Book Reviewers that I Absolutely Love and Completely Recommend

meltotheany

I just wanted to write up a quick post about some people in the book community that mean an immense amount to me and deserve all the recognition in the world! These people are amazing reviewers, who are always honest and critical, and probably the reason my TBR shelf looks the way it does.

Khanh from The Alliterates
I can count on one hand how many books me and Khanh disagree on. I trust her reviews more than I trust anyone’s in the book community, and I honestly live for her one star reviews. Not only is she the best reviewer I know, she is also a geeky, Harry Potter lovin’, bunny mom, too!

Mogsy from Biblio Sanctum
Honestly, Mogsy is the SFF Queen! She is constantly reviewing the newest Sci-Fi and Fantasy and is probably the biggest reason my TBR shelf looks like it is about to break…

Here are some of my favorite quotes *squeals*

“Oh, Marilla,” she exclaimed one Saturday morning, coming dancing in with her arms full of gorgeous boughs, “I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.”

“I still love her with an inextinguishable love. It makes me very sad at times to think about her. But really, Marilla, one can’t stay sad very long in such an interesting world, can one?”

“ALL things great are wound up with all things little.”

“She was all “spirit and fire and dew,”

“a glorious October, all red and gold, with mellow mornings when the valleys were filled with delicate mists as if the spirit of autumn had poured them in for the sun to drain—amethyst, pearl, silver, rose, and smoke-blue. The dews were so heavy that the fields glistened like cloth of silver and there were such heaps of rustling leaves in the hollows of many-stemmed woods to run crisply through.”

My rating: 1 of 5 stars

(-) 5 stars
I dont really want to be honest about how I feel about this…’thing’ because I don’t want people to get angry but to me
-> this isn’t a book, its a novella…albeit a very badly done novella
-> this didn’t advance either of the series its a part of..at all
-> there was literally no…NO plot
-> I hate Mirceo
-> I don’t think you need to suffer through this in order to read the next in the series
-> This wasn’t sexy
-> I’m so incredibly disappointed in this..its obvious that KC didn’t care about this thing or want to write it and it so shows this isn’t what she writes and just the fact that we have to wait a year for more of her paranormal books..and get this steaming pile of shit is inexcusable to me

I’ve alwasy been such a fan of this author her book was one of the very first romances I’ve EVER read and I couldn’t stomach the last book in her Professionals series..didn’t even finish it…and now this….makes me thing that Wicked Abyss is going to be horrible

fuck this

One For the Money (Stephanie Plum #1) by Janet Evonavich

One for the Money (Stephanie Plum, #1)One for the Money by Janet Evanovich
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

For some reason I’m thinking about this series today…I read these so long ago and I remember loving them so much! this series was like a TV show full of action, crazy characters, sexual tension and plenty of laughs I totally shipped her and Morelli with everything in me.
I also adored Grandma Mazur …this series is so freaking long ! I stopped at book 13 because OMG I was tired of Stephanie indecision and bullshit but I think I’m gunna revisted these soon..its time for me to finish them.

 *****Reread April 2017 *****
4.25 funny,sassy bounty hunter stars

audiobook for this is narrated by Lolly From Orange is the New Black BTW!
Yea…don’t ask me why I went from being firmly against rereading to literally rereading two series at once….its like I’m not even me but I dont regret it! Oh I almost forgot about the magic that is the Stephanie Plum series

ok so Stephanie looses her job the only logical next step is to become a bounty hunter right?
throw in an ex who is also your mark, a cast of funny ass like serious funny as family members. Colorful hookers, psychopathic boxers, best friend cops a hamster and a ton of pot roast and cabbage rolls and you have the stephanie plum series.

This is just a great start to an amazing and unique series and its a total page turner to boot
There is something for everyone in this series! it was so cozy to go back to the “Burg” with its big hair, close knit Italian family and just amazing characters!. I remember the first time I read this and I wished so bad that I was italian lol

and I just have to talk about Morelli…wow Morelli my beautiful Joe Morelli…my yummy bossy italian cop Morelli..my yummy chef Morelli. My smooth talking Morelli as you can see..I love Morelli *dreamy sigh* seriously I also have a very obvious weakness for nicknames so when Morelli would call Stephanie cupcake, sweetcheaks anything omg anything I would melted. Theres just something about him that gets to you and omg I just can’t ship her with Ranger never have never will.

The mystery in this book keeps you turning pages..thats the magic of this series..they are such incredibly good page turners
so if you haven’t already tried this series out give it a go..you’re gunna have a blast.

Lover Avenged (Black Dagger Brotherhood, #7) by J.R. Ward

Lover Avenged (Black Dagger Brotherhood, #7)Lover Avenged by J.R. Ward
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

orgininal rating 3 stars

*****ReRead April 2017*****
2.25 stars………………………

ugh oh my lord….I really didn’t like this book….was it me? I wonder. I kept trying to rationalize my feelings : ‘Maybe its because I’ve reread 6 of these in a row’ ‘Maybe its because I just read Phury’s book and I loved that one.’ ….yea that was denial Im () this close to hating this book..and here are my thoughts

what I liked
* I loved Ehlena! she was so strong and hardworking, relatable even she was just a blue collar vampire and its important that we got to see that side of vampire canon in the BDB series.
-> her first scene with Rehv I loved! and every scene in the beginning at least…with them I was all about.
* LOVED the Wrath POV ..like 100X percent. And I loved the problems he was having with Beth in this one. Their marital problems are so human and realistic, they added another dimension to their character their relationship and the story as a whole. Relationships are the same no matter your species.
* loved how Rehv yearned for Ehlena..he was such a torturned character so loyal and long suffering it broke my heart.
*Every single time. Saxton was in the picture..which was I think twice.
saxton photo 7b2e63883fad434c60881e9ae6b68517_zpszsh3w6fz.jpg

What I didn’t like
* sympaths…just the whole idea of them I didn’t understand why JR created them..we dont even hear about them again later in the series..they’re fucking disgusting I hate them so much
*the fucking princess…I hated her with everything in me
*the long extensive scenes of Rehv fucking the princess..who also is his fucking half sister! I know they’re sympaths but what the fuck that was NOT OK and super even more not ok when you count the fact they they had more sex scenes together than Rehv and Ehlena..and why did you include the scenes anyway! fucking incest is disgusting
*Xhex I skipped almost all of her POV scenes I can safely say I hate her now I dont even care that she got kidnapped by Lash she sucks shes a bad character. the way she treated JM is inexcusable to me… I dare someone try and defend her.

I’m sure theres more that I detested but I just want to wipe this book off of my memory…maybe take a break from my reread because honestly I’m not that jazzed about reading lover mine…I now remember the first time I read these books and I skimmed alot …which I did again now totally skimmed the ending totally skimmed the the incest scenes after the first one skipped Lash And now I’m in a book funk and nothing pleases me so thanks fucking Rehvenge and Ehlena you fucking suck

Lover Eternal (Black Dagger Brotherhood, #2) by J.R. Ward

Lover Eternal (Black Dagger Brotherhood, #2)Lover Eternal by J.R. Ward
My rating: 5 of 5 stars


ALL OF THE STARS FOR THE BEAST AND HIS TAMER, TRUE?

****Mild spoilers for the book and sorta spoilers for the rest of the books****
************REREAD 2017************

Oh this book, you dont just read this book…you feel this book in your whole body.

while the first book was great this book was so much fucking better! so much depth, so many more emotions, so many LOL’s ugh. If you started this series and weren’t convinced by Dark Lover I URGE you to read Lover Eternal because you will most certainly change your mind.

Rhage Rhage RHAGE my beautiful snuggly, vampire puppy man I love you so much you’re my favorite fucking brother.

 photo tumblr_mgej22M6bB1rj97amo1_500_zpsuq0dlszh.png

Its honestly so lovely how Rhage first meets Mary! he’s just came down from the beast and when he does he can’t see…and Mary just happens to be at the mansion with John Matthew and he hears her voice and it soothes him.

“Her throat undulated under his hand as if she were swollowing. “My name…my name is Mary I’m here with a friend.” Rhage stopped breathing. His heart skipped a beat and then slowed. “Say that again” he whispered. “Ah m name is Mary Luce. I’m a friend of Bella’s..we came here with a boy, with John Matthew. We were invited.” Rhage shivered, a balmy rush bloomed out all over his skin. The musical lint of her voice, the rhythm of her speech, the sound of her words, it all spread through him, calming him, comforting him. Chaining him sweetly. He closed his eyes. “say something else.” “What?” she asked, baffled. “Talk. Talk to me. I want to hear your voice again.”

After having to erase her memories of him he tricks Bella into setting him up on a date with her because he can’t stop thinking about her voice. That whole scene was hilarious I laughed so many times. “You will call Mary and tell her to meet me tonight for dinner.”

and they actually go on dates which didn’t really happen in the first book lol and Rhage wants to be with her so bad he keeps coming back like a puppy but Mary isn’t just a normal gal..shes really sick and has never been noticed by anyone before least of all a sexy beast like Rhage! so she keeps pushing him away.

Also it doesn’t help that theres a beast inside of him that wants to come out and play whenever it smells her arousal.
 photo tumblr_omz69nqDrb1tezjkso2_400_zpscghuhovo.gif

This book was so tender the way Rhage is with Mary will melt your heart and make you swoon! the first time he sees her naked will always stay with me because it filled me tears and made my heart soar. He’s so special.

But oh when they’re together its something special. Their bond is so fucking special, considering how the beast that lives inside him loves Mary too! I will always ship these too! The Beast made me love them more they’re honestly my favorite besides Xcor and Layla

for the rest of the story lines
(SPOILERS)
-> I loved Wellsie omg she is such an amazing female! sucks even more whats gunna happen 😦
-> John Matthew omg..my precious baby..I’m so attached to him! way more now than when I first read these! I’m so attached to him and protective of him he’s been through so much and that scene he had with Wellsie when she let him cry..I cried too it just shows what an amazing person wellsie is and how lost JM was. It was the moment when he realized he’s finally understand and he’s where he belongs and it broke me. im kinda upset that his mate is who she is. I feel like he deserves someone better I feel like he shoulda been with a nice chosen..but alas when I re read his book maybe I’ll change my mind
-> tots forgot Layla was introduced here! I feel so bad for her she was so ready to be just an inanimate sex doll for Rhage. She reminded me of Marissa in that shes perpetually unwanted and undesired thats why I loved her and Xcor so much omg reading that and knowing she has Xcor was great!
-> I absolutely LOVE Bella and much to my surprise…I kinda ship her with Phury just a bit..just a little bitty bit..sigh I just love Phury so much
-> I love Phury he’s like the Ringo Star of the Brotherhood …my beautiful loyal vampire I adore you you’re a true gentleman
->that fucking scene where Rhage gets tied down with chains so that beast can come out a bit when hes making love to Mary fuck me that was sinfully hot shit shit shit
-> Mary’s DR appoints. hurt me in such a personal level because I’ve had to go through blood transfusion too and her pain was my pain. I feel like if I was a shellan I would be Mary I adore her.

I really enjoyed this book I love all of the brotherhod books
I can’t wait untill the next one
