Blurb: The monster showed up after midnight. As they do.

But it isn’t the monster Conor’s been expecting. He’s been expecting the one from his nightmare, the one he’s had nearly every night since his mother started her treatments, the one with the darkness and the wind and the screaming…

This monster is something different, though. Something ancient, something wild. And it wants the most dangerous thing of all from Conor.

It wants the truth.

Happy Holidays, a year in review, and here’s a list of books to read!

First off, Happy Holidays (if you celebrate that sort of thing)! Happy Wednesday/Thursday if you do not.

So this year was a tough one. Not to give you guys too big a glimpse into my personal life but basically it went like this:

January: wow! Look at all these books on my TBR! I have such a big reading and reviewing schedule planned. I love reading. I love blogging. I love the give and take between writers and readers! I need to do this more often. My mind is made up. Our readers better watch out cause they’re about to be astounded by the sheer number and beauty of these reviews!!!

February – August: …

September: wow! I have not blogged in months! Read a lot though…I kinda miss the blog. And facebook. And twitter. So what the heck, I’ll get back into it. {saunters slowly over to iloveyafiction.com}

October – December: Blog/Read/Social Media repeat

If you felt like skipping Judith’s year in review, that’s ok. In a nutshell, I didn’t review a lot and I’m sorry. Hope you managed to get by and found some other stuff to read. If you did, please email me with a title/author cause I will have ten days to do nothing but read.

Romance Review: Angel by Laura Lee…you must buy this book!

Angel by Laura Lee

Published by: Itineris Press

Format: Paperback ARC/Kindle PDF

Genre: M/M Contemporary Romance

Reviewed by: Judith

2 years ago, I was at Book Expo America for the first time, generally walking around a big open space in a book daze. People would look at my badge, see “Reviewer”, and thrust books right into my open hands. Free books were everywhere! And I took them ALL! Thank god I did because little did I know that I held in my hands a book that was to become my top M/M read of all time. I’m serious here. This book is the one I urge everyone to read.

I’ll give you fair warning now: Angel isn’t a flashy book; there’s no crazy drama or gorgeous hunks. There’s no fantastic sex, trash talk, or impossible situations. There’s not even a happily ever after. But what there is, is a finely crafted love story which really spoke to me on a deeper level than I could ever describe adequately here. All I can say is you must give this book a chance and hopefully it will touch you as deeply as it did me.

Let’s rant about NA!

Hi, guys! 2014 is coming to a fast and ignoble end and finally it happened. We’ve hit that point – you know that point. The one we hit where we’ve read so many books, this time of the New Adult variety, that quite a few commonalities have begun to surface and we just can’t take it anymore. We have to rant! Let’s just jump right into this shall we cause we can’t hold off and be nice any longer. BTW this is so NSFW or people under the age of 18 or anyone but us really cause we are all about to start swearing and talking about girl bits and it won’t be pretty.

You’ve been warned.
