NetGalley success!

My first NetGalley approval! Like the lottery, it helps to actually request titles.

Kensington Publisher's approved my request to read/review Feel the Burn by G.A. Aiken. I can't wait, I love this series!!!

Ok, off to class.

Latest read: Devoted in Death

Restarting my blog. Again, we'll see how long this lasts. My book reviews aren't going to be your traditional reviews. You can find a book synopsis and regular reviews everywhere. For now, the constants will be how many nights it took for me to read the book (always depends on how tired I am) and sexual violence (because I really don't like that in books)

Devoted in death / J.D. Robb.

Read: October 9, 2015.

I always like to save Eve and Roarke for a Friday or Saturday night. I KNOW I'm going to read it in one sitting so a day to sleep in is a must. In the 41st full length installment of J.D. Robb's In Death series Eve Dallas and her crew are on the hunt for a spree killing couple who have made their blood-soaked way up to New York City and set up shop. Can they locate them before they kill their latest victims?


Nights to read: 1
Favorite parts: As always, my favorite parts involved Dallas' interactions with her friends and colleagues.

  • Feeney and his magic coat.
  • The chocolate thief
  • Roarke's reaction to Eve bringing an unknown cop home without warning him in advance.

Sexual violence:

  • Dallas has her usual reminiscences about her past. I tend to skim over that part so I can't really tell you how detailed that gets.
  • The bad guys kidnap and drug a male victim and make him rape their female victim. The parts that dealt with this weren't very graphic. At this point the female victim had endured days of torture so the male victim was more emotionally scarred by this than she was.
