Book Review: A Darkness Absolute (Casey Duncan #2)

Kelley Armstrong is not one to disappoint and A Darkness Absolute was no exception. It’s different from a lot of other books she writes because usually they’re focus on paranormal. I think it’s great that she can write books like this one that involve lots of mystery with her usual hint of romance. I love the whole concept of Rockton in A Darkness Absolute (and the previous book of course). It’s a secret town that’s run by everyone in it and (lucky us) we get to see more of how it works in A Darkness Absolute. Everyone has to work to […]

Book Review: Betrayals (Cainsville #4)

Book Review: Betrayals (Cainsville #4)

I feel like I need to stop reviewing Kelley Armstrong books because I swear all my reviews are the same. I can’t help but fall in love with her writing as soon as I read the first line. This book was no different. I was a little disappointed in the last book because it felt like the plot and characters weren’t going anywhere. That was probably because it was the third book in the series and that happens. I was much happier with where this book ended up. I felt like some characters (*cough cough* Gabriel) finally started getting themselves […]

Arrival Day: Welcome to Canada!

Arrival Day: Welcome to Canada!

Hello lovelies and welcome to our first stop on our travels across the world! This is the beginning of a 3 month journey visiting all kinds of new places that we’ve (mostly) only seen in books. Maybe one day we’ll see all these places in person but for now this is the next best thing. Am I right? We decided to start somewhere easy. So many books take place in the US and that’s fine but we’re trying to move away from that a bit since it can get to be a little repetitive. We want to ease you into our […]

Book Talk: Forest of Ruin (Age of Legends #3)

I’m 99% sure it’s impossible for me to not love a Kelley Armstrong book. Seriously! Or maybe she’s just that incredible (which I’d believe). I loved the sister relationship in this book. I don’t think there’s enough of those, especially in fantasy. Sometimes there’s the whole younger.older sibling thing going on but it was nice to see sisters as equals. I think that’s probably my favourite part of this whole series. These sisters really work together and know each other. Also they eat have a special guardian (a pet) who helps watch over them and I really love how they […]

Book Talk: Undone by Katey Wolfe

I obviously love everything Kelley Armstrong writes but this book only made me love her even more. I knew she was great at writing romance (and she did warn us that this book was a lot steamier than everything she’s written so far) but this went above and beyond. I loved the romance in this book. I thought it was cute but also incredibly steamy, which I didn’t mind at all. I don’t often read romance books but I couldn’t help loving this one. I thought the characters were well developed for a novel this short. We knew enough about them […]

Book Talk: The Masked Truth by Kelley Armstrong

Book Talk: The Masked Truth by Kelley Armstrong

I loved the whole idea of this book. I was hesitant when beginning it because I find a lot of the time mental illness isn’t done well in YA books. I haven’t found a good one, or one that doesn’t make the victim seem weak. This book did the opposite. It made the characters suffering with mental illness look strong and I liked that. It was a pleasant surprise for me but I knew I’d like anything Kelley wrote. I loved the way that mental illness was portrayed. The characters were stronger for having gone through these things even though […]

Review: Deceptions (Cainsville #3)

Review: Deceptions (Cainsville #3)

Initial Thoughts I always have high expectations going into Kelley’s books. How can I not? My New BFF I love Olivia every time I read about her. She never stands by and accepts what’s happening. She’s always fighting and searching to find out more about a situation. I also love how unfazed she is about her “destiny”. She knows she gets to pick her own life and she fights for that right. I love that about her! She’s really an inspiring female lead. My Crush Gabriel gets hotter and hotter every book. I’m a little tired of waiting for him […]

Review: City of the Lost (Casey Duncan #1)

Cover I love these covers. They aren’t the typical pretty girl in a pretty dress. They’re simple and they work. Initial Thoughts I love Kelley Armstrong and after reading some of the Nadia Stafford series, I knew she could write mystery/thriller just as good as she can write paranormal. I had VERY high expectations here. My New BFF I’d be bff’s with Casey in a heartbeat. I though she was an incredible main character! Even though she has this horrible past, she eventually starts moving past it and living her life. I loved how loyal she was to her best […]

Review: Empire of Night (Age of Legends #2)

Cover I’m loving the art on this cover. It’s so creepy and cool! They’re doing a great job so far with cover art in this series. Keep up the great work! Initial Thoughts I love everything ever written by Kelley Armstrong and she has yet to disappoint. I expected great things from this book! My New BFF I think Moira is my favourite character. I like Ashyn too but I feel like I can relate to Moira more. She’s not afraid to fight to get out of a tough situation. I just find myself waiting for her point of view […]
