Black Rainbow

Black Rainbow - J.J. McAvoy
"With everyone in class vying to be one of the twelve disciples—a group of twelve students that Professor Black takes under his wing—tensions run high."

Kind of reminds me of How to Get Away with Murder,....

Down London Road

Down London Road - Samantha Young Source: Library

I was so nervous to read Down London Road. I fell in love with On Dublin Street after finally getting around to reading it. When I came back to Goodreads to look and see what was next in the series I was surprised with all the negative reviews for this book. I was wary, feeling I wouldn't enjoy this as much as On Dublin Street. Now, I didn't LOVE it compared to the first book but it wasn't as horrible as everyone made it out to be.

We first meet Johanna "Jo" in book one and she comes off as a gold digger, but when I read this book I really got to know her character and my heart broke for her and what she's been through! Cam, well, Cam was a completely ass on more than one occasion but I loved his character and the chemistry between them! I do feel like their story dragged out a bit longer than necessary, and I felt like the last couple of chapters just came out of no where. However, I still managed to enjoy this one :).

Scarlet

Scarlet - Marissa Meyer I've been trying to spread out reading this series since Winter doesn't come out until November!! I had a rough start with the The Lunar Chronicles, when I first bought Cinder I managed to make it about 190 something pages in before I had to put it down. I just couldn't get into it at all. But luckily I picked Cinder back up to buddy read with my friend Jae and LOVED IT!!
"His eyes were unnaturally green, like sour grapes still on the vine. Scarlet's grip tightened on the plate and she suddenly understood Emilie's swooning. He has these eyes..."
Scarlet & Wolf = <3!!!
YES!!!!! Wolf, you had me from your unnaturally green eyes!! The amount of swooning I did in this book is unreal. Loved them from the beginning but that last scene with them, oh the feels!! The blushing, stammering over words, the shyness, and the whole alpha female part...SWOOON <3!!!!
"Scarlet and Wolf are saying gushy things in the galley," Iko said."
IKO<3!!! After reading Cinder all I really cared about was Iko. In all honest, I really could care less for Cinder in this book. All I cared about was Scarlet and Wolf, and of course Iko! And I know that Cinder is the main character but I felt like her chapters were some what flat compared to the first book. Maybe Marissa Meyer did that on purpose to not steal the spotlight from S&W, I don't know. Overall, I loved this book! This series just keeps getting better and better! Can't wait to start Cress :D

Risky Negotiations

Risky Negotiations - Elizabeth Lennox Actually really enjoyed this one! Laci & Sal are quite the pair, I'm not a huge fan of the ending though...

Wrong Bed, Right Guy

Wrong Bed, Right Guy - Katee Robert 5+ Stars!!

AMAZING!!!! I was sold after reading the back of this at the Toronto International Book Fair last year. I absolutely LOVED Wrong Bed, Right Guy. I couldn't stop laughing, like who sneaks into someone's bed?! Horrible idea but it worked out so well :)

Seducing Cinderella

Seducing Cinderella - Gina L. Maxwell 4.5 Stars!

LOVED IT!!!

In Bed with the Competition

In Bed with the Competition - J.K. Coi 3.5 Stars!!



Lover Enshrined

Lover Enshrined - J.R. Ward **3.5 I don't know who I want to hit more, Phury or the Wizard Stars**

Source: library
I've been putting off reading this because I just can't stand Phury. If only I could skip this book o.O. Well, wish me luck!

03/10/15 Update: Lover Enshrined wasn't as bad as I expected it to be. Was Phury annoying? Yes. Were there times that I wanted to just punch him or smack him senseless (not like he had much sense to begin with...)? More times than I can count. Was Phury a complete ass? YES!! But I some how did still in joy this a little, granted some of the lesser & Lash parts I found myself skimming through. My favourite parts always seem to have involved John, Qhuinn, and Blay!! I can't wait to get to there books! Overall, definitely not as good as the previous 5 books but still somewhat enjoyable.

One Night of Sin (An After Hours Novella)

One Night of Sin (An After Hours Novella) - Elle Kennedy **4 "you had me at hello." Stars**

LOVED IT!!!
The chemistry between Gage and Skylar was HOT!! And the banter and sass between them had me laughing at so many different moments. A cute and enjoyable read, I can't wait to read Reed and AJ's stories!

An On Dublin Street Halloween

Dripping down his face, pooling across his broad shoulders and falling in icky glops down his tuxedo was green gunk. The look on his face was priceless.

"Stop laughing," he warned me.

Of course like always I did not heed the warning. I finally calmed enough to where out, "What happened?"

"My doormen let the Ghostbusters into the club. They brought ectoplasm."

I let out another cackle of laughter. "Oh man." I struggled to breathe, "I'm going to pee myself."

Oh how I love and miss Joss & Braden <3
