“It’s almost tragic, really, how much we take for granted the beauty that surrounds us everyday.“I think that line sums this book up pretty well. Austin knows his time is almost up, so he takes one weekend to have new experiences, spend time with his best friend, and make sure those he knows will be okay when he’s gone. He’s trying to live what little of his life he has left, and he doesn’t want the people around him to waste theirs anymore. Yes, this book made me cry. I knew he was going to die, but after spending 190 pages with Austin on his journey to spread life, I couldn’t help it.Even though there is a sad ending, the whole book isn’t sad. Austin is so full of life […]
Firelight has combined a few of my favorite things: Beauty and the Beast, Phantom of the Opera, and paranormal elements. I love me a scarred, masked hero and Lord Benjamin Archer is no exception. Kristen Callihan’s writing is very descriptive. At times I loved this, since I could easily picture the setting and the characters. Other times it was too much and I’d get lost in the details and need to reread parts to pull out the important things.The chemistry between Miranda and Archer is hot! The sexual tension is also thick, and I just kept thinking “do it already!!!” Gosh, those two were frustrating (not in a bad way). They both wanted each other, but she was too embarrassed to say anything, and he didn’t want her to see […]
I finished this book in one sitting! Party because it’s super short, but also because it’s super fun! In Ushers, Inc we meet Abby, Zach, Tracy, and Cliff: four orphaned, horror movie fans, working at the local Cinema. After fighting off a zombie invasion, the quartet are all over the news and their new business of fighting the undead begins. Abby is a bit reluctant about this at first, but Cliff pretty much takes over and gets everything started. Cliff is such a jerk! I loved to hate him, because without him there wouldn’t have been any Ushers, Inc.Abby is kickass and steps up when she’s need and takes care of business. Zach and Tracy are great side characters, as well as Mia and Wyatt!Ushers, Inc is action packed, humorous, […]

I must say that I love the author’s take on what happens to us when we die! After a reaper has dropped us off in Heaven, we’ll be presented with three choices: Reaper, Angel, or Cupid. One of these jobs must be taken, with all rules abided by, or get sent straight to hell! Well, Leigh is dead and she makes her choice: Reaper, but fails. So she moves on to Angel: fails again. Her last shot at avoiding the fiery pit of hell is being a matchmaker for the still-breathing. Thankfully, Leigh can do that, at least until there’s a little mishap in the Assignment Room and her “punishment” is finding love for Natalie, who “hates people.” Leigh definitely has her work cut out for her with that one!Leigh […]
