And Murdo, oh Murdo...


This series is just an absolute joy to read. I enjoyed it even more the second time and kind of want to start a reread already. David and Murdo are just so, so lovely and it's just all so, so lovely.

Review: Motorcycle Man
Motorcycle Man - Kristen Ashley

1st read - 9 July to 10 July 2013
2nd read - 18 February to 20 February 2014
3rd read - 7 July to 9 July 2016



"You entered the game, it's my game babe, you play it my way."


I just love this book and I absolutely adore Kane 'Tack' Allen. Even when he is being a douche I love him. I'm still planning on upping sticks and heading off to find him.

This was the start of my Chaos series reread. These men are the absolute shit. I'd most likely kill them if they were mine but I love reading about them!!



There is not a lot I can really say about this book. It's hard to review the ones you really love. Tack is crude and can be rude but my goodness he is hawt and sexy and just all kinds of awesome, yummy and alphalishious. Tyra is sweet and sassy and brave and I am terribly jealous of her.


The problem with this book?


I have to constantly remind myself that quitting my job, abandoning the boyfriend, friends and family. Upping sticks, moving to Denver, Colorado and getting a job in a MC garage/club is not a good idea and most likely will not lead to Kane 'Tack' Allen. Actually it just plain won't. Yup, just need to keep reminding myself of that.

The Burning Sky ( Elemental Trilogy #1)
The Burning Sky - Sherry Thomas


Still a great read this second time around.

However, I decided to remove a star to its initial five star rating, because there were some things that could have been more developed.

For instance, in the last pages when Titus is flying the Wyvern and the Bane and Madame Inquisitor are on his tail, I couldn't "see" what he did to thwart them.As well as other parts of the world building that could have been more developed

(spoiler show)


Also I could have passed without the magical wands. -_-

What can I say? My mind immediately goes to Harry Potter.

"A messy business, rescuing princes." (pg 423)

1rt read (16/02/2014)

I remember that the first time I saw this book's cover with the name Sherry Thomas on it, my first thought was something along the lines of: This must be a different writer!

But no, this is the work of author Sherry Thomas by whom I have read a number of historical romances by now.
BTW: I love mostly everything about them, the writing, the setting, the characters....perhaps with the exception of some of their *cough* heroes. (Those guys could drive a saint to ask for divorce!! Honestly, guys?
Less pride and grudge "time". Okay?)
But enough about historical romance. This is a fantasy work.

And what a fantastical, mind blowing imagination it contains on its 449 pages (+ Notes)!

The world building has a lot of potential to it. It took me a re-read to notice that it could have been more developed. Although the main thing, the "roots" they are well established.

 Then there's the characters who despite their fantastical nature, "felt and acted" as real as one could wish.
I was warned by friends that the first chapter could be a little trickier to get into.
I decided to take that as a challenge.
And it turns out that it was only trickier in the sense that us readers, have to move from a non magic world, to one full of magical adventures and engaging characters who have quests and challenges to fulfil.
In this story, there's magical books which are portals for magical places.
Places where some fairy tales exist amongst new and dark perils. Stories where people can die inside its pages...
There's a boy on a quest.
A young prince determined to fulfil his role in his family's prophecy.

Titus will stop at nothing, until the dark force that took over his land is stopped.
Not even if that means the death of him.
There's a girl who believed herself nothing more than an average mage...
But on a time that power draws power, Iolanthe will find out that she's much more than she thought possible.
The characters, like I said before, were masterfully created.
I loved how the relationship between Titus and Iolanthe evolved. The stages of it: The clash between them, the forced partnership, the reluctant admiration, until the unavoidable friendship. And yes, maybe love.
This story has such a perfectly complex _but done right and never boring! _ universe in it, that it was just amazing!!
The romance. It has one.
But it never obfuscates the plot, and the characters don't suddenly start acting like mindless typical ya zombie characters, whom you just want to see pushed of a cliff....
There's no insta love. No mushy declarations. Basically there's no idiocy involved.
Basically, this is a hundred percent tried and approved anti-BS book!!
So, if like me, you like books with strong plots, strong characters and a fluid writing, this story's for you!!
I loved it so much, that I don't even mind the waiting for the second book. You know why?
Because by the time the second is released, I'll just re-read this one again! ;)

I Am Pusheen the Cat - Claire Belton
Let's start with the beginning, shall we?
Who is this elusive character named Pusheen?
What does she want from life... besides food... and food... and sleep... and did I mentioned a full plate of cat food?
What are her goals in life? *eat a large amount of food*

Friends... *food can be your friend!*

Hobbies... you know? Besides eating a lot and looking pretty and absolutely *pettable* I am told that this word does not exist, well, we will make it exist! Shut up, Firefox, before I start calling you Firefly...)

Pusheen is proud of who she is *this means no light food, humans!*, but most especially of hers Toe Beans!

But I am getting ahead of myself... I will let Pusheen do the "talking":

Things you should know about Pusheen ;)

But Pusheen is much more than the food she eats!

She is electronically... savy!

She's a great baker!

Basically she's like... us! Only smaller and furrier... well this should be evaluated on a case to case scenario!
So, what are you waiting for to start reading this cute and extremely funny book?
I promise you, it is funny!!
It made me, laugh, and I am the average Dickens character in everyday life!!

So, I'll end this deep, deep review with another of Pusheen's thoughts:
