Review: Fangirl

This is a book with a lot of hype. I’ve heard so many great things about it that I was expecting to love it. Unfortunately, while I found it an okay read, I was pretty bored throughout the story. In a twist for me, I found that I liked it much better once the romance started up. This book is about Cath and her adjustment to college. She’s very introverted and her whole world revolves around her twin sister Wren, and writing fan fiction for her favourite books series, which is a complete play on Harry Potter. As they start […]

Review: To Die Fur

This is such a fun series. I was laughing out loud in multiple spots, and giggling like crazy in others. What else can you expect from a series that includes floating turtle ghosts, a talking reincarnated and very sassy cat, a ghost dog able to take the form of any breed, and a whole menagerie of other animals? Foxtrot is a great main character. She’s just the right amount of sanity, and controlled behaviour needed to offset all the paranormal craziness. Her practical and logical manner comes in very handy, and her quick wit and sharp thinking results in plenty […]

Review: Third Grave Dead Ahead

I love this series. Seriously love this series. Since I’ve been reading a book month, you know it’s serious. This is just a great, sink into and laugh your butt off series. The characters, Charley’s inner monologue, and all the dialogue are just so entertaining. I love the characters we already knew, Cookie, Ubie, etc, but the new ones are great additions to the series. I hope we see more of Donovan and his motorcycle gang, as well as Mistress Marigold. She’s very much a mystery that should be fun to solve. Getting back to old characters, Reyes behaviour wasn’t […]

Review: That Night

Oh my goodness, this was an amazing book. It was such a powerful read. The narrative was split between the current story, which starts as Tori leaves jail on parole, and the past history of what happened, told through a series of flashbacks. It sounds a bit confusing, but it wasn’t. It was easy to follow, and even easier to get addicted to. I was delighted at the Canadian setting. Not just that it was Canadian, but the book is set in the town that I live in, which is crazy. I don’t live in a metropolis either, I live […]

Review: Second Grave on the Left

Oh let me count the ways I love this book. Sassy. Sarcastic. Ridiculous sitatuations. Grim reaper. Hot smexy guys. And the list goes on and on. I loved the first book so much that I had to pick up the second book right away. And I read it right away, finishing in less than 24 hours. I couldn’t put it down, I had to get as much fun and excitement as possible, as fast as possible. All of the characters from the first book are back, with Cookie having a very prominent role this time. She’s not as level headed […]

Review: First Grave On The Right

Why did no one physically put this book into my hands and tell me to read it now because I would absolutely love it? Because I did absolutely love it! It is everything I could want in a paranormal book. Funny. Sassy. Sarcastic. Strong heroine. Smexy and irritating partner. Loving family members. Smexy paranormal guy who is probably bad. Action. Adventure. Everything! I honestly have no idea where to even start my review because I loved every aspect of this book. Charley was a great main character. She’s so sassy and sarcastic. She’s constantly spouting out one-liners that are highly […]

Review: A Taste Fur Murder

This is an utterly delightful and amusing cozy mystery featuring a lot of animals and a strong dose of the paranormal. With dead cats and ectoplasmic dogs helping her, Foxtrot is tasked with preventing the murder of her boss ZZ by unknown parties in order to save a special graveyard. Throw in a heap of humour, a dash of romance, and a large eclectic cast of characters, and this makes for a very fun read. Foxtrot is quite likable, and easy to understand. She’s a kind hearted animal lover who adores her boss and her crazy life. She manages to […]
