Review: Her Mad Hatter by Marie Hall

A sexy, but too short adventure into an adult Wonderland! Marie Hall takes on one of my fave childhood fairy tales and revamps it for me as an adult in Her Mad Hatter. There’s just enough detail to bring you back to that familiar world with some new ideas that make it her own, this is not just another re-telling.

Audiobook Review: Storm Front by Jim Butcher

Audiobook Review: Storm Front by Jim Butcher

Can’t wait to read what comes next for this wizard.   THE NARRATOR… James Marsters (aka Spike from Buffy) really brings Harry Dresden’s character to life with his calm and collected narration. He has a smooth voice and makes flawless distinctions with each character in the story. James’ narration can sometimes get a little breathy, but I find that it fits the mood of the scene and wasn’t […]
