Jellicle Girl – Stevie Mikayne

I was having a bad day when I began reading Jellicle Girl. It happens, it’s okay now. The reason I mention it is that I didn’t read the blurb before picking this book. All I saw was that it had been written by Stevie Mikayne and since I love her Jil Kidd series, I didn’t … Continue reading Jellicle Girl – Stevie Mikayne

History of Magic (Ember Academy for Young Witches, #2) – L.C. Mawson

History of Magic picks up right where Basics of Spellcraft left off and ends on another cliffhanger. I would not recommend reading this episode if you haven't read the first one first. After the events in book 1, the Amazons are not convinced Amy can be trusted with her powers. They decide to train her … Continue reading History of Magic (Ember Academy for Young Witches, #2) – L.C. Mawson

Basics of Spellcraft (Ember Academy for Young Witches #1) – L.C. Mawson

On the surface, Amy (Amelia) is like every other sixteen-year-olds – albeit with ADHD – yet in a rather short period of time, she finds out that she’s a Witch and also that maybe she’s attracted to other girls. Or at least to one other girl, Natalie, who is part-Witch part-Vampire. And maybe another, Willow, … Continue reading Basics of Spellcraft (Ember Academy for Young Witches #1) – L.C. Mawson

On a LARP / Zero Sum Game / Say Her Name – Stefani Deoul

You know how sometimes a book comes out and it’s part of a series so instead of reading a single new book you kinda go back in time and read the previous ones too and you’re suddenly discovering a whole new world? That’s what happened to me here and it’s more than a little exhilarating. … Continue reading On a LARP / Zero Sum Game / Say Her Name – Stefani Deoul

Sophomore Surge (Sophie Fournier #2) – K.R. Collins

At the end of Breaking the Ice, many reviewers, myself included, wondered whether we’d get some romance in the next book. It made sense that there wasn’t any in the first one: Sophie was eighteen, the first woman drafted into the NAHL, very focused on her first season and not giving anyone reason to get … Continue reading Sophomore Surge (Sophie Fournier #2) – K.R. Collins

Breaking the Ice (Sophie Fournier #1) – K.R. Collins

Before I discovered lesfic, I never thought it could be that much fun to read about sports. I mean, I often find watching sports boring, even those I understand (unless I'm in the stands, and there's noise and enthusiasm and all), so how could it be interesting without only words and no images? And yet. … Continue reading Breaking the Ice (Sophie Fournier #1) – K.R. Collins

Daughter of Fire: The Darkness Rising (Destiny and Darkness #2) – Karen Frost

As I was hoping, the first book, Daughter of Fire: Conspiracy of the Dark, was setting the scene and this one is where the action really takes place. Yet not all the action since it, once again, ends on a cliffhanger, although it's a lot less frustrating than the end of book 1. Daughter of … Continue reading Daughter of Fire: The Darkness Rising (Destiny and Darkness #2) – Karen Frost

Not Today (Rainbow Central Book 1) – Arizona Tape

Harper doesn’t do casual. She’d like to, but feelings seem to always get in the way. At least that’s what she thinks. She’s only ever had one relationship, with a closeted girl, so maybe the problem wasn’t that Harper wanted more but that her ex wasn’t ready (nor willing) to give it to her. Nix, … Continue reading Not Today (Rainbow Central Book 1) – Arizona Tape

Hammers, Strings, and Beautiful Things – Morgan Lee Miller

I liked this book a lot more by the end than I did at the beginning. At first, I couldn’t get where the author was going. I loved Morgan Lee Miller's debut novel, All the Worlds Between Us, and it felt like she wanted to try and create an older, more rock'n'roll version of the … Continue reading Hammers, Strings, and Beautiful Things – Morgan Lee Miller

Daughter of Fire: Conspiracy of the Dark (Destiny and Darkness #1) – Karen Frost

This is a frustrating read. Like other reviewers before me, I wonder why the story is being told in two different books. This one feels like an introduction and not much more. The world building is good (though it feels too much like Harry Potter meets GoT, I was having plenty of déjà vu feelings) … Continue reading Daughter of Fire: Conspiracy of the Dark (Destiny and Darkness #1) – Karen Frost
