Katiebird Reviews the Male POV

When I look back at some of my favorite books that I’ve read this year, I noticed a trend. The Male POV.  Authors who decide to share their leading man’s point of view. You would think that the storyline would be exactly the same, but that isn’t necessarily the case. I found that it was so much more revealing.

I want to share three of my favorites from 2015…

Katiebird Reviews the Steam Punk Genre, Part 1

I want to share with you my love of the paranormal genre called Steam Punk. It’s been a personal favorite of mine, and I have recently read a few book series that fit into this niche.

Gina Reviews: My Scariest Reads

I can’t believe it’s October already! This is absolutely, my favourite month of the year. Once I get over the pain of leaving summer behind, I fully embrace sweater weather. There is something about the cool, crisp air that inspires comfort. I also enjoy our Canadian Thanksgiving holiday and my favourite holiday of the year…Halloween. In honour of this spooky holiday I thought I would share some of my scariest reads.

Show me any slasher flick and I’ll be sure to sit through most of it without flinching. Show me a good ghost story or a psychological thriller? Chances are I’ll be up with the light on until the wee hours. Same goes for books. There are a few times I wanted to make like Joey from Friends and put my copy of The Shining in the freezer…

Review: Covet by J.R. Ward

  Redemption isn’t a word Jim Heron knows much about—his specialty is revenge, and to him, sin is all relative. But everything changes when he becomes a fallen angel and is charge with saving the souls of seven people from the seven deadly sins. And failure is not an option. Vin DiPietro long ago sold his soul to his business, and he’s good with that — until fate intervenes in the form of a tough- talking, Harley-riding, self-professed savior. But then he meets a woman who will make him question his destiny, his sanity, and his heart—and he has to work with a fallen angel to win her over and redeem his own soul.
