Book Review: Jinn and Juice

Born in ancient Persia, Leila turned to her house Jinni, Kouros, for help escaping an arranged marriage. Kouros did make it impossible for her to marry—by cursing Leila to live a thousand years as a Jinni herself.

If she can remain unBound, Leila's curse will soon be over. But Ozan Sawyer, a Magi with the ability to See, Call, and Bind jinn has other plans. 
Oz needs Leila to help him penetrate Pittsburgh's steel-soaked magic, a juice potent but poisonous to supernatural creatures, in order to find a missing girl with her own mysterious connection to Kouros. Unfortunately for Leila, becoming Bound to Oz may risk more than just her chance to be human once more—it could risk her very soul...

Jinn and Juice is the first in a new series by fantasy writer, Nicole Peeler, set in a world of immortal curses, powerful jinni and belly dancing.

I really enjoyed this book. Jinn and Juice was the first book that I have read by Nicole Peeler. I say was because immediately after reading this book I read the entire Jane True Series.... Marathon reading session. I felt that Lelia was the perfect mix of normal and supernatural and I believe that is the key to her being able to access the node on Pittsburgh. My only had two peeves with this book. One was the fact that Leila was constantly two steps behind the plot and only because the twist were slightly obvious. For a being that has been alive a thousand years and has been constantly ducking Magi to keep from being bound she was entirely too clueless. Secondly Leila and Oz develop this rule of no relationship while Bound. While not problematic for the author us readers will find it very problematic going forward.
Overall I gave the book 4/5 stars and would definitely recommend it as a good rainy day read. 
Let me know if you guys read this book and comment below if you have read the Jane True Series.

P.S. Someone must be talking about my little corner of the blogosphere because my post got a lot of views while I was sick. Thanks guys for the Love!

Book Review: Curse Unbroken

So here we go back into the Weird Girl World, and boy am I excited. This novel mark the last book in the Celia Wird story line and you know I have been wanted to hear more from the other sisters for a while. Especially Em but the next sister to get some time will be Taran and I think that she is in a good place in the story line to become the main character. In Curse Unbroken we find the supernatural community in search of a stone with a mind of its own. This stone grants wishes and everyone is trying to get their hands on it before the bad guys do and they want the wishes for themselves. That is everyone but Celia.

I really liked that Celia did not believe that the stone, Shah, was a tool to be used. Because the stone had obtained a sentient thought pattern and just wanted to be treated with respect. This is important these days because as humans we forget that everyone and everything is deserving of respect. When we forget that we end up not getting all that we could get from being respectful.

Overall I gave this book a 5/5. Cecy Robson reminded me what I liked about this series and neatly fixed the dilemmas in Celia's storyline and created the bases for the continuation of the Weird Girls series and Taran's story in specifically.

Definitely a great read, Let me know if you have read this book and what you thought about the end of Celia's Story.

Book Review: Screwdrivered

Vivian Franklin is a Software designer with a penchant for reading Romance novels. What makes her different is the odd assortment of tattoos and piercings. Viv is kinda floating not really knowing what she wants to do with her life, but hoping that a Bad Boy Mr. Right will come thundering in to sweep her off her feet before her mother finds an Accountant for her to marry.

So when I phone call comes in the middle of the night to inform her that she has inherited a seaside cottage, Viv decides she has just been sweeped up in a romance novel plot complete with a Cowboy bad boy.
Alice Clayton has taken a departure from my favorite characters, Simon and Caroline, but not too far because Viv is one of Simon's friends from high school.

The whole romance story plot line was a little annoying, only because I felt like Viv was smarter than she was being portrayed. I gave this book 4/5 only because I didn't like that aspect of the plot.

If you can't tell I have been reading a lot of short, quick reads. What have you guys been reading lately?

Weekend Reads

So Im going to try to start posting the books I plan to read over the weekend. Some of these books are ARC's so they aren't out yet and some are books that I just haven't gotten around to reading.

So Attachments is a book that I started a while back and walked away from so I plan to finish it this weekend. I like Rainbow Rowell so this really isn't a hardship.

I like Cassandra Clare and I have heard good things about Holly Black so I thought I would give this book a try.

This book is an ARC and won't be released for a while but I will be doing a review on this book.Not sure about the other two books but at least one should end up with a review.

So Happy Weekend reading, What are you guys reading this weekend?

Book Review: Rusty Nailed

Rusty Nailed by Alice Clayton is the continuation of Simon and Caroline's story. Caroline is left in charge of the shop while her boss is away on her honeymoon. She also got the chance to house sit in in the burbs with the hillelevator.

This particular novel allowed me to revisit my favorite characters from Wallbanger. I had really hoped to see an engagement or marriage in this installment, but that was not to be.
Caroline is struggling with the same issues most women in their late 20s early 30s deal with, advancement in their career, marriage, and thoughts of children.

I definitely enjoyed this novel but I would have liked to see a little more advancement in Simon and Caroline's story line, but I definitely don't think that this is the last that we will be seeing of them in this series.

I want a Wedding I tell ya!

Overall I gave this book 4/5 stars, and Alice Clayton still has a fan. I will be reading Screwdrivered shortly and will be providing a review.

Hope you guys have had a Happy Reading Week.
