Alrighty, here are some reviews of books I've read as of late. They are mini because sometimes smaller is better.
Title: Fever Series (5 books)
Author: Karen Marie Moning
Genre: Adult, UF (there is sex and swearing in this book)
Review: I don't know if I can truly do this series justice, so I'm mini reviewing it for that purpose. In the future I may ATTEMPT to do a full review, but for now you get Mini. :D I have definitely caught the fever and I'm not in the least bit sorry about it. Karen Marie Moning has created the most fascinating world of Fae and death that I've ever seen...and I'm not usually a huge fan of a lot of Fae books. However, KMM does right by it and gives it the dark edge that it truly, truly needs. Mac is a fun character to watch move through this world and watching her grow up from Mac 1.0 to Mac 5.0 was definitely fun. But, to the point of the book. JERICHO BARRONS. This man is so delicious and amazing and hard and rough and...and...I don't know...words cannot contain him or explore his boundless qualities. He's not soft, AT ALL, ladies so don't expect flowers or kind words. He just IS. Barrons is my YUMMY. I would like to Book Boyfriend Post him, but seriously, I don't think I could tie Jericho Barrons down to any person in existence. Okay, I could go on forever, so I'm stopping. Just...if you love UF and worlds that are falling apart and Fae that are homicidal and sometimes naked and men you can't figure out for the life of you and evil that so horrible it chills you, PICK UP THIS SERIES. You won't be disappointed. I'm done. For real this time.
Title: Sean Griswold's Head
Published: March 1st, 2011
Genre: YA Contemporary
Review: Bella over at Absolutely Obsessed raved about this book so I had to give it a try. I ABSOLUTELY loved it! The gist of the story is Peyton walks in on her mother shoving a giant needle into her fathers butt and it turns out he has MS and everyone knew but her. She spends quite sometime being pissed about the betrayal of her family and very teen angsty. Peyton is so hilarious through the whole book that I think I giggled more often then not. Her "research" of Sean Griswold's head didn't cease to crack me up and I suddenly wanted a focus journal of my very own. Yeah, she may have been mad at her family for an OVERLY long time, but I totally understood that...which is probably due to my own anger issues. There are only like 2 times I kind of wanted to slap her, but she makes up for it and I still love Peyton. Plus, Sean was cute and fun and I kind of wanted to cuddle his head. :D
Title: Black Dust Mambo (Hoodoo No.1)
Author: Adrian Phoenix
Published: June 29th, 2010
Genre: Adult, Hoodoo, UF
Review: Let's be honest folks, I didn't really like this book much. I would probably give it a 2, but I'm not quite sure why. I didn't like the writing and the 3rd person omniscient perspective was really TMI! Plus, I think the whole: hi I'm a gay man possessing a super hot male body so I'm going to molest it because said body is nicely muscled and well-endowed was WAY over the top and weird...and not in a good way. That's saying a lot because I LOVE weird. This was like creepy-weird-I-need-to-take-a-shower-now kind of weird.
