Blogger on Books Vl (2018)

The Blogger on Books Series dates back to my time on My Space. Put a book nerd on social media, what am I going to talk about? Books, of course. And a series was born. I write about books just-read. Not every one; just the ones I want to write about. Catch Blogger on Books lV and V here on the site and Blogger on Books 1 through 3 on Wadadli Pen (my other blog). Every now and again I’ll migrate one of those My Space reviews over here as well; those are tagged as throwback reviews.

Last read …

Throwback Review – meaning reviews I blogged way back in my My Space days and am now relocating here.

Vegas Bites: a Werewolf Romance Anthology by L.A. Banks, J.M. Jeffries, Seressie Glass, Natalie Dunbar

Vegas Bites

It took longer to finish than expected; didn’t draw me in as anticipated (maybe I just prefer vamps to wolves). My favourite story was The Hunger Within by J M Jeffries, the hottest of the stories in my opinion, with the most interesting plot twist and best character chemistry. My favourite character though was Kellie in Out of the Dark by Natalie Dunbar; she was kick-ass. Favourite male character, Jarred in The Hunger Within.
