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. :/

REVIEW! Course Correction (Rogue Rescue #1) Mia West!

 

 

Today, I am joining the Rogue Rescue team & sharing the mm marine shifter hero romance Course Correction by Mia West!

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

 

 

Playing it safe has gotten him everything – except the one guy he’s always wanted.


As leader of a covert unit of rescue swimmers, following the mission plan is a matter of professional survival for seal shifter Nate Landry. But recent closure on a colleague’s death has Nate recalculating his own trajectory.

 

It could use a little nudge and a whole lotta juice, and he only has to glance across the cockpit for just the right source of turbulence.

 

Following orders has kept him sane – until the guy giving them goes full throttle.


Chopper pilot Gil Espinoza has kept his thing for Landry on cruise control for eight long years. That the guy once chose a fellow shifter over Gil stung like hell but kept him on course.

 

Problem is: the good lieutenant just laid down new coordinates, a radical turn into uncharted waters.

 

And if there’s one thing Gil can’t do, it’s ignore an order from Nate Landry.

COURSE CORRECTION is the 1st novel in the ROGUE RESCUE series, steamy paranormal romances featuring marine-shifter heroes:


1. COURSE CORRECTION
2. CRUSH DEPTH
3. ENTRY SHOCK

 

ROGUE RESCUE Series


Saving lives is their mission.


Saving each other will be far more dangerous.

 

ROGUE RESCUE is a companion series to GRIZZLY RIM.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

 

Playing it safe and following orders has never been so hot and readers can’t help but feel the burn and intense emotions of this m/m paranormal romance. Nate and Gil are strong, captivating characters that easily grab readers’ attention and holds them hostage throughout their gripping romance that has chemistry sizzling and sending sparks flying from every page. Since these guys have been denying their attraction for quite some time, readers can easily picture the explosive passion and the intense emotional toil flows from Nate and Gil throughout this romance, also their relationship is further complicated by home situations and the fact that they work on the same rescue team.

 

The story takes place at a steady pace that keeps readers glued to the pages of this intense and heated romance and the anticipation of just where this romance will end up keeps building throughout. Readers can’t help but be entertained by the relationship between Gil and Nate as the story progresses because of some amusing and delightful interactions between the couple during their work day while some emotional turbulent interactions adds depth to the romance and ensures that readers can’t help but hope that this couple reaches their happily ever after.

4 STAR Release Week Review! Entry Shock (Rogue Rescue #3) Mia West!

 

Hello Reader! Thank for joining me! Today I have for you, a review of a m/m paranormal shifter romance with some surprising but sexy shifter types!

 

 

ABOUT THE BOOK

 


An unexpected entry…

 

Shark shifter Ian Mackey works alone.

His job is important: to protect the guys in his covert rescue swimmer unit—from predators, from the press, from each other.

 

So what if he lives alone, too? And eats alone? And sleeps alone?

Solitude works for him. Lets him focus on the job and a few favorite extracurriculars.

 

The last thing he needs is a rescue partner.

Especially one who’s prickly and stubborn and distractingly hot.

And who intends to evade Mackey in the water and out.

 

A shock to the system…

 

Trick Harper doesn’t need a damned babysitter.

He’s a veteran rescue shifter. He embraces the mission, he gets the job done, and his deafness is an asset.

 

So what if he does things his own way? Goes a little off-plan? Gets creative?Autonomy works for him. Or it did, until the one time it didn’t.

 

Now he’s chained to another shark, a hulking bruiser who pushes every button Trick’s got.

 

Especially the ones that haven’t been touched in a while.

If Mackey takes matters into his big, scarred hands, ignoring him is going to be impossible.

 

ENTRY SHOCK is the 3rd novel in the ROGUE RESCUE series, steamy paranormal romances featuring marine-shifter heroes:


1. COURSE CORRECTION
2. CRUSH DEPTH
3. ENTRY SHOCK

 

ROGUE RESCUE Series
Saving lives is their mission.
Saving each other will be far more dangerous.

 

ROGUE RESCUE is a companion series to GRIZZLY RIM.

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

 

The newest Rogue Rescue romance shocks readers with gripping emotions and thrilling suspense. Ian and Trick are two strong, captivating males that easily draw readers into their story. The relationship starts off with a hurdle to be overcome but then both move on the sizzling heat that burns between them while trying to adjust to the changes in their lives and on the team. The romance is sweet but with lots of emotional turmoil that adds depth and makes it easy for the readers to understand where these characters are coming from. Ian’s past plays a major part of the emotional turmoil and Trick is fundamental in adding a positive influence in Ian’s emotional issues, which surprises readers as well as the characters. There is a bit of a lopsided view of this couple as readers are given more detail about Ian and less about Trick, which readers may feel would make the romance a bit better, but doesn’t stop them from enjoying it.

 

The story is fast paced and flows smoothly from the pages with their searing romance but with added excitement of death defying rescue missions and an unexpected twists that answers some questions regarding Ian but adds more in relation to the team. The unique shifters and their roles in this fascinating world makes for a really great change in shifter romances and the author brings it all to vivid life with great detailing that makes it easy for the readers to imagine each and every scene. This romance can be read as a standalone story, but readers may find that reading the previous books gives them a better understanding of this fascinating world as the conclusion definitely lets readers know that there is more going on.

Sharks and Other Sea Monsters
Sharks And Other Sea Monsters - Robert Sabuda,Matthew Reinhart

Our return yesterday left us with the worst jet-lag either of us has ever experienced and this pop up book was the most complicated reading I was capable of before passing out on the couch for the duration.

 

But boy, what a pop up book it is.  I have 2 others in this series, one on Dinosaurs and one on Megafauna, and this one is at least as good as the others.  The art work is amazing, and the explanations are perfect for young readers and old readers alike; I especially appreciate the pronunciation guide for each of the ancient beasts.  I learned more than a little bit while reading/flapping the pages around and making 'nom nom nom' noises.  The cats were super impressed with my ancient beasts impersonations.

 

I highly recommend this and the other books for anyone who still looks with wonder at a well made pop up book.  No kids required.

 

 

I'm not cheeky enough to claim it, but this book would totally qualify for the Fear the Drowning Deep square of Halloween bingo 2018.  ;-)

Key West Book Post #2 - Only 1 picture in this one.
Sharks And Other Sea Monsters - Robert Sabuda,Matthew Reinhart

Hemingway House and the Hemingway cats were just one of the book highlights of my 2.5 day trip Key West.  The other was a trip to Books & Books, a non-profit bookshop run by the only living author I turn fan-girl over.  Judy Blume.  It is not hyperbole or exaggeration of any kind to say this woman was the single biggest influence in my childhood and pre-teen years.  So, no WAY was I going to miss visiting her bookstore, even if odds of her being there were slim.

 

She was there.

 

She was lovely.  I was a blithering idiot, of course.  What I could manage to say was nothing, I"m sure, that she hasn't heard a million times over the years, and I'm kicking myself for not having enough wits about me to tell her what I really appreciated about her books (that all her characters had agency and didn't need adults or friends to tell them what was right or wrong), but she was wonderful, kind and patient nevertheless.  She was preparing for an extended trip and was in a meeting when I arrived, but she paused the meeting to come out and sign my books (because of COURSE I bought some of her books), and chat with me for a few minutes.

 

 

Aside from her books, and her very presence, Books & Books is a fabulous bookshop.  I went in with ZERO intention of looking at books beyond Judy Blume's because, as I think you all know, I had already managed to accumulate a fair number of books by this time.  (*cough*four boxes*cough*)  But as I was making my way to the counter, I found the newest of the Prehistorica pop-up books, Sharks And Other Sea Monsters, and when the woman behind the counter saw me squee'ing over that one, she showed me the wonder of Ocean: A Photicular Book, which has the best holographic images I've ever seen - they honestly look like little movies on the page.  I was entranced.  It was one of a series and it was killing me to just choose one. 

 

MT had stopped at a cigar shop before meeting me at the bookstore, arriving as I was just starting to chat with JB, and in those few minutes he managed to find 3 more books to add to the pile (two are future xmas gifts) and would have added 2 others had I not already started checking out.  If this had been the first stop on our holiday instead of the last, the damage we'd have done to their inventory and our finances would have been impressive.  There were just too many interesting books screaming for attention.

 

So here's my plug: if you ever find yourself in Key West, absolutely go to Books and Books - whether you go to fan girl(boy) over Judy Blume or not, the inventory is sure to appeal to any and all book lovers.  Bring a big bag.
