Tin Cat by Misa Buckley is a fun paranormal romance novella. I blazed through it and enjoyed every minute. The heroine, Amber, is snarky and brave. I loved that she was an unabashed geek with her own comic book shop to boot!
Last week I picked a paranormal romance with a yummy hunk cover but this week I’ve picked the other type of cover that often appeals to me. A fantasy style cover! Yes. I really am I geek and I love to read sci-fi and fantasy fiction.
I am a paranormal romance junkie. I’m always looking for new authors and today I have a one! 🙂 Lea Griffith’s brand new paranormal romance Retrieval is addicting! I couldn’t put the book down and finished it excited that I have a new series to look forward to.
Oh! I have an interview and contest with Lea 😀 Click HERE
I really, really need to learn to manage my time better… *YAWN* it’s the middle of the night again and I’m scrolling through Tuesdays’, Today’s! New books… And half of them aren’t showing the covers! *head/desk* I’m a cover junky and I WANT the covers… But It’s too late right now to fix them all. I do like seeing books sorted by date though, which was one of the major reasons I started on this journey. 😉
The middle of the month seems to have fewer new releases. Click HERE to see all my database lists for today… over 400 print/digital releases. There are a lot of series romance titles and Montlake publishing today.
Lots of duplicate titles because of the tricky fact that they have different identifying ISBNs *sigh* Use the Advanced Search function to make the list more manageable.
I love to read science fiction fantasy and urban fantasy so when I read the synopsis for this series I was intrigued. I’m so thankful I followed up on my impulse. I LOVED the first book!!! My review is below. I am rather kicking myself for not signing up for the rest of the tour. :p But I enjoyed Clutch so much I have already bought the sequels. The author, J.A. Huss is running a great contest all month. The Rafflecopter is at the bottom of the post. Make sure you enter for a chance to win 1 of 2 $50 gift cards and 3 autographed copies of Clutch. She is also giving everyone who signs up for her newsletter this first story, Clutch, free! I know *shakes head* an abundance of riches. She rocks! Ok, here’s my review….
Queen of Tarts Review
of Clutch by J.A. Huss
Clutch is a fast paced, addicting, science fiction adventure that hooked me from the start. When I first read about the book and saw that the heroine was 19 years old I assumed it was a YA novel. Ummm… It’s NOT! Junco is a damaged, tough, messed up cookie and she has a mouth on her like a sailor. She swears all the time. :p There’s also violence and adult situations (not as much as I’d hoped for :p but the beginnings of a romance).
Junco’s tough, she takes a lickin’ and keeps on tickin’. I liked Junco, actually I adored Junco! This is a first person novel… That’s not my favorite perspective normally, but for this story I was immediately sucked into Junco’s head and her world and held on tight for the ride. This is an adventure story, a vengeance story and a mystery and even the sparks of a love story… Its a story with science, politics, war, lies, intrigue and destiny. The world building felt so organic and real. The pieces of her life are stacked up naturally and never felt like “So Bob,” kind of details. 🙂 Everything seemed to flow and because her world is not so unfamiliar from ours I was able to easily suspend disbelief and enjoy this tale of humans in a possible future, aliens with wings, gene splicing and cloning and a host of other fascinating details.
