Trailer: A Monster Calls

Trailer: A Monster Calls

Happy Monday, guys. I just spent the weekend in San Diego for Comic-Con. So many books, movies and shows to talk about soon but, in the meantime, I am posting this trailer for A Monster Calls that I meant to post last week. I haven’t read the book yet but I know I have a copy in my library somewhere. I really like the look of the trailer though and who doesn’t love Liam Neeson? I have a feeling there might be some tears when in the audience when I go see this. What do you guys think? Does this… Read more »

Review: Duke of Sin by Elizabeth Hoyt

Review: Duke of Sin by Elizabeth Hoyt

I will admit that I was a bit skeptical when I heard that the Duke of Montgomery was getting his own book. Not that I didn’t enjoy the devious and devilishly handsome troublemaker, but Val there are bad boys and then there’s Val. He has caused quite a lot of mischief in the Maiden Lane series and I wasn’t sure how Hoyt was going to turn him into the hero of this story. Changing too much of Val’s character would seem disingenuous but could I root for someone who might be more villain… Read more »

ONCE UPON A MOONLIT NIGHT Launch Day Blitz + Giveaway

ONCE UPON A MOONLIT NIGHT Launch Day Blitz + Giveaway

Happy release day to Once Upon a Moonlit Night by Elizabeth Hoyt, a novella in the Maiden Lane series of historical romance. I am a big fan of this series and eagerly read each installment when they are released. This is a short novella that will hopefully tide us over until the next book in the series is released. This story focuses on Hippolyta Royle, a character who has shown up in the series before and was recently the victim of a failed kidnapping in Duke of Sin. If you were wondering what happened to Hippolyta after she escaped her… Read more »

Uncovered (153): The Graces

Uncovered (153): The Graces

Who says you can’t judge a book by its cover? While it’s not the only factor in picking up a book, a pretty cover doesn’t hurt. Uncovered is a (semi) weekly post where I show some cover love. I came across the cover to The Graces by Laure Eve just a few days ago and immediately knew that it would be making an appearance here on Uncovered. I love graphic style covers and this one is extremely eye catching. I love all of the fine line work in it. The colors remind me of a Japanese print with the gold and red…. Read more »

FOREVERMORE Release Day Blitz + Giveaway

FOREVERMORE Release Day Blitz + Giveaway

Happy book birthday to Kristen Callihan and Forevermore, the most recent and final novel in her Darkest London series. This is a bittersweet one for me. I’ve been a fan of Darkest London since my very first blogging days. I think Firelight may have been one of the first digital ARCs I ever requested. I was hooked immediately and have happily followed these characters over the years. I love the world that Callihan has created with this series and I am sad to see it end. It’s going out on a high note though with Forevermore. I’ve already read it… Read more »

Manicure Monday (103): Big Magic

Manicure Monday (103): Big Magic

Hi and welcome to Manicure Monday, a feature that combines my love of reading and nail polish. Each week I’ll showcase one of my current reads along with a matching book manicure. It’s been quite a while since my last Manicure Monday post. No real excuse for it except to say that I really haven’t had much time lately to paint my nails one colors, much less do any nail art. I’ve been meaning to get back into it though and, at the urging of a friend, made the effort this week to play with some polish. Funny that the book… Read more »

Who says you can’t judge a book by its cover? While it’s not the only factor in picking up a book, a pretty cover doesn’t hurt. Uncovered is a (semi) weekly post where I show some cover love. Enjoy! Happy Friday, everyone! I am really excited about this week’s Uncovered feature. Emma Mills seems to be blessed with great book covers. Her last novel, First & Then, also appeared in an Uncovered post last year. Her upcoming novel, This Adventure Ends, is just as eye catching and I can’t wait to add it to my bookshelves. I love that this looks like an actual painted canvas…. Read more »
