Review: The Towering Sky
The Towering Sky - Katharine McGee

I received a copy from Netgalley.

 

I finished a trilogy!!!!

 

This will be a super short review because it’s going to very hard to avoid spoilers as this is the conclusion of an epic series.

 

A satisfying ending with all the questions and lose ends tied up.

 

We finally get the will-they-won’t-they answer to Rylin and Cole. Leda and Watt get a conclusion and start looking towards their futures. Watt has some pretty tough choices to make regarding his education and his super computer implant Nadia. Leda has some demons to deal with and amends to make for her crappy behaviour. The secrets between Avery and Atlas finally come full circle. Not, of course, without it’s drama. Calliope and her con artist mother have their work cut out for her when one Calliope’s former marks, who happens to be Cole’s older brother Brice turns up hot on her heels. But things take an unexpected turn. Avery makes a life changing decision.

 

Same epic world building and emotional drama as the first two. Glitz and glamor, romance and betrayal, questionable motives and morals abound. What’s not to love? As with the other two, it doesn’t take any great effort to enjoy this, it’s fun and easy to read and great ending.

 

Thank you to Netgalley and HarperCollins UK Children’s.

ARC REVIEW In A Badger Way by Shelly Laurenston

In a Badger Way (The Honey Badger Chronicles) The Honey Badger Chronicles #2, I didn't get a chance to read the first book in the series but after starting this one I didn't feel it absolutely necessary to read the first. It explains well enough how the three sisters came to be especially since one is full honey badger, Max very protective and very violent, the oldest, Charlie, is half wolf and basically a helicopter mom for the sisters, and the youngest sister Stevie is half tiger and she's... well this is her book.

Stevie is a former child prodigy in science and music but like many geniuses she has extreme social and anxiety issues. Shen was initially hired to be the bodyguard for a sixteen year old child prodigy, Kyle who lives with the sisters and whose only real friend is Stevie, but when Stevie gets asked to look into one of her ex-boyfriends because he may or may not be experimenting on hybrids like her Shen feels it's his duty to protect Stevie.

The plot takes a roundabout way of getting to the point because the characters keep getting distracted by other things, like all the sisters having to go in to see psychologist, someone hugs Stevie she freaks out and shifts and almost tears a house apart, there's a death in the family and they have to deal with honey badger drama, and of course there is the romance between Stevie and Shen. Shen is physically attracted to Stevie but he had a hard time reconciling the fact that he is older and she's freaking brilliant and he's not. Stevie doesn't care the cat part of her has already claimed him as hers it takes her literally throwing herself at him before he gets the message.

Overall, it was a great book. If you've read Shelly Laurenston before you know her style humor if not you are in for a treat, as long as you like strong, foul mouthed, sassy, crazy women who can hold their own in a fight, and in Max's case fight dirty. I love Laurenston's female characters and the guys aren't too shabby either they are strong enough to hold their own against the women and smart enough to understand them. Her writing is adventurous, humorous, and hot as heck, I still have a bunch of her books I need to read but every single one that I have read I've loved.

Review: The Everlasting Rose(The Belles #2) by Dhonielle Clayton
The Everlasting Rose (The Belles #2) - Dhonielle Clayton

 

 

In this sequel to the instant New York Times bestseller, Camille, her sister Edel, and her guard and new love Remy must race against time to find Princess Charlotte. Sophia's Imperial forces will stop at nothing to keep the rebels from returning Charlotte to the castle and her rightful place as queen. With the help of an underground resistance movement called The Iron Ladies-a society that rejects beauty treatments entirely-and the backing of alternative newspaper The Spider's Web, Camille uses her powers, her connections and her cunning to outwit her greatest nemesis, Sophia, and restore peace to Orleans.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

*I received a free copy from the publisher via Netgalley and chose to leave a voluntary review. Thank you!*

 

 

First off.... I don't comment on covers all that much but this time I have to say compared to the cover on the first book, this cover is  not my favorite

Luckily that was not the same for the book, I really enjoyed this second book in the series . I still totally love the world that Clayton has created. Still so very vibrant and enjoyable  We get to see even more of it this time around as out group splits up , that can sometime be a bad thing in a book and is not always a favorite but it really worked this time . 

I also enjoyed how much Camellia has grown and how much she believes in herself. Not just her that made a leap but everyone grew a bit in this book and since last..

Some parts were a bit slow or felt to drawn out but overall it was a very fun and enjoyable read.

If you enjoyed the first book, you will most definitely enjoy this one as well.

So overall I will rate it 4★, enjoyed it very much except the few slow spots it had for me.

I'm in the mood for "Creature Features" [Please Recommend!]

Can anyone recommend some "Creature Feature" books along the lines of Jaws, the Meg series, Jurassic Park, Congo, The Hatching, Skitter...etc.

By creature, I mean animal, bug, alien, mythical, killer plant, you name it. Creature verses humans sort of thing. Cheesy B movie types welcome. All age ranges welcome (children to adult) Short story, novella or full length novels all welcome.

 

Feel free to promo your own book, but please include a couple other recommendations, too! I do do read and reviews, but I'm honestly nobody here (hah) and bookstagram. Lol Though my Instagram is leighas_life and I have over 100 followers, though lets be honest, half are probably spam. :/

6 weeks later...

It's been about 6 weeks since I've kicked off this book adding project, and doing some quick math, and rounding down because I haven't kept exact records, I thought my BL friends might be interested in knowing that,

 

together, we've added over 2500 new books.

 

That's a lot of new books; I hope all the fantabulous people who've chipped in and made that 2500 books feel like a few dozen, are as surprised and pleased as I am.  And I hope y'all know how much I appreciate the fact that I'm part of the kind of community where so many are ready and willing to work together.

 

Here's to the next 2500; may they feel as painless as the first.  ;-)
