Waiting on Wednesday (& Mini-Review of First Three Chapters of Ensnared by A.G. Howard)

Waiting on Wednesday 15

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights the upcoming releases that we’re most looking forward to. This week, I chose to spotlight Ensnared by A.G. Howard, which is being released soon! I just recently finished reading Unhinged, which ended with a bang, so I’m excited to read the final installment in this trilogy! I got a preview of the book from NetGalley (the first three chapters – I actually didn’t realize it was a preview when I requested it, but that was my mistake – it clearly stated it in the description), so I thought I’d talk a bit about my first impressions! Ensnared picks up one month after Unhinged ended. Alyssa finds herself in the same asylum that her mother spent so many years in. And she actually is just a touch … mad. Her mother and Jeb are both missing and, while she’s not exactly… Read more »

Review & Waiting on Wednesday – Opal by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Review & Waiting on Wednesday – Opal by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Reviews, Waiting on Wednesday 5 ★★★★★

My Waiting on Wednesday post has been combined with my review of Opal because they are so related… I think you can probably figure out what I’m waiting for, but scroll down to the bottom to see for sure… Title: Opal Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout Release Date: December 11, 2012 Pages: 382, Paperback Goodreads Rating: 4.49 stars My Rating: 5/5 stars Content Rating: PG-16? (My made-up rating to mean something between PG-13 and R, Some near-sex scenes and one sex scene which is definitely described, but not in physical detail.) Summary from Goodreads: No one is like Daemon Black. When he set out to prove his feelings for me, he wasn’t fooling around. Doubting him isn’t something I’ll do again, and now that we’ve made it through the rough patches, well… There’s a lot of spontaneous combustion going on. But even he can’t protect his family from the danger of trying to free those they love. After everything,… Read more »
