Outlander (Outlander Series, Book 1)-by Diana Gabaldon—Rating 3 stars

I thought this book was really good except one thing that happened that I didn’t like, which kept me from giving it a better rating. But it was still good and I do still plan to continue the series.

Seduce me in dreams (Three Worlds, Book 1) by Jacquelyn Frank—Rating 3 stars

This book was a little bit different but it kept you interested and made you fall in love with Bronse, the male lead.

Interview with the Vampire (Vampire Chronicles, Book 1) by Anne Rice—Rating 1 star

I found this book hard to follow, it was confusing when they kept going between Louis’s narration and what was going on in the interview room. Once Claudia was introduced it did get better, but it still was unable to retain my interest. This is one of the few instances that I would say skip the book and watch the movie.

Bloodsucking Fiends (Love Story, Book 1) by Christopher Moore—Rating 2 stars

Looking at my rating, you may think I didn’t like this book, but I most of this book I enjoyed. I didn’t think I’d like it, but the humor kept me interested, although it may be too crude for some. The only reason the rating is so low, is because the ending lacked the humor that I enjoyed so much throughout the book.

Dates from Hell by Kim Harrison, Lynsay Sands, Kelley Armstrong, & Lori Handeland—Rating 2 stars

I’m not your typical anthology reader, Kim Harrison’s story bored me, I thought Lynsay Sand’s was cute, but a storyline that has been overdone and overall was predictable. Lori Handeland’s was good, but Kelley Armstrong’s was my hands down favorite.

A Fistful of Charms (Hollows, Book 4) by Kim Harrison—Rating 2 stars

This book disappointed me. I just expected so much more out of it, but found myself bored through most of it. Maybe it was a lack of intimacy with no Trent and very litte Kisten? The bright spot was Jenks, who got to be big in this book and he never disappointed with his curses against Tinkerbelle (“Tink’s panties”).

Stone Kissed by Keri Stevens—Rating 4 stars

This was book was quite the little surprise for me. I expected it to be kind of juvenile and cutesey, but instead I found that it was creative and different. The story pulled me in with the wide array of different characters. This was easily my favorite book I read all month. It was centered around the last Steward Witch, Delia, who was forced to come back home when her father was badly burned when her childhood home burned. While there she has to work with her childhood crush, Grant, and avoiding her cousin Cecily who happens to be a succubus, killing innocent men everywhere she goes.
