Radiance by Grace Draven

Radiance by Grace Draven

Today was Ildiko's wedding day, and if she managed not to retch on herself or a guest, she'd consider the entire event a resounding success.

Radiance reminded me to never judge a book only by its cover. I could have missed out on such an exceptional fantasy romance if I hadn't looked beyond the meh cover. This is my first read by the author Grace Drave, one that is continually recommended to me and I finally got the chance to discover her wonderful writing.

The Girl at Midnight by Melissa Grey

The Girl at Midnight by Melissa Grey

In Melissa Grey's The Girl at Midnight, readers are treated to lyrical writing, highly atmospheric settings and a heroine on the sassy side. 

Every since I laid eyes on The Girl at Midnight's cover, I've lusted for the book. The premise just called out to me with its fairy tale like story of a modern girl caught up in a war between two magical races. Echo, our feisty-pickpocket heroine, is adopted and raised by a race of mythic like creatures known as the Avicen who have feathers for hair and magic in their veins. An ancient war brews between the Avicen and their enemy the Drakharin, a fierce dragonlike race, and threatens to expose both. When Echo stumbles upon a clue about the legendary Firebird prophesied to end the war between the two races, she seizes the chance to prove her worth to the Avicen. A quest that is filled with danger, magic and romance.

The Deal by Elle Kennedy

The Deal by Elle Kennedy

 

The Deal by Elle Kennedy is the first in the Off Campus series which felt like a breath of fresh air. This book made me happy! It gave me smiles, giggles, and swoons.

The Deal has a wonderful balance of college and social life with two very strong, intelligent and lovable characters. It's rare for me to enjoy the heroine and hero equally in a New Adult read, yet the author Elle Kennedy manage to do just that with her characters Garrett Graham and Hannah Wells.

The Cemetery Boys by Heather Brewer

The Cemetery Boys by Heather Brewer

The air suddenly filled. My breath came out in quick, gray puffs. And then I heard it.
Vwumph-vwumph-vwumph.

When I first discovered The Cemetery Boys I knew right away that I wanted to read it.  I immediately thought of the 80's classic teen-horror movie The Lost Boys and hoped the author gave this story the same vibe of horror, teenage humor and adolescent hormones surrounded by the strange and supernatural. Overall, the story gave me mostly what I had hoped for and ended up being a fun and chilling read.
