Caged Fire (The Vigilant Book 1) by LM Preston – Review by Jade Thomson

Caged Fire (Vigilant, #1)Caged Fire by L.M. Preston
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

FIRST, the cover- I am absolutely obsessed. The color scheme is so pretty and the art is lovely. This was a great read that was hard to put down! EmVee was so interesting and multidimensional- she was a great character to watch grow throughout the novel. The story development was incredible- the magic was so wonderfully described and scenes were descriptive enough for me to imagine myself within the pages. I’m glad this was my final read for July because it ended with bang!

A Quirk of Destiny (Quirk of Destiny Book 1) by Catherine Greenall – Review by Jade Thomson

A Quirk of Destiny: Ignoramus et IgnorabimusA Quirk of Destiny: Ignoramus et Ignorabimus by Catherine Greenall
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I am a big fan of dystopian novels/stories and this was a pretty satisfying one! I enjoyed the events that led to the creation of this world-especially the fact about how it could potentially happen (one of the reasons I Am Legend FREAKS me out)! The character development was really great and flowed naturally-Calums character was fun to follow. I felt like it was really obvious the author was passionate about their work. This is my first from them and I am excited to read more!

Death & Mirrors (All Things Dark & Deadly Book 1) by SF Benson – Review by Jade Thomson

Death & Mirrors: All Things Dark & Deadly, Book OneDeath & Mirrors: All Things Dark & Deadly, Book One by S.F. Benson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was a beautiful blend of Alice in Wonderland with necromancy, magick, and darkness. The mystery that is being solved is so intriguing and really kept me on the edge of my seat- I could NOT put this book down. I LOVE Evalines character- she has so much strength and girl power. The idea of the mirror world isn’t new but the authors writing and the characters trials throughout give it a fresh take. Also- name a better villain name then Dr. Death. So many elements of this book were perfectly executed- the interactions of the characters with Evaline, her detective work, the magick, the artifact, the writing- it was all good to be honest! There were times I couldn’t figure out where the story was going to go- and that suspense is my favorite! Definitely give this one a read. 💖

Mermaid and the Water Magnifying Glass (Mermaid Science Series) by Lois Wickstrom – Review by Jade Thomson

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Ahhh! Another lovely addition to the Mermaid Science series. I’ve been really enjoying reading these to my daughter and it has been so much fun to watch her absorb and learn about the magic of science! This is another beautifully illustrated book in the series and might be my daughters favorite so far! She’s 4 and we have now read it together quite a few times. I adore Fig, Maia, and Trezzies adventures!

Blood & Vengeance (The Casket Girls Book 2) by A.D. Brazeau – Review by Jade Thomson

Blood & Vengeance (The Casket Girls #2)Blood & Vengeance by A.D. Brazeau
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Aghhhh! No one does dark paranormal romance like this author! I really enjoyed the first Casket Girl book and this one was written just as well- if not better. The characters storylines were so beautifully written and intertwined so well (not to mention that the characters themselves are written amazingly!).

There are so many paranormal elements like witches, demons, and sparks flying through the air. Blood & Vengeance was so incredibly hard to put down- i don’t think I did more than once (as it was the same Blood & Ravens.) I can’t wait for more from this author!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Another great read from this author! I love her work and this book was just amazing. The cover is gorgeous and eye catching- and was what inspired me to read it. (I do often pick books based on covers.) It was beautifully written and the world the author created was fascinating to dive into. I’m a big fan of star crossed lovers and when you throw in a mermaid? Obsessed. There was so much going on- not only with the main characters but the side characters as well. It really was a hard book to put down. I can’t wait to read the rest in this series! If you’ve read books from her before, you will not be disappointed! And if you haven’t- check this one out!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

It’s been awhile since i read a book by this author and I honestly can’t remember why it’s been so long? This was a great MC romance filled with fantastic characters, interesting plots, and did I mention swoon worthy bikers? I enjoyed learning about Dwarf- and seeing his relationship with Raven develop was *chefs kiss*. My favorite was the beginning though- i love being captivated in the first few pages and this. Did. That. The second i started it- i couldn’t put it down! I’m excited to read more!

As Close to Perfect by Maria Jane – Review by Jade Thomson

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I’m not sure if there’s anything more relatable than Brees initial thought of “never doing something again” because of previous results of said something. This type of romance novel isn’t what I normally read but I really liked this one. Not only was there depth to the MCs- Bree and Nate- but the secondary characters were wonderful as well! The MCs relationship developed so naturally- it was a joy to read and impossible to put down. This was my first book I have read from this author- and I am excited to expand my reading to more of their work! This was a very sweet romance that is sure to squeeze your heart. Glad I read it. (:

The Curse of a Faeblood by MK Lorber – Review by Jade Thomson

The Curse of a FaebloodThe Curse of a Faeblood by M.K. Lorber
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

OKAY. THIS COVER IS GORGEOUS. Now that we are past the cover- let’s dive into this book. I am no stranger to magic and this story was magic in itself. I LOVED learning about the “faeblood.” I enjoyed watching Ember grow into herself- enjoyed SWOONING after Gavyn- and enjoyed learning about the characters along the way! (Jade is my favorite- but I might be biased because we share the name. (; ) This was a beautiful fantasy and I am EAGER to read more in this series- this was so well written and intriguing! There was enough romance to fulfill the romantic in me and enough adventure to keep me on the EDGE of my seat. Read. This. Book. Y’all. You won’t regret it!

Ancient Reflections: A Mythic Trilogy by Tamara Agha-Jaffar – Review by Jade Thomson

Ancient Reflections: A Mythic TrilogyAncient Reflections: A Mythic Trilogy by Tamara Agha-Jaffar
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The author really captured me in her introduction and I couldn’t stop from devouring the book. The way these women, and their stories, were written was eloquent and fantastic. I loved the different strengths each woman had- it was really cool learning about them when the original tales made them secondary characters. Growing up I enjoyed learning mythology- especially Greek- and reading these classics from a woman’s point of view was invigorating! Now I want ALL my favorites written from that same point of view- and by this author!
