Yule Tidings -- Great Reads for December!

Into the Night

The Latest in Paranormal Romance and Urban Fantasy

Mixed feelings when a series ends

"oh no, it's over!" Have you ever had mixed feelings about a series you have read and enjoyed coming to an end? You might be relieved that the heroine gets her happily-ever-after or be thinking "No Ė there is so much more they can do!" That is exactly where I stand on the ending of Keri Arthur's Read More...



What are you reading in January?

Breath of Fire by Read More...



The Ultimate Summer Reading List

Here in Toronto, the sun is finally out, and it looks like itís here to stay. Many people have thrown on the shorts and sunglasses, and color splashes every article of clothing and makeup. I think itís safe to say that summer is officially here. But even if it isnít quite as warm where you live, that doesnít mean you canít get ready for the hottest summer releases! June is Read More...



You're My Hero: Male POVs in Romance and Urban Fantasy

With the celebration of Fatherís Day this month, I wanted to take a moment here to talk about the presence of men in books. In Urban Fantasy and Paranormal Romance especially, male leads are very important to the storyline. A good hero can either make or break a book. In my reading experience, if I donít like a hero in a Romance book, thatís it. That pretty much ends all chances that Read More...



Paranormal Evolution: A New Side to PNR

If we rewind about five or six years ago, I discovered Paranormal Romance for the very first time. The genre was about to reach its peak with the presence of vampires and werewolves on the big and small screen. Since then, however, there have been plenty more books written and released. Some follow the same tried and true trends of Paranormal Romance but others, like the ones I will recommend this week, are books that Read More...



Young Adult Novels to Watch for!

The month of May is rife with Young Adult releases but the ones I have chosen are a little bit more special because they have that have a paranormal twist to them! If you're like me, you are looking forward to these releases. Personally, I'm a lover of both YA and PNR so whenever I find a series that combines the two, they tend to get pushed up on my TBR pile. Authors Read More...



Poll: Are Novellas Worth the Read?

Are you a fan of short stories or novellas? Frankly I have a love/hate relationship with them. I love them because they are a great way to discover new authors and to try out a series before investing. This is especially important for series that are long-standing (i.e. have over ten books in the series already). Short stories are also fun if you're anxiously awaiting the newest installment to your favorite Read More...



On the TBR list - What's on Your To Be Read List?

Finally we are headed into spring with the month of April but other than looking forward to the warmer weather, there's also plenty more in the book world to get excited about. April has so many releases that I've been anxiously awaiting so for this week's recommendations, I wanted to share what I plan on reading and hopefully you'll find them interesting enough to add them to your own to-be Read More...



Vampires, Shifters, Valkyries, Oh My!

Not too long ago, the genre blew up with paranormal stories. Readers were gobbling up these stories like they were desserts, devouring them in mere hours. As a Paranormal Romance fan myself, I was one of these rabid readers and in that time, I've found some of my all-time favorite series and authors. At the top of the pack were vampire stories. Suddenly the threatening fangs and pale skin were seen as a Read More...



Read the Write Way

This March get ready to be bombarded left and right with hot new releases that are sure to keep you spellbound for the rest of the month! All of the books I'll be talking about today will probably be familiar to you as they are written some bestselling authors. Their series have been chart toppers numerous times and been loved by many readers. But instead of talking more about each series and its characters Read More...



What Makes a Heroine?

Scroll down and take a quick look at the covers of this weekís recommendations. What do you see? The first thing you may have noticed is that all the covers feature a strong woman. Thatís no coincidence because in the Urban Fantasy genre, itís the lead heroine that runs the show. We as the reader see the world through their eyes, making it crucial that we feel a connection to the heroine Read More...



My Favourite Moments in Romance

With the quick approach of Valentineís Day, I wanted to celebrate this holiday by sharing my all-time favorite scenes in Romance. After years of reading Romance, I had so many good scenes to choose from but I will admit that it wasnít hard to pick out my top two favorites. These are scenes that constantly stand out in my mind. I remember reading them for the first time and feeling my heart Read More...



Reading Remedy: A Book to Fit Every Mood

Itís that time of the year when our moods drop. The holidays are over and for many, the cold, winter months make the everyday seem like an impossible task. Itís also a month for change. People are trying to reorganize their priorities, hoping to take better care of themselves or start new endeavors. Itís easy to get lost in the process and overstress yourself. Thankfully thereís something I can rely out Read More...



The Anatomy of a Book Cover!

Over the years, Iíve come across several eye-catching covers. Some covers have been so striking that Iíve added them to my to-be-read mountain immediately. Whether itís a hot man on the cover or a truly artistic depiction of a character, covers can certainly make or break a book. Thatís why this week, I want to go over what I think makes for a great book cover! First off Read More...



A Look Back into 2015 and New Releases to Look Forward in 2016

Has 2015 been good for you, reading-wise? Looking back on this past year, I can definitely recall many books that have either made me laugh or cry. Those ones are sitting proudly on my keeper shelf and will no doubt be ones Iíll be returning to again and again. For me personally, I think J.R. Ward has had a fabulous year. Not Read More...



Perfect Reads for the Holidays Part Two!

Welcome back! This week will be part two of my Holiday Recommendations. So donít forget to check out part one if you missed it! Now this weekís recommendations are packed full with action and romance, a lethal combination that I think have become a fan favorite amongst Paranormal Romance readers. At this time of the year when things can be a little crazy Read More...



Perfect Reads for the Holidays!

Whether you like it or not Christmas and the holidays are quickly approaching! I think for most of us itís the busiest time of the year. Many of you will be shopping for gifts for family and friends or trying out some new recipes to make sure that on the big day nothing goes awry. Or perhaps youíre one of those well- organized people who have everything all set and ready to go Read More...



Dragons Galore!

Feel like heating things up? Well, youíre in luck because the month of November is rife with new dragon stories. Dragons are no doubt some of my favorite paranormal creatures. Authors have taken traditional mythos and have really made them their own in their respective series. While some series are set in the current time period, there are also some that take place in alternate fantasy worlds, showing how versatile dragons can be. If Read More...



It's Not All about Blood and Gore: The Fun and Feisty in Paranormal Romance and Urban Fantasy

Welcome to the world of the Paranormal! If youíre new here, this is the place where I chat about the latest and greatest releases in the Paranormal Romance and Urban Fantasy genre. No, wait! Before you leave thinking that we only talk about vampires that sparkle in the sun, youíre wrong. Paranormal Romance isnít all just about angst and blood. Thereís a lighter side to it as well. A side that Read More...



Into the Night | Halloween Reads to Make You Howl!

October is the month for all things furry and fanged! In my opinion, October is the best month of the whole year because itís a time of change and transformation. The weather is cooler, the leaves are beginning to change colors. There is also one night where you can dress up in silly costumes and paint your face various different colors and not be considered weird. Always wanted to be a vampire? Well, now Read More...



Does Size Matter? Are Short Stories in a Series Worth the Read?

In some series, thereís usually one or two short stories or novellas that are either released in anthologies, a compilation of shorter stories in one book with other authors or on their own as ebook shorts. Although set at a lower price, not everyone is a fan of these short style of stories because they donít offer the same experience as a full-length novel can. But does that mean you should skip Read More...



Into the Night | Hot Reads for the Fall

With September already more than halfway through and the first day of autumn occurring yesterday, Iím sad to say that summer has finally come and gone. Aw, come on now. Donít get all depressed! Thereís still plenty to look forward to! So many activities are available at your fingertips. If the landscape around you starts to change, why not make the most of it? Try taking a hike, taking time to stop Read More...



The Best of the Best: Warriors Heroes in Romance!

Even in alternate worlds where vampires and shifters roam freely, there are always a group of men (sometimes including women!) that are considered the best of the best. In the our world, we have the men and women in service who put their lives in danger everyday and these books arenít much different from that. These characters are either skilled in combat, have a great amount of knowledge about something very important or even Read More...



I Smell Shifters!

This week Iím getting a little shifty. Why you ask? Well, thatís because the month of August is rife with sexy shifter releases! Iíve always been a fan of shifter stories but my favorites are have always been about dragon and wolf shifters. Dragon shifters have become more prominent now following the likes of G.A. Aikenís Dragon Kin Read More...



Series Reading Order: The Beginning, the Middle and the End

Itís rare to find a standalone book nowadays. Most books youíll find on the shelves are always part of a series. A series is when you have multiple books set in the same world, sometimes following the same characters. The great thing about this is that once you find a world that enchants you or you meet new characters you adore, there is always more to discover when its part of a series Read More...
