Deadly Crush review

Published September 6, 2013 by Book Junkette


Hi everyone!!

Today’s review is Deadly Crush, the first in the Deadly trilogy by Ashley Stoyanoff!

All I can say is, zomg!!! I ❤ this book!

I can hear you ask, don’t you ❤ a lot of books??

Yes..yes I do.

I can’t help it! Sexy weres are my weakness! *dramatic swoon*

In this round, our heroine is one Jade Shaw, no relation, hehe.

Jade is strong, sarcastic, stands her ground, even when facing down those always bratty, wannabe alpha she wolves.

Basically, everything a girl could ever want to be in high school.

So why does Jade hate the weres? Because they stole something incredibly important to her.

Gods knows no one hates like a teen girl!

Trust me. Have a teen sister who frequently gives me the silent treatment via ASL.


Enter Aidan, our sexy, sexy, new to town were.


Immediately, he catches Jade’s eye. How could he not?!

Over 6 feet tall, scrumptious, obviously works out AND defends her upon the first meeting!!

Knight in shining armour?! Gimme gimme!!


Sadly, I forsee quite a bit of heartache, bumpy roads and utter betrayals in the future for Jade and Aidan.

Which is such a sad, sad thing, as obviously they are insanely attracted and meant to be together!

Le sigh..The world needs more men like Aidan, if only the wonderful Ashley could bring them to life OUTSIDE the book!

Yes, you heard me right.

This is another book that sucks you in, twists your heart and doesn’t let go.

The imagery is so intense, I often forgot I wasn’t there, in Dog Mountain, living, hating and ultimately fighting alongside Jade and her best friend.

So, my lovelies, check out this book, tell Ashley I sent you and enjoy it, as I have.

Remember: Authors ❤ reviews!

Splintered review!

Published August 31, 2013 by Book Junkette


First of all, welcome to my book blog!!

Today, I am reviewing Splintered by the wonderful A.G. Howard! It’s a delightfully trippy experience down the rabbit hole, into a very different version of Wonderland than Lewis Carroll showed us.

Intrigued? We both know you are, hehe.

Splintered was a gift from a wonderful friend, Rhiannon Paille and from the minute I saw the book, I was smitten.

Hook, line and sinker.

Splintered is about a young heroine, Alyssa, who, as it turns out, is a descendant of Alice Liddell herself!

Plot twist!

Imagine being related to the young girl who inspired a truly great man to write such marvellously clashing stories!

As a massive Wonderland fanatic myself, I was instantly drawn into the story, from the first line describing Alyssa’s unique mosaics to the equally intriguing Morpheus, something of a bad boy in his own right.

Love interest? Not quite.

That would be Jeb, Alyssa’s sk8erboi neighbour and completely oblivious to how Alyssa feels.

Poor Alyssa? Maybe..Morpheus is always there to lend a..hand.

Personally, I’ll take Morpheus and his many fine attributes, over a clueless Jeb any day of the week.

Now, before I go off on a tangent about Morpheus..*dreamy sigh* Back to the book!

Rather than the sweet but slightly odd Wonderland we’re used too, Splintered takes a decidedly morbid twist on its characters.

From a lake of tears, carnivorous plants and dinner that GIGGLES when being eaten, it’s not the same world Alice ventured down.

Instead of the normal characters, these are ‘Netherlings’, capable of things much more eerie and vicious than any seen before.

Imagine bugs that talk, not only the flowers, oysters that take their revenge, lost yet loved toys serving a macabre purpose. Those are just a few of the creatures..sorry, Netherlings that await you in Wonderland.

Oh, did I forget to mention that Morpheus is a Netherling as well? In Alice’s time, he was a much enigmatic character. Time has not changed that, not sure if it could..

Morpheus has my heart, wrapped in his wings and pinned to his hat, which is quite grand and elegant, hehe.

Before I bid you all adieu, I leave you with one of my favourite quotes from the book.

Raising one hand, he tilts his hat to that sexy slant. “You want me. Admit it.”
Even if he’s partly right, I’ll never tell him. “Why would I want you?”
He lifts thee fingers to countdown. “Mysterious. Rebellious. Troubled. All those qualities women find irresistible.”
“Such an optimist.”
“My cup is never empty.”
“Too bad your brain is.” The words bite, but my smile softens with affection.” – Morpheus, Alyssa *Splintered*

If you enjoyed the review, go and pick up a copy of Splintered, say “HI!” to A.G. Howard on her Facebook! Make sure to tell her Tara sent you. 😘
