Quote of the Day

“Because I love you. Because love, to some, is a weakness. A pressure point. Because I would give up anything for you, including the GP. And because I don’t mean to give up either.” 

Blood Games by Chloe Neill.

Quote of the Day

"She pulled my hair," he said reflectively.  "Took a clump of it out by the roots.  I'll tell ye, Sassenach; if ever I feel the need to change my manner of employment,  I dinna think I'll take up attacking women--it's a bloody hard way to make a living."

Dragonfly In Amber by Diana Gabaldon

Quote of the Day

“I have had it up to here with my wedding," I said. "The other day Andrea tried to explain to me that apparently I am supposed to have a new thing, an old thing, a blue thing, and something stolen."
"Borrowed, Kate," Barabas murmured.
"Who the hell even makes up those rules?”

Blood Games, the tenth installment in the Wench favorite Chicagoland Vampires series, released two weeks ago, and while Barb told you that it was fantastic in her review, she kept the details to a minimum. Well, we've been dying to discuss those details ever since, and we can't hold back any longer.

So come with us through the jump, and we're going to dish on all of the glorious details.

Quote of the Day

"He didn't make it in spite of you, Merit. He passed because of you. Because that's who you are to him. You may not feel it--not right now--but he's changed. He is happy because of you.
Ethan is a man of a type: strong, powerful, honorable. But he has always held himself back from the rest of his vampires. Partly because he's a Master, sure, but partly because he didn't quite fit. With you, he fits. He's no longer alone. He's part of a pair, and that's a really good thing."

Book Series Review - The Disillusionists by Carolyn Crane.

The Disillusionists by Carolyn Crane is my latest, great reading find in urban fantasy. It's only three books in series. I know, it's so novel to read an urban fantasy series that is a trilogy and the bonus is all the books are already published. The series was recommended as our Goodreads three month, book series read and for me, it's been a delightful discovery.  The heroine, Justine Jones, was so likable to me and she wasn't super badass, but she fights for what she believes is right.  Add convincing side characters and it makes a series this reader thoroughly enjoyed. Plus throw in a couple of sexy guys and I'm intrigued to find out what happens next.

So join me after the jump and learn why you should be reading this series. Mildly spoilery for the series.
