Book Rating:7.8 Characters: So Not a Hero (A Hesitant Hero Book 1) First published: May 18th 2015Rating: 7.82 stars GoodReads:So Not a Hero Review: TL;DR: A misogynistic tale of the world ogling a woman’s boobs and butt when she is not busy shopping or worrying about men. Too much T & A. Too little super heroing.

Book Rating:8.2 Characters: The Farrier’s Daughter: The Irish Witch Series – Book One (Irish Witch Book 1) First published: June 24th 2014Rating: 8.18 stars GoodReads:The Farrier’s Daughter: The Irish Witch Series – Book One Review: Reading books that take place hundreds of years in the past always make me want to jump into the story and speak my mind and the better the book, the more i want to enter the pages because I want to help the heroine and make things happen. I really enjoyed reading this first installment with all the magic, all the lovely descriptions and the relationship of Killian and Allian. Can’t wait for her further story.
Author: First Book Publish:2017 Books in series: 1 Avg. Book Rating:6.9 Characters: Maan kätkemät (Maan, Veden Ja Tulen Väki Book 1) First published: January 18th 2017Rating: 6.88 stars GoodReads:Maan kätkemät Review: Yllättävän kiehtova kotimainen lastenkirja! Kirjoittaja on hyvin luultavasti lukenut huolella Harry Potterinsa, sillä tämä kirja sisältää paljon Pottermaisia asetelmia ja elementtejä..jopa tarinan kerronta ja dialogi muistuttaa mielestäni hieman Potterin suomennoksia. On vähän samantyyppistä “jästi-taikaolento”-jakoa, taikakoulua (jossa eka tunti lapsilla niin ikään on esineiden leijutusta). Tarina itsessään on kuitenkin ihan omanlaisensa suomalaisiin olosuhteisiin aika uskottavasti istuva tontt

Book Rating:8.1 Characters: Drama Queens With Love Scenes (Actors And Angels Book 1) First published: November 30th 2012Rating: 8.06 stars GoodReads:Drama Queens With Love Scenes Review: I enjoyed this book. It was fun with some interesting ideas thrown in. I wondered what genre it fits into, though. Is there a section called Fiction for Open-minded People?
Author: First Book Publish:2008 Books in series: 1 Avg. Book Rating:6.4 Characters: Lace and Blade (Lace And Blade Book 1) First published: February 13th 2008Rating: 6.42 stars GoodReads:Lace and Blade Review: I bought this mainly for Sherwood Smith’s story, “Rules of Engagement”, and unsurprisingly, it was my favorite story in the collection (I would give it four stars), with her usual excellent worldbuilding (present even in short form) and fascinating interplay between characters. I generally enjoyed the other stories, with my usual caveat of short stories not being really my thing. The other two I found memorable were Dave Smeds’ “The Beheaded Queen”, which managed to make a disembodied head a gen

Book Rating:6.4 Characters: The Ghost Hunters Club (The Ghost Hunters Club Book 1) First published: November 23rd 2011Rating: 6.36 stars GoodReads:The Ghost Hunters Club Review: Interesting idea for a book. Too bad the author wrote with such poor style and grammar. I stopped reading at about page 30 – it just became too much. Ask a friend or hire a proofreader next time!

Book Rating:7.3 Characters: Lake Caerwych (Copper & Cobalt, #1) (Copper & Cobalt Book 1) First published: July 4th 2014Rating: 7.32 stars GoodReads:Lake Caerwych (Copper & Cobalt, #1) Review: Bridget and Celena are best friends in a Missouri High School.

Book Rating:9.5 Characters: The Dragon Dreamer (Dragon Dreamer Book 1) First published: May 9th 2014Rating: 9.48 stars GoodReads:The Dragon Dreamer Review: Really loved this book with its underlying message of being tolerant of others especially those who are different. It encourages us to live in peace with our fellow creatures. Dragon Lightning (Dragon Dreamer Book 2) (Dragon Dreamer Book 2) First published: October 9th 2016Rating: 9.78 stars GoodReads:Dragon Lightning (Dragon Dreamer Book 2) Review: Well, I’ve been eagerly awaiting the second volume in Ms Burke’s Dragon Dreamer series and I was not disappointed. Bowled over, yes. Blown away, for sure. Wow!
Author: First Book Publish:2013 Books in series: 1 Avg. Book Rating:7.3 Characters: Manannan’s Magic (Manannan Trilogy Book 1) First published: February 28th 2013Rating: 7.34 stars GoodReads:Manannan’s Magic Review: From the very first and magical sentence, I was hooked on this novel. In a truly human story set in the Isle of Man’s misty past, when the Celts and the Vikings became embroiled in an unequal conflict, the characters, Renny, her fellow villagers together with the mysterious McLir, are so totally believable the reader becomes almost a part of this fabulous story. The writing is clear and uncluttered, the imagery powerful and the story-line unfolds as naturally as the opening of a flower. My wife

Book Rating:8.3 Characters: Faeries’ Landing, Vol. 3 (Faeries’ Landing Book 1) First published: May 3rd 2004Rating: 8.1 stars GoodReads:Faeries’ Landing, Vol. 3 Review: Took me a little while to get back into this one. I was slightly confused by what was going on at the start. But once it got going it was alright. Faeries’ Landing, Volume 19 (Faeries’ Landing Book 2) First published: June 9th 2008Rating: 8.38 stars GoodReads:Faeries’ Landing, Volume 19 Review: This was a great novel, but I read through 19 of them, thinking this one was it, this was the end, only to have a cliffhanger ending. THEN to read somewhere else that the series was cancelled, not just here, but in Korea. So there will never be a complete ending. 19 books! 19! And then to find out, “Sorry, no resolution for you.” Bite me, publishers. Faeries’ Landing, Vol. 5 (Faeries’ Landing Book 3) First published: September 6th 2004Rating: 8.38 stars GoodReads:Faeries’ Landing, Vol. 5 Review: An okay manga series, it was amusing at parts but too long and un-ending for me. I never finished the series.
