Read this Week:

The only reason I was able to read so much this past week is cause most things were either short, rereads or audiobooks. Work has been insane with the holidays and I can not wait until it gets back to normal. Wildcard was good but I think the first book was better, it just felt like this one was missing some kinda essence that the first one had, I gave it 4/5.  For Real was my favorite book of the week and it is so amazing. It is all about a BDSM realtionship between two men but its done in a healthy and completely consensual way. I adore the two main characters and they have become all time favorites of mine. I will defintely be looking into other works by Alexis Hall and I gave it a 5/5.

Read this Week:

Winterhouse (Winterhouse, #1) A Problematic Paradox The Becoming of Noah Shaw (The Shaw Confessions, #1) Estranged The Unicorn Quest

Winterhouse was a wonderful mystery about a girl who has never felt wanted and finds her destiny in a book at a strange place called Winterhouse. The audio was exceptional and I loved this one. A Problematic Paradox is a fun sci-fi adventure that is a bit out of this world. I loved all the gadgets and craziness in this book. The Becoming of Noah Shaw I listened to on audio and really enjoyed it. It’s a bit messed up, but that whole universe is. I loved Mara Dyer and I’m hoping I’ll enjoy the rest of the series. Estranged was an awesome graphic novel about a changling and the human who he replaced. All things fairies and magic. The Unicorn Quest could have been better… and lacked mostly in unicorns but I’m sure the rest of the series will pick up where this one left off, which had quite a cliffhanger!
