Pitter Patter of Little Thoughts

If I had an addiction, it would probably be books. All kinds of books. There is almost nothing better than curling up with fuzzy pillows, warm blankets, a mug of hot chocolate, and of course a book to fall into. Trying to get a full account of all the books I've read in the past - and also trying to be more diligent about documenting the books I read nowadays (and reviewing them). Thus, all current books I read will be reviewed, and all books I've realized I read in the past will not be reviewed unless I read them again. Also trying to expand my palate in books and genres. There's nothing I love better than a recommended new book in a different genre that surpasses my expectations. Feel free to leave a recommendation ^^

A Tale of Two Cities
Charles Dickens, Stephen Koch
On the Edge -  Ilona Andrews Rose lives in the Edge, a place where misfits straddle the Weird and the Broken, the in-betweens of the world we know and a place where magic is as easy as a flash.

I rather liked this book. It had all the right elements set with a bit of bite and some rather sensual moments. Sure, it's pretty typical, but it was done well.

Characters are nicely portrayed and I love how Rose doesn't just fall in love at first sight. There is definitely a progression that is believable - something not seen often in paranormal romances. One complaint I have is that the characters seem to monologue a lot and reveal their deeper secrets at the drop of a hat without a blink of an eye. It's too easy for them to open up. But as everything else is done quite nicely, I can overlook that.

The world is fairly flat, this in between world. I would've loved to see more besides the little techniques, but unfortunately this books is more about character development rather than world building.

This book hits all the right notes for me - action, strong protagonist, a bit of tightly burning lust, sassy remarks, and a good ending.

Three stars because it's not exactly something I'm raving about, but it's good. Recommended for those who love a good romance that is actually believable.
