(I got you there didn’t I…you thought I was going to say Glitter Pixies, didn’t you)

Daggerspell by Katherine Kevy  (Goodreads Link)

Even as a young girl, Jill was a favorite of the magical, mysterious Wildfolk, who appeared to her from their invisible realm. Little did she know her extraordinary friends represented but a glimpse of a forgotten past and a fateful future. Four hundred years-and many lifetimes-ago, one selfish young lord caused the death of two innocent lovers. Then and there he vowed never to rest until he’d rightened that wrong-and laid the foundation for the lives of Jill and all those whom she would hold dear: her  father, the mercenary soldier Cullyn; the exiled  berserker Rhodry Maelwaedd; and the ancient and  powerful herbman Nevyn, all bound in a struggle against darkness. . . and a quest to fulfill …

Book Blurb:

Young Fitz is the bastard son of the noble Prince Chivalry, raised in the shadow of the royal court by his father’s gruff stableman. He is treated like an outcast by all the royalty except the devious King Shrewd, who has him secretly tutored in the arts of the assassin. For in Fitz’s blood runs the magic Skill–and the darker knowledge of a child raised with the stable hounds and rejected by his family. As barbarous raiders ravage the coasts, Fitz is growing to manhood. Soon he will face his first dangerous, soul-shattering mission. And though some regard him as a threat to the …

Good morning everybody!

It is now time to reveal the how the July votes went!

July’s book will be:

Soulless by Gail Carriger

First, she has no soul. Second, she’s a spinster whose father is both Italian and dead. Third, she was rudely attacked by a vampire, breaking all standards of social etiquette.

Where to go from there? From bad to worse apparently, for Alexia accidentally kills the vampire – and then the appalling Lord Maccon (loud, messy, gorgeous, and werewolf) is sent by Queen Victoria to investigate.

With unexpected vampires appearing and expected vampires disappearing, everyone seems to believe Alexia responsible. Can she figure out what is actually happening to London’s high society? Will her soulless ability to negate supernatural powers prove useful or just plain embarrassing? Finally, who is the real enemy, and do they have treacle tart?


This month we will also be continuing the Farseer Trilogy by Robin Hobb with the …

On the Book Lovers Shelves: The Winged Lover (who has moved)

Good afternoon!

I hope you are all having a lovely day. Mine was absolutely terrible because we’re in the middle of a wet spot in Sydney and I haven’t been completely dry since Friday.  But enough about that 😀 because today I wanted to give you an update on the state of my shelves.

Why? You may ask. Has something drastic changed that has merited this update?

Why yes, dear readers, it has. You see I moved last November and have nearly finished settling in to my new home (with my new hubby :D). My bookshelves have grown since you last saw them, my TBR pile is now at 90 (far out how did it get that high) and I still have absolutely no room. I honestly thought I’d have room to spare after stacking my shelves, but alas it filled up a lot quicker than I anticipated…as per usual

Unfortunately I don’t have …

Book Blurb:

Iris Scanlon, Half-Moon Hollow’s only daytime vampire concierge, knows more about the undead than she’d like. Running all their daylight errands—from letting in the plumber to picking up some chilled O neg—gives her a look at the not-so-glamorous side of vampire life. Her rules are strict; relationships with vamps are strictly business, not friendship—and certainly not anything else. But then she finds her newest client, Cal, poisoned on his kitchen floor, and only Iris can help.

Cal – who would be devastatingly sexy, if Iris allowed herself to think that way – offers Iris a …

Book Blurb:

Passion. Fate. Loyalty.

Would you risk it all to change your destiny?

The last thing Kelsey Hayes thought she’d be doing this summer was trying to break a 300-year-old Indian curse. With a mysterious white tiger named Ren. Halfway around the world. But that’s exactly what happened. Face-to-face with dark forces, spellbinding magic, and mystical worlds where nothing is what it seems, Kelsey risks everything to piece together an ancient prophecy that could break the curse forever.

Tiger’s Curse is the exciting first volume in an epic fantasy-romance that will leave you breathless and yearning for more.

My Thoughts:

Although the adventure intrigued me, the main character and the …

Book Lovers Book Club: Discussion Questions – Once Burned by Jeaniene Frost

Good afternoon everyone,

As you may have seen my Once Burned review went up this morning, so I thought that with that review going up I’d pose some discussion questions for anyone who has already read/is reading Once Burned and would like to discuss it:

Do you think that Leila’s “innocence” was handled appropriately? It wasn’t really the first time cliche we’re used to in romance.

Are you a classic Dracula fan? Do you like how Frost portrayed the character?

What did you think of the explanation for Leila’s powers? Was it adequate enough for you?

Naturally if you have any discussion questions feel free to post them in the comments for everyone to have a go at answering and lets see if we can get a big discussion going.

Also make sure to vote for next months Book in the poll on the sidebar.

Happy Reading!
