I miss them crazy bitches! 

 

I loved the couple in this and feel they were perfect. The female, Lila. She is smart, tricksy, bold, and tough as nails. The male, Sian, is a hulk of a beast. He is also smart and tricksy, but he has some past baggage that is ruling his thoughts and actions. He does a lot of growing up during the pages of this story. They have great chemistry and I thoroughly enjoying reading of their battle to love. 

 

This is another match made by Nix. There is so much going on. Nix is trying to make her best hand before dreaded ascension is full force. I am considering a reread of the story. Can't wait for the next book. Beauty

Entertaining Historical Romance
The Beast Who Loved Me: A Fairytale Rete... The Beast Who Loved Me: A Fairytale Retelling (Regency Fairy Twists Book 2) - Samantha Holt

The Beast Who Loved Me: A Fairytale Retelling by Samantha Holt is a fairly quick read, a perfect choice for those historical romance fans with limited time for reading.  Ms Holt has once again delivered a well-written book.  Isabel and Wilde's story is loaded with drama, humor and sizzle.  I loved the characters in this story, a fantastic fit.  I enjoyed reading The Beast Who Loved Me and look forward to reading more from Samantha Holt in the future.  The Beast Who Loved me is book 2 of the Regency Fairy Twists Series but can be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

⇝My Thoughts⇜

 

I really liked this, is it without faults, no, but the faults did not take away from my overall enjoyment.

The writing starts out a little choppy, but evens itself out for the most part, about a 1/3 of the way through.  At least I think it did…or I could have just adjusted to the style.  I liked the futuristic aspect of this, it just doesn't always come off as believable.  There are elements that transpire that seem over-the-top and hard to fathom but, ultimately the sweet love story of Alainn and Lorccan is what kept me reading.  Plus, the oddly weird, but mostly likable assortment of supporting characters…especially the monkeys.  I loved the monkeys!

⇝Sex Factor⇜  This is a Beauty and the Beast spin for the adult crowd, while it is explicit at times it's not overdone at all.
