Shadow Kiss - Richelle Mead Another fantastic book in the VAMPIRE ACADEMY series. Things get a bit darker for Rose. She starts to think she’s losing her mind, especially when she starts seeing ghosts. In addition to that, she’s worried about Lissa who’s begun experimenting with her magic. And, of course, you’ve got the ongoing drama of her forbidden relationship with Dimitri.You can read the full review here: http://www.fantasybookaddict.com/2013/09/13/shadow-kiss-mead/
Frostbite - Richelle Mead Well Richelle, you delivered once again. Oh, and I was worried. I never thought Frostbite could be as good as Vampire Academy. Why? Because VA was one of the best YA paranormals I've ever read. Maybe, just maybe, my all-time favorite. I'll be honest here and admit that I actually went into this one expecting to be let down.

Unravel Me - Tahereh Mafi I thought I loved SHATTER ME, but UNRAVEL ME surpasses it by a thousand. Honestly, I’m shocked. I’m normally disappointed with sequels. It seems like they never live up to the original. But, in this case, it blows the original away.You can read my full review here: http://www.fantasybookaddict.com/2013/09/07/unravel-me-mafi/

Shatter Me

Shatter Me - Tahereh Mafi I absolutely loved SHATTER ME. I’m going to give you several reasons why you need to start reading this series immediately. First, Juliette is a total badass. She’s so broken and her life has been incredibly hard, but she fights through it. I love where she is by the end of this book. Second, her love interest (who I won’t name because it spoils part of the story) has been added to my list of fictional boyfriends. He’s all kinds of yummy. Third, Tahereh Mafi has created a world so vivid it feels real to me somehow. I love when authors are able to engulf you into their world. Not every writer has this ability, but Tahereh does.You can read the full review here: http://www.fantasybookaddict.com/2013/09/06/shatter-me-mafi-review/
Obsession - Jennifer L. Armentrout This is the second Covet line novel I’ve read from Entangled. It’s the standalone adult spin-off to the bestselling YA Sci-fi series, Lux. For all you younger fans, it’s very adult. There are graphic sex scenes and I really wouldn’t promote it to anyone other than adults.You can read the full review here: http://www.fantasybookaddict.com/2013/09/03/obsession-armentrout-review/
Wrath-Bearing Tree - James Enge This review was written by Michael Cummings, senior reviewer with the Fantasy Book Addict website.Readers of Ovid looking for something with a little more sex and magic would do well to dwell in these pages. Like A Guile of Dragons, Wrath-Bearing Tree is a book whose mood implies it is best savored on a stormy summer afternoon, or from the comfort of a stuffed chair on a cold and bleak autumn night.Continuing the early adventures of Morlock Ambrosius, Wrath-Bearing Tree begins by giving us a taste of life in the kingdom of Kaen and how easy it is for one of the many city gods of this continent to be replaced by an usurper. It stands to reason, then, that when Morlock is thrust into the middle of this, his only way out is to kill a god and return home to the Graith.You can read the rest of the review here: http://www.fantasybookaddict.com/2013/09/01/wrath-bearing-tree-enge/
The King's Blood - Daniel Abraham This review was written by Michael Cummings, senior reviewer with the Fantasy Book Addict website.Where to begin with the second volume of the Dagger and the Coin? This is still the story of a brazen girl turned banker and a bookworm too afraid to know when to stop. It’s still the story of a mercenary and an old defunct priest as they head out to deal with a goddess whose priests have spiders for blood.But it’s also so much more.You can read the full review here: http://www.fantasybookaddict.com/2013/08/31/the-kings-blood-abraham/
Abaddon's Gate - James S.A. Corey This review was written by Michael Cummings, senior reviewer with the Fantasy Book Addict.Abaddon’s Gate welcomes back James Holden and his motley crew in the third volume of the Expanse. At the end of Caliban’s War the alien artifact that wreaked havoc emerged from the cloud cover of Venus, it’s construction work complete. A giant ring is ejected into the outer solar system, where came to a rest, waiting.Read the full review here: http://www.fantasybookaddict.com/2013/08/30/abaddons-gate-corey/

Luck of the Dragon (Entangled Covet)

Luck of the Dragon - Susannah Scott Since I’m so obsessed with the Brazen line from Entangled, I decided to give Covet a try. I’m pleased to report I really enjoyed LUCK OF THE DRAGON. I don’t read dragon books often, so this was a nice change of pace.You can read the full review here:http://www.fantasybookaddict.com/2013/08/29/luck-of-the-dragon-scott/
Reboot - Amy Tintera I have to admit, I wasn’t excited about reading this book. I’d just come off of a ton of dystopias and the cover really wasn’t doing it any favors. Then, I watched the book trailer.You can read the full review here: http://www.fantasybookaddict.com/2013/08/28/reboot-tintera-review/
Vampire Academy - Richelle Mead I know I'm late reading this one. People have been bugging me for years to read it, but I've been on a vampire book hiatus because I watch so many vampire shows. I didn't want to burn myself out. Well anyway, I saw it on the shelves, read the first few pages, and couldn't put it down. You can read my full review here: http://www.fantasybookaddict.com/2013/08/25/vampire-academy-mead/
Skin in the Game - Jackie Barbosa Yup, here I am reviewing another Entangled Brazen release. I swear, I've pretty much read them all. I should be on an auto-buy list.Angela Peterson was my favorite part of the book. Great, strong heroine which is good for a contemporary romance. Unfortunately, CR titles tend to feature meek females which I normally hate, so it was good to have Angela to cheer for. Cade Reynolds was also a good hero. He was well developed and sexy as hell. I'm a big football fan so I really enjoyed the sports angle. I don't get to read enough of those. The reason I'm giving it a four and not a five is because of how the characters are introduced. Why Cade is in town is completely unlikely if not impossible for a current football player. Now, if you don't know football you won't care, but I do. I have to believe what you're telling me is possible and I just don't.All-in-all I did enjoy this one and I will look for other Jackie Barbosa titles in the future. I just hope next time she does more research.

Two Wrongs, One Right

Two Wrongs, One Right - Katee Robert I was pleasantly surprised at how much I loved this book. I wasn't really a fan of Nathan's when he was introduced in WRONG BED, RIGHT GUY. However, this book changed my entire opinion of him. Chelsea was a bit wimpy for my personal taste, but her ARC was strong, so I was happy where she ended up at the end. It was also fun to revisit with Gabe and Elle from book one. They added some fun scenes into the story. The canoe scene has to be my favorite. I don't want to spoil anything, so I won't say anymore. This book is filled with fun, sexy love scenes. Typical for Katee Robert. Her contemporary romance novels have been added to my have-to-buy department. :-)I highly recommend reading the series, but each one could stand alone.
