7ajxiqtTitle: The Night Circus

Author: Erin Morgenstern

Genre: Adult, Magical Realism

Date Published: September 13, 2011 by Doubleday

Purchase: Barnes & Noble | Amazon

Synopsis: The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it, no paper notices plastered on lampposts and billboards. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not.

Within these nocturnal black-and-white striped tents awaits an utterly unique, a feast for the senses, where one can get lost in a maze of clouds, meander through a lush garden made of ice, stare in wonderment as the tattooed contortionist folds herself into a small glass box, and become deliciously tipsy from the scents of caramel and cinnamon that waft through the air.

Comic Corner: Mini Reviews for January 2016

kpzcpqa

This is a new feature that I wanted to try. I love comics and graphic novels so why not share that here! I’ll do these in batches whenever I read 4-6 comics so these may be monthly, maybe not. These are just little mini reviews so don’t be expecting lengthy in depth type of essays. Anyways, here are the ones that I’ve read this month. 🙂 Continue reading

1)Manwhore +1 by Katy Evans – I just recently read the first book and despite the problems I had with it I still really enjoyed it. Plus, the ending left on a cliffhanger. Also, the more Saint the better! Continue reading

Review: Manwhore by Katy Evans

reviewbnnerevans

currentreadTitle: Manwhore

Author: Katy Evans

Genre: New Adult Romance

Date Published: March 24, 2015

Series: Manwhore Series #1

Buy the Book: Amazon | Barnes & Noble

Synopsis: This is the story I’ve been waiting for all my life, and its name is Malcolm Kyle Preston Logan Saint. Don’t be fooled by that last name though. There’s nothing holy about the man except the hell his parties raise. The hottest entrepreneur Chicago has ever known, he’s a man’s man with too much money to spend and too many women vying for his attention.

Mysterious. Privileged. Legendary. His entire life he’s been surrounded by the press as they dig for tidbits to see if his fairytale life is for real or all mirrors and social media lies. Since he hit the scene, his secrets have been his and his alone to keep. And that’s where I come in.

Assigned to investigate Saint and reveal his elusive personality, I’m determined to make him the story that will change my career.

But I never imagined he would change my life. Bit by bit, I start to wonder if I’m the one discovering him…or if he’s uncovering me.

What happens when the man they call Saint, makes you want to sin?

“A challenge is something you stop wanting once you acquire it. I can’t know if you’re a challenge yet until I make you mine.”

*Before I begin can I just say that I love the entire hell out of the cover to this book! I’m such a sucker for covers like these and all of their cheesiness and I can’t stop staring at it. Yes, I’m petting the cover with one hand while writing this review with the other. Stop judging me.*

This was so, so close to being a five star read for me. I loved the story of it and the pacing of the romance was really well done. It had all the potential in the world to be one of my favorites but almost every single character that wasn’t Saint held this back for me unfortunately. Continue reading

Hello, (blogging) world!

Welcome to my page here on the internet. I’m so excited! I’ve wanted to start my own blog for book reviews for years but never had the confidence to do so. Well, it looks like I’m ready now!

I’m Jamie, 23, Texan. I’m an avid reader and I have a weird obsession with Batman. Those are the basics about me, really.

In terms of books that I’ll be reviewing here on the site, well, I read just about everything so expect a mixed bag of stuff. From YA (Fantasy/Dystopian and Sci-Fi mostly) to Adult (Psychological Thrillers/Fantasy/Romance/Sci-Fi) and occasionally a New Adult book here and there.

I’m actually in the middle of Manwhore by Katy Evans so be on the lookout for that review very soon!

Thanks for stopping by!

Until the next one,

Jamie
