Shattered Promises (Shattered Promises, #1)Shattered Promises by Jessica Sorensen

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Interesting, original novel with enough mystery and tension to keep you flipping the pages well into the night. The characters were compelling and I’m very curious to see where the cards fall in the second book. Thumbs up!

A Lost Witch (A Modern Witch, #7)A Lost Witch by Debora Geary

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I’m so sad to see this series end, but what a way to take it out with a bang!

I really feel as if my favorite Witch Central people are out there somewhere, still fetching new witches to help, still consuming copious amounts of cookies and using their powers to help us mortals out. One can hope :-)

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I adore all the Modern Witch books, but I particularly loved this book, with it’s musical bent. I’ve longed believed music is magic, with it’s particular way of transporting us to a different mood, a singular moment, to ease the melancholy of our spirits and heal old wounds. So goes this book… a magic all it’s own.

Quickie Book Review – A Different Witch by Debora Geary

A Different Witch (A Modern Witch, #5)A Different Witch by Debora Geary

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

One of the things I love the most about this series is the author’s uncanny ability to allow her characters to make mistakes and grow from them, and Witch Centrals resident Mama Bear is no exception to this. In this book, Nell finally finds herself in a situation she can’t control, with a person she fails to understand. What has worked for her in the past doesn’t, and Nell has to adapt– to grow.

It’s what we all do over time, grow, adapt and (hopefully) learn from our experiences. Watching the witch central characters expand and bloom has been such a gift!

A Modern Witch (A Modern Witch, #1)A Modern Witch by Debora Geary

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I read this novel a while ago, but recently came back to the series and read the whole lot of them in just a handful of days. Aside from this series being one of the most innovative (combining tech-now with the older witchy traditions) it is also one of the most life-affirming, uplifting series that I’ve ever had the pleasure to read.

The author’s love for her characters comes through loud and clear, as evidenced by the amount of thought and care she put into breathing life into them, holding their hands through tough times, and laughing with them over nutella cookies and ice cream. Start here, then read all 7 books in the main series, but don’t forget the spin-off series as well!

Trust me, you’ll feel like a better person after living among the people of Witch Central for over a dozen book’s worth!

Great YA/ NA paranormal novel. It threw me into the action fairly quickly and didn’t let up until the end. I adored the premise and can’t wait to see where the characters end up in book two!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What a great, emotional read! I found myself pulled into the narrative quickly and couldn’t wait to flip each page. Tragic, haunting and redemptive– this novel is the complete package.

And those twisty, turny moments, oy!

Fashionably Dead (Hot Damned, #1)Fashionably Dead (The Hot Damned Series #1 ) by Robyn Peterman

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Loved this book so much!

Aside from it’s fabulously inventive plot, it has the most creative, quirkified cast of characters that practically leap off the page (er, screen) in technicolor.

I found myself giggling late into the night and text more than one “gem” to a friend as I read. And then I made her read the book (she loved it too.) Then we read the next one and had an hour-long conversation about how we’d love to have our own little Beyonce & friends.

If you love your UF/ paranormal with a heaping-helping of snark, outlandish characters and humor that bites instead of tickles, definitely check out this series!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This story grabbed me by the short-hairs and took me for a crazy ride. I love the sense of humor, the outlandish circumstances, and the three’s-company ending :-) I hadn’t read anything by Kent before picking up this book, but I’ll certainly read more novels by her in the future!

(Spicy. Daring. So out-of-the-box you can’t even see the darn box anymore!)

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Wildly original, fast-paced and smexy. This novel was quite a ride and I can’t wait to read the next book in the series. If you like your heroine sassy, smart and fighting her own personal demons, then you’ll love Pandora!
