The Complete Fifty Shades of Jezebel by Melinda DuChamp

I purchased this book from Amazon to read. All opinions are my own. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 The Complete Fifty Shades of Jezebel by Melinda DuChamp. I started this one after reading The Complete Fifty Shades of Alice and I must say while I enjoyed the Alice themed book, this one was much better. Its erotic scenes were steaming and it was written to the reader so it feels like during narration the author is talking to you not just writing a story. If erotica is your genre this one is definitely worth the money to read.

#murdertrending by Gretchen McNeil

My husband purchased this book for me as a Christmas gift. All opinions are my own. (He’s sweet like that). 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 #murdertrending by Gretchen McNeil. Dee is sentenced to death by a Judge, when she wakes up she finds herself on Alcatraz 2.0 under the watchful eyes of the public posting about impending death. A seventeen year old trapped on an island full of mass murders, serial killers, and assassins, she will never survive. The odds are not in her favor. She trusts no one and no one likes her until she proves she’s smarter than her past and she is capable of standing her ground. She outsmarts the best if the best in hopes of finding who framed her for the murder of her sister. I have no idea why I liked this one so much. Maybe the action packed pages or maybe the idea of something different and fresh. Who knows? But it was a great, fun read and you should definitely read it.

The Complete Fifty Shades of Alice by Melinda DuChamp

I purchased this book from Amazon to read. All opinions are my own. 🌟🌟🌟🌟 The Complete Fifty Shades of Alice by Melinda Duchamp. This erotica trilogy features The Fifty Shades of Alice In Wonderland, Fifty Shades of Alice Through the Looking Glass, and Fifty Shades of Alice at The Hellfire Club. This is the first erotica book I have ever reviewed and I’m not sure what I should say. It’s a fairly easy read and quite comical. There really is no plot but it spins off the classic Fairytale Alice in Wonderland. You will never think of Alice the same way after reading this series. I found myself laughing through most of the book. The sex is not steaming and romanticizing, and by no means is it innocent.

City of Bones by Cassandra Clare

I received this book as a gift from my bestie Christina. All opinions are my own. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 City of Bones by Cassandra Clare Book 1 of The Mortal Instruments Series. Clary is a wild-child teen until strange things happen and her mother is kidnapped by Demons, or some sort of Underworld evil and her new found friend Jace and his siblings help her navigate the story of what happened and why she sees what others don’t. Their discovering leads to things you can’t undo and things neither of them saw coming. Her best friend Simon feels like they are coming undone and is rude but Clary navigates their worlds until they all collide into a secret none of them wanted to be true.
