Happy 2013, Fellow Readers! Can’t believe we’re at the start of a new year already as it seems just like yesterday we were saying hello to 2012!

2012 sure went by fast – and as the saying goes, I guess we didn’t notice because we were just having too much fun!

So join us as we recap and say good-bye to 2012. Here is a list of our most memorable and favorite reads of the year!

2012 Favorite Book:

My Favorite Book of 2012 was The Last Grimm:Red's Hood by H. L. Wampler. Everyone's heard the story of Red Riding Hood, but what about the Grimm family? I love how this story is told from that point of view. I really enjoy reading books that take old ideas and twist them into something brand new and shiny again. That is what you'll find in this book.



2012 Favorite Author:

My Favorite Author of 2012 was Sherrilyn Kenyon. I recently discovered this author and quickly become one of my new favorite authors of the year. She's quick witted, funny, writes cleverly, and makes you feel what the character is feeling which is a bonus.

2012 Favorite Series:

My Favorite Series in 2012 was Rough Riders by Lorelei James. Honestly,  I've too many favorites to really narrow it down so. Rough Riders is just plain smoking hot cowboys that make your mouth water and know how to treat a lady in public, but especially in the bedroom at their every whim. Each Rough Rider book gets better than the one before and worth re~reading again. It seriously makes you want a Rough Rider of your very own.

2012 Favorite Character:

My Favorite Character in 2012 was Zach from Sentinel Wars book called Running Scared. Zach doesn't give up easily even if he wanted too. Zach wants Lexi Johns to be apart of his life forever if he can make her understand and see reason. Zach is striving for complete honesty with Lexi because without her trust he will be just another dead Theronai Warrior.

2012 Favorite book:

My Favorite Book in 2012 was J.R. Ward’s Lover Awakened. I fell so hard for Zsadist as I have such a weak spot for tortured bad boys! I  loved everything about this book.

You definitely need to read this series if you haven’t already.


2012 Favorite author:

My Favorite Author of 2012 (and possibly of all time) is Larissa Ione. Her captivating writing, mixed with all the sexxy paranormal elements I love in a story have me hooked! She engages the reader from the beginning of every novel and takes you on a wild ride filled with nonstop action and hott scorching scenes you won’t soon forget. I fell in love with her Demonica Series and I can’t wait to get into her other books as well.


2012 Favorite series:


My Favorite Series of 2012 was Larissa Ione’s Demonica Series. Each book outdid the last one and I couldn’t get enough of this awesome series. Drop whatever you’re doing and read this series today. I guarantee you won’t be disappointed. It is Paranormal Romance at its absolute best.

2012 Favorite Character:


My Favorite Character/s from 2012 is a three way tie! I can’t pick who I love best between:

1) J.R. Ward’s sexxy vampire hotties from The Black Dagger Brotherhood.

2) Gena Showalter’s deliciously sinful demons and immortals in her Lords of the Underworld Series.

3) Larissa Ione’s demon brothers and friends from her Demonica Series.

They are all so sinfully delicious and make my toes curl! *faints*

2013 Most Anticipated Book:

 The Darkest Craving by Gena Showalter (No cover yet)

I can’t wait to read about William and all his crazy antics.




Sure, I stopped reading this series way back at book 8, but since this is the finale, all I want to know is what happens to Eric. That’s about it. Smile 









I can’t wait to dive into Larissa Ione’s Lord of Deliverance Series! I love her writing and being obsessed with her Demonica Series, I can’t wait to start this one.
