Imprudence by Gail Carriger

Imprudence by Gail Carriger

5 Nuts   Now this is what I expected of a Gail Carriger spin off series! This is the kind of book I really wanted from PRUDENCE. There’s plenty of interaction between Rue and Alexia but it is less harsh and unkind that it seemed in PRUDENCE. I had a lot of issues with the […]

Prudence by Gail Carriger

Prudence by Gail Carriger

4 Nuts Well now, this was different.  After two series and two novellas with Miss Carriger I thought I knew what to expect from her. Until Custard Protocol, that is. It’s a strange feeling after being so in love with a series to have to go back and reacquaint yourself with the same world from […]

Romancing the Inventor by Ga..

Romancing the Inventor by Gail Carriger

4 Nuts This second self published novella in the Parasolverse is the first of the LGBT offerings from Miss Carriger. Ladies and gentlemen, this is a story I didn’t know I wanted. Adult Genevieve Lefoux has never appealed to me the way her childhood self did. For the first time though, I felt myself finally […]

Broken Things by Lauren Oliv..

Broken Things by Lauren Oliver

3.5 Nuts This is the first Lauren Oliver book I’ve finished since the Delirum series. I’m usually a fan of the YA murder mystery/thriller genre, so while this book wasn’t great, I did still enjoy the base story. I mean I did read the whole thing in a couple of days after all. The problem […]

One Dark Throne by Kendare B..

One Dark Throne by Kendare Blake

5 Nuts I’m always doing this to myself.  I find a series I’m in love with and I marathon whatever’s out until there’s none left and I have to WAIT for the next one. That’s how I felt finishing the first two installments in this series. By the time I was done with ONE DARK […]

Three Dark Crowns by Kendare..

Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake

4 Nuts Three badass ladies being sneaky and playing at both politics and murder? Don’t mind if I do.  Why in the world did I wait so long to read this lovely book? It’s dark, it’s brutal, it’s everything everyone told me it would be. This book has been sitting on my shelf for ages, […]

Timeless by Gail Carriger

Timeless by Gail Carriger

5 Nuts. *flails, sobbing* It’s over! I can’t believe it’s over. My god, what a ride. I won’t even hesitate to say that this is one of the best series I have ever read. Really and truly. The Parasol Protectorate is just plain FUN, there’s nothing else I could call it. I have thoroughly enjoyed […]

Heartless by Gail Carriger

Heartless by Gail Carriger

5 Nuts Lawd, Miss Carriger is the queen of the perfect urban steampunk fantasy romp. I have never read a more consistently good author in all of the time I’ve been reviewing books. Not once have I been disappointed in one of the Parasolverse books, and the Parasol Protectorate in particular are always top notch […]

Poison and Protect by Gail C..

Poison and Protect by Gail Carriger

4 Nuts Ooooh giiiiirrrrl , get you some Scottish soldier. I’m going to only say this once: POISON AND PROTECT is NOT a YA novel. Yes it is about Presha from FINISHING SCHOOL. Yes the cover sort of looks like those. NO it is not for teens (unless they are at a point where they […]

Blameless by Gail Carriger

Blameless by Gail Carriger

4.5 Nuts LORD MACCON, YOU FRUSTRATING BERK OF A MAN, YOU APOLOGIZE TO YOUR WIFE THIS INSTANT! That’s pretty much the main thought that sat in my brain as I listened to the insufferable werewolf alpha pine away after his own idiocy caused the problem. Blasted men and their blasted pride. BLAMELESS “splits the party” […]
