March Book Recommendations

No Comments

I am so glad to have had all these exciting books lined up on my “March bookshelf”…

Scroll down to find out more.

Alexis Hall: Iron & Velvet


Lesbian vampire. Lesbian P.I.  And a brilliant sense of humor. I don’t recall the last time I had this much fun reading a book! It actually made me laugh out loud several times, and then forced me to explain to my husband why I was giggling like a mad lady, tucked under the covers with my nose buried between the book’s pages.

Alexis Hall joins the clichés of the genre with a strong narrative, holding your complete, undivided attention from page one to the very end. If you’re looking for some hard-core urban fantasy, this may not be for you. However, if you’re open to some experimentation with the genre (and a few very well placed jabs at it at the same time), Alexis Hall just might be the perfect author.


C. S. Pacat: Prince’s Gambit, Kings Rising

The first book was promising, but the second and third have blown me away. Pacat’s world evolves, her characters grow, and in the midst of schemes and dishonor emerges one of the greatest love stories I have ever read!

I was never a big romance fan (although I do love reading romance incorporated into other genres), but these books, these books have left my heart bloodied and, in the end, completely, utterly melted.

There is only one way to truly express the ride that has been the Captive Prince trilogy: Feels. So many feels.

P.S. I shamelessly proclaim my intention to re-read all three books the first chance I get!


Karen Marie Moning: Darkfever, Bloodfever, Faefever, Dreamfever, Shadowfever

I admit, I binge-read all five books. And they truly were binge-worthy.

Although I’m not too keen on novels ending with a cliffhanger (I’m a firm believer that each book in a series should have its own arc that ends with at least a partial resolution), I loved these ones enough to not give them a hard time about it.

Wonderful world building, a well-plotted story, and characters that you can’t help falling in love with (finally, somebody who shares my obsession for O.P.I. pink nail polishes!) are only a few general points that make the Fever series so appealing. But in truth, it’s the  clever remarks and exchanges, the subtle and not-so-subtle shifts in the atmosphere… It’s the little things that will make you huddle in bed and read until your eyelids become the evil hoods that force you to squint at the pages…

I took a break after the fifth book, but I already have #6 on my bedstand and ready!

February Book Recommendations

1 Comment

Since February is slowly coming to an end,  I decided to compile a short list of books I recommend. Some are titles I read this month, some are titles I had read a long time ago, but are still vivid in my mind.

So if you’re looking for some inspiration on what to read next, scroll down.

Sarah J. Maas: A Court of Thorns and Roses


I read this title a while ago, but since the release date of the second book is fastly approaching, I figured I’d put it on the list so potential readers can get a head start.

I have read Maas’ Throne of Glass series and loved it, so I was naturally interested in a completely new storyline from the author. Well, I certainly wasn’t disappointed.

ACOTAR is a YA fantasy novel, although it reads more like a NA one, which is a big plus for me. The book drew me in from page one, held my attention right to the very end and left me checking the internet for the release date of A Court of Mist and Fury. The Fae world Maas creates is mesmerising, the perfect mix of visual appeal and intrigue. and the characters are well-written.

An excellent aspect of this book is that it can be appealing to those who like high fantasy as well as to readers who aren’t all that fond of the genre. I have friends in both categories and so far, neither complained even a bit.

C. S. Pacat: The Captive Prince


I read this gem earlier this month and promptly ordered the second book in the series. Although historical fiction isn’t exactly my cup of tea, I found myself unable to part with it after a few chapters.

The story itself is captivating and the M/M romantic aspect is a breeze to read after all the F/M fiction I have encountered in the past few months. But what I was particularly fond of is the fact that the book doesn’t stop just there.

Although set in the background (at least so far) are visible F/F pairings as well as a strong underlying bisexual aspect. For that last one alone I wanted to smack a kiss on the cover.

Ilona Andrews: On the Edge


Don’t be fooled by the cover. On the Edge is a charming urban/rustic fantasy novel, filled with mystery, action and romance. The world building is one of the best ones I have seen so far given the relatively short page count. If you decide to read it, you’ll know what I mean.

Set as the first title of a four book series about The Edge, a place between The Broken (that would be our magic-free world) and The Weird (a mirror image of our world, but ruled by magic), On the Edge is a wonderful introduction as well as a captivating stand-alone book.

But a word of advice: if you do decide to read the series, do it in order. Because even though each title follows its own storyline and has its own main characters, they are still linked to the previous books. Nothing truly major, but you may find yourself in the dark pertaining certain details.
