About me

Hi I'm Janna and I am a book whore! I started this blog after being a part of another for years. While being a big blog may be nice I like to stay true to me having a love for books, that's why I blog. I love books and I want to share that love with my readers of this blog. I love to read, books are my escape and a huge part of my life besides my husband and two children. I am honest and sometimes sassy in my reviews but never mean. Some of my favorite authors include Kristen Ashley, Penelope Douglas, T.M. Frazier, M.N. Forgy, Rachel Van Dyken, Meghan March and Vi Keeland to only name a few!

Please note that I am the ONLY reviewer on the blog beyond a few guest reviews. It has been brought to my attention that people not associated with my blog have been requesting ARCs please if you ever question a request please email me at the blog's email.

Throwback Thursday! The Dark Ones By Rachel Van Dyken

In honor of Darkest Temptation releasing next week, I thought having The Dark Ones as this week's Throwback Thursday post would be fitting since it is the beginning of The Dark Ones Saga

To touch a Dark One is death.
To talk to an immortal is suicide.
Yet, I've been marked by both.
A Vampire.
And the King of the immortals.
My life is no longer my own.
And now I know the truth, my life was never mine to begin with.
It was theirs.
It's always been theirs.

I have been making more of an effort to not only read the books that I have had on my kindle for a while now, but also taking more time for what I call “me reads.” These are the books that I am not on a schedule to have read for a specific date, that if I want to review them I can and if I don’t it’s not going to reflect badly on me. Rachel Van Dyken is one of the authors that I am lately addicted to her works. The Dark Ones pulled me into their immortal world from the absolute start and when I finished I wanted the next book right now. It comes out next month but let’s face it I am a book whore and I want what I want and I want the next book. No this isn’t a cliffhanger so don’t start thinking that. If I am correct, each book will focus on a different couple but all the books will be linked.

The Dark Ones at first reminded me of a book from of one my favorite authors, but then slowly it turned and twisted into something different, something darker, and something more. I loved how the suspense was the perfect balance to the romance and the overall storyline. Genesis and Ethan’s story is the beginning of what could be a major prophecy if it does indeed become true. Immortals hope that it will, their race depends on it. What you think are betrayals could possibly be more, and the ones you think wouldn’t betray you might. You must trust when not trusting can mean life or death, literally.

If you are a paranormal fan, if you are a fan of Rachel Van Dyken, hell even if you are just wanting to read something a little different than your normal then The Dark Ones really should be on your TBR lists. I have a feeling that this book whore is going to be sucked into this saga more than once, but then again if it is Ethan doing the sucking, well I won’t be complaining.
