Penny’s Rating B+ ~ When I first hear the words: frog-shifter paranormal romance, my first thought was, I am skeptical. What? I was. I wasn’t sure in spite of the bizarre plethora of stuff that I read, (which, let’s be honest, includes a fair amount of shifter paranormal romance, mostly of the werewolf persuasion) that a three-way frog-shifter romance was going to work. I was pleasantly surprised and my skepticism proven wron...

Penny’s Rating: A ~I have had this review on my to-do list for far too long. First of all, let me say that this is a great series. The Rebuilding Year was one of the books I read within my first year of discovering gay fiction. I love it then and have reread it several times over the past few years. So when Kaje Harper announced that she was releasing a sequel, I knew that reviewing it was inevitable. Let me preface this by saying that i...

Penny’s Rating: B It’s been a while since I read a YA fairy-tale that I really enjoyed. This is a super-cute quick read, that just happens to have an inter-species (Gnome/Human) age appropriate romance. This is also book one in a series: The Town of Superstition, so if you want to read something that doesn’t end on a to be continued cliffhanger, this is not that book. There are going to be three in the series, and if you read...

Penny’s Rating: ~ B ~ Do not, I repeat, do not, get your love/ dating advice from a magazine. I spent most of this book going “No Chance, don’t listen to the article, Chance, just be yourself!” That is ultimately the awkwardly painful lesson of this book. Be true to yourself, because that is what others are drawn to. Yelling at fictional characters is very therapeutic for me. Chance Cesar, the utterly fabulous gender-fl...

 ~Penny’s Series Rating: A ~ SO this wasn’t a review I planned on doing, but I ended up enjoying this series so much that I wanted to give it a shout out. I am in love with this series. I’ll be honest, I don’t love every mystery I pick up. But this is mystery with a side of exquisite, yell out loud at the fictional character’s you are reading about, angst. I will admit, I read all five books in three days. I barel...

~Penny’s Rating: A ~ After reading Lonely Hearts, I have come to the following conclusions: 1. This series rocks. 2. I now want to own a Tesla. 3. I want to relive my college years at St. Timothy, and sing my aca-scuse me ass off. (I may be combining this with a Pitch Perfect fantasy…) 4. I have a renewed obsession with all things Studio Ghibli, especially Howl’s Moving Castle. I am so glad that Baz and Elijah got their story...
