Horde - Ann Aguirre

While reading Outpost I was contemplating not continuing this series. Horde was a gripping end to the Razorland Trilogy. It had nonstop action, anguish, and anticipation that carried throughout the book. Also the progression of the characters had you feeling passionately connected to their journey. So glad I decided to stick with this trilogy – Horde was a great read.

Outpost - Ann Aguirre

3.5 stars
This is a good book ~ just not as good as Enclave (Razorland #1).
The action did not start till awhile into the book, from then on I would have rated it higher.

Shanna - Kathleen E. Woodiwiss

3.5 Stars
This was a good story, even though the heroine drove me crazy. And for a book of 672 pages, that's a lot of crazy.

Sea Fire - Karen Robards

Another true Bodice Ripper. Did not enjoy this one as much as the first in the series. I liked the plot, but the verbal sparring that I enjoyed in Island Flame was a little excessive in this book.All the misunderstandings came to quickly - one right after another with no breathing room. Still a fun and easy read that takes you everywhere, with no holding back (as you would expect in a Bodice Ripper).

Island Flame - Karen Robards

Definitely a true Pirate Bodice Ripper. Starts off a little cheesy, but then turns into a great emotional read (for a B-Ripper). Fun read.

Angels of Darkness - Ilona Andrews, Sharon Shinn, Nalini Singh,  Meljean Brook Nalini Singh - Angel's Wolf
Stolen - Kelley Armstrong

When I read Bitten (Women of the Otherworld, #1) I thought the intro into the book was odd. It started out confusing and somewhat disjointed. It almost felt as if I was thrown into the story. But don’t worry – it didn’t take long before I could not put it down.
Now after reading Stolen, it appears that is how this author writes (I guess?). But just like the first book, you jump in and don’t look back.
This book is fun, sometimes snarky, and at times intense - making you wish you can read faster.

The Blue Falcon - Robyn Carr 3.5 Stars
On the Island - Tracey Garvis-Graves What a treasure! I could not put this book down.
Such a beautifully written book that has and equally beautiful story.
The Kitchen House - Kathleen Grissom The plot has elements of slavery we have seen before, so I understand how some think this book is somewhat stereotypical. But the characters and their complex interactions on the plantation is what pulled me in. I did not want to put the book down, I had to find out what would happen next. It has tragedy, constant overwhelming moments, heartache and betrayal. It was an emotion roller-coaster – one I did not want to put down.
Night Shift - Lilith Saintcrow

Night Shift (Jill Kismet, #1) took me awhile to get into and to find my solidity into its dark world. After reading this I check the review to see what was up with me not loving this? It seems it is helpful to understand it better by reading her previous series. I may try her other series to see if I enjoy it a little better. Because after finish this book I’m not too excited to continue the Jill Kismet series at this time, but I do see the potential in her very interesting dark urban fantasy’s.

World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War - Max Brooks Going into this I knew what to expect ... I had read part of World War Z a few years before. Maybe because there were not a lot of zombie apocalyptic stories at the time, I found it enjoyable.
But let’s face it – with the walking dead and all the others of its kind – this story with its journalistic view does not hold the heart-thumping, adrenaline-pumping feeling as some do now.
However, this story is well written and it’s style unique.
A Walk Across the Sun - Corban Addison A truly engaging and wonderful read.
Addicted - Charlotte Featherstone

Addicted was an excitingly passionate Erotic Historical Romance - quite an emotional roller-coaster (one which I truly enjoyed the ride).

In the Master's Bed (Harlequin Historical) - Blythe Gifford Jane got a little annoying at times(it's all about me - spoiled attitude), but besides that I enjoyed the book.
