The Wicked Wolves of Windsor: and other fairytales by Byrd Nash – Review by Mary Katherine Alexander

The Wicked Wolves of Windsor: and other fairytalesThe Wicked Wolves of Windsor: and other fairytales by Byrd Nash
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

When it comes to the Wicked Wolves of Windsor by Byrd Nash. I am a huge fan, every story was better than the last. They weren’t sweet and innocent like a certain mouse controlled company tried to turn fairy tales into. They’re reminiscent of the original Grimm’s Fairy Tales which brought a huge smile on my face. It was hard to pick a favorite of the stories, and some of the twists at the end had me grinning on a few of them. Byrd has a way of taking fantasy and making it her own and still being incredibly empowering, especially for the females. I will say in the last story it was nice to see a flash back to Logan (from Byrd’s other book, ‘Never Date a Siren’) and some aspects of his family life. I look forward to many more stories from Byrd and Recommend this, and her other books to everyone I know!!
5 out of 5 Stars!

Never Date a Siren (College Fae Book 1) by Byrd Nash – Review by Mary Katherine Alexander

Never Date a SirenNever Date a Siren by Byrd Nash
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I have always had a niche for books about the Fae and especially when it has them mixing in with our modern reality, and ‘Never Date A Siren’ Was no exception. I absolutely adored this, and especially the twist when it came to Logan, I about died of excitement. I love Brigit and all the detail that Byrd Nash puts in of all the different septs of the Fae. I look forward to seeing so much more from Byrd and this series. I recommend it to anyone who loves fantasy, humor, college life, a little bit of drama, and some amazing twists.

Scoring Chance: A Mile High Miners Novella by Lane Martin – Review by Mary Katherine Alexander

Scoring Chance : A Mile High Miners NovellaScoring Chance : A Mile High Miners Novella by Lane Martin
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I started this lovely little novella earlier this evening, and once I started it, I shut everything else out to keep reading. I couldn’t stop. I adored Eden, and I adored Rhett too, he was so sweet and charming and even endearing at times. I could feel for Eden and some of the things she had gone through. There were definite moments I felt I would need a cold shower as the level of steam in this book could melt a whole ice rink (pun intended). I loved all the small little Harry Potter references, though I would disagree on Gryffindor being the best house (Proud Slytherin Here) other than that It was brilliant and I look foward to reading more about the Miners Hockey Team and their women.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was the first book I read from this Author and it actually surprised me. I was skeptical at first but intrigued by the synopsis so I figured I would give it a shot and I’m so glad I did. This book kept me on my toes but I thoroughly enjoyed it. I would recommend this to anyone who likes a bit of adventure mixed up in their books of choice.

Lillie (Maggie Trilogy Series Book 3) by Mya O’Malley – Review by Mary Katherine Alexander

Lillie (Maggie Trilogy Series Book 3)Lillie by Mya O’Malley
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

So, I Just Finished Naomi, and was very quick to get started on Lillie, as a matter of fact, when I finished my review for the second book, I started Lillie, and didn’t put it down till I finished it. Which was probably not the best idea while on vacation, but was worth the tiredness I went through most of the day. Once again May O’Malley does a brilliant job writing as Naomi and telling such a beautiful story in her books, I adore Bryce and his little girl and It makes me happy to see Naomi and Bryce with each other. It’s such an amazing trilogy and I’m sad to see it end but I loved reading about it so much. I look forward to future books from Mya!

Kermode (Legends Series Book 2) by Maggie Adams – Review by Mary Katherine Alexander

Kermode: Legends Series Book 2Kermode: Legends Series Book 2 by Maggie Adams
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

To Say I loved this book would be a complete and total understatement, There are so many words that haven’t even been invented yet to explain how much I adored this. I adored Piper and I’ve always had a niche for reality type stories with a slight supernatural spin and Kermode Was No Exception. Maggie Adams did a brilliant job building this world and creating Piper and helping make her someone who seemed like someone you could know and who you could see yourself in, even if we don’t all have mysterious powers like hers.

Naomi (Maggie Trilogy Book 2) by Mya O’Malley – Review by Mary Katherine Alexander

NaomiNaomi by Mya O’Malley
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

After Reading Maggie, I couldn’t wait to hear more of Naomi’s story and tore through the ‘Naomi’ much as I did ‘Maggie’. It was just amazing as the first, and lovely to see more of Bryce and Naomi. It brought both happy and sad tears to my eyes at many parts, and Naomi is the type of person i just want as a friend too, with her devotion to those around her and helping as people as she can. I can’t wait to tear through the third book in the series. Mya O’Malley really knows how to tell a brilliant story.

Journeys Through SpaceTime (Journeys Through Book 1) by James Talisman – Review by Mary Katherine Alexander

Journeys Through SpaceTimeJourneys Through SpaceTime by James Talisman
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

From the First page of this, I was hooked. I’ve always loved time travel stories, and this one was no exception, if anything it set the bar higher for any other time travel books I’ll read after this one. I loved the amount of detail and attention that was put into this book. From all the different characters and the different worlds and how it built up and all intertwined. Often times with books with several characters it’s hard to keep up, but this one I didn’t struggle hardly at all, and the handy guide in the beginning was also very helpful. I recommend this 100% to anyone who loves a detailed story, time travel, and sci fi/fantasy. I am anxiously anticipating the next book!

The Fat Girl’s Guide to Loving Your Body by K.L. Montgomery – Review by Mary Katherine Alexander

The Fat Girl's Guide to Loving Your BodyThe Fat Girl’s Guide to Loving Your Body by K.L. Montgomery
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I’ll be honest, at first I was like, ‘Is this book really going to help me?’ For Nearly 20 years, I’ve struggled with my fat and hating my own body, but, I figured I would give this an opportunity, the worst that could happen I spent some time reading a book and nothing changed. BUT, I was wrong, This was helpful, It did open my eyes, a few moments were like a good slap in your face (Think Cher and her “Schnap Out of It”) I loved the journaling assignments, and even the pain and the tears some of them brought with them, but It has helped me learn to love myself, which is something I’ve struggled with since i was ten. I just turned 30 back in April, and I hated and loathed myself so much, missed out on so much, but this book, honestly, and K.L.’s way she writes, (and curses) spoke to me so much, to me it felt as if an older version of myself was telling me to fix things and to fix them now before I did miss out on life. I recommend this to every girl who has every struggled with loving herself and her own self image. You will not be disappointed!
5 out of 5 Stars! (I’d give it 10 if i could)
