My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was my first book of poetry from this author and it was AMAZING. I haven’t read any poetry since my freshman year of college and it’s obvious I have been missing out! The author has a very lyrical quality in several pieces of work and her use of language was mesmerizing. I happily consider myself a fan and I’m excited to read more of their work. This collection invoked a multitude of feelings and experienced emotions vividly. This really was a beautiful piece of work- check it out my friends. You’ll feel all the feelings- and it’s worth it.

A Christmas to Remember by 5 Prince Publishing – Review by Jade Thomson

A Christmas to Remember: An Anthology from 5 Prince PublishingA Christmas to Remember: An Anthology from 5 Prince Publishing by Bernadette Marie
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was the cutest collection of Christmas stories I’ve read! I’ve never been a huge fan of Christmas stories but I really enjoy them in this medium. I enjoyed reading different tales by multiple authors- none which I have read before. The best part of this collection was discovering all their talent! I’ll happily read more works by them- especially if it’s like this one! I’ve worked at several jobs that have tarnished the holiday spirit but this really brought it back for me. I might even put my tree up early this year. Check this deliciously sweet collection out friends!

The Final Bite by Naomi Valkyrie – Review by Jade Thomson

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Happy Halloween my spooky friends and what a wonderful time to read this book! I’m pretty sure this is my first read by this author and I really felt captivated from beginning to end. I’m so excited to delve into other stories from this talented creator! This book really pulled me in and kept me interested until the end- the premise of only having 3 days to find your mate (plus all the other rules) in order to avoid purgatory is a really fun idea. I’m excited to read other works by this author to see what other twists and turns they could put me through because this book really was such fun. I loved the MCs. The cover was drool worthy on it’s own and is most of the reason I picked up this book! Loved it and I’m about to go read some more! Check it out y’all.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Happy Halloween my friends and what a good read this was for it! I’m always a little bummed when I start a new series because I usually wait for multiple books to be out but boy- this was a good one! I LOVED Jaspers character (also cute as hell name!) and She usually kept me laughing too. There were so many cool ideas used in this book that I don’t want to spoil for yall- you’re gonna have to read it for yourself friends! Just know there are some really good twists and turns that makes this book even more worth reading! The only reason I knocked a star off is because it doesn’t let you do half stare and this would have been a 4.5. There were a few places at the beginning that were confusing and seemed that wrong characters were being referenced. Other than that- what an excellent read! I definitely recommend my friends!

Elemental Fire (The Hidden Realms #1)Elemental Fire by E.G. Manetti
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

LOVED this book! This is my first read by this author and it was ADDICTING. As soon as I started I refused to put it down! I loved how commonplace magical folk are- and the idea of glamor to disguise their true appearance. The mcs, Sin (what a great name) and Rad (adorable with his contractions), were so much fun to read- their chemistry was off the charts and I loved their adventures. I’m a big fan of reading books with the MCs point of view and even more so when it switched between the two of them. I’m so excited I found a new author to read in a genre I love! I’m ready to start the next in the series- check this one out friends! You won’t be disappointed!

Grave Digger Academy II (Grave Digger Academy Book 2) by C.A. King – Review by Jade Thomson

Grave Digger Academy IIGrave Digger Academy II by C.A. King
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Ahhh! We are BACK for the sequel. I really enjoyed this one! I love Makayla- and seeing how she was ostracized from her family was interesting. I was wondering how they would react to her being in the Grave Digger Academy. The inter-academy face off was a fun addition to the series. I enjoyed seeing how much Makayla has grown between the first book to now. I’m also kind of glad no one was transferred out of the school to another one- just because I really love the secondary characters in this series. Makayla is GREAT but they are all so funny! There was so much development in this book that really made me excited for the next in the series. Also how did I just realize this author also wrote Evil Sushi? <- one of the best reads I’ve read in awhile!!!

  1. Grave Digger AcademyGrave Digger Academy by C.A. King
    My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I haven’t read a good YA book in quite some time and this was a good start! To start: The only reason for 3 stars is because I feel like there was a LOT going on and it was a little clunky trying to connect everything.

Now what i liked: I liked the premise of kids attending magical academies- and the way they discover which academy they have been accepted too was super neat. The staff were interesting with varying personality, and the familiars were super cute. Makayla is your typical teen- mischievous, curious, and loves to break the rules! Thomas might be my favorites of the side characters- he had some of the funniest lines (and who doesn’t love squirrels?) There’s a little bit of drama but nothing too earth shattering. If you like magical academies and a quick read- give this one a read friends!

I will be reading the next for sure!

Hungry Business: A Gothic Story about the Horrors of Dating by Maria DeBlassie – Review by Jade Thomson

Hungry BusinessHungry Business by Maria DeBlassie
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Did anyone ever read “fanfiction” on quizilla? Exclusively the y/n (your name) stories? This reminded me of those- in kind of a vague way- but it was still entirely nostalgic. I really loved this bite sized read. I finished it entirely too quickly and wish I could read more! I adored the ending- and I hope one day we get another one- or something similar in style! I’m not going to spoil this quick read by giving anything away- it’s so short that even if you don’t have an appreciation for this type of genre- you should read it anyway! Give this memorable story a chance- you won’t regret it!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Okay. This was really cute! I loved getting introduced to the handsome bachelors and seeing a tidbit of all their personality’s. I really loved getting to know Jake though- he had such a sweet side and there were so many highlight-able moments! (I’m one of those weirdos that highlights and leaves comments when I read.) Lauren was pretty fabulous to read too- it’s just that Jake stole my heart! I love how committed he was to finding true romance- not just something easy. Also- the place where they first meet? Such a cool concept. I would love to do something like that! This was such a refreshing book. I can’t wait to read the rest!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Okay- LOVED this one. I haven’t read the other books in this series but I REALLY liked this one. There is something yummy about the main characters- and the way they met! I’m a sucker for mafia romance and man was this one a treat! The chemistry between Dom and Leah was off the charts and I’m pretty sure I could physically feel the flames from the sizzle in this book! The secondary characters were nearly as interesting as the mains, probably because some of them have their own books and now I NEED to read those. This is definitely my favorite mafia read of the month and I am so excited to have more to read by this author.
